Hey guys, 

 

I recently came to know that given the GPA conversions at UWO, my two best-year GPA is 87%. Given that my AA and RC both are 22 and an above average ABS (IMO though), is there a shot for me to get an interview invite this year ?

 

Thank you guys and good luck :)

 

Edited: Forgot to add, I've finished my UG. 

 

 

The wGPA cutoff for an interview this cycle was 3.7 (not sure what percentage that translate into

 

edit: oops, sorry, i didn't notice you meant for the dental program :(

Hmm... I wish I could answer your question, but I don't want to make things up and provide misleading information. What we were told at the beginning of the year was that: if you had very high grades but average/not-so-stellar EC's, you still had a chance to receive an interview due to your academic success OR if you had a GPA on the lower side (>83%ish), but you had great EC's or a graduate degree, you had a shot at an interview due to your other accomplishments.

 

If you were to guess, what would you vaguely consider as stellar ECs based on some of your classmates?

Thank you SnowWhite for your inputs. I was wondering if 87% is considered a lower-end GPA based on your class profile, based on your observation, if you don't mind me asking though :)

Our class average was 90%, and the range of averages was 84-94%. So since your average falls in the range and is near the average, you are in a good position. But the final decision won't just be based on your average. So if you have some EC's that set you apart from other applicants, that would be helpful.

Thank you Snowwhite. I guess I'm just gonna have to wait and see what'll happen within a week to 10 days. I'm just hoping to at least get an interview, once I do, I'll try my best to nail it !

If you get an interview just focus on killing it that's the largest factor imo. no point in dwelling on getting the interview or not it's a few weeks away just practice like you already got an invite :)

 

Thank you. You're right. I'm caught up in a few things and I guess I will start practicing soon. Hope this will be over soon :)
