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.

Hey guys, I've just been accepted to the U of A for Pharmacology and the U of T for Pharmacology/Biomedical Toxicology. I would highly appreciate some insight as to which school is the better choice, all things considered.
Here is some information about my situation:
- I reside in the same city as the U of A
- I have relatively good grades (92% admissions average)
- Money isn't a serious issue, but I am not wealthy
- I will be 17 when I start post secondary in the fall
- I've never lived on my own but I think I can manage
I'm an international student, I'm very new to Canada, but now I'm in grade 12 so I have many questions about http://University.To be specific, I'm interested in Pharmacy, my English grade is high B, and all others course range from low A to high A.(86%-96%)Can you guys help me please?
List of my question:
1)I think about 3 options: UAlb, Waterloo and UofT and I choose Faculty of Science for the first 2-year to complete prerequisite courses(General Science degree in UAlb, and Life Science in Waterloo, UofT). Will I have completed all prerequisite courses for Pharmacy in 2 years if I choose these programs?
2) Will my highschool average GPA meet the requirement in those 3 uni? ( I did find that my highschool average GPA will be highher than that in the requirement, but some of my teachers said that I had to have 95%(high A) to get admitted)
3) In which 3 of those uni, will it be easier to get high GPA in first 2 years uni study for Pharmacy?
4) What universities should I apply( my dream is Pharmacy) if those 3 uni mentioned above are too difficult
5) Do I need to write my personal profile for the application?
6) I didn't volunteer much, is it disadvantageous for my profile?
I am so anxious. I am applying as 105D applicant and really want to know when I'll find out if I'm accepted to schools. Does anyone know when 105D applicants start receiving acceptances for Waterloo, Toronto, McGill, Western, Alberta, and basically any school you can think of in ontario?? Thanks
I’m applying to both and got accepted at UofA so far. I’m applying to the Okanagan campus. I got accepted to Bachelor of Arts at UofA and am applying for Bachelor of Science at UBCO. Im not quite sure what university would be the best to choose, assuming I get accepted to UBCO. Any input would be great thanks! I’m also living on residence for both!
I'm in my second year as Student Senator of the school and second year as one of two student trustees in my school board, I volunteer with heart & stroke and cancer society, I've done six years of work with Me to We, I lead the Gender/Sexuality Alliance within my school... etc.
What do you think my chances of getting to those schools are? Scholarship possibilities? Thanks!
I can’t decide which program I would like to complete in University. I want to get a bachelor in science in either phycology or biochemistry. I want to do dentistry or optometry after undergraduate. Which would be beneficial to me? I can’t decide and I really like them both! Thank you!
We have created a facebook group for prospective and accepted students looking to join university of Alberta in 2018 fall/winter.We already have over 50 members.This group's purpose is basically to share information,socialize and most importantly to meet new people and make friends before the start of the Uni.We also plan to -
1)create a facebook group chat for incoming students
2) And hold weekly group of 5 video call introduction and meeting event before the start of the uni. Here's the link -
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.
Hey guys, so I decided to start a discussion about the following universities or any you may want to discuss regarding the overall university life: campus life, academics, clubs, sports, atmosphere, experiences, profs, food, party school type, nearby places located by campus. Basically, how you find the university you may be attending or if you are a transfer and what you liked and disliked.
So I’ve applied to two universities thus far but I’m scared my grade won’t cut it as I’m in Alberta and they tell you what courses they want. Anyhow my chem bio math and social grade are all between 80 and 85 this is grade 11 btw but my English is at 67. Will that bring me down? I’m planning nursing/chemistry
