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!

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.
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?
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!
Im currently hoping to pursue a career in either finance or accounting. I currently have an estimated 91.2 top 6 average. I have been accepted to Brock accounting and Laurier BBA. I understand that both of these are great programs, however I can only really afford to stay within the Greater Toronto area. I have also been accepted to Ryerson accounting and finance, but I hear many mixed opinions of the program. I also understand the importance of co-op and I know that it is much more difficult to secure co-op at TRSM. Is it worth going to Ryerson in my case?
So I applied to the Laurier economics degree specifically economics and accounting I might switch it to finacial management. So like if I get accepted I dunno if I should take it, I went to their open house and asked about the program and enjoyed the school (lazardis) saw the benefits, jobs and the employment rate which was pretty good. However I'm still on the fence because it's an econ degree which feels fishy and my parents disapprove. I mean I could just power through it and aim for a competitive average and switch to BBA But I dunno if i wanna go through all that I might just take my guelph acceptance but that school isn't really known for its commerce (farm school)...sigh any thoughts on the econ program?

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! :)
Is it possible to get condition offers if in English you are getting a 70% but the university page shows a minimum requirement of 75% and your grade12 average currently in low 80's but the program requires your average to be in mid 80's.
Hi everyone, I’m a grade 12 student interested in studying business next year. I’ve gotten early acceptance into four of the programs I’ve applied to, but I’m waiting for Schulich BBA. Right now, my top two choices are Laurier BBA, which I was admitted to late February, and Schulich BBA but I’m torn between the two. In particular, I have a few questions and I was wondering if anyone had advice/answers: 1) How is the student life at both schools? 2) Which program would better prepare me for accounting/marketing? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!
somebody told me they got in with an 80 average and I straight up told them I didn't believe them. They said they got into Waterloo campus because I thought maybe they applied to BTM at brantford campus but no they said Waterloo. And when I asked what program she applied to they said "whatever the commerce is" and I was like.... it's a BBA not BComm lol. Am I crazy for not believing them because I'm pretty sure they didn't get in. I brought it up with them again too and they think I'M being the crazy one for not believing.
Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's.
