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.

Did anyone get any offers from University of Guelph?? When do they make their offers? I was also wondering how hard it is to get into their co-op computer science program cause it says 83-88% on their website.
So I have applied to Uottawa for bipharmaceutical science, Guelph for pharmaceutical and chemical science, and western for pharmacology(BMsc). Which of these would be the best and which would be better for the path to becoming a pharmacist?
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 (:
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?
I have applied to the Biomedical Science program at the University of Guelph. The first round of acceptances is coming up, so if you have applied I was hoping we could discuss:
-Current total average and course averages
-Later, when offers are put out, what average were you accepted with?
-Do you know a lot of people who have applied to this program?
-I understand that the admission cutoff is 84-89%, I know a lot of people at my school that have applied to this program and I am concerned about the cutoff average inflating
Career Goals: Veterinary Specialist
My current average is: 91%
Health Sci: 95%
Courses Next Semester:
I know that my chemistry grade is low and unfortunately, it is not a subject that I excel in. However, based on the courses I have next semester I know that my average will go up and I hope to receive an offer after midterms. Do you think it is possible to get accepted with this current average?
If you are currently in this program, could you please share the average you were accepted with, when you were accepted, and maybe a bit about your experience in this program?
As semester 1 comes to an end, I'm just wondering when exactly universities will receive our final semester 1 marks for grade 12... my last exam was Friday and I know all of my final marks now, so I'm just anxiously awaiting for the schools to get them and for them to start sending out offers of admission based on them. So, does anyone know when exactly the universities will have this information/ act on it?
hey guys, these forums rlly helped when I was in highschool so i'm gonna return the favor. I;m a first year doing Biochem at the university of Guelph (I'm actually leaving cuz I realized this is not for me) but yea if you have any questions let me know :)
Hey guys so I applied to U of T Eng (Civil), Western Eng, Guelph Eng (undeclared first year), and Waterloo (civil) on Dec 20 with the following midterm marks:
My grade 11 average was 93.5 and now sem 1 has almost ended with my anticipated grade 12 marks (going into the exam) to be:
Functions: 88 or 89
Chemistry: 84 or 85
So do you guys think I'll get into the western eng program? I did the connect profile with decent ECs. Let me know what eng programs you guys have applied, if you got an offer and when and avg u currently have!
***Update Final Sem 1 Marks:
Chemistry 82 (RIP)
I got into Guelph at the beginning of Feb but that all I have heard. There has even been some kids that had below 90 avg (and did not do the connect) and got into Western eng before me. I know its still a little early but I feel like should have gotten an offer by now. Thoughts?
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.
Completed my first semester at Guelph. Currently in BTOX COOP major. Have friends in Biomedical Science/ HK/ Biological Sci and so I can answer questions related to those as well. Also, I'm aspiring for Med school, so any I can try to answer questions regarding that.
So I applied to Queens, Guelph, Ottawa, and Western for Computer Science. I did pretty bad in grade 11 so I am going for early acceptance. This semester I am taking physics, earth and space science, and personal fitness. Next semester I have 5 courses: Calculus (night school), English, Online Challenge and Change, Food and Nutrition, Fitness Leadership.
- Earth and Space: 95
- Physics: 60
-Personal Fitness: 93
So the thing is, after second semester mid terms, physics would not be in my top 6, so will universities care about my physics mark? As during 1st round of acceptances, universities will only see my bad physics mark, and my SES mark. If I get 90's (Which I Will) next semester, do I have anything to worry about? In addition, I have not completed my volunteer hours yet, does it matter when I complete them or as long as I complete them by the end of the year?
I am freaking out because i feel like im not going to get into any of the unis i applied to.
I applied to three science programs at western (general science, health science, and med science). Health science is my top choice. Western is the uni i want to go to, but do i have the grades to get in realistically?
English - 93%
Calc - 90%
Chem - 80%
Bio - 88%
Extra Course (mixed) - 90%
Extra Course (mixed) - 90%
But this is what i hope to end with, the semester is still going... i can get these marks.. but idk if ill get into the program i want to.
Can anyone please help im stressing so much. I also applied to guelph med sci and mcmaster life science.. is there a chance ill get in there?
Hello, I'm a high school senior living in the GTA. I'm looking to study somewhere in Ontario and I'm interested in studying physics and/or chemistry. As I am still undecided, I'm interested in possibly doing general science in first year.
I have visited many universities in the last few months, and I felt the most comfortable at McMaster, Queen's, Ottawa and Guelph. But, I can't seem to decide between them. I have applied to all of these schools (Queen's-Science, McMaster-Chemical and Physical Sciences, Ottawa and Guelph-Physics Co-op). I have already been accepted to Queen's.
Which one has the best program? If anyone in the science programs at one of these school's has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
So I am planning on applying to Psychology (BA) programs for universities next year (My number one school is University of Guelph btw). I am currently in grade 11 and have to soon choose my courses for next year, I am aware that the only courses for this program that are required are English and 5 other U/M courses. I am here to ask what other courses I should take that will help me when I do make it to university for Psych. I am thinking of taking Bio and a math, but I am not sure if I will really need it as it not a requirement. So will taking bio and math increase my chances of getting in? So if anyone could offer me some advice on what to take based off their own experience or what they've heard about Psych courses? That would be great! Thanks! (I posted this question before to but forgot to ask if it improves my chances of getting in if I take the recommended courses too instead of just the required)
Hey! If you guys have a moment to spare please fill out the below short survey regarding University applications. I am currently working on a research project and need your help! I'd really appreciate it and with your response, you will be entered in a draw to receive 1 $100 gift card give-away! Thanks a bunch and best of luck with applications!
Why is there so much hype among high school students for engineering programs when even U of T engineering graduates are unemployed/underemployed in the Canadian job market? Have these kids even done their research?
