Waitlisted today and thrilled to be!!! :D 

CGPA upon applying: 3.45, CGPA after spring semester: 3.44, CGPA after winter semester: 3.50

LSAT: 160

Good ECs, Good PS, Diversity factor

I got an email letting me know a decision had been reached. 

No interview as of yet, however, I've taken french courses at McGill my 4 years here!

Waitlisted is one step closer to admission! :lol:

Thts a great way of seeing it! I was pretty disappointed when I found out I was waitlisted today, but I guess there is always a positive side! 

Best of luck!

To all the people who got waitlisted, did you get at least an interview with the university or some sort of contact from the Faculty of Law before getting your response?

No interview nor contact. 

I got an email exactly at 8pm saying a decision has been reached... even though my Minerva status had changed in the morning. 

Good luck.

No interview. They emailed me saying there was a change in my application status on Minerva.

I just got waitlisted yesterday

cGPA: 3. 87, no LSAT, good references and ECs 

What are the chances of an acceptance at this point?

Got waitlisted today too.

cGPA: 4.0/4.3, 160 LSAT, pretty good ECs/PS

 

Does anyone know what the McGill waitlist is like? In terms off % of the waitlist that ends up getting accepted, or similar stats from previous years? Obviously nobody knows for sure, but it'd be nice to know if it's like 50/50 or if it's closer to a 1/100 kind of thing haha

Have any mature students heard on the waitlist yet ?

I am still waiting for any change in status.   I was also told by a creditable source and someone familiar with university admission (not from McGill, but a university elsewhere) that it's not a bad thing to not be on the wait list, because the wait list has no rank.  At least, Ready for Review might mean there is a possibility to go straight to acceptance rather than to be wait listed.

@WaitingOnTheHorizon Thanks for your answer. All I can offer is internet goodwill and positivity to get through this difficult time of waiting. Also, I really hope that you do get a change of status and the status should be accepted :)

I genuinely wish this for everyone who still waiting!  Like everyone else posting here, I exposed myself a lot on this website and if I were to be refused, then I hope others who are accepted get to live this dream to the fullest.   
GOOD SONG.  I LOVE IT.

Waitlisted last week. I am happy of this news (better than a rejection) but very surprised and it confuses my plans. I have accepted Queen's but McGill would mean my family and I can stay in Montreal. 

If anyone has any information about the waitlist, please share :S :) . Should I plan for Kingston or wait... It will be very appreciated ! 

cGPA: 3.4 L2: 3.8 LSAT: 167

    • The notion that everyone's doing better than you is a ridiculous concern, unless you're a solid C student. It would be strange NOT to call such a concern ridiculous. And if everyone is ACTUALLY doing better than you, the problem is the fact that you're a C student, not the fact that everyone is doing better than you. And, again, that's not a ridiculous concern, it's one that has to be taken seriously.  
    • And worth saying that law students are PRIVILEGED. Having downward spirals over getting some Bs is NOTHING compared to having them over much more serious and damaging issues. One thing that keeps me from spiralling is remembering how lucky I am, how much worse it can be and how much better off I am than so many other people despite whatever problems I’m having.
    • Ok, but I can fall into downward spirals really easily, too. I don’t have a label for why that is but I know I’ve been that way almost as long as I can remember. But it isn’t anyone else’s fault or anyone else’s responsibility to get me out, though I appreciate the love and support of those who can and do. My meltdowns are my issue that I have learned to deal with as best as I can. I can’t control what other people do and say.
    • More seriously, people are not entitled to uncritical reinforcement of their self-esteem.  No doubt it would make them feel better if they were, but they aren't entitled to that.  If I want to wear fishnet stockings, great for me, but I'm not entitled to validation from others.  
    • I went to the one in Feb but I brought both my parents with. A lot of other people did as well.
