93 is better... according to my numeracy skills.

You could say 100 is better... but 92 is about right.

92 seems to be a very safe benchmark for Schulich.

I'd say 93. 91 is the cutoff, if I'm not mistaken. 93 + mediocre/good ec's should do the job.

Same thing, tbh I don't think Schulich looks for any major EC's..just having some is important.

Doubtful.

Our school preaches a ton, even to first year students, about not putting on random crap on a page (resume) just to make it look like you've busied yourself and done a lot.

I filled up my page during my application process last year, but I had some things stand out.

And as for a 'safe mark', honestly, they have a lot to do with your ECs and essay as well. Schulich says it weighs the mark and supp. app 50/50, but I'd say it's probably closer to 70/30. Most people I've talked to have gotten in with around a 93ish sort of mark, but I know someone who was accepted after during second semester final exams with an 88.

I know a couple of people like that too. They had a high mark at the 2nd midterm (93ish%) and got their offer. However, the offer is conditional and just requires a student to maintain 85% average, so if the mark would drop in the end to 85, they would still keep you, but give you a smaller scholarship. With that said, one still needs a high mark to get the original conditional offer.

People say 92% + in a reputable school pretty much guarantees you a spot.

With a good supp. app.

Most people say the supp app isn't as relevant past 92 because no one with a 92+ average has been rejected. Do you guys know anyone who got rejected with a 92+ average (regardless of ECs)?
