HMM...then thats strange.
(I dont know about Waterloo nor I have any fact to back my following statement
McGill will probably be the last university to be asking for Proof of english proficiency, reason being that it accepts ALOT of students from French speaking country (France, Belgium and etc). Also, McGIll is situated in Quebec province. Being a proud-of-French province of Canada, Quebec province require less English demand for its graduate. So, one would expect English play a minor role to the screening process. And yes, i did not send personal statement to mcgill as well.
(I dont mean to bug about the score, but whats their average like? I heard this year no one is able to get into McGill?)
Oh and by the way, IELTS of 8.0 or higher is considered VERY good already (the highest is just 9.0 and a grade of 8.0 will be equivalent of scoring a score of 85 on a scale of 100) . So, theres hardly any reason to reject them because their IELTS is 8.0.
Believe me, I've been studying there for about 1 year already -- not everyone speak English well. In fact, those that speak English exceptionally well are either US/Canada or English speaking country (which they already not required for IELTS) only. As for the rest, its not to say they are not good, but they are no better than any of us (some even worse)

Well, you dont really need a guide for that. For online application for McGIll, just go here: http://www.mcgill.ca/applying/online/

Yes, the dateline is well over. From what I heard, they DO have a winter intake (the one thats over is for the Fall intake) but I am not sure about the detail.
