What are my chances of getting in?


Decent. You're borderline.


Is there a chance I will get early acceptance?


No.


My school is the number 1 school in ontario and i think 3rd in the country so will they take that into account?


No, they don't have time to check the reputation of high schools.

McGill has said that they explicitly prefer the full diploma, so I doubt your IB certificates will have any bearing. And btw your school is not the top Ontario school:P Not even close... And I have a 90 in full IB and haven't heard back yet, so I would doubt you have

hey :)
I go to Colonel By s.s in Ottawa and first term I had an 89% average and now second term i have an 88.4% average. I have applied to the faculty of Arts and want to major in political sciences. What are my chances of getting in? Is there a chance I will get early acceptance?

* I know my average is going up next term i think i will have around a 90-92%
* My school is the number 1 school in ontario and i think 3rd in the country so will they take that into account?
* oh and i also did 3 years of IB g9-11 and got 3 IB certificates ( i did g12 courses last year)

Thanks! :)



Colonel By is not the top school in Ontario, let alone Canada. However, it is the top school in Ottawa. You'll have very good chances with a Top 6 ~90%

wooooo!! CB!! Whatever other people say, i still think CB is the best highschool ever :P You'll most likely get into McGill arts with any mark over 90, so dont be worried!!
