I love the sound of Mcgill so far, and it's particularly appealing for me as a US student from a family with high income (but no money, somehow) and thus very little financial based aid.
I understand that Mcgill generally bases admissions on GPA and testing scores... I currently have a 3.8 GPA, and a 2090 SAT score which is comprised of 660 Math, 730 Reading, and 700 Writing. With most of the colleges I've seen I have to boost my math score... but as far as testing goes I'm confident I'll be able to get within the accepted range. Planning on taking both subject test and ACTs as well. Not sure if this helps, but I also have two fives and two fours on AP tests.
However my transcript (I'm homeschooled, by the way) is lacking in one major aspect: As a senior, I only have 2 years of Foreign language under my belt. Mcgill is very by-the-facts when it comes to admissions; are there foreign language course requirements that could hurt my chances? Thanks!
