2010/2011 Queen's Commerce Acceptance!

A photo of fullforceRC fullforceRC
I didn't get my acceptance yet but I think I heard that some people got their Queen's acceptances already (the Chancellor nominees?) Anyways, post here if you got accepted to QComm! Especially those who aren't Chancellor Nominees... are there anyone out there that got accepted to Queen's who didn't sign up for this award?

They sent out an email saying they don't generally accept commerce students until April so I'm not worrying about it too much.

I'm pretty sure the only you get in now is if you have like 96%+ higher averages

Not worrying indeed! =D Do you think a flat 90 will still be competitive this year for QComm?

marks didnt make too much of a difference last year

i knew a guy with 94 avg who got into ivey, schulich, waterloo math/CA etc but not qComm

plus a couple of mid 90s here on SA didnt get in last year, while some people with much lower got in


they seem to really weigh supp essay and ECs heavily

"What is the average grade cut-off for consideration?

For the past few years, the lowest average from an Ontario high school considered was 87%." Quoted from the Queen's Commerce FAQ page.

You might also be interested:

"How many students are accepted into the first year of the program?

Currently the first year class is 375, however, we may grow to 450 in fall 2011, which means there are more opportunities for highly qualified students to receive an offer to the program."

Time to do the happy dance guys? =P

Yes Chancellor Nominee, probably played a huge role as my average is only about 91%. My friend who was also a chancellor nominee with same or higher mark has not been accepted yet...weird

87% is the minimum but they say that a 90% average is competitive so I'd have to say yes. Plus that was what I was aiming for first semester...Mind you I exceeded those expectations a bit but ya you're a competitive applicant :)

What are your extracurriculars like?

Congrats!

I wish the fact that I am a Chancellor's nominee would kick in soon. I'm in a similar position, like your friend, actually. Waiting and waiting. But patiently!

I AM a Chancellor's nominee, Ontario student, 93%-94% average and I have NOT heard a thing! I am beginning to hate the word "Pending". Seems a little inconsistent - Jennyyau with 91% and accepted already? Some girls from BC are in already also,so who knows what the logic is??? :bom:

I checked the OUAC site. The Queen's site is working now though.

It looks like extracurriculars and essays are having a major impact on who is being accepted. I think they were being honest when they say that anything above 87% is considered equally, and even chancellor's nominees might not have that much of an advantage over anyone else. I would love to know what criteria they use to judge the essays and extracurriculars. \:

Oh btw, I remember posting somewhere that I knew a friend that got into Queen's Commerce already that isn't a Chancellor recipient. Update on that, he actually DID apply for Chancellor, but he didn't get it. So he got accepted on the sole basis that they reviewed his application earlier than everybody else, no fear guys!

^ Yeah, accept for my friend he wasn't even a chancellor nominee, his application didn't get past school. He's not that involved, only Student Council and some minor things but his avg is a 99. Literally, a 99.0 avg... so he got in.

I think I wrote my schoalrship incredibly well, I got teachers to edit my essay for me. And spent a lot of time.
I also have decent (student award decent, so pretty good) ECS
