  1. "What is required to be a competitive candidate?A competitive candidate in the General Category will have completed a minimum of three years of undergraduate university study, (although most of our admitted students have completed a four-year Honors degree), have an A- (82-84%) average (GPA 3.7) preferably overall, but particularly for the last two full years of study, and an LSAT score above the 80th percentile (160 or above)." "The Admissions Committee considers all grades but will focus particularly on the last two full years (or equivalent) of undergraduate study. A competitive candidate in the General category will have an A- (80%-84% / 3.7 GPA) average, particularly for the last two full years of undergraduate university study, and an LSAT score above the 80th percentile." Quoted from Western Law.
  2. "Applicants with less than three years of university: We also welcome applications from individuals who have demonstrated through the length and quality of their non-academic experience, an ability to successfully complete the JD Program. Applicants who have not attended university or who will have completed less than three years of university as of June 1st of the year of admission are eligible to apply if: 1) They are at least 26 years of age; and 2) They have a minimum of 5 years of non-academic experience. These two conditions must be met as of September 1st of the year of admission." @BiPhan
  3. No subject area is preferred when applying to Law School. At University of Toronto Law at least, the rigour of programs are recognized (e.g. engineering performances will not look the same as humanities performances, given the intrinsic differences in the rigour of each program). Windsor Law considers the "nature and content of the program taken." In any event, your only objective is to perform well in which ever program you are in. The FAQ for admissions at the University of Toronto MD states the following: "You are expected to take some courses that correspond with your year of study in your program. If you are applying during your third year of study, at least three courses should be at the third year or higher level. If you are applying during your fourth year of study, at least three courses should be at the third or fourth year level. You are not expected to have a large number of lower year courses when you reach the upper years, however, it is understood that courses outside you major area of study may need to be taken at an introductory level." I'll assume this also applies to Law 100%. All students in high school are given the same work to complete. You're just like everyone else. There is no easy route. The implication that your 95% average is due to you taking an easy route is hilarious to me, and of course, false. You haven't even started University yet. Please stop.
  4. Hi dtor3, Yes, this is possible. Once space opens up and restricted priority is removed, you may enroll in the class (and drop your previous one). Most students try to complete their breadth requirements in Year 1 or 2, but it's not necessary to do so.
  5. Undergrad class suggestion

    Unfortunately, it actually doesn't matter if you're taking an "honours" degree at a college. My main point was that you're attending a college. This, respectfully, is not to the same standard as a "university" degree (as per Ryn's comment, OLSAS is very clear that only "university" grades are taken into consideration). With that said, college work can although build your overall Law School application. I hope this clears things up.
  6. Undergrad class suggestion

    If I'm not mistaken, to be eligible in applying to Law School, you must study at a recognized university - not a college.

  10. @boo Admission Standards: General/Access Category descriptions (both quoted from the Queen's Law website) are mentioned below. General: "A cumulative undergraduate average of less than a “B+” (77–79 percent, CGPA 3.30) and an LSAT score of less than 157 (70th percentile) are not competitive for admission in the General category, unless graduate degree work was completed successfully." Access: "Applications in the Access category are encouraged, but please be aware that a cumulative undergraduate average of less than a “B” (70–74 percent, CGPA 3.0) and an LSAT score of less than 151 are normally not competitive for admission."
  11. Cumulative @ Windor vs. L2

    Windsor Law looks at your cGPA. Quoted from Windsor Law: "The Admissions Committee considers an applicant's entire academic history regardless of how a service calculates the cumulative GPA score. However, if the applicant scored significantly higher in the later years of his/her course of study, then this will also be considered by the Committee." Hope that helps.

  14. @Diplock, Do you feel (is there reason to feel) that the courtroom over-time has turned out to be a competition between Lawyers, instead of a mindset on only prosecuting crime/defending your client? Thanks!
