<p>Well, there it is. Feel free to be honest, thanks again for any help!
Thank you for your time...</p>

<p>anyone? please?</p>

<p>you're in at McGill :)</p>

<p>Thanks! Anyone else?</p>

<p>Are you sure he's in at McGill...? I've heard class rank is a big deal there.</p>

<p>I don't think Canadian schools look at class rank when taking in to account your GPA... at least not for domestic students.</p>

<p>GPA is a bigger deal than class rank..thouhg I saw his class rank after I made my post. But even considering that, I'd say he's a good candidate for McGill. His stats are excellent in all other categories.</p>

<p>Might want to look at Holy Cross-very good school.</p>

<p>Thanks. I know the class rank will cause troubles. The problem is, in my school, there are a ton of kids who take all regular classes, get very high 90s, and end up with higher ranks since the regular classes are weighted by 1.04. The AP/IB/Honors classes are weighted by 1.06. I know that's not an excuse and it really doesn't matter but, eh. Anyway, thanks. Keep it coming.</p>

<p>By the way, I'm a girl :)</p>

<p>Mcgill is also the best school on his list. so if he's in why go anywhere else.</p>

<p>Both my Grandparents on my dad's side are McGill Class of '51.</p>

<p>Great school. If I didn't want to live in Montreal (the French have taken over, lol!) I'd definitely apply there.</p>

<p>The French have not taken over Montreal...that's a very derogatory generalization.</p>

<p>It was a joke. Lighten up man.</p>
