    From what I've heard they start giving out offers by the second week of Feb. Not sure how the system works though as some friends of mine have got offers as late as march end last year. Dont bother mailing minerva though as they never reply.

    I dont think you skip a whole year. What exactly are your subjects btw as they have some kind of list which tells you how many credits you get for each subject. However if you did IB then you do skip pretty much a year. Although as your from singapore and you did the singapore-cambridge A levels, they may have a different credit system for that.

    Seriously?

    The main reason why i'm considering McGill too is its advanced standing as it would save me a year worth of tuition fees and living expenses. If i don't get to enter in the second year, i guess i'd probably go for UBC (assuming that i get their offer too).

    Yeah, I'm guessing best case scenario is you skip half a year worth of credits if you have the right A Level subject combinations for your course. The management faculty If I remember takes into account Business Studies, Math and Accounts.

    Also, which course did you get an offer for? If you get an offer for one is your second choice automatically removed or do you have a chance of getting offers from both and choosing between the two?

    You stand a chance of getting both offers and choosing between them.
