I am interested in applying for Univ of Waterloo (CS or Math) for next year. I am attending a high school in USA but a dual Canadian/USA citizen with active passport etc. I understand that my status would be international applicant with a possible Canadian citizen fee structure - but I am not sure. Still confused about following and appreciate any input:
- Will I be in the international pool of applicants or domestic? (am assuming that international pool is more competitive but just trying to asses if my Canadian citizenship is of any advantage for admission itself).
- GPA > SAT > EC's > Essays (assuming that this is the order of importance for admission chances - please correct/add anything I am missing)
- AP's: I took/taking bunch of AP's (and college courses in Math/CS) - will I get any credits for them at UofWaterloo.
- Math contests: am active in math contests/tests (AMC; 2xAIME; HMMT; ARML; invitational math contests at US universities) but never took Euclid because its not offered at my school and there is no interest from anyone else. How important it is to take Euclid to improve admission chances?
- Euclid: are there any other ways to take Euclid if your school is not registered (for example its possible to take AMC at any school as long as the alternate school has room and agree - is it same for these CEMS tests).
Thanks for any other relevant information.
