That’s amazing! I’m just finding this thread now, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve been trying to find information about international transfers on Reddit and I can’t find anything. I’m an international student at the Australian National University, and I applied to Arts. My only major option while applying was “Undeclared” so that is what I have on my application - did you guys get to put your major of choice on your McGill application while applying? Is this something I should be worried about?
no worries about that! We choose our major after a year i think? But yes on the application we are undeclared are you still waiting for news?
Yes! Hoping to hear from them soon because the next semester at the ANU begins in July
I was also wondering if any of you know how to find the international GPA conversions to the McGill scale? I applied with a 6.75/7 GPA on the Australian scale. Some conversion tables tell me that that converts to a 4.0 while others say it’s a 3.83, so I’m unsure when to expect my response
ohh im sorry i only have a quebec universities chart, but not international :(( but both 3.83 and 4.0 gpas are really good!! mcgill is on 4.0, so if you have a 4.0 thats truly amazing hahaha!! i have a 3.43/4.0 which is around B to B+ ish ?
Ooh, ok thanks! Hoping I hear from them soon then
Heya! I’m applying to Arts as well! Im transferring from the Uni of Sheffield in the UK. When did you applying cuz i was worried that since I applied at mid January theyve gave out all the places already. Anyways hope you hear from McGill soon!! xx
Hi! I applied on January 6th. I’ve heard that they take their time getting back to transfer students, but I hope that both of us hear soon so we can organize visas and things…it’s kind of hard to transfer internationally in the last minute
I know apparantly we have to sort out our student visa by 15/5 or else there’s no guarantee that we’ll get the visa before semester starts. May I ask whereabouts are you from btw?
I’m remotely studying at an Australian university! Applied from Chile but currently living in the US.
Hi @noodlethepoodle I was just curious but did you get accepted into the faculty of arts? I was just wondering since I wanted to see which faculties have started reviewing the transfer applicants. Can I also ask if you applied to any other faculties and if so have they gotten back to you?
Hi! I only applied for Arts! I got the acceptance letter at the end of April. I think they looked at my application earlier than i expected because im a quebec resident and went to CEGEP (quebec pre-university studies). I thought i would have to wait until august lol! I hope you hear news soon. Are you still ready for review?
ohh that makes sense. I was looking at their estimated dates for release and it did say they release decisions for quebec residents first. I’m still at ready for review sadly but I think they start reviewing international students starting mid may so hopefully we all hear from them soon!
yes i think after the may deadline theyll accept more people once there’s space! but i dont know, mcgill admissions process is confusing
Oh my goodness, I am so excited to find someone else as transfer students !
I am an international student and I have studied in the University of Ottawa for one year. I have applied to both Arts and Science and my current gpa (using mcgill conversion) is 3.875/4.0 do you think I am likely to be admitted?
I just got waitlisted (today I think) i applied to arts with a 3.75 ish
@okcry congrats! are you an international transfer?
When did you apply and which course did you apply to? Apparently they are reviewing transfer applicants now and im freakkkkkkkking out
I applied to the same thing and my GPA is the same! Fingers crossed that we both get in xx
Just called service point and they said decisions can go for a really long time which is really disheartening. They said the estimated dates for release are only an estimation
@nakojjang how did you find out they’re reviewing transfers now? I applied to arts and science and have been at RFR for months now. I think a few weeks ago the tab on the application list changed to applications processed under review but still haven’t heard anything back yet
No, i am Canadian not from quebec though
