  1. Accepted to Western 2018

    I just got the email as well! cGPA: 3.75 B3: 3.76 LSAT: 165
  2. Accepted to Queen's 2018

    Just got the email! cGPA: 3.75 LSAT: 165 (December 2017 score)
  3. Accepted to Ottawa 2018

    In! cGPA: 3.75 LSAT: 165 (December 2017 score)
  4. Accepted to U of T 2018

    They have to be, because I'm sure they're waiting to see how many people from round 1 and 2 will reject offers. So, you're always being considered until you get that rejection e-mail.
  5. Updated Chances? LSAT 160, cGPA 3.72-3.73

    They're pretty decent... LSAT and GPA seem to be at the median and your softs look like they're above average. Unless you blew up on the personal statement or had an egregiously bad reference, then I'd say you're in, more likely than not.
  6. Accepted to U of T 2018

    I'm pretty sure the second round has begun (people posting being accepted here), but I'm not convinced it has ended. I assume they need to sort through and consider applicants that have just gotten their first LSAT result (December write) so it is likely they will carry on into late January.
  7. Accepted to U of T 2018

    They just started on a Friday with this round right after getting Dec LSATs... Acceptances should likely continue into this coming week. Nothing on their Tumblr suggest they're done with second round offers.
  8. Factors Other Than CGPA/LSAT?

    I'm not denying that smart people go into "difficult programs." However, there's a reason why admission averages for programs like Engineering across Ontario are significantly higher than social studies programs. More smart people go into STEM programs, hence why they're difficult and curved harder. But also, let's not pretend a social studies major's weekly schedule is comparable to a STEM major's schedule; they have longer class times and labs etc. All these factors make it obvious that STEM programs curve harder than social studies programs. Take proof as evidence from U of T Law's class profiles for the past few cycles: https://www.law.utoronto.ca/about/jd-first-year-class-profile How did Gender Studies and Social Sciences majors go from 4% of the class to 19% of the class in a few years time ? All UofT did was to change the admissions formula to give cGPA more weight relative to the LSAT. One would think that this would bias AdComs towards admitting those with higher GPAs. Oh look! Social Sciences and Gender Studies majors have increased substantially as portions of the class since those changes. Engineering and STEM grads have taken a beating! Is it due to other possibilities? Perhaps. But I think this data is pretty compelling evidence to suggest that social sciences majors have the highest GPA curves, on average.
  9. Factors Other Than CGPA/LSAT?

    It's not a pissing contest... It's the truth that few want to admit. I myself don't have an engineering degree, but it's a well-known fact that engineering departments (at least at my school) have the lowest curves relative to other subjects. And yes, on average, the quality of a student graduating from U of T or McGill is not comparable to students from Ryerson, York and so on. AdComs know this; let's not pretend they don't.
  10. Factors Other Than CGPA/LSAT?

    It makes difference on the margin. When it comes to the last few remaining spots, they're definitely more critical in their evaluation, as they should be. Let's face it... A 3.7 in engineering is harder to get than a 3.7 in a social science. A 3.7 at U of T is harder to get than a 3.7 at Ryerson in a comparable program.
  11. Your Dec LSAT score just went up? Mine is up too!!
  12. You have to learn to love the speed at which governments do anything which is usually almost always slow.
  13. Accepted to Ottawa 2018

    Just to clarify... Did you get accepted into the program with a 3.75, 155 as a mature applicant?
  14. Same here! UOttawa says all my components are completed as well as of today.
