To be honest, there is a chance but it isnt that great. Mid 80s is what they ask for and Computer Science is pretty competitive. If you have a really good AIF, I think 80 would be enough. So if your AIF is good, then you should be able to get in. People have gotten in with 83 in the past but i think they wait very long, given Regular instead of Coop, or have good AIFs.

I think you'll get accepted. Your math marks are good enough, and english doesn't matter that much. You'll probably get a late offer.

I've heard that they prefer 80%+ in English. No idea if that's true, just what I've heard.

Oof, your marks are severely in the low end.

How did you do on the Euclid and CCC? If you get in, it will probably be due to those 2 contests as well as your AIF.

The average 2 years ago was mid to high 80's, with that being said it's going to be very hard to get in with that average. If you had a great AIF and good EC's then that may help your case. If you do get an acceptance it will most likely be around mid May. Good luck with your acceptance! Also, try to pull your marks up for finals.

There is a discussion about this in another thread, with an ex UW CS student. He may have more insight than we would so try talking to him.
