Can I get a alternate offer for Computer Science at Waterloo?

A photo of Brian070 Brian070
I applied to UOW for Software Engineering but I dropped Chemistry which is a prerequisite. I was wondering if I can still be considered for a alternate offer for Computer Science. I also did not complete the AIF.

My marks so far are:

Philosophy - 80
Adv. Functions - 80
English- 66
Physics - 86 (Midterm)
Calculus - 90 (Midterm)
Computer Science - 97 (Midterm)


NOTE:
I have received an offer of admission to McMaster for Computer Science and UOG for Software Engineering.

Please share opinions on which university which university has the best program.

waterloo is the best for comp sci ofc.
But since you have to chose between McMaster, Guelph and UofT.
I would definitely go to UofT comp sci program.
However, if you want an engineering degree and to be recognized as a "Professional Engineer" later on in your life, i suggest McMaster :D

You did not complete your AIF. I don't think you'll be getting an offer of admission from Waterloo at all. You have to complete your AIF to get an offer of admission to Waterloo. Also, your English mark is really low, but the AIF is a bit more important.

From your choices, I would say U of T CompSci. Most reputable out of the choices.

Go with UofT. I really doubt youre gonna get the alternative CS offer, although I had a friend who applied to coop CS last year and got regular CS instead cause his English was in the 60s, too.
