    What are my chances of getting in to Lodz?



    I am currently enrolled in an International Business program at a Canadian University, and have two years remaining. I have been up and down in the program thus far, and my CGPA is low, and much lower than my ability should reflect. One year I get straight A's, the next year I get B's and Cs. However, with two years left and something to strive for (aka some sort of motivation) I am confident I could get good grades in and around a 3.6-3.8 GPA for the final two years. Even still, this would likely bring up my GPA to about a 3.0-3.2 (it is currently situated at about a 2.8). Some things I have riding in my favor, is I have been fairly involved in volunteer work; I recently participated in a privelaged Student Leadership Mission (through Germany and Poland); I am fluent in English, Polish, and German (with very basic French and currently learning Spanish); and I am in the process of starting up my own Non-Profit Organization. I don't know if this would be enough to overlook my poor academic output however. And I don't know if this works in my favor or against, but I have duel citizenship, Canadian and Polish, and will be spending the upcoming year studying at a prestigous German University, Freiburg.

    Also, I very much want to get into the 4 YEAR Program, NOT the 6 YEAR program. Its not that I'm tired of being in school, but I do have to consider time and money, and starting the 4 year program would not be such a hard pill to swallow.

    I was wondering, what are my chances of acceptance based on the points I outlined? Is there hope? AND if there IS hope, what steps would you guys recommend me taking to strengthen my application? I have about 5 courses I can take in free electives (/2.5 Canadian credits) and I know I will have to take some basic science courses (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc) and do well. Should I take the MCAT at the end of my studies (I feel I could do fairly well, as I do well on tests whenever I put in the effort)? Are there specific jobs you would recommend, or specific volunteer experience that looks best?

    I am very interested in applying to Lodz, Warsaw, Poznan, Gdansk, and Krakow, as they all have strong reputations and are accredited in the US/Canada.

    Thanks so much to anyone who is willing to help

    Your chances of getting in are great as long as you have money or be in debt for the rest of your life from student loans.
