UW Mechatronics [ International student ]

A photo of fact713 fact713
Hello everyone!
So I'm an international student applying for Mechatronics Engineering at UW and would appreciate if you guys shed some light on a couple of things.

Are international and domestic applications processed separately?

Do they use any kind of a correlation scale for transcripts?(not IB, not A-level)

Note:
Feel free to share your thoughts on UW Mechatronics + international students (applicants) stuff as well :cyclops:

I believe domestic and intl students are processed separately.

I know that Mechatronics is uber hard for domestic applicants to get into so I would assume it would be very competitive for intl students. Nonetheless, they allocate spaces for intl students. Hope you get in, best of luck :)

I'm not an expert on the program. The UW Mechatronics program is fairly new at the university, and as Stella said, fairly competitive. It seems to be a bit of a combination of Mechanical, ECE and SE/CS, and of course, the co-op program gives the whole degree a nice touch.

So there have to be quotas for int'l students, right?

I know lots of people saying Tron is highly competitive (moreover, the website says "individual selection from high-80s", nanotech only has the same I guess), but I have been reading this forum for ~2 months and only seen 5-10 people applying for Mechatronics ( not a reliable indicator though ).
I have the impression that CS, SE and ECE attract way more applicants :study: (please, correct me if I get it wrong)

That's why it's my first choice
