Just checked and I got the email earlier today!
That rounds out all my acceptances for this cycle. I'm honestly kind of surprised I've heard from everywhere already because my stats aren't amazing by any means, but it perhaps highlights that soft factors are still quite valuable (Master's degree, autobiographical sketch was nearly full, took a few years away from school to gain professional experience, etc.)
Law schools like to maximize applications, but thay says nothing of your chances. You should not bank on getting into McGill law with a 154 and your GPA whatsoever. I'm just saying temper your expectations.
You didnt provide much about your ECs so I can't comment. At a glance they weren't spectacular, which they would often need to be to overcome a poor lsat score or poor GPA.
I was wondering if anyone who applied for Crown summer jobs in Ontario has heard anything yet? And if so, how long after the deadline did it take to hear back? I say this because the closing dates varied quite a bit.
Thanks in advance!
Of that, I had no intention. That is all. I was aware that a poor LSAT punishes Francophones as mush as it does Anglophones. I was just saying that it is an unknown factor to me as to whether the school specifically markets itself to Francophones in their orientations (by addressing linguistic capabilities and R-Scores for CEGEP students with just as much attention as they do the LSAT and the GPA). That is all.
I appreciate your advice regarding the LSAT, I am currently investigating as to whether I should take it another time. It is a lot of work and my thesis here at Oxford is in need of equal if not greater attention. I will see how the year plays out but I am not signing up for another test unless I can 100% say that I can get a score anywhere in or near the low 160 range (which would require at least a couple of mid 160s on some mock tests).
A source of my optimism though comes from this page:
As indicated by the chart at the bottom, with my GPA and LSAT percentile range, it is Possible and not Unlikely that I would be accepted to McGill university. Couple that with the fact that the school has admitted in its own resources here
That they admit that the lowest scores that they will accept range from 150 -152.
They have also said here:
that they do not have a low-end cutoff when it comes to LSAT, GPA, or R-scores, and encourage you to apply, especially if you are deficient in only one department. The other option that I have, although I have not investigated this, is applying as a mature student following the expunging of my LSAC records after a five year period. Do you have any insight on if this is a good strategy?
I trust that provides a bit of perspective. I am curious though, is there anything above that I mentioned about buffing my CV that could use some improvement?
