Is it supposed to change from RFR if they're actively viewing our applications?

nah, no intermediate status

for most of us it'll be RFR for many, many months

Also in RFR, starting to wonder when the first offers will start going out.

Last year Dec 06 I seen offers coming in. And here we are today Dec 09 not a word.

I wonder if Pandemic/work from home situation may have delayed the offer communications..

Previous threads mention, they would email us of any sort of communications. Patiently waiting for an email. Let's goo!

If I remember correctly they said to be patient at one of the information sessions as they will have to adjust to working from home. It's understandable, but I just wish we had a bit more communication about the process without having to contact them.

Can confirm they will definitely send an email. I'm in my undergrad at McGill and when I was accepted to my current program I remember receiving an email (good times lol)

I got an email from them on Dec 2 asking me to attach unofficial transcripts for my French non-credit classes, so I know they’re reviewing our applications but I’m so impatient! :D

Probably half of the McGill threads include posters stating that you will be RFR until a decision is made, December admits are rare, and most people start hearing things in late January/early February, and will keep rolling.

just confirming that it will say RFR until you get an email that theres an update to your minerva status... that could be anywhere between now and July lol. I was only informed of being waitlisted last year in May, and then got a final decision at the end of August! be patient, you'll hear in due time :)

Idk I just see a line that says "Applications processed and under review". I submitted mid October. In early November I was contacted by a McGill admissions officer asking if I planned to finish my undergraduate degree before next year (I'm in third year). Otherwise, I have heard nothing from them. All we can do is wait I guess...

Seems like most schools across Canada had already started accepting applicants. As long as someone writes in the Accepted 2021 forum soon - I will relax as I would know that the process has already begun. :D

Totally. All I am waiting for is someone opens the Accepted 2021 thread. Praying for all. 

The waiting game is on!! Let's go....!

Also RFR, and given the feedback from last year, we will all be in RFR for a while 😊

So true. Looking at how long people were on RFR/ waiting list last year on the forums actually terrifies me. I'd rather they just send a rejection right away but I guess that is the name of the game. Good luck to everyone!

Initial offers went out early December in 2019. Some of us may hear this week (hopefully)!

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
