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.

I'm a grade 12 student and when I grow up, I want to be either a dentist or a forensic scientist. I was wondering which of the three programs in the title would be most beneficial to me and I want to know the difference between each program (workload, difficulty in content content, etc). I don't mind doing a lot of work but I'd also like time for extracurricular activities and volunteering. Please help me pick which program I should take.
I'm planning on applying to nursing soon and I have physics next semester. I took it in grade 11 and I really didn't like it. If I continue with it next semester, I'd have the same teacher as the previous year. But my only concern is that do I really need it for nursing?
That's where cgw4u comes in. I've read about the course and it seems interesting to me, and I already have a friend who is taking that same course next semester. If this is any help, here's my schedule layout for both semesters:
(I'm taking English online)
P1-calculus & vectors
I've had so many people tell me that if I'm going into a science-based program, then I should take all three. I've checked all the university requirements and none of them have said that I need physics. It just says English, bio, grade 11 university math (or any grade 12 equivalent), chemistry, and two other U/M courses. Should I take physics next semester, or just take world issues? I understand that they're both two completely different topics, but I really don't know what else I can do. I've already searched up on whether I need physics or not, and I've seen mixed answers.
Legit 95% of you fools won’t even become doctors. If you’re into money, just do business, don’t waste 10+ years of school and ruin the chance for a student who deserves to be in med school. I’m sick and tired of people trying to become doctors, just do something else ffs.
Hey, so far this semester I have the most critical subjects that are necessary for the university I'm planning to go to (applying to UofT, Waterloo, Carleton, and uOttawa) as I'm a grade 12 student currently. I just need a few tips for the current year I'm in as my target for the marks I want is 95% + in each course, as well as, I'm looking forward to increasing my extracurricular involvement around the school/community and get a part-time job.
The courses I have this semester are: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (taking a spare too)
Next semester are: Biology, Calculus and Vectors, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student and I'm trying to decide on a good university program and school for getting into med school. I heard that universities like U of T and McGill make it difficult to get a high GPA as it is really competitive. I am interested in McGill, McMaster, U Of Waterloo & U of Ottawa. Where do you think is the best university for keeping up a high GPA and getting into med school? And are there any programs similar to McMaster's health science?
honestly, on these forums the only careers i hear are CPAs, nurses, engineers doctors and lawyers which i'm not necessarily saying is a bad thing. Lots of dedication and passion is seen from you guys. But is there any jobs that people are doing on the rise that not alot of people know about?
I'm in grade 12 and will soon be applying for programs. I knows what program I want to go in but I'm having difficulty choosing schools. Though I know I want to go to McMaster Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Helath Sciences program, but I need 2 more choices. Any suggestions?
I'm a first year Biomedical Mechanical Engineering student studying at the University of Ottawa. Feel free to ask me about anything ( residence, admissions, campus life, academic resources, admissions to other Universities, why u of O, etc.) and I'll answer to the best of my abilities. Fall last year was really stressful for me when applying for uni, so I hope this thread will help you guys out.
I want to do a bachelor of med/biomed sciences, but the question of what if I don't get into medical school keeps in the back of my head. I'm a good student (grade 12, 93%ish average) but I'm trying to plan for the future. Medicine/being a paediatrician or surgeon has always seemed like the only thing I want to do, but I need a backup plan. Would doing a bachelor of health sciences keep more doors open for me? What are other career options from that path? Thanks in advance
Hello,, I'm in Grade 12 and I go to this really good school in Ottawa called Lisgar. I'm moving in a couple of months and I'll be moving to Orleans which is like 20-30 minutes away drive. I have bunch of friends who live there who come to lisgar and im worried that i will be transferred to another school? Will they be easy on me since I'm in Grade 12? My future lies on here and i dont want to swtich, i know my way out, i know the easy/hard teachers and im ready and im doing well in my courses. I literally can't imagine myself switiching ughh...will they even care in all honesty?
I am currently in grade 12, I am thinking about going into business (accounting). I know some universities that offer accounting programs are Waterloo, York, Brock, UofOttawa, Guelph, Windsor. I would greatly appreciate if those who have gone into a business program (preferably accounting) talk about their experiences at these schools and with averages and extra curriculars you got in with (if you remember). Thank you.
Hi, I'm looking to go to the university of ottawa for biomedical sciences. I was wondering if anyone has any experience or opinion on the program/university on general? I have a low-mid 90's average. How's the campus, nightlife, people? Does the bilingual side of the university ever get annoying? How about athletics? Thanks
Hi I'm just confused about the difference between the three programs, will you take the same courses in both, which will one do better in, enjoy better overall, get you into medical school? Also, overall difference between bachelor of life vs. health vs medical science?
