An updated posting…
The final set of offers are getting posted to our online Quest system, and then to the OUAC application centre (there is a day or two delay between the two). At this moment, a lot of the Ontario school applicant offers (Form 101) have been posted. The Form 105 offers (for outside Ontario) are being processed. The university hopes to have the majority of decisions posted by the end of next week (May 13). Because there are thousands of decisions to process (in addition to just Engineering), it can take a while for it all to finish.
A suggestion about communications…if you’re an applicant waiting on a decision, the best thing to do is to monitor your Quest account and your email until you see the outcome. It is not a good idea to phone or email the university at this point, as the staff don’t have any information to offer until the decisions are finished being posted. We know it’s difficult to wait, but phone and email won’t get a result any faster.
As a quick summary for this year, we had just under 12,000 applicants for about 1,550 spaces, or around 7.5 applicants per space. It’s actually a bit more complicated than that. There were about 6 applicants per space reserved for Canadians and Permanent Residents, and almost 17 applicants per space for the 200 spots reserved for visa students, so that competition is quite a bit tougher.
Overall, with our space limitations and the number of applicants, we will be turning away over 2,500 applicants with a 90%+ admission average.
