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 am currently in grade 12 and I'm just wondering what everyone's marks were in getting into this program life science at St. George As of now my grade 11 marks are at 87 average and I'm aiming to get a 88 average in grade 12 will this be okay for me to get in or will I need to aim higher
Hey guys I was wondering what is the order for best CS schools in Toronto? I obviously know that St George is the best but what comes after that? York? Ryerson? UTSC? Please let me know. Also what do you think the cutoffs will be? Thanks in advance!!! :)
Hey so I was wondering what realistic chance I have of getting into ryerson, uoit, uoft st George and Scarborough ( uoft for life science and biology for ryerson and uoit)?
My average is about 81% which is pretty crap ik and ik that I basically have like no chance in getting into uoft but I’m way more concerned about ryerson.
The courses that I’m raking this year is math (76%) physics (80%) and biology (88%) along with a spare. Since my average is low should I also take a grade booster next semester instead of a spare or??
I recently applied to U of T Rotman and UTSC Management Co-op. I completed my supplemental application over the break. When I go to check my application status, even though I submitted everything, it doesn't say it "received" it. Is this normal?
I am a second year student specializing in Management and Finance and the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus.
I was on this website a lot when applying to universities and many of these forums didn't have the answers I was looking for. ASK ANYTHING, and I will answer. Ask questions on requirements to get in or stay in, ask about hard courses, required courses, hard professors, commuting, campus environment, literally anything and I will try my best to respond. I also know a lot about the COOP and Pre-Management program as well, so please don't hesitate to ask.
The neuroscience program is something I began considering during my gr.12 bio course while learning about the brain. Understanding how the brain works and affects our everyday behaviours, as well as abnormal behaviours, is something that really fascinates me. However, because this is a relatively new interest of mine, I haven't really had the time to look deeply into what the program would be like in university.
If you're in university, studying neuroscience, I was wondering if you might be able to tell me what the program is like? What have been your favourite aspects of the program? What kinds of courses do you take? What has been the most challenging part of the program for you? What got you interested in neuroscience/what inspired you to enrol in the program?
I've applied to UTSC computer science with co-op, and I was wondering if anyone has received their joinUFT id and if they have checked out the Supplementary Application Form, and maybe you could inform me as to what sorts of questions are on it. Also, does anyone know if there is a Supplementary for UTSG computer science?
Hi, I am interested in both law and life sciences. Overall, I would like to get into a Medical school with an undergrad BA degree (from criminology, or political science). To do so, would I have to take science electives, which specific electives are they? I am trying to get into UTSC, Mac, Western, or York. If there is anything else you think I should know, feel free to comment any suggestions!
Hello, I’m a grade 11 student. I was wondering when people do their ECs during university. Like for med school, for example. You need a very high GPA and lots of ECs. How can u do both at once without them interfering with each other, (more so ECs with grades). Thank you for taking the time for reading my question.
BTW I’m not really considering Med School, that was just an example.
I was wondering if the life science programs at uft (st george and scarborough campus), york, ryerson, or the medical or health science at western, or life science at mcmaster will look at my overall average, or seperate marks (ie looking at what i got in chemistry, biology, etc)
I am choosing between going to Computer Science at UTSG (with PEY) or UTSC (with co-op). So far I've heard things mostly in favor of UTSC (better environment/social life, Co-op, easier marking, etc.), and few things in favor of UTSG (other than the campus looks great). But then why does UTSG comp. sci. require much higher marks than UTSC?
I would prefer co-op over PEY (due to multiple future references on resume and higher pay), but I will also pursue a Masters in comp sci. Which campus would you recommend?
Basically, I want to be a forensic psychologist when I grow up and have been looking into uni programs. I have found psychology programs in general around my area but not anything that specializes in forensic psychology. Do u think its best if I major in psychology and minor in criminology or another law-related program? Also is a BA or BSC the best choice for me?
Hi I am Ontario High School Student applying for U of T Computer Science. Does any fellow students know the admission average from last year for all 3 campuses, more specifically Scarborough and Mississauga campuses?
