Status: items outstanding?

Does everyone have this message?

"Application Status
Status: Items outstanding (see below)"

If not, is this mean that I really have an outstanding chance of getting in? (Of course not!?)

I was just curious :)

    car202: Ha,ha. That is a great interpretation, unfortunately not the
    correct one. It means that McGill has not received all your needed documentation to process the application. What does it say "below"?

    Seriously, it probably means that your senior mid-term grades have not yet been received at the admissions office. That is usually the last piece of information they need. Make sure that your high school has sent them.

    Good luck.

    I have that on my application right now because McGill needs my college transcripts (I applied for a transfer). See "below" for what documents you need.

    Actually, I'm not really sure if it's your Mid-term grades since I applied there already and mine says "Ready for Review" even though I don't get my mid-term grades until Jan. 31st. Check and make sure everything you sent in has been received because that's the biggest problem since the school's in Canada and it takes a longer time to get there and process.

    Same with me--I've been ready for review since October, I only get my mid-term grades on Tuesday. I figure I'll send in the transcript so that they can prove they have everything. Can't hurt, right?
