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.
I noticed that this thread did not exist so i was wondering how the other CFM applicants are doing. If you have applied please state your average, the activities in your AIF and what place is it on your OUAC.
Average: 93.5 top 6 right now but maybe 95 by midterm
AIF: over volunteered at the same place for 2 years, club founder, worked at a bank, member of school math club, house league basketball for all of high school... ect
Every degree is useless if you don't have the motivation and passion to do something with it. University, just like high school is a stepping stone and not necessarily a final step. Just thought this was interesting to share https://www.brandman.edu/news-and-events/news/2017/08/17/13/13/5-things-the-worlds-most-successful-people-have-in-common
I'm currently trying to figure out where I want to apply next year. What are some of the better comp sci programs in Canada (other than Waterloo)? My average is currently sitting at a 95% and I'm from Alberta (although I'm not sure if I want to go to University of Calgary).
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.
I went through alot throughout highschool which resulted in me barley going, my marks in gr 11 were 60’s & 70’s I got through that stuff and decided university is what I really wanted to persue, I have done 3/ my 6 top courses and my average is currently an 87 I’m currently enrolled in the next three.
I just wanna know do universities look down at marks like that? I know if you have been through certain things you can write letters or fill out an application explaining the gap in your marks but, I dont really want to do that because I feel like there are people who have been through worse, I guess my question is should i consider filling one of those out or should I just let my marks do the talking
hey guys I've been seeing a lot of questions regarding Ryerson Architecture as well as how it compares to other architecture programs etc, and I thought it would be nice to directly ask someone who's had some first hand experience! So feel free to ask me anything, I know you guys are all anxious to hear results and have lots of things on your mind so yeah, feel free! I also did my waterloo interview/precis so I can answer questions about that process too:)
I'm currently in an IB school and in grade 11 and I didn't take IB Physics. I was on Waterloos requirements page and they required normal physics which i have taken, but when I select the IB tab, it says HL Physics as an requirement. I have high 6's and 7's and a vast majority of EC's. But im worried that since I didn't take IB physics I'm no longer valid for this program.
Schools like Waterloo and Laurier have co-op programmes, while Rotman, Queens Ivey Schulich have prestige. In which colleges do I have a higher chance of getting recruited after my course is over? I've heard in some cases prestige is so much greater than whether or not you've been in co-op or not.
