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.
So i was accepted under the conditions that i have 1 math over a 70 and I currently take functions(76) and data(89) does this mean they will only look at my higher math mark?(considering I take 7 classes, the second math will be bumped from my top 6)
Quick question for anyone who can answer. I am going into business studies and was wondering which university would be better for accounting and/or finance. If anyone is in a program at one of these schools, I would appreciate it if you could tell me how the work load, professors and overall atmosphere is. In addition, if any of these programs offer a co-op or exchange program.
Hey everyone!! Next week I will officially be a grade 12 student. My school is semestered and I have a few urgent questions. I am enrolled for 3 courses each semester. That means that I will have 32 credits. In each semester I have a bird course such as gym or family studies. Is it possible for me to drop a bird course in each semester and have 2 spares each semester. I would still get the 30/30 credits needed. I have asked my guidance councillor and she said I can only take 1 spare. I am not sure if this is true or she doesn't want me having 2 spares.
I recently accepted my offer to WLU however I have no idea how to apply for residence. I have logged into loris with my student ID and created a new password, however, i cannot log into the residence application with the same combination. Any help would be appreciated.
Do I have to take a certain number of university courses in grade 11 to be considered for early acceptance? For example for gr12 they say 6 4u/m courses but some also say no more than 2 mixed courses. Is it the same for gr11? Does it matter how many university courses I have?
hey all! I will be applying to SFU Beedie and UBC Sauder for business, specifically accounting. The pros of Beedie are: trimester, co-op, short commute, cons: less prestige which could make it harder to find a job later on. the pros of UBC are: prestige, cons: farther commute, weak coop. I was just wondering what you would choose.
