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.
