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 3rd year student at Ryerson, majoring in professional communications and minoring in law and marketing. 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 can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! AMA!
I'm not sure if anyone is interested but I am currently enrolled in the one year HBSW at Lakehead University. You need to have a degree already before you can apply and be accepted but it's a quick way to get your BSW. It's not a flawless program but it's faster than the two years that most schools of Social Work require. If anyone is considering it ever in the future and have any questions I'd be happy to help.
It's easier to get in than other universities. I didn't have a high GPA but I had volunteering and work experience which got me accepted. Their criteria is 40% GPA, 30% Volunteer and Work Experience, 20% references, and 10% personal exam.
If you attend the Orillia campus (hour and a half north of Toronto) you can go to your home town for your practicum (January until June). It's a condensed program going from July to June of the next year with a three week break in August and most of December off. The Thunder Bay campus requires you to be in TB for the whole 12 months.
So far people have been having issues with the practicum component since we are supposed to start in the next couple weeks but some students have not heard anything about a possible placement yet, that is the biggest complaint.
If anyone wants any more information I'm happy to help.
I want to transfer to UBC sauder from sfu arts and would really like some helpful tips!!! This thread is also for other people wanting to transfer. I'm want to get in for second year!! Thanks in advance!
If you have any questions on the University of Waterloo's Conditional Admission to Pharmacy (CAP) program this year and are interested in applying, dont hesitate to ask them here! I'll try to answer them as best as I can!
For those of you who dont know what CAP is, it's basically a program designed for students who wish to pursue a field in pharmacy in the future. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE HERE: https://uwaterloo.ca/pharmacy/future-students/conditional-admission-pharmacy-cap ALSO be sure to check out the FAQ section too because they usually cover a lot of your questions there.
NOTE: Applications will be available starting October 9, 2015
Hey, I'm wondering since I heard that York's Administrative Studies program is very similar curriculum wise to Schulich, whether a grad of the Admin Studies program, like a graduate of Schulich, would directly be able to jump to the CPA Pep program rather than the more lengthy CPA Prep program
Also, please DO NOT post answers to the supplementary application as per rules and regulations. As mentioned on the application: "Posting of your answers to third party websites is not permitted and may result in removal from the applicant pool or withdrawal of an offer of admission."
I am pretty sure there are not that many students here thinking/discussing about York-Seneca-Georgian's nursing program. But for the few lost souls out there who have a question, feel free to ask me :)
I have been answering most questions via Facebook as admin of the collaborative nursing group.
But if you would like to personally ask me anything about it, feel free to either post or message me here or find me on Facebook (Rhey De Castro). Please mention that you saw this post on StudentAwards.
Otherwise enjoy your Summer! Trust me nursing is one long road! :cyclops:
A small number of high school students from Canada goes abroad every year to medical school in the UK around 80 or so each year. Around 300 (mostly people who have finished undergrad) go to Ireland each year. Many of them want to return to Canada, go to the US or stay in the UK. Depending on your route, you might want to know more about the difficulties you might face including residency, completing, studying in a different country.
I've done a lot of research into residencies, the difficulties an IMG will face etc etc. So if you have questions, PM me or post on this topic.
Edit: I no longer am a medical student in the UK. I did finish three years in the UK but am now attending medical school in Canada. I am still available for advice regarding the UK however.
The best advice is to remove all distractions from your study space. Provide yourself with a quiet place where you can really focus on you're work . This will really help make sure that you get the most out of the time you spend studying.
On of the best study tip I can share is be prepared. Keeping a calendar of all your assignments and tests help me stay organized and prepared for those big test and exams. By breaking my study times down so I study a little of each thing every night helps me avoid the night before panic and helps me stay on top of things!
I got accepted into Admin Studies at York a couple of weeks ago. But I'm afraid that due to my poor marks, particularly in math, I won't be able to get into my program of choice (Utsc Management or Waterloo AFM). I'm wondering if I attend York U for my first year, will I be able to transfer my credits to another school, say UTSC for example?
I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:
1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year

My name is Bo and I'm a second-year Software Engineering student and Engineering Ambassador at the University of Waterloo. I know many of you are keen to study at Waterloo. I hope this thread will be very useful for you guys. I also started my blog: https://bopeng.io to write about my first year experience. I'll also be writing about the University admission process, and specifically for Engineering programs!
List any questions below! I will try my best to respond to your questions daily.

I am currently in Gr.11 of High School and am looking at potential Universities. I am currently in the IB Program and doing pretty well, however I would like to take two degrees at once to get myself into the labor market ASAP before demand for the profession I want to pursue dies down.
Would it be possible to take Rotman's Commerce (UofT) & a program at Seneca College at the same time? If not, Would it be possible to do it with a Political Science Program at U of T?
Looking forward to responses, Thanks.
My ultimate study tip is to read and process the material and then to write it out in your own words. This helps you retain what you are studying to be most effective. Review all of your own notes instead of the text book so it sticks better.
