And Waterloo has arguably the best math program in the world.
arkm110 I said that because an A in Ontario is an 85, while in the US it is a 93, so you can see that the US marks are inflated compared to ontario. Again I said take it with a grain of salt because I truly do not know.
@TomSrOfBoston Yes, but you are assuming that the way one marks in the US is exactly the same as in Canada. What if it is just as hard to get an 85 in Canada as to get a 93 in the states. From my experience, it is difficult to get a 90 in canada. My friends have gotten 90's in grade 9,10,11 but as soon as it came to grade 12, they dropped. Now I got good grades, 9- 90, 10-90, 11-87, but in 12 I am getting a 95, definitely an outlier.
