Please tell us about your educational goals, your interest in your chosen program(s), and your reasons for applying to the University of Waterloo.

If you have applied to more than one program please discuss your interest in each program. (900 character limit)

The CS and GBDA programs both greatly appeal to me as I hope to display my technical creativity and problem-solving skills. My aspiration is to pursue web/software development or UI/UX design, where I can be a part of a large-scale design project; both fields will allow me to display my design and programming passions. With the CS program, I will achieve a solid understanding of designing functional programs and computational fine arts, allowing for more freedom towards web design opportunities. Involvement in the MathSoc and Hackathon communities provides mentorship and connections with my peers. The GBDA program combines a variety of definite fields that will strengthen my versatility such as digital media, project management, and programming. Considering all the immense co-op and internship opportunities and dynamic business/design systems, there is no doubt in my choice in Waterloo.

Please do not be afraid to point out any wordy sentences or flaws! Any help is appreciated :)

The presentation is clear and shows a definite interest in the individual programs as both individual courses and, a combined specialization for yourself that would create a unique undergraduate course for you. One that appeals to a specific field of computer science and graphics. The response is strong, made weak only by the sudden insertion of the MathSoc and Hackathon reference. It kind of came out of nowhere and did not really include itself in the previous discussion points. I believe that you can remove that sentence so that the statement does not have a sudden change in focus. Rather, it will remain razor sharp in showing the relationship of the two courses, in a manner that would be of interest to the reviewer.
