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.

hello. i am applying for a number of undergraduate architecture programs and I have to rank them in order of interest (i know i know, the masters are ill that matter but still...). i know that i'll put waterloo as my top choice (like the rest of the world), but then im left with ryerson, carleton and uoft daniels (laurentian as a backup). i visited all the schools and i like the two over uoft since the degree is an arts degree, and there is no coop, but then i found out that only the top third of ryerson students get a coop!! and also theres like only 30 spots in the masters program and its not the most reputable university from what ive heard. but then again, so is carleton! anyone care to shed some light on what schools are the best? also i have high grades so that shouldn't be a concern. thanks in advance!
Science is a subject that I’ve always been really interested in and after taking a course called health care in grade 11 health science seems like something I wanna go into; however, I’ve heard and read over and over again to not go into health sciences as it’s a basically useless degree. Is that actually the case or a slight over exaggeration? Medicine is something I’ve been looking into but I realize that you don’t have to take science/ health science for that, and that’s it’s unbelievably hard to get into and I want to take something that will give me a good backup plan too. Health science is something I want to take because it genuinely interests me, not just so I can maybe be a doctor: the fact that it combines the aspects of science (bio, anatomy) with some social sciences (ethics in healthcare, etc) really seems interesting to me. However I don’t want to go into it if I’m gonna be jobless and in a pile of student debt after four years, but at the same time I don’t want to take a program I will hate. How hard is it to go into a masters degree program? Also, I’ve heard that you can go into and work at health Canada with a health science degree? That’s sounds of interesting, is it true?
Also, before anyone mentions this, computer science, business and engineering are subjects that I HATE so I really do not want to go into those.
I realize these kind of questions are annoying but I’ve tried doing research and not too much has come up. Any insight would be really helpful and appreciated!!
I have noticed that there have been many threads like this ran for nursing, business, and engineering. As I am hoping to enter health science, I thought it would be beneficial for myself and those who are like-minded to share a few things with one another:
School/programs you plan on applying to:
Grade 11 average:
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
Grade 11 average:
Challenge & Change
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
I hope to be a naturopath or chiropractor.
I applied to Carleton's engineering program to various engineering/comp sci programs, and went to check Electronic Info and noticed they now say early conditional offers will be issued in January/February, even though I swear when I applied, the timeline said early offers would be given out in November. Does anyone know if they definitely won't give out early admissions in November/December? Please let me know.
PLEASE READ! Long distance relationships are not what they are portrayed to be. They are not as hard, emotionally draining, or as impossible as people assume. Right now, I am living 3 hours away from my boyfriend (who plays a varsity sport). We see each other once or twice a month. We are both happy, both with room to live our own lives but always being able to catch up at the end of the night. We still love each other, nobody has been unfaithful, and it is relatively easy. The time we spend together is always quality time, and I do not regret staying with him.If you love someone and think you they could be the person for you, go for it. The worst that could happen is that it doesn't work out and you part ways. It is entirely possible, do not give up just because of what you THINK might happen.
Pros of a long distance relationship...
1. The time you spend together is really exciting and precious
2. You have the freedom to be yourself and make friends on your own terms
3. You always have lots to talk about with your S/O because you're apart during the day
4. It tests whether the relationship is really worth it
5. Meeting their new friends means more friends for you!
6. Sex/physical intimacy is so much better when you've been waiting for it
7. It will show you how much your partner really values you
8. You don't need to pick between your friends and partner during the week
9. It helps keep you focused
I hope that this helped anyone that needed to hear it.
Grade 11 was by far my worst year academically and that's due to laziness (i will admit) and some personal issues, but I want to apply for university and go away. I had a 60% averagein grade 11.
My grades in grade 11 were:
World Religions • 63%
(the class i couldn't drop and did nothing in)
American History • 70%
(the class i was told wasn't available despite the fact that there were 2 classes for this course with 15 people each...)
Hospitality and Tourism • 57%
My top schools (in order) are Carleton, U Ottawa, Laurier and I was thinking of either going in undeclared or straight into either sociology or humanities, I want a BA. I don't have my midterms yet or even a progress report but I know I'm currently getting between low-70s to mid-80s (I'm taking Philosophy, English, Social Justice, and Indigenous Studies).
How important are my grade 11 marks? I'm honestly not looking for early acceptance, I literally just want to be accepted. The only reason I'm still considering these school and programs is because this website MyBlueprint is telling me I'm still currently qualified for them but I don't know how accurate it is :/. I have to start applying in like a month and I don't want to waste my parents $50 per school application if my chances of getting in are near impossible.
I’m a grade 12 student and currently considering applying to Carleton for political science or public policy and policy management. For UOttawa I’m considering political science only.
Both the political science programs in the two universities offer co-op, but I am just wondering if anyone with experience could tell me the pros and cons of each as the programs are so similar? I know Carleton holds a worse reputation for social sciences but does that hold up for a political science degree?
Hi I’m a grade 12 student and I’m currently considering which programs to apply for. I’m considering pursuing public policy, political science, business or global affairs. I’ve heard from multiple people that certain degrees prepare you better for the LSAT and law school in general.
Personally, I have an interest in all four so now it is just a matter of deciding.
My name is Neal, and I graduated from Brock's Bachelor of Accounting Co-op program in 2016 and Carleton's Master of Accounting program in 2017. I was a yconic Student Ambassador for 2016-17. Although I work full-time at PwC now, I'm still around answering questions about accounting as a career and universities.
My co-op work experience includes:
-Corporate Accounting, Henkel (Germany)
-Assurance and Tax, Collins Barrow
-Risk Assurance, Ernst and Young
I currently work at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Assurance. .
A snapshot of my time at Brock:
-Served as an executive for several clubs
-Participated in numerous internal/external case competitions and conferences
-Served as a Tutorial Leader for Brock's first-year Macroeconomics course
-Inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma (the top 10% of Goodman get invited)
-Did co-ops and internships with 3 different companies in corporate accounting, assurance, tax and risk assurance located in Germany and Canada
-Participated in a short-term exchange to France
-Volunteered for the business school's Career Services office, where I critiqued students' resumes

Is there any career you can do with solely a health sci degree? I do plan on continuing school after undergrad as of now, but I also don't want to put myself into a position where I absolutely have no other choice if I do feel done w school after. My other option is nutrition, but there are health science programs avaliable at more schools, and the courses seem more interesting to me...
My grade 11 English mark was not the greatest but my mark greatly improved when I took grade 12 English online. When the first round of university acceptances based on grade 11 marks are sent out, will they be looking at my grade 11 mark or is there any chance they will look at my grade 12 English mark instead? For reference, I live in Ontario (therefore applying through OUAC) and my main goal is to study accounting at uOttawa Telfer or Carleton Sprott.
I really want to study peace and conflict at U of T, but I also want to study international affairs at Carleton because of their masters program of International affairs/jurdis law. I was wondering is it possible to get a double major at U of T with peace ad conflict studies and international affairs/relations then later apply for the masters program at Carleton?
Hi, I’m currently a grade 12 student and my top 4 schools at the moment are: Queen’s, Ottawa U, Carleton and Mcgill.
My grade 11 average was an 87 and I’m planning on applying for a political science degree or an undergrad law degree. I’ve been pretty stressed about how high my grade 12 marks will need to be in order for almost guaranteed acceptance (especially for queens and mcgill)
I am an Ontario student and I am most interested in Rotman and Queen's. I will probably have between a 90-92 average in my grade 12 year and I was just wondering if there are any other schools across Canada that I should be looking into. I am worried that I am not going to get into these two schools and just want other people's opinion on what schools have worthy commerce programs that I should look more into. Thanks!!
