Chances for an American, and some questions!

<p>Hi! I wouldn't normally start an individual threat like this, but McGill is somewhat of a mystery to me and I'd love to have some questions answered! I go to a competitive public school that accepts around 50% of McGill applicants (11 attending from the class of 2011).</p>

<p>Stats - </p>

<p>4.03 WGPA </p>

<p>I am applying to the Faculty of Arts, which seems to be primarily focused on your English marks. My sophomore year I had a B in Honors English, last year I had an A in Regular, and first term of this year I got an A- in AP English Lang. I am worried about my B sophomore year because McGill's Arts requirement of B+'s or higher in English courses. Will this ruin me?</p>

<p>30 ACT, 31 superscore (35 Reading, 32 English, 31 Science, 28 Math)
760 US History SAT II, 5 on the AP</p>

<p>Since my lowest score is in math, will my scores look better in the context of the Arts? Will they take into account that I am a more humanities focused person? </p>

<p>I have no idea how McGill reads applications, or if I stand a chance, but be honest. Thank you!</p>

<p>Monterey, have you asked your high school guidance counselor? With that number of students from your high school applying to McGill each year, I would imagine he/she would be a much better resource for you than this message board.</p>

<p>That being said, in order for anyone here to give you any sort of prediction, you should also provide your unweighted GPA. </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
