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.

I know this might be a bit too early for this but I was wondering if universities would care if I did ENG4U in the summer. My friends keep telling me stuff like “they’ll decline your application” or “summer school is a bad choice!” I know that Waterloo is the only university that cares but would any other university care about summer school?? How about summer school in a private school?
So I'm a chemical engineering student at Ryerson and I want to pursue a career in petroleum engineering post graduation. I was just wondering if anyone has information on how easy it is to get co op at a petroleum engineering firm if you're a Ryerson chemical engineering student looking for co op. Any info will help, thanks!
I applied at the faculty of arts and sciences in psychology a week ago almost. the competitive admission average for arts stated low 70s to low 80s but I still did not get accepted into arts with early admission. My friends have already received their offers. Also, does the admission average go down after early admission, is there a chance I can still get into arts or sciences in psychology?
I am a grade 12 student looking to apply for U of T's engineering (specifically chemical) program this year. I looked online and saw that a student profile has to be submitted and part of that is the video interview. I was wondering what kind of questions they ask and how much they weigh the interview. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
I have basically all sciences second semester of grade 12 and Im planning to go into engineering. If I have all sciences second semester and only have AF this semester, how will the universities accept? Will they use some grade 11 marks, I.e. Grade 11 Chem mark because grade 12 Chem is second semester
Hey, I'm currently in grade 11 and going into my last year of high school so I've naturally started to explore my university options. I know I want to be a chemical engineer in industry and not so much research but I was just wondering about the comparison and contrast between Waterloo and MIT seeing as there wasn't really anything I could find on it.
Could anybody tell me if it would even be worth to go for MIT? In terms of tuition costs, I don't live in Toronto so either way it would definitely cost quite a bit. Also, are there any other university options that are worth considering?
Hi there, I am a grade 12 student graduating this year, however, over time my interests transitioned from business to engineering, and I now require 3 Prerequisite courses that I initially did not. In order to apply for engineering programs at Universities, I need to obtain the following courses:
-Physics 12 U
-Chemistry 12 U
-Calculus 12 U
Unfortunately, I did not take any sciences in grade 11 as I was "set" on working in business, however, that ideology has changed and I now face a new obstacle.
I was wondering if there are any college courses/programs that will provide me with equivalent courses to the one's I listed above. If not, I may just have to take the courses online or at a local private school. Please, if anyone has anything to share, good or bad, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you for listening
Hi, I am currently in grade 11, and I'm confused on which engineering program I should apply to. The three engineering programs that I find interesting are Chemical, Civil, and Nuclear Engineering, I am still confused because there is a lot of false and misguiding information out there.
My grade 11 average is a flat 90%, and I'm confident in myself that in grade 12 I can get a 92-94% average. The universities that I am interested in are Waterloo, UofT, Western, Queens, McMaster, and UOIT.
Can someone please help me decide which engineering programs I should focus on depending on my interests which are math, chemistry, and physics, and also economic factors such as job outlook.
I got accepted by university of Waterloo-medicinal chemistry program and university of Ottawa-chemical engineering. I am interested in chemical engineering but I don’t know UO if it is a good engineering school. I am thinking about switching to engineering in UW for the first year. Should I give it a try or go to UO chemical engineering?
Hi there, I applied to Western Engineering and my grade 12 marks are as follows:
English 85% (final)
Advanced Functions 82% (final)
Physics 90% (final)
Chemistry 90% (final)
Data Management 93% (final)
Calculus 88% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
Biology 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
History 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
English, Advanced Functions, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus are all prerequisites, and assuming 94% in either Biology or History is my next highest mark for my 6th grade 12 course, (my top 6 including the prerequisites becomes an average of 88.17%)
Does anyone know the cut-off for engineering at UWO last year?
Will I be accepted? (I could not fill out the CONNECT profile for engineering because I applied after the deadline for this optional form). Will it hurt my chances?
If anyone has been accepted already, what was your average and break down of marks by course?
My name is James, and I've been accepted into chemical engineering at Waterloo. I am currently trying to decide where to go, I've been accepted into Waterloo chemical eng, U of C general eng, and U of A general eng. I live in Calgary and am contemplating if Waterloo is worth the move. I am currently leaning towards Waterloo because of the coop which has an excellent reputation. However, I have some concerns regarding chemical engineering coop, and the economy, as well as Waterloo's reputation for being a lonely place.
If I do go to Waterloo I would love to get to know some of my classmates and upper-year eng students for advice, and so when I get there I know at least a few people. I would also love some different perspectives regarding waterloo eng vs U of C eng, moving away from home, res life, tips, anything really.
I've been admitted into McMaster engineering without my physics mark and I was initially ignoring this offer. I applied to both eng and lifsci but now the eng program seems more appealing to me. I really like the concepts of engineering but i SUCK at physics. I really don't know if i have a chance of survival with all the 95s around me in first year :CC but still I don't want to run from it because I can work harder and overcome it
so I'm still debating, 8 days before clicking the button of fate
I'm doing horribly in physics and English with 86 and 85 respectively and those are the only 2 courses that drag down my average. My physics teacher is terrible he doesn't teach at all so I'm concerned about how much I actually am learning compared to other schools. I did terrible in adv with 92 but now i have a 97 in calc. I'm taking the AP program at school but i still want to know whether it is enough to survive first-year math, especially with my physic marks and all that.
Again, do I have a chance of surviving? Thoughts and insights appreciated!!
