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.

Even if I won't be living on residence I have to apply to one of the colleges but whats the purpose of it? what good does it do? what are the benefits? I heard that some are more prestige than others because of the curriculum or something.
I am a grade 12 student currently studying abroad the world with Blyth Global High School in grade 12. I am interested in the prestigious Ontario business programs such as Queen's Commerce, York Schulich, and Laurier Lazaridis but I have no idea if my grades and ecs are good enough. I have a 83 in English, 86 in data management, 90 in advanced functions, 96 in calculus *midterm, and 94 in The Elite Athlete (IDC4U) *midterm. I am doing four more courses in semester two including World Issues, Challenge and change, Kinesiology, and a redo of English. I hope to get a better mark in my redo of English and not have my data included in my top 6. My ecs are captaincy throughout high school rugby, playing provincial rugby, club rugby, wrestling for a top Toronto club, student representative for number one ranked private school in Canada (Blyth Academy), did community service in a Cambodian village with handicapped and sick orphans (planted crops, built fencing and helped construct a well), help paint a school in Laos for under privileged children, multiple wrestling achievements and other music awards. I have never been very good at school as my transcript is full of 0s-60s so early acceptance is not an option but this year I really am trying to turn my life around. I want to know if my ecs are good enough and what averages I should go for with the schools named above as well as any suggestions for other schools. I do not have a guidance counselor travelling with me on my studies and I feel like i'm in this by myself. I also do not understand how applications even work, if anyone can help me out it would be amazing.
Hi guys I'm in grade 12 and I've just applied to Rotman commerce, UTM commerce, and Schulich bba. I'm a bit confused on Rotmans supplementary application. Apparently for the last few years Rotman required you to create and upload a creative video about yourself, but I've just got an email from rotman for the sup app and it only mentions a 120 second video response to a question. Is that the same thing as what I've been hearing about or is it something different? Also, what do you think my chances are of getting an offer in each program with the following averages so far (98.5 adv functions, 89 English, 95 business management, 95 religion mixed level) I've got calculus, international business, economics and communications technology next semester. I have part time work experience as a service clerk, part of a global issues team (top 20 grade 12s selected), tutoring..etc. thanks! Also, if anyone knows, what written and video questions should I expect for Schulich and Rotman? Also I'm pretty sure UTM commerce doesn't require a sub app right?
I would like to pursue a career in business (finance, accounting, etc) and have been accepted into various programs that all offer something a bit different. I would like to pursue a MBA or MFE after undergrad.
Which of these programs do you recommend to prep me for grad school and a fruitful career? Does prestige matter?
I have been admitted to both Schulich and McGill. I am unable to choose between the two. Mcgill is giving me a good scholarship as well. Could anyone provide some pointers, which could help me make this important c.
So I'm going for the psych BA at western and also wanna go for their HBA program. The lady I talked to at their preview day told me that about 60% of the people that go into the HBA program are people who get AEO status. I really wanna get AEO so I wanted to know if anyone knows anything about how to improve my application. So for I have about a years worth of work experience, 3 years of volunteering, 4 years on my swim team, a year on my schools DECA team and going to provincials, and volunteering for a couple weeks abroad, in Asia. I know my final average will fall somewhere between 85% - 92%, if all goes well. Are there any other things I put on my application that would edge me out from the competition, cuz I know it's a very competitive program. Thanks, would really appreciate the help!!
My undergraduate degree is in microbiology. However I intend to get into healthcare careers. So I need masters in Management or health care or an MBA. So suggest me. I intend to live in Canada after graduation and eventually apply for PR.
I am an International student from Bangladesh. I have a BSc in Microbiology. I intend to do MBA from Canada and join management career in health care management. Which MBA would be the best value for money and good job prospect? I intend to settle in Ontario, specially Toronto. I am not expecting a huge salary at entry level but a decent one. I have also heard of Laurier Co-Op which may help me get into networking. I do not know for sure. I cant find Laurier in any kind of ranking. As I am an international applicant may be finding a job after graduation is hard. Also some people suggested me that it is better to do Masters in Management in top schools rather than MBA because it will cost less. Need suggestions based on personal experiences. thank you.
Hey! This is my first post on here, just letting you know in advance. I'm currently in grade 12 and i'm interested in accounting. My home school would be Brock for their 5 year co-op program. I can afford to go to residence, but at the same time that's a lot of money. I'm also interested at U of T, Waterloo, and York. I'm open to moving away but I'm unsure as to if it would be worth it compared to going to Brock. From what i've heard Brock doesn't get much acclaim or B4 students... My marks are good as i've done a handful of Gr.12 courses last year: 97 functions, 98 english, 98 law, 95 physics, 98 chemistry, 97 calculus and I have pretty decent EC's. Moral of the story: where should I go for accounting next year and WHY?
If i do a coop program for undergrad which will lead into some courses for the fall of my 5th year, am I able to do the gmat during that fall and begin graduate school next school year or will I have to wait till I am finished completely and then write the gmat?
Hello everyone as the title stated, I would like to have a new laptop for y post secondary education. I have been browsing different models and puzzled by all the options. Right now, I am using ASUS S56C... and it only lasts for 4 hours (without internal browsing) ....
So here's some specs I would like to have in my future laptop, and hopefully tech gurus can help me :)
1. Long lasting battery (at least 6 hours, the more the better , if possible)
2. Graphic Card
3. Intel i7
5. DVD drive
6. Window Operation (I still don't know how to use Apple laptops)
7. At least 8 GB memory
8. 3+ USB Ports and 1+ USB-C port(s)
9. 256 GB+ Hard drive
10. 17" screen
2. Good sound system
3. Glowing keyboard (cuz I think this is cool but it's not necessary at all)
1. Normal tasks (PowerPoint, Word, Publisher, Excel)
2. Video editing (Premiere Pro - it freezes when I use my current laptop)
4. Tons of internet browsing at the same time (can up to 100 pages at the same time)
My grade 11 average is 93,
92 in math
92 in chem
91 in english
95 in physics
95 in social
As for grade 12
I have 81 in pre calc
81 in english
Physics, Calculus and Chem are yet to be determined because I dropped the courses in highschool considering that the admissions office only looks at first grade attempts for any course
Now I am going to do these courses officially for the first time elsewhere in the fall, which is when I would expect to apply to the U of T through Ouac.
Do I still have a shot at this program?
I also would like to ask, is Laurentian University's Bachelor's of Mining Engineering a good program as well? I am asking this mainly because it would be my second choice to the U of T, but it could arguably contend to be my first depending on some of the answers I receive.
