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!

$hit is crazy expensive compared to a lot of other programs. I know QComm is a top-tier program, but is it really worth that nearly $20k per year price tag (plus around $10k for residence)? Do QComm grads get jobs no other grads from other schools get?
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.
I thought that it would be helpful to have a thread about acceptances to Sauder School of Business '19! Please include location, date applied/date of acceptance, averages, and quality of ec's/video interview (:
AVRG 85.5, Im anticipating to work even harder next sem and bring my avrg to the 87-89 range
Im applying to Ryerson, Rotman, UTM, UTSC BBA COOP, York (not schlich), and Degroote. What are my chances at these business schools? Im so worried, as I have been putting a 100 percent everyday.
Thanks for your time.
How easy is it to lie on the PSE and just create ECs you never did? Is there any real way for them to verify anything? And who would you put as a verifier? Just wondering because I know people who are doing this.
I am currently a grade 11 student and I just finished my first semester. I averaged around 90% and now I think it's a good time to start refining my EC's or other areas in my academic life. I am looking to apply to Queens, York, Laurier, McMaster, and maybe Ryerson. I am interested in commerce/business programs at each university. Currently, I have some standard EC's.
I write for the school newspaper, I am a lifeguard, and volunteer at the local food bank. But I always hear about QComm students (and other students from accredited business programs) being accepted with amazing EC's and I was wondering if there was any advice anyone could give me. Any EC recommendations I can start or pick up now since I still have about a year before I apply. Any good habits/tips would be appreciated as well. Areas to focus on would be appreciated as well.
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
Hi, I am applying to university using the OUAC 105D application and am almost done my application. The part in which it asks for 'Academic Background' it says if my school is eligible for submitting a transcript electronically, I can make a request for that. I have a few questions regarding this.
My first question is however, how long will it take for the OUAC to receive my transcript electronically? Also just to make sure, will that same electronic transcript be used for my university application to my university program choices?
My other question is regarding which school I choose to request my transcript from. I graduated high school from L'Amoreaux Collegiate Institute in 2017. I had attended night school courses at Albert Campbell Collegiate Institute & Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute to upgrade some courses right after graduating. The most recent school I attended was in 2018 this year and I was enrolled in a day school program at Scarborough Center for Alternative Studies. My question is which school do i request my transcript from?
hey so idk if i really have the ec's for queens commerce but just wanted to see if anyone has any advice...
expected average: 91-93%
ecs: part time job at a library where i am a senior page who trains the new employees (since grade 10), volunteer at habitat for humanity restore (started this summer), volunteer at the theatre as an usher (since grade 10 but i do it infrequently), volunteer for the town at events (only gr9 and 10), apart of my school's HOSA, yearbook club, and student council (but i hold no executive positions).
is there any shot of me getting in? i am a decent writer so i could definitely try to make these seem like big contributions and efforts. Does paid employment even count as ECs? Is it bad that I dont have any great awards from the past 4 years that i have received? Could I include conferences that I have been to such as laurier's leadership in business conference as an EC? I think i am just too average to get in....
I recently received the Chancellor Nomination from my school and I have a couple of questions regarding it.
Since I am applying as a Chancellor Nominee, do I still need to complete a PSE and SE because I am applying for the Commerce program? If so, do I need to submit the PSE and SE by December 1 (deadline for Chancellor nomination application)?
From doing some research, in past years it seems as though the nomination helps a lot in receiving a regular offer (especially for the commerce program). Is this still true for this year as well?
Anyone else applying to Queen's Chancellor? What programs are you going for? Is it true that if you are a chancellor nominee you have a higher chance of getting into competitive programs like Commerce?
As the school year is about to start, I figured I would do an AMA to help the incoming class prepare for the ass whoopin they're about to get at Rotman. Jk.. kinda. All jokes aside, ask me anything (my experience, social life, academics, etc) and I'll do my best to answer.
Bit about me:
- Going into second year
- I'm an accounting specialist
- Managed to achieve a GPA above 3.7 in my first year
I was wondering how cut offs work and what my chances of getting into Roman is as of now. I know can bring my overall average (excluding advanced functions as it's not a pre requisite) to 92% by second semester midterms. Will they reject my application before those mid term marks as my first semester average is only a 80.5%. I know I can get a 97 in data and accounting and 90 in Calculus if I try hard enough. I kinda slacked off with AF, it's not difficult for me but it's just that I always put it to last minute to learn the material.
