 just called and we will only hear back late December early January according to admissions lady on the phone

so confirmed: redditor and my friend’s cousin = dirty liars, we have nothing to be stressed about (unless u are either of those two, then maybe) 

Thank god you called! Glad I don't have to nervously refresh minerva for the next couple of days now.

It's strange, the person who started the accepted to McGill thread here also did so without actually having an acceptance. I wonder if it's the same person.

Does this mean acceptances will start going out at that time? Or does everyone have to do french interviews before they get accepted? Sorry if that’s a dumb question, just want to be sure!

Not everyone, just people who have not indicated anywhere in their file they can properly speak the language. She said the first acceptances will be late  december or early january , so enjoy the break everyone (and hope for an  xmas  miracle?)

Edit: I should note, they are very random with these. Some of my friends who speak no french and did not indicate they did didn't get calls. Some of my friends who are perfect francophones and speak french at home, did. Its technically a bilingual school, but, from what friends have told me, even the "passing bilingualism" they're interviewing for is an overstatement of what is truly necessary (and correct me if im wrong this is just what I heard)

I think that person just wanted to start a thread so they can be aware when people do start getting acceptances because they didn't post their stats, whereas the redditor did

That's correct. The person who started the thread here started it so people could post when they received an acceptance. This individual wasn't aware that that isn't how we do it here. An honest mistake. The person on reddit was clearly lying, and it appears that she has now deleted her posts, after being challenged. A good example of why we have an edit limit of an hour here on ls.ca.

    • Hey guys,  I have a couple of questions. I know basics about the gpa conversion (the chart they use -4.33 scale) but I'm a little confused on the number of credits drops in my case, as I took some credit/nocredit courses with no percentage/grades given. I have 135 credits in terms of graded ones (I did a fifth year) but I have 144 total credits.  If I drop 6 half year credits my GPA works out to 3.78/4.33 If I drop 8 half year credits, my GPA works out to 3.85/4.33 If I drop 10 half year credits, GPA is 3.90/4.33 My LSAT is a 163. Does anyone know how many credits I would be able to drop in my situation and also what my chances would be? I can't seem to find answers in the threads or when I call the office its opaque Thank you
    • I dont really think its a problem. I took psych 100 and a 200 level course in my final semester. 
    • There is an environmental law class, and there's an environmental law club that organizes negotiation competitions involving mock 3-party negotiations between a government, a corporation, and a local community. Students also go to UBC every year to participate in a TRU/UBC/Uvic environmental law negotiation competition. Last year TRU sent multiple teams and took home 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
    • Does anyone know how long it takes for schools to receive your lsat score after you finish the written portion? 
    • A more thorough response now that I have a minute.  No one whatsoever would question why you are applying to Ottawa for health law such that you have to justify it by talking about being close to federal institutions (which doesn't make a ton of sense anyway since much more health policy is done at the provincial level) and explaining that the tuition is lower.  Ottawa is, unquestionably, the strongest school for health law in Ontario.  It isn't even close.  The UofT used to be strong in health law, but due to departures, retirements, etc., the program is a mere shell of what it used to be.  If you look at the list of faculty now, it is Trudo Lemmens and two people who are retired.  And if you look at the purported list of courses, they list anything even vaguely relevant to health law, including administrative law and patents.  Those aren't health law classes.  As for Osgoode, they don't have much of anything relevant to JDs.  They have a professional LLM in health law and a certificate program that is not for current JD students.  Looking at their current list of JD courses, they have Disability and the Law taught by an adjunct, Environmental Law, which no one considers health law, Health Law taught by two adjuncts, Law and Psychiatry taught by two adjuncts, and Patents, which no one considers health law (and the guy teaching it doesn't specialize in pharma patents anyway).  They do have a couple of people who do health law but aren't teaching or whose work is only tangentially related to health law.
