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!

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! :)
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 :)
Right now Im currently interest in Lauriers BBA, Brock's BBA, and Ryersons Bcomm (either accounting or management). I just wanna know if these school are good. Right now im only limiting myself to 3. I am retaking a functions course next semester cause my current mark in it isn't amazing, so I cant take calc pretty much, that why I ruled out Queens, rotman, and ivey etc. Also I've heard that laurier offers BA economics and accounting in you dont get into BBA but I'll probably be going to brock or ryerson if I dont get Lauier bba. If anyone is in these current programs, could you help me with knowing which is the best.
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.
How is the social life at McMaster. I'm not asking about the education and courses just strictly asking about the social scene. From what i've heard about McMaster is that it can get pretty dull quickly. Could you tell me about the social scene of McMaster in comparison to UWO, Laurier and Guelph. Thank you.
Hey there guys, I was wondering what you can do with a BBTM. I am interested in this degree as it has automatic co op at Laurier and was wondering what you'd do with this. I would also like to know about the job prospects along with if I can do some sort of accounting degree or commerce with this and what marks people got from last year to get in. This info would be a major life saver and will help me with my future! Thanks!
I'm currently taking both a course in school AND online. It was too late to drop my day school course so I had no choice but to take them both at the same time. If I do horrible in my day school (get 60-70% as a final mark), but I do exceptionally well in my online school (90%+), will this affect my acceptance to universities like Queens, Western, or Laurier, EVEN THOUGH they say they use the highest/most recent attempt's mark?
tl;dr, will universities care at all if they see a low mark on my transcript even though it's repeated with a very good mark? (they claim they only take the highest/recent one, but I'm not sure if a low mark will make them think twice about accepting me)
Hi, I was wondering if anyone had more information about the double degree offered at Laurier with computer science and business (not the program that is combined with University of Waterloo, the program that is only at Laurier). Does anyone know the average admission average? If I have an 86-87 average and strong extracurricular's do I have a chance of getting in? Any and all information regarding this program is greatly appreciated, thanks!
I was planning on taking Advanced Functions on Virtual High School, or Ontario Virtual School? Any recommendations or review or anyone who's taken it before or hear things about it? Anything will help !!!!
I was wondering what's my chances of getting into accounting and Finance at Waterloo this year. My grade 11 marks weren't the greatest averaging just about an 80 because i was fooling around for the majority. But here is my gr12
English - 90
Advanced Functions - 76 but i can bring that up because i got a 60 on a test for which i didn't study but my teacher knows i can do better
Economics - 90
Semester 2 projected
Calculus - 80-85
Accounting - 95-99 my school's accounting teacher is stupid easy
Challenge and change - 90
Overall average: 88-90
EC'S: SAC GR12 REPRESENTATIVE, MADE DECA ICDC ONCE, VOLUNTEERED FOR LOCAL CHURCHES AND LOCAL ELECTIONS, VOLUNTEERED AT A DATABASE RESEARCH, CADETS, VOLUNTEERED TO TEACH KIDS ENGLISH IN CHINA FOR 2 WEEKS, TOOK MUSIC REPETOIRE,
Thanks!! Please give me your thoughts and opinions on what's the chances of getting in and what other alternatives there are.
The title is pretty self explanatory. I know the Brock BAcc program with co-op is pretty good but is it worth it if you don't do co-op? Obviously it wouldn't be as good, but would it still be a good option?
Hey, I'm a senior in high school and I don't know what to do. Originally I had planned on going to either Ivey, Queens, or Laurier, but due to certain issues, I have to stay in Toronto. I am expecting a 91/92 average and I'm worried that if I don't get into Schulich, I will have to a school where I will be presented with fewer opportunities especially considering I want to major/specialize in Finance. Anyone in a similar situation where although they have the marks to get into a certain school, they are unable to go because "it's too far".
Hey there guys, I am currently in grade12 and could really use some help in choosing a potential program I want to apply for. I am looking to be a tax lawyer/accountant/economist... Something along those lines. My grades might not be the highest, but I feel like I am a hard worker (my opinion). Here is what my grade situation is looking like:
Advanced Functions: 78
Data Management: 80
Non Traditional Arts: 84
Most of these grades are my predictions for this semester. I would really like a BBA or a BComm. I want to stay away from a BA unless the program will guarantee me co-op. Thanks for your help!
