They may have a different weighting system, or look at different things. They may of also gotten an abnormally high amount of applicants

yeah i got into laurier in march but that was a combined average of grade 11 and grade 12 marks so it came to an 86 average. but for mac, i got rejected with an 80 average of top 6 grade 12 marks. that could be it for you too?

Note that Laurier only takes top six, whereas Mac calculates averages using pre-reqs.

Not anymore, since last year Laurier has used pre-reqs in calculating avgs for mid-term acceptances.

They still just use top 6 for early acceptances though.


Anyways OP did Laurier accept you early or based on your mid-term marks because that could be why if your midterm marks dropped significiantly

actually you got it the other way around. laurier takes pre requisities (its the only way i got in in march otherwise my top 6 grade 12 is an 80 average)

MAC only bases your average on top 6 grade 12 marks (the reason why i didnt get accepted)
