I'm curious as to what the forum thinks my chances may be of getting into McGill law.
I do not plan on writing the LSAT, because I am only interested in applying to McGill due to its BCL/LLB + bilingualism + strength/specialization in international law + living in Montreal. My GPA is 3.91 on a 4.3 scale and I believe it equates to 3.85 or something when my transcripts are converted to a 4.0 scale.
I have strong softs such as a lot of extracurricular experience, I have a Masters degree in IR from a university in Belgium where I graduated with distinction. I speak Spanish, Russian, and my French is at an intermediate level - b2 but I'm aiming (hoping) to be able to get c1 by the summer. I have a decent CV (parliament, research, starting in the public service), and I have decent writing/editing exp. I've also traveled a lot, lived in several countries.
Do you think I'm foolish for not writing the LSAT? I am just going to be busy with work and I'd prefer to take on more work/practice french/pursue my interests rather than spend time studying for the LSAT. But perhaps I should reorient my priorities if many of you suggest that getting into McGill might be too difficult for me or too much of a gamble w/o a strong LSAT score.
Thanks and I do appreciate any responses, I don't care if they're harsh.
