I know everyone is really nervous about the decisions that are about to come out. Just know if you don’t get accepted, it doesn’t mean you aren’t smart and it doesn’t mean you should give up! It’s a v

Hi everyone! With a lot of admissions decisions coming out soon/tonight-ish I just wanted to drop the number for some crisis lines as news can bring up feelings of distress.    Crisis phone

I can't believe we've had to wait so long since we submitted our applications in Jan haha. I have been anxiously waiting! Best of luck to us all!!

The last time I checked, my application still said written notification to follow as well but nothing about a decision being made. My subGPA is a 4.0/4.3 and I'm also OOP. I had a question about the GPA conversion from a 4.0 to 4.3 scale. I didn't think it was possible to have a 3.85/4.3. When you look at the Graduate Studies website, it mentions that a 80-84% is a 3.7, 85%-89% is a 4.0, and a 90-100% is a 4.3. From this I assumed that a 91 or 99 are both considered a 4.3 (taken from the website as well)? How did you get a grade point that was in between 3.7 and 4.0?

You have to convert each grade and then calculate the GPA. So if your grades for a semester were 80, 91, 87, 90 and 93, that would translate to (3.7+4.3+4.0+4.3+4.3)/5=4.12

This conversion would be school dependent, so I don't know if an 80 would be 3.7. But the idea between how to calculate the GPA is the main point.

Oh interesting! The Faculty of Graduate Studies made it seem a lot more complicated. I'll try to attach a screenshot of what I used.

Yep! That's the same! I simplified it by assuming that all of the courses were weighted the same, but it's slightly more complicated if you have courses that are worth varying amounts.

I see! My transcripts have courses that are weighed differently so I decided to take this approach. I hope I did it correctly. I just kept my percentage score until the final conversion so that it's the most accurate. The website also mentioned that laboratory courses needed to be excluded in the GPA calculation which made it more complicated too.
