What the hell?

Subject: What the hell?
What is up with Concordia´s graduate economics program?

The admission requirement to get into the masters program is a 3.5 GPA from an accredited University...

Am I the only one who thinks that this is kind of high?

(in reply to: What the hell?)
Mcgill admission to the masters in economics:

"Hold, or reasonably expect to hold by September, a bachelor´s degree for entry into the M.A. program, or an M.A. in Economics for entry to the Ph.D. program. The minimum CGPA (cumulative grade point average) at the undergraduate level is 3.0 (B) out of a possible 4.0, or a grade point average of 3.2 out of a possible 4.0 in the last two years of full-time study. However, over the last several years, almost all successful applicants to the M.A. program or the Qualifying Year program have had at least a 3.3 CGPA (B+) out of a possible 4.0 on their entire undergraduate record. Applicants to the M.A. and Ph.D. programs must have very good grades in their courses in macroeconomic theory, microeconomic theory, and statistics or econometrics, and mathematics."

Now Concordia:

Master of/Magisteriate in Arts (Economics)
Admission Requirements.

An honours degree in economics, from a recognized
university, or the equivalent, with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 is required. An applicant may be required to take up to 12 prerequisite undergraduate credits in addition to, but as part of, the regular graduate program. Some applicants may be required to pass a qualifying program, as a condition for entry into the regular M.A. program.
