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
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.
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.
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?
I was just wondering if I can be accepted to two faculty of engineering programs at McMaster? Or if you were to be accepted to both, would they only offer you admission to one program based on your OUAC ranking?
This site helped me a lot when I was applying for universities last year, so I thought I'd give back to the community.
I am a French international student, but I have lived in Canada a few years ago, so I know the grade system and what kind of averages would get you in different schools (to an extent).
For any frenchies out there my grades were:
16/20 Overall average (8 classes)- equivalent to a 92-95%
Got my Bac Mention Bien (high school degree with honours)
I got into all the schools I've applied to (they all offered my transfer credits, some more than other - York gave me a full year in credits, and UofT gave me a bit more than a semester):
- UTSC Coop
- Rotman commerce
- McMaster commerce
So here you go, Im currently a first year (second year technically speaking as of this semester) at UofT Scarborough campus, pursuing a BBA degree in Co-op.
You can ask me anything (anything really!) about all these schools mentioned above.
I keep it real here, so everything I tell you is exactly what I experience, and you can trust me that I will be honest to you guys 100%. Im not a recruiter/campus ambassador, I won't sugar-coat anything.
Today I just got admitted into 2/3 programs I applied to at UofT.
I got accepted to UTM Commerce and I have a question in regards to UTSC co-op Management (BBA).
It says I got accepted into UTSC, but says "Social Sciences and Humanities" and my offer letter also states that.
I did not apply for Social Sciences and Humanities, however, is that just a counter offer since I did not meet the requirements for the co-op management program? And does this still mean I have a shot at getting admitted into the co-op management program later on?
you guys are all losers, on an educational forum website... get laid...seriously. or if you're too beat for that (which most of you probably are) stop asking questions about universities where ANYBODY can answer them, spend that time studying so you can actually get in.
My top choices or Mcmaster and Western for life sci/med sci. I finished 4 out of my top 6 in grade 11 but last semester (first semester grade 12) did not go well due to personal reasons. If I retake advanced functions or just do calculus online would that affect me in any way? Or will they take the mark from private school. I heard waterloo and uoft penalize your score.
I've been reading and looking into it and I've narrowed it down to two options, I would like to go to either McMaster or Guelph to study physics/chemical physics. I'm interested in co-op and both schools seem to have pretty good co-op opportunities available for physics, plus research opportunities and such. Which school do you guys think is a better school to study physics at? Like which school has the better facilities for physics, better opportunities for learning and experience as well as opportunities for co-op and research, beter faculty, etc etc... Also which school has a nicer campus, nicer residences, and better general public facilities like libraries, eateries, and common buildings/areas? Even if you aren't studying physics (helps if you're still in a stream of science or engineering but it doesn't matter) what is your opinion on the two universities?
yall are so annoying lol like just study and go to university stop bashing schools and saying stuff like "xyz is so bad for business" like BRUH you're still in highschool who are you to judge a university bye lmao
Title says it all! I've seen lots and lots of posts with so many questions! Feel free to link them down below and ill answer as much as I can! (or ask fellow peers)
For those worried about offers, Mac does it very randomly in March! If you are over the estimated range (91+, I think atm) you should get an offer soon! If you are around 89-90, or at whatever the cut off is, you might have to wait till midterms!! Don't stress out so much, it can affect those grades!!
