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!

Hey guys! I remember stalking yconic 24/7 and looking at threads with answers to my questions last year and I'd love to help you all out! I'm a first year student (just finishing up my finals) in the Business Administration (BBA) program at Wilfrid Laurier University, ask me any questions you might have and I'll try my best to answer it! Good luck for university acceptances (:
I am pretty confident I can achieve a 93% average in Grade 12 and I have pretty solid EC's but do I have to take calculus? Or can I get away with taking advanced functions and data management?? Some programs that really interest me are Ivey, Queens Commerce, Laurier BBA, McMaster commerce. Thanks let me know!
When do applications for residence at Laurier come out? I know on the website it says April, but does anyone know the exact date? Will they send us an email letting us know when applications are available? Also, opinions on which building to choose @ Laurier Brantford? Thank you in advance!
What are your opinions of Laurier and U of T for their social science criminology programs? Do you think it is easier to get a higher GPA at one over the other? I was accepted to both and am in the process of deciding.
I applied to 7 university programs and I feel like none of them will land me a job once I have graduated. What do I do, its past the deadline to apply to more programs. Do you guys know if the following programs are good?
I would appreciate any feedback on the following programs for Sept 2018. I enjoy the creative arts including drawing, writing, media design. Like most I'm not sure what career I will eventually pursue so I want to be exposed to a program exposing me to a variety of practical courses, with a good university experience.
Laurier digital media and journalism Brantford (currently looking as my preferred choice)
So I really want to pursue a BComm or BBA, but since I've been doing comp sci for the past few years, I've been looking into a lot of unis that offer a combination of both areas (like WLU/UW program, UBC, UofC, etc). Without sugar coating the difficulty of doing two degrees at once, is there anyone than can give me advice on this combination? (job prospects, friends who have done it, experience, etc). ALSO, if you are straight up doing ANY combination, you are more than welcome to answer as well.
I'm currently in grade 12 and planning on going to Laurier next year, I'm also planning to live on campus. What are the most useful things you brought with you that made living on campus easier? Was there anything you wish you didn't bring? Any other useful tips for living on campus are welcome. Thank you in advance.
I am a grade 12 student interested in criminology and originally planned on going to Wilfred Laurier Brantford campus for criminology. Since I made the decision of wanting to go to university in grade 11, I needed to switch my english's to uni but guidance would not let. I finished with an 85% college English.
People are telling me I should go to Humber and take community justice or police foundations as a base course and after 2 years branch off into uni, but I don't know if that is possible or a good idea? I don't want to be a lawyer, but maybe something like a Parole Officer, does anyone have advice?
I am entering my second year this fall in Biology. I currently go to a smaller university far from home and this summer has been very tough on my family financially. It would be better for me if I went to uni in Toronto/Durham region to save money. I was wondering if anyone has their own experiences or heard from friends about how it is like to transfer after second year. Also, I know most schools accept transfers only for the fall term, but I want to transfer as soon as possible so are there any schools which offer admission for the winter or spring/summer semesters? I will need further school after my bio BSc, so for my undergrad years I want to save money. Also, am I making the wrong choice to transfer after second year? or should I just stay and finish up the degree there? Anyone with opinions on how its like transferring from a smaller uni to a larger one?
*I will be transferring into third year
*my grade are pretty decent so far-I only know the first year grades
HEY, just looking into some life sci/health sci programs for next year (I will be doing grad school too) and was wondering how the University of Waterloo is in their sci programs? I know some people who go for their arts/bus but not for sci. Is it a nice school for a science undergrad if I want to pursue grad school? I heard a lot about their coop and engineering but based on my grade 11 marks, I don't know if I will qualify for co-op. Just want any thoughts on the waterloo science programs/faculty and reasons why I should keep waterloo as my first choice *other than Co-op*
*edit-I will be living in rez
Does UWaterloo offer good connections in sciences?
I'm considering applying to Laurier's User Experience Design program, but with it being brand new for 2017, there really isn't much information I can find about it. The program courses aren't even uploaded yet. I was just wondering if anyone else is interested in this program too? And if anyone that went to the Laurier Brantford open house could share their experience with that? I just wish I wasn't going in so blind.
Hey, I am just a transfer student to UW in my 2A term. Can anyone give some info on the social life, parties and community at UW? I want to have a balanced university experience with academics and social life.
Is taking a health sci program at UW (regular) worth it? since health studies require further studies, is it best to go to a lower tier school or should I attend Waterloo (regular program)? What kind of opportunities are available for regular health studies students? all Canadian universities offer amazing education, I am just wondering if UW has better opportunities/networking etc for health studies students
