  1. Oh well. 100% of McGill OOP applicants will have below average AQ simply because the school doesn’t give out A+.
  2. Hi medafterall, I found the following on the UBC MD admission website under academic criteria. From what I understood, you are eligible for AGPA if you have more than 90 graded credits (excluding credits from winter 2020) before the application deadline. “In the adjusted academic average, the academic year up to 30 credits with the lowest academic average will be dropped. If more than 30 credits are presented in the worst academic year, the 30 credits with the lowest grades will be removed, provided 90 graded credits remain.

  3. Hey FF20, I’m really sorry that you didn’t get the CARS score you wanted. I was exactly in the same position as you. ESL, low CARS and only moved to Canada at 18- I feel your struggle. Here is what I think - You definitely have a chance. Take some time to reflect on why you were not doing well on CARS. For me, it was the lack of vocabulary that held me back.

  7. Thank you for your kind words. Honestly I have been so upset for the whole week. I got 512 last year (but 124 in CARS), so I am planning to rewrite this summer to hopefully improve my CARS.
  8. Hi everyone, I have been getting different opinions from different people. Before I make a final decision, I wanna hear what you think. I am an IP applicant. I have completed my undergrad in 2016, then grad school in 2018. My undergrad grades suck. My AGPA converts to about 86.4% at UBC (3.72/4 at McGill). I did experience some family issues that affected my grades (which I will not get into the details) so I might write a letter. I have about 2000h of volunteering, publications, good references and some unique experiences in my opinion. (this year is going to be my first applicati
