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.

Hi there. I was in the same boat as you guys like 8 months ago lol. I applied to many nursing programs and got into every single one of them. I ended up at Mcmaster main! But I applied to Western main, Western Fanshawe, Ryerson main, Ottawa, York, and Brock. Ask away on any admissions for any of these schools.
I also applied to other programs other than nursing. (Waterloo life sci, Mcmaster Med Rad Sci, Mcmaster life sci, UTM life sci). I know this may seem like a lot of programs and a waste of money but I had no idea what I wanted to do. And I wasn't the smartest so I was scared I wasn't going to get in.
I have read this page messages and saw the amount of incourgement and positive hope it gives to others.
Iam not a Canadian citizens neither I live in Canada I’m sending my message from across the oceans , maybe some one or some how would find a way to help me purse my dream.
Iam 18 years old like any teenage finished my high school with results that made my family happy as proudly they wished. After graduating things don’t go smoother , it’s actually the total opposite.
Iam a foreigner in a country where I currently live, scholarships or loans don’t apply to me , my country has been classified as “North Korea of Africa” where if I went their no dream other than military and jail would be achieved .
I read about Canada saw it a place where maybe some how would find a help to continue my dream. Iam so passionate about technology more specifically Game technology it been my life getaway for years . I want to know more and add more . As they say Readers escape from the reality world through reading I believe gamers travel and live that moment and learn through playing too.
Iam writing this to able to seek your support my lighting my path and guide me to a away where I will be able to obtain a scholavrship to be educated and be useful in a life that every second I spend now is for future.
I will be entering grade 12 this upcoming school year. I had previously been dead-set on going into nutrition or health sciences. However, I have now grown to seriously consider nursing. I have, of course, researched the prereq's and averages to be considered for admission to nursing programs. I am already set to take all of the 4U courses I'd need (bio, chem, data) But, I just want to know how actually cut-throat it is to get into a nursing program. My grade 11 average was in the mid-high 80's (do keep in mind, this was without the fire under my a** that grade 12 will certainly bring to get impeccable marks) I just want to know what I'm up against and what exactly I'd need to achieve, (as I realize while a program may say, for example, you need an 85, competition causes you to actually have a 90 to be accepted) I'd obviously prefer to be at a university campus for all four years and not have to go too far up North lol.
I already passed and took English in grade 12 and got a 75%, but I wanted to improve my mark so this semester I took it again in night school NOT KNOWING THAT THIS TEACHER IS NOT OKAY. Shes giving lots of people low marks. Basically, its passed the date to drop a course as it may and I am wondering if I can just fail this English? will OUAC take my 75% English mark?
My ECs were great and included a self created service trip for three months of summer in Uganda and also starting my own technology website in which i consulted other local businesses alongside partners who were 30+ years old. still waiting to hear back form harvard but all is well as UBC was a top pick and my friends with 96% avg havent heard back LOL best of luck to everyone.
I finished my first semester with an average of 89.5%, this is with my 6U completed courses. Will I get an offer to the Western/Fanshawe collab program? I heard it was an 88-89% last year, I'm really nervous.
I want to hear where all the 105D applicants are at:
- What was your high school average
- What is your Uni. GPA
- Where did you apply
- Have you received an offer yet?
I had a 82% avg in high school (10+ years ago), and a 3.82 in Uni. with a completed Hons. Undergrad (last 12 courses are at an 86% avg.). I applied to Western (4 yr. & Compressed), U of T Compressed, & Fanshawe RPN. I wrote 1 page Personal Statements of Interest for Western and Fanshawe, even though they weren't required (I really hope they won't frown on this) just explaining my motivations and past experiences. I have not heard anything back yet. Good Luck!
I'm contemplating whether I should take online courses to get my high school diploma on Virtual High school or Independent Learning Centre.I am a very anxious person so I really want a good experience and so I can go into college/university confident. I want to know which one is better on structure and services wise and how are teachers like. Are teachers willing to help their students?
