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!

Hi prospective nursing students! Let's use this thread as a space to share information, questions, concerns, advice, and more with one another as the year progresses.
To get the discussion rolling, start off with your:
• programs of interest (both nursing and non-nursing);
• expected average; and
• career goals!
I'm thinking of applying to McMaster for nursing and health sciences as well as Western for nursing with a 95-96%. I'd like to be a nurse practitioner in the future, but do not have a particular speciality in mind yet.
So I applied to Queens, Guelph, Ottawa, and Western for Computer Science. I did pretty bad in grade 11 so I am going for early acceptance. This semester I am taking physics, earth and space science, and personal fitness. Next semester I have 5 courses: Calculus (night school), English, Online Challenge and Change, Food and Nutrition, Fitness Leadership.
- Earth and Space: 95
- Physics: 60
-Personal Fitness: 93
So the thing is, after second semester mid terms, physics would not be in my top 6, so will universities care about my physics mark? As during 1st round of acceptances, universities will only see my bad physics mark, and my SES mark. If I get 90's (Which I Will) next semester, do I have anything to worry about? In addition, I have not completed my volunteer hours yet, does it matter when I complete them or as long as I complete them by the end of the year?
I can totally understand how stressful it is to apply to universities. That is why I am here to help!
Last year, I applied to commerce programs at UBC, U of T, SFU, Queens, and Alberta. Feel free to ask me any questions you have about the applications for the above uni; as well as any general questions that you may have.
If you need tips or help with writing personal essays for uni and stuff, I am also the go to person for that :D
Next Semester I have a financial securities course and accounting (hoping for a 95+ in both. Calculus - Don't know if i'll do very well, but it will not be in my top 6 for Ivey aeo, and my mark in this class obviously won't prevent me from meeting the Qcomm 87 cutoff or the laurier bba cutoff. English next semester as well.
I want a closed campus experience without commuters, so I do not plan on applying to Rotman or Schulich. I don't think I would enjoy it there. My top choices are Western (only if i have aeo), Queen's, and Laurier BBA as my backup.
When do you think Laurier BBA will accept me? Should I even bother with the ABS form?
EC's for Queens and Ivey aeo:
Link crew leader (leader to a group of grade 9s)
Canadian tire employee
Tutor two kids through a charity
Recently started a club with my friends, but I might not write about this since it's so late and I don't have much to show for this.
I am also concerned that I have no awards other than Honour roll and another for consistently having the highest mark in one of my classes last year? Is this bad?
What would you say my chances are for QC and Ivey? Considering my average will probably drop eventually to say a 96-97 maybe, and I try hard to connect leadership to my EC's?
I am interested in working in, or at least trying out an internship in Finance (IB, private equity, etc). Will this be possible if I go to Laurier?
Hi, i am currently in grade 12 and want to go in queens commerce. However, i dont have the full funds to pay for it. I would have to pay over 50k in dept. My question is if it worth going into dept and paying it back later or should i go to a university like McMaster for commerce where i would have no dept. Is there a major difference? Also, would i make a higher salary with a queens degree? THANKS. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Hello, I'm a high school senior living in the GTA. I'm looking to study somewhere in Ontario and I'm interested in studying physics and/or chemistry. As I am still undecided, I'm interested in possibly doing general science in first year.
I have visited many universities in the last few months, and I felt the most comfortable at McMaster, Queen's, Ottawa and Guelph. But, I can't seem to decide between them. I have applied to all of these schools (Queen's-Science, McMaster-Chemical and Physical Sciences, Ottawa and Guelph-Physics Co-op). I have already been accepted to Queen's.
Which one has the best program? If anyone in the science programs at one of these school's has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hey guys, I'm planning to apply to Queens' Commerce program! Take a look at my personal information, and let me know if I have a chance of getting in!
If you are also interested in the program, please post the following: -Projected Grade 12 average -Grade 11 average -ECs. -Other schools of interest -When you hear back from the university (acceptance/rejection)
If you are currently/was in the program, please leave some tips and share your averages/ECs in the comments.
A bit about myself... -Projected Grade 12 average: 92%-95% -Grade 11 average: 92.6% (includes ICS4U (90%), HRE4M (95%), and MHF4U (97%)) -ECs: VP of 2 Clubs/Councils, member of a local youth council, was a lifeguard/swim instructor. -Also interested in: UW/WLU BBA/BMath, Rotman Comm, UW AFM, WLU BBA, and Schulich BBA.
So I am planning on applying to Psychology (BA) programs for universities next year (My number one school is University of Guelph btw). I am currently in grade 11 and have to soon choose my courses for next year, I am aware that the only courses for this program that are required are English and 5 other U/M courses. I am here to ask what other courses I should take that will help me when I do make it to university for Psych. I am thinking of taking Bio and a math, but I am not sure if I will really need it as it not a requirement. So will taking bio and math increase my chances of getting in? So if anyone could offer me some advice on what to take based off their own experience or what they've heard about Psych courses? That would be great! Thanks! (I posted this question before to but forgot to ask if it improves my chances of getting in if I take the recommended courses too instead of just the required)
I'm applying to Arts at a few different schools so my only required prerequisite is English. This semester I only have 3 classes so will they look at those three, my grade 11 English mark and my next two best grade 11 marks?
