  1. Hi all! Is anyone having issues with login into Minerva for the first time? I entered my ID and my PIN (YYMMDD), but it doesn't let me login... Thank you! EDIT: Got it !
  2. "Winter 2020 semester credits will not be considered when assessing eligibility related to full-time studies" This is part of the new admission for 2020-2021 applicants. Does anyone know what they mean? Does this mean that if I had 5 classes in Winter 2020 (i.e. 15 credits), those credits will not count as part of my total credits to be considered a full time student for that year? I think I'm misinterpreting it, but if anyone can rephrase it would be nice. Thanks!
  3. I tried doing what you did and moved the dates back by a year, but it didn't change anything (last time I checked, but I'll try again today). For the first page of the workbook, did you you put your first bachelor and than the second one? I also put all my grades in chronological order, how about you?
  4. Hi everyone!! 1) Did anyone get into McGill based on their second university degree? If so, does having a second degree look bad or less competitive? I only did my second bachelor out of interest and to boost my GPA. On the McGill website it says "Applicants may be considered on the basis of a second, subsequent undergraduate degree (minimum 60 credits)". I am graduating in spring 2021 with all my credits, so no issues there. However, I am just wondering if I will be considered on the same level as applicants with only a first degree. 2) After entering all my grades in last year's the Academic History Workbook, my "Basis of Admission Degree" was not my second bachelor (on the last page of the excel file). Did anyone encounter this problem last year when applying? If so, is the Academic History Workbook GPA just a preliminary GPA but they will look into my full transcript/re-calculate my GPA later on in my application? Thank you
  5. Hi, random question. I thought McGill took GPA and now cote R? I calculated my GPA on the 4.0 scale....do they use cote R for out of Quebec students (I'm from Ontario)? On the website stats it's on the on the 4.0 scale. Just want to confirm.
  6. Bonjour tous le monde! Je suis un étudiant de l'Ontario (mais résident Québecois) et je me demandais comment est-ce que l'UdM fais le calcul du GPA pour l'évaluation du dossier scolaire? J'ai un bac en science que j'ai gradué en 2018, et je finis mon bac en psychologie en 2021. Ma question est la suivante: Est-ce que UdM regarder toutes les notes que j'ai (donc un cGPA de mes deux bac avec toutes les notes que j'ai jusqu'à présent) ou seulement les notes de mon deuxième bac? Je sais par exemple que McGill va seulement faire un calcul du GPA avec les notes de mon deuxième bac, mais comment est-ce que UdM le fais (même question pour Laval et Sherbrooke). Merci!!
  7. Thank you for the help! I will take all of that in consideration
  8. Perfect, thank you so much!
  9. Thank you for your response! Last question I am wondering haha. For the "academic history workbook" it seems that the McGill equivalent cGPA makes a calculation that includes both my bachelors' (ie. all my grades). However, on the McGill website, it says "Applicants may be considered on the basis of a second, subsequent undergraduate degree (minimum 60 credits). However, 45 consecutive graded credits (in a second/alternate bachelor's degree program) must be completed by the November 1 application deadline." I already have more than 45 consecutive graded credits in my second bachelor (I am graduating in June 2021 so no problem there). Is there something that I am doing wrong, or will the cGPA of my first bachelor not be looked at when McGill is assessing my file? Because the cGPA of my second bachelor's degree is 3.94, but that isn't the number I am seeing on the excel file used last year. If you could shed light on it with your knowledge and experience, that would be great!
  10. Ok, I was thinking about keeping a mix of the most recent AND relevant entries that I feel like would be a good plus for medical school. And I see what you mean, so keeping it more to unique things is the way to go. Also, I am not completely sure, but is "bilingualism" something I indicate in the application (ie. when I pay), Minerva directly or should I add it to my "skills and hobbies" section? (I am asking because I am actually trilingual)
  11. Perfect thank you! How many words per entries do you think is too much or too little? Or does it depends on the amount of entries as well at that point?
