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
Hey guys, university applications to Queen's Commerce has just begun!
Please post about the following :
-Projected grade 12 average
-grade 11 average
-Date of admission when available
-Other universities of interest
-Projected grade 12 average 93.5%-95%
-Grade 11 average 93% ( included 3 grade 12 courses, economics (94%), business leadership (97%), grade 12 english (88%))
-EC'S: Deca, president of accounting and financial management club, president of investment club, coach for school tennis team, coach for school baseball team, badminton team, ultimate frisbee team (fall and spring seasons), part time job as a tennis stuart, weekly childcare worker at my church.
I know there is already one of these, but I thought I would offer a different perspective. I am currently nearly done first year in Queen's Engineering (we have a general first year, and I am doing Geological Engineering next year - I came in thinking I was going to do Eng Phys but changed my mind about 1000 times). I am also considering doing a dual degree with astronomy, as planetary geology (the geology of other planets, a key for space travel) is my main interest.
I finished first semester with a 4.0 GPA, which translates to a mid-high 80s average, and am predicting a 4.1 for this semester.
I have been involved with various sports, arts, and engineering clubs this year. I am also going to be a residence don for next year, so I can answer questions about residence as well.
I volunteered at both fall preview days and the March break open house, so there's a good chance some of you may have met me! This also means I know a little bit of the ins and outs of admissions and such.
Feel free to ask me anything about eng, the school as a whole, extracurriculars, or anything else!!!
Hey guys! I'm a first year engineering student at queens and I can totally help answer any of your questions about applications, eng, queens, res life, or the best places to nap on campus! Hmu I'm always down to help some people out, I known how stressful application season can be :)
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?
With the last of Queen's Commerce acceptances coming on May 18, that is only 10 more Wednesdays'. Who has gotten in without being nominated for Chancellor’s Scholarship? If so, when and what were your averages.
We can keep this thread going as each Wednesday passes by.
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?????
Hello! I was wondering if any of the high school class of 2018 has heard back from Queen's engineering and if you have, what was your top 5 average?? :)
I was also wondering if I have any chance of being admitted if my marks are....
AP Chemistry: 88% (final)
AP Physics: 92% (in progress)
AP Calculus: 94% (in progress)
English (not AP): 90% (in progress)
AP Statistics (data management): 95% (final)
Edit: turns out I actually have a 92 in physics :))
Also, this doesn't go into the calculation of my average but if it helps I have a final mark of 93% in Advanced Functions
My ECs are decent, and I wrote all my AP's on my PSE so Queen's will know that I took them. I would say that my PSE is average, maybe slightly above average, although I know that this is very subjective. This was only my first submission average so hopefully I will be able to get it to 92.8% at least by April. Do you think I could possibly get in?
Hey everyone, I'm in my first year of engineering at Queen's University. I remember how stressful this time last year was, as I was waiting for acceptances and trying to decide where and what I wanted to do for the next 4 years! I ended up choosing Queen's engineering and I'm pretty happy with that decision so far!
Ask me anything about Queen's eng or Queen's in general and I'll do my best to answer!
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 applied for similar programs in Physical and Chemical Sciences at McMaster, Guelph, and Queens, and I have already recieved an acceptance from McMaster. I've been looking into the programs at each university, as well as the facilities, campus, and student life among other factors, but can't seem to come to a definite decision on where I want to go. Which of these three universities would have the best experience for a program in chemical/physical sciences? I eventually want to major in physics. Also what are some opinions on what the co op and research opprotunities are like at each of these universities? And thoughts on the general student life (residence, food, student assistance/accommodation, things to do in spare time in and around campus)?
ask me anything about queen's, business school, university life, your wildest concerns, etc. there are no stupid questions lmao, i remember going on yconic searching for some really silly stuff while applying for business schools. it's lit
- third year, currently on winter exchange (lot of fun!)
- interning this summer at a telecom (think Telus/Bell/Shaw/Rogers)
- applied as a chancellor's scholar outside of ontario
