  1. Xpresspost is Canada Post, so it would be subject to the whims of the rotating strikes, unfortunately. Hopefully your documents get delivered soon!
  2. My numbers were pretty much exactly the same and I got admitted without references. I'm also not a NB resident (but I do live on the East Coast). I think you probably have a pretty good shot, just make sure you get your application in as soon as you can! Good luck!

    Long-time lurker, first time fishing for chances. cGPA(OLSAS): 3.73 LSAT: 154, then 158 (I already know this could have been better but I only had so much money for retakes) I feel like I had an engaging, strong personal statement, but that might just be bias. Did my undergrad with a double major in French, many awards during my undergraduate degree, master's degree with perfect GPA (4.0), consistent volunteering on campus (mostly involvement in student radio and newspaper), lots of on-campus job experience (working with international students learning English), over a year of full-time work experience with the federal government, involvement in union and committee initiatives, etc. I'm just wondering what people think because I have another offer that I will possibly have to make a decision about before I hear back from McGill. If my chances from McGill aren't super, then I don't want to hold out and miss the other opportunity.

    Accepted to UNB 2019

    Just got my acceptance email from Wanda! GPA: Between 3.7 and 4 (not sure what it is with drops, but closer to 4.0 or over with drops) LSAT: 158 General category, out of province (NL resident), strong personal statement. I'm very excited to have this opportunity, and I'll be thinking about accepting. I hope to wait for a few other schools to respond first.

    Application Incomplete?

    The same thing happened to me and I was told that this is normal and that all of this information should update over the coming weeks.

    CV Priorities

    When writing the CV for the McGill, is it important/necessary to include descriptions of the different experiences? For example, my work history has varied quite a bit since I left high school, and if I elaborate on all of them (description of tasks and accomplishments) it leaves me with very little room to go into detail about my volunteering and extracurricular activities. I have read that they are quite strict on their 2-page limit, so I'm wondering what is best to leave in. I am hesitant to remove any of my work experience because I think the highlights I have already chosen will give the committee a good idea of the skills I have built over the years, but I worry that it makes my volunteering and extracurricular activities seem secondary or unimportant to me. Any advice is appreciated :)

    Incomplete Application

    Great! Yeah, I definitely paid for everything ahead of time. Thanks!

    Incomplete Application

    I just received an email from the University of Ottawa about my application having been received, and when I checked my student account it says that my application is incomplete. It says I'm missing all of my transcripts, my biographical sketch and verifiers, my personal statement, and my letters of recommendation. However, all of these documents were submitted to OLSAS well before the deadline. Is this something that happens in the processing of applications? Should I contact OLSAS, or should I just be patient?

    Should I check on transcripts?

    I did, and they got back to me the next day to let me know that all my transcripts had been received. Never hurts to ask!
