  1. Yes that’s correct: you must convert each individual percentage grade received for a course into a number on the 4.0 scale, then find the average.
  2. My app status finally changed to "Awaiting a Decision" sometime today. Fingers crossed for some good news in the next few weeks...
  3. Time Stamp: 2:12 Invite/Reject: Reject GPA: low 3.7x ... (my first year of UG I had a 2.9 GPA. I graduated last spring.) CARS: 128 Casper: Thought it went great, but obviously not enough to offset the low cGPA. Geography: IP Oh well. This was expected, with my low cumulative GPA, but I thought it was worth a shot to put my name in for the Casper lottery.
  4. I also haven’t received anything. Sigh, this gives me flashbacks to my Dal rejection.
  5. I doubt they’ll be released today. In previous years, they have also gone out during the 3rd week of January. Seems like it was just last year they came out early. Plus, no one from MD/PhD has posted yet. Shouldn’t they already have their invitation/rejection before MD...? Anyways, regardless it’s really annoying and stressful that schools don’t really provide accurate timelines for this sort of thing.
  6. Just check your math again. Yes, 40 courses at 3 credit units each is equal to 120 credits. So, four (4), not 3, full time academic years, if one takes 5 courses per term (therefore 10 per year) = 40 courses.
  7. Mine also still says "submitted on".
  8. TIME STAMP: 8:26 EST Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): ~91-92% Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Bachelors Geography (IP/OOP): OOP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Mixture of academic and athletic awards. 5 strong previous jobs in last 4 years, all of them leadership positions, but also all had shorter-term fixed contracts. I transferred schools a third of the way through my degree, and I’ve moved around the country a lot for work, so I don’t have anything impressively longterm in one single place besides some of my personal hobbies/sport progression. I have one publication, 2nd author, international journal. Competed for 2 years full-time varsity sports. Some other things too but don’t know how to describe them without it being too revealing of identity because they’re pretty specific. I volunteered a lot this past summer and started an interesting new full-time job this September but obviously that wasn't on my application. My first thought was it's okay, next year I'll increase some points, but seeing people post about significant 5-15 point drops or more despite increasing hours or doing new things makes me very skeptical...fingers crossed for some luck with a couple Ontario and the Alberta schools in the New Year?! NAQ: ~24 AQ: ~32 TFR: ~56
  9. Yes, I received this email also from McMaster and I believe it was sent to everyone - also a means to confirm your geographical status!

    Calculated GPA too high?

    Mine is higher than I expected too, for reference it is 0.04 higher than UCalgary's calculation (with the same years/courses considered). I believe it's because Alberta considers A and A+ to both be 4.0. That being said I'm not sure how exactly they converted my grades because I went to a university that uses percentages.
