McMaster Last Chance

A photo of thelakeshow thelakeshow
mac has been first on my ouac list and my average is an 80 on the dot. i thought that if i left it as first choice, mac would take that into consideration. however i recently ready on a forum thread that mac is sending out offers to people who put it as their last choice on ouac and someone with an 80.5 average got accepted and mac was 4 out of 5 on their list. i just switched the order to mac as 4 out of 5 on ouac for me. it takes one business day to process and someone just said theyre making final decisions tomorrow. do you think im too late and stupid for switching the order?

Are you serious? Think this through properly. The guy who said this was desperate to get in the program, therefore he spread the dumbest rumors.

Order will not matter for acceptance. Laurier BBA is better anyways.

If you meet their standards, you will get an acceptance. At an 80%, your chances are slim. Anyways, you need to maintain a 82% final for Laurier BBA, so step up your game/

Got into Laurier BBA with an 80 average? Highly doubtful.

I can tell you officially (I work at McMaster) that it does not matter where you list McMaster on the OUAC application in terms of whether or not you receive an offer of admission.

Hello!

Since you work at Mac I was wondering if you could give me some insight. I was accepted in March for Social Science I at McMaster, but since a few days ago I have found a new interest in becoming a CA. It's too late to apply to an accredited business program now, but not too late to switch over. I was accepted with an 85.5 average and I currently have an 88.5% average, 87% if I add in maths. I have taken Advanced Functions and Data Management where I received 85% in both (It wont move!) and will be graduating with 9 M/U credits. Do you think it is possible to switch so late in the process?

Please and thank you
