Chances and a question?

<p>I am currently a high school senior from the DC area.
ACT: 31
GPA: 3.5 UW, 4.3 W
(I know my GPA is kind of lousy for McGill standards, but it is due to the courseload I have taken over the past 3 years)
9th: 6 honors
10th: 6 honors, 1 AP
11th: 4 AP, 1 honors
12th: 4 AP, 1 honors</p>

<p>Will applying as an English major help my chances? I have only received one B my sophomore year in honors English. The rest were A's. In 11th grade I aced AP English Language and this year I am taking AP English Literature.</p>

<p>And, if I am accepted as an English major, will I be able to transfer before enrolling in the university?</p>

<p>While your GPA is a bit low, I'd say you would be a match for Arts. </p>

<p>If admitted to Arts, you can certainly change your major within Arts with no problem. You could not request a change to Science, Management etc. prior to enrolment though.</p>

<p>yeah, you'll get in.</p>

<p>You can try this. You get two choices on your application. First choice can be English, the second can be whatever you want to transfer into.</p>

<p>If you get accepted into both of them, then you can decide which one to enroll in.</p>

<p>You can transfer, but mcgill administration is very bureaucratic.</p>
