  1. Hey all, Just a quick question regarding the personal statement. The website says that the applicant must submit a 500-word essay referred to as the Personal Statement. I submitted my personal statement but the title was not exactly "Personal Statement", rather it was along the lines of "McGill Personal Statement" (I don't want to give the exact title for privacy reasons). Although it is perhaps a somewhat difficult question to answer, do you all think that this title difference would affect my entrance chances? I know it's a rather small thing, but still, I don't want it to affect my application at all.
  2. Hey all, I've been doing a bit of planning over the summer in regards to my future post-undergrad (I finish this upcoming year), and I was thinking about applying to McGill law after my last year. McGill law is not the only plan I have -- as I also intend to apply to several universities for graduate studies -- but I was just curious what you all would think my chances for admission are. 1. Grades: I had a 4.0 GPA (all grades are on a 4.0 scale) my first year, 3.9 second year, and 3.9 third year. If cGPA matters I calculated it to be a 3.93 GPA. Also, I have no idea if program matters but I am currently a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) student. 2. LSAT: I will not be writing the LSAT as the only law school I am interested in is McGill due to its uniqueness. 3. Work experience: Lots of work experience in leadership positions and also lots of experience dealing with stressful situations in my jobs (probably worked a bit too much and sacrificed some potential volunteer work opportunities). Experience working with the government, as well as experience working in a completely Francophone environment. 4. French: My first language is English and all my studies have been entirely in English; however, I have self-taught myself French and, as I mentioned previously, I have an adequate level of French to work in French in the service sector. I would say currently my level of French is intermediate-advanced but closer to advanced. 4. Extra-Curriculars: Volunteered through Hockey as an official, coached sports in the past, vice-president for a club at my university, a bit of experience volunteering with youth offenders and with students with learning disabilities. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I think I could strengthen this part of my application (if not for this year, perhaps in the future if I intend to reapply). I think that's all that's relatively important, but if there are any questions that you have to clarify my situation please feel free to ask. Cheers
