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!

I'm probably going to go for a BBA in university and if I do, I definitely want to do co-op. I'm really not into finances or accounting, and I haven't seen a lot of posts about co-op in OTHER fields since most of them are devoted to finances/accounting. So, if anyone knows anything about any of the various BBA co-op programs in Ontario, please share! Particularly:
1) How good are the placements? (Non accounting/finance)
2) How difficult is it to get/maintain your spot co-op?
3) It's reputation, and whether it will curry favour with future employers
The particular universities I had in mind are Laurier, Brock, Guelph, McMaster, and UTSC, but if you know others feel free to share.
So I have applied to York (Humanities), University of Toronto- Scarborough (Psychology, Co-Op) and lastly Ryerson (Psychology). I was wondering if Data Management (MDM4U) is worth taking in high school for these courses (although not a requirement). I think Data Management will lower my average, but how helpful is it in terms of what to expect in any of these schools for their programs? Overall, should I take it? Thank you!
Hi I want to go into business mangement, economics or international business. My options are either child psychology or chemistry. I know I want to take in grade 12 politics and not continue chemistry for 2 years. Is it worth to take chemistry for 1 yr or not? Does it look better that I took chemistry vs child psychology?
This site helped me a lot when I was applying for universities last year, so I thought I'd give back to the community.
I am a French international student, but I have lived in Canada a few years ago, so I know the grade system and what kind of averages would get you in different schools (to an extent).
For any frenchies out there my grades were:
16/20 Overall average (8 classes)- equivalent to a 92-95%
Got my Bac Mention Bien (high school degree with honours)
I got into all the schools I've applied to (they all offered my transfer credits, some more than other - York gave me a full year in credits, and UofT gave me a bit more than a semester):
- UTSC Coop
- Rotman commerce
- McMaster commerce
So here you go, Im currently a first year (second year technically speaking as of this semester) at UofT Scarborough campus, pursuing a BBA degree in Co-op.
You can ask me anything (anything really!) about all these schools mentioned above.
I keep it real here, so everything I tell you is exactly what I experience, and you can trust me that I will be honest to you guys 100%. Im not a recruiter/campus ambassador, I won't sugar-coat anything.
I have a question for those of youccepted into the University of Toronto- Scarborough. UTSC is my first choice when unit comes to applying to unis next winter; as it is a 20 min drive from my house.
When u were accepted, what was your ad ission average based off of? Was it based off your top 6 gr11 marks? Your first sem gr12 marks? Or somewhere in between? I’m just curious to see because I really am curious about universities now that the time is getting closer. Thank you,
I’ve been accepted to my top three schools all for psych— UTSC Co-op psych, ryerson honours and york honours BA. I’m currently favouring ryerson but I’m really not sure which school is the best. Does anyone have an opinion because I’m having a difficult time making a decision.
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.
I got into UBCO for Science (interested in the data science major) and UTSC for CMS. I don't care too much about the city, social life etc. so purely on an academics, teaching and reputation basis which one should I pick?
Does anyone know the cutoff for cs UTSC last year? I personally have a 89% average with a 94% in advanced functions (still taking calculus), would this be good enough for UTSC CS COOP? If I don't have my calculus mark yet, would they look at my advanced function mark instead?
Does anyone know what the cutoff for last year's cs coop was? Personally I have a 89% average right with a 94 in advanced function. Without my calculus mark yet, would this be weighed the heaviest? Do I have a fair chance of getting in with a 89%?
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.
