Who else got rejected by Waterloo AFM??

A photo of ninaaftermath ninaaftermath
Well... I just got receted by AFM-PA and I am in sort of a shock... My average is 90+ , i have excellent AIF and did fairly well on AFMAA. My friends with lower avg (low to mid 80s) and poor ECS have gotten in. I just don't think it's fair! I've gotten offers from Queen's commerce and Schulich.

Why are people so surprised they didn't get in? Suck it up. You weren't good enough. Life goes on. Don't compare yourself to others. It's one of the hardest programs to get into.

I am perfectly OK with saying that I did not get invited to the AFMAA (poor Grdae 11 Eng mark) and even if i did i probably wouldn't have got in.

Was it even your first choice?
I'd feel bad for you if it was, but if it wasn't... does it matter? Plus it saves you the headache of debating between it and your second choice.

Hmm, Yeah same here my buddy got accepted with a lower average than me. But i know that it is because of his strong literature skills, unlike myself.

However, I have not been rejected just no response from waterloo afm-pa.

I also got rejected 90 average, tonnes of EC, I think pretty good AFMAA. People in my school with lower averages and few ECs got in. Got accepted to Queen's.
I know exactly how you feel ninaftermath. I'm very upset right now, Waterloo was my first choice.

Marks don't mean everything. The AFMAA is marked subjectively. If you didn't get in, your essays did not meet their "standards."

How much is the AFMAA weighted anyways?
Where are you going ?

From what I've heard, it's worth quite a bit (not really sure on the numbers).

Also, if you were expecting an alternate offer for AFM-FM because you didn't get into PA, you must take in account that people who applied to FM gets first priority, even if you're more qualified.

As to where I'm going, I've narrowed down to Queen's and AFM.

That is exactly why Waterloo was my first choice! Since co-op could help with the finances.

I really felt good about it. I thought I had a better chance writing it on the spot, rather than ahead of time, like Queen's and Schulich. I guess they didn't like my writing style.
Do you think they would give me my mark if I called, or should I just suck it up.

I guess if you really want to know why you got rejected it's worth a try. You've got Queen's though! It's a great program!
