The University of Waterloo (Canada)

Oct 14 2014Social Work
High grades, ample volunteering experience.
Aug 14 2014Mechanical Engineering
It was really easy to get in, get high marks and write some bs for the entrance essay and you are good to go

I had a 96 average in high school. I participated in lots of extracurriculars. I wish I had not even applied to this dump

Extracurricular involvement and high grades will help land you a place at Waterloo. My entering average was 95% and I had over 500 hours of volunteer work.

Assuming that anyone would want to go (though in my experience, this seems laudable!), just know that for the next few years of your youth, you will not have a social life as there are few others at Waterloo who desire a social life. You will spend your Friday nights drinking with one buddy from not your program (if you are in AFM), and the rest of your weekend cramming like hell, because something is always due, and you will fall behind even if you have a strong work ethic. Also, expect the libraries to smell like unwashed human bodies during exam season, and expect to see Asians & East Indians everywhere. There is a reason that DC "stands for" Downtown China, and MC is Mainland China.

I applied originally as an international student (from the US). If you still want to go to Waterloo, my advice is to take AP classes for math and physics (Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, CS). You won't be able to use AP credits, but Canadian universities prefer you to be overqualified than underqualified.
SAT: 2000 Male
Mar 14 2014Computer Science
I got in with a 95% average, which is pretty much a guaranteed acceptance to any Canadian University (also accepted to McGill, UBC, UofT). Don't bother working your ass off to get into this school because it is not worth it. DO NOT GO TO UW FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE
