Ryerson University Waitlist

Hi there,

Is anyone else currently on the wait list for Ryerson University? I'm currently on the wait list for Business Management and I was wondering, has anyone ever got accepted while on the wait list before? Does anyone know when I will be receiving an answer?

I called Ryerson University, but they would not tell me any information regarding the wait list process.

Thanks :)

I was placed on the waitlist for Mechanical Engineering at Ryerson on the 11th of August 2011 (78% High School average, 84% College Average). Given the current date, and Ryerson's responses, I decided to prepare a backup plan in place in case of:

a) No spots becoming available between now and September 6th 2011, and
b) Potentially stronger applicants obtaining potentially available spots in the program

To answer your other questions, anything is possible. A friend was in a similar situation, a few years ago, they were placed on the waitlist in early June and accepted in early August. It all depends on how many people decide to give up their spots and how many of us are waiting for them.

Hope that was helpful

I applied to undeclared social science, not business. I never took many business courses in high school.

I got in the next year with a 1% higher average.

Apparently so. Ryerson's cut off average for Engineering programs is 75%, however they encourage students to have 80%+ averages. Times definitely have changed
