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.

Ok I'm a grade 12 student this year, right now I have 25 credits doing 4 credits in day school I need that one credit to graduate. Usually our graduation would be in October but out of nowhere they push it to June. I was intended to do night school this semester but I have cold feet right now and I feel like I will fail it or do poorly. Right now I'm kinda stressed about my courses I'm taking grade 12 law with no grade 11 knowledge and I feel overwhelm in that and I also feel overwhelm in bussines and in grade 12 parenting. I feel like I'm adding to much to my plate if I just do these courses (I don't even want to do law that much) and have night school. My question here is if I do summer school then can I be able to graduate on time before September 2016? I don't care I can't go to commenment in June I care about graduating and being able to go to college or University. Has anyone dealt with this before and what did you do?
I want to either study biology or physics. But I don't know what to do for getting a job. Obviously I'll need more education after my BSc. As far as I'm aware there's only like 4 options for jobs: doctor (or other health care professional), researcher, teacher, or professor. These are all too competitive so I'm at a roadblock of what I want to do. I think I want to get a MD-PhD but I don't know.
I am currently trying to get into Waterloo Software Engineering. I am in grade 11, so I still have another year to improve my grades. My average (from the prerequisite courses) is currently an 85. I will be completely honest with you guys, I am not a hard working student. I study the basic material the previous day before a test. I also complete assignments the day before they are due. I do not do any of the assigned homework that teachers give me. So, considering these factors, I am surprised to have this kind of average.
That being said, my goal is to get a 95+ average for grade 12 so I can get into Waterloo Software Engineering. I often see students on this forum who have close to a 99 average. I was just wondering what I could do to attain such a high average. General comments like "work harder" would not really help me. I keep thinking to myself "I will work harder next semester", but I never really do this in reality. If I could get advice from a student who has a 95+ average, that would be greatly appreciated. I would also be interested in hearing the opinions of first year uni students who had a 95+ average in grade 12, and their current academic situation in uni.
ok i am looking at applying to life science programs, i want to go to dentistry and since they obviously dont have pre med or pre dental programs i feel life sciences would be suitable, but anyones, mac is obviously much higher to get into, but offer coop which is +++, utm is literally outside my door which is ++++, not that hard to get in ++, does not offer coop :(, and is apparantly hard to stay in, waterloo i would have to life on residence, however it is easier to get into (then mcmaster), AND has coop, so just wondering, thoughts???? also if you have any other program recommendations as a predental id love to hear
also i really would ike coop, its great for xp and for paying for tuition, but thing is, utm theres no coop, but i wouldnt have to pay for res, waterloo offers coop, but id have to live on res, i dont know how much res is or how much you make from coop but just pointing that out
I'm a current 3rd year student at Ryerson, majoring in professional communications and minoring in law and marketing. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty.
I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! AMA!
So I just got accepted to U of T based off of my grade 11 marks (87 average) and it says that the College I got into was University College. I put Trinity as my #1 and was really hoping to get into Trin. My semester 1 average is a 90, and I was wondering if either a) people have already been accepted into Trinity and b) if it's not to late to still get accepted into Trinity, if I already have an official offer from University College.
So I want to go to university for law... But in in my 2nd semester of grade 11 and I chose to take physics this year. My school allows a class change if you don't like your class but the only other class available was grade 12 English, so I took it. Now I'm having regrets because I not only have friends in the physics class, but I feel like I would be better in a grade 11 class. I had a 70% in grade 10 math and an 86% in grade 10 science. Would those marks be good enough to get around above a 70 in physics. I'm just really stressed cuz I don't want to have 2 englishes in the same year. Thanks in advance!
On the front page of joinid, it says that I got admitted to the computer science program. But when I press check status, it still says pending. Is this a bug? I haven't received any email notification either.
