Questions about UT engineering rejection/alternate offer

A photo of Zhangt94 Zhangt94
Hi guys, im new to this thread and just have a quick question for you all who got any alternate offers from the engineering faculty. i checked my portal this morning and saw that under application my status was complete, and under decision was refused. I was wondering if this meant that i was straight up rejected from UT, or are there any possibilities of given an alternate offer to one of my other choices for eng since i saw many people in this forum given alternate decisions. If so, would this come through an email? or would it have just said so on my quest had they given me an alternate offer? or is there the possibility of some sort of a waiting list?

im an alberta student with an 86% average for those wondering, i know my mark is bordering the cutoff xD any feedback is appreciated!

i don't think you can get an alternate choice unless you have applied to a different factuality, not completely sure though

Unfortunately, I think you were rejected from U of T engineering. If they had given you an alternate offer, it would have listed the program instead of refused. I applied to track one, and got an alternate offer to mechanical, and under "decision" it said mechanical engineering.

And no, you don't have to apply to another faculty to get an alternate offer.

Seeing as it is only April, I think you should wait until May to see if you get an alternate offer, but I really don't know to be honest. Can I ask which core 8 you applied to, because 86 should get you into the most except engsci.

Wow you got into waterloo chem engineering with an 86, that gives me sooooooo much hope. I also have an 86 average and i live in Ontario so hopefully i get in too

They had out three times more offers than the number of people they are expecting because they know that everyone will apply to at least three schools.

Request for re-appeal of your application, considering your average is pretty high, they may accept you in the upcoming wave. But how is your Calculus, Physics and Advance Functions marks?

is it still possible that they may reconsider my application? i have tried to email them but dont know how effective doing that will be seeing how they'd probably get tons of similar emails

my marks were (alberta curriculum)

english-84
physics-88
calc-82
math-82
chemistry-92

i guess my math marks really pulled down my chances..

Your marks are pretty good, you still have chance. Instead of emailing them, I think you should call them and they'll probably give you information for how you can get your application reconsidered. If I remember correctly, usually they'll tell you to fill out a form or something and will ask you to mail it to them. Be sure to do it fast because I think the second wave of acceptance is soon.

sighh, all this university stuff is just so stressful..i really want to go to UT, at the same time the offers ive gotten from the other schools are also approaching their acceptance and residence deadlines. Its a really horrible feeling to be rejected, hope none of you guys out there have to experience it xD
