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.
I applied to 5 programs. They are the following as stated
1. Kinesiology at university of toronto
2. Health Studies at university of waterloo
3. Human kinetics at university of ottawa
4. Concurrent education with program interest in kinesiology and health sciences
5. Biology at ryerson
I just got my report card for my 1st semester final marks and I had the following
1. 96 in kinesiology
2. 92 in world issues
3. 76 in advanced functions
4. 84 in English
I have an overall of 87% and I was wondering if I would be able to get a conditional offer for any of my programs this month in February ? My 2nd semester consists of me having families in Canada a 4M course, spare, chemistry 4U and Biology 4U.
I understand that there is no perfect pre-med in Canada. However, I am hoping to get into medical school after my undergrad (yes, I am aware that I might not want to do this after my undergrad or might not have the marks to do this). I know that everyone says to do a degree that won’t be useless if I don’t get into med school but I don’t care about that I just want to do a science degree. I have heard that McMaster Health Science is one of the best options. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE LIST THE BEST UNDERGRADS WITH SCHOOLS FOR INDIVIDUALS PLANNING ON GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL? If you could list like 10 that would be awesome! Thanks (:
Hi I just finished my first semester for grade 12, ending up with a 68 in advanced functions. I have completed biology and chemistry too and overall average for these 3 is 75. I have four subjects in my second semester. I am hopeful to bring my average up to atleast an 80. I am really interested in getting into Ryerson for the Biology program. Do I stand a chance?
I've applied to offer 10 programs at this point due to my indecisiveness and still learning where I want to be, I know due to me having so many schools some schools will deny me which is what I have heard.

I know! A lot, but I didn't want to regret not applying somewhere as everyday I am changing my mind. In Grade 11 I didn't do so good sadly I had a 68% average, my Semester 1 Finals are a 86%. I am hoping my marks for Semester 2 can get me to 89-92%. When do you think I will most likely receive acceptances? I know my grade 11 marks may slow this process down.
Hi, has anyone received an offer of admission from Ryerson BSW program yet? If you did what was your overall average. I already received an offer of admissions from child and youth BA, however that was my back up plan. My average is a solid 91. I’m not sure if that is good enough because I hear the program is highly competitive. Should I be worried?
This is probably a really stupid question but if you do a semester abroad do you pay your school's tuition or the school you're studying at while abroad's tuition (including international student fees)?
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.
So I'm trying to transfer from uoft to ryerson. I'm on OUAC trying to send my transcript. My high school sent my transcript within a day. However, uoft hasn't sent anything at all. I'm wondering if it will only be sent when I review and submit?
Hi I'm applying through the 105 D application due to the fact that I'm not in high school anymore. In my application under the 'Academic Background" tab i put down various nightschools and higshcool attended. But my questions is, when it asks "highest year level achieved" what do i put down? i been to that highschool all 4 years and passed through all my nightschools with high marks, but the night schools are only 1 semester long each. so what do i put down in highest year level achieved in each?
