Congratulations!! How exciting! Did you receive an email, or on Minerva? Great stats! 

I received an email, and now Minerva shows as "Admitted." My official letter will apparently be available tomorrow.

@anonymous95 Congratulations! You have great stats. Did you have a French interview first?

I didn't even have a French interview! I have decent French experience, as in I've studied it in university a bit, and managed to take an upper year interdisciplinary French course, but I never studied French until university. I openly admitted in my personal statement that I'm not fully bilingual, but that I'm willing to work on it.

@anonymous95 Got it. Congratulations again! We have very similar stats....like, very similar, haha. Hoping that means McGill will be sending me some good news soon. I feel great about my French but I'm not sure if they will want to give me a French interview.

Congrats to those admitted and best wishes for all those awaiting !! Quick question: is there any chance that a mature applicant with fairly  strong profile gets a decision early in the process ?

I just wanted to note on here that for other applicants not to worry. A very small amount of acceptances go out (proportionally) in December at McGill. Think of it as a pre-early acceptance round. To those who've gotten in, congrats and I hope you choose McGill! To those who are sitting anxiously, don't worry, a very large number of acceptances will go out in January and beyond (moreso than other schools, proportionally).

Accepted as well!!! 4.0 GPA, 162 LSAT, strong ECs.

I won't be accepting my spot, so I hope this opens up some space for others eager to get into McGill. Congrats to everyone!

Thank you! I didn't have a french interview, but I indicated in my application that I'm fairly bilingual

Mature applicants would normally go through an interview with two professors. There might have been other dates, but last year I am only aware of such interviews being held in late March, with decisions being taken a few weeks after.

Does anybody know what the policy for international applicants is in terms of calling for the French interview?

Well done, guys! What was your cGPA in percentage (prior to OLSAS conversion)? 

My school doesn’t actually give percentile grades. Anything from 90-100 is an A+, 85-89 is A, and 80-84 is an A-. It’s on a 12 point scale. This screws up our gpas because if you get a 99% in one class and a 89% in another, you’d get an 11.5 average which is around an 87.5, since they average the 12 point scores rather than the percentage scores. 

But for comparison, my grades were:

first year: 2 A+s, 1 A, 2 A-s

second year: 4 A+s, 1 A

third year: 5 A+s

fourth year: 4 A+s, 1 A
