You're in. For sure. I'd say you're over-qualified.

To get into Schulich:

1. Have a high average, 90+ - so you're good.
2. Many mediocre EC's, or few but impressive EC's - again, you're good.
3. Relatively unique and well written answers for the essay questions.

In my experience Schulich was the easiest to get into out of the top tier business schools ( being Schulich, Ivey, & Queen's.) And I use the word 'easiest' very loosely as I am basing it on the acceptance I received first...

*Random schpeel*
This could be wrong however because the order of the acceptances does not guarantee the rank of the applicant - it could be random. Meaning that I could have gotten into the first round at Schulich but been towards the bottom of the acceptance pool, or I could receive and offer from Queens or Ivey and be towards the top... random.

ANYWAYS, as long as you keep a high average, manage your EC's, and don't write awful essays you should be fine.

Why are you aiming so low with your credentials? You should at least aim for Queen's/McGill. Ideally, you should be looking to get into Ivey.

I wouldn't consider Schulich aiming low... it's definitely in the same category as Ivey, Queen's, and McGill...

Thanks :)
Ideally I would apply to Ivey, Queen's and McGill but I should mention that I have Arab parents, so I can't live on residence anywhere (I live in Toronto).
I'll still apply to those universities and hopefully, if I get accepted, my parents could reconsider :)

Your credentials seem great. Keep up the good work! Good luck with your applications next year!

Let me know if you have any questions about Schulich. I really enjoyed my experience here, having to complete the first year. The opportunities I am getting are incredible (for example, got a chance to meet and interview CEOs of the 3 Big 4 firms) and I can't wait for next year!

Schulich BBA > Queen's/Desautels Bcom, just in my opinion though.

Why do you see Schulich as 'aiming low' ?

Schulich is most definately not better than Queens. The order goes Queens = Ivey>Schulich

Nope, do some research first. Queen's is considered to be equal to, if not superior to Ivey and both are considered superior to Schulich. Those rankings only apply for undergraduate however. But please do not spread misinformation.

Misinformation? When someone asks me which I think is best I'd honestly say it's between Schulich and Ivey. When I see someone describing Schulich as "aiming low" and below QC, I'll correct them.

Either way, we have our own opinions and I respect yours, but it isn't worth arguing over.

While Schulich isnt aiming low, it is pretty much a fact that for undergraduate, it is lower than QC

@Tasteh LOL are you kidding me? that first link you posted put rotman in the top 3, ahead of Ivey, so clearly thats not a credible source. Secondly, Schulich, Ivey and Queens are all top tier undergrad programs, neither of them can be definitively placed above the other 2 - they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. from what I've seen, there are no official undergrad business rankings, so unless you've actually been through all 3, you cant claim that one is better than the others. Obviously you are the kind of person that gives queens students the stereotype of being ignorant and stuck up.

Firstly, about the Rotman ranking, it actually can be considered a more quality education than Ivey because of the fact that you don't have to take something you may not enjoy for 2 years, plus the trying to cram 4 years worth of information into 2 years.

Secondly, I did not intend to offend anyone, and I apologize, but at the same time, regardless of what I said, making baseless claims about a group of people is just as rude and ignorant.
