yes, of course! I did not expect it because of my LSAT  (148, 153) GPA: 3.80, Master's GPA: 3.80

I have lived in many countries, I speak 4 languages, have a Master's degree. Worked with refugees, international organizations, worked as a tutor, etc... I grew up in an unstable country and was able to overcome financial and educational obstacles. Very strong Ec's basically and LOR's.

You seem  to have a similar background to mine:D ! Congratulations and AWESOME news for you!  You will surely sleep better at night now and you can start preparing.  

.....I'm still waiting everyday, but I am not losing hope...

Good luck and I hope you receive some good news soon! I know how painful it is to wait :/ I almost gave up hope but I guess McGill appreciates diverse experiences and looks at the applicant in a holistic manner.

Waiting for that as well. I've heard that it was by phone and looking at past years calls should be made in the next 1-3 weeks.

    • Alright.... let's all take a breath and stop the dogpile I can see coming. If anyone has anything constructive left to say please do. OP, you asked for advice and you're getting it. Take what you want and leave the rest but don't throw matches unless you want a flame war.
    • I will never understand why people who explicitly ask for advice from STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET are then confused/shocked when people tell them things they don't want to hear.    I can sympathize with you to an extent. Your situation reminds me a lot of things I've had to deal with.  I'm an immigrant and I had immense pressure put on me by my very old-school family on numerous occasions when I had to make life-altering decisions. I can't even count the number of arguments we had about my undergrad and pursuing law. In the end, I had to make the decisions that were best for me, and while that can be a tough pill to swallow for your parents (especially for super traditional eastern europeans like mine), you have to do it for yourself. Realistically your parents aren't going to be around forever. Then what? You've wasted a huge chunk of your life pursuing something that maybe your heart wasn't even 100% in. That's a way bigger bummer to me than some familial disagreements.  Realizing what you want vs what your family wants was something that took me a VERY long time to negotiate, but I'm glad I came to the realization sooner rather than later.  One last thing - barring other "hardships" you've made vague references to - you need to realize how extremely fortunate you are to even be in the position you are in. You're 25 years old, your parents are paying for your schooling, and you have to **gasp** decide between Law and Medicine. 
    • Dude. Cut it out. Practice what you preach. I get it, sometimes people say things online that you don't like, but you have to be prepared for that when you post. Like or dislike the wording, you asked for opinions, you are getting opinions. Responding to criticisms with attacks is not the way to go.
    • You're a 25 year-old undergrad whose parents have paid (and will continue to pay) for your entire education. At some point, you need to detach yourself from familial expectations and start defining your own identity. That can be painful to hear -- it was for me -- but it's part of growing up. Your parents won't be there to live your life for you.  I get it, it sucks to have someone tell you that you haven't made the best decisions. Up to a certain point, your first instinct is to defend those decisions and lash out at the people who are offering you advice because they just haven't been in your shoes! Resist that urge and listen to them - they're giving you that advice precisely because they've been in your shoes. 
    • Wanting to make ones parents happy is not immature, and not the sole motivating factor for me. You do not know anything about me besides what I have typed in this thread. I have had to make serious life decisions and overcome hardships which is part of the reason I started my undergrad degree at age 20 as opposed to you who seems to find it important to brag about finishing law school at my age. You're an incredibly arrogant person and probably a testament to fact that narcissism is on the rise in Western society.
