Minimum Requirements?

Does anybody know just how strict McGill is with its minimum requirements? In my case, I am below one minimum requirement (SAT critical reading score), but I am well above every other requirement and I would like to know if that really hurts my chances of getting admitted.

By the way, I am applying for engineering, which requires reading skills, but is primarily math and science based.

    Consensus here has been that all the minimum requirements should be met for McGill to be a safety. The chance of being accepted is likely to drop drastically if one of them is not met. Retake and try to get that one score up if you can.
