How were your grade 11 marks? And it really depends on how well you did your essays as well, those count for a big chunk.

Also would have been really helpful if one of your 90s was in English, rather than sports and entertainment marketing let's say. (Since it's a pre-req, a very important one might I add).

But you're definitely in striking distance if not there already. Just destroy 2nd semester and hopefully your essays!

My grade 11 marks were pretty good.
What are they looking for in my essays and answers (for UTSC)? How would I show my personality and "something special" to make them accept me?

As for English.... There's no way I can get 90s in that class... I'll try my best to get as high as I can.

Depends, every person has their own style of writing. I know for me, my essay made me seem competent, but most importantly genuine and a good samaritan. On the other hand, my friend made herself look professional, hardworking, and related adjectives. So really depends on which style suits you more!

So would you say that I should just write how I usually write and just show my true self?

Also, for UTSC Management, should I chose co op or regular? Regular is safer and easier to get in to, while co op is definitely better.

Your Grade 11 marks don't matter.

With your current marks and ECs you should be able to get into all of your choices, I don't see why not. Your predicted average should be somewhere around 92, and if you can keep that up for the entire year you'll be good for ALL of the programs you listed (Including Schulich). However, put some work into your essays for your applications. That is also a deciding factor, but it isn't hard.

Do the two reference letters for Schulich have to be from the teacher/supervisors for the activities that I wrote on the activity log? What I mean is that do the letters have to prove the things I wrote on the activity log, or can they just be from a teacher, but doesn't prove any activities?

The letters have to prove two activities on your activity log. As the application states, you need reference letters that substantiate two activities in your activity log. If you can't find the teacher who supervised the activity, maybe try finding a teacher that knows you participated in that activity and knows what you did.

The thing is that I usually participate with activities outside of school....

Then get letters from whoever supervises those activities outside of school.
