UT, UW, Mcgill, which one is the most seletive for engineering majors?

A photo of jasonty9 jasonty9
i heard that people get in ut with low mid 80s... is that true?
seems like mcgill has the highest standard though.

Also, anybody knows why engineering offers are giving out so late???
there have been plenty of business offers from queens uwo and mcmaster!!!!
I sent my second document to the ut admission office and it has been 4 weeks they still have't opened my package yet!!

You can look at the data.

Here is McGill's 2011 minimums (it varies by engineering major, as low as 80 for Mining and as high as 92.5 for Mechanical) and of course varies each year somewhat: http://www.mcgill.ca/applying/standards/ontario/

Here you can look at the stats for Ontario schools and look at the distribution of entering grades for engineering.

Queens and U of T have slightly different distributions, but their means are 89%, and its fairly close to the median. Means and medians are not cut offs. UW has a mean of about 85%.

Click on this link, scroll down and click on school, then choose 'entering averages by program' under the admissions tab.

It's just that McGill only considers marks, so naturally they are going to have the highest cutoffs.
I think engineering offers are given later because there are more prerequisites and whatnot. For example, I already have 6 grade 12 credits (I had 4 from last year) so I have a "top 6" for a business program (english, math/calculus) so they could accept me whenever. But I still have yet to take physics and chemistry so no engineering program is going to want to accept me (unless my average was like 95+ or something, which it's not). That being said, offers have been given out already by some schools.
