What are my chances of getting into Waterloo

What are my chances of getting into Waterloo?

I applied for Waterloo's honours science and life science.
I'm a return student/5th year student
I'm currently sitting at a 83.5% average with the following coureses:

English 83% (repeated course)
Data Management 83% (repeated course)
World issues 88%
Advanced functions 80% ( summer school)

As of now i'm taking grade 11 chem, grade 12 bio, and calc

My bio mark is likely to be at 70-73% for mid term but i'll likely end with an 80%
My calc mark is at 63% but likely will be around 70% by mid term

Therefore with the addition of bio and calc my average will be around 79-80%

Is there any hope for me studentawards?

I think Waterloo penalizes for repeated courses.. :S
I remember reading it before, but it might have been another university..
Pretty sure it's Waterloo, though.
I think with a 79-80.. you're pretty borderline.
I would say you'd need at least a low to mid 80s to be guaranteed admission.

So would they penalize my average for both the repeated courses or just once?

Nevermind - I just looked it up.
It's just Engineering that penalizes for sure..

Yepp, I did.
But I'm from out of province (BC) so acceptances come rolling in any day.
I got admitted mid-January I do believe.
Are you from Ont?
I hear that the next round of acceptances are coming out in Aprilish.
