McGill Architecture

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Saw some people here got offers from Mcgill already and my status is still "Further review required", so I was just wondering if the all the offers are out yet.

I am really nervous right now since I got rejected from Waterloo and only got accepted to UM and UBC (applied to carleton as well).

Um have you sent in all your documents yet? Like transcripts, portfolio, or maybe English proficiency proof (if you need one)?

This taken off the Minerva website:

Yeah they recieved all three of them already. Do you know if they have sent out all the offers yet? Are they even going to tell me I am rejected...

I doubt they sent out all the offers, I know a couple of people who's files are still "ready for review" and they meet the minimum requirements

Oh no...seems like they are right.

people with 93 will probably end up on the wait list even with a good portfolio?
My average is only 94.2 and it is going down! Do you think if they are that strict on the marks? I don't know what to do if I got rejected from them.

Your average seems amazing to me! I do think that McGill is really strict on marks, as in, they take pride in having some of the highest acceptance averages in the country. But your marks seem to be a lot higher than necessary for it. I mean, they say its a 91% cut off. Just keep waiting,you'll probably hear back from them within the week :)

I got 96% as well. I've heard people getting in with an avg. like 91% (although that was two years ago and the cut-off fluctuates every year). Besides,an amazing portfolio certainly does help! 94.2% is not a bad mark at all, but I think it's a bit strange that your status says 'Further Review Required' if you've already submitted all the documents. If they HAVEN'T made the decision whether to accept you or not they'll put 'Ready for Review' in your status; if they decided to put you on the waitlist, I believe they'll notify you by changing your status to 'Waitlisted' or something like that. So if your status is still 'Further Review Required', there might be something missing from your files. I'd be the best to call them just to clear things up!

My average was is in the low 90's.
Admission is only half based on marks, the other half is portfolio.

I had to accept the offer and put down a deposit in April, so my guess is that there could be deadlines past May 20th. I agree that it is getting close to the end though. Hopefully you'll hear from them soon.

I'm also waiting for the decision of McGill Arch and CivEng.
Yesterday, I just found out on the Minerva that they require further review. It is listed that they have not received my English proficiency proof yet, which is confusing because I have sent them my IELTS result and confirmed if they have received my IELTS scores.

Hopefully the process goes smoothly. :(

If everything is received, then don't worry about it because they told me the status won't go back to ready to review.

Where else did you apply? I don't know if I should stay for UM or go to UBC...
