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.

I'm a current student at Ryerson entering my 4th year in September, majoring in Professional Communication. I'm currently studying for the LSAT and hoping to go to law school after my undergrad. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty. I've also recently been hired as a Project and Communications Assistant for the Government of Ontario.
I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities + job search + how I got hired in the government
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! Ask me anything!
If you're looking to contact me personally, you can reach me at email@example.com
I'm just wondering if anyone could help me out. I'm currently debating between Western social science and Queens arts. As of right now, I think I would like to study psych but I'm going in with an open mind. I live in Kitchener Waterloo and so Western is much closer than queens but either way I'm staying in residence. I've been to both schools multiple times and I genuinely love them both. I know I will be happy with either school. As of now I'm definetly planning on pursuing further school after my undergrad, weather that be law school or something else, and so I know it doesn't matter that much where I go for my undergrad but it's just that I still have to make a decision and I just want to make sure I make the best one!
What I have so far:
-ranked high in Canada for social science
-London is a nice city
-good distance from home
-very familiar (both parents went to western, I know lots of people going, and people there)
-large somewhat spread out campus
-large student body
-Great reputation overall
-Kingston is a nice city
-campus is a little more compact
-smaller student body
-far from home
-West campus 15 minutes from main campus
-unsure of reputation for social science
-possibly less courses in social science? (not sure if it's true or not)
I am a third year student at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. I was aware a Bachelor's degree (Hons. BSc) in Biochemistry with a specialization of Pathology of Human Disease at the University of Western Ontario. My GPA was 3.91 when I applied for pharmacy school.
Please ask me anything in terms of pharmacy and/or pharmacy school.
Basically i'm just a regular confused little teenager going into 12th grade in September, meaning i'll be applying to universities. My strongest subjects are psychology, English and Biology. I wanted to study psychology at Ryerson or York to hopefully become a psychologist in the end. However, i know that's going to take around 11 years. Is it worth it? i'm very afraid of doing this, throwing 11 years into this and being unsuccessful in finding a job in the end. I'm open to all opinions please
IF YOU TAKE PSYCHOLOGY IN UNIVERSITY CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES ? what you like, what you don't like, if you regret it or not?, etc
Man, I feel hella sad I moved to a new school in a good area in Grade 10, tried to make friends And its grade 12, I'm graduating with no squad I actively chill with
I have a lot of people that talk to me at school, say hi to in the halls, want to work with me when it comes down to school stuff
But no squad to call my own. No friends that invite me out.
All of the people at my school have their groups made since grade 9, and even before since middle school. It's so hard to find a place where I just fit in man
I tried getting to be friends with one group of people, but despite all my friendliness and my efforts showing that I see them as friends outside of school, they ignore me and don't see me in the same way
I try to invite them out places, but they never come through. And when it comes down to their stuff (movies, birthdays etc) they don't invite me out
And now I'm graduating Grade 12, no real friends that I chill with outside of school I'm not an awkward person, I play basketball casually, but idk man
I'm normally a guy not fazed by sh*t like this, but when I saw my friend posting pics of his birthday party on his snapchat story, I got kinda sad :/
Hello guys! I hope everybody has had a great school year. Since it is the summer, I personally would be travelling to relax. I will be visiting Hong Kong sometime this summer and was wondering if anybody would like to do a meet-up? I don't know many people from Hong Kong so it'd be awesome if some of you guys could show me around!!
This may be a dumb question but i'm still in highschool trying to figure out this whole university situation, What does it mean to be majoring in one subject and minoring in another? Like majoring in psychology taking a minor in business? Is that possible? if so, How do you apply to do that?
*This forum is now open to everyone who got an acceptance from McGill, regardless of their field of choice. All students admitted to arts, literature, kinesiology, etc... are also welcome to post their acceptance. Good luck to those waiting for an acceptance! Post away!
Hello everybody from McGill!
I've seen a lot of forums related to acceptances from the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. So this forum is to give students that got an offer from McGill University for engineering and computer science to post their offer. This to get an understanding of the students that are applying to McGill for the class of 2020 for an engineering, computer science or any science discipline.
Please include in your post:
1. Grade 12 first semester average
2. Field of engineering that you've been accepted to
3. Other universities that you have applied to, and whether you got an offer from them.
4. Province of residence 5. Any scholarships offered 6. Month of acceptance
This will give us all a general idea of the competition base for the applicants of 2016. Please feel free to add anything else you would like to (in addition to the specified things above).
Also, as the title gives away, if anyone has any questions regarding McGill Engineering or Computer Science, this is a good place to get them answered.
Also, all non-engineering and non computer science applicants who are applying to a science major in McGill are welcome to post their offers or ask any questions regarding their program of interest!
Post away everyone! And good luck to those who are still waiting for an offer from McGill ;-)
I am a grade 11 student. As courses for our next year are due, I am very confused on what to take. I have no clue what I want to pursue in post secondary, and usually there are certain classes you must take to apply to certain post secondary programs. I like science, especially physics, and I LOVE math. I don't like English. I like being in an atmosphere with people, and I've always enjoyed the company of animals. I'm quite bossy, but I am usually one of the leaders in class activities. What are some careers that are growing, and will have lots of demand in 4-7 years? PLEASE HELP I NEED HELP PLEASE
i'm using the utm online timetable planner as I know which courses I am going to take first year as a life science student and the planner allows you to choose what times you'd like to take lectures, tutorials, practicals, etc. With high school back to back courses were no problem because the bell would ring and you had have say like 3-4min to get to your next class. With university classes, if I have a physics lecture from 10am-11am and then a chemistry lecture from 11am-12pm back to back is that a problem. Will I have time to make it to a class if they are on opposite sides of the campus? How do timetables work in university because with the courses i am taking almost all of them also include a tutorial and practical in addition to the lecture so there is really no choice but to have things back to back in my time table to avoid conflict.
