  1. Oct 5, 2009 #1
    * For all the ontario or canadians peeps :smile:

    So, moving on, let me explain by situation

    Grade 11 marks: 81 % average
    Math functions (i took this in grade 10) - 90
    Chem - 83
    Bio - 78
    Phy - 79
    Economics - 82
    Religion - 75
    Computer Programming/Science - 90
    Computer eng. - 75
    English - 75

    Grade 12 (assuming i get these marks 83% or more):
    Adv fun - at least 85%
    Calc - at least 85%
    phy - hopefully at least 80%? lol
    chem - at least 80%
    english - hopefully at least 80%
    computer eng - at least 85%
    religion - umm i guess an 85%

    -participated in waterloo math, phy , and chem contest
    * will be doing computer programming contest and math contest in grade 12
    -participated in annuel robotics challenge
    -some school clubs
    -came second in state economics challenge (was back in grade 9 but could it still count?)
    -over +40hrs of community service hours
    -i can get amazing references from teachers
    -presidential excellence award (or something like that, forgot the name, but it was back in grade 9)
    -sports teams (but in grade 9 does it count?)
    -lots of jobs


    lol so, i want to either apply for computer eng. or computer sci. at either waterloo or toronto

    einfo states
    waterloo com eng. - mid 80's
    waterloo com sci. - mid 80's

    toronto com eng. - low 80's
    toronto com sci. - mid-hi 70's <=== lol...really???

    so any opinions on if i have a shot at any of the above 4 choices? =[
    * imma not currently worried about scholorhships, just acceptance lol

    i hope so. do you reside in canada? cuz an 80 in canada is a total different story then other countires. from what i seen, some people have not rejected or accepted with conditions with grades similar to mine.

    I go to U of T. You'll be fine.

    For which program? sci or eng? or both?

    Math specialist.

    what type of program is that under? coulnt find it on einfo

    It should be under Physical and Mathematical sciences. It's in the Faculty of Arts and Science.

    I think you are worrying too much. If you get the grade 12 marks you are hoping for (which I'm sure you will - you have a good track record) then you should get into U of T and Waterloo. If you really want to make sure, try getting a couple letters of recommendation from a science or math teacher. That's what I did and I'm sure it helped somewhat.
