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!

I was wondering if anyone has ever lived in Neill Wycik on gerrard street. Does the studio room have a private bathroom or is it just bigger (the website isn't clear)? Anything else about what it's like living there would be helpful as well.
I have read this page messages and saw the amount of incourgement and positive hope it gives to others.
Iam not a Canadian citizens neither I live in Canada I’m sending my message from across the oceans , maybe some one or some how would find a way to help me purse my dream.
Iam 18 years old like any teenage finished my high school with results that made my family happy as proudly they wished. After graduating things don’t go smoother , it’s actually the total opposite.
Iam a foreigner in a country where I currently live, scholarships or loans don’t apply to me , my country has been classified as “North Korea of Africa” where if I went their no dream other than military and jail would be achieved .
I read about Canada saw it a place where maybe some how would find a help to continue my dream. Iam so passionate about technology more specifically Game technology it been my life getaway for years . I want to know more and add more .

Iam writing this to able to seek your support my lighting my path and guide me to a away where I will be able to obtain a scholavrship to be educated and be useful in a life that every second I spend now is for future.
I just bought a bunch of new furniture for the upcoming year from Roomlend and wanted to share my great experience with you.
First off, the stuff is super high quality and doesn't fall apart like all the Ikea stuff I've burned through. Second, once I'm done with my items, they give me the option to return them for cash or swap for new items. My plan is to swap my items at the end of the school year for new items that I can use to furnish my condo post-graduation.
Anyways, they're a new company so I figured a lot of you wouldn't have heard of them and I wanted to share because it's super cool!
I'll be starting school in fall 2018 (not what I intended in the first place) but I don't think I will be able to start at that time because of financial issues. I just wanted to see if I can start at a different semester (January 2019) so I can have some time to sort out my money issues and other problems.
Will colleges allow new students to basically take a semester off?
Hey guys!! I was wondering how many of you applied to Ryerson Nursing (Main Site) or Collaborative with George Brown and Cenntennial. If so what average did you apply/waitlist/accepted with ??? Any of you planning on accepting your offer this week?!
I used this forum quite a bit when I was deciding on a school last year so, I'd be happy to answer any questions from prospective nursing students!
I applied as a transfer student (105D) with a 3.96 GPA from one year of uni, and a ~96% avg. from CEGEP/high school (I'm from QC). Thus, if you have any questions regarding ON high school requirements, I probably won't be able to answer them.
If you have any questions regarding the program/courses, schedules, the GBC site, etc. I'd be more adept at answering those.
I'm moving to Toronto for school in September and was just wondering what the average cost of living is for students? I'm going to be living in residence first year and I have a meal plan, so I don't need to know rent prices. Obviously it depends on the individual but I'm just looking for a general amount of how much I'm going to spend over the eight month on all my expenses. I don't need to know rent/residence or tuition prices but I'm looking for an average yearly cost of things that I'm going to have buy while there (example- groceries and other necessities)
I took a year off school to work and save up money but I'm worried that I don't have enough saved up. I saved every dollar I could, but I only make minimum wage and Toronto and university residence prices are both extremely expensive. I only get about $15,000 for OSAP. I understand that this is around the max they'll give anyone, but it's not nearly enough for going to school in Toronto. My parents are not helping me whatsoever meaning I am responsible for all my expenses. I'm just wondering what a safe amount is to have in my bank account. I do plan on getting a job during the school year and during the summer but there's no guarantee when or even if that will happen.
P.S- My tuition is around $8000 and residence is between $12,000-$13,000 depending on what room they give me.
I know I have enough for the first year but I'm worried about the next three years.
“May 8, 2018
Target date for Ontario universities to receive second-semester midterm and interim grades for full-year courses from the OUAC. Grades that the OUAC receives earlier will be sent to Ontario universities when received.”
What does this mean? Like lets say my midterm marks is an 83% avg and it increased to lets say an 87% avg before May 8 would they look at that mark (is this interim) or midterms??
hey guys!! I have been accepted to both Ryerson and the George Brown collab for nursing and I am having a tough time deciding between the two. If anyone has any insight to share it would be greatly appreciated!!!
Just recently this year around November I decided that I wanted to become a Nurse. I was unsure in the past but I feel like it is right for me. I have taken biology and chemistry but I'm not sure if I will get in with an 87.3% average for the GBC, Centennial, and MoMac collab programs? Do you think I stand a chance??????
I got a 55 in gr 11 functions by not doing my homework that much and not asking questions when i should have and not going to extra help and not reviewing. If i fix all these could i get atleast an 80 in gr 12 advanced functions.
I'm a 24 years old female from Switzerland and I'm going to Toronto next year to do an university pathway program at a language school (April - August). After that, I'm planning to go to a college with something like an one year Art Fundamentals program, which covers many fields like graphic design, animation, photography etc. Because I don't know which subject I want to focus on yet.
I've graduated with an vocational diploma in business and I've been working in this field ever since. So I don't really have any academic background in art.
But I've been able to be creative in the past at work, like designing Xmas cards, calendar and I also like drawing, photography, making firefox persona in my free time. I really like art so I want to change my career and I want to do that abroad, as I want to travel and widen my horizons.
I've been researching for a long time and found these colleges with basic art programs:
George Brown College: Art and Design Foundation Program (1 year)
Seneca College: Art Fundamentals (8 months)
Humber College: Art Foundation (1 year)
Centennial College: Art and Design Fundamentals (1 year)
Sheridan: Art Fundamentals (1 year) OCAD: First-Year Art
Humber sounds good, so I'm planning to apply - but does anyone know more about the other colleges? I would choose based on their courses but an overall experience or opinion about the college itself would help me a lot to make a decision as well. Tbh I can't finance the studies, but I will still apply and try to get scholarship/credit and work on the side to make it happen because I really want it.
Sorry for my long post D: but I would be very glad if you could share your opinion or tips etc. It's my first time going alone abroad. Thank you so much!
