In the application manual http://www.ucalgary.ca/mdprogram/files/mdprogram/Applican%20Manual%202010_2011.pdf there are 2 ways of calculating GPA for calgary--one using letter grades and the other using percent grades. which method do you use if you have both letters and percentages on your transcripts?
also, are you ranked on only your 2 best years gpa or cGPA?

There is no such thing as ranking. Calgary does a subject review of your entire record and assigns a mark out of /50.

If the OP is non-Albertan, then the candidates are in fact ranked with a complicated formula and top 200-250 are invited for an interview, according to the application manual.
And yes, the manual says the best 2 years are averaged.
Best two years for IP and/or the OOP calculation are used to determine if there is a full file review. If there is a full file review, the complete record is examined and a score is given (as tnfifn says). The score is subjective but certain things are looked for, such as trends, full time gpa etc.
Exactly. It is a common misconception that U of C only looks at the best 2 years.
I am in a similar situation to you. I am hoping that the strong upward goes over well. :)
