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'm going into Grade 12 and what would be some tips into increasing my chances for Ivey.
Unfortunately, I go to a small high school where there is basically no business club and no DECA. I have a part-time job, I play a couple instruments and I have volunteering experience (over 200 hours). I just lack business and leadership ECs, and I feel like I am at a disadvantage. What could I do to make up for those ECs?
My Grade 11 average was a 90 and I took Advanced Functions this summer and I finished with a 91. I should project an average for Grade 12 around 91-93%. I have good writing capabilities so the essays should not be an issue.
This might sound crazy, but I want Ivey as a backup if things don't work out in order to heading to medical school. If I don't get a 4.0 in my first year, I can just get an Ivey HBA instead.
I'm finally done a really rough year. I'm finished with a 76% average, and I know this won't get me anywhere.
My Grade 12 courses are as follows:
Religion (Catholic School)
I have a spare in both semesters so I can ensure I get the highest possible marks. I want to get into a business program but I'm not sure if it's possible to get an average in the high 80s after a terrible Grade 11 year.
