  2. Compete in FRC lol. Around half of the seniors on my team got in as they give a boost to FRC students. And that is considering only 75% of seniors applied. It’s honestly not too bad one of my friends got in Waterloo comp sci with an 89% because of his FRC boost and being in a school on the highest part of the list (the lowest grade inflation).
