Chances at Mcgill Commerce with an average of 91.333??

A photo of slader23 slader23
Just wondering what my chances are...I haven't got rejected or accepted yet..and I know that some people were rejected by the university last week..I come from a pretty reputable private school...not inflated and is known for having elite university applicants...I don't really know how Mcgill assesses the application of each individual applicant but I'm sure its more than grades...any help would be greatly appreciated!

From what I understand the cut-off is 91. In that case you've got a solid chance :)

I've also heard it's 93 but a couple have gotten in with 92's so I'm pretty sure it's 91.

Mind me asking how much tuition is for out of province students? I've heard it was ridiculously high.

Anyways, best of luck to you!

I'm pretty sure McGill doesn't really care if you're from a private school or public school. As long as you have a high average, you get in automatically because their system works by filtering marks.

I think the cutoff is still 91% just because the required early acceptance average was 93%...the same as last years...and last years cutoff was 91%....I have heard of some 92%'s being accepted on this forum and also some 90-90.9's being rejected on this forum...so I think there being fairly strict..In any case the average posted on this forum don't really represent the averages of the thousands of applicants that applied to the program this year..so who knows..

The minimum to be considered is 91% but apparently they are only excepting 93%+. I got in just last week with a ~93.3% average.

Yea your at the early acceptance average..so I'm thinking basically if your midterm is over 93% or so your instantly in upon the review of your application. For those below 93% (me) they will probably wait until all the 93%+ are accepted and then accept all the spots going systematically from 92.9-91.0 or basically until all the required number of acceptances are filled as they always accept more than there will actually be...

I can only speak about Mcgill but I know that having a mark above the cutoff does not ensure acceptance. Guidance at my school and also confirmed by another school stated that McGill does look at the high school if you come from a province that does not have standardized tests. Of course there is no way they know all the schools out there but if they have a history with certain schools producing high calibre students with marks around the cutoff, those kids often get in ahead of kids with even higher marks from schools known to be very easy markers and whose alumni have not met with as much success in Uni as they did in high school.

This was said in the international thread when someone said one of their friends got rejected with a 96% into life sciences...

if the cutoff is 92.33 does that mean that a student with 92.0 gets accepted? I guess we'll find out soon anyways final acceptances go out on the 20th

They look at the program you're in though IB/AP/A-Levels. They also do look at the high school and the courses themselves. (Dad gives lectures there often and asked admissions)
