  1. Campus culture for mature student

    Hi I'm coming in at 28/29 as well. You will be a couple years older than the average but nobody will care. We'll fit right in.
  2. Accepted today, 162 LSAT 3.42 cGPA, 3.62 L2 Strong letters & background.
  3. You were 100% right! Accepted today!
  4. Congrats garfield, when were you accepted?
  5. Great GPA. I think you will have a better chance at other schools (such as Ottawa) rather than Western because Western values LSAT score highly. 159 isn't bad and may get you in in April. 160+ would be better of course -- if you don't get in this year you will get in next year with a better LSAT.
  6. Thank you for sharing Draken! Fingers crossed! And toes!
  7. swingit, you are delusional and should listen to the advice here. You might be a good engineer, but you are not have a highly competitive law school application. You might still be accepted to a good school. But you might not. Deal with it.
  8. Chance? 162, 3.42, L2 3.62

    OK, thank you very much for your insights Draken. Even though I'm 28, I don't really qualify as a Mature student, because I haven't been "out of university" for 5 years since high school; I've been in university constantly since high school. I thought that it would be more appropriate to have a work reference and an academic rather than 2 academic references, since my undergrad was so long ago. I guess I didn't think to have 3 references; I was under the impression that 2 was standard.
  9. Crossposting this from the UWO forum. If it's not allowed, I apologize. LSAT 162 cGPA 3.42 L2 3.62 Good letters of reference, one from Master's Prof and one from a lawyer at a law firm where I work. Decent job experience, small business owner, good volunteering, fluent in couple languages, in my opinion had a well-written personal statement. Ran for MPP last election, worked as a legal interpreter, and had a cool Master's project documenting a dying language. Did my MA at Western and did great. Did 0.5 years of a PhD at UofT. I only completed 2 courses there and then left the program because I wanted to change careers. But my grades in those 2 courses were fine. I'm mostly worried because my cGPA is quite low, and the admissions predictor says I have almost no chance of entry. Thoughts?
  10. Predict-O-Matic For Ontario Law Schools

    LSAT 162 cGPA 3.42 L2 3.62 Also have MA degree, and work experience in law firm.
  11. My last undergraduate course was taken in 2009, and my last semester average was 87% (not sure what that is in OLSAS GPA). I wonder why leaving a PhD program would hurt me? Obviously I was qualified enough to be admitted to the program, and I didn't get any low grades, just incompletes from when I left. Thanks for your response.

  13. This is kind of annoying for me, since I took a lot of summer courses and finished my undergrad in 3.5 years. My first 2 years were poor whereas my last 1.5 years were great. According to 2016 Ontario Admissions Predictor my L2 is good, but I guess nobody knows if Western will agree.
