  1. Don't know how helpful this is, but last year I got accepted Jan 5, but only got a merit-based scholarship offer after welcome day (which was sometime in early february - i forget the exact date). A few other people I spoke with also got their scholarships after attending welcome day.
  2. To all the CEGEP students, don't worry! I originally applied from CEGEP three years ago with an R-Score of 33.9 (at the time of application, if went down after my last semester), and did not even get called for an interview. I was dead-set on McGill, so I decided to complete a BA at McGill and reapply. Now, I have a 4.0 cGPA and got accepted in January and I'm very happy that I got to do an undergrad in something that I find interesting before going into law. I really believe that it was for the best that I did not get accepted straight away when I was 18, so even if you don't get accepted, DON'T LOSE TOO MUCH SLEEP OVER IT! If you get accepted and you feel ready for that challenge, then great. If you do not get accepted, you still have so much time to work on getting that opportunity. And, most importantly, don't take it personally if you get rejected:your application simply was not as strong as the others in your group, but that does not mean that you do not have what it takes to one day get there. In any case, best of luck as you await to hear your fate!
  3. I had 57 credits completed when I applied this past November. By the end of the fall term (December 2017), I had 72 and I will finish the rest of my required credits this semester. I was admitted on January 5th, 2018. So, from experience, it's obviously fine to not have 60 credits completed at the time of application.
  4. I'm not sure if several (how many are we talking here?) withdrawals are seen as a negative, but for what it's worth I also have a 4.0 cGPA, one withdrawal (for a required course that I took again last semester) and got accepted a few weeks ago. I am completing my undergrad at McGill, and when I debated withdrawing from that required course I went to see a whole bunch of people (Career services, arts advising, etc.) and they all said that having a couple withdrawals on your transcript is not a bad thing.
  5. I only applied to McGill, because that's the law school that I want to go to and I was pretty confident in my chances of getting in. Luckily, I heard back last week!
  6. French is my first language, so I didn't have a French interview.
  7. I just got my acceptance email today!!! McGill was the only university I applied to and the stress of not knowing was driving me crazy 😜 cGPA: 4.0/4.0 no LSAT Average ECs PS: pretty candid and informal, was just honest about my thoughts/plans for the future (or lack of). Good luck to all those still waiting!
  8. Hi all, I've applied as a university applicant. I just went on Minerva to check the status (even though I KNOW it's too early) and noticed that it says that they received my CEGEP transcript in addition to my university one. I was just wondering if CEGEP grades are that important? My R-Score at graduation was pretty low (30), even though I maintained a 34 during my first three semesters, because my final semester was a disaster (for personal reasons). Are my CEGEP grades even that important? Or will my cGPA be enough? I couldn't find any information on McGill's website. Thank you!
