definitely not top teir.. but its where my marks fall

A photo of bdish bdish
Hey guys,

Lets be honest, I don't have the greatest marks in the world. I am expecting myself to end with and average in the low to mid- 80's, which won't get me anywhere "top-tier", or at least I think. what do you guys think the next best would be, my choices are

Carleton- Bcomm or int.Business program
McMaster- Bcomm
Laurier- BBA (maybe a long shot)
Brock- BBA co-op

thanks, it would help A LOT, its a very hard decision

If you are within 3% of Laurier's cutoff (likely 86, although it is mildly possible that it goes up to 87 or so), they will look at your ABS (your ECs and some random written responses) and you may still get an offer. If you can get in, I would recommend Laurier.

Otherwise, you are competitive for all of the others listed.

Most people would probably rank them McMaster, Carleton then Brock. But there's not a huge difference between them (maybe a bigger gap between 2 and 3) so take into consideration cost, social life, residences, atmosphere, etc. of these schools. There's no sense going to McMaster because you think it's slightly better than Carleton and Brock even though you hate the campus (just an example). Visit the campuses, look at the costs, get some more information on the courses offered and the programs, and make a decision.

Also keep in mind that Carleton and I believe Brock have co-op (although Mac does have 1-year internships and stuff).

Hope that helps.

Laurier accepted a bunch of 84s last year. I'm guessing their cut off is about 82-83

No, it was either people not knowing how to calculate their averages or people who got in with the ABS.

The cutoff was published for 2010 as 86, and I'm not sure whether or not it was published yet but it was confirmed that the Laurier cutoff was 86 again last year (despite rumpled of it being higher).
