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.
It’s now our time to apply and be admitted! This thread is geared towards the science programs for Ontario. If you get accepted to the following programs, or any similar: Life science, Health Science, Biology, Bio-Med, Medical Sciences, etc.
(Ontario Universities / 2018 APPLICANTS)
Please TRY Including the following:
Date of Application:
Date of Offer:
Grade 11 Average:
Grade 12 First Semester Average / Second Semester Mid-term:
Yes I'm aware it's early! But the last year thread was made in October and some students end up getting early acceptance so this should be helpful! :)
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 figured y'all grade 12 students should have the chance to ask any questions about universities. I'm a registered boother for the University and I can definitely answer any questions about residence life and living alone in general, also feel free to ask about course work/load and basically any question that pops up in your mind! I was in your position last year and I definitely understand the stress that comes with grade 12, just know that it will all work out :)
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!!
What is required to switch from a social science major to a computer science major. Is it difficult and time consuming to switch faculties in 1st/2nd year? Please tell me about the requirements and courses needed to take to switch faculties. Thank you
I applied to the general engineering program at Western University just a few days ago (Dec 5th if I recall) but haven't received any acceptance offer yet. Many of my friends at my school have received offers however, which is quite concerning.
My marks are as follows:
12 Functions - 96
12 Calculus - 96
12 Physics - 92
12 Elective - 99
11 Chem - 88
11 English - 78
Average - 91.5
I thought the reason I haven't gotten in was because I haven't filled out any supplementary application information, but I can't seem to find anything else that I need to submit to the university. I also selected "Yes" for considering AEO opportunity, so maybe that's why I haven't gotten in yet? I also only selected Western as my 5th choice on OUAC, so I honestly don't know.
So I was wondering if there's any additional things that are necessary for me to do in order to get selected, or was wondering why I still haven't gotten selected. Help would be greatly appreciated
My current top 6 average is hovering around an 87 (Termed, not semestered), and I'm applying for Life Sciences at Mac and Waterloo, General Science at Western, and Trent and York. I'm hoping to get into med school one day, but I'm fully open to other career options that might open up along the way. I had bronchitis for the first two months of school which really messed up my chem and bio marks because of the heavier material at the time, but I'm still confident I could get them up by maybe 4-5% by the time universities see it.
Hey guys! I was just hoping to start this thread for students applying to engineering programs in universities so if u got an acceptance or applied somewhere could you please tell us your average and where u applied :)
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.
It is my dream to become a nurse, but also to get into one of my top choices for school. My main concern right now is that I have taken AP Functions, which is an accelerated course where we do Grade 11 Functions for most of semester 1, and then Grade 12 Advanced Functions from end of semester 1 until the second last month of grade 12. I feel like I made a huge mistake by taking AP instead of University, because my math mark dropped 9% from Grade 10 to Grade 11. My current average right now near the end of first semester is 88%. I am going to be dropping AP Grade 12 Functions and just taking University Functions as well as Data Management in grade 12.
My main worry is that I won't have Advanced Functions until second semester grade 12, so universities will look at my grade 11 mark. I will be dropping all AP classes in grade 12 and just taking university levelled courses, and I am going to work much harder. I am just very worried about the grade 11 functions mark.
The schools I am wanting to apply to for Nursing are Queens, McMaster, Ottawa, Trent and Western.
I'm in grade 12 and I've applied to Western/McMaster/Guelph/Trent/Queens for biomedical science related programs. I really wanna get into Western tho so before I decide on it I just want to know what it's like there social/academic wise
The other day I was talking to a ryerson representative and he mentioned that my top 6 don't need to include my prerequisites as long as I have completed them with a grade of 75+. I was wondering if this applies to the York and Western computer science program. Thanks.
Realistically, what are the requirements to get into Ivey from undergrad. I'm currently a 1st year social sci. student studying econ at Western and i'm curious on what it really takes to get into ivey. Im going to take Business 2257 and do the best I can in increasing my gpa so tell me what else I need to do
