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 know this isn't exactly an academic topic but amidst all my posts about school and how much i'll be focusing on getting those 90's in a month, I also want to start browsing for prom dresses (around the Toronto, Vaughn, Maple and surrounding areas please)! any help from those who already bought a prom dress would be amazing :) also, hoping to keep the price under $250 thank you!!!
How would you get into it? Can you make a career out of it? Is it financially stable? As a high school student whose experience is really just basic labs in class, I'm not sure if I would enjoy/succeed in research? I think I'm probably going into science for uni, and from what I've read on yconic, most plan to go to med/grad/ whatever school afterwards. Otherwise, a bach in science is useless(?) Thank you!
Hello prospective nursing students, current and past nursing students, anonymous people and other awesome yconic members,
I am a recent graduate of a nursing program in Canada who potentially passed the licensing exam - nclex. In my free time I like writing, conversing with people, and sharing opinions/etc.
So I decided to return to the blog I started a while back. I know I want to focus on nursing/health but I'm not sure if I should be more specific - nursing education, field of nursing, health in canada, nursing tips, politics, etc.
If anyone has any opinions, feel free to comment here or message me on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NSVoice/
so i was checking OSAP the other day it only showed Ontario grant for low income family and no Loan or tution Fee amount, why can this happen
Also i made some mistakes on my parents income some lines were not filled in correctly is it cause of that and how can i correct it? can it be done by just visiting the financial aid office at my college
So I'm an introvert and not many people I know are going to the university I'm going to, I tried making friends online on my schools Facebook group and then I found out that my school which is York University does frosh in a way where everyone is kind of separated so your frosh depends on the college you're affiliated with. All the friends I've made are associated with different colleges so I won't see them at frosh since they're not in my college. So basically I'm asking how to make friends in frosh when you don't know anybody and you're introverted and pretty shy. I didn't want to go to frosh but a friend of mine said she made her best friends at her frosh, and since she's a commuter she doesn't live on res (same thing as me) so I'm mostly going to frosh to meet new people but I don't wanna waste 110 or more dollars on frosh if I don't end up liking it anyways please help with some tips and what are some examples of activities that would be at frosh? (Also I tagged other schools so that i can get a feel of what frosh really is)
My UofT conditions said that I need to maintain my academic standing. Well, I got 90 in cal, 80 in chem, 83 in eng and 90 in biology for the first term. Then my grades dropped, 79 in cal, 80 in chem, 88 in bio and final mark 76 in eng. The point is that I got 55 on my english provincial. What should I do right now??!! I can't take summer school because it's almost over. ????
would taking grade 12 philosophy help if i needed to take philosophy of medicine and ethics at guelph in third or fourth year? i'd have 8 12U courses without it already so i'm not sure if it's worth the added stress considering my math and science heavy courseload
How hard would it be to transfer to a university after 1 year of college? I don't have enough U or M credits to apply to university, so my guidance counselor suggested I apply to a program at college.I feel as though a college degree will not help me succeed in life, and I only applied because I might not be able to complete a victory lap. I don't know how it works at other schools, but at my school you have to apply to complete another year and I was told I may not be accepted. I'm looking to apply to a computer science university program after my first year at college. Can anyone tell me where I'll likely be accepted? Anymore information on transferring to computer science programs would be great! Thank you :)
Hello friends! So as you can tell from the title of the discussion I do want to become a nurse. My mind is pretty much set about becoming one and I have a TRUE PASSION for it. I have done a lot of research and I have a couple of question in my mind so if anyone can help me out then that would be awesome!
1. Does it really matter which university you go to to get a degree in nursing. Also, which universities would you suggest me to apply to cause I have researched every university in Ontario that offers a nursing program but am so confused as to which one I should choose to apply to (not so much worried about the money spent) and since I have to apply in the coming grade 12 year I really need to make up my mind.
2. My current grade 11 average (will be in grade 12 this September) is a 92. How hard do you think it will be for me to get into a nursing program considering this average or even since universities will consider grade 12 average, i expect my grade 12 average to be around 90-93 so how hard would it be according to this average.
3. I'm thinking about specializing in a nursing degree once I complete nursing school and gain experience for a year or 2 so which degree would you suggest me to do? I am thinking more towards being certified registered nurse anesthetist which seems to be more common in the US than in Canada or a nurse practitioner (could be pediatric or neonatal since I absolutely LOVE kids)
4. I also heard that you can try out for med school if you consider a nursing program as a pre-med option. Would you recommend this? Though I am hell bent on being some kind of a nurse, I just want to know if I can also become a pediatrician or something in the future if I change my mind through med school once I complete nursing school.
5. Since I love kids A LOT, would you recommend any other careers in the medicine field beside nurses and pediatricians?
I consider nurses to be just as important as any other doctors and I know some of you may feel that I'm choosing this field because of the money but trust me, more than the money, I'm choosing this field because helping is my passion and especially when it comes to kids so I hope that no negative comments are being said on this discussion.
BTW if any nurses and/or future nurses would like to share their experiences then please feel free to do so. As well as if anyone like me wants to become a nurse then do not hesitate to post anything here.
I made a correction on one of the documents but realized i forgot to get my parents initials on the changes and submitted the application. Now i am aware that i should notify the financial aid office with a formal letter. Do you think i can fax it to the school or i'd have to drop it off in person?
Hi guys! Just wanted to ask some suggestions from upper year nursing students about which stethoscope should I get for my first year. I heard the Littmann Classic II S.E. and Classic III are really great ones which of the two do you suggest that is sufficient enough in terms of quality, cost, etc. for a nursing student?
Hey everyone :))) I'm looking at political science/economics and after that hopefully a masters degree at a school overseas, most of my family lives in Paris so maybe Sciences Po or LSE. Right now, I'm entering my grade 12 year with a 92 top 6 average and average EC's. McGill & UBC are amazing schools but I really looking towards university of Ottawa as I love the city and am planning on studying in French as I am bilingual. HOWEVER, I know McGill and UBC have a much better international reputation and rankings, and if grad schools overseas look at prestigiousity of the school I may be better off attending McGill? Also from what I've heard, it's easier to get a higher gpa at Ottawa, if someone. could help me out that would be amazing especially as this may be the swing vote in my future plans!
So the estimate of my osapis around $8000 dollars for two semesters. I'm attending a public college in September. The tuition is about $4000... I have zero assets and have been out of high school for four years. My parents are no longer supporting me. I thought I could receive maximum amount of OSAP, which is around $12000... So is there a chance I can appeal my osap to maximum when the exact amount comes out? Do they only give maximum to university students whose tuition are twice as higher as me?
