Hey Matrices! I decided to start a thread for students interested in applying to Waterloo Computer Science. My cousin was rejected to Waterloo CS last year with a 92% average, and had 96/98 for advanced functions and calculus respectively. It got me scared about Waterloo's admissions process.

I had a 96% average in grade 11, and I'm expecting my grade 12 to be around the same average, although I have poor ECs but I'm still working hard to end up with 96-98% average. Do you guys think it possible for me to get the admission this year or just wait for next year's?

Also, every Waterloo CS applicant should feel free to post their averages.

My average in grade11 is 96 I'm expect around 98-99. For my ECs and other stuffs, I did internship on CS at U of Waterloo, lots of volunteering works too. I'm also worried, it's getting so competitive for CS program so I don't know what my chances are because my average and ECs aren't that perfect now so I really hope I'll be accepted to U of Waterloo because that's where my mind want's to be.

To have a good chance for CS program, you will need a 95%+ average and very good ECs. As a matter of fact, ECs is more important.. those who didn't get accepted with 97% and above didn't give a well detailed ECs on the Admission Information Forms or they probably didn't have a good ECs to begin with.

IMO you have a very good EC's and average too, so your chances of getting accepted is high.
