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.
my written and video essay questions were kind of similar to eachother so i ended up with similar answers to both of them as well. Will this jeopardize my chances of getting in? I have a 93 avg with a 86 in eng and 94 in calc
Hey guys! I just submitted my application for SHAD 2016, so I'm wondering who else already submitted? :) I don't know if there's already a SHAD 2016 thread so I just decided to start one. If there already is one, can someone direct me there?
I am having a hard time deciding between which school would be better for Kinesiology: Queen's or McMaster. Can you please list some of the pros/cons of each program, and which one they think is better/more reputed (and why)? Thanks so much!
Hey there! I just got early acceptance into Guelph in the enviro. science program (yay!) however I am planning to stay at my high school for one more year to take some extra courses I never got a chance to take. I was looking through the booklet I got and it said nothing about deferrals. I was wondering how I could defer to Guelph, or I guess request a deferral? Do I just have to write to them and tell them my situation and why I'd like to defer? Thanks!
Hey guys! Just wanted to make a thread to see who has been admitted to a kinesiology program for fall 2016! If you've been admitted, could you please comment which university, when you applied, and your average! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
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!
I'm wondering if it is possible to switch between life sciences and physical and mathematical sciences programs at U of T? Like what if I get into life sciences but decide after first year or something that I want to go into physical sciences?
Same for McMaster, is it possible to switch between life and chemical and physical science?
Should I apply to both life and physical or should I just apply to one and switch if I really want to later? What if I get accepted to one but not the other?
So im in grade 12, applied for Mac general Engineering, Ryerson Aerospace Eng and Carleton Aerospace Eng. My marks are as follows:
English - 84
Advanced Functions - 89
Calculus - 91 (religiously busted my ass practicing before the semester began)
Business Leadership - 86
Chemistry - yet to take
BUT HERE IS THE JUICY BIT.
Physics. Oh physics... I decided to fast track that in a semester in grade 11 (fast track grade 12 physics), did poorly (lack of concentration) AND got a concussion. I finished with a 43 LOL (I couldve pulled my mark up but I was in bed half brain dead). But then I took it again this semester and got a 70. Was at an 81 but bombed an ISU and exam (sort of, keep reading). I swear Im less dumb than it sounds. So anyway, I "technically" did a REPEAT of GRADE 12 PHYSICS and got a 70 on my REPEAT... Should I do it again? Buy the credit for a 90 privately? Leave it as such? Perhaps hang myself? (No I won't but you know what I mean). I am scared shitless.
A funny story, this was my exam marks:
INQUIRY - 19/20 (1 QUESTION that covers all units with 2 parts)
COMMUNICATION - 8/10
K/U - 14/30 multiple choice was the death of me
WILL I STILL GET ACCEPTED AND IF NOT WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT PHYSICS
Hi, I applied to Ryerson accounting a few months back and I was wondering if there are any prerequisite requirements? In my application portal for Ryerson there's a link that takes me to the list of programs that the university offers and I clicked on accounting to double check and all it says is that I maintain an 80-84% + average. There's no mention of any prerequisite grade requirements, however, when I did a Google search I found a 'future students' page from the Ryerson Uni website and it states that I need a 75% minimum grade in English,calculus,and advanced functions and as an overall average to be considered for their accounting program. So, do they just look at your overall average or prerequisites as well? The reason I'm asking is because I scored 5% below the required grade for advanced functions...am I completely screwed?
Hi, I am currently attending University of Western Ontario for the Medical Sciences Program.
I am happy to answer any questions that anyone may have about the program, course load, and overall experience at Western!
A bit about myself:
I attended a high school within Ontario and received my acceptance to Med Sci in January (or early February?). I was also accepted to multiple science programs from other universities including, but not limited to: U of T, Waterloo, York, McMaster, Queen's, Ryerson, and Guelph.
Post questions down below and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible!
I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.
Hi, i was just wondering how the video interview is done. In Schulich, I was given 3 questions and given 45 seconds the answer. How is it done in Rotman. Can we practice the question before we actually do it or are the questions random. Thanks
