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've gotten early acceptance into Brock and Laurier, and they've both given me an entrance scholarship based on my grade 11 marks. Last year my average was about an 84%, but this year, my first semester marks have been around an 87%. (For entrance scholarships, the amount given for 80-84.9% and 85-89.9% are different!!) If my total grade 12 mark is about an 87%, will they raise my entrance scholarship amount???
Hello! I'm a student in my last year of high school who has just finished applying to a variety of science-based programs at Waterloo, Guelph, Laurier and Guelph-Humber. After reading some information on Laurier's website regarding acceptance, I'm worried that my applications may be disregarded due to my current lack of science courses. The trouble is that I'm going to be attending a different school next semester in order to fulfill the program requirements, as the school I'm currently going to doesn't offer the necessary courses, and so these courses haven't yet appeared on my transcript. I read that the universities typically send a letter of acceptance or rejection two or three weeks after the application is received, so I'm worried that they might reject me before I can even begin taking the courses. What should I do? Am I worried about nothing? Thanks in advance for the advice!
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
Did anyone hear of any dates from schools to apply to be considered for an early acceptance. I had a 96% grade 11, just wondering when I should apply. I heard the date of December 1st thrown around quite a bit. Ideally, Laurier if anyone knows. Thanks
hi, im currently a grade 12 student getting mid 80's and 90's so far except for math which is below 50 :(. I know there are better business schools and programs then these but im not ready to go to a business school that is hard and where i will be emotionally drained and stressed out. I want go to a business school where i can manage my grades. I am going through enough stress in grade 12 already and i dont want to go through it again. I know ryerson has no co-op but what about york's commerce ..does it have it if your not going to schullich and how is brock. I am just confused about if i should i go to a university that has no co-op or not
