  1. Hi there! I'm in a similar boat as you - think my stats should be sufficient but have yet to hear from them. I called admissions on feb 4 to ask about my adjusted gpa, and the person on the phone told me that from my stats I can still be optimistic about my chances, but by that point they had yet to read my PS. Also, when I asked, he said they had yet to read even half of the personal statements, so it seems like admissions has a lot of work ahead of them and more offers to be made (at least as of early feb). Fingers crossed for all of us!
  2. The person I spoke to has been working there for many years (since 2013). Ugh I hope that you are right about their method, but at the same time I'm nervous about contacting them too much.
  3. Oh! I did not know that. I didn't ask him if they had changed it, but I did explain to him that I was getting a higher gpa because I was calculating it differently. Was the previous method to convert every letter grade individually?
  4. I just wanted to share what I discussed with admissions the other day about GPA calculations with a mcgill transcript, which has letter grades only and no A+ They take your cGPA and multiply that by your obtained credits, then they subtract the marks in your worst courses multiplied by the number of credits they're worth (the number of courses the subtract from the calculations depends on how many credits you've obtained), then divide that number by your remaining credits. They then convert that GPA into a UBC lettergrade, according to this table https://students.ok.ubc.ca/academic-success/grades-performance/ Calculating my GPA with my lowest marks removed looks like this: (3.28 cGPA x 123 credits - 0 [F] x3 credits - 1.0 [D] x3 credits - 2.0 [C] x3 credits - 2.0 [C] x 3 credits ) / 111 credits this adds up to 3.499, which, according to the grade equivalency table, is a 78 average. I was originally calculating my GPA by converting the value of every single grade from my transcript to the equivalent UBC percentage. This is not how they calculate it, and it was giving me a higher adjusted GPA than the one that admissions will be using. Hope this helps somebody!
  5. Hello! I am a little confused about how the index score works, I've been using the usual link http://lsutil.azurewebsites.net/UBC/Predict I have a 173 and 79 avg with drops. My score is apparently a 92.11. I am wondering if achieving the index score of 92 means that your personal statements are not taken into account? And if not, would I still have a chance? Thank you so much to anyone who takes the time to answer :)
