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
I'm currently trying to figure out where I want to apply next year. What are some of the better comp sci programs in Canada (other than Waterloo)? My average is currently sitting at a 95% and I'm from Alberta (although I'm not sure if I want to go to University of Calgary).
The more i think about university the more i get worry about my future. Here is my dilemma. In grade 10 my math teacher forced me to take math applied because he didn't think academic was the right class for me. At the time, i didn't know or care about the difference or the impact it can have on your life. Now i find that i can't apply to any programs that require math (adv func, calculus etc). This really closed a lot of doors because now i can only apply to arts programs which are useless most of the time. I applied to mostly poli science as that's the only path i see myself taking without math. The problem is that i know i will dislike poli science as i am more interested in business and i know i'm not the the poli sci type of guy. What do you guys think i should do.
I have a 94 average and I applied for arts that is way over what they wanted and I feel like everyone is getting accepted BUT ME I applied back in the beginning of December and I am getting annoyed because I am getting scholarships and bursaries to go to other schools like UOttawa and even work at the house of commons, Like am I not good enough for McGill? Is 94 not enough for arts, I am just mad because it's my dream school and I am feeling played. :(
Hey everyone! I need help, I've gotten accepted to all my universities (except for McGill, I am still waiting) and I've applied for political science and I've narrowed down my choices to UofOttawa and UofT, please help me choose the best option!! give me reasons below.
I'm an Ontario student who has no AP/IB program offered at my school. I would go into McGill having completed only my 4U courses. Will the material covered in first year be all new, or will it be review? As well, if anyone is from an AP or IB background, did you find the material to be new or review? I'm wondering because I'm curious as to how I would fare in a class amongst students who were exposed to the material, if I would have never seen it.
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?
I want to know what the pros and cons are for each university, but the program of my choice is also a deciding factor. I plan to go to med school and right now, I'm thinking of either getting a B.Sc in Biology or Psychology at McGill, or Cognitive Science (Arts and Science) at U of T.
I've recently accepted my offer from McGill to study Biomedical and Life Sciences and am looking for some advice on which rez to choose. My current top 3 are C4, Citadelle, and New Rez (in that order) because the private bathrooms and large beds really sell it for me haha.
My ideal room would be the large double rooms at C4 but I don't see this as an option when I try to rank my residences. Has anyone applied for this in the past? Would you guys recommend a single room or double room?
I also heard that the hotel residences are not as tight-knit, does this make it difficult to make friends and party?
I'm just about to finish my first year at McGill's Desautels Faculty of Management. I got into all the major ontario business programs except QC. If you have any questions about Desautels or McGill in general (regardless of the program you applied for) , I'd be happy to help out!
I'm a first year student at McGill University studying BBL Science on renewable scholarship and currently staying in rez. If you have any questions that I can answer based on the information above I'll try my best to help you out :)
(Let me just say right away that I got my acceptance in May because of scholarship dilemmas, so if you're afraid about hearing back soon, just know I've been there!)
Got accepted to all of them. Shoot me your questions regarding the application process to the following universities and I'll do my best to answer them for you. If you're a troll, dont even bother wasting your time on here. I didn't have very much guidance when I was applying last year, so I hope that I can provide some guidance to the students applying this year. I know it is quite an overwhelming process, not knowing which universities you will be able to gain admission into, but I can provide you with some general idea of what grades/extracurriculars you would need for the following universities from my own experience.
As a grade 12 student striving for medical school, undergraduate grades are crucial. Is McGill's life science program as difficult as it is said to be? If so, is it worth going to this school for the prestige, or would attending UOttawa for easier grades be more beneficial in achieving my final medical school goal?
I'm an Alberta high school student and was thinking about taking social 30 in summer school. I did social 20 last summer. I don't know if the experiences will be similar though. Do any of you have any suggestions?????
I recently got accepted into McGill, so now I need to look into residence. What is your opinion on each residence at McGill? I would like to know about room size, distance from the main campus, if it's a party rez, and any information that you think is important. Also please tell me if you are a McGill student or not. Thanks!! I greatly appreciate it!
