Very excited to say I have been accepted to McGill as of yesterday! 

CGPA: 3.98/4.3

I'm not sure if McGill looks at L2 as heavily as some schools, however, my L2 GPA is roughly a 4.2/4.3 

EC's: Volunteer work at a homeless shelter, summer position in corporate services at a well known law firm, various other minor volunteer experiences.  My volunteer experience is not as extensive as I wish, which makes me think my EC's are not the strongest.  However, I worked 2-3 jobs for the duration of my degree, at times working full time with 5 courses. 

Reference letters: Strong I believe! Both from undergraduate professors. One of which is the head of the psychology and neuroscience department for whom I taught a first year psych/neuro lab.  

 

Good luck to those still waiting, you never know when that seemingly stagnant status may change :)

Do they care for the grades you get once your accepted or do u need to keep your GPA the same:)

Based on my letter and what I've read elsewhere, a graduation condition and a GPA condition are distinct. My admission is contingent upon my graduating. However, if a specified GPA is noted in the letter as a condition, this is a GPA contingent condition. 

This is not to say the GPA does not matter at all. Imagine if you changed your mind on law school and your last semester grades were way below your average, affecting your ability to pursue different paths. That being said, it does alleviate some stress to not feel as though the condition is so stringent.

I was accepted two weeks ago, and this weekend I've decided I will definitely accept. I have been a long time lurker of this forum and I figure I'll add my info to this thread.

I had a GPA of 3.91 on a 4.3 scale and I think it was the equivalent of about 3.86 on a 4.0 scale when I did the conversion. I did not write the LSAT. MA. I was accepted just a few days after my French interview.

I'm really looking forward to this experience. I keep thinking about how many interesting and intelligent people I'll have the privilege to share a classroom with...

Hi everyone!

Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Got my acceptance earlier in February.

CGPA 3.78 from undergrad, 4.0 from MSc (neuroscience & biochemistry). Undergrad and MSc both done in Alberta. Never took the LSAT. Really strong LORs (profs who knew me for 5+ years) and work experience, lots of scholarships, great PS. French is my third language and I'm a little nervous about that, but I've taken classes all in French before and did fine... so I'll just work super hard & I'm sure it'll be okay :)

Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

Hi all, first time posting. I've lurked on this thread for a while (I've found it both anxiety-inducing but also helpful) but never posted, hoping sharing my stats will help y'all.

I was accepted yesterday on the condition that I finish my MA. Undergrad GPA is 3.7/4.0. LSAT 153. Strong ECs, as I am deeply involved in local community activism in Montreal. Good LORs as far as I can tell, both from professors who knew me decently well and liked my work in their classes. PS was about my activism and my experience as LGBTQ+. French is my second language and related to my MA, so I did not have to do an interview. Also worth noting that I was an international applicant (USA) and a reapplicant (rejected in 2016.)

I accepted my offer. Good luck to all those still waiting!
