    @balaur It was just quarter grades for me.
    @TomSrOfBoston I was well above requirements. High GPA, ACT, and SAT.

    @TomSrOfBoston Are they? I dunno, it kept saying average so I thought they were averages. Well I guess then I would seem to be significantly above the minimum then (although I still maintain I only look stellar because of the lack of a +/- system in my school, I mean honestly look at me right now I can barely understand their website lol).

    They are the minimum UW GPA and SAT/ACT scores. McGill's website is a maze.

    From the website:
    "The values listed below are the lowest grades used for admission for September 2015; grades that are equal to or better than those listed do not guarantee admission for September 2016. '

    got my results today for faculty of arts

    29 ACT
    official weighted gpa: around 4.1, unweighted around 3.4, but this is including freshman year and PE classes which mcgill doesnt count.

    i submitted my quarter grades on saturday and got the "Admitted pending final results" two days later (today) around noon :-)))))) super shocked since i barely meet minimum req's and only people who are well above them get accepted quickly

    I put in my grades a little less than a week ago, and haven't heard since. When we uploaded the file, did we need to do anything else, like send an email?
  • zach1198zach1198 Registered User Posts: 107 Junior Member
    @CollegeKidCool No you don't need to send an email.

    If they asked for my midyear/second quarter grades, will I have to wait until febuary to send them? Or can I just send in my first quarter and hope for the best?
  • SuperFloreeSuperFloree Registered User Posts: 36 Junior Member
    @TomSrOfBoston True, but still doesn't make me feel like any less of an idiot. But oi, the quote's pretty clear there then, guess they are minimums.

    Side question if nobody minds, as I don't think it warrants another whole thread: does anyone know how the one-year entrance scholarship works? If I got it would I have known at acceptance or do all the scholarships come out at once at a later date? I've been searching around but I cannot find an answer for the life of me.

    does it say if you got in on the portal once you submit everything? How do they notify you of the decision?
  • pajw424pajw424 Registered User Posts: 14 New Member
    @hellobroos2 the decision is posted on the application status page in the box that probably says "In Review" or "Further Review Required" for you.

    Also, I got accepted two days ago but I didn't apply for any entrance scholarships. Is it too late to apply to them, or does their deadline of January 22nd still stand for me?
  • hellobroos2hellobroos2 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    Thanks so much! And I'm not exactly sure about the entrance scholarships... But you should def call the school about it; they'll have the best answer!! @pajw424

    Just submitted my app a few days ago. Any idea when I should hear back? Hoping to hear back before they leave for Xmas break. Also - does McGill send you an email notifying you that you've been accepted?
  • hellobroos2hellobroos2 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    I currently have "reviewed: decision pending"
    What does this mean for me? Has anyone else with this status gotten accepted? If so approx. how long did it take to pass through this stage?
