  1. Thanks, I received an offer a few days later; very thankful that McGill didn't keep me waiting after my interview! Just one interviewer, but I believe that the multiple-interviewer process might be CEGEP-specific (just a guess). My interviewer didn't go into too much depth regarding my application; she just asked general questions: "Why McGill?"; "When did you learn French?"; "What areas of law are you interested in?"; etc. I believe that she also stated that there would be no penalty for answering questions in English; as mentioned before, the interview is only meant to test comprehension. I answered questions in French, and switched to English once or twice in order to better express myself (I expect that this is very common within the law faculty, Franglais is peak MontrĂ©al đŸ˜†)
  2. I had an interview back in November or December, and received no notice. I was asked by the interviewer if it was a good time for me, but I didn't inquire further about rescheduling; I imagine there must be some flexibility there. You will have the choice to respond to the interviewer's questions in either English or French; the interview is meant to gauge comprehension, not your level of spoken French. My interviewer spoke at a measured pace, and was happy to repeat questions if necessary. As I recall, the questions were fairly straightforward, and related mostly to my application and my desire to study law at McGill. As long as you are comfortable with your ability to comprehend spoken French, you should have nothing to worry about. I didn't prepare for my interview (I grew up in Quebec), but I suppose that listening to French radio or watching movies/TV in French would be helpful. Best of luck with your interview, and with your application!
  3. I 100% agree with the previous two posters. LSAT questions, at least in my mind, have a certain feel to them: once you understand how questions are formulated, and why a right answer is right even though other answers make sense, you should be able to identify those right answers much more quickly. For logic games in particular, 35 minutes can go by in a heartbeat. Your average time per question should decrease significantly as you complete more practice questions and tests, as you become more familiar with trends and patterns in how these questions are formulated. I really liked my McGraw-Hill LSAT book (2013 edition, hopefully other editions are similarly helpful); regardless of publisher, look for something that really dives into the question subcategories. Hope that helps; good luck and happy studying!
  4. I studied on my own and did well; tutoring/classes definitely aren't necessary for everyone. Not all LSAT prep books are created equal, so I'd get a couple from a few different publishers (I really liked my McGraw-Hill one!) and see what works for you. Practice really does make perfect; after learning all of the question types and strategies for each, I wrote a practice LSAT once or twice a week, and spent the rest of my time reviewing question types with which I was struggling. I believe that there's been some mention elsewhere in this forum regarding newly free LSAT prep resources, so you could take advantage of those too. Best of luck with studying, and feel free to ask more questions!
  5. Some scholarships were distributed at Welcome Day a few weeks ago (I received a letter containing details of the scholarship at the event). However, no update on Minerva, just the letter itself.
  6. This is probably very premature, but just wondering when (if?) McGill sets up Facebook groups for incoming students – or is this something organized by students themselves? UofT has had a group up for accepted students since mid-December, and I'm curious to see if other schools do the same thing.
