GPA for Counseling Masters - Canada


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am looking to apply for a masters in counselling psychology in Canada. I'm not sure if my grades are good enough, since I did have a few low grades in my last 60 credits. Can I get someone's advice? Here are the courses I took and the grades...

Overall stats: CGPA = 3.6/4.0, Last 2 years = 3.52/4.0 
Experience: 2 years as a crisis line volunteer, 3 months working with First Nations kids in a community centre, 1 year working at JF Norwood House with women in conflict with the law, 1 year as a RA in a child psychology lab and completed a 4th year honours thesis. 

Graduated Magna Cum Laude since my school only requires 8.0/10.0 (A-) or 3.6 minimum. 
I'm a bit worried since my last two years is a bit lower than my cGPA. I'm planning on applying to uOttawa, UBC and maybe the theology program at Wilfrid Laurier.
