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'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 was recently admitted into the life sciences program at UofT St.George! In the acceptance package, it says that I was admitted to Woodsworth College but when I log into MyRes, it says that I shouldn't select Woodsworth as my top choice because I didn't indicate it as my top choice on OUAC.
Does anyone know if I'm supposed to be choosing a different residence or if I'm okay with keeping it as Woodsworth?
I applied for Crim at U of T. My final grade 12 first sem grades were:
Business Leadership: 95
Peer Tutoring: 96
Challenge and Change: 96
My average between those four courses is a 94.75. I'm worried that I won't be accepted, even though my grades are fairly high. Can someone who's been accepted tell me their program, college ranking (if applicable), and final average. I applied to UC as my first choice, as well.
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.
I'm in a linear school system and I self reported my term 1 mark to SFU, but it's been two weeks and I haven't receive any offer. Now I am starting to worry about my marks, because I think my average is around the borderline.
PreCalculus 93 ( probably aced my midterm so my mark will go up)
I applied for UBC science and arts, as well as SFU computing science and siat. Term 2 is over yet so my average might go up a bit because of my math midterm. My average right now is between 88 to 90. I think I don't have any chance for ubc science now, but what about SFU computer science or UBC arts? The average admission for SFU is not precise on their website so I wasn't sure.

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.
I know most people in BC's first choice is UBC, but has anyone heard back from SFU after they self reported their marks? I haven't heard back yet and I reported on January 4th, the first day it was open.
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.
Hey guys, I recently received an offer from the University of Calgary and I am wondering if there is a deadline to accept or reject the offer. I received the offer on January 22nd and am waiting for other universities responses to my application.
I'm really excited to have been accepted to the PAPM program and im 99% sure that I'll be going but I still have a few more questions that I would love if some current students/grads could help me with.
When I look through lists of courses I would be taking throughout the 4 years, it seems like there isn't much room for electives? Am I looking at this wrong or is it true that you'd have only 4 elective credits total? I was hoping to do a minor or at least take some courses in a different subject area and now I'm unsure if that will be possible.
I also just wanted to know more generally about how co-op and the different specializations work.
Most importantly are you enjoying/did you enjoy the program? How useful has it been for you/do you think it will be for you after graduation?
