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 find very much information about these programs anywhere other than the official school websites, has anyone heard anything good or bad about the translation BAs at these schools? Or how hard they are to get into? Literally anything would be helpful. Also anything about the entrance exam for the uOttawa program?
Hi! I have heard so many different sides to this topic that I decided to make a forum on it. When posting on this forum please consider that arts degrees can refer to a Bachelors of Arts in English while also can refer to something along the lines of a Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science, there is much variation within the BA degree. Thanks and debate away!
We’re a group of fourth years at Queen’s, UofT, and McGill, studying commerce, engineering, and life sciences respectively. We realize how stressful college applications can be so we’re working on an application related to college supplementaries. We’ve previously helped students write college essays and today, we’re offering free supplementary application editing.
Fill out http://goo.gl/dTx71P and upload your applications: we’ll get back to you with feedback.
We’ll potentially be helping future university students with your application (don’t worry, we’ll only do this after May, when admission season is over). If you don’t have a rough draft yet, leave your email and we’ll offer you another opportunity later in the year.
