can i still apply through ouac at laurier?

A photo of ac123 ac123
Hey guys, I applied to laurier bba initially, but my average is only 80.5% with my top 6 courses so I have a couple of questions.

I found out that the honours BA economics degree requires low 80's so do you think I can get in with this average?

Is it accredited with the CMA,CGA, CA institutes?

My main concern is getting into the Honours economics program so should I apply to this program on ouac at this point in time? or do u think i will get an alternate offer anyways?

and can I use my ABS form towards this instead of towards bba if i apply to it on ouac? (last date to make changes was april 16 for the abs form)

thanks

you have until may first. Laurier bba requires 86-87% and filling the ABS form will only give you a maximum of 3%.

Actually I don't think you have to. You should be considered for an alternate offers to Honours Economics if you aren't eligible for admission for the BBA program.

The cutoff for Laurier BA Economics is 82% but you might still be able to get into applied Econ as alternative offer, I also know one person last year who had 81.83 and got an alternative to BSc business technology management at Brandford or BA arts.

I second this.
I have a friend who applied for BBA, got alternate offer to Hons Econ.

I talked to the laurier admissions office on the phone and she said i have a fairly good chance at honours economics with a 80.5% average. I told her just to be safe I want to apply to honours econ on ouac and make it my first choice just so i can use my ABS form towards it too. Hopefully this will help increase my chances of getting this offer.

and she also said the laureir bba cut off as of now is 87%. Just letting u guys know who are curious. :)
