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.
So I have 150 community hours, grade 8 Valedictorian, Student council 3 years, Free the Children (charity) 3 years, badminton club 2 years, and Improv club 3 years. I am also student body vice-president this year. I have been in two school musicals as well as two large ones with the community.
Applied to Queen's, UBC (Number 1 Choice), UofToronto, UofGuelph, Laurier, UofWaterloo, Ryerson, McGill, and Western on the 5th of December.
Grade 11 Average: 93%
Grade 12 Semester 1 Grades:
I applied to Philosophy/Political Science depending on the school. (All bachelor of Arts)
What're my chances? Especially to Queen's and UBC? (OR ANYWHERE ELSE).
I accidentally put that I was eligible for Quebec residency in my McGill application when I am not. I've already been accepted, but would it still affect me if I asked Admissions to correct my mistake?
I have decided that I want to study economics or computer science when I go to university (hopefully UFT/UWO). I am taking the required courses for economics for gr 11&12 but only one computer science course in each grade. When I was choosing my courses in February, I was told that physics is not necessary for computer science. Since many of my gr12 friends are receiving their admissions, they're telling me that physics is required. I'm not at all good at chemistry and physics but am extremely good at math. Also, I have looked at university admission requirements for comp sci from Ryerson, UFT, Western and they all require either chem or physics. I am unsure what to do because I am positive that I will absolutely fail in both classes
Hi everyone! I am a grade 11 student in Ontario and my career choice and dream is to become a nurse practitioner, I didn't do too well in Chem 78% and Bio 73% (11 University) and now I'm really freaking out with reading all these posts. I know I have the ability to do better than the marks I got which sounds ludicrous but I just know. I'm taking all the science courses, advanced functions, data management and calc/vectors. My aunt who is a nurse practitioner and is still continuing her studies told me to take data management but i don't know if calc/vectos will benefit me. I also had university world issues in mind as well as kinesology. Do you guys think I should take a spare? I will be taking 12U English in summer school and I haven't decided if I should take a course in night school. I know these marks look really bad for nursing but I know I could get better marks. My top choices are UofT, Western and Queens. I'm in desperate need of help with getting my courses organized, if you guys have tips or anything it would be greatly appreciated because I am freaking out right now.
When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?
Hi, I'm a student applying for CS/SE. I'm wondering what my chances are for this program.
Average: ~98.5%, expecting to go up to 99.3%
AP Calculus BC: 100%
AP Advanced Functions: 100%
AP Physics C: 100%
AP Chemistry: 96% (Hard chem teacher T___T)
AP English: 97% (fucking English T___T)
AP Programming: 100%
The issue is that I have few EC's. I'm only President of my school's Programming Club, Student Council and Math Club. I won several national engineering competitions such as NASA International Competition, Intel Engineering Competition, International Hackathon sponsored by Google to compete, and Top-100 Internationally in competitions such as FB Hacker Cup & Google Code Jam.
Here are some contest scores:
Euclid 2015: 85/100
CCC Senior 2015: 62/75
CCC Senior 2014: 50/75
CCC Junior 2013: 75/75
Any chance? Everyone from my school applying has 99+ averages... Thanks
Hey I would love some advice on choosing between schools!!
Currently I am a grade 12 student and I live in Guelph ON. I want to go into the environmental field (Environmental Sciences, Ecology ect.) I have been looking mostly at University of Guelph and University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus. I have a fear of staying in Guelph for school because I am scared I will never leave, but on the other hand BC is very far from home. I would love any advice on living far from home, living in the same city that you grew up in, the universities, the programs. Really anything??? Thanks!
Hey there, I go to a non-semestered high school and wanted to know how many grade 12 final marks I need to be eligible for acceptance (not early acceptance). I have 2 so far, so do I need a minimum of 3 or...?
So I'm taking Calculus next year and pretty much everyone's telling me it's hard! Some teachers said it too but I asked my math teacher he said it's easy! Ofc cuz they've been teaching it forever! But I asked If 90 was possible for me he said yea! I've had that teacher since gr11 and my math isn't as bad as I'm getting a 90 in advanced functions as of right now! Any opinions on this?
I just finished first semester and I got a 78% in Chemistry (University) which I'm really upset about. I know for sure I will have Chemistry first semester in grade 12, I am planning on applying to Life Sci for nursing at UofT, Western, Queen's and McMaster. I'm really nervous and scared right now, would the Universities base their decision on my grade 11 mark with my grade 12 midterm???? There is no improvement course in night school or summer school.
I'm in grade 11 at an Ontario high school, I want to apply for the nursing program at UofT and I know I have to apple for Life Sciences first for 2 years. I also want to apply to Western Queen's and McMaster. I have to submit my courses soon and I have these courses in mind so far, I don't want to fill up my timetable with hard courses that I won't need in the end and I am very, very, very confused right now. I know for sure I will have Biology, Chemistry and Advanced Functions first semester. I am also taking 12U English in summer school and I am thinking of taking night school but I don't know for what course yet. If you guys have ny suggestions/tips that would be great because I am very lost. :)
