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.

someone please assure me because i dont want to finish with a psychology degree then end up homeless.
please tell me the advantages and pros and stuff so i dont go crazy.
Do you know anything about this program that might help me? I recently got accepted to it and the information online is so vague. If you have had or heard of experiences in this program please let me know.
Thank you :)
Hey! So I applied to UTM and UofA and got accepted into both for commerce (I want to go into accounting). I’m leaning towards UTM even though it’s more expensive with tuition but I’m kind of scared... I’ve heard it’s super competitive in UTM Commerce and it’s hard to find jobs afterwards. Also, I do enjoy math and that’s basically all I’ve been exposed to at my school like I mean there wasn’t any stat courses I got to take so I’m hoping that I’ll excel in accounting and be able to earn my CPA degree and not feel like commerce isn’t for me, especially if UTM Commerce is supposed to be super challenging. If someone’s in their second year of commerce or has experience with stat courses, planning on commerce, or specifically going for UTM BCom can you tell me how it is at UTM or what you’ve heard? I would really appreciate any advice. Also, does anyone know if there is a Co-op program in UTM for commerce? Thanks a lot!
Anyone here got admitted into comp sci at UTSG? I recently got an email saying that they are reviewing my application, but my status on join uoft has been 'application received' for weeks (I applied late December if the timing matters). Also, for UTSG, I ranked trinity as my first choice - will I get rejected from the university outright if the college doesn't want me, or will I just be 'deferred' to my second choice college?
I've also applied to UTM and I've been accepted (that was initially my first choice on OUAC, but after talking to people and doing more research I'd rather go to UTSG since I'm wanting a walk-on shot at the varsity swim team). Will my application chances to UTSG be affected by this, or are the two campus admissions separate?
My grade 11 average was somewhere in the mid 90s (top 5 classes), a lil higher for first semester grade 12. I've taken 2 undergrad classes at a local uni (90 and 91, for CS140 and first year Calc) if those numbers even matter.
thanks for the help everyone! hopefully y'all can help me make sense of this :)
Is it possible to get condition offers if in English you are getting a 70% but the university page shows a minimum requirement of 75% and your grade12 average currently in low 80's but the program requires your average to be in mid 80's.
I'm a grade 12 student and applied to the UTM life sciences program. I was wondering if I will get accepted to this program with the current marks. (I got acceptances to Ryerson and York for the Biology program so I was wondering if I have a chance for UTM).
Advanced Functions: 77 (Im currently retaking this course this semester)
I applied to utm life sciences, Guelph for biological sciences and western health sciences. I have a 85.6% grade 12 average in my semester 1 final marks, and around a 74% grade 11 mark (I know, I sacked off). What are my chances of getting accepted? I’m getting nervous because a lot of people are on their second or third offers now.
Is their February round offers over yet? I'm a little bit worry because i know my marks are gonna drop for sure on the next report card (comes out on April) and i still have not received an offer. The acceptance rate is mid 80s according to their website, and i have a 89. And does anyone know if they send out more offers during march? compare to the amount of offers they send out in February
Hey, I applied to UTM for Forensic Science(major) and I am still waiting for the offer (I didn't get accepted in the first round....) Does anyone know have what average could probably get in? They said the average is around mid 70 to 80, but I think it should be higher？Also, how many people will be accepted to this program each year？I think they have a very limited space for this program... Here are the marks I got in Grade11 English: 68 (just accidentally dropped because of some reason) Math: 82 Chem:88 Bio:84 Grade 12 first semester final: Advanced function: 85 Bio:74 (I know I did so bad and I am retaking it in online school, aiming for 85- 90) I am taking Chem (aim for 85), Calculus(aim for 90) and English this semester. Hope someone could answer me Thanks!!
Hey guys! I've been seeing a couple of these incoming student posts, so I thought I'd do one for Business/Commerce in general.
I applied to York Schulich, UofT Rotman, UTM Commerce, Queen's Commerce, WLU BBA, and Western BMOS + Ivey AEO and got into all of them. I ended up choosing Queen's Commerce.
So feel free to reply to this post if you have any questions about any of the above universities or programs. I used this website a ton when I was applying so I thought I'd try to help some 2022 kids :) I also researched a lot for the above schools.
For the UTM admission scholarships, it says they are based on your admission average. Am I correct in assuming this means your average at the time they send the acceptance letter? Also, their first round of acceptance starts this month and as of right now my grade 11 and grade 12 semester 1 marks appear on my OUAC forms. Which of those marks are they going to use to calculate my average? Will it be all of them, or just the top six, or some other combination? One last question. If something counts for 2 credits, do you count it twice when calculating your average?
I've gotten early acceptance into Brock and Laurier, and they've both given me an entrance scholarship based on my grade 11 marks. Last year my average was about an 84%, but this year, my first semester marks have been around an 87%. (For entrance scholarships, the amount given for 80-84.9% and 85-89.9% are different!!) If my total grade 12 mark is about an 87%, will they raise my entrance scholarship amount???
