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.
Is it a disadvantage if I pursue my undergraduate degree in Canada and then apply to an American law school? Would it benefit me to be an American undergrad applying to an American law school (T-14)?
So I know most people are going to ask why I want to practise law in the States. There are several reasons. The most important reason is that I am more interested in practising American law. My family is also moving there once I finish high school. With regards to finances, even if I dont work (which I plan on doing), I believe I will have enough funds.
I am planning to study Math and Economics for my undergrad at either UofT, UBC, or McGill. From what I have heard, American law schools look at your school's reputation AND your GPA. Hence, I ruled out lesser known Canadian universities. My conflict is that UofT seems to have the best reputation, but deflates GPAs. UBC grades slightly easier, but their reputation seems less established. And McGill doesn't seem to have a great Math and Economics program. Between UofT, UBC and McGill, how does their reputation and grading compare? Which is the best option for me if I want to apply to an American law school?
I have a 98 in Advanced Functions (grade 12). What should I expect my GPA to be at UofT if I want to major in Mathematical Applications in Economics/Statistics? (I want to apply for an American law school)
Hey, I have a dog that I will have to take care of through University. I am considering staying in residence for first year if I can bring my dog. Does anyone know if dogs are allowed at the various St. George residences?
Im a Canadian student planning to do my bachelors degree in Canada and then do my Master in the US. Which Canadian university should I select for my goal if I'm doing life sciences? (western, Toronto. McGill, McMaster; I know some universities can get you a higher GPA, whereas others have better reputations.) What should I be looking for?
