Waterloo application and summer school?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
I want to get in to the business and computer science program at Waterloo. I hear that they deduct 1% of your average for every summer school course you take (source). Do they take off 1% if the grade 12 summer school course I'm taking is *not* part of my top 6?

Also, say if I make the Canadian IOI team in my grade 12 year, does it help my university or scholarship applications? Note, IOI team is not announced until the middle of May.

Probably. I think your best bet for acceptance is to apply really early--we're talking as soon as applications are open. Early acceptance standards tend to be a bit less competitive.

Very yes! Especially for UW CS.

I'm sorry, but I forgot to mention that the IOI team is not announced until middle of May, would that be too late?

No idea. I just know that the IOI is regarded very highly here.
