92.3 average first semester including English, Functions, Comp Science and Accounting. Too early to tell for second semester. At the moment I have Economics, Physics, Calc and Data.

I didn't really get a chance to state all my EC's.. which sucks but I included student council, varsity sports team, and community initiatives and four work experiences. I had a typo on one of my essays though which will probably minimize my chances. So I'm kind of just letting go of the QC dream and hoping to get into McGill Commerce.

Question: I also applied for bursary so I had a chance to talk about my EC's in more detail.. will they review my bursary application alongside my pse and supp essays or no?

No, there are many chancellor's nominees who have not been accepted yet. I imagine that you must have written your essays very well or had ECs that Queen's really liked. Otherwise, they have stated that they do not begin acceptance until April.

queens selection process is a bit weird. the way they give out acceptances is that they would rather have 1 or 2 students from each differernt school. so basically, if you have 2 people in your school with higher averages that applied to queens commerce, you got no chance.

and queens does look at last names when giving out acceptances. there was a toronto star article a few years ago "queens does not like smartest and brightest, but the bestest and whitest".

unfortunately im asian and this exact same thing happened to me last year.

just thought of giving you guys a heads up.

You think that Queen's rejected you last year because you have an Asian surname? You can't be serious?

partly yes. there was another asian girl at my school who had better EC's and marks than i did, she got it. at the same time, there was a white girl with a much lower average and almost no EC's, and got it.

im pretty sure if i was the only asian who applied, i would've gotten in. so partly yes.
how else do you explain queens commerce having such a limited number of asians?

i didnt quite believe it until i read the toronto star article a couple of months ago.

Change your last name to Smith and get facial re-constructive surgery then.

Don't make excuses for not getting in or you won't ever mature.

chill, if you want to go into fianace or accounting, an asian last name actually might help now. complete differernt story 10 years ago.

queens was no where near the top of my list, and even if it was, my life isnt going to end because i wasn't accepted.


my point is to the you out there wondering if you can get in to queens, as long as you are the strongest at your school, you'll be fine. if you have a 97, and there are 3 people with 99s, you probably wont get in.
