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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
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.
As I was finishing up my Carleton supplementary Application, I realized there aren't any threads for architecture applicants this year yet. If you're applying too, tell me where you've applied and where you've heard back from! That way, we can all network with our future classmates and/or scout out the competition.
I've applied to UofT, Carleton, Ryerson and Waterloo, finished my supplementary applications (excluding the Waterloo interview) and been accepted to UofT.
EDIT: Just to give another update, I'm half-way through 3rd year right now. Just went through the PEY process and wrapped that up, so if you have any questions on any of that, I'd be more than happy to share some firsthand experiences!
I was also accepted to Waterloo, Ottawa, and Mac way back when, so you can ask q's about those as well.
I got accepted to Ryerson Business Management (Ted Rogers), and UTM Commerce. I'm having a hard time deciding between these two. Ryerson offers 1 year co-op as well as a possibility to study abroad for a semester (which would look good on a resume), however, the Ryerson program would be 5 years. UTM has the big name that everyone respects. Also I've heard that UTM is more heavy on math which I'm really not a fan of, plus commerce is super competitive at UTM.
If anyone of you are in any of these programs, please let me know what you do and do not like... and just your overall input will be appreciated.
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.
Any questions about life at the university of Toronto, trinity college, rotman commerce I'm here to answer! currently a first year rotman student :) been through all the pain you're going through ( I didn't get my rotman acceptance until May ) so I know how you're feeling!
So I applied for the Management Co-op program at UTSC. However, I got an alternative offer for Social Science and Humanities. Also on my joinID profile, the management program isn't there anymore. Does that mean I have no chance at all for the Management and pre-management program? Considering that they still havent gotten my midterm marks yet.
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?
