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!

As a grade 12 student striving for medical school, undergraduate grades are crucial. Is McGill's life science program as difficult as it is said to be? If so, is it worth going to this school for the prestige, or would attending UOttawa for easier grades be more beneficial in achieving my final medical school goal?
Hey everyone! I need help, I've gotten accepted to all my universities (except for McGill, I am still waiting) and I've applied for political science and I've narrowed down my choices to UofOttawa and UofT, please help me choose the best option!! give me reasons below.
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:

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! :)
but i'm a 105d student that applied for u of ottawa and i was wondering if there was a self reporting form? because my application says that it's incomplete and the last part i have is where my school will send the transcript to ouac, but that would be in may and don't offers end in around may? how will they assess my admission?
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:
-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA
Hey Guys, I already applied to University, but many of my applications are still pending. I applied to 7 unis for Mechanical Engineering, or General Engineering for the ones that only have it. They are:
1-University of Toronto - Mechanical Eng
2-Queen's University - General Eng
3-University of Ottawa (Double Degree: Mechanical Eng, Computing Technology minor)
4-University of Waterloo - Mechanical Eng
5-McMaster University - General Eng
6-Western University - General Eng
7-York University - Mechanical Eng
I'm in grade 12, and in IB, my average is an 87.8 overall.
Chemistry - 90
Calculus and Vectors - 83
Advanced Functions - 83
English - 91
Business - 92
Physics - Currently Enrolled
I just made uOttawa, but I am still confused to which university I will make or go to...
So far uOttawa Trumps York, Western and McMaster. Is this a good decision? I am currently living near Toronto, and heard good things about uOttawa's co-op. It's also good, as it's a double degree. Ottawa also offered me 2,000$ for admission scholarship, and is going to pay me a minimum of 1,000$ per term, which is decent.
I just wanted to share opinions on the unis I applied to, so that I can make a good decision.
I've already applied to university but am now considering another school as well, is it too late for me to apply? OUAC says "Note: The OUAC still processes applications received after this date and distributes them to the universities; however, specific university deadlines will apply." Is this accurate? is there still a possibility of me getting in or should I just wait to see if I want to transfer the first year? Thanks!
I applied for UBC, SFU, university of waterloo, university of Toronto, McGill university, York university.(all i applied for faculty of arts - economics)
My grade 12 grades (81%)
My class English 12 grade is 81% but I got 43% on the English provincial exam. So the final grade is gonna be 66%
Pre calculus 82%
Those are my top 4 courses. I know my marks are really low. Nevertheless I studied really hard. I am really worried about my English mark for universities requirements. Most of universities require minimum 70% in English. But for York university, it doesn't say about English requirement grade.
Am I possible to get into York university? (Have you guys heard of someone who got accepted with this kind of marks?)
Or can I get into any universities with this average?
I have to take ielts test or Toefl. ( But is there any way to get into York university without ielts or toefl?
Thank you guys.
