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!

I'm in senior year of High School and beginning to apply to post-secondary. I've already finished my applications for SFU and UVic. My other schools of interest are UBC (Vancouver campus) and Concordia University, however, my GPA from last year was only sitting around 3.67, which worries me a bit.
Teachers have not sent out any grades so far this year, but assuming I score a similar/slightly higher average, what are the chances that I could get into these schools? I've done some volunteer work, and intend on doing more throughout this year, but don't do any sports or fine arts.
Though I'm not set on what I want to study, some courses of interest include Behavioural Neuroscience, Chem & Biochem, Anthropology, Psychology, Criminology/Criminal Law, Languages (French & English) and Social Justice type courses. Any insight on this/opinion helps, thanks! :)

I don't know if it exists, but does Concordia University at Montreal give out entrance scholarships (based on admission average and no application needed). I literally cannot find any information regarding this on their website.
Hi! I am an international student and I'd be transferring to a Canada university very soon. I am posting my questions on here hoping some Canadian might answer my queries on whether Carleton U or Concordia would be a better suite for me.
1. I would be majoring in Political Science (International Relations) and I want to take french up. The reason why I am considering Concordia is due to the factors that it is in a french area -Montreal thus giving me the opportunity to pick it up faster and practice it. But what about Carleton? Is the french program there any good? I have 0 knowledge in french.
2. I did my research and was told that Concordia is in downtown thus being in the middle and accessible to everything with just a walk away. However for Carleton, it's more secluded and I can only rely on campus as public transportation sucks? if so, how far it is to downtown?
3. I am also a very athletic person. I cycle, swim, muay thai, run and play netball on a weekly basis. I was told that Carleton has a big ass pool and that they are more physically inclined compared to Concordia and was told that Concordia lacks a lot in their facilities. Is that true?
4. My last question would be the clubs. I am a very active person and I am currently involved in many volunteering events in my area like UNHCR or other NGos. I didn't get much info on these two unis but do u reckon which is more likely to be more active?
Overall, judging by my questions, do you think Carleton or Concordia would be a better suite for me? I was told that they both have good Pol Sci program so now it comes down to whether which suites me best!
So we're getting pretty deep into the admission processes and people are starting to accept some offers! I think this thread will help a lot of people see where everyone is going and why. So I've got a question:
Which one of these programs would provide me with the best opportunity to get into med-school in regards to GPA, research opportunities, and overall experience? Also which one would provide me with a greater chance of acceptance in US med-schools?
I'm an international student and I applied to Concordia university and they asked for activities/work/studies after I completed high school. However I don't have any of what they asked for expect currently I'm doing ILETS preparation then doing the test afterward. Does this have huge impact rejecting me?
So I've been accepted to UOttawa and Concordia university for CS. Can anyone help me to choose from them. The thing is that I've got a zero knowledge for french and here lies the main problem. Where UOttawa is a bilingual university, montreal on a whole is a bilingual city. So this is causing me to be a bit biased towards UOttawa. But again I really don't want this to decide the university I'll be joining this fall. Please help me to choose the university on basis of school culture, coop, prestige(tbh not matters much), future job scenario,COA. If it helps, I'm an international student.

What are my chances of getting an admit in any of these following universities? Thanks in advance for reply!
Simon Fraser University - Professional Big data Program, Ryerson University, UOIT, Carleton University, Concordia University, University of Saskatchewan, Western University, York University, University of Guelph, Queens University.
I'm an Ontario Grade 12 student who will be starting university applications very shortly. I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go to university. However, I am nervous about one of my marks, I had an 87% average for my 3U/3M courses. Although I have just started grade 12, I already have two 4U credits: FSF4U - French (94%) and MDM4U - Data (64%). I am not planning to apply for any business or sciences program but I am still worried about my math mark having an impact on my university admissions. I will have more than 6 4U courses, so data should not be part of my top six. Should I be worried about this mark even if I do really well in my other subjects, particularly for admission to McGill and Queens?
