I want to take a shot at applying to some of the higher ranked universities of the US. Currently I am attending a Canadian university and I'm going to do a Master's degree at the same university. It's not anywhere near U of Toronto or, say, McGill, but my observations tell me that it doesn't matter where you do your undergrad. degree, I've seen people from my university go everywhere for grad studies. My current grades are not the best, perhaps not the worst, maybe around 3.1-3.2 on the 4 scale. While I do realize that any good grades will improve my chances, I'm still gonna ask this: are the graudate level courses weighted more than the undergraduate ones? Considering that they will be the most recent ones as well.
P.S. In reality I think I should just stop thinking about it and just work hard, but I do enjoy dreaming and thinking about these things
