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 used this forum quite a bit when I was deciding on a school last year so, I'd be happy to answer any questions from prospective nursing students!
I applied as a transfer student (105D) with a 3.96 GPA from one year of uni, and a ~96% avg. from CEGEP/high school (I'm from QC). Thus, if you have any questions regarding ON high school requirements, I probably won't be able to answer them.
If you have any questions regarding the program/courses, schedules, the GBC site, etc. I'd be more adept at answering those.
“May 8, 2018
Target date for Ontario universities to receive second-semester midterm and interim grades for full-year courses from the OUAC. Grades that the OUAC receives earlier will be sent to Ontario universities when received.”
What does this mean? Like lets say my midterm marks is an 83% avg and it increased to lets say an 87% avg before May 8 would they look at that mark (is this interim) or midterms??
hey guys!! I have been accepted to both Ryerson and the George Brown collab for nursing and I am having a tough time deciding between the two. If anyone has any insight to share it would be greatly appreciated!!!
Just recently this year around November I decided that I wanted to become a Nurse. I was unsure in the past but I feel like it is right for me. I have taken biology and chemistry but I'm not sure if I will get in with an 87.3% average for the GBC, Centennial, and MoMac collab programs? Do you think I stand a chance??????
I got a 55 in gr 11 functions by not doing my homework that much and not asking questions when i should have and not going to extra help and not reviewing. If i fix all these could i get atleast an 80 in gr 12 advanced functions.
I'm a 24 years old female from Switzerland and I'm going to Toronto next year to do an university pathway program at a language school (April - August). After that, I'm planning to go to a college with something like an one year Art Fundamentals program, which covers many fields like graphic design, animation, photography etc. Because I don't know which subject I want to focus on yet.
I've graduated with an vocational diploma in business and I've been working in this field ever since. So I don't really have any academic background in art.
But I've been able to be creative in the past at work, like designing Xmas cards, calendar and I also like drawing, photography, making firefox persona in my free time. I really like art so I want to change my career and I want to do that abroad, as I want to travel and widen my horizons.
I've been researching for a long time and found these colleges with basic art programs:
George Brown College: Art and Design Foundation Program (1 year)
Seneca College: Art Fundamentals (8 months)
Humber College: Art Foundation (1 year)
Centennial College: Art and Design Fundamentals (1 year)
Sheridan: Art Fundamentals (1 year) OCAD: First-Year Art
Humber sounds good, so I'm planning to apply - but does anyone know more about the other colleges? I would choose based on their courses but an overall experience or opinion about the college itself would help me a lot to make a decision as well. Tbh I can't finance the studies, but I will still apply and try to get scholarship/credit and work on the side to make it happen because I really want it.
Sorry for my long post D: but I would be very glad if you could share your opinion or tips etc. It's my first time going alone abroad. Thank you so much!
Hi! I'm currently a grade 12 student interested in nursing. I have a 94% avg from grade 11 but my grade 12 avg isn't looking too hot. Most of my required courses are in the high 80s to low 90s. My avg will probably end up in 85%-90%.
I'm planning to apply to the nursing program at McMaster, York-Seneca, Ryerson-GB, and Ryerson-CC. My backup programs are Life Science at Waterloo and maybe Biology at UofT. McMaster is my first choice but I honestly don't think I'll do well on the CASPer test.
What are my chances of getting into McMaster if I do mediocre on CASPer? How long should the answers be? How did you study for CASPer? Any advice? What are my chances of getting accepted into one of my choices? What are my chances of getting rejected by all of them? What other schools (located in Toronto) should I apply to? Is it a bad idea to commute to school (approximately 1.5hrs) while enrolled in nursing?
I'm pretty stressed out over this so any answer is greatly appreciated!
Idk what I'm doing wrong with my studying but I can't get high marks in math, maybe i should study 2-3 days ahead instead of the day before. I'm not sure.
Over the next two weeks I have 10 tests to do, and I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman. Maybe if i studied ahead i might but its hard to change study habits.
I know York BAS, Ryerson Bcomm or BBA ( forgot) is easier to get in. Can you guys recommend me other programs that are in Toronto?
Hey, so I'm applying to McMaster Medical Radiation Sciences and Biomedical engineering at uOttawa and well I'm unsure about something. If I get an 88% average with my top 6 which may not include math but law instead for instance, would I still have a shot of getting in? An 88% is higher than the minimum of an 85%
So, I've heard really great things about both the college collabs with Ryerson and was wondering if people can put their input on how they like their programs etc if you go to any of the ryerson nursing programs.
- Are you treated differently in the collab programs compared to the ryerson mainsite?
I was wondering if any of you yourselves, or have friends who transferred into nursing after a year or 2 of university? I have a high 80s average but still haven't gotten into any nursing programs yet. So if I don't get into any, I was planning on transferring after a year of kinesiology. Does anyone know what that process is like or how hard it will be? Im planning on trying to transfer into either western, queens, ryerson, york, or Ottawa.
Thanks so much! Just trying to do whatever it takes to eventually get a BScN
Hey guys I recently accepted my offer to the nursing collab program at ryerson in the george brown site! I have a few questions regarding course selections and all that, so if you could help that would be greatly appreciated!
Do i pick my courses in the RAMSS or the george brown website? George Brown requires a student ID number to log in to their STU-VIEW site but i don't know where I can get that? I only have my ryerson student ID number. I applied through OUAC, not OCAS. Please help!
Guys I need your help!. please..I really need advice about being wait listed by Ryerson for the collaborative program for nursing this fall term. I have an 85.7 average and the program admission average is 83-88%. Is there any hope of me getting off the waiting list?. Is being wait listed a polite rejection?. Guys please pray for me!!
