Hello, are you from Ontario or Quebec and what is your French proficiency? If you don’t mind sharing. I’m from Ontario and I plan on applying next year. My French is not 100% good

I'm from QC and have C1 French. If you're applying next year, B2 is mandatory, and anything on top of that is a valuable asset.

If you really want to go to McGil it would be a good idea to work on your French. I'd recommend using KwizIQ for grammar (it isn't free but it's superb). I'd also start consuming as much French media as possible. Read French books, listen to French songs, watch French movies. With regular practice getting to C1 or C2 within a year is totally feasible.

I got an offer on Monday evening! Not sure if I'll be accepting or not.

CGPA: 3.89 LSAT: 176

I'm currently in my fourth year of undergrad. I've had lots of extracurriculars and a consistent part time job for the last few years. I also completed part of my undergrad in French and work at a job that involves speaking/writing in French.

Just got the email too! SO happy! It's part of my top choice! Still hesitating between this program in Montréal or in public policy in France. 

French student at McGill, graduated in Arts in 2023. No LSAT. CGPA: 3.9/4.0. Worked as a research assistant in academia and with the city during undergrad. Half year of non-profit work and strong activism background. 

Good luck for others ;))

Thanks so much! Yes, my GPA is out of 4. My CV had a good mix of jobs, extracurriculars, and volunteering. I will say I worked super hard on my letter (which I think is probably the most important thing for McGill). Assuming pretty good letters of rec. Best of luck! I hope you get it!

Did you join a letter of extenuating circumstances to your application by any chance?

Accepted on January 26, general applicant

9.8/10 GPA, 158 LSAT one attempt, very strong softs and references, 3 years of legal work experience and 6 in total in government, master’s degree. I think strong PS. 

Pretty sure I’ll accept McGill over uOttawa, but also waiting to hear from west coast schools and to find out what McGill new out-of-province tuition will be…

Posting as a data point! Accepted today, general applicant. 3.8/4.0 OLSAS GPA, 161 LSAT. Graduated December 2022 from undergrad so some varied federal government work experience, good softs and community involvement!

An admissions coordinator reached out early last week and requested to set up a short call to 'discuss some questions about my file'. The call was a brief/ informal French language assessment to gauge passive bilingualism. The acceptance letter was conditional on the completion of intensive French language instruction at a high-intermediate level prior to registration in the BCL/JD program.

Will be declining as I've decided to stay in the province (Ontario) for my degree. All the best everyone!

Oh I completely missed that you're a Quebec resident. In that case, its a no-brainer imo lol
