I would say that your changes are 50/50. I say this because your marks aren't spectacular, but they're not bad either. A 90+ in two math courses helps you out, but I would try very hard to get that Calculus mark up. Your 75% in English probably isn't that big of a deal; I know someone who got into Waterloo CS with a 57% in Grade 12 English (but 90%+ in Maths and Sciences). Your Euclid mark of 69 is quite good, and will help you. If you manage to get a 90% instead of 80% in Calculus, I would expect that your chances would go up significantly.

Don't listen to Procrastinater; the average to get into CS is nowhere near 95%. I'd say 90% is a much better average, and 84% is a good minimum.

Dangit! I slacked off too much in Calculus! I could've gotten better but I just got too arrogant and didn't think I'd have to put any effort in... well, I guess I'll have to hope for the best.

Your Euclid mark is decent but it's going to be pretty close considering your Calculus and English mark aren't the greatest. How were your ECs?
