Will I get into Waterloo for Computer Engineering?

A photo of Rulerofnofear Rulerofnofear
My marks:

Adv. Func. - 93 (done)
Physics- 92 (done)
English -85 (done)
Calc. - 95
Accounting - 95
Chemistry - 76 (done)

I was basically a terrible student last year so I am repeating/ repeated most of the prerequisites for engg. I applied to Mac, Western, Waterloo, Carleton, and Ryerson. I got into Carleton for Comp. systems engg. and Ryerson for Comp. Engg so far.
I'm pretty sure I'll get into Mac and Western as well.
I'm a bit worried abt Waterloo.

Will Waterloo send me an offer at least in May? What's your take?
I cleaned up my act since September 2011 and you people can see the change in me (my marks last year were forgettable)...I am working hard and also part of clubs...I have been a part of various clubs throughout high-school..

Hoping to hear positive replies!...

If you have been repeating grade 12 courses then I think you won't get into Waterloo...because of their policy on repeats. Look it up on their website...I think they do this only with their engineering program

sorry if I disappointed you :(

they dont have that bad of a policy for repeats (reduction of 3-5% MAYBE).... you could still make it! I think UofT has an even worse policy about repeats.. not completely sure tho, did u apply to uoft?
I also hear that if you give them a really amazing and mind blowing response on the aif for repeated courses, it plays a significant role in ur admission :)
