Application Turn Around Time

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how long it takes for them to review your application once they have everything? (I submitted my Fall grades last week and am wondering if it's too early to be on the lookout for an email)

I honestly think that is very hard to predict. I am a U of C alumni so they had all of my info (including LSAT) as soon as I applied in late October. Haven't heard yet. I also know someone who submitted their application in September and has not heard back yet.

I finished my app up mid-january last year when my references uploaded the necessary letters. Heard back a week later!

I applied Sept, my app became complete Jan 1 when I uploaded my fall transcripts, and now I'm just waiting. I'm sure it has much to do with competitiveness and organizational factors, rather than everyone hearing back within 1-2 weeks, or whatnot.

    • 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
    • Hello,  I was recently admitted to law school for Fall 2021. I am curious about what law students do in the summers between semesters. Is it typical or expected that you find an internship after your first year? Are there any organizations or businesses in BC or Alberta that regularly offer summer internships or work opportunities for current law students? Is there anything I can do in the months between now and when classes start to improve my chances of getting law related summer work? Thank you for the advice.
