    @Tstudent2019 if you don't mind telling, how was your high school grades? I spoke to some people and some say that they're important but some say that they only consider your college GPA. My grades were not bad but they were also not perfect in high school. I think I'm good if they focus on my college GPA but just out of curiosity, do you think that your high school performance had any effect on your acceptance?

    @clgfrm123 I've heard that admissions officers place more value on your most recent grades when deciding. The further you are away from high school the less they will matter. For example if you were in your second year of university your high school grades would mean even less. You should aim for as high of a GPA as you can while taking the required amount of courses.

    @clgfrm123 Not sure how many courses that is for your school; however, I believe McGill requires at least 8 courses.

    @jerrythemoose Hey there I am a US first year transfer candidate and I applied for Arts and for the faculty of education with a gpa of 3.7. I was wondering if you think that will cut it to get into Arts ?

    @clgfrm123 nope, still under review. I guess we just need to wait until June to know the answer.

    @matlavo1 A girl got accepted with a 3.6 on Late July/Early August. I would guess yes, you should be accepted! Think July maybe? Unless your school in the U.S is ranked very high. As soon as you get your acceptance letter, apply for the CAQ! It will take some time (a month), it’s a pretty straightforward application process, I completed the app in 20 minutes, it just takes some time to arrive because of bureaucracy. Super important step, if not, you may have to defer a semester.

    @jerrythemoose what difference does it make if our school is ranked high? And also, what is CAQ?

    @clgfrm123 Certificat d'acceptation du Quebéc

    If you are non-Canadian you need to apply for this.

    @jerrythemoose when did you submit your official transcript? At the end of the year, or they will ask you to submit it after the acceptance?

    Do you think it's too early to start calling the admission office about when they're going to release decisions?

    @clgfrm123 I think it's totally ok to ask right now, and even when doing this might make you sound pushy you have absolutely nothing to lose cause people answering your call are not the same people making the decision on your application. With that being said, you are likely being told to wait with patience, which is likely the only answer service point people could give you. I would recommend just keep waiting. They're really busy working on all the U.S first-year applications right now to have their decisions released by May 1st, so I don't think they would have any time left for reviewing transfer applications.
