The York University Thread

I guess since it's the only school left without a thread.

To start it off, is anyone doing Frosh this year either as a leader or a participant?

Also, does anyone know when the OSAP documents are ready to pick-up? Too bad that Unitext closed down, I guess that's one less option to buy and sell our books.

I'm in 4th year, Majoring in Geography, getting certificate in GIS. I'm looking forward to Yorkfest for ALL THE FREE STUFF!!!! I dunno when osap documents are ready to be picked up but I always pick them up pretty late when there are nomore line-ups.

Heres a tip, for some classes you don't even need to buy the book as the prof either doesn't even use it or its on reserve in the library. If you're REALLY cheap some of the books aren't shrink wrapped in the bookstore, you can read it in there if nobody sees you.

Oh btw the URL in your signature to yorkonline or something doesn't work.

For textbooks,I always buy my textbooks used and then re sell them after that.You might only lose like 20 bucks per textbook if they continue to use the textbook or sometimes you can resell them at the same price.Dont be cheap in textbooks but there are some courses where textbooks are hardly used.

B plus is a very good grade.I noticed that in your final years,getting a plus is like nearly impossible and getting A is lot and lot of work.

A piece of advice is that asked a lot of info about the prof that teaches a course.It is very important as some courses are lot easier by some prof rather than others.

No but if you didn't it would be a waste of money.

if you are taking political theory (think it is still a requirement) try to get prof. newman, one of the best profs i've had so far.

It depends on your college. It usually starts during the last week of August and runs through Labour Day. Each college has their own thing, so it's best to get in contact with them.
