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.
I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.
I got accepted into George brown st. James campus and humber lakeshore campus. Both for social working programs. I want to know which i should choose. I know all about the academics but who has the better parties or the nicest people and of course the cutest boys.
So my average is pretty low for the first semester and I doubt that I will be hearing from any unis any time soon. If I bring up my 2nd semester average to an 85 at midterm (overall with first sem) what're my chances of getting in? Program cutoffs low 80. I just want to know if I mess up first semester and bring up my marks 2nd semester midterms, do I still have a chance of being accepted?
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?
So I signed into my joinutoronto account and I applied to UTM and UTSG. Under the my applications section on the home page for my UTM my status it says "admitted". There is also an option to accept an offer and there is now a bunch of options under my documents for UTM about my program and next steps and stuff. But I never got an email saying I was accepted and when I click the actual check status tab it says pending review for both campus applications. There is also a new orange tab that says welcome to the university of toronto at the top of my home page and all these options were not here before so it looks like i was accepted but I'm not sure? Does this mean I was accepted to UTM??
When should I mail in my official transcripts? I'm an Alberta student, and the only thing on my to-do list is the self-reported grades form. Should I send in my transcript now, or wait until they put it on the to-do list/email?
I'm in my grade 12 year (regular stream) and I took a grade 11 IB course that I was interested in (it's split into two years i don't know how it works other places). I ended up doing really well and was wondering if I could use it for admission to schools that look primarily at grade 12 grades.Will it count for scholarships at all? I couldn't find answers anywhere else.
