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.
Hey, all my friends are already getting into university and I still have not heard from anyone yet, kinda getting stressed a little bit. I applied to the kinesiology program at york, Waterloo, and UofT. My overall for first semester was 88%.
So I applied for a bachelor of science in kinesiology to 7 different schools in Ontario. I applied to Brock, York, Western, Queens, Macmaster, University of Waterloo, and University of Guelph. I was fortunate enough to get into all programs except Macmaster and Queens, as they are more competitive to get into and do not give out offers of acceptance early on in the year. My concern is that I am not too sure which University to study in. I narrowed it down to my top four choices being Western, Macmaster, York, and University of Waterloo. York and Macmaster have the top kinesiology program in Ontario from the research I have done, however, Waterloo offers co-op placements in which you actually get paid and Western has a double major degree offered after the first year in which you are able to receive a degree in both business and kinesiology. If anyone could let me know about what they know about any of the programs or Universities, it would be really helpful!! Thank You!
I applied to 5 programs. They are the following as stated
1. Kinesiology at university of toronto
2. Health Studies at university of waterloo
3. Human kinetics at university of ottawa
4. Concurrent education with program interest in kinesiology and health sciences
5. Biology at ryerson
I just got my report card for my 1st semester final marks and I had the following
1. 96 in kinesiology
2. 92 in world issues
3. 76 in advanced functions
4. 84 in English
I have an overall of 87% and I was wondering if I would be able to get a conditional offer for any of my programs this month in February ? My 2nd semester consists of me having families in Canada a 4M course, spare, chemistry 4U and Biology 4U.
I understand that there is no perfect pre-med in Canada. However, I am hoping to get into medical school after my undergrad (yes, I am aware that I might not want to do this after my undergrad or might not have the marks to do this). I know that everyone says to do a degree that won’t be useless if I don’t get into med school but I don’t care about that I just want to do a science degree. I have heard that McMaster Health Science is one of the best options. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE LIST THE BEST UNDERGRADS WITH SCHOOLS FOR INDIVIDUALS PLANNING ON GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL? If you could list like 10 that would be awesome! Thanks (:
I've applied to offer 10 programs at this point due to my indecisiveness and still learning where I want to be, I know due to me having so many schools some schools will deny me which is what I have heard.
Ryerson - Business Management
Ryerson - Political Science
Ryerson - Public Administration
UofT - Arts
Laurier - Arts
Queens - Arts
Mcmaster - Arts
Western - Arts
UOttawa - Arts
UOIT - Commerce
York- Law and Society
Waterloo - Arts
I know! A lot, but I didn't want to regret not applying somewhere as everyday I am changing my mind. In Grade 11 I didn't do so good sadly I had a 68% average, my Semester 1 Finals are a 86%. I am hoping my marks for Semester 2 can get me to 89-92%. When do you think I will most likely receive acceptances? I know my grade 11 marks may slow this process down.
I'm currently a grade 12 student in an Ontario high school. I am planning to medical school in the future. for my undergrad I applied to Mac health sci, Mac life sci and York Kinesiology. my marks are pretty high (around 92), so I'm pretty sure I will get into Mac life sci and York . I was debating between Mac life sci and York Kinesiology? I've heard from lots of people to choose an easy program so I can get a high GPA but also when I checked the statistic( http://applymd.utoronto.ca/admission-stats ) for York they were really low. and mcmaster had a really large acceptance rate but it did not said how many were from life sci and how many from health sci. Because I know that a lot of students from health science get in but I don't have enough information about life science students at mcmaster.
staying in Toronto will be way easier for me if I go to York, but also I'm scared that I won't get accepted to medical school if I got to York kine. also I'm interested in both programs but I don't know which one is better in my situation. what do u guys think?
Hey everyone! I'm a Grade 12 Ontario student who has applied to the advanced entry opportunity (AEO) at Western University. I have a few questions regarding the application process that has been bothering me to no end.
Ivey starts giving out AEO offers to 101 applicants in March, before our second semester midterm marks come out (in late-April).
They say the admission average will be calculated using one's top 6 grade 12 U/M marks, of which only 4 will be available by the time the first round of offers are given out.
Firstly, of all the Ontario applicants who are accepted eventually, roughly what % are accepted before April midterm marks come out?
Secondly, without second semester's marks, what does Ivey use to calculate our average?
I was wondering if anyone has ever lived in Neill Wycik on gerrard street. Does the studio room have a private bathroom or is it just bigger (the website isn't clear)? Anything else about what it's like living there would be helpful as well.
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.
