Do you think I could get into a good business program?
Hey, guys, I was wondering if I could get into a good business program with an 84% average and a decent amount of EC'a which I most often was the chief manager?
By good business programs I mean Laurier, Waterloo, Ryerson, Guelph.
I'm not looking to apply to Ivey, Queens, Rotman, Schulich or any school like that.

First Year Accounting and Financial Management Student (Waterloo AFM)
Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's. 

ahhhh AFM is sending out offers on Monday and I'm super nervous. 

Do they spread out all their offers throughout the week or is it all in one day?????

Waterloo AFM- How do my chances look?
I will have a 92.5  average with an 84 in English and 85 in Advanced Functions but a mark in the 90s for Calculus. I am the Finance Coordinator of Green Initiative Canada, Treasurer of Environmental Council, Delegate to Model United Nations, Peer Tutor, President of the Me to We Club, and have been a member of the Kumon Program for 11 years. Awards include A national award (ranked 1 out of 332 students throughout Canada for an Advanced Achievement in Kumon Mathematics), Outstanding Contribution to the Enviro Council, and French Honour Roll and Regular Honour Roll, and Completed the Kumon Math and Reading Award (first person at my centre to do so!)  How do my chances look? Please be honest, Waterloo is my first choice, btw I have not done the AFMAA yet I did not apply for early acceptance!! And no subjects were done outside of day school! And please reply without being rude lol don't think it's that hard! EDIT: I WROTE THAT I RECEIVED A 64 IN ENGLISH PREVIOUSLY, WHEN I REALLY GOT AN 84 MY BAD!!!
My life is over - Please respond Waterloo AFM
Hey y'all, 

So I received an 84 in English and an 85 in advanced functions but my top 6 is about a 93, so does this hinder my chances because of my English and advanced mark. My calc mark will be somewhere in the 90s. Please help!!!! DO they look at individual marks?
Schulich Learning Outcome Failed
So I added an extra word in one of my paragraphs that should not have been there and now I am so scared that I will get rejected for the stupid mistake. I have a 93 average and good extracurriculars. 

Please help! Schulich is my dream school! 
Queen's PSE and Waterloo AIF
Any current students in the program that are willing to help a Grade 12 student edit their PSE and supplementary, AIF and give advice? I am applying to Queen's Commerce and AFM for Waterloo!
Hey, so I applied to 7 different programs and I assume my grade 12 average will end up being a 92+ most likely a 92.8 (top 6) I applied to: 
Queen's Commerce
Waterloo AFM
Laurier BBa
Laurier business and financial math (double degree) 
McMaster (as backup) Do you think with a mark perspective I am okay for all of them. I think my ec's are good and I am currently doing my supplementary. 

Grade 12 Marks 
Advanced Functions - 88/89 (Projected) 90 (maybe for the exam) 
Calculus- second semestar but I assume high 80s, but I am trying for a 90!
Religion-99 (assume second semestar) - EASY
International Business (second semestar 96) - EASY
Families in Canada (second semestar) - 98- EASY , took these bird courses on purpose!
Also because I really want to go to Waterloo I made sure that I didn't private school or summer school any courses!
Advanced Functions
I'm freaking out, so I'm at an 84 and my goal is a 90 and we only have 2 months left. We are going to have our Unit 5 Quiz on Wednesday and we have 5,6,7,8 left but unit 8 we may not have any assessments for it. I'm so close to a 90, and I really want it. Is it possible to get my mark up 5.5% since to get a 90 i only need an 89.5, would you say it's possible with hard work and determination before finals.
Queen's Commerce
So I have good extracurriculars that show leadership both in school and within my local community, however one thing I am lacking is awards. I have gotten awards in Kumon for completing the program, as well as an award from my council for being the most contributing member, but i know these are very poor. Does this put me at a disadvantage because most of my extracurriculars don't provide awards. Thanks
Wow I just realized how bad my marks are for midterms is it possible to get them up for finals 
AF-83 Goal-90
English- 85 Goal 88
Challenge and Change- 86 Goal 95 (I'm gonna speak to my teacher about this because there may be an issue and I have also asked for extra credit to bring my mark up) 

Am I able to get my marks up to these by finals. 
AF-83 Goal-90
English-85 Goal-88
Do you think it's possible for this to happen by finals so in about three months? I plan to working EXTREMELY hard and I've gotten a tutor for AF so that I'm able to get 7% up especially with the exam. People have said midterms are only 30-35% of the course because of exams and stuff so I was wondering if it was possible? 
Hey, so currently I'm at an 85% in English and my goal is an 86 which i think is possible since I still have 3 months left of first semester, anyways, I was wondering if that would be enough for certain schools like Rotman, Schulich, Queen's Commerce, or Waterloo AFM?
