Any international student acceptances?

Recommended Posts

Hi- Not sure if anyone here can answer my question, but here goes: 

I applied as an international student, and wanted to know if McGill had accepted any international applicants so far. I'm assuming everyone accepted so far on the forum is Canadian, correct? I could be wrong haha

The gpas I’ve seen have been on the Canadian scale so it doesn’t look like it however you can always call and ask!

Just in case you're curious, if you're a french national (I believe; may have changed) your tuition will be the same as a non-quebec resident Canadian (to the tune of roughly 10000 a year). If not, it's somewhere around 30 thousand something a year.

They sent out an email and forgot to BCC everyone so we saw the email addresses of everyone accepted. Most are from Canadian Universities, did not see any international university email but some people didn't put academic emails.

Any idea on how many people have been accepted at this point?

yeah it says 65

edit - i should note it was 65 when we got the email on the 14th. I wouldn't worry too much, a couple of names including my own were also on the U of T list. Can't imagine I'm the only one struggling between the 2 though at 95% certainty I'm going to McGill.

I vaguely remember McGill typically sending somewhere around the mid 200s in acceptances. No school has a perfect yield rate (not even Yale). McGill typically has a great yield rate because of its reputation coupled with its low tuition. We have lots of students who got into u of t, and even top American schools, who chose to come to McGill. But regardless, more than 180 acceptances will be sent out.

 

Note though that a few dozen seats typically go to cegep and mature students, who's processes don't start until march/april/May.

    • If they do, that's an anomaly.  Full course load is five per semester, that's the norm. Each university sets their own policy for full-time status and it varies. Queen's may be more accepting than other schools of four course semesters but, technically, that isn't the standard  definition at Canadian schools for undergrad of a full course load. 
    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
