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.
For those of you who applied to UBC this year, i'm just wondering, if your application page on SSC has this showing for your status :
Your file is ready for an evaluation! We ask for your patience as this may take some time. We will be in touch with you by email should we require additional information. Please continue to check the status of your application on the Student Service Centre.
I apologize if this offends anyone but seriously, what the hell is going on here with every other kid posting their marks and ECs asking for bunch of immature high schoolers' opinions on whether or not they'll get accepted into their program of choice.
Now I understand inquiries regarding previous years and overall toughness of a course, but what good is asking a bunch of jerk offs online who have no say whatsoever in admission processes at any institute.
Instead of posting your marks which a sad face and craving attention and acceptance, why don't you actually consider going to the university's website and read their admission policy which has the required average range posted 99% of the time. If you're feeling very lonely then I'd suggest a psychiatrist.
People be asking as if yconic users run UofT's admission department lol.
I want to transfer to UBC sauder from sfu arts and would really like some helpful tips!!! This thread is also for other people wanting to transfer. I'm want to get in for second year!! Thanks in advance!
I'm from Asia. I'm applying for undergraduate course but don't want to show my bad grades. My exam was ruined due to some personal factors and family matters.I know I can do better and reach to my potential. So, I'm going to retake my exam and make universities think that I'm giving exam for the first time in the next session. Will the universities know that I'm lying?
So I am thinking of going to Berkeley for my post secondary education, wanting to major in Health Sciences. I have a 91% average in Grade 12 so far. I want to go to Berkeley as I want to experience university in California, as I want to settle there in the future. Do you think I will get accepted? Thoughts?
By the way, I actually got immigration there just last year, so the tuition for me would be the same as somebody living in the state of California.
I want to become a cardiovascular surgeon. I am currently in grade 12. I just am confused of the process and the direction I have to go. I was wondering if I could get some advice on the road to becoming a surgeon and which university or medical school I should go to. I messed up on my last semester of grade 11 because I had to transfer since my school shut down. I did homeschooling and it was really complicated since I started late. I had a deadline in which made me have to rush through my work. I was hoping on some real honest feed back about what my options are. (by the way I have enough credits to graduate)
I am going into grade 12 and will be picking my university program soon. I am not sure what I would like to go into yet. This post is for current university students, would you do anything differently in terms of choosing a program/university if you could go back in time? Is there any piece of advice that you wish somebody told you before you entered university? Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!
As a grade 12 student, I'll be applying to a bunch of universities this year. I'm just wondering, which major Canadian universities give out most scholarships and are pretty easy about it? For example, I have a friend who applied to both UBC and U of A for engineering and she got a $10,000 scholarship at UBC but U of A offered her $40,000. If you're wondering about my marks, I have a 94-95% average and I'll be applying into Sciences. Thanks!
