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.
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
Is there any notable benefit or advantage of taking Carleton's Bachelor of Public Administration and Policy Management over a BA in something like polisci at a university with a better rep like U of T or McGill?

As I was finishing up my Carleton supplementary Application, I realized there aren't any threads for architecture applicants this year yet. If you're applying too, tell me where you've applied and where you've heard back from! That way, we can all network with our future classmates and/or scout out the competition.
I've applied to UofT, Carleton, Ryerson and Waterloo, finished my supplementary applications (excluding the Waterloo interview) and been accepted to UofT.
hello! i'm going to med sci this fall and need some advice on residences. just a few questions tbh.
1) how are the residences usually split up in terms of learning communities / types of kids (like i think that i heard somewhere that most of the football team is in essex bc facilities are closer or something)?
2) which res buildings hold more parties and which hold less parties (i'm not really a party kid lmao)
3) i know that if your avg is above 95, you get first pick. but, if you and a friend both request each other as roomies, will you 100% get to room with each other?
So I already decided that I really want to go to Carleton for finance, but my parents really want me to go to York. We've argued many times now about this and they don't budge at all, any advice? I've looked into the Schulich business, and it is a good program, but I seriously do not want to go, and they simply do not listen. I could just listen to them, but j don't want to spend the next 4+ years somewhere I didn't want to be.
Wanted to know how competitive is carleton graduate masters in cognitive science to get ibto . I'm a computer science undergrad A- grade with project and not research experience and years of IT experience. Also the artificial intelligence program at ryerson/ u of manitoba. Which universities in Canada are my safe bets to apply?
I applied to Ryerson, Carleton, UofT and Laurentian
I don't really know alot of what they are based on, they seem really good though and what I would like. I know Carelton is more art than most programs, and UofT is more theory which I don't know if I'd like, I didn't apply to Waterloo but how does Ryerson and Laurentian compare to those 3?
Mostly I am curious about how the program is different, the kind of people that go there (art students vs science students kinda thing) and how much location matters.
If anybody currently goes to Laurentian as is from more Toronto area, how do you like being in Sudbury? Is the commute to downtown every day bad/tiring or is it okay?
If anybody goes to Ryerson, how is it living in downtown Toronto? I like the city but I don't go often, I think I would like living there though. Sudbury and Toronto are so different, I don't know what is better.

Yes I'm aware it's early! But the last year thread was made in October and some students end up getting early acceptance so this should be helpful! :)
How hard is it to get selected to play for the Carleton University Basketball Team? I heard they are one of the best in Canada. Any Ideas? I have been playing basketball since I was 10 Years old. So I have a lot of experience and practice.
I’ve been accepted to both UWO and Carleton for political science and I am trying to figure out which school would be the best choice for my program. If anyone has some input on this, I’d really appreciate it!
I'm really torn between going to school within Ontario (I live here) and attending school on the east coast. Either way I'll be living away from home but I'm looking for a sense of what I should expect from living a plane ride away versus a car ride away, and maybe some advice for how to choose?
Here's some info about me...
- Applying for business with scholarships
- big fan of extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, etc)
- I'm really close with my friends (obviously) and I'd love for them to visit me/visit them at their universities
-I have a lot of younger friends who I'll also want to see back at my high school
- Seeing my family (extended) isn't a huge deal for me because we're not all that close (we only get together for holidays)
- I would be able to come home for reading weeks and Christmas break if I were to head to the East Coast, and all of that + Thanksgiving and some weekends if I wanted to if I stay in Ontario
- Money isn't really a huge deal, however I think cost of living would be better out east (?)
- I love a good adventure, but I don't really want to be too lonely and I won't know a single person out east
