I'm not sure if this is the best sub-forum to post in, so bare with me. I'm currently finishing my MA at the University of Quebec in Montreal and, as an American, I'm at a loss for interpreting my grades and what they might mean for my chances of getting into the PhD programs I just finished applying to. I finished my undergrad with nearly a 4.0, but I can't seem to pull off an A+ in any of my MA classes (currently at 3.95/4.30). Part of this, I'm guessing, is due to the language barrier. I studied French for a very short period of time before deciding to go to a francophone university, mainly as a personal challenge to myself, but I'm wondering if it's simply rare for students to get A+'s in Quebec. I vaguely recall hearing that this is the case in France, where they also use a 4.3 scale for GPAs, so perhaps it's similar? Basically, I've always been able to rely on my grades as a selling point for applications, so I'm not sure if that's still the case or if I should be pretty worried about my chances of getting into any of the better programs that I applied to.
Hello - wondering if anyone who has some experience with studying in Quebec and the FQRSC (provincial funding) could help me out... I just moved here to start my PhD (from another province), so I know I'm not eligible this year. But, in reading their regulations, they want a copy of your Quebec RAMQ health card. However, the RAMQ states on their website that students aren't eligible for health care, that they are covered under the plan from their province of origin (in my case, OHIP). Is this just a matter of my deciding whether I want to be a Quebec or Ontario resident on paper (and for taxes etc)? If that's the case, then should I just get my health card as soon as I'm eligible (I'll be here 3 months come November)? There's no particular reason for me to stay an Ontario resident. Has anyone else stumbled over this? I'm disappointed I can't apply this year but will be ready for next year.
