Calling all yconic members!
We know it’s hard to think about but it’s almost that time of year again. Tell us your top 3 “Must Haves” for back to school and you could be featured in yconic's newest article.

Example:              1. My trusty Herschel backpack
                               2. Red TOMS shoes
                               3. My lucky pen
                              ~Jon, first year Queen’s student in Economics

Rotman Commerce Acceptance Average
Hi, I am currently in Grade 11 and am most likely going to get an average between 80-85% in Grade 12. I have taken two Grade 12 courses already:
 International Business - 85% 
 Business Leadership - 82% 
I am thinking of taking English is summer school to try and bump up both my English mark along with my average. Do you think that an average between 80-85% with English in summer school is strong enough to be considered for Rotman Commerce? Thank you.

LMP/physiology/immunology
Hey Guys I am almost done with first year life sciences at UofT and  I need to apply for a POST. my interests are immunology/ physiology/ psychology and LMP. Now I would be really appreciate it if you could share your experiences/opinions about any of them, specialist or major (except LMP which has specialist only).( even if you only heard about them from your friends that would be helpful too.) my main goal is medicine and for the first year I am finishing with a very good GPA. I am willing to work hard but at the same time I know that some majors might make it very difficult for keeping the GPA 3.9+!
Also are there "debates" or "group projects" in any of them? And if yes which courses  I really like to avoide these. 
Thank U

First Year Nursing Student: ASK ME
Hi! I am currently finishing up my first year as a nursing student (in the middle of exams haha, just a few more to go). I am part of the Ryerson-Centennial-George Brown collaborative program and I attend the Centennial site, so you can definitely ask me about that. 

A post like this helped me before I entered, so I wanted to do the same. If you have any questions about first year in terms of courses, what to expect, school life, the campus, clinical, specific study tips etc. then I'll answer as best as I can!
LAURENTIAN 1ST YEAR: ANSWERING QUESTIONS
I'm almost done with my first year of Social Work at Laurentian. I was originally in Biochem. I have lots of friends in engineering & nursing. Ask away!
Top of my head: 
1. best res- University college or University of Sudbury
2. staff members (not necessarily teachers) are stupid af. They're not very helpful and don't know much about their own job. not very helpful 
3. you need a 70% min to get into any program except some like nursing, engineering, and maybe SPAD. pretty much accept anybody. takes in any transfer applicants.
4. If you like privacy or you're older- choose West Res. SSR is b.s. 
5. choose one of the lowest meal plans- lasts longer than you think. 
6. Teachers are alright. Course load is alright--science=more work 
7. Sudbury is a cute town. It's not all sketchy. Lots of lakes and forests. I'm from Toronto so it was a huge change. Don't rely on google images--actually go see the city! 
8. medical school (NOSM) gives preference to their own--they prefer people from smaller town (mainly Northern Ontario).
9. lots of people from Toronto--so not hard to find a ride--so you can go home every weekend if you want.
10. no football team=no homecoming! there are quite a few sports teams.

U of T - Ask me anything!
Hello,

I'm a student at the University of Toronto, planning to pursue either an Economics or Economics and Mathematics Specialist.

I understand that the University of Toronto is a popular destination for many Secondary School graduates, so I thought I'd offer up my expertise and answer any questions you may have.

I can help dispel (or confirm!) scary rumours, answer questions about the application process, or whatever is on your mind. My specific knowledge is of Maths and Economics, so I can help applicants planning to enter that field.

*Note: There has been some interest in the sale of my ECO100Y notes among entering students. I do have prepared a large document including all relevant graphs, equations and definitions - complete with explanations and descriptions. If you're interested, feel free to send me a message on the forums.

**Note: Please do not use this thread to ask whether your entrance grades are good enough. I don't really know, and don't pretend to.

York University/Seneca/Georgian Nursing ASK ME?
Hey,
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:

University of Toronto Engineering Student - Ask Me Anything
Hey everyone! I started this thread to answer questions from the potential class of 2017, and to keep all of the University of Toronto-related items in one place.

I'm a first year engineering student at the University of Toronto and I'm currently studying electrical/computer engineering (same courses as TrackOne). I commute to school every day, so I can't really answer that many questions about residence, but I'm sure others will be willing to chime in on that.

Without further ado, ask away!

How did you decide what program you are doing in university
Heyy people, I am a going-to-gr12 public hs kid wondering what to do in life.

A brief info about myslf:
1. Live in GTA
2. Like interior designs, fascinated by tech, love to eat, outgoing, enjoy flying and driving
3. my favourite YouTube video is "A Day Made of Glass"
4. i studied because of others, not for myself (aka I got good grades but I didnt enjoy them)
5. my ultimate goal is to retire asap (at 45) [I know it may not be feasible, but still...)

Here's my gr11 grades
English 83
Functions 99
Accounting  94
Marketing  96
Chemistry 86
Physics 82
Biology 90
Broadcasting 87

And my only grade 12 grade is physics (completed in summer school) - 94

As above, how did you decide what you are going to do in the future??? Like how do you figure out what you want??
I like interior designs, tech, food, sports, but the thing is - i can't see myself in the future
I dont know what to do? Despite trying to get good grades and apply every single university in ontario....
I really need some advice. Please give me some advice :) :) :)

Thank you very much
