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!

I want to pursue a career in law. I will be starting my 1st year of university in the fall 2016. I will be going into the faculty of arts and social sciences. I want to be a corporate lawyer, so what do i major and minor in???????????
I am in grade 12 right now and I plan on going to laurier to do my BBA next year. I just want to know how hard the program is starting from first year, not in terms of coop or anything but just maintaining the average to stay in the program (70 in business courses, 60 in others). I took easy courses in high school but I have the ability to study a lot when needed and that is why I am wondering if I will be able to maintain the average.
I applied to the mechanical engineering program in u of t and I finished the online personal profile this afternoon, I was really nervous and did a terrible job. Now I wonder if I will be rejected by u of t because of the videos (my average is currently 88).
It's time to pick and submit our grade 12 courses for the new school year and I don't know if I should take all three maths: Advanced Functions, Calc/Vec and Data Management (all U courses) My goal is to apply to a nursing undergrad program at UofT, Western and Queen's. I don't know which math course would benefit me because I don't want to fill my timetable with hard courses that are not necessary. Anyone tips/help?
If you have any questions on the University of Waterloo's Conditional Admission to Pharmacy (CAP) program this year and are interested in applying, dont hesitate to ask them here! I'll try to answer them as best as I can!
For those of you who dont know what CAP is, it's basically a program designed for students who wish to pursue a field in pharmacy in the future. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE HERE: https://uwaterloo.ca/pharmacy/future-students/conditional-admission-pharmacy-cap ALSO be sure to check out the FAQ section too because they usually cover a lot of your questions there.
NOTE: Applications will be available starting October 9, 2015
It's course selection month and I am unsure if I would like to take it again in gr 11. I'm currently taking French right now but I'm not exactly sure if I like it since there is a lot of assignments and I am taking some science courses next year
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've recently been accepted to ryerson (YAY!!) and was wondering if there's an applicant group like there is with western and I'm sure many other schools? I'd really love to talk to people who applied to the same things as me
Hi everyone! I am a grade 11 student in Ontario and my career choice and dream is to become a nurse practitioner, I didn't do too well in Chem 78% and Bio 73% (11 University) and now I'm really freaking out with reading all these posts. I know I have the ability to do better than the marks I got which sounds ludicrous but I just know. I'm taking all the science courses, advanced functions, data management and calc/vectors. My aunt who is a nurse practitioner and is still continuing her studies told me to take data management but i don't know if calc/vectos will benefit me. I also had university world issues in mind as well as kinesology. Do you guys think I should take a spare? I will be taking 12U English in summer school and I haven't decided if I should take a course in night school. I know these marks look really bad for nursing but I know I could get better marks. My top choices are UofT, Western and Queens. I'm in desperate need of help with getting my courses organized, if you guys have tips or anything it would be greatly appreciated because I am freaking out right now.
I didnt do so well in biology 12, i got 69% which is bad, i know. I want to however, pursue a career in law. my other courses that semester were law - 89%, history- 90% and marketing- 94%. will having a low bio mark, affect anything?
I am planning on going into computer science and have done some research myself most universities in BC require Precalc 12 and one of Physics/Chem/Biology12. As well as one to three other approved courses. Currently I have already chosen
AP Computer Science Principle,
that's 3/8 courses, adding english 12 and GT that would be 5/8.
I have narrowed my list down to
Spare or Study Block(where u get to work on your own stuff in the library)
Student Aide(basically a class where you are a Teacher's Asistance)
I want to take something that'd givve me a high mark, so I have more chance getting acceptance into University. Anyone know which one should I choose?
I am also planning on taking AP computer science online since my school does not offer it.
Hello! I am currently a senior in high school and am hoping to get into Ryerson Journalism, my top and only choice. This program has been my dream for years, and I need some tips on how to get in. I am currently averaging about 83% and taking maths (big mistake), and am also currently writing for my high school french newspaper. I have a few questions for those who have been accepted or declined or planning on applying:
1) What average should I aim for in my top six?
2) What average should I aim for in English?
3) Where can I find newspaper writing opportunities to add to my application?
