You will get in. Your grades are pretty good. But really... you would travel all the way from India to get an Bachelor of Arts degree? You can get one in India at a cheaper price. Then, you can come here to get master's degree.

If you plan for skilled immigration, I would focus on English testing and get a Bachelor's in India.

If you plan to actually come here to find a job after graduating with that degree then that is a poor decision my friend.Face With Tears Of Joy

100% this.

Shay, are you rich? Do you really want to blow 200k on a useless undergraduate social science degree in Canada? Here is a link to someone who did her BA at McGill, MA at U of T, and then worked as a Barista. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/report- ... le4507579/

"No one told me that an English degree was not an acceptable prerequisite for even the most basic grunt positions," says Adelle Farrelly, a recent graduate with a bachelor of arts from McGill University and a master of arts from the University of Toronto.

"When I finished my MA I found myself working at a coffee chain surrounded by fellow students and recent graduates, all of us looking for that 'real job' and confused about our fate. Remember: Those you see behind the coffee counter are likely a plucky crew of medievalists, statisticians, architects and management graduates."

Statisticians? Really? I would have thought they'd be in very high demand given all the 'big data' hype.

Ya I didn't buy that one either. Likely an attempt to make it seem like she's in the same caliber as STEM grads.

If she was talking about liberal arts on the other hand....
