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!

My name is Akb, I am masters applicant to carleton University for fall 2018. I have a problem with my application. After paying the non-refundable application fee, I have was told I'd get a mail with 1-3 business days on how to continue my application on carleton central. It's been 4 days already and I am get to get any mail. Please guys I need advice on what I should do now. 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
I was wondering what is the realistic average FOR A FOR SURE acceptance into Civil Engineering at Carleton, also into their Comp Science or software engineering. I know at their website it says that the ranges of average admission is 75%-85%-above. I know that this averages is varies on some factors such as the amount of students apply and the competition. My question is what is the realistic average to get into their Civil and last years cut off?
I hope someone will be able to give a me precise answers, thank you!
I found that these threads really helped me when choosing the schools I would apply to and eventually attend, as I was getting the point of view of a current student. A little about me, I am in the Honours Math program studying Stats with a concentration in Actuarial Science, I also live in Residence.
Hey, so far this semester I have the most critical subjects that are necessary for the university I'm planning to go to (applying to UofT, Waterloo, Carleton, and uOttawa) as I'm a grade 12 student currently. I just need a few tips for the current year I'm in as my target for the marks I want is 95% + in each course, as well as, I'm looking forward to increasing my extracurricular involvement around the school/community and get a part-time job.
The courses I have this semester are: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (taking a spare too)
Next semester are: Biology, Calculus and Vectors, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science
Can someone give me a realistic average for Civil Engineering and Software Engineering at Carleton? Their website says 75% - 85% above, and this averages may varies on the competitions and how many students apply. What was last year cut off average for Civil and Software, that is a for sure acceptance?
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student and I'm trying to decide on a good university program and school for getting into med school. I heard that universities like U of T and McGill make it difficult to get a high GPA as it is really competitive. I am interested in McGill, McMaster, U Of Waterloo & U of Ottawa. Where do you think is the best university for keeping up a high GPA and getting into med school? And are there any programs similar to McMaster's health science?
I'm in grade 12 and will soon be applying for programs. I knows what program I want to go in but I'm having difficulty choosing schools. Though I know I want to go to McMaster Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Helath Sciences program, but I need 2 more choices. Any suggestions?
My question also extends to policy management, global and international studies and public affairs. I generally like these areas of study and would prefer to study in at least one of them. However, I have heard that when it comes to securing jobs, there's a vague idea of success. If I studied in one of these fields, have a specialization and do co-op, am I guaranteed a job after I graduate? Or would I just be wasting my time?
For undergrad software eng programs except for Waterloo, it doesn't say anything about the experience in coding to get in .Honestly, do i need experience or will i get taught how to coding in first year or smthn?
Hey guys! I'm wondering if anyone could tell me a bit about Ryerson's journalism program (such as the workload, the difficulty level of the courses, what to except ect.) Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Is anyone at Carleton University for the Social Work program? I'm thinking of applying and would like to know what you think of the program and Carleton U in general (residence, student life, etc.). Also anyone taking Social Work at other Universities what are your reviews? Looking at a Bachelor of Social Work.
That time of year is coming and I'm wondering how many programs/schools you are planning on applying to. Also, what made you choose the programs/schools that you did? (Ie distance from home, reputation, program not available at a lot of schools, etc.)
Hi, if you chose 3 different programs from 3 different schools through OUAC and u get rejected by any of them, will the school ask you for an alternate major? Or will you have to reapply and pay the fees again
So I took majority of my grade 12 courses last year and finished with an 80 in english. My other marks include a 95, 93, 88 and 83. I am also taking three courses this year that will hopefully be able to boost my top 6 average.
My question is, do you think it would be a good idea to re do english? I'm applying for social science so it's the only pr but I had no intentions of taking anything second semester...
I'm interested in pursuing medical school. I'm currently in high school. 1. What university programs are well recognized and prepare you for medical school? 2. I've been looking at UBC, McMaster, Carleton, Waterloo, and SFU. Are any of these universities a uni. that I should not apply to? Thanks for you help.
