    I think St George would be best for you. Waterloo is a very small town and besides the 2 university campuses, there really isn't much to do. Mississauga is even more depressing since it is situated in a small-medium suburban city.

    However, St. George will lead OP to larger class sizes and more competition. UofT is known for weeding kids out, it's how they make money. I would recommend Waterloo as you will most likely be very close with the friends you make their, since there isn't much to do(there is though)m you would be spending a lot of time with them. Let's just hope it's an attractive girl ;)

    I read some article from a professor in Waterloo (https://profbillanderson.****/2014/10/03/chances-for-2015/, not this particular article but same professor)that usually they do not reject people until May except the average admission average is far below 80S. Days before I heard some student complain that was rejected by Waterloo with average 88 and called admission office and confirmed they did miscalculated his average as 83 instead of 88.

    That's a possibility. However, Waterloo isn't my first choice, so I don't want to bother the admissions officers since I don't plan on attending there. Thank you!

    Well all Ontario highschool applicants for STEM fields are generally required to have two "U level" (university-prep level) grade 12 math credits in both Calculus & Vectors as well as Functions and Relations. The AP versions of these courses are pretty much clones (they count as "U-level" on a high school transcript), except you have the choice to sit the AP exam in spring. So the high standard for international applicants is probably just to ensure their math is up to par or better than local applicants.

    NOTE: I took AP Biology in grade 12 and it was taught by the same teacher who did grade 11 biology and was the same as the standard U-level grade 12 curriculum, except we were given the choice to do the AP exam at the end of the year (which did not count to our total course grade) in addition to our regular exams (most of us chose to do the AP exam because there was really nothing to lose and it looked good on a University application)

    @mah Residence is guaranteed for one year. After that, each college has its own criteria for continuing in residence You should research that for your chosen/assigned college. There are many apartments and houses for rent adjacent to campus though.
