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!

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.
I went through alot throughout highschool which resulted in me barley going, my marks in gr 11 were 60’s & 70’s I got through that stuff and decided university is what I really wanted to persue, I have done 3/ my 6 top courses and my average is currently an 87 I’m currently enrolled in the next three.
I just wanna know do universities look down at marks like that? I know if you have been through certain things you can write letters or fill out an application explaining the gap in your marks but, I dont really want to do that because I feel like there are people who have been through worse, I guess my question is should i consider filling one of those out or should I just let my marks do the talking
How do you pick which University to go to? I got accepted to all programs I applied for so it is not possible to rule out one that way. I am just looking for advice on how to choose. Or how others like me are making their decisions?
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?
Hey guys hope you are all doing good, anyways let's get back to the topic, I just have some few questions and I would like anyone to help me! I'm from Saudi Arabia wanting to study in Canada alright ? So I applied to like 6 university the programs that I want are electric engineering or industrial engineering, i don't know anything about the university's that I applied to so if you could help me in terms of
1) area of living
2)the collage it's slef is it a good place
3)easy or hard ? Which means like the teachers over there
How is engineering at Guelph? Is it a good program? I'm deciding whether to enter undeclared first year. How is its reputation? I'm still waiting on an acceptance from York. Currently my marks sit at What are my chances with York.
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?
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)?
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:
101 or 105 Student:
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! :)
Having trouble picking between these two. I haven't heard too much about Goodman, but since I want to go into investment banking or a similar job in the finance field is the business school a better option? Thanks for the help guys
