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 have recently applied for the medical radiation sciences at mcmasters university and was just wondering how they choose acceptance. At the time of applying my average was in the admission range and unfortunately at the end of the semester it went below. Currently I have 5 U courses with an 82% where my prerequisites are; English (90%), , Advanced Functions (80%), Chemistry (68%). I am taking calculus, physics and biology right now. I was wondering if i can still get accepted into mcmasters with my low chemistry mark.
Also, I have already gotten into Ryersons Medical Physics, is it similar to the medical radiation at mcmasters.
Hi guys, I'm an international student who just got offers from both schools (Ryerson BBA and Laurier BBA). Well, I have read some discussions about these topics already but some of them are too old and possibly not relevant to present day anymore. So I hope you guys can give me some of your opinions about these 2 progs. Thanks
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
Hi, I'm a Ryerson first year and I want to switch to Business. And yeah, I only have two months of school left but I applied to business and I just want to work until next school year. But if I just disappear now from school, I would fail. And I heard if I drop out, I have to pay back OSAP all the money, even the grant. I don't really care if I fail this course but I don't want it to look bad under my name when I get into business - hoping anyways.
Hey everyone! I've just been freaking out a bit recently about getting accepted to a university. I've applied to western, laurier, and uOttawa for buisness/management. uOttawa is my first and I'm also in a victory lap right now.
My grades are:
Communications tech 98%
Advanced functions 73%
I'm taking economics and calc and Vectors right now and econ is going great and calc is looking like 70-75
I know my advanced functions mark isnt stellar but it is what it is and I just want some thoughts on if I'll get in or not. My average is an 85. And I don't want to see comments like "uOttawa sucks western is the best school ever but you won't ever get in because your marks suck" because I see those on literally every other post on this site. Just your opinion would be appreciated and I could really use some help here. Thanks! :)
I self reported my grades, SFU came to our school and told us to self report our grade 11 marks in for Grade 12 if we didn't have our grade 12 marks yet. I applied for Computing Science and admission average is usually around 86%.
77 % Physics
That's an 86% average and I've still received no response, and it's been a couple of weeks. Is that too low?
- http://scholarshipscanada.com (lots of scholarships, but kinda hard to use)
2. Guidance counsellors. Ask them about any local scholarships available.
3. Parent’s workplace. Your parent’s company might offer a scholarship, and if they do it’s likely that they don’t get many applications. Also a good idea to ask your parents to ask their friends if their company provides a scholarship.
4. Financial Aid website for schools that you’re interested in. Should be able to find it easily with Google.
- Even if you don’t think you 100% qualify, still apply. Apparently a lot of scholarships don’t get a lot of applications so you still might have a good chance at winning!
- Make a calendar of application deadlines and plan which ones you'll apply to that way you don't miss any. I used Google calendar so I could set reminders.
Western sent out a wave of acceptances earlier this morning and I was one of the applicants to receive my BMOS offer. I don't mean to discourage or call out anyone, but if anyone did (or did not) get accepted, what was your average?
I just want to get a sense of the competition for this year's Western programs... I hope there's nothing wrong with that :-)
FYI, I got accepted into BMOS with approx. 92-93 avg
HI! I am currently in grade 12 and have applied to McMaster Life science, McMaster Health science, Mcgill life science, Western health science, and UTM life science. I have some questions about the programs.
For Health Science they require a non-technological, non-math, and non-science course for one category. I was wondering if computer science (ICS 4U) counts as a technological course or if it's in a separate category since tech courses usually start with a T like TIJ1O
If I use Comp Sci as that course I can have an average of about 91.5%
If I cannot use it as that course I would have an average of about 90.89%
Also, once you get into life science, I have heard that the amount of students who get into med school is low. I was wondering which universities and programs would help prepare me for medical school the most while allowing me to achieve a high GPA.
I originally applied to UBCO for my first choice being in the sciences and my second choice being in the arts. I’m wondering if I can change my first choice to the Vancouver Campus? And my second choice changed to the science in the Okanagan campus? I’m from Alberta and have an 84% average (with the 4% boost). I’m also an aboriginal student. My application says it’s ready to be evaluated, as well.
It's been a long time since I've been active on this forum! The last time was when I was in Grade 12 applying to uni. I found the advice and info on here really useful, so just wanted to give back with an AMA now that I'm nearing graduation.
A little background on me: I'm doing a dual degree in Commerce/CS which I've somehow managed to cram into 4 years (it was very painful, do not recommend). I'm going to be working in finance after graduation (signed back with firm I interned with in third year summer). I can answer questions about Queen's life, clubs, the dual degree, or whatever else you think might be relevant.
P.S. A little shameless promotion for my blog post on why you all should consider doing a dual degree: https://canadianuniguide.wordpress.com/2017/11/01/3-reasons-why-you-should-consider-a-dual-degree/
Has anyone been accepted yet? Seems like Ryerson has sent some early acceptances but no word from Waterloo. If you have, what were your marks/average? Also, if your waiting, what marks/average do you have?
Hey everyone. Got rejected from UofT, which was my dream school, no idea why because my grades are genuinely near perfect :(
I am most likely going to be attending UBC, although I'm still waiting to hear from mcgill. I think a big part of my wanting to go to toronto was how 'at home' i felt as an lgbt person both in the city and when i visited campus.
whats life like for lgbt people at both mcgill and ubc? From what i can gather Mcgill is more open and has more lgbt societies and is montreal more accepting/open than vancouver? Haven't heard great things about the one pride group i can find in ubc.
hey guys!! I have been accepted to both Ryerson and the George Brown collab for nursing and I am having a tough time deciding between the two. If anyone has any insight to share it would be greatly appreciated!!!
