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.
$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.
Now that it's February, Western and Queens are giving out more offers to prospective nursing students based on Gr 11 and Gr 12 first semester marks. So I would love if you guys could provide the following info to help each other out. Thanks everyone!
Gr 11 average: 92.5%
Gr 12 first semester average: 91.75%
Expected top 6 average: 93-94% (I have a pretty easy second semester)
Date of application: November 25
When did you submit your PSE (for Queens): First week Feb, I think
Date of acceptance: Patiently waiting...
When did OUAC send in your first semester marks? Feb 14. (I thought this would be nice to add because some schools submit marks earlier than others, which affects when they receive offers)
Also, does anyone know what the cut-off was for Western last year??
Heyy! I applied to QU Health Sciences and I understand that they are recruiting their first class ever as it is a new program. I have seen on their website that they anticipate that the admission average will be 90%. What do you all think it will be around? Do you guys think it will be higher or lower? Just curious... Thanks for your opinions!
I have not seen any other forums or fb groups for people apply to QuARMS 2019 so here is a place for people ask question about it, let us know if you have received any news (supplemental application/interview/acceptance), your ECs, Volunteer, average, what you wrote for your essays, etc.
So I was on the QueensU website recently and found out that their Health Science program is offered both online and on campus? I thought it was online only so is this a new development from queens? I’m trying to learn more about it but there’s not much online about it (the on campus program), so I’m assuming it’s new. Does anyone know anything about this program? Thank you!
For the Schulich leader scholarship application we need at least one reference to be from a school staff member. Should it be from any teacher or a science/math teacher who can comment on my academics? I got it from a teacher who can talk about my leadership but now I am wondering if the reference had to be more about the type of student I am.
For the queens pse, it says for the extracurricular section to identify the total number of hours you have devoted or expect to devote to each activity.
My question is do I have to write in the description of each activity, "I have devoted 20 hours to this activity," or is this portion of the question covered by your start and end date/hours a week/weeks a year?
So my grade 12 semester 1 marks were just submitted to OUAC, I have a 91% average. Do you think that’ll be good enough to be accepted to queens arts (health studies intended major) and western health sci? My grade 11 average was less than favourable (74%) so I’m not sure...are they still looking at grade 11 marks now that they have grade 12? Do you think I’ll have to wait until they get grade 12 semester 2 midterm marks?
So last year while I was applying for uni, and I saw a thread where a first year student answered questions about the program and talked about how their experience in the program was so far. I found this very helpful at the time in guiding me to choose Queens Eng.
I got into Queen's with a 93 avg, and didn't receive an offer until around mid May. The workload in Eng is intense at first, and the first semester really hits hard. Your marks from highschool will typically dip by 10-30 percent. The workload comes in waves I find: meaning some weeks get intense (usually around mid-terms). Of course this is all manageable, and as long as you don't fall behind, you'll be completely fine. I chose Queen's mainly because of the open first year, as I did not know what type of Engineering I wanted to go into. I have to decide later this month, but I think I'll either go into Chemical Engineering (Biomedical option) or Mechanical Engineering.
If you guys have any questions about Eng, Queen's Eng, Queen's or Uni life in general, I'd be happy to answer.
Hey! I know I was really nervous this time of year last year and had loads of questions so if any aspiring nurses have any questions about Queen's nursing or applying to other schools across Canada i'll do my best to answer!
Can you drop a corequisite without dropping BOTH courses? I would take the other over the summer. Do you think they'd let me? I've heard of people doing it, but the midterm is tomorrow and I wanna be safe.
