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.

I plan on going into health science/life science for university then go into pharmacy.
I'd like to be less stressed next year when applying for university because I know Biology is known to be quite difficult.
How difficult is the content in comparison to at school? Should I take chemistry 12 instead? Should I even take biology?
I'm still in the process of taking bio 11 right now; I don't have any marks for reference but grade 10 science I had an average of 92 and a 91 in chem. Should I expect similar marks in biology 12 in summer school as how I do in grade 11?
I won't be doing any extracurriculars/taking a trip anywhere over the course of the month.
Also, what sort of marks should I be looking at to get into a program that offers high GPAs when applying for school of pharmacy?
I've applied for Utsc Health studies, Uft psychology, McMaster Health sci, Western Health Sci, Ryerson Business management and York Biomed sci. My marks are the following, please tell me of my chances? My gr 11 average ranges from 80-86% based on the marks they use. My gr 12 marks are the following:
so i'm a grade 12 and i applied to mac, western, guelph (accepted) and Queen's. however, I am leaning more towards Queen's or Western.
I am going to major in poli sci. I'm HIGHLY interested in student government and i want to attend a university that puts a lot of emphasis on it as it is very important to me. i want to be able to get involved right from the get go. i also am scared of the whole right-wing "if you don't agree with my ideology then you get a bad mark" arts based profs that apparently queen's and mac has a lot of. should i be considering this?
ALSO, i think i want to attend law school, so maintaining a high GPA is obviously important to me. I don't know if this is just a myth or if I just have to work super hard regardless of where I go, but I've heard that some schools just generally have profs who mark harder (I want to avoid this).
Lastly, finances and distance are not a huge concern for me. None of the schools I applied to have a dramatic differences in price anyways.
SO, knowing all of that, what school do you guys think i should go to?
I'm in 11th grade and I'm thinking about my future. I genuinely feel that I have nothing going for me at the moment. My grades are atrocious and I feel like I might even fail a couple classes. I hope to pursue a career computer related, as computers are the only thing that I have known my whole life, but I am certain that my current grades will hold me back from reaching that field. I feel like grade 12 won't get too much better, unless I manage to find some massive motivation out of my ass that will drive me into improving my grades drastically. Without good grade 12 marks, I know university won't be an option, so I am really considering college where I can study, and then hopefully make the transition into Uni that way, but my parents got extremely mad and started lecturing me for even bringing it up. I'm confident that a decent university for computer science will not consider me with the grades I have, and college seems like the only option, but my parent's are too traditional to let me go that route. It's as if they don't understand that my bad grades are already jeopardizing my chances of going to Uni, so what am I supposed to do? Atleast I'm willing to give college a try, but they just refuse to let me. What do I do in this situation.
For the activities section, it says approximately 300 words. Is it bad to skip one of the categories, such as athletics? I was in the track and field team once but I don't have much to say about it. If I did write about it, I would be way under 300 words. Should I just write it?
I MIGHT get a full ride to Rotman, I'm guaranteed at least 10k (through the National Scholarship Program).
I am applying to Western's National Scholarship Program as well, but I'm guaranteed at least 10k because my admission average will be 95+ (I say this confidently because I am holding a 99 right now).
I was accepted to Queen's but did not receive the Chancellor's.
I really don't know what I want to do. Startups attract me, as does nonprofit economic development, impact invest, and social entrepreneurship. I'm not familiar with accounting vs finance vs consulting, but accounting sounds vaguely boring.
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were.
since I don't have grade 12th mathematics I don't have a lot of university options. please can anyone suggest some easy to get into universities that do not require math in health science related degree program anywhere in Canada?
I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay. Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.
You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.
I created this thread so people can post their information on their acceptance, so that others can see if their program have started sending acceptance letters. Anyone who has recieved an offer from the start of February to the end of June post the following:
I didn't realize I don't have group 1 credit until gr12 so I have to take world issue but I really don't like the course and it's boring :( I might end up with a 50% so I'm wondering if the university will care if they see a 50 on my report card
My joinid says that I've been admitted into the program and that they've sent a package containing the details. However, I haven't received an email confirmation. Has anyone who has been admitted gotten one?
