How likely am I to get into Waterloo for Coop Compsci? Fall 2012

Compared to other peoples' marks here, mine aren't that high.

Advanced Functions: 83 Final
International Law: 84 Final
English: 89 Final
Computer Science: 85 Final

Average: 85

I have only done these 4 Grade 12 classes so far and they are all University
Level.

And I know i shouldn't underestimate the class but I am confident that
I can achieve around the specified mark.

Next Semi
Data Management: 92 (Probably)
Calculus And Vectors: 85 (Probably)
Physics: 85 (Probably)

AIF
To be honest, my AIF is decent at best. I haven't joined many clubs
and I'm not on the student council or anything. I have a good amount
of reference though and I have participated in the CCC and the Math
Contests by Waterloo in the past and will again this year, but my mark,
forgot to ask last year, was probably nothing to brag about.

So how likely am I to get into Waterloo for Computer Science?
Also I was wondering if anyone knew other schools that are
known for Computer science other than UofT and UBC.

You definitley have a chance, just make sure your second semester mid-terms are high. Most people get either really high marks for mid-terms, or screw up and get really low marks. Just make sure you get the first. I think a safe average would be around 88+ for CS with decent EC`s.

Other CS programs, probably Mcgill or Mcmaster but Mcmaster requires Physics and Chem so.

Thanks. Ill probably apply to McMaster. You don't specifically need PHysics/Chem (You need 2 of the following Chem/Physics/Biology/Computer Science). Ill probably take a few easy courses like International Business and Data Managament.

Oh right sorry. Mcmaster`s requirement is really, really unique having you pick and choose from a list of a bunch of programs. Anyways, good luck on your application!
