    Haha!! Sushi, Chinese or Indian is good for me, you pick! I remember being in you guys' position. I was going completely nuts, frankly. I know we need reassurance when we're waiting for such an important decision and I'm happy if this little anecdote can help you all feel even a little better. I don't want you all to let this waiting affect your well-being. Your mental and physical health is more important than anything else

    Just a quick anecdote regarding the wait time. 30 something years ago, my own father was admitted to his law school only one week before the beginning of courses. Bottom line : None of you has reason to lose hope as of now. Hope this will make you feel a bit better. Good luck to everyone.
  8. @WaitingOnTheHorizon Thank you for your kind words Should you be rejected from McGill, you could still attend the faculty that has already accepted you and apply for a transfer to McGill after your first year. I know it is not a perfect solution, but if you really want to attend McGill specifically, that would be an option for you. Best of luck and keep us posted!
  9. Hi @WaitingOnTheHorizon First of all, you don't need to frantically check Minerva. I was checking it a bazillion times a minute when I was in your situation, and I ended up receiving my acceptance email hours before my status even changed on Minerva. I don't know if all admissions are done this way, but chances it'll be your case too . (don't start frantically checking your email inbox now lol) Don't worry about not having contacted for an interview. A lot of admitted candidates are never contacted whatsoever between the moment they submit their application and the moment they are accepted. It was my case, and the case of a lot of the people I know here at McGill. I know the waiting is driving you nuts. I know the feeling. Unfortunately, there's really nothing anyone waiting on a response can do besides waiting. If I can make you feel any better, keep in mind that pas de nouvelle, bonne nouvelle. I know it is not the most reassuring thing to read. However, you have already been accepted elsewhere and you have a strong application. Cool down, you'll most likely be accepted Also, keep in mind that McGill's admission committee go through +- 1800 applications and have to narrow it down to about 180 admissions. They obviously receive more than 180 applications that would deserve an acceptation. Having this in mind, you understand we're talking about a very time-consuming process when it comes to choosing who's in and who's not. I know the waiting is heavy on your nerves, but you really need to try and calm down. You don't want your anxiety to become a treat for you mental or physical well-being. I hope I was able to help you relax a bit. Feel free if you have any other question. Good luck!

    Hi @ebatman First of all, congratulation on your admission! If you don't know Amigo Express yet, I suggest you take a look at it. It's a rather popular carpooling website on which you will most likely find someone to take you to and back from Montreal for a much cheaper price than Greyhound. https://www.amigoexpress.com/ Hope this helps!
  14. @esmeralda77 Your GPA is within what McGill is looking for. With good personal & recommendations letters, you will have a chance to get in for sure. Give it a try! Keep in mind your personal statement makes a big difference. Good luck!
  15. Hi @esmeralda77 McGill does accept students with a three-year bachelor degree of arts. Keep in mind that the main thing that makes all the difference between getting in or not is not so much what kind of degree you have (some Cegep applicants don't even have a degree), but rather what kind of grades/background/resume/overall personality/reference letters you have. It's rather hard to evaluate your chances of getting in knowing only that you'll have an undergrad degree of Arts to support your application. What kind of cGPA do you/will you have when applying? Did you write the LSAT? What kind of extra-curriculars do you have?
