Hello fellow prospective Waterloo students!

My name is Bo and I'm a first-year Software Engineering student and Engineering Ambassador at the University of Waterloo. I know many of you are keen to study at Waterloo. I hope this thread will be very useful for you guys. I also started my blog: bo-peng.net/blog to write about my first year experience. I'll also be writing about the University admission process, and specifically for Engineering programs! 

List any questions below! I will try my best to respond to your questions daily.

UTSC vs Waterloo Co-op Life Science

3 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by Abhi Mevawala
I was accepted into both UTSC Co-op Life Science and Waterloo Co-op Life Science. I've heard may things about the social life for both universities (like how UTSC is like a high school and isolated, and how Waterloo's is better, etc), and I've visited both. I was wondering if anyone can give me details on the programs themselves, and things about the co-op placements (heard that Waterloo has better co-op, but not that great in the science department). I'm pretty conflicted to where I should go since they seem pretty equal.

Cut off for Laurier BBA? Second Round of Acceptances?

Anonymous

I'm hoping to get in for the second round of acceptances for Laurier BBA, which is based on a combination of your best 6 11/12 U/M courses, of which have to include a minimum of 3 12U/M courses. I've calculated my average and it should be a 88.83%. I know Laurier doesn't round up marks, but do you think I have a chance at getting in for second round??

Hi everyone,
I just got accepted to Comp Sci at UTSG victoria college and am waiting for an offer for engineering.
I have heard rumours that UTSG is very hard to get a good GPA and because of this, impossible to go to graduate school.
I was wondering if i should avoid UTSG if i want to get a good GPA and attend a good graduate school.
Thanks!

Hi everyone,
I'm applying to Engineering at U of T and have to pick a college for residence. Right now University, Innis, and New are my top 3 choices, but not sure what order to put them in.
Any thoughts? Food, sense of community, rooms, etc -- anything is appreciated.
Also, I hear you have to rank Innis 1st on OUAC but I didn't every see that option when I applied on OUAC... is this true?
Thanks!

McMaster Vs. UofT Life Sciences Program?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC
Hey guys, I'm currently a high school student, and I was just wondering which program would be better to attend for a life science program, UofT, or McMaster. I ultimately want to go to medical school, and I've heard that UofT is a horrendous GPA killer. But I've always been in love with the university, and have always wanted to go there. McMaster on the other hand, seems like a wonderful program, and apparently it is easier to get a higher GPA. I'd like to know your opinion on which one would be better to attend, and information on admission criteria such as their cutoff averages. Also I'd like to know whether either one looks at Ec's, and what the atmosphere is like at each school.

Thanks for your replies :)

PSE Deadline - March 1?

Anonymous
7 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi guys - I missed the February 15 deadline to submit the PSE.
Does anyone know what "subsequent offers of admission" means in terms of the March 1 PSE deadline (is it after they've accepted most of the students who are already submitted their PSE)? I'm worried I won't get in.. I have an overall average around 93% which I'm happy about, but a lot of the other Engineering applicants will have strong marks like these, and they've probably submitted their PSE's already. Thanks!

I am an International student who applied to UBC. 
So they requiring me to send them an official score of TOEFL and  SAT/ACT. I sent them my TOEFL score, but I have not taken SAT/ACT yet. Would this cause any problem since its the major requirement.

Does anyone know when UW will start giving out acceptances? 

Engineering should be soon, but I have no clue on the math programs!

Also, if you wouldn't mind saying the program(s) you applied to, your top 6 average (using gr 11 marks when necessary), and when you submitted your AIF, that'd be great :)

Electrical Engineering and Math/FARM
avg: 96-97 (this might be off though because I took adv. func. in the summer)
AIF submitted late Jan/early Feb
