Grade Point Average

A photo of 17socs 17socs
What is the necessary grade point average that I would need to obtain if I am in Kinesiology at McMaster, Western or Laurier
and to continue on into grad school, do they only look at my fourth years marks and course or all four years marks?

If you're looking to go to med school...
Good luck.
You would need a... 4.0 pretty much
3.8 - 3.9 maybe if you did amazing on the MCAT

Depends on the program. They will look at cumulative GPA, prereqs GPA, and any standardized test (MCAT/GRE/PCAT etc) to calculate admission average. So yes you should aim to do well in all 4 years, though generally 1st year is of less importance because you're unlikely to be fulfilling any prereq courses then. A GPA of 3.5+ is pretty good, 3.7+ is competitive.

3.85 and 36 and you'll be quite competitive IMO.
