  1. In terms of your marks, I think you should be alright (make sure most of your grades are in the 90s for your top 6). I have a lot of friends who made it into Mechatronics for 2019 and they said that its really important to have the grades but also job experience on your AIF or any relevant ECs like robotics. So maybe find a job now & just do what you’re passionate about.

  2. You’re hovering below a 95, which means you have about a 45% probability of receiving an offer. AIF is key. You absolutely must demonstrate significant robotics and programming experience and interest on your AIF, as well as nail the video interview. I’m actually holding an online admissions bootcamp for Waterloo eng applicants if you’re interested.
