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)!

    • I should’ve  applied to Dal as well lol.  I was awaiting my second LSAT take at the time and didn’t know whether it was worth the punt given my initial score.    Could you comment on the feasibility of a move back to Ontario after a few years of practice under my belt?   I’m not opposed to living out east, saving up, and returning afterwards.     
    • True. Pandemic changes things; expectations may be different. I guess the point is do something productive. 
    • Fwiw, I had 4 Ws sprinkled throughout my undergrad (minor hopped). I didn't explain them at all when I was admitted to McGill back in the day.  Re: everyone else surprised by other stats. McGill is not just a numbers school. CV, references and letter of intent are all very important. 
    • JY from 7Sage makes the argument that, if the LSAT is important to you, you will do this. He is aware his schedule is more demanding than other study programs. If you cannot do a 34 hour per week study schedule, he would probably suggest taking more months to complete the program. Waiting until next summer to write the LSAT is not out of the question from this point of view, not is waiting until the summer of 2023! I, myself, am in your shoes. I agree with JY in theory, but in reality, I skimped massively on my study time. I am now waiting to get accepted to a law school with an LSAT below 160. I believe I would have a higher LSAT is I had done what JY told me, but I could not get the time off work. 
    • Yes? You're supposed to. If you're from out of province just have your school send it to OLSAS. If you're from ON then I think there's a way you request via OLSAS itself
