OMG:

In a totally non racist manner can someone explain what can be attributed for the noticeable increase in asian population at UW. Save your bitching about how you hate it for someone who gives a fuck. This is a purely fact based discussion of the intellectually blessed.

  1. The majority of students in UW are in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Asians value STEM fields more than other ethnicities (won't elaborate on why they do) and also these fields require higher entrance averages which Asian students have. So, Asians are more interested in STEM and can afford to get into STEM, and UW is known for STEM and is full of STEM majors. The result is UW being full of Asians.

  2. Agree with #2, Just look into Art students of UW, you won't find as large portion of Asians as in STEM.

  5. UW in particular admits a lot of international students because they pay a lot more in tuition and money is all that matters

    1. This is wrong- the university gets the same amount of money from both types of students. It just happens that a large chunk of non-international tuitions are paid for by the government

    2. @6.a that's not accurate. International students do pay a lot more than what the university spends on them, and for local students even with the government's funding they aren't paying for the full cost, international students tuition and donations make up the difference.

      That said, what 6 says doesn't make any sense. International students only represent 10% of the entire student body. 6 probably sees Asians and thinks they're international students and convinces himself/herself that they're here because of their money which is very far from true.

  6. #2 is definitely correct in that STEM tends to attract Asian students, but it's also because having a large asian population creates a positive feedback effect which entices even more asian students to UW. It's the same effect that leads to the creation of Chinatowns throughout many cities.

  7. Maybe it's a side effect of fewer non-asians seeking admission or accepting admission offers, because they increasingly view it as a school for asians.

    1. The Communist Party of China, having made a clear-headed appraisal of the international and domestic situation on the basis of the science of Marxism-Leninism, recognized that all attacks by the reactionaries at home and abroad had to be defeated and could be defeated. When dark clouds appeared in the sky, we pointed out that they were only temporary, that the darkness would soon pass and the sun break through.

    2. We also pay in cash, the rest just put it on credit cards. Buffoons!

  9. Sorry to break it to you but there is no one who is "intellectually blessed" at UW. That's why they're going here.

  10. The more Chinese students that come here, the more enticement there is for more to come. They don't have to speak English, they have multiple Chinese restaurants to choose from, pi recently got taken over by a Chinese grocery store, there are many Chinese clubs. So Waterloo makes the perfect place to come and not have to put any effort into integration into Canadian society. The tuition from them is rising so thats something to look forward too.

    1. The new chinese grocery store is actually very outstanding. You don't need to appreciate Chinese people to appreciate Chinese food. ;)

  12. I come from a white town and I think there are a few reasons that white people tend not to choose Waterloo.
    1. Most of my friends did not go into STEM fields, which is the only reason to go to UW.
    2. Those that did go into STEM chose to go to other universities like Queens or UofT. This was mostly because Waterloo had a reputation for being an Asian school, which most white folks see as being too studious, with no social life. I think most of you would agree there is some truth to this. Look at Waterloo compared to Laurier, Western, Queens. They seem to have way more fun.
    3. Waterloo is not a destination city. There's hardly any culture when compared to cities like Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
    4. Who knows, maybe Asians really are smarter. However, based on the people I've met at UW, I wouldn't say Asians are any more intelligent on average.

    1. I read something recently that explained the bias/stereotype about Asians being "smarter", which was essentially that back in the day very selective immigration policies brought the best + brightest (highly educated, had money, needed in difficult professions etc), creating communities of very smart and driven families, which produce children with also high aspirations, and so on. It's a biased sample that people are using to make assumptions about a whole population.

    2. Looking smarter than the average student in High School isn't hard. You literally just have to care. Then you go to University based on your average and things shake out because the courses are actually hard here. The smartest 10% of my class had a good distribution in terms of race, the dumbest 10% was disproportionately Asian.
