PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2012 5:26 pm   Post subject: Re: Admission Averages

Applied to:
UTSC Computer Science
UW Computer Science
UOIT Computing Science

Grade 12 - Final
Computer Science 85
Advanced Functions 83
International Law 85
English 90

Grade 12 - Midterm (Estimated)
Physics 90
Calc and Vectors 87
Data Management 95

Average So far 85.75
Estimated Avg 88.3 - 88.7 (Depending on uni)

AIF
3-4 clubs
Honour Roll
Laptop Program (Unique to my school)

Accepted So far
UOIT Computing Science

Im currently depressed because I think that the program may fill out before midterms, when the uni is actually
able to see my higher marks. I want to go to Waterloo Cs and UOIT is my bottom choice. However, i would not
ignore UOIT. The only thing wrong with it is the school's age.

I would expect them to send out a reasonable number of offers after midterms, I highly doubt the program would fill up so soon. (there's still like 2.5 months before you have to accept offers I think)

Last year, many of my friends received offers from universities after midterm marks (a couple of them had lost hope and were really surprised).

Admission average(s)
Individual selection from the mid-80s
Notes: Admission averages are based on previous years' entering classes. Your admission average is calculated using your top 6 Grade 12 U or M courses, or equivalent, including all required courses.

I wouldn't lose hope yet, your estimated average is high 80's and, like I said earlier, there's still over 2 months.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 21, 2012 11:29 pm   Post subject: Re: Admission Averages

can I ask something? because i'm really confused right now.

I'm hoping to go to UW CS..

and i thought i was sending them 6 grade 12 courses (including all required)

so i wasn't trying as hard till now (in grade 11 atm),

and my early term mark was pretty...bad especially english.



but one of my friend said that i apply around october~november,

so they put the most focus on the grade 11 marks..

the only grade 12 mark i got so far is advanced functions which i got 93 with final exam 97.

I was about to put in adv func, calculus, english, music, computer science, and physics or chemistry for the application

but.. i'm so confused.

i'm screwed if they see grade 11 marks more than early grade 12 marks.

is this true? and can someone explain the admission date and what marks they look? thank you T.T

(+)

i've been taking waterloo math contests and computing contests.
for pascal, i scored 134 and went on the honour roll on the website.
for cayley, didn't do as good but got a school champion medal.
for fermat, i forgot and missed it :/

and for canadian computing contest, last year, i got 45/75 (3 questions correct perfectly out of 5)
and this year, i think i got 64/75 (4 questions correct perfectly, and number 5... sort of.)

would this help me at all to get in to UW CS?

They look at your Gr 11 marks more than your grade 12? Then im screwed too. I've been dealing with religious issues since late grade 10, and have only studied for about 4 tests total in highschool. My average is 76 (Not done gr 11 yet). Man....

PostPosted: Thu Apr 26, 2012 8:30 pm   Post subject: Re: Admission Averages

I don't really need an early offer, i just want to get in next year. I plan on working like no tommorow next year, so hopefully they dont think im cheating or anything when my average goes up 15%

Thanks for the info.

PostPosted: Fri Apr 27, 2012 3:05 pm   Post subject: Re: Admission Averages

Okay, still no reply from Waterloo about Software, but I have been accepted to CS.

Average 91.33

Grade 11 marks (that matter)
Physics : 87
Math : 91
Computer Science : 98
English : 90
Chemistry : 89

Grade 12 marks (That matter)
Physics : 92
Advanced Functions : 92
Calculus : 94*
English : 91
Chemistry : 87
Computer Science: 92*

* = mid term mark

Computer science mark is low because I didn't understand some of the questions in the text... also there were questions on the history of computers on some of our tests... but now I am at (about) a 94.

Programming experience: A fair amount. - I know how to use Turing, Java, and C++ and I can make my way through Python and Javascript. I've played with Android development and I've used some game engines to make small games.

EC's: Reach for the Top, Senior Band, Percussion Ensemble, Computer Science "team" - boardwide winners of the ECOO, Math tutoring

Contests: I did meh on most of the Waterloo contests that I have done to date; as in 37 on the senior and on the Euclid I expect a 55 or so. On the CCC I scored 58 on the Junior, but I was able to get through 3 of the senior questions.

So yeah. That's it.

Tbh, i dont think you have much of a chance for Waterloo CS unless you have a good AIF. Ive been checking around and people
have like 90s and they are applying for computer science, not to mention that they are looking for mid 80s.

Good luck anyway. If you do not get accepted to UW, I recommend Carleton. Pretty good for CS. Why didnt you apply for UofT?

Gz on your offer for CS. Youll probably make if for SE too. Currently waiting for CS UW but I dont think its going to come
anymore.


Anyway guys, if you didnt know, Waterloo is doing their Math (Possibly Engineering around if not on) May 10. This
will probably be their last round for this year. Good luck to all.

I've been anticipating not receiving an offer from UW after I got my midterms, though on my AIF there's quite a few EC's, and I did "send them" (link/description) some side-projects, so you never know. I've been thinking about Carleton (especially if Guelph doesn't offer me co-op), but I'd just need to decide between CS and Interactive Multimedia for it. As for UofT: it has a nice campus, and apparently program, but when I applied I couldn't see myself going/enjoying it there (I suppose I could have applied anyways and decided later, but too late now).

I'm baffled. I've had high marks (86%) and been rejected. Had a relatively decent AIF, and didn't even receive a secondary to geomatics. How insulting.
