Here’s your chance to see what it’s like to make an admission decision. The following is a hypothetical case, but not unusual.
Let’s say there is only one space left in our Fusion Engineering program (no, we don’t actually have a Fusion Engineering program; it’s hypothetical!). The following 5 applicants are next in the ranked list of candidates, and have similar total scores (overall average + AIF score). We will assume that they all come from typical high schools in Ontario and that there are no differences in adjustment factors, and no extenuating circumstances to consider.
Which one would you pick? The one with the highest average, or highest AIF score (indicating exceptional extra-curriculars or awards)? Or, one with better English, or physics? Leave a comment with your choice and an explanation if you like.
