I have terrible GPA thanks to Freshmen Year, but I heard Canadian Universities basically throw out US GPAs and rely on SAT,SAT II and AP scores. I have strong SAT score and AP scores with my SATs being 700,720,690. My AP score are a 5 on U.S History,U.S. Politics so far. But i am set up for hopefully a 5 in Calc,Chem and Physics. I also have some strong ECs.
I mean I really liked Montreal(other then all the cows on the way :)), when I visited and it is one 6 hour away from where I live now. I also know McGill is highly rated.
I know cost of attendance is higher for a International, But $15k is STILL much cheaper then most U.S. Universities.
