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!

Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's.
Since the OUAC targeted date for which all must have received an offer from an Ontario university have passed, and since today is the last day to accept an offer, which university are you guys going to in September?
I, personally, am going to McMaster for Life Sciences.
I will have a 92.5 average with an 84 in English and 85 in Advanced Functions but a mark in the 90s for Calculus. I am the Finance Coordinator of Green Initiative Canada, Treasurer of Environmental Council, Delegate to Model United Nations, Peer Tutor, President of the Me to We Club, and have been a member of the Kumon Program for 11 years. Awards include A national award (ranked 1 out of 332 students throughout Canada for an Advanced Achievement in Kumon Mathematics), Outstanding Contribution to the Enviro Council, and French Honour Roll and Regular Honour Roll, and Completed the Kumon Math and Reading Award (first person at my centre to do so!) How do my chances look? Please be honest, Waterloo is my first choice, btw I have not done the AFMAA yet I did not apply for early acceptance!! And no subjects were done outside of day school! And please reply without being rude lol don't think it's that hard! EDIT: I WROTE THAT I RECEIVED A 64 IN ENGLISH PREVIOUSLY, WHEN I REALLY GOT AN 84 MY BAD!!!
So I received an 84 in English and an 85 in advanced functions but my top 6 is about a 93, so does this hinder my chances because of my English and advanced mark. My calc mark will be somewhere in the 90s. Please help!!!! DO they look at individual marks?
I'm freaking out, so I'm at an 84 and my goal is a 90 and we only have 2 months left. We are going to have our Unit 5 Quiz on Wednesday and we have 5,6,7,8 left but unit 8 we may not have any assessments for it. I'm so close to a 90, and I really want it. Is it possible to get my mark up 5.5% since to get a 90 i only need an 89.5, would you say it's possible with hard work and determination before finals.
So I have good extracurriculars that show leadership both in school and within my local community, however one thing I am lacking is awards. I have gotten awards in Kumon for completing the program, as well as an award from my council for being the most contributing member, but i know these are very poor. Does this put me at a disadvantage because most of my extracurriculars don't provide awards. Thanks
Do you think it's possible for this to happen by finals so in about three months? I plan to working EXTREMELY hard and I've gotten a tutor for AF so that I'm able to get 7% up especially with the exam. People have said midterms are only 30-35% of the course because of exams and stuff so I was wondering if it was possible?
Hey, so currently I'm at an 85% in English and my goal is an 86 which i think is possible since I still have 3 months left of first semester, anyways, I was wondering if that would be enough for certain schools like Rotman, Schulich, Queen's Commerce, or Waterloo AFM?
