I have looked at their admission website and they said the LLM program prefers applicants with a Bachelor background in Law or equivalent area of studies. I am currently an undergraduate engineering student at McGill. Will that shun the door for me to apply for the LLM program? Also, I heard the LLM program requires no French at all. Is that true? and btw as I am finishing up my first year, I have some questions about getting into law with a degree not related to the profession.
1. What kind of extra-curriculars and how much ECs do they expect? Do I have to have leadership positions? Does it hurt or not help at all if I am involved in most technical ECs (Solar team, engineering design, research etc)? Since engineering program has stringent credit requirement, I don't have much flexibility to take extra humanity courses and get involved in lotz of ECs as a result, how do I cope with that?
2. Question about Letters of recommendations (LOR). Is it recommended that a non-engineering person write LOR for me ? And what role does LOR from an engineering prof play in LS admission?
3. As for LSAT, when is the best time to start preparing? This summer perhaps or after 2nd year?
4. What kind of financial aid do they offer for Canadian citizens outside Quebec? I mean beside those government fundings and loans, do they offer you tuition waivers or the similar kind of FA?
I know my questions may be a bit long but being an engineering undergrad really adds the complexity of gaining admission into LS. Anyone with an engineering degree looking for LS can help or someone with similar experience. Thanks a ton
