Ha, I wish.
You're comparing the two? Seriously? The reason why it requires less for engineering is #1, it's more in demand, #2 it's just a harder program. I know people in arts who have a 3.7 and do nada. I know you're in arts and it's not a shot at you, but c'mon, you know there's a difference.

That being said B- is kind of low, I'm surprised, the cut off everywhere else is B or higher.

I'm still shocked it's B- though. That's insanely low.

1.33 : D+

So it means a B- average grade is required for the master degree, but then again the professor choose who he want and that's what I'm more afraid of.
School I go to, Concordia has a 4.3 system and it's basically the same except rounded to 0.3s and 0.7s instead of 0.33 and 0.66. Our masters programs require min 3.0.
