McGill Transfer (2021 Fall)

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 :blush: are you still waiting for news?

Yes! Hoping to hear from them soon because the next semester at the ANU begins in July :grimacing:

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 ?

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 :confused:

I know :frowning: 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 :joy:

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 :frowning:
@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
