    Well, since people our posting good news, I'll join in the fun. Not only did I get into the University of Virginia, but also into their Computer Science program which has almost no open spots in it. Yay!!!

    Actually.. according to an article on their website, of the 5051 students admitted this year, 3859 were from ontario, 734 from other parts of canada, and 458 from overseas.

    You're warping those statistics. The only reason most people were from Ontario was because more people who live near Waterloo will want to go there. So more people from Ontario go.

I got accepted to UT Austin which has like the #7 CS dep. in the US(I got into the pre-computer sci. program which is what first semester comp sci students take to determine if they get into the Computer Science department).
    there used to be something here, but not anymore
