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.
While googling, I noticed not all OUAC programs I applied to will have a rejection or offer status (i.e. some will remain blank) and it's probably more reliable to go with email correspondences for rejections. For offers, I believe it takes 1-2 days for the OUAC portal to get the updated information.
So now I have a few questions on the back of my head:
1. Besides universities that only offer acceptance to only one program, will all other programs be courteous enough to provide an offer or rejection email/mail correspondence?
2. Because we can apply to entrance bursaries and scholarships even before receiving an offer of acceptance, when does it make sense to accept an offer way ahead of time? This isn't anything like for Med School or Ivey but more a Math/Business or Business programs.
I don't want to accept an offer only to rescind it towards the end because that can screw up someone else's spot.
I recently got accepted to the BBA program at Schulich school of business at York university, but I live in Brampton on bovaird. What is the fastest way I can get from the pertosa bovaird intersection to Schulich? And least expensive!! I cannot drive yet by the way so that is not currently an option and in addition I can't afford a car right now either. Apparently the zum 501 is a direct bus to York but that's from downtown Brampton and I'm not sure how long that takes and how expensive it is. Please let me know if anyone has an idea!!
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?
ask me anything about queen's, business school, university life, your wildest concerns, etc. there are no stupid questions lmao, i remember going on yconic searching for some really silly stuff while applying for business schools. it's lit
- third year, currently on winter exchange (lot of fun!)
- interning this summer at a telecom (think Telus/Bell/Shaw/Rogers)
- applied as a chancellor's scholar outside of ontario
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.
planning to move to laurier this year. got accepted into bba, and was wondering what the people were like
a lot of people have said it's a close knit community which im looking forward to experiencing
1- uni life
are the people totally party freaks or are they academically oriented too? laurBBA is very highly talked about so i was wondering whether the people were serious in that aspect of academics in this uni
hi, im currently a grade 12 student getting mid 80's and 90's so far except for math which is below 50 :(. I know there are better business schools and programs then these but im not ready to go to a business school that is hard and where i will be emotionally drained and stressed out. I want go to a business school where i can manage my grades. I am going through enough stress in grade 12 already and i dont want to go through it again. I know ryerson has no co-op but what about york's commerce ..does it have it if your not going to schullich and how is brock. I am just confused about if i should i go to a university that has no co-op or not
Hi guys, I'm torn between going to either BMOS with AEO or Laurier BBA/Compsci. I've heard lots of good things about both programs but I'm not sure how good the DD is with CS through Laurier. The advantages of Western AEO include creating an amazing network while Laurier CS/BBA has co-op.
Hi. I got accepted at Laurier, Ryerson, UTM, Brock and Mcmaster for their accounting programs. My goal is to become a CPA in the future. I am very confused atm. My top two choices are Laurier or Ryerson.
I am a first-year student at Brock University studying BBE with Co-op. I thought of transferring to BBA to Goodman School of Business where I guess I will not get the Co-op from the Transfer. Should I stay with BBE co-op or transfer to BBA?
Sup guys, well I’ve just checked on some Canada universities ranking websites and i realized that Laurier is quite not popular and has low rank compared to some others university. Can u guys give me some reasons behind this?
I'm a grade 12 student who is expecting acceptances to both of my top programs - Laurier BBA and Western Ivey AEO. Based on my strengths in both verbal and linguistic communication, I've always wanted to enter the corporate world through marketing. My family is not rich by any means, but we are also not struggling. Is the incredibly high tuition for Ivey worth it even if I'm likely not going to enter consulting/investment banking, or am I better off at a school like Laurier where I can get good opportunities for literally half the price? If I went to Laurier, I'd likely graduate debt-free and with co-op, gain the experience to get a job right away. However, I'm also aware of Ivey's prestigious status and I know there are a lot of benefits that come from simply being an Ivey student. Any advice is appreciated, thanks :)
