  1. Hi all, Had the pleasure of getting the ol nod from McGill this year and slated to attend in the Fall. Some family concerns have brought into consideration that I may need to transfer to a different Canadian law school- one in my home province- in the future. Is this doable wth the joint curriculum?
  2. McGill 3-year schedule?

    Hey everyone, Can anyone explain how the 3-year format for the BCL/LLB works out? Does this mean I can't work any summers?
  3. Refused 2018

    Chirico is right; you need to get the gist of trans-systemia. I think reading McGill's articles on TS help a great deal (in fact, you can integrate similar values or even align your opinions) with these works. https://www.mcgill.ca/centre-crepeau/projects/transsystemic/articles http://transystemia.blogspot.ca/ Here's my biggest reason: Compare McGill's joint program (a 3.5 year moshpit) with USask's JD program with a 1-year civil law option. Assuming both schools have similar stats, what are your reasons for learning both systems at once versus doing it in consecutive, but separate years (3+1).
  4. UofT Payment Question

    I would have put the quotes on attended rather than claims haha. Sorry to hear about this situation. Your situation will depend on either: 1). You paid UofT Did you pay the $500 non-refundable deposit? May be worth a shot, but again, it's non-refundable. I would be surprised if the admissions team didn't raise eyebrows when a non-student's $500 cheque/ money order addressed to UofT law came in. Did you pay an entire year's worth of tuition? May be worth trying to get back... again, I would be surprised if someone didn't raise eyebrows. 2). You paid the student/ transferred money directly to the student From the way it's framed, this looks like it's the more likely scenario. Best to consult a lawyer !
  5. Accepted at McGill 2018

    Accepted a while back. cGPA above 3.7, LSAT above 160. Had French interview. Notes from Admitted Day: 60-65 students. Had a sample mini-class on Family Law. Some parts spoken in French. Laws examined; text provided in both English and French. The School/ Community: IMO people seem holistic. The school is on a hill. The hill gets icy. There are many law clubs. Most classes in NCDH (the law building). Most students complete in 3.5 years, so it pushes 1L summer a year forward and so on.
  6. In Queue 2018

    @woodlylaw Way too much identifying information! Unless that's what you're hoping for 4.0'er!
  7. Accepted at McGill 2018

    Any reason why Admitted Day is so early? Surely they haven't already accepted the bulk of their class?!
  8. What should an 0L do?

    Any advice? --> I'm looking to decide which school to enroll in. What are some things I should look at in picking a school solely for future employment prospects? Hiring prospects have been a topic of concern to me for quite a while. As an Albertan, I initially had a great deal of faith in University of Alberta (95%+ post-grad articling rate) but have recently been seeing its decline (sub 70% articling). Prestige seems to carry a bit of weight in the employment world but perhaps there are other metrics that can be useful? I'm sure all schools have their own unique characteristics... but it'd be nice not having to rely on getting a gold medal just to get my resume noticed at a top firm (if it ever happens). So what should I look for? I have no preference 4 living anywhere.

  10. French Language Interview - Time until decision?

    Had the same thing; 10 minutes French interview on Jan 12(?... some time around then ). Have heard nothing since. I'm not entirely sure whether there is a strong the association between an early French interview and an earlier acceptance (if at all).
