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 can't decide between the two. uOttawa is very far as I am from the GTA, but it is accredited and has mandatory co-op. UofT is much more prestigious (top 20 in the world) and it would be easier finding a job in the US, but software engineering isn't accredited and I cannot obtain my PENG.
Basically what I said above. I just finished my third year at Western Med Sci! I know choosing a university is tough (I had a really tough time choosing) and trying to determine how you'll do at university is stressful, but let me know what questions you have and I'll do my best to answer them!
Also, despite being in third year, I can definitely answer questions about first year and all other years. I've been pretty engaged with helping out first years, so I know a decent amount about all years (or at least I like to think I do haha).
Update: I just got into med school, so feel free to ask those questions as well.
I'm a second year UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in first year residence, upper year winter residence and year round housing, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC. I'm in the coop program at UBC and currently on a work term with a software company.
I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring.
Torn between the two. U of T would be humanities and I would be trying to specialize in international relations. GH would be business admin and I would be majoring in international relations. Advice? Pros and Cons of both ?
I'm a current student at Ryerson entering my 4th year in September, majoring in Professional Communication. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty. I've also recently been hired as a Project and Communications Assistant for the Government of Ontario.
I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities + job search + how I got hired in the government
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! Ask me anything!
If you're looking to contact me personally, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions on the University of Waterloo's Conditional Admission to Pharmacy (CAP) program this year and are interested in applying, dont hesitate to ask them here! I'll try to answer them as best as I can!
For those of you who dont know what CAP is, it's basically a program designed for students who wish to pursue a field in pharmacy in the future. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE HERE: https://uwaterloo.ca/pharmacy/future-students/conditional-admission-pharmacy-cap ALSO be sure to check out the FAQ section too because they usually cover a lot of your questions there.
NOTE: Applications will be available starting October 9, 2015
Hey guys, I'm really interested in attending a business program in university and these are my grade 12 courses. I will be taking Gr 12 English in summer school. However, because of a medical condition I've only just recovered from I was not able to take Gr 9 phys ed (a phys ed credit is mandatory), therefore one of my classes is Gr 12 English.
Furthermore, I'm enrolled in a Regional Arts Program which means I have one course in my major (theatre) each semester.
I am taking all 3 math courses (adv. functions calculus and vectors and data management) and was wondering if I should drop data or change any other courses. If you guys have any advice on how to maneuver my courses so that I don't die from workload in accordance with my Regional Program and situation, I'd like to know! Thanks!
Sorry if this seems like a stupid question but I don't want to provide incorrect info,
For the question if parental home within 30km, on google maps it says driving from house to university is 30.7 km, so I put no it is not within 30km,
but since it is relatively close to 30km and not sure how else could i get the distance other than google maps , did anyone use a different method to calculate distance or should I leave it at no it is not within 30km?
Are you currently in high school? Do you have a part time job? If you answered yes on both questions. Please help me out by taking part in this survey.
This is an anonymous survey for my data management class. I just want to see if there is a relationship between the number of hours you work in a week and your school average. It will be very short and will take no more than 3 minutes of your time.
I'm basically always on here so figured might as well make one of these and help out any prospective students.
Background: - First 2 years spent as BBA Co-op student, secured first coop term through BBA - Transferred into BAcc Co-op after 2 years - Currently doing a spring semester
You kinda get the best of both worlds since I have been in all (both) the programs offered at the Goodman School of Business!
And since I know these are gonna be popular Qs:
WHEN SEARCHING FOR 1ST CO-OP: - Avg (both major and overall) ~80% - ECs: Leadership position in a club, some entrepreneurial stuff, sports stuff - Work XP: General accounting internship at no-name organization doing very basic stuff, manual labour
Since attending Brock, I have received interview requests from:
Company / Quantity / (Co-op vs summer intern, Location)
RBC x 3 (Various positions, co-op x2 and summer intern x1, Toronto)
Big 4 Audit x3 (1x Co-op and 1x Summer intern, Toronto...1 x Co-op in Calgary)
AT TIME OF APPLYING TO UNIVERSITY (September 2012 Entry): - Rejected from BAcc Co-op - Accepted to BBA Co-op with 83.5% top 6
WHEN LANDING BIG 4 AUDIT CO-OP:
- Joined B4 Audit in January 2016
- Done 8 months of co-op, not at an accounting firm
- Major average ~85, overall ~80+
- ECs, unchanged from when applying to first co-op
- Completed a couple certificates in excel
ADVICE FOR CURRENT STUDENTS WHO WANT TO GET INTO B4 BUT DIDN'T/WON'T FOR THEIR FIRST COOP:
- Get public accounting experience somewhere else. This is basically a must. I believe I was the only upper year hired from my school into B4 this past term without prior public experience. It's something I noticed during recruiting
- If you have the above, grades matter a bit less. Yes you still want to do as best as you can, but a high 70 is OK enough if you have prior XP. An 80+ is still ideal though
- Be prepared to explain why you left your previous employer (and don't speak poorly about them)
That's basically it. So feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to answer your Qs as best as I can!
*Even if nobody has posted in this topic for a while, feel free to do so, chances are I'm still lurking on here
*This forum is now open to everyone who got an acceptance from McGill, regardless of their field of choice. All students admitted to arts, literature, kinesiology, etc... are also welcome to post their acceptance. Good luck to those waiting for an acceptance! Post away!
Hello everybody from McGill!
I've seen a lot of forums related to acceptances from the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. So this forum is to give students that got an offer from McGill University for engineering and computer science to post their offer. This to get an understanding of the students that are applying to McGill for the class of 2020 for an engineering, computer science or any science discipline.
Please include in your post:
1. Grade 12 first semester average
2. Field of engineering that you've been accepted to
3. Other universities that you have applied to, and whether you got an offer from them.
4. Province of residence 5. Any scholarships offered 6. Month of acceptance
This will give us all a general idea of the competition base for the applicants of 2016. Please feel free to add anything else you would like to (in addition to the specified things above).
Also, as the title gives away, if anyone has any questions regarding McGill Engineering or Computer Science, this is a good place to get them answered.
Also, all non-engineering and non computer science applicants who are applying to a science major in McGill are welcome to post their offers or ask any questions regarding their program of interest!
Post away everyone! And good luck to those who are still waiting for an offer from McGill ;-)
I've applied to Architectural Science at Ryerson and sadly I didn't get an acceptance but they gave me a place on the waiting list! I'm glad it isn't a rejection but I was wondering how many people have gotten waitlisted too?
Students that have been waitlisted before - did you end up getting an acceptance later?
Hey guys! I spent a lot of time last year browsing this forum and I thought I would share my experience at McGill thus far. I'm living in New Residence Hall and I'm a U0 in the Desautels Faculty of Management!! Ask me anything you want regarding the program, the university, student life, life in residence, frosh, etc. :)
For many of the computer science programs I have applied to it says on E-info that coop/internship is available after registration but on ouac my program says"no coop?" How does this work?
I'm interested in computing/computer electronics (BSc) at Laurier but really want to be sure of coop, I've called the university as well and it is still a bit cloudy to me.
