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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.

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!
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! Just wanted to make a thread to see who has been admitted to a kinesiology program for fall 2016! If you've been admitted, could you please comment which university, when you applied, and your average! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
Hey there, I go to a non-semestered high school and wanted to know how many grade 12 final marks I need to be eligible for acceptance (not early acceptance). I have 2 so far, so do I need a minimum of 3 or...?

When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?
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 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
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.
My name is Josh, some of you might know me as the guy who started MedHopeful. For those of you who don't know me, I am currently a 3rd year Medical Student at UofT and I have run a blog called MedHopeful for almost 4 years now which provides stories and advice relating to undergrad, scholarships and medical school.
I originally wanted to remain anonymous in this thread because I was working on a few new projects (like a new group blog I had started) with some medical school classmates who wanted to remain anonymous. However, after long discussions and thinking, I decided to go back to primarily posting on MedHopeful. I also figured that I was OK not being anonymous (my friends still want to be, which is fine and I understand why).
In any case, I am happy to answer any questions, and for those of you who didn't know, I started a similar thread like this last year on the old Student Awards forums, which you might also find useful:
I am a 3rd year medical student at a Canadian medical school. My first 2 years were spent mostly in the classroom learning anatomy, physiology, disease, treatments, etc.
I started 3rd year in September 2011, and since then, I have been in "clerkship" - which means I have been working and learning full time in the hospital - seeing real patients everyday, and learning to diagnose/treat their illnesses. I have to say, it's very different from what I imagined. No matter how much you try to learn what it's like to practice medicine (e.g. shadowing), you really don't know what it's like until you do it.
I found these forums very helpful while studying in undergrad and applying to medical school. I'd like to give back by answering questions about medical school if anyone has any.
I'll try to be as honest as possible. I just won't be revealing any personal details as I'd prefer to remain anonymous.
Ask away! :)
P.S. I now blog everyday about med school life, getting in to med school, undergrad tips, etc. (see signature)
I have decided that I want to study economics or computer science when I go to university (hopefully UFT/UWO). I am taking the required courses for economics for gr 11&12 but only one computer science course in each grade. When I was choosing my courses in February, I was told that physics is not necessary for computer science. Since many of my gr12 friends are receiving their admissions, they're telling me that physics is required. I'm not at all good at chemistry and physics but am extremely good at math. Also, I have looked at university admission requirements for comp sci from Ryerson, UFT, Western and they all require either chem or physics. I am unsure what to do because I am positive that I will absolutely fail in both classes
Hi! I just wanted a little insight to my refusal of admission to Rotman Commerce. They had alternatively offered me into studies of Social Science with a Trinity College offer. However, i'm quite puzzled as to why I was refused.
Pre- Calculus 12: 98
Law 12: 96
English Literature: 95
I know that my Calculus is lower than the rest but they just stated that it was a pre-requisite course. I understood that my admission average would be calculated by English, Pre-Calc 12 and my 2 other academic courses coming out to an average of 95.75%. I was offered alternate admission before they even confirmed they received my Rotman supplemental... I'm from BC by the way.
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.
