Any advice?

I am currently writing my personal statement for my LLM applications to U of T and McGill. Is anyone who's been accepted into either program willing to share some advice/tips?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi llkrishll,
I do not have personal experience with either of the Universities but looked at McGill myself. Macleans ranking places McGill in top position. I appreciate the fact that you can apply for two of their programs for a single application fee. The earlier you apply the better. Their deadline is December 15th. At first you complete the online application and upload all their required documents via uApply. Prerequisites are English Fluency (TOEFL score of 100 iBt or IELTS 7.0 or greater), French is a bonus, Bachelor of Laws degree or with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0/4.0, or its equivalent (upper second class). You need copies of your transcript, letters of reference and a research proposal. Good luck!

Hello Melfesh0,

Thank you very much for your post! I've actually already applied online to both universities and the only thing pending is my personal statement. So before submitting it I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what to include in a personal statement. Any suggestions?

Many thanks,
