Is there a way you can tell that they're reviewing my file?

Recommended Posts

The reason I"m wondering is that when I log in, they still say I can send in a letter for special consideration, which I don't need to do. 

 

Thanks!

Well, I was accepted, confirmed my acceptance, paid the deposit, and yesterday received a letter confirming that my confirmation and deposit had been received, and yet I too see that I can send a special consideration letter (which I do not need to) when I log in. I think this is just something that is shown to all applicants, so do not worry about it. As for knowing whether the file is currently reviewed or not, I honestly have no idea if and how can you determine that.

Does it ever change from "Thank you for submitting your completed application.
Please note there may be outstanding supporting documents we require to complete the assessment of your application." until you've been accepted/rejected/waitlisted?

Mine stayed that way until acceptance, I don't think they notify you at all of when they actually review the file.

Sorry for the lateness of reply - I did not have any time to visit this website in the last month. To confirm the words of the previous poster, mine remained that was until acceptance, too. So I do not think there is a way to telling whether they are reviewing

Mine was the same! It even took a day to update after receiving my e-mail acceptance from Wanda. I applied to do my MBA as well, and strangely enough it did show when my MBA was under review. It's too bad they don't do that for law, they probably just get too many applicants.

    • Yes. There is a 'tryout' process, or at least there was (new) last year, but it is very easy. We had to read a journal article, answer some questions about it, and perform some citations work pursuant to the McGill Guide (legal citation guide) within a couple of days. It actually takes longer than you might think, but not long. Around 45 people made it on to law review, they wouldn't tell us how many 'tried out'. 
    • So you’re saying you didn’t work your ass off to get into university, maintain a high GPA, pass the LSAT, get into law school, maintain good grades in law school, kill articling interviews, work yourself to the grindstone during articling, pass the bar, and now you’re where you are? this whole “white privilege” discussion is total bullshit and nonsense. I don’t understand the guilt people have for being successful. And you shouldn’t be guilty for your parents having worked that hard to provide a good life for you as I’m sure you will for your kids. 
    • Maybe in some positions, but definitely not in others, including mine.  Unless I have court, I schedule whatever I want and do whatever I please. As long as the hours are there, no one cares. 
    • Work. I love having a schedule that I cannot miss for any reason and getting paid to adhere to it and work on practical, real-life matters. I love having that sense of direction too, as well as just knowing that no matter how small the task I'm working on is, it is still meaningful. I learn a lot more too and retain it far better. I want to wake up in the morning and get started on my day, whereas when I'm in school I constantly yearn for the weekend. I feel a lot more anxiety in school... I get a bit of anxiety at work too, but I think the stability and meaningfulness make it a lot easier to deal with. Getting paid and not having to worry about how I am going to pay the bills is also an added bonus, but I would probably prefer school if it was structurally more similar to a work environment and things were taught in a more hands-on, practical matter.
    • We did actually get an email from the Parkdale intensive back in March, i.e. after the clinic recruit, informing students that they still had unfilled spots so I actually got the sense that it wasn't a very popular clinic, for whatever reason.
