yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
“May 8, 2018
Target date for Ontario universities to receive second-semester midterm and interim grades for full-year courses from the OUAC. Grades that the OUAC receives earlier will be sent to Ontario universities when received.”
What does this mean? Like lets say my midterm marks is an 83% avg and it increased to lets say an 87% avg before May 8 would they look at that mark (is this interim) or midterms??

So I realized a few people got accepted into architecture at U of T (Daniels) in February. Im assuming they're doing a second round of offers now and so has anyone gotten their acceptances bc im still waiting loolll....
Hi everyone, first year engineering student at UofT willing to answer your questions! Feel free to ask about admissions, skule-work, extracurricular activities, scholarships, employment and so on! Edit: I also commute 100 km everyday so you can ask me about that as well!
Please allow me a few days to reply to your responses due to my schedule being pretty hectic!
I am a grade 10 student and I am going to write the OSSLT in less than a month right now. The OSSLT is a literacy exam for grade 10 students that is administered all throughout Ontario by the government. You need to pass it in order to graduate.
I'm very curious about something though... What if I decide to "troll" on this exam? For example, the exam will have us write a news report. So, what if I choose very absurd and stupid names of people and places in the report? What if I wanted Kim Jong Un in my news report? What if in the news report, a school event take place in Hopeless Dreams High School? What do you think will happen? Would my marks on this exam drop?
I am currently a grade 11 student in second semester and have began to look into become a chiropractor. I havent done amazing in the 2 science courses that I have taken and for those reasons I was wondering if it would be better for me to apply for a Bachelor in Kinesiology rather than Sciences. However, I have been looking online and have not been able to see if I can get into chiropractic school with a Bachelor in Kinesiology. All they’re talking about is a 2.50GPA after 3rd year. I wasn’t just wondering if anybody has any information. It will all be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I have seen a lot of discussion on the forums saying that Queen's University usually sends acceptances on Wednesdays, and a lot of people anticipated that the University of Toronto would be doing their March round this week. Similarly, does anyone know when Western will do acceptances? I get that no one probably will but I'll just ask anyway in case. Thank you in advance.
