Hello, it’s so nice of you to show concern & help students who are applying. I’ve two questions:

- I applied in late sep 2020 (app due Nov 1). Minerva shows “Ready for Review”. Can you advise when usually schools start communicating offers? 

- What are my chances per your knowledge? Undergrad GPA 3.87, extensive volunteer/EC & leadership activities. Graduated with an MBA. 5 years full time work exp.  Discretionary background (social/economic status). Finally, took French classes. 

Thanks so much in advance with whatever insight you may be able to share.

Hello, 

I'm at McGill Law as well. Most people have extensive volunteer ECs but if you're comfortable in French with your GPA you should be likely to get in, it's hard to tell exactly.

does McGill recalculate your GPA when they look at your transcripts? I did my undergrad outside of Canada with a different grade/weighting scale than McGill and i'm wondering how they standardize this sort of thing

Hi ! Do you know anything about Cegep students applying to McGill ? I have a 33 R-Score, but the average is 34.6. I also have a lot of EC's for my age. I know McGill doesn't accept many Cegep students... Do you think I have a chance?

    • Does the teaching of the Charter in 1L and then federalism in upper years make any sense from your and your classmates' perspectives? This was a contentious issue among the admin and faculty, with the justification for the change being that federalism from the outset confused the hell out of 1Ls with no foundational understanding of law to work with, but some professors being (IMO justifiably) strongly opposed to the change since federalism predated the Charter and thus Charter litigation arose from the context provided by previous constitutional jurisprudence.
    • ISLR seems to be public law's spiritual successor given how almost everyone dislikes it right now.  On the topic of 1L rants, ISLR in theory could have been a great class.  However, the way it is taught turns people away from the content rather than engaging them, which I think defeats the purpose of having students respectfully engage with Indigenous issues in a legal context.
    • UVic publishes this demographic chart every year: https://www.uvic.ca/law/assets/docs/admissfinaid/LSAT-GPA Demographic Chart.pdf All but two matriculants scored 159 or higher, and the two that didn't had 4.0+ GPAs. 
    • Alright so I calculated a 0.819, is that accurate with my scores?  3.7/4.0 - so the ratio difference between 4/4.3 1.075 so I can just multiply 3.7 x 1.075 to figure out my 4.3 score correct?  So it would be 3.97/4.3.  LSAT: 160  I think I calculated right, if I'm wrong please someone let me know!
