Over the last couple of weeks we’ve finished our first round of engineering offers, and they should be all posted on Quest by now. As mentioned in other places, we aimed to fill around 25% of our spaces at this point, and the rest of the offers will be processed in early May. In the meantime, we’re waiting for the Ontario second semester grades to come in April, and we continue processing the transcripts and documents sent in by the other applicants (Form 105 applicants).
With the increase in application numbers, things seemed a bit more competitive again this year. But it will be impossible to quantify that until everything is over in May, so I can’t really comment any further.
So for those who recently got an offer, congratulations. Make sure you think carefully about the program, and whether Waterloo is a good fit for you. Maybe try to attend our open house on March 19, or come for a visit some other day.
For the 10,000+ people who didn’t get an offer, make sure your AIF (and any other required documents) are submitted, and just sit tight. We’ll have the rest of the decisions in early May. (note, for the AIF make sure it’s “submitted” and not just “saved” on Quest.)
