  1. Windsor Rejected 2018

    Windsor has rejected several 170+ lsat people. While people tend to post on forums about acceptances, most people probably don't go out of their way to post rejections.
  2. If you get a rejection, nothing changes on OLSAS. The website should only update if you get an acceptance.
  3. While I congratulate OP for making the waitlist, I would like to point out that based on last year's waitlist, and my own personal experience, Windsor seems to derive some kind of joy out of overflowing their waitlist until September and never cutting the waitlist down. I have to ask, OP, did you end up with a 170+ or something?
  4. Chance me? (166/3.25)

    Hey, thanks for the feedback. I'm not a NB resident, so I assume it'll be harder for me to get in haha. But I'm definitely hopeful! Good to know I'm at least somewhat in the running...
  5. Hello everyone, Recently applied to UNB, and hoping for a sense of what I can expect over the next several months. I have one stellar LOR, one decent, with average ECs. 3.25 is my converted GPA (I think; I did it myself), with a 166 LSAT.
  6. Chances: Low cGPA 2.7; L2 3.4

    I have 3.09/162 and likely won't hear back in Ontario bar maybe Western. Dalhousie will take your last 10.0 credits or something like that, so maybe that's an option if you can kill the LSAT. UNB/Dal, or anywhere with a generous GPA consideration might make law school a possibility for you. But yeah, you need a real score (likely in the 170s) before we can really help you.
  7. Current 1L Dual. Ask me (almost) anything.

    I think, however, that waiting an extra year and improving your ability to get into the regular program would be much more effective and efficient. Consider that you are not even close to guaranteed a job or even articles after you graduate from any school. This is the reality that every student faces. Now imagine taking on that risk, and possibly over double the debt of every other law student. Or, you can take another year, improve your GPA and LSAT, and be competitive at Windsor et al. If someone's stats are too weak to the point where they'll be rejected outright by everyone, maybe they shouldn't be going. And I say that as someone who is likely weak enough to be rejected outright by everyone. I mean, I guess if you really want to just throw $75,000+ away, then go for it.
  8. Chances? [3.0 / no LSAT]

    Of course it doesn't. But I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with setting a goal for yourself. This is obviously achieved through the methods you describe. If you know you need a certain score to be remotely competitive, setting that benchmark allows you to at least estimate how much work you're going to have to do, and how much time you may have to allocate studying for the exam. That allows you to set a goal like "I need to do X number of practice tests," or that clearly my anxiety is debilitating enough such that I need to seek help to get me to the 165 that I *have to get* to be remotely competitive. Obviously the goal should be to get the highest score you can. But if people find setting a goal for themselves to be helpful, why disparage that?
  9. Chances? [3.0 / no LSAT]

    OP: I'm going to disregard most of the responses here and give you my experience being in a similar situation to you. I'm currently sitting at 3.09/166, and was just rejected from Windsor, one of the supposedly more lenient schools in the country with respect to admissions. A 165+ is not going to be a golden ticket to wherever you want to go. If you can back up that LSAT with some stellar Ecs/LORs, perhaps it's a different conversation. However, the idea that a 165+ will get you into basically wherever you want to go bar a few schools like Toronto, Queen's and Ottawa just isn't true. I would highly recommend looking into schools like UNB, or others that fiddle with CGPA a bit to make it more favourable. Also, I really don't see the issue with "aiming" for certain scores during studying. This year, I knew that with my GPA I'd have 0% chance without 166+, and I made that my goal.
  10. Chances

    Your L2 is really good, and with a slightly better LSAT I think you have a pretty good shot at an L2 school. For a CGPA school, you're pretty much out of luck. I'd say likely rejected Ottawa, and anywhere else where they only care about CGPA. For reference: I was rejected Queen's/Western/Windsor/Ottawa with 3.09/162 (CGPA/LSAT), and then recently rejected Windsor 166/3.09. So, aim for L2 schools and you've got a very good chance. Dalhousie you have a good shot (based on the L2), and UNB is a great place to apply to for you. If you want a guaranteed acceptance, write again and get a 161 or so.
  11. Applicant information from Windsor leaked

    Would be interesting to data mine in to figure out the crazy admissions though. The most interesting thing isn't really the personal information (in my opinion), it's the "admit value."

    MyWindsor. Then called them to confirm.

    MyWindsor. Then I called to confirm it.
  14. Applicant information from Windsor leaked

    The good news is you can know that if you get a Windsor e-mail it won't be a rejection. They didn't even bother to send me one.
  15. Applicant information from Windsor leaked

    The information shared really isn't the end of the world. I can see some issues, like if you didn't want your aboriginal status being known to people, and that random law students (who could be your peers next year) now know all of your information. Windsor should count their blessings that OUAC probably doesn't give them SIN's, and those weren't on the excel sheet.
