Rejected to Mcgill =(

A photo of sammyz18 sammyz18
Please if anyone has been accepted to chemical or mechanical engineering can you tell me your mark. I had a 90.2 average and i was positive i would have gotten in for at least one of them =(. It was my first choice now i guess i have to go to Queens or UBC

McGill, in general, is pretty prestigious. A 90.2 average may have been borderline this year (consider the amount of competition in other universities as well).

McGill probably has a lot more international applicants in comparison to Waterloo. Thus, there is more competition for less spots.

The admission averages they list are for consideration. The actual cut-off is defined by competition, which varies every year. Competition almost always increases annually, increasing the cut-off average with it.

Yeah of course, my question is by how much? Did it honestly increase over 2% this year?

I got in w/ a very high 2nd semester midterm average with two 97s, and they accepted me right after OUAC update. What I'm thinking of is that marks other than your top 6 are considered as well...I also have this feeling that McGill is very competitive. I'm going to uoft though so there's another spot for you guys.

Im in alberta so its only top 5 for us. And im all my prerequisites or required courses are all above the minimum averages necessary... I guess the averages just went up ridiculously high this year.

I was researching on Mcgill and if your an Ontario applicant it is much harder to get into Mcgill compared to a Quebec resident. For Ontario students you need low 90's because there are really few spots available.

I think, I am not 100% sure, but I know I read it on their website. You can also search their last year admission average

Man, I am so sorry for you....You actually added an aditional stress to me..cause my average is not that far from you..95% for my top 6 and today they asked about my 9-12 grades which were not that high (82-85)% so I dont know if they will take in consideration these marks as much as my top 6...Formally, tomorrow is the last day for ontarian students.
