Noo anyone else get denied to Waterloo? lol

A photo of TotoSmith TotoSmith
Anyone get rejected this morning to honours math? I got denied with an 85.4 average and 90+ in calculus and english. Perhaps it was because of a low functions mark? Still find it kinda weird that I got rejected right before the euclid too...

:/ e-mail them asking for reconsideration after midterm? I don't see why schools reject before midterm, considering an average can go up a lot with 3/4 new marks :/
Was this on Quest or OUAC?

It was on quest. And I don't have midterms after January since my school is full year so yeah.... But it definitely feels weird haha. I mean I saw that someone on here got early acceptance into UW compsci with an 83 average so I was like I should be able to get in but I guess not.

If you dont mind, would you like sharing you Functions mark? I didnt get rejected yet but my Func mark is 83, and my calc mark will be about 87 at midterms.

80 on the dot :(
But I thought that my 90's in calc and english would sorta make up for that bad mark...

I guess that's still better than "deny" lol. They must really hate me to make me wait this long for a decision and then reject me days before the euclid haha. But good luck, I hope you get in!

In my opinion, it was fairly good. I thought it was well written and I had a few ec's. My ec's include coordinating a reading program at a library and working with various computer programs for my church. But yeah, Waterloo thought otherwise.

Ah, I see.
I'm starting to think that my AIF is kinda crappy in comparison to other AIFs. D:

oh that's not too bad I guess :P
Personally I don't feel as though my application fails in a significant way compared to others who applied to the same faculty so I'm still kind of mind boggled at this sudden rejection. But as I mentioned earlier, someone got into compsci with an 83 so you should be fine. Good luck!

Think of it as a blessing in disguise. Truth be told Waterloo really isnt that great. If I could do it all over again I would have not even applied to Waterloo, because Waterloo imo makes things unnecessarily hard. A lot of hs students kid themselves when they think they are ready for Waterloo(Math/CS and engineering that is), u only need to take a look at the number of dropouts to realize this. And from the looks of it u already got in UofT for Math so there is literally no trade-off of not getting accepted to UW. Not that UofT wont be as hard, I just think u will have a better time in Toronto. Plus where u did ur undergrad will matter very little once u actually start looking for work, trust me.

ahh well I guess ur right. UofT is still decent so I suppose it's okay. It's just a little annoying that they rejected me without even waiting to see if I could do well on the euclid. Are you currently a student at UW?

Waterloo also adjusts your mark based on what high school you went to.

Just a random question for anyone who may have an idea... is it unusual to be rejected from math this early and this close to the euclid? I mean it's not like my marks were way below the requirements and I thought that UW would at least give me a chance to show them how I could do on the euclid... I'm happy with the idea of going to UofT but I'm just having a bit of trouble trying to understand the timing of all this especially since it seems that I am the only one who has recently been rejected. Does anyone have any insight?

Im actually pretty dam surprised that you got rejected, imo just wait it out its probably a mistake or something. I'd say wait like a week or two after mid terms go in, and then call waterloo to find out for sure. gl
