How highly does Waterloo weight contest scores for Math/CA

Well my problem right now is that I don't think my average is high enough for the program (I have about a 93) however I think I have decent contest results (scoring top 2% on about 4 or 5 waterloo math contests). Recently I made the national student honor role on the CSMC. Is this enough to get me in>?

If you're that smart, why don't you do a different math/finance degree? Math/CA is 90% accounting. Unless you're super passionate about accounting (and if you are, I recommend getting a CMA, not a CA), you could do mathematical finance or something, which is more challenging, competitive, satisfying, and easier to get into.

Waterloo Math loves high school contest scores. If you have a 93% average, with top contest results, you have a very good shot at Math/CA.

As a former Math/CA student, and as Greygoose mentioned, do reconsider Math/CA if you're actually good or into math, the high admission average really makes the program seem way better than it actually is.
