My main point, and I cannot emphasize this enough, is to be sure to have an alternate career path ready. Only a small percentage of pre-med or pre-law students actually graduate into medical or law school. The acceptance rate is only around 10%, while the attrition rate is very high (75-80%). And unless you make it through med or law school, that biochemistry or polisci degree isn't going to do you much good.
I took functions in grade 10 this year but ended up doing bad and I ended with a 78. I want to get into Ivey,Schulich,Rotman, etc but will universities see this mark? If yes should I redo it in summer school? Please respond asap as summer school starts tomorrow.
I've been looking faarrr and wide for an answer, on like android forums & whatnot, but can't seem to find one... so gonna try my luck in a student forum! lol. you guys have technological knowledge, so why not give it a try?
so many humble thanks in advance if you read this and you've got an answer. I'm desperate. and my mom's gonna whoop my ass if I try to get a new one (currently saving all the meager $$ I got for uni tuition, ain't gonna spend it on a phone).
I have a TTC metro pass (it's a card for public transit in Toronto) and like credit cards or library cards or whatever, it has a magnetic strip on the back.
Now i've been keeping it in the back of my phone case for convenience. The magnetic strip side is facing the back of the phone.
I've been keeping it like this for the whole month now, and just recently a strip of surface area on the phone screen doesn't seem to be working. Can't press anything in that expanse of phone screen, particularly the middle. I downloaded a screen touch test app, and the whole screen is responsive except for that strip down the phone screen.
Initially I chalked it up to the fact that I updated this 2 year old nexus 4 to android 5 (lollipop) some time ago and it was just glitching, but when I took the metro pass out, I realised that the strip of irritatingly unresponsive phone surface was also suspiciously the same area where the magnetic strip on the card is placed.
So naturally, I attempted googling this foolishness up, but to no avail.
could anyone let me know if it's possible for a magnetic strip to affect a phone's touch screen? just so I can explain to my mother as she writes me out of the family will for wasting money? thanks guys, just been tearing my hair out for the past couple of hours.
I seriously need help peoples!! I can't decide whether or not I want to take Computer Science (I know it more by Info Tech, but whatev) next year, or if I should instead take a grade 11 course. Next year, I'll be going into grade 10, and in Info Tech grade 10, you learn Python (a programming language), which I am planning to learn by myself anyway, this summer (or will try to). I like Info Tech a lot, but I won't be going into the technology field after high school. I'm planning on going into the sciences.
In grade 10, I am taking Physics 11, but if I choose to not take Info Tech, then I was thinking of taking another Science course, most likely Chemistry 11 or Biology 11. I should probably also mention that I'll be applying for the IB Diploma Program for grade 11. I want my marks and courses to look impressive on my application. (The school that I will apply to for the IB Diploma, does not have the process where a Pre-IB student is able to go into IB. There, anyone can apply, and they do not have a Pre-IB Program.)
So, what should I do? Please help, because if I decide to change my course, then I have to talk to the counsellor a.s.a.p. I appreciate the help in advance!
Entering grade 12 this fall and will be taking online courses and ILC courses throughout this summer and the school year.
Should I save up and buy a laptop this summer (as im doing courses during both months and will be out most of the time, summer school, library, vacation), buy it semester 1 grade 12 (could use during class, lunch), or just wait till next summer (for post secondary) ?
Also, do you guys have any recommendations? Budget is around $2000, and will be studying either business or nursing. Thanks !
Well, I'll be going to grade 10 next year, and I'll be taking Physics 11. Like the title stated, how hard is Physics 11? So far, I find the resistance, current, and voltage calculation stuff easy. What do you learn in Physics 11?
Stop making excuses. Stop being hateful. Stop being rude. Stop using words for the sake of hurting others. Stop being distasteful. Stop looking down on others. Stop generalizing a group based off of the traits displayed by the specific. Stop spreading negativity. Stop giving up. Stop letting obstacles hold you back. Stop acting on that bad attitude. Stop disobeying your parents. Stop being spiteful. Stop self-hating. Stop being discontent. Stop being irritated. Stop being mean.
STOP HOLDING YOURSELF BACK.
Start showering. Start holding hands. Start giggling. Start goal-setting. Start self-improvement. Start knowing your self-worth. Start knowing your limits. Start being polite. Start trusting. Start loving. Start caring. Start loving yourself. Start loving what you see in the mirror. Start being healthy. Start your work. Start good habits. Start smiling.
Start appreciating your life and what you have because everything is temporary and everything is worth giving your all. Whatever comes at you, good or bad, is worth learning from. Keep your head up and your eyes sparkling, because there is so much more than the frame of emotions and attitudes you are feeling RIGHT NOW.
You have the potential to make your mark on this world. And most of us fail to make the most of it. Please do everyone a favor, including yourself, and start working hard and start living life.
Your grades do not reflect your intelligence. Your looks do not reflect your beauty. Your high school life does not reflect your future.
When you encounter failure, first, dissociate yourself from all the negative emotions. Part of this is realizing that there are other factors at play. For instance, if you failed a test, realize it isn't because you're dumb, but other factors like time management or study habits. Every time we experience something negative, we attribute it immediately to our weaknesses. "Oh I'm dumb" or "Oh I'm ugly" when in reality, it's usually not that. Stop beating yourself up, stop feeling sorry for yourself, and look for the real reasons. Learn to grow as a person, not avoid who you are.
So, look at yourself in the mirror and acknowledge your unique beauty. Look at other people and admire their beauty also, because they are a treasure trove of things yet to be discovered. Appreciate the good and the bad, because a second later, things will never be as it once was. Learn to love things and appreciate their natural beauty. A few years down the road, you'll look back and realize everything grew old.
kay i really messed up and let my mom do my residence application for me while i was away. she put me in the village double residence which i heard has really bad sleeping arrangements and an alcohol free zone -_- anything at all i can do to fix this or am i fk'd
Hi, I'm a first year student at University of Waterloo, and I'm just wondering if mkv is a good residence. I know that it's hard to get in mkv, but I still just wanted to know the pros and cons of it. Is it accesible to other buildings and places? pros? cons? social life? Is it any better than the other suite style residences? Is there any restaurants or cafeteria next to it? Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you :)
I have a 90 in 11M math, and am taking 11U next semester. I have a 90 in 11M with very small effort but I don't think 11U is anything like it. The reason I took mixed in the first place was cus in gr 10 academic i worked day and night..equations were stuck in my head trying to solve them in bed and only got 60!
