Admission Scholarships

A photo of athrunxo athrunxo
Are admission scholarships based on midterm marks or final marks? I know you have to maintain your midterm if they offer it to you, but what happens if your mark increases, and qualifies for a bigger scholarship?

It's based off of whatever mark you get an offer off of.

Final marks keep the offer. If they improve, you get a bigger scholarship.

Waterloo you can only increase your scholarship though :)

I think it's different for all Universities.

For some, it's based on the offer.
For some, it's final mark.
For some, it's what g93 said.

Then they increase the scholarship offer, like when I got my acceptance from Carleton in January I got 8000, but in March they sent me a letter saying it increased to 12000.

So lets say, if I have 94 average right now, and get 95 by finals, I get the bigger scholarship?

Anyone have any idea how the President's Cenntenial Scholarship at Laurier works? The letter that I got from them (with the acceptance package) said that it could be awarded at mid-terms. If I had a 95.0% average and they gave it to me then, would they expect me to keep that average? I'm really hoping they award it regardless (even if I drop a few %)

REALLY?? (if so, you just made my day)
Just to confirm again, lets say if i get 96% top 6 up till midterm (in which I will be awarded president's scholarship of distinction) and drop to 94% by final, does that mean I won't lose the 96% scholarship?

It doesn't say anywhere on the UW site. SO just wanted to make sure :)

Yes, you have to maintain it.



Are you totally sure? Like did you ask them?

It just seems pointless to award the scholarship at mid-term if the same mark has to be maintained for finals...

It says in the admission package, and on the website.

Edit: And it's HBBA, not HBA (your sig)

Where does it say this on the admissions package/online?

This excerpt is taken right off the yellow piece of paper that came with the package: "In addition, students who achieve a MIDTERM or final average of 95.0% or higher will also be eligible for the President's Centennial Scholarship".

I know the mark must be maintained for the Entrance Scholarships, but I believe that the President's Cenntenial is separate from them.

Thanks for the help BTW.

I can't remember where I put my admissions package, but from the website:
These awards are offered based on the best six final grade 12 U/M marks.



Trust me.

Under the "Financial Support" section of the Admissions viewbook, its also reads "Presidents Centennial Scholarship - Awarded to applicants with mid-term or final average entering grades of 95% and over."

I think that it is highly probably that this might be the case, considering they would want to attract kids by gauranteeing them the scholarship before they make their choice. A lot of scholarships are also awarded before final grades are given out (though the fact that this one is purely merit does pleasently suprise me).

See post above.

They would prefer to make it seem like people will get in, then not have to pay it.

Do you happen to have a link to this though? Because on the site it doesn't say anything about them being final marks... just says your overall average has to be 95.0%

And it says it on the letter in the admission package. Up at the top, scholarship is, your average is, maintain this mark at finals to keep it...

Admission package: it says it on the letter (offer of admission), says on that Laurier booklet, and says on the yellow sheet.

I'm thinking (or hoping) they are just refering to the normal entrance scholarships.

I'm going to call the office tomorrow to find out though. Thanks for your help :)

No, because I got the PC scholarship and it still says final marks.