I was wondering if any of you yourselves, or have friends who transferred into nursing after a year or 2 of university? I have a high 80s average but still haven't gotten into any nursing programs yet. So if I don't get into any, I was planning on transferring after a year of kinesiology. Does anyone know what that process is like or how hard it will be? Im planning on trying to transfer into either western, queens, ryerson, york, or Ottawa.
Thanks so much! Just trying to do whatever it takes to eventually get a BScN
Hi guys, so basically I'm from Singapore and I'm applying for schools in Ontario. They required me to send in my transcripts to WES (World Education Services) for evaluation. I just got back from them and they gave me 12.0 undergraduate credits and a 3.44 GPA overall. They also stated the Canadian Equivalency is one semester of undergraduate study, not really too sure what that means. Anyway, how do you guys think I fared, will i stand a good chance entering university? I'll really appreciate any help and advice
Hi i'll be attending fanshawe college next year, but I wanna get a Criminology degree or a Justice degree from a university. Is it possible for me to transfer to a uni after a year in college if i do well?
I'm gonna be attending fanshawe next year and i'll probably stay at res. I just wanna ask if it's easy to make friends there because i'm not from the area. I'm generally pretty social but i just wanted to ask because I heard there're loads of white and brown people and im ASIANNNNNNNN
I am currently a Fanshawe student, with two prior years in University as a health science student. Im taking General sciences at Fanshawe and was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation as me. I have all the pre requisites for pretty much every BScN program, but my high school grades range in the mid 80's. Thats why I'm taking general sciences, and in my first semester I finished with a 4.2 GPA. Im applying to Western-Fanshawe collab, Ryerson-George Brown Collab, McMaster, and Windsor for nursing. Will these schools look at my fanshawe GPA for acceptance, and accept my high school pre reqs or will they just disregard my fanshawe year?
I'm enrolling Fanshawe College, London Ontario this September 2017.I have got my acceptance letter and also I have made my 1st semester fee.Now I;m seeking for a loan in order to cover up my remaining tuition fee. Can u someone help me with this?
So I got accepted to Fanshawes bachelor of commerce (accounting program) can anyone give me a students opinion on it?! I have to choose between this program or kings university's global commerce program. In all honestly the Fanshawe program is better I feel because of the co-op opportunity, and because I feel I could succeed and become more involved in a small college. Any information would be greatly appreciated!!!
I was accepted into all five of the schools that I applied to, Fanshawe, St. Clair, Mohawk, Conestoga, and Loyalist for Motive Power Technician. I have picked between Fanshawe, Mohawk, and Conestoga. What my problem is, is that I don't know which one to choice. This is the biggest decision I have to make at this point in my life. I was really hoping that some one could give me a bit of advice.
I've been accepted to both humber and Fanshawe, both have about equal educational opportunities for me. I have grown up in London, and am already in the bar scene here(which quite the wonderful bar scene it is) is humber nightlife as good as what Fanshawe seems to be??? I visit Toronto a lot, but have never really seen its nightlife, Londons known for being a student/party city so is Toronto more chill?
I don't want to go away for school only to regret leaving all the friends and excitement I have here in London.
Hello future nursing students! I know this is a common thread for students looking towards going into nursing and it would be cool to have it up again for the upcoming year. I'm definitely excited to apply to university and I know a lot of you guys must be as well so ->
Please, share with us:
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What overall average are you aiming for for your final year?
I plan on applying to Ryerson Collab Program (main site), and as a back up I might apply to George Brown/Ryerson Collab and York's collab program. I'm aiming for a 90% average but anything above that would be amazing.
I hope you guys get into your desired programs by the end of this school year :)
Hi there, I'm looking into nursing and it seems like most (expect for maybe a few universities) university nursing programs are in collaboration with a nearby college (ie Western and Fanshawe). I am wondering if I will still get a university degree or if it will be a college degree. How do I apply to these programs? Is it through OUAC or? Is anyone currently taking a nursing program or taking a nursing collab program? Any thoughts on different schools that off this program - I'm hoping to be a nurse at a hospital in London (Ont) if that helps. Also, a prerequisite for many nursing programs is math and chem - is there really any chem or math in these programs though??
