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.

For a friend, I want to know generally with what kind of averages do students apply to this program @ Ted rogers school of management? Like is it mostly students with 90+ averages because my friend is currently struggling with math and she is trying to reach 75% by the end of first semester but all her other courses she is doing well.
I have been worried about university admissions and if my average is good enough to get into the programs that I am applying to. My first option is Chemical Engineering at Ryerson, Biomed at Ryerson, and Life Sciences at Uoft. My average is about an 85 or 86, and my Grade 11 was really bad (68%). What are the chances that I get accepted into each program?
Also, do any of those programs require anything other than my marks?
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
Guys I know admissions for university can be stressful I have applied to many and know the feeling of rejections and tough time you have making a decision as to where to go. I am here to help so if you have any questions ask up! (Got into UOttawa and Western Rejected from McMaster (average 90% last year))
It’s now our time to apply and be admitted! This thread is geared towards the science programs for Ontario. If you get accepted to the following programs, or any similar: Life science, Health Science, Biology, Bio-Med, Medical Sciences, etc.
(Ontario Universities / 2018 APPLICANTS)
Please TRY Including the following:
Date of Application:
Date of Offer:
Grade 11 Average:
Grade 12 First Semester Average / Second Semester Mid-term:
Yes I'm aware it's early! But the last year thread was made in October and some students end up getting early acceptance so this should be helpful! :)
I am in grade 12 and was wondering what university is better, McMaster or Ryseron. I am applying for social work at both universities. I am also curious what the social life is like at both universities.
After a thorough review, the Common Law Program Approval Committee of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada has granted preliminary approval of a proposed new law program at Ryerson University. In approving the proposed program the Federation’s Canadian Common Law Program Approval Committee identified three concerns that it will monitor in subsequent reviews.
The Approval Committee has a mandate to determine whether a proposed law school program would produce graduates competent for admission to law society bar admission programs. All approved Canadian common law programs must adhere to a National Requirement set by the Federation and the law societies that outlines the knowledge and skills competencies that applicants for entry to the bar admission programs in the Canadian common law jurisdictions must possess.
Until it produces its first graduates, a program that complies with the National Requirement can be granted preliminary approval only and will be subject to regular reviews. The concerns that will be monitored by the Approval Committee in these reviews relate to Ryerson’s faculty complement, program funding resources, and physical resources available to faculty and staff.

Let's just say that lawyers and law students are not taking well to this news at all. Tuition is going to be set at 20k and if they are not approved for provincial funding, then tuition will be hiked to make up that difference.
The curriculum involves having no electives until the 3rd year and being required to take courses in entrepreneurship and coding (which lawyers on the forum find to be pointless academic courses for emerging lawyers).
My personal opinion is that we have more than enough lawyers and law schools. Why are we not getting more dental schools and medical schools?
Right now Im currently interest in Lauriers BBA, Brock's BBA, and Ryersons Bcomm (either accounting or management). I just wanna know if these school are good. Right now im only limiting myself to 3. I am retaking a functions course next semester cause my current mark in it isn't amazing, so I cant take calc pretty much, that why I ruled out Queens, rotman, and ivey etc. Also I've heard that laurier offers BA economics and accounting in you dont get into BBA but I'll probably be going to brock or ryerson if I dont get Lauier bba. If anyone is in these current programs, could you help me with knowing which is the best.
hi guys I just wanted to ask your opinion if I fail advanced functions but do good in another math will I get into Ryerson....I try really hard and practice but tests are so hard and i have a panic attack and blankout..its not fair I study so hard for math but not anywhere..when i do homework questions I get them right but I don't know what happens on tests..i feel so worthless and ashamed like it's not a hard course but im failing Ryerson wants only math but will failing one credit allow me admission there :( I want to do B.comm
Hey guys! I was just hoping to start this thread for students applying to engineering programs in universities so if u got an acceptance or applied somewhere could you please tell us your average and where u applied :)
I'm not sure what to do, I want to have a degree in Computer Science and I cannot get into McMaster for Computer Science because the average is way too high for me. I'm having a difficult time deciding on where I should go I was thinking of going to U of T mississauga for computer Science but i heard the tuition is very pricey and I would want to go to York or Ryerson but they're very far from hamilton and I dont think its a realistic everyday thing. I was thinking of going to Mohawk College first and then get a degree in Software Engineering from McMaster but i'm not sure if that will be a good idea and I do not want to take a student loan because i do not want to be in debt ( my parents have a certain amount saved up for me). So my question is, should I get a student loan and live outside of home and be in debt or take the cheap way out and go through college and then try to get into Mac for software engineering.
I am interested in the program that the University of Toronto and york university is offering for information technologies and they are asking for the mid to high 70s for the average requirements. right now I have mid-70s for average is it possible for me to get into the university
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difficulty/stress level of Ryerson's journalism program as well as the workload? I've heard a lot about how great their program is and plan on attending next year but I want to know to expect in terms of the classes/work.
i need help with applying!! im thinking of applying to uoft track one, mcmaster engineering, uoit mechanical (safe choice) and ryerson mechanical
i dont wanna go anywhere far, only applying for mcmaster since my brother is there right now
i want to apply to mechanical eng at uoft too, because im not too sure about my chances with trackone, but i keep seeing that you should only apply to one program in the engineering fielld at uoft? what should i do? which universities are you guys applying/applied to for engineering? have you gotten accepted and with what average?
The other day I was talking to a ryerson representative and he mentioned that my top 6 don't need to include my prerequisites as long as I have completed them with a grade of 75+. I was wondering if this applies to the York and Western computer science program. Thanks.
