Engineering Admission Cutoffs

Yeah, right now as of midterm i have a 90.67 average (bascially 91) and it'll will go up to around 92-93. However is a 92 average competitive enough to get into Waterloo Computer  enginering nd Queen's and McMaster and UofT  Computer engineering? My extra cirriculars are better than most so would that help my chances ?

Hey there!
If you really want to be competitive in computer sciences it all depends on the university. For instance, Waterloo university is well-known for their Bachelors of Computer Sciences and to be considered in that program, one must obtain a minimum of 95% and excellent EC's to be 'competitive' 

It's more or less the same for Mcmaster, except Mcmaster is more heavily focused on grades. Aim for above 95% and you'll be good there :)

I don't know about UofT or Queen's, sorry!

If you can keep a 92 average for the rest of the year and have good extracurriculars for your PSE. You'll have a pretty good chance of getting into queens!

OMFG I HATE threads like this!!!! What is my chance of admission to this program with this average? So annoying... Maybe if you just studied and got high marks, you would actually get into uni instead of wasting time on here!

You totally can get into Queens eng with a 92, just write a solid PSE and you’ll be fine! I have a thread on my account on queens eng if you have any other questions about it, I’d be happy to help :) good luck!

Hi, I applied to Waterloo computer engineering and U of T TrackOne (a bit more competitive than ECE) last year with about a 93% average and was admitted with very strong extra curriculars, I think you should be okay because it's not as competitive as some of the other programs at Waterloo. U of T also has a pretty holistic admissions process. If you can bring up your marks to 92-93 and make sure you write excellent student profiles, you're in a good position. When you're writing your supp apps, make sure to mention the geographical scope or total number of competitors in any awards you mention. Mentioning numbers in general is pretty helpful (e.g. number of volunteer hours, total hours committed per extra curricular), including any info about your class rank if it's good (<=2-3% of your graduating class).
