    its decently good, but again, there’s only so many unis offering MEng, so if you were to put these unis in a list of its own, SFU’s pretty far down

    Huge sop mistake

    assuming the VO is a fluent english user, they’d be able to tell based only on the sentence structure and tone of the SOP.
