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!

Laurier BBA (no answer yet) Brock BBA (no answer yet)
I first choice is Laurier but does anybody know if they take people with high 80s into their BBA program? If I get into Laurier, I'll probably go there but if I don't get that, out of Ryu and Brock, which is better?
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 in gr.11 and I'm stressing about what programs I want to apply to next year. I think I've been thinking more about what my dream school is than the programs I want to take. Mcgill and U of T are my top choice. Torn between Nursing or maybe law in the future. I like history, chemistry and bio. But I struggle to get a 76% is math. Is nursing a good idea if I don't excel in math. I need to figure out what I want to do with my life by next year. My average this semester was a 89% this semester which I feel is super low compared to everyone else's, Do I even have a chance? Help!!!!!!
I applied into Mechanical Engineering at McGill, their cut-off last year was 95%.
I'm walking into the application with an average of 95.6-95.8%. My marks are, chemistry 30: 99 math 30: 98 physics 30: 97 french 30-9y: 98 english 30: 86 <--- this really screwed me over, i had 93 before :/
Is it likely that I'll even be considered, since the cut-off goes up by the year.
I applied for U of T engineering on December 10th, and for almost a month now it has said: "Your application has been reviewed and is now complete. Your application will be sent for review to the Admission Committee within the coming weeks"
However, I know someone who applied a day or two before me and I reached that status only a few days after he did. However, his was reviewed by the Admission Committee about 2 weeks ago. Is there a reason mine would be taking so much longer?
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 post a lot here and I figured I just do a AMA. Please note that this is going to be a serious discussion so if you feel the need to troll this thread, please do it elsewhere or just don't do it at all. It really doesn't contribute to anything.
A lot of HS seniors are spending the winter holidays working on their university applications so hopefully I can shed some light on UTSC Co-op Management which is really under rated on this forum and maybe some of you will consider applying. That said, I will be as objective as I can but there will be some bias.
Schools I applied to in Grade 12:
UTSC Management Co-op
90% HS average
Completed 2 co-ops at Fortune 100 Company
3 Study Terms Left, 1 Co-op Left
Interviews for First Co-op: Banks, GE, Small Accounting Firms
Second Co-op: Multiple Return Offers
What is the difference between Co-op vs. Internships?
Many employers are opting to choose this route because of a tax credit. What does this do for the student? Well, since the employer is receiving a credit, they can choose to pay you more. Example: Pay you $15,000 but they get $3000 back so they are really paying you $12,000. To do this, you need to be a student enrolled in an accredited co-op program. http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/credit/cetc.
Co-op programs and jobs are regulated by a board meaning there is a standard that employers and schools have to meet. For UTSC personally, the co-op department screens every job and ensures that every job is relevant. Will you find secretary only positions? Nope but you might have some administrative duties in your job mandate. There are compensation standards and so on.
All co-op schools have a job portal exclusive to co-op students. While the jobs can be found on TalentEgg and Linkedin and so on, the advantage comes in the 1st round and continuous round and Ranking System.
Finally, co-op programs allow for more opportunity. Most jobs posted in the Winter and Fall semester are only for co-op students to apply meaning instead of only getting to apply for summer internships, you can get 3 semesters a year for a chance. Some industries like accounting hire more in the Winter. For UTSC, they allow us so much flexibility in the length of our work term (4,8,12 months) as well as our sequence order. A study did show that on average co-op students get an 11% higher starting salary on full time offers because of the experience. There are not that many co-op schools in Canada compared to non co-op. The job qualities are the exact same. You can do IB or Consulting in the Fall or Winter.
EDIT: This site is a bit weird, when a new response is made I have to scroll through the thread to find it. If I miss your question, please post it on the bottom.
Thinking of taking this course for night school, so it can be my 6th U/M course for university. I can take it during the day but I want to have a spare during day school to focus on my three other courses (che, bio, english). How was your experience with Families in Canada in Night School? Also, do you recommend I take it during the day (and stick with a four-course load semester, I'm in highschool), or am I better off with it at night school? Thank you for your help.
