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.

Hi, I am really stressed out for gr.12 because I'm really scared that I will not get into university. I am interested in going into either psychology or anthropology. Ever since the start of highschool I was always super interested in those subjects.
Anyways I am going to be applying to five universities:
-Western University (really hoping I'd get into this one)
-University of Waterloo
My grade eleven marks: English (gr11): 87%
Forces of Nature: 70% (really hated this class, only went because of guidance recommendation)
World Religions: 90%
Those are my gr11 marks, I'm really disappointed because I was hoping I'd get high grades for early acceptance but really fell off. HOWEVER, my semester two marks were all above 85% which I'm hoping the universities that I want to go to look at. I know I could do well, extremely well, this year but I'm so scared that I will mess up and just blow my chances completely so can you guys just maybe give me a bit of advice for prepping and making sure I am successful??
Hey I was wondering if i could get some information about the health sciences programs and the requirement and the required grades and also what would be the best program to take in order to become a paediatrician. Is Data management a requirement? Please and thank you.
I'm a first year in BHSc at McMaster. Yconic was my life last year in grade 12 and I found all the forums really helpful so I thought I'd make my own. Feel free to ask me anything about the application process, what the program is actually like, or my extracurriculars and stuff. If you're feeling super stressed about anything and need to vent...I get it. I was in your shoes.
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
Hey I was wondering what the academic admission requirements are for universities such as Waterloo, Mcmaster, UofT, Ryerson, Western, and Guelph. Mainly for engineering courses. And also what the best engineering courses at each of these universities is.
PS. I know this is a very big question, and I'm sorry. I am just trying to do some research before I apply.
Hey Guys! I'm currently finishing up my grade 12 year, and looking into Queens Economics as long with Western (Both Social Science). My current finished grades are: ENG4U- 90%, Data Management- 88%, French4U-88%, and I am currently enrolled in Challenge and change (92%) and business (94%). I also have a lot of EC's I am wondering what past arts students got accepted with, and more specific Economics student?
Hey, I was just wondering whether certain universities look down upon private school courses. I have heard that some universities hate private schools where some universities don't care. If you know any could you tell me which ones and for what university programs.
I took Adv. Functions in summer school and I got a 90. My parents want me to retake it in the regular school year so I can get a high 90 in the course to maximize my top 6 average. I'm gonna be applying to McMaster Health Science, Western Medical Science. What do you guys think?
I'm planning on applying to nursing soon and I have physics next semester. I took it in grade 11 and I really didn't like it. If I continue with it next semester, I'd have the same teacher as the previous year. But my only concern is that do I really need it for nursing?
That's where cgw4u comes in. I've read about the course and it seems interesting to me, and I already have a friend who is taking that same course next semester. If this is any help, here's my schedule layout for both semesters:
(I'm taking English online)
P1-calculus & vectors
I've had so many people tell me that if I'm going into a science-based program, then I should take all three. I've checked all the university requirements and none of them have said that I need physics. It just says English, bio, grade 11 university math (or any grade 12 equivalent), chemistry, and two other U/M courses. Should I take physics next semester, or just take world issues? I understand that they're both two completely different topics, but I really don't know what else I can do. I've already searched up on whether I need physics or not, and I've seen mixed answers.
yconic really helped me last year but unfortunately there weren't many people that were in this program on yconic. I can try to answer any questions related to McMaster, my program, what I applied to, residence, etc..
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.
Legit 95% of you fools won’t even become doctors. If you’re into money, just do business, don’t waste 10+ years of school and ruin the chance for a student who deserves to be in med school. I’m sick and tired of people trying to become doctors, just do something else ffs.
Hey there, so I am currently in Grade 12, will probably have a 92-94 average with decent EC's. I am currently aiming to get into AEO, but if I don't get AEO should I still go for BMOS and hope I can still get into HBA? How hard is it?
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student and I'm trying to decide on a good university program and school for getting into med school. I heard that universities like U of T and McGill make it difficult to get a high GPA as it is really competitive. I am interested in McGill, McMaster, U Of Waterloo & U of Ottawa. Where do you think is the best university for keeping up a high GPA and getting into med school? And are there any programs similar to McMaster's health science?
I was thinking of applying and was wondering if anyone knew what the min average is? Also, is it hard to study?(how many hours per day? lots of tests? Is there a lot of memorization to do?) I'm just worried abut the academic aspect of it as I have no idea if this may be the right program for me as I'm not the best at math and don't enjoy bio that much(had an 80 and I tried my hardest). What sciences/math do you need to be good at, are the classes hard, anddd is it easy t make friends or not? is there diversity?
