Hey all, I am new here and signed up specifically to ask this question.
So McGill is my undisputed top choice for a number of reasons. I love Montreal, it is a phenomenal school with a beautiful campus and a culture that really stands out to me, and to top it off I am a speedskater and the Canadian national training facility is nearby, thus providing me with the best of both worlds.
Anyway enough of that. It's pretty obvious I'm desperate to get in. Do you guys think I have a good chance? I am applying to the Desautels Faculty of Management.

However, my counselor clarified in a letter included with my transcript that during my freshman and sophomore years, I attended a prestigious and highly selective high school in DC (Sidwell Friends) that didn't emphasize grades, was extremely difficult, didn't calculate GPA, and didn't have weighted classes. I had a 3.4 unweighted GPA (3.5 weighted) going into junior year and in the two semesters of junior year (at public school) I went 3.85-4.0 (4.7-4.8). I will have taken six AP's, including Bio, US History, Lang, Lit, Psych, and BC Calc. Unfortunately, AP's aren't offered to Sidwell students until junior year. What are my odds? I'm especially concerned about my SAT Critical Reading and my GPA. Hopefully they really take my recs to heart. Thank you so much!
