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.

So I will be applying to various universities across Canada, and hoping to pursue a career in business. I hope to dual major in both computer science and business hopefully, but in regards to the business aspect, why do so many people say Queen's Commerce or bust?? I will be applying there for next year, but I have a few questions about it's overall image...
Why is it Queen's commerce or bust if
- you have to compete with everyone in the program for internships, a.k.a very hard to get experience with no co-op program
- paying pretty much double for a regular commerce degree?
- you are competing for business related jobs with almost everyone in Ontario, even if prestige of Queen's gets you ahead by a bit?
- Other schools offer equal or even better education, as well as have co-op to help gain experience and become more employable?
How difficult is the UW/WLU CS DD if I pick Laurier as my home school? (in terms of work load and content)
I understand that the co-op at Laurier has more business placements but is it impossible to get a computer science co-op? I prefer computer science over business, although I do not want to pick Waterloo as my home school. This is because I visited both schools and I absolutely hated the environment at Waterloo but I loved the Laurier atmosphere.
I am taking Advanced Functions and Data Management but not Calculus and Vectors. Does this decrease my chances of getting into Laurier BBA? Do they consider students who have taken Calculus over those who have not?
I understand universities reserve the right to only look at the first marks but some schools will take the higher of the two. Does anyone knoq if business programs like Queens commerce, Schulich, Ivey, and Rotman allow repeated grade 12 courses for admission ?
my top 3 are prestige business schools and my 4th and 5th are my backups. I have a 90% average and if I don't get into any of my top 3 will my 4th and 5th choice reject me because I put their ranking so low?
Around this time last year I was stressing out trying to pick a school and get the marks for the programs. Despite being only a few weeks into the program, I hope I can still help answer any questions or clarifications!
I have about 91 average so far . I am looking to apply to Business programs that are known for startup and entrepreneurship. My goal is to attend Uni and then start my own business after graduation. I have looked at programs like Schulich, Ivey, Rotman, Queens, etc but these programs are more focused on Accounting and Finance. I don't like the idea of paying huge tution just to attend top business schools (queens, ivey). Can anyone suggest any school that offers good opportunity for startup and well known for their entrepreneurship program .
Greeting and salutations my friends. My average is currently hovering around a 66-69%. However my projected gym mark is around a 79% next semester. I'm currently weighing my options. My first choice is Mcmaster health sciences, my second is UofT Rotman Commerce, and my safe choice is Computer Science at Waterloo however I want to keep my pride. I have strong and Diverse EC's including Professional Igloo builder, orgame club captain, Exchange student in Mongolia (Got a picture with the President), I resell supreme hoodies on the lowww, Laser tag enthusiast (Number 1 player in Mongolia) ,Night school science award out of my class of 4, and finally recently completed driving school.
Thank you all for time, hope to see you around Mcmaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I figured y'all grade 12 students should have the chance to ask any questions about universities. I'm a registered boother for the University and I can definitely answer any questions about residence life and living alone in general, also feel free to ask about course work/load and basically any question that pops up in your mind! I was in your position last year and I definitely understand the stress that comes with grade 12, just know that it will all work out :)
I'm currently a grade 11 student and I want to apply to a Business school, I was told that they also take your Extra Curriculars into consideration. I am confident that I will get good marks next year but I don't know what EC's to join. Can someone please tell me which EC's I should join that are going to help me get accepted?
Hey, I was wondering if an accounting degree would solely lead to accounting roles in the future, or case specific for Brock if there are students who transitioned into investment banking from the Brock accounting undergrad/masters after receiving CPA.
I did read that one of the community members was offered an IB position at RBC while completing an undergrad at accounting co-op Goodmans.

- Deca (Grade 11 & 12)
- Social Justice Club
- Stem Olympics (Helped organize event in school)
- Science Olympics Club
- Co-founded a filmmaking company (Record videos for individuals)
Please Help: I'm very concerned about my extra-curriculars cause I have no actual leadership title. I have for sure shown leadership in many of these clubs and teams but I was never an executive or captain for any. Could someone please let me know the chances of getting in to the BBA program based on my average and EC's, thank you. Also, any comments on what I can do before applying to help increase my chances is appreciated!
Right now Im currently interest in Lauriers BBA, Brock's BBA, and Ryersons Bcomm (either accounting or management). I just wanna know if these school are good. Right now im only limiting myself to 3. I am retaking a functions course next semester cause my current mark in it isn't amazing, so I cant take calc pretty much, that why I ruled out Queens, rotman, and ivey etc. Also I've heard that laurier offers BA economics and accounting in you dont get into BBA but I'll probably be going to brock or ryerson if I dont get Lauier bba. If anyone is in these current programs, could you help me with knowing which is the best.
