Waterloo is pretty internationally relevant and because of this and the programs they offer a pretty significant portion of the applicants are foreign (they don't call it Water-wu for nothing). I applied to the accounting program and every applicant had to write an essay-based proficiency test in order to be admitted. I don't think Waterloo programs are any more "English-related" than programs at any other university, they just want to filter out the kids who really have serious problems speaking English.

As far as I know you need a minimum average of 75% to actually go to Waterloo, period. I also don't think you're allowed to have a mark below 70 in any of your prerequisite courses but that may have changed since I applied there.
Yea I know about the portfolio, I just have to put things I have worked on in there like floor-plan designs and shit like that. Thanks for the response I was worried about the English thing cuz I am good but not too good. Like I don't do well with reading between the lines in books and stuff I can only see what's on the surface. So I was worried. Also it is 70% but you would obviously need higher since lots of people apply. I bet people with high 70's prolly don't even get accepted. BTW here is the link that states this:

Scrool down to Admission and it will be beside Additional Notes. Anyways, thanks again man
