Worrying about Laurier? [please read]

A photo of universityapplier universityapplier
I heard the BA econ and accounting cutoff was 82, i have an 83.833333
what are my chances of getting in?
and when should i expect the offer?
i also included an ABS form, and I was wondering
there are only 160 seats for this program, does this mean i gotta wait till people who applied for BBA and got the alternate (econ and accounting) decline it?
I am really worried about getting in, do you think I stand a chance?

Don't worry. At all.

As long as you are above the cutoff (which you safely are) you will get in. Plus you handed in your ABS form, so you are doubly secure.

Acceptances should be the end of this week or maybe next week. They will give out more offers than enrollment, knowing that as long as their guess of ___% choose Honours Ec they will end up with ~160 people.

Sorry, that was a little unclear. Ready for some math?

Honours Economics enrollment is 160, so Laurier wants 160 students, which is variable A

X number of people applied to HE.

Y number of people will get rejected from BBA and get an alternate offer to HE. q% of people will accept.

Z is the number of people who applied to HE who will be accepted, with r% accepting

A = (qY) - (rZ)

Something like that.

tl;dr: more offers than enrollment as they plan for people to reject
