How much does the ABS form for Laurier help?

A photo of Nanners Nanners
Hi All,

I am a grade 12 student with an average looking to be around 91-91.5% applying to the double degree math/BBA program and Laurier BBA program.

I am just curious on knowing whether the ABS truly benefits those who meet the estimated admission range as suggested on the Laurier website. Would a well written ABS form set me apart from the other applicants?

If you are above the cutoff for BBA, you will get in (86 or 87). If you fall within 3% of the cutoff, they will review your ABS.

I don't know exactly how it works for the DD. I'll let someone else answer that. It will help though.

If in doubt, fill it out.

It's not that hard to fill out. I would recommend just doing it.

What marks do you have now that you didn't get into Laurier BBA?

to be honest I have no idea cookiemonster.

Currently these are the marks I have that would be in my top 6:

Data Management 96
Advanced functions 90
Calculus 90
Morality 95
Philosophy 87 (Will be replaced with another mark in the 90's for midterm)
Grade 11 English 76 (Lookin to be mid 80's for grade 12 mid term)

That adds up to be around 89 average which is still good enough for BBA. My friend who also got early acceptance to Schulich iBBA didn't get an offer either...so maybe they haven't reviewed my application yet?

^ Well my friend's average was good enough to get an offer, and he just got his yesterday. Be patient I guess.

Yeah I'm not too worried about Laurier BBA. A bit for laurier DD.

Will Laurier review my ABS form despite being above the cut- offÉ
