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.
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?
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 owe a lot to yconic in helping me choose a university so I thought I could help a few high schoolers out. If anyone has any questions about McGill, Desautels, or any of the other big business schools in Ontario, I'd love to answer them!
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 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???????????
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.
Whats the diffrence between honors, combined honors and major? Can you later get a graduate degree with taking major sciences? If i apply to honors does it cost more and if I dont get in am i automatically considered for major?
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 guys! I'm in grade 11 in an Ontario high school and I've been looking into careers. My top choice is to become a nurse practitioner and to maybe specialize, my aunt is a nurse practitioner and I love what she does. I just received my marks for my first semester classes which was Religion (mandatory), Dance with the special needs students, Functions (university) and Chemistry (university). I am taking math improvement for functions in night school with some other kids from my class got a 75% and in chemistry I got a 78% which I'm really upset about. I know I have the ability to reach higher marks than this , I took Biology grade 11 (university) in grade 10 and during that semester I had serious health issues and a family friend passed away from cancer, so my mark just went downhill from there to a 73% and Evolution had a big impact on my mark. My second semester is grade 11 physics (university), English (university), fitness and Geography (Mixed). I know these marks don't look great for nursing and now I'm really worried that the universities will look at my grade 11 marks. My courses for grade 12 are Religion (University), Chemistry (University), Biology (University), Advanced Functions (university), Data Management (University), Geography world issues (University) and I really want a spare and I don't know if is should take Kinesology or if advanced functions helps or if i should take calc/vectors. I understood everything in grade 11 chemistry from stoichiometrey, mole, naming and types of reactions. I will be taking summer school for English (university) and a course in night school that I haven't figured out yet. My guidance counselor said she will give me 12U bio and 12U chem first semester I'm really really really worried and I know that I could definetley have my marks in the high 80s and i know that sounds rally far fetched. My top universities are Western, UofT and Queens. HEEELLLLPPPP PLEASE I'M REALLY WORRIED IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY TIPS THAT COULD HELP THEY ARE MORE THAN NEEDED. Sorry for the length I'm just freaking out.
I applied to Western for Health Science, but I know very little about the program. Could someone completing their undergrad in health sic please tell me about the program, life at western, including the people, the campus, and the social life. Thanks!
i wanna go to med school but i slacked off in the first semester of grade 11 and now im really scared if i will get 90s in garde 12 because i had high 80s in greade 9 and 10. also any tips for getting higher marks would be appreciated.
I applied at Western for Health Sciences, Waterloo for Kinesiology, and Ottawa for Health Sciences. In grade 11 my average was 83% and in my first semester of grade 12 my average was 76%. What is the likelihood of me getting into these schools?
I am currently taking grade 12 physics but I am debating dropping it. I am going into health sciences/ health studies and it is not recommended for any of the programs; however, is physics required for any graduate programs if I chose to pursue graduate studies? Any opinions would be appreciated!
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 have a current 92 average and it will probably go up as math is my strong suit (functions, which I'm taking now). I have 2 jobs, am the captain of my cross country team, am on the nordic ski and track and field teams, am a student ambassador, and will have studied abroad twice. What are my chances of getting in?
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!
