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.
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
I'm very confused about the differences between these two programs. My knowledge to this point is that both programs take the exact same courses first and second year, and in third year is where it changes. This is where I'm confused. What are the differences in the programs in third and fourth year? Which program is easier to get a good GPA in? Which program is considered harder? Better? Thank you!
How do you pick which University to go to? I got accepted to all programs I applied for so it is not possible to rule out one that way. I am just looking for advice on how to choose. Or how others like me are making their decisions?
I'm just about to finish my first year at McGill's Desautels Faculty of Management. I got into all the major ontario business programs except QC. If you have any questions about Desautels or McGill in general (regardless of the program you applied for) , I'd be happy to help out!
Hi there, I applied to Western Engineering and my grade 12 marks are as follows:
English 85% (final)
Advanced Functions 82% (final)
Physics 90% (final)
Chemistry 90% (final)
Data Management 93% (final)
Calculus 88% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
Biology 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
History 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
English, Advanced Functions, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus are all prerequisites, and assuming 94% in either Biology or History is my next highest mark for my 6th grade 12 course, (my top 6 including the prerequisites becomes an average of 88.17%)
Does anyone know the cut-off for engineering at UWO last year?
Will I be accepted? (I could not fill out the CONNECT profile for engineering because I applied after the deadline for this optional form). Will it hurt my chances?
If anyone has been accepted already, what was your average and break down of marks by course?
I just finished first year in Western MedSci and I'm going into my second year in the fall. I'm also a 2016 Western National Scholarship recipient (the President's Entrance), so if you have any questions about the program, admissions, or scholarships, let me know!
I can also give some advice on first-year courses if need be - even though I didn't get the most perfect GPA haha (3.8). Also, I can give some insight into a few clubs and the variety/nature of student life!!
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?
Today I just got admitted into 2/3 programs I applied to at UofT.
I got accepted to UTM Commerce and I have a question in regards to UTSC co-op Management (BBA).
It says I got accepted into UTSC, but says "Social Sciences and Humanities" and my offer letter also states that.
I did not apply for Social Sciences and Humanities, however, is that just a counter offer since I did not meet the requirements for the co-op management program? And does this still mean I have a shot at getting admitted into the co-op management program later on?
My top choices or Mcmaster and Western for life sci/med sci. I finished 4 out of my top 6 in grade 11 but last semester (first semester grade 12) did not go well due to personal reasons. If I retake advanced functions or just do calculus online would that affect me in any way? Or will they take the mark from private school. I heard waterloo and uoft penalize your score.
