Will my admission offer to UBC be revoked?
I'm really stressed  that I am going to get my admission revoked. 

I was accepted into UBC Faculty of Science with a 93.25 average (my top 4) and it has dropped to an 87. I am extremely worried that I am going to get my admission revoked. Will that happen? If it does, I don't know what I am going to do...

UBC-V Sciences Revocation?
Help! I am really afraid/really certain that I will get an admission revocation because there is more than a 20% (a 28%) discrepancy between my English 12 course mark and the English 12 Provincial Exam mark... They will use my English Provincial mark instead of the blended mark to re-calculate my admission average. And that new average is more than 5% (actually 7%) from my average in Term 2...

Advice PLEASE! Will I have to appeal? Advice on what to put in the appeal? Do you think I will get in after writing an appeal letter? Anybody else revoked? Anyone get revoked but then appealed and got back in?

I heard that in the past, only people that get revoked get contacted... has that changed?
When and will I get a confirmation or revocation email (when in August)? By phone? Anyone who got their appeal approved, when were you notified that?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

McMaster Health Science Program-2016 Applicants
Hey guys, 

I am going into grade 12 in September. I have been doing a lot of soul searching about what kinds of programs and stuff I wish to apply to. One of my top choices is McMaster Health Sciences and I'm sure it is many other peoples top choices as well. Ever since I was young i knew I wanted to do something in the health field, mainly to help other people out. I have always LOVED science, especially biology and chemistry. We can use this discussion page to talk about the program and stuff. 

These are my other top programs:
-Life Sciences at McMaster
-Medical Sciences at Western
-Health Sciences at Western
-Biochemistry at Western 
-Biomedical Science at Waterloo

If anyone was or is in McMaster's Health Science program, I was wondering what do you think makes a successful applicant? How did you decide to enter this program?

First year Med Sci student, happy to answer questions!
UPDATE: keep track of my journey through my blog (https://followmetomd.wordpress.com/)! After numerous comments on this forum, I decided to start up my own blog to help guide all that are interested in pursuing medicine, and keep you guys updated on my journey. Follow my blog, and do not hesitate to leave comments with questions, comments, suggestions that you may have. Cheers!

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! 
Repeated course
Hi, I am a grade 11 student and I took a grade 12 English credit in summer school. I got a 74% in the course as my final. I want to upgrade my mark by taking private school in August. I want to apply for university of waterloo and University of Toronto. My program avg for Waterloo is low 80s, and for U of t is low 70s to low 80s. The program that I want to go into is physical sciences. My question is do you think I can still get into these universities without upgrading my English mark or do you think I need to upgrade it to get into waterloo of U of t. Also I found out that waterloo doesn't care if you repeat a course as long as you are not applying for a math or engineering program. I am not sure about University of Toronto  because I am applying for a science program and I don't know if they would care or do anything because I redid the course.

Thanks for the help!

Hi, i'm going into gr 12 and looking at the Schulich business school and i hear that your math mark should be around an 88 just to be considered, is this true? I got an 80% in gr 11 math and studied, If I study even harder next year, what is the highest I can get in AF, and will it be good enough? Can you maybe post your past marks for reference? Thanks.

Calling all yconic members!
We know it’s hard to think about but it’s almost that time of year again. Tell us your top 3 “Must Haves” for back to school and you could be featured in yconic's newest article.

Example:              1. My trusty Herschel backpack
                               2. Red TOMS shoes
                               3. My lucky pen

U of T - Ask me anything!

I'm a student at the University of Toronto, planning to pursue either an Economics or Economics and Mathematics Specialist.

I understand that the University of Toronto is a popular destination for many Secondary School graduates, so I thought I'd offer up my expertise and answer any questions you may have.

I can help dispel (or confirm!) scary rumours, answer questions about the application process, or whatever is on your mind. My specific knowledge is of Maths and Economics, so I can help applicants planning to enter that field.

*Note: There has been some interest in the sale of my ECO100Y notes among entering students. I do have prepared a large document including all relevant graphs, equations and definitions - complete with explanations and descriptions. If you're interested, feel free to send me a message on the forums.

**Note: Please do not use this thread to ask whether your entrance grades are good enough. I don't really know, and don't pretend to.

I strive in literacy based courses such as English and Law but when it comes to Math I completely suck. I am in grade 12 considering learning math all the way up to grade 12 university level. Any tips on where I should begin and how to tackle it?

Hi everyone I am going to grade 12 in September. I am going to apply to the nursing program at Western, Ryerson and hopefully Queens as well as the life science program at UofT. My schedule is pretty loaded and I don't know  if I need to take 12U physics for life sciences at UofT because the requirement page just says some programs recommend or require the course. I completed the 11U physics course. please help!!

Career in Accounting (CPA) or Finance (CFA)?
I'm going into my first year at UTSC pursuing a BBA and I've been wondering what career to pursue. I thought I liked accounting but I'm really interested in investments and finance. My high school teacher (who taught both accounting and finance for me) said I should pursue finance rather than accounting because I seemed more interested in it. 

I am not that great in mathematics and I'm scared about failing either pathway.

The questions I have are:

1. Is choosing finance a better career move than accounting?

2. Is a job in finance riskier than accounting?

3. Because my math skills aren't great, do you think hard work and determination in pulling up my finance and calculus grades will help me to succeed?

4. What opportunities should I pursue after University?
