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.
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
first of all, i want to go into psychology (bsc), but the thing is im reading these forums and people are like psychology degree is a waste of time because you cant do anything with it plus they dont get paid well.
someone please assure me because i dont want to finish with a psychology degree then end up homeless.
please tell me the advantages and pros and stuff so i dont go crazy.
The more i think about university the more i get worry about my future. Here is my dilemma. In grade 10 my math teacher forced me to take math applied because he didn't think academic was the right class for me. At the time, i didn't know or care about the difference or the impact it can have on your life. Now i find that i can't apply to any programs that require math (adv func, calculus etc). This really closed a lot of doors because now i can only apply to arts programs which are useless most of the time. I applied to mostly poli science as that's the only path i see myself taking without math. The problem is that i know i will dislike poli science as i am more interested in business and i know i'm not the the poli sci type of guy. What do you guys think i should do.
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.
My top choice was McMaster and I got into Mac which is where I was planning on going, though my mom REALLY wants me to stay here. Her top reason is money, though I can come up with the money myself. I got into Ry and York as well and I'm still waiting on U of T. If I don't get into U of T, that leaves me w 3 options. I'm against staying here but it looks like I'm going to have to settle between Ry or York, if somehow I can't convince her. Please help? What should I do?
How do you pick which University to go to? I got accepted to all programs I applied for so it is not possible to rule out one that way. I am just looking for advice on how to choose. Or how others like me are making their decisions?
Hey everyone. I’m planning on attending the Schulich School of Business next year but I have some questions that I was hoping I could resolve to ensure that I make the right decision. I live in North York, about an hour from York, so I would have to commute everyday. I understand that by attending Schulich I wouldn’t be getting the traditional university experience, but would this put me at a disadvantage from making friends and attending events? I am a social person who is also hard working, so I really want to make the next four years of my university life memorable. Is there a very competitive atmosphere at Schulich or is everyone friendly? Can I enjoy myself while still commuting? Thanks
I'm planning on buying a boosted board to travel to York University, it is about a 45-minute ride from my house to the university. Is it worth it, and I know that the area around York is prone to criminal activity, so do you think I might get robbed. Thanks
I’ve been accepted to my top three schools all for psych— UTSC Co-op psych, ryerson honours and york honours BA. I’m currently favouring ryerson but I’m really not sure which school is the best. Does anyone have an opinion because I’m having a difficult time making a decision.
