Tell me this:
What does “recommended by department” mean in the context of my McGill grad school application status??
AM I IN?!?? I NEED TO KNOW!!!
[Edit: Brian says the department has to approve (or “recommend”) you first, then your application is sent on to the Graduate School. Generally, the departmental recommendation is what goes – as long as you have the basic requirements to get into the Graduate School, they’re not going to turn you down. So…THIS IS GOOD!!!]
