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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
Brock's BBA Co-op program seems amazing and offers much more hands on and experiential learning than prestigious programs such as Queen's Commerce and Schulich. Why is the admission average required so low? People with low 70s and 80s are getting accepted, which makes me feel like there is a catch to it all. Can someone explain?
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
I'm in grade 11, and I'm interested in post-secondary programs at Ryerson (Business Tech Management & Business Management), and Business administration at University of Windsor. All of these programs only require one mathematics prerequisite (either Data Management, Advanced Functions or Calculus and Vectors). Here's the thing, in grade 9 I did horrible in academic and was forced to take applied grade 10, I did well enough, to be eligible for mixed 11 (which i'm currently in). With a mixed math course, I can easily take Grade 12 data management, but before I can take grade 12 AF, I need to take grade 11 functions (which i'll have to do first semester of grade 12). I'm just wondering with just taking Data Management put me at a disadvantage since it's not a rigorous course compared to AF or Calculus. Then taking functions then advanced functions a better choice since it's a safety bet or am I just fine with just DM and taking Functions then AF just a waste time and a risk. (it'll most likely lower my average).
P.s. I have an extensive resume, which includes winning many business awards and competitions, if it matters.
