  1. Hi everyone, I transferred over to Ontario from the states after my 2nd year of studies, and is considering if I should take an extra year. I can barely finish the two degrees I'm pursuing (Neuro specialist; Biochem major), but if I drop the specialist to a major, or drop the bch major and keep the neurosci specialist, I'll have no problem graduating on time. Also, doing an extra year would make me an "eligible ontario resident" for Mac, so that's another reason why. I had a GPA of 3.78 after my second year (mostly pulled down by one C in French and one B in calculus one in my first year, which would be dropped in the wGPA for some schools?). HOWEVER, the grades for my first term here in Canada is not good. I got into an emergency medical condition 4 days before the finals, and was going through a lot of pain sitting them so that affected my grades quite a bit. I deferred one final with my doctors note, and for the ones I sat in I only got one B+ and two A-s, and also a credit course which I passed. Plus I now have 4 withdrawals/latedrops due to the fact that the drop deadline at my previous school was really early (2 weeks into the term usually). But I was always a full course load, and often an overload even after I dropped (5;7;8;6 courses for each term of 1st and 2nd year). So do you guys think if it would affect my application much? So...I don't know. Any suggestions? keeping the specialist+major and struggle to finish in 4 years? or use an extra year to finish and boost gpa as well? or dropping a major or a specialist to a major to finish in 4 years? Any general suggestions or predictions on my chances of getting in would also be helpful!! Secretly thinking I'm never going to get into any honestly....
  2. Hello, I was wondering how much they consider the "grade of W" from your transcript during the application review process? Thank you
