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.

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 guys, just want to know what you guys think about doing health sci (regular) at UW compared to any other uni. at both uni's the cost is basically the same and I will be living away from home. I heard that faculties other than eng and cs don't really stand out but is going to uw for health studies worth it? in terms of opportunities and reputation among employers and future career networking? anyone at AHS at waterloo want to give their opinion?
I have lived and worked in onterio for the past two years and a half by the time I start school. I have a ohip card and a onterio Photo ID card. I got the Ohip last September and the photo ID card in like April. I am a independent student. My dad files my taxes though and just files all his kids under his Alberta adress dose this effect my eligablity?
I am currently living at home going to trent uni (bio honours) and also accepted a transfer to waterloo (reg health studies). I need to withdraw from one uni and 'seal the deal' with the other ASAP. My mind was set on the transfer to UW but after seeing threads on how undergrad school doesn't matter for grad school, going to uw only for coop, and I should try saving money living at home, I am stuck on the decision if I should just stay at Trent or transfer. I also know that health studies at UW has a very large course load and not enough space for transfer students like me to take elective to explore other courses. please help me and tell me the pros and cons of each uni and if its best to keep all my credits/GPA and stay at Trent and have the option for double majors or go to UW. (PROS CONS about faculty, social life, city etc)
Hey everyone, which do you guys think has the better nursing program? Humber/UNB or Seneca/York?
I'm having a hard time deciding which one i should choose. I like Humber/UNB because i heard from my friend (she just finished her first year in RN) that students there are not competitive and its closer to my place(1hr and 30-40mins commute, going there). This means that my placements would also be close to me. But I also like Seneca/York because I would have to res meaning i won't have to wake up really early just to get to class. Also bec I honestly think i would focus more. If I'm my house im usually distracted.
I am currently in Grade 12 going towards the Nursing field. I want to apply to the following;
5) Ryerson-George Brown
These are all collaboration programs. I had lots of problems with a particular teacher (not an excuse). I achieved the following marks last year;
Math - 71%
Biology - 65%
Co-op - 93%
Hairstyling - 80%
Chemistry - 56%
English - 56%
Religion - 72%
I had an overall average of 73%. I'm stepping up my game this year, due to the point that I want to put my best effort in. My only problem is is will the universities I'm applying to look at my older marks? If so, should I start going to night school in order to boost my marks?
Finishing up my first semester in Neuroscience at McGill and I'm looking to apply to BScN nursing programs in Ontario (Reasons: the only BScN in English in QC is offered at McGill and I'm not sure I'll be able to transfer + I can live with family in the GTA). I'm looking to apply through OCAS since it's cheaper - so I'll just be applying to uni-collab programs (Ryerson/GBC/Centennial, York/Seneca & Humber).
Are there any students who have successfully transferred from a Canadian university to a BScN program in Ontario? If so, to which schools? And what was your university GPA &/or high school avg? Does anyone know which is weighted more in terms of admissions? Do they just take an overall average, or look at your science pre-reqs specifically?
Any type of feedback would be much appreciated :).
I'm not sure what my GPA will be, I'm aiming for AT LEAST a 3.3 on a 4.0 scale. In high school I think my overall average was around 92%, and in CEGEP it was around 94%.
For anyone else going through the same process, feel free to comment as well :) - where are you transferring from? Where are you applying to? etc.
The simple question is: Where and what program do I go to complete my education from? The longer story however is: 1) I completed my A'Level in Pakistan before coming to Canada as a student in the 2-year Accounting diploma program at Seneca College 2) I completed my program with a program GPA of 3.5 3) Since then (mid of 2016), I've been working at Scotiabank's wealth management division. To be precise, I'm a CSR at iTRADE which is Scotia's online brokerage stream 4) Since I've done my 2 year Accounting program, alot of universities are willing to grant me credit transfers in their bachelor degrees 5) I'm considering completing my studies part-time now (since I need to work full-time to eventually get Permanent status) 6) York University is most welcoming when it comes to Seneca-York partnerships. It is giving me exact 2 years of credit transfer in their BCom program (formerly known as Bachelor of Administrative Studies). The program is administered by the school of arts and professional studies. 7) York also has Schulich but I'm pretty sure that Schulich won't accept my transfers and even if accepted I won't be given any transfers and I'll have to start over 8) I love UofT PERIOD. I just love the university for no apparent reason. But I'm confused between so many programs across campuses it offers 9) I believe Rotman is only present in UTSG and not in any other campus. Rotman again won't accept my transfers and even if I get accepted, will have to start over 10) UTSC has Bcom as well has BBA to choose from and I have no idea which one is better for me (in terms of reputation and curriculum) 11) UTM on the other hand has just the Bcom program which is the least competitive out of all the 3 campuses (but still really good). Because its not Rotman (like UTSG) nor co-op (like UTSC) and I believe its the easiest program for me to get into UofT, out of all the above mentioned 12) You must be wondering what my area of desired expertise is. Well, I'm confused between specialization in Accounting and specialization in Finance. 13) I've been studying Accounting since grade 9 (thanks to my O'Level and A'Level) and my diploma is in Accounting too which will give me much more transfers in degree related to Accounting 14) I'm currently working in the Financial sector. Helping clients with their RRSPs, Equity trading, etc. which although is completely new to me, still interests me alot. And I also see an upward career in the workplace if I stay working and everything goes accordingly, I see a potential career here at Scotia in the Investment industry 15) Thanks for reading that all. Now my problem is that should I go with programs which are giving me good transfers (considering that I already have a career-uplifting employer) or should I go with Schulich or Rotman which will give me little to no transfers (because they're so muchhh better than the rest that they'll give me new heights that I won't be able to achieve if I keep working at Scotia and get a Bcom degree at York or UTM). Something? Anything? PS. I won't be going out of Toronto
