Waterloo Mathematics. What chances do i have? (help!)

A photo of link link
I'm really worried that i might not get accepted to Waterloo for Mathematics, Honours. I believe the cut off was low 80s, but i'm just paranoid that a lot of people are going to apply and drive the cutoff up

here are my marks
Calculus: 93
Chemistry: 96
Advance Func: 85
English: 75
Data Management: 87
Biology: 76

the average is 85.3

So what chances do i have of being accepted? All opinions are valued :D

Sorry for applying and driving the cutoff up then hahaha
But I honestly believe you should be fine. Your marks are decent, Biology and English wasn't that great but your average isn't bad. I think you just haven't been accepted yet because you're close to (but still above) the cut off.
But don't worry, I'm sure you'll get in. =D

You should be fine. Just keep in mind that Waterloo sends out most of their acceptances for Math Programs in May.

Also, I'm prety sure they wait to see a mark for all 3 pre-requisites (Eng, Calc, AF) before they send out acceptances so if they don't have some of those marks then that would be another reason you haven't gotten an offer yet.

Just relax though - you're marks are dsefinitely competitive.

They aren't going to count your Bio mark as your top 6 right? Is it required for math :\
LOL

I don't think you'll make it. The cut-off is said to be an 89-90 this year (from what I heard from my guidance councilor). I had a 97 in calc, 95 in advanced functions, but a low 73 in English. My average is an 87 and I was rejected. But I didn't have any worthy EC's, so if you do, you might just make it.

I think your marks are decent but not high enough to guarantee you a spot. Your AIF will probably be a very important deciding factor.

You had a higher average than me and were still rejected before me? I find that hard to believe, were your ECs that bad?

I already had my midterm marks and first semester marks handed in by mid-march, so they were reviewing my application much earlier than the norm.

Read my last post, and I only had the volunteering I did to complete the hours needed as my only EC.

I have an 84 average, but ive also done many extra curriculars and have over 300 community service hours, but if the cutoff is 89-90 im not going to get in.

The problem is not getting in. It is staying in. PS: You should be fine. Unless you applied for one of the specialist programs (e.g. business-related ones among others), in which case, we have a roll of the dice...
