I myself accepted mechanical engineering at UW and I can not wait and I'm so pumped for university! woo!

Congrats to all who have been accepted!

I'm looking forward to being away from my parents, making new friends who are more like me, and being more independent. =)

Electrical. 88% average, and I'm from one of their 'Favoured' schools. It's just that UW admissions are a bunch of clowns.

I applied to mechatronics and still waiting. These are my final top 6 gr. 12 marks incl. prerequisites. My top 6 average is 93.67%.

Advanced Functions: 90
Physics: 95
Chemistry: 100
Calculus: 90
English: 87
Aboriginal Governance(M class): 100

My schools marks are inflated which worries me to be honest. My friends got into electrical and nano with over 96 averages in March.

Cannot wait to be in Waterloo University next year! I'm still hoping that I can maintain some semblance of life despite the mountain of coursework engineers get. XD

Anyways, I'm also heading to the May 28th event to check out some more of the residences. :)

yeah this whole admission average discrepancy thing is really throwing me off.
how important is the AIF, or do you think it varies from program to program?

I think depends on your average more then anything. If your boderline getting in your AIF may mean the difference between getting in and not getting in. So to answer your question i guess it does depend upon the program. But really is worrying and analyzing this going to change anything now?

yea ill be at the may 28 event too... how is it working exactly? do engineers have a specific thing? or is it just all over the place as in you decide what you want to do?

and to those who are currently scared, dont worry! as long as you have a high 80 youre pretty much guaranteed. I got in with these marks:
84 english
90 advanced functions
85 chemistry
95 communications tech

so dont worry people!!

EDIT: also i need confirmation on this. a UW engineering student told me that the admissions committee are becoming more select with the students they accept for engineering due to an influx in admitted students in the previous year? I heard they gave too many acceptances and they underestimated the amount of people that would accept their offer... as in they had over 300 more people accept than they anticipated.

yeah i want to go off and just look around outside of the set activities as well.
I JUST WANNA PICK A RES, MAN.

about the average thing, i just find it weird that people are still waiting on acceptances with averages higher than mine.
