Waterloo Engineering "Deny"

A photo of loyolalax9 loyolalax9
Who has been rejected from a Waterloo engineering program and if so list your average. There are people with 90's who have been rejected and people with low 80's who have been accepted.. which is deffinitely not right .. My average was an 88% and I was rejected to mechanical engineering co-op.

would they have automatically considered us for those low 80 avg eng programs? like management?

I think you had to include that on your AIF where it asked you to choose alternative programs. It said something like if you weren't admitted into your first choice then they would consider you for one of the alternate programs that you chose

80% average and rejected from Environmental Engineering. Anyone get into that program?

You might be thinking this guy is nuts because he has a 80% average and he wants to come to waterloo for engineering. Well in my AIF, I listed about 25 activities and 20 achievements. I played on 7/8 school teams this year and I also play rep hockey out of school. I also volunteer at 2 places every weekend and have a part-time job. (used to have 2 part-time jobs at once until I quit one of them). I am also a member of the school committee, environmental club, and link crew and Oh and yes, I only get about 4 hours of sleep a night on average if you were wondering.

F*CK YOU WATERLOO

Wow that's pretty impressive. The only EC's that I really had was playing hockey and lacrosse since grade 9-12 and writing all of the Waterloo Math competitions. Waterloo's unpredictable, I honestly don't know how they choose their students.

I go to Notre Dame in Ontario.
Link Crew is quite popular in many Ontario schools. Also in American high schools!

I'm actually glad Waterloo is doing their admissions this way. In my opinion, they should have students who are well rounded and can actually get along with other people in a work place. If you hire/admit nerds who study 24/7 and have no enjoyment, your workplace/university will be dead...

Also, people with < 80 in English should not even be admitted (Again this is my Opinion), because communication is key, especially in engineering. So if you hire someone who has English as their second language and can't speak it properly/write properly, your gunna end up with problems.

ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh im sick and tired of these kids who get 99% average by reading off a textbook and ending up going to a good university and contributing NONE of their knowledge. They then get a good job and go back to china/wherever the F**k they came from -_-




If that's the case then they should atleast be specific on thier admission requirements..my marks ranged around low 90s o high 80s with 87 in english. That should be good enough for being an engineer as you are saying.

Oh well, now that the waiting has finally stopped, what universities is everyone going to? I'm stuck between Mac and Western, and I am very interested in both of the engineering management programs offered at the two schools where it's an accelerated MBA. Any advice?

Okay, first off I completely disagree with you about the English thing. Just because someone gets less than an 80 in English does not mean they can't communicate or write properly. A grade on a piece of paper has no reflection on what you're capable of.

Second, that last thing you mentioned was completely uncalled for..

I didn't get into Software Engineering. Although I did get an alternate offer to computer science co-op.

On another note, I agree with merm123.

First point about getting rounded people and people that aren't socially incapable, I agree... though only to a certain extent...

Secondly, so what if someone decides to study 24/7? its their own prerogative... they can do whatever they want. If they want to study 24/7 to get a mark that would make their applicant attractive... why not... you shouldn't complain when you don;t have the dedication to study 24/7 (I assume... apologize if wrong... though if I'm wrong, you are being hypocritical)

Third, why not? English at grade 12 level hardly help determine one's true communication and writing skills. Its more analytical and I do not think Shakespeare and reading fiction help improve professional communication skills (writing skills maybe)... This is the reason why I support written entrance exams and interviews like what they do for Waterloo AFM and Waterloo Architecture

Lastly, this paragraph is just... uncalled for... you're sick of kids getting 99% average by reading off of a textbook... you ahve the same textbook, you have the same teacher, you have the internet as a resource... why are you not getting 99%? Oh and, who told you people go back to their home countries. And who do you think you are saying "china or wherever the f**k they came from"? Typical ethnocentric bastard who care less about other races other than their own. Do you have a problem with foreign people? If so, going back to your point of communication... if you're so good at communication why do you have a problem with working with foreign people...
