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!

I am a grade 12 student and I've applied to the following universities: U of t, Waterloo, York, and Ryerson. The programs that I have applied to are engineering, finance, and Mathematical and Physical sciences and my marks for the first OUAC transmission were:
Advanced functions 95
Data management 97
health and nutrition 94
I am taking English in private school and Chemistry in night school, and I haven't received a mark for English and Chemistry, but I will probably get a 90+. I was wondering if taking English and Chemistry outside of my day school is going to affect my admission?
I’m here to ask some things about getting into nursing but I will give a little bit of background information on myself. Student services at my school don’t help the grads much and my parents are immigrants and don’t know very much in terms with helping me. I want to go for nursing but I have my two worst courses this semester (data & Chem) I have approx 60% in these courses but I am a good student I am an honour roll student. I have a feeling when the acceptances come out I will have hopefully a 85% average. Before I get the rant on how I will have issues in uni just spare me the negativity because I am stressing I am a very good hands on learner which will compensate for the theory aspect although I am mediocre in bio (80%) I just need to know what I can do to be accepted I am looking into applying to brock, Ottawa, York, Trent (maybe some collabs) not sure 100% yet is there any advice to stand out and hopefully get accepted or will I just become a rejected failure /: thanks in advance to the people who pull through with some advice
I am mature student who has applied for the program. I was asked for a letter of extenuating circumstance and a resume as supporting document.
I have a 3 year BA Geography and Professional Certificate in Management. I originally started in Bachelor of Admin Studies and had performed poorly so switched to Geography. I had a C GPA but the requirement is a C+. Plus I have to repeat some ADMS courses. Thats why they asked for the letter.
Now I have been out of school for several years and been working full time. What are my chances of getting in the program?
I'm currently a Ontario student in grade 12 and I'm really confused about early admissions. My grade 11 average was a 86% for 8 courses but my top six is 90%. However my top six don't include two of my pre recs for engineering. My guidance counsellor even told me those marks were too low for early admission but I've seen people already get accepted this early with about the same averages. Are my marks too low? Especially cause i want to get into engineering or architecture. And when applying for early admissions do they take your six courses and do they have to be your pre recs or can they just be your top six?
So I've been admitted to York's Bcomm and Utm's Management and i was wondering which program s the best if grad school is in mind? I don't know which program would be easier to get a higher gpa in? Anyone in the program let me know.
My top 6 average is gonna be 90.5-91. My final in advanced functions is 85 and I think my AIF and AFMAA were pretty average. What do you guys think my chances of getting accepted are? Thanks in advance!!

I will have a 92.5 average with an 84 in English and 85 in Advanced Functions but a mark in the 90s for Calculus. I am the Finance Coordinator of Green Initiative Canada, Treasurer of Environmental Council, Delegate to Model United Nations, Peer Tutor, President of the Me to We Club, and have been a member of the Kumon Program for 11 years. Awards include A national award (ranked 1 out of 332 students throughout Canada for an Advanced Achievement in Kumon Mathematics), Outstanding Contribution to the Enviro Council, and French Honour Roll and Regular Honour Roll, and Completed the Kumon Math and Reading Award (first person at my centre to do so!) How do my chances look? Please be honest, Waterloo is my first choice, btw I have not done the AFMAA yet I did not apply for early acceptance!! And no subjects were done outside of day school! And please reply without being rude lol don't think it's that hard! EDIT: I WROTE THAT I RECEIVED A 64 IN ENGLISH PREVIOUSLY, WHEN I REALLY GOT AN 84 MY BAD!!!
can someone who is enrolled in the financial business economics program at york university, give me some insight on the program. Im interested in investment banking and if this program is any good, and how much the program differ from BBA OR Commerce. I know that it is more economic based but other then that. How likely can i get internships and also what are the chances of getting a good placement after this degree. Overall would you recommend it, views/ points, insight details related to the program.
I was accepted to the management program at utm and am still waiting for the business program at York university but I'm not sure which school is better to go to in terms of both school life and degree: BBA at UTM or BCOM at York, does anyone have any experience or suggestions?? Also, I know York changed their program degree from a BAS to BCOM so I was wondering, where or which campus would this program be within the university?
hi guys!! i noticed for york bba you need references for each activity (ec) but is that absolutely mandatory? is the purpose of references mainly to validate that you actually did the ec or will they ask what u did in it and etc? because for some of my clubs, im not close with the club teacher supervisors (like theyre there to supervise but they dont actually talk to members) and some i havent talked to at all so its weird to ask them to be a reference? i also want to talk about my business startup but that was something i did on my own so i dont actually have anyone to use as a reference!! does anyone have a similar problem? any help would be greatly appreciated!!! thxx
I failed Advanced Functions in summer school and I am repeating it in day school now. I want to apply to York Commerce, When I talked to admissions office they said that they take the higher mark of the two. But I wanted to know would It negatively impact my admission. Although I have a higher average with my second attempt,would having a repeated course make me less eligible? Anyone with personal experience on his?
