Your marks are good enough for all of them. Low 90's are competitive for just about every business program and you are no exception. However, Queen's is a bit of a wild card and depends a lot on your overall presentation of the PSE.

P.S it makes me so very sad, but DECA is such a watered down EC. I would caution to say that it means very little.

First of all, you already have the marks for Laurier BBA, Rotman Commerce, and McMaster Business. You essentially will have at least 3 choices. I feel that you have enough extra-curriculars to get into Schulich and Queen's Commerce but it will all depend on how you express yourself in the supplementary. Queen's take their supplementary very seriously by observing your writing skills from your supplementary which is why the cutoff is relatively low for a top business school. For Schulich, 92 was a very safe mark to get into last year and it gave me the impression that they only seem to care about the marks as all of my friends who applied with a 91 average or above last year including me received a letter of admission.

However, with a 92, don't expect early acceptances except from Laurier and McMaster as Queens and Rotman seems to take their sweet time with acceptances last year lool and you need a 93-94% to get early admission

Best of Luck! Hope this helps!
