McGill Engineering and Computer Science Acceptances Thread - Class of 2016!
Hello everybody from McGill!

I've seen a lot of forums related to acceptances from the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. So this forum is to give students that got an offer from McGill University for engineering and computer science to post their offer.  This to get an understanding of the students that are applying to McGill for the class of 2020 for an engineering discipline.

Please include in your post:
   1. Grade 12 first semester average
   2. Field of engineering that you've been accepted to
   3. Other universities that you have applied to, and whether you got an offer from them.
   4. Province of residence
   5. Any scholarships offered
   6. Month of acceptance

This will give us all a general idea of the competition base for the applicants of 2016. Please feel free to add anything else you would like to (in addition to the specified things above).

As the title gives away, if anyone has any questions regarding McGill Engineering or Computer Science, this is a good place to get them answered.

Also, all non-engineering and non computer science applicants who are applying to a science major in McGill are welcome to post their offers or ask any questions regarding their program of interest!

Post away everyone! Good luck to those waiting for an offer from McGill :-)

Does Final IB Grade matter?
Does anyone know, or have heard of, students getting their admission offers revoked after final IB grades are released?
Maybe it's exam anxiety getting to my head, but I'm really worried that my IB final grades will not be high as my predicteds :(
Any fellow IB Students here?

UBC offer revoked after IB Final exams?
Has anyone had their UBC offers taken way after their IB final exam grades had been released in July? 
I got into Sauder with 39 predicted points (including bonus points) and exam anxiety is getting to my head, and I'm getting worried that my final marks will be lower.
I know UBC generally says that if it drops 6 points or more, admission will be "reconsidered" but I don't know if that just means re-evaluated, or if that is a nicer way of saying admission offer will be revoked. Has anyone, or does anyone know of, anyone that got their offer revoked after their final exam grades dropped?

Do i have to go to business school
I want to pursue my career in either International Relations or Economics (Arts) 

As of my brother, he says that if I attend Arts Program, the recruiters wont hire me because

 of all the elite business school people.

So, he is suggesting me to go to business school and get a double degree in international 

relations but, oh mann, I think that is too much work, and I have no interest in business

And plus, he says since I don't have many connections with people ( We are immigrants), it 

will be hard to get jobs in Canada.

So, what is your opinion on this? Would I still get a decent job if I go to Arts program?

Admission Help!
Hi there! I've recently received my final offer of admission and I truly have no idea which one to accept. These are my options: 

University of Toronto (Miss.) - Psychology (BSc)
U of Guelph-Humber - Psychology (BASc)
York University - Psychology (BA)
McMaster University (BA)

I hope to eventually go on and get my Masters/PhD in clinical psychology. Which do you think is best for this path?

UofT eng res?
Hey guysss,

so for U of T engineering I ranked New College first, University College Second, and Chestnut third but I haven't heard anything back yet :(
I know that some ppl got their res offer already so I dont know if I did anything wrong on my res application D: just to be sure, you only had to confirm your interest in res and save your choices, right?
even though I got my offer pretty early but I just accepted it like a week ago, maybe that's why? do they start evaluating your res thing after you accept their offer?

Thanks guys!
