Got accepted today...pretty sure many others did as well.

Even though it's pretty much in my backyard, I don't know it that well.


Good luck to all!

Congrats. Did the acceptance letter mention a cutoff & average you must maintain?

Thanks

I think 84 is on the high end of the cut off. But I don't know how the strength of this year is so it might be lower or higher. I know a person who made brock co-op with 83 average. That to later in the year. What is your average? I think if you have a average of 84.5 or higher you should get an acceptance by the end of feb.

I'm wondering myself... I have a 90% avg and I'm pretty sure there's no supplement. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Guys I wouldn't worry at all if I were you. With you 88% and 90% averages you'll get in fine, I'm in 12B this year and applied to MAC last year with an 84% average but got in, in April, there's still tons of time, try to not get too worried just yet.

12B because calculus killed me and dropped average to 79 (Below the 80 i had to hold), Luckily this year i'm applying with an 84 again, but 84 with final marks!

Does anyone know what the cut off average that an applicant must attain to receive admission to the Business I program?

And does admission rely strongly on the prerequisite marks or are they equally weighted?

In order to make sure we meet our enrolment targets and don't end up with too many students, we were waiting until we had all the grade data from the OUAC from first semester before we made decisions on where we needed to set the cut-off for admission to each program. That review has now been done and another wave of offers will go out early next week.

We do not weight the pre-requisite courses any differently than any other course. Admission averages are calculated based on the top 6 grade 12 U/M courses (for ontario applicants) which must include those required specificaly for your program. In the case of Business that is ENG4U, two of: MHF4U, MDM4U, MCV4U. Hope this helps.
