It’s been a while since I have had much time to get to this blog…very busy with courses, research projects, and admissions of course.
So we’ve finished the decisions and they are being processed. As of today (May 4) the Ontario (Form 101) offers have been posted on Quest (and will be followed shortly by email and OUAC). The out-of-province (Form 105) take a bit longer to process and will probably show up on Quest by the end of this week (May 8). We are working on scholarship decisions, and those should be available next week I believe.
This year seemed to be particularly complicated. A thousand more applicants (about 11,000 total), and very strong competition for Biomedical and Software especially. The net result is that a lot of applicants got offers to their alternate choices, or not at all, even though they may have had very good grades. It’s unfortunate, but we only have so many spaces to go around.
The next step is for those with offers to seriously think about whether Waterloo Engineering is the right place for them, before the deadline in early June. There is one last open house on May 23 to get information to help with that decision. I’ll try to post some thoughts about the alternate offers in the near future.
