I know mature student applicants who didn't hear back till June, so no reason to despair yet. Good luck!

As a Mature student who applied to others civil schools, I will have to tell the admission office to dimiss my file if this is going past May. The limit to accept/decline offer is May 1st for most civil schools.

Mature student here, too. My file has been "Ready for Review" for several months now. The McGill website implies that most mature students will not hear back until end late May / June. It's a shame as most other schools require your acceptance by April / May.

Looks like we are in it for the long haul. McGill law has no respect for elders hehe. Good luck everyone!

I am a Mature applicant and I was accepted today. My French interview was last week. It is important to note that I am also a re-applicant. My refusal letter last year advised that I improve my French and re-apply. Good luck to all of you and please feel free to message me with any questions!

Good luck to all still waiting.

    • I have had to resort to a timer (count-down, not count-up) many times over the last few months. A timer is something I would occasionally resort to even in normal times, and would use a timer of between 25-45 minutes. Now sometimes I set a timer for 10 minutes just to get me actually doing something because there's no other way.
    • What do people recommend in terms of how I should organize materials? Whatever works for you. I found the easiest and cheapest method was hole-punching the top left corner and using rings I bought at Staples to separate each section. Professional cerlox binding looks nice but if you want to rearrange or there's an error, good luck fixing it yourself! Some people just use good old staplers. There's no right answer. The exam is largely a page-flipping exercise so your organization method should cater to this. Is it true to that it is recommended to just skip the whole Tax section? Don't skip anything. What you focus on is a different story. Better to update old indices or make my own or buy one? Like @baklava, I made mine in a group. It was annoying to do but probably helped a bit or at least it gave me peace of mind. I'd never have paid for an index though. If you read the materials, highlight well, and learn to work the ToC, you'll be fine. Where do I find old indices? My group worked from an index from friends who had written the bar the year prior. Should I be updating indices as I read the material? Or should I read all the material once, highlight it and then go back and update indices? If you plan to update indexes entirely on your own, as you read the materials, that sounds like a humungous waste of time with very limited payoff. Either work in a group or learn to use the ToC. Don't try and create an index by yourself, that is way too much work for one person. If you create a group index, yeah you just update as you read that section, so reading that section will take you longer than the rest. Is there a recommended amount of time we should spend on studying each day? Do the math yourself. How many pages do you need to read? How many days do you want to read them in? Divide one by the other. Read that many pages a day. Is it worth it buying practise exams and doing them? Do we have time to do them? Practice was absolutely essential for me. If you can access free exams great. If you can't, I guess you'll have to buy them?
    • Yeah, the toddler does help. Though it's sad to see him go through this period where he's learning to walk and talk, but has no access to play groups, libraries, swim classes, or any other place to learn to be social. I know he's little enough that he will just learn when we have the chance, but it still hurts a bit.
    • Everybody I've talked to has said that the burnout and lack of motivation is worse this year than ever before, so at least the curve should be down for everyone! The only thing I have found that helps me focus is shame. I use a timer like I would if I was working to show myself how much time I'm wasting on other stuff and guilt myself into working more. Is this healthy? Probably not. But it's getting me through the last two weeks of exams.
