kasdan9:09pm: getting into full classes
what are your strategies for getting into full classes? there are 0 seats left (not even ones reserved for people in the program) and it started tonight, but nobody's dropped it in time for me to pick it up yet. has anybody tried just going to the class then kindly asking the faculty to add them in later in the semester? it's my final semester so i can't risk them turning me down :/

driveintoalake7:28pm: MEAL PLANS
This question might sound stupid, but I'm an exchange student who's coming to McMaster the next schoolyear and I'd like to know which is the difference between Reduced Meal Plans and Full Meal Plans and what would make you want to choose one over the other. The website does not explain it.

Thanks in advance.

ithinkimhungry10:13am: Okay I graduated in 2006 and am not sure about this.  Is there an online option for transcript requests?  Or, do I still have to go to campus?

I live in Hamilton but ugh! it's still far and I'd rather do it from home but I can't seem to find an online option.

lisforlaura5:58pm: a little bit of insight
Scenario: I go to McMaster University. Somebody at McMaster University sold me a printer that was supposed to work and "in mint condition." It didn't work, I contacted her about it and she promptly blocked me on Facebook (I found her in Marketplace). Basically, the situation has become that she refuses to refund me the money and has avoided all my messages and numerous ways of trying to contact her. She brought in her little sister instead who she claimed she was selling the printer for, who ended up doing the exact same thing. The little sister was very nice at first and said she would refund me back my money. It all seemed good until she decided to ignore all of my messages as well. So.. I've got nothing. I'm not pleased and I feel scammed - I'm pretty sure they knew they were selling me a broken printer and were trying to make money off of silly me.

A friend of mine who looked into this for me told me that I could go to a certain office at McMaster University and basically report her for scamming me and deal with it through them.

My question is, does anyone know if this is even possible? The transaction occurred outside of school. Yes, we both go to McMaster University but does that mean it has anything to do with McMaster? The idea seems strange to me, so I'm looking for an outside opinion.

I know this seems very 'tattle tale' but the very thought of how very low these two sisters are just angers me. I've tried reasoning, discussing it, offering them to have a go at the printer to see if it could be fixed, and it's been dragged out for three monthes and all I want is a little bit of justice.

Has anyone taken French 1Z06? 

I'm an elementary teacher looking to gain basic grammatical, oral and written skills in French - enough to be able to answer oral questions in an interview and the ability to teach Core French to grades 4-8.

Do you think taking this course will help me?

What were your thoughts after taking it?

Thanks :D

suivreletoile11:20pm:  Hey everyone! 

I don't go to your school, but I need to find out what textbook is used for BIO 1JO3 (Human Physiology). Where could I find this information online??? At my school, all the course's texts are listed online in one location. Is it the same for you guys?

hidden_is10:19pm: Hai2U
Hello, I'm new.
I should have joined  a long time ago. I'm a Grad student in Physics at McMaster.  Not really involved in any groups yet - maybe after midterms..

Consumer warning:
Never rent from Transglobe.  People deal with bad landlords all the time, so I thought i'd tell you all so that you didnt have to deal with this one - anywhere in Canada.

matt35810:50pm: SPC Card for McMaster students
Just a heads up for other McMaster students:  you can get an SPC card (student price card) which gives you discounts at a bunch of places like Bluenotes, Burger King, Second Cup, etc.

It's a pretty good deal cause it's $8.50 and you get a free $10 gift card for Esprit, Guess, Jean Machine or Best Buy.  You can buy it online at http://www.spccard.ca/onlinestore.aspx?ref=$10shopcard, they also have a list of all the stores you can get discounts at.

For those that already have the card, share some of the deals you've gotten!

arrivee1:16am: lgbt.
as i enter my first year of mcmaster in the fall, i'm wondering who i should talk to to join the lgbt community or student group. i was just wondering if anyone on here would know of any further information just so i could have a heads up.

i'm also curious as to whether any courses and classes still use lab rats. i love pet rats and would be interested in taking the little guys home at the end of the term and/or year.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young.  GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.


The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution


Fill out the survey at:  www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.


While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the United States.
