QUESTION: Did you actually go to Waterloo's Open House (not the one that just occurred on Saturday, but when you were applying) to know if you'd attend UW or not?

  1. I went to the Fall Open House and it totally sold me on Waterloo. I was not expecting to like this university, but I totally fell in love with the program and liked Waterloo way more than I expected to.

  2. At the time I was already pretty set on Waterloo. But it was great going just to hear perspectives of actual students.

  3. I went during very briefly in april and the summer (month and a half before I moved in) before; already accepted at this point. I'm low on a long list of kids who went to university in my family and none of them saw campuses prior, so my parents didn't think there was a point in taking me to see it.

  4. I just went here bc all my asian friends were going here, never visited. 4 years later and no regrets.

  5. I went in March. It did not deter me, and that was enough.

  6. I didn't go to any open houses but I went to see the campus sometime in the summer. (we were passing through Waterloo) I had been set on coming to Waterloo even before I knew which schools would accept me (for co-op), seeing any open houses wouldn't have changed anything.

  7. I went to open houses for other schools but not Waterloo since I had already seen the campus previously when visiting friends here.

  8. I didn't bother with any open houses at all, but that's because I'm from Alberta (and didn't apply to any in-province schools...)

  9. I'm out of province so I couldn't do the open houses but I was initially sold on Queens. After doing a tour there somebody suggested I do a tour of Waterloo and I changed my mind.

  10. Saw it in march, the ugly campus kind of turned me off, but I was already set on going there so I accepted the offer anyway. No regrets though, the campus slowly grew on me, like a cat.
