Frustrated with Mcgill!!!

I don't know if it's just me but I have been waiting for what seems to be forever. Is any one out there still waiting for Mcgill to accept them (especially into their life science program)?

I hope you do get in because if you do not then neither am I. My average is 92.3% I want to believe that we are the next batch to be accepted (92%). I called them today and they said I would get a response latest on Tuesday. I've been so tensed for the past 2 months, can't wait until its over.

Don't worry guys, I'm sure you'll get accepted very soon.
My average is exactly 93 and I got accepted at around noon today.

By the way, are you guys from Ontario?

lol, Queen's is my second choice too. If mark got in with 93% then I believe we have a shot (you have more of a shot than I do anyways). I believe they'll send out the last round tomorrow and then rejection letters next week. I'm from Ontario as well.

Yeah, I'm from Ontario too!

Maybe you should try calling them. when I called, the lady said that for some reason my application had been left out and not reviewed so she put a note on my account. And I got accepted the next day. it's strange

If you do get accepted, will you go to McGill?

Hi, I'm from Ontario and I take the full IB diploma.
I got my FSF 4U and MHF 4U in grade 11 so they are not part of my grade 12 midterm marks (they are final marks already). I was wondering:
1. What is the highest average that got rejected by Life Science so far, as you've heard from your friends? I.e. what do you think is the cut-off for this year? (For Ontario students)
2. If anything is changed after IB exams, will they re-review your marks?
3. After considering ENG 4U, SCH 4U, SBI 4U, MCV 4U, which are prerequisite for Life Science, will McGill select the next two marks from IB courses, like history and ToK, or will they automatically "find" the top 4U marks, which are FSF 4U and MHF 4U that I took last year?


Thanks!

I've called them like 5 times today regarding my transcript and they keep saying they asked for it since October (huge lie). For the fact that they have not rejected me yet then that means with 92.3% you should get accepted. I hope you're not an international student though (as I am) because they will waste your time. Good luck though!! By the way They also said you should get a response latest on Tuesday.
