I have no expertise but here's my take: based on what I've seen from others on this site and the predictor that is made by a user -- Ryn maybe, can't quite recall -- I would guess you probably have an above 65% chance at Western. For the rest I think the odds are lower, but definitely not out of the question. Queens you likely have a chance. Ottawa's super hard to predict it seems, but likes cGPA. I'm in 4th year too and have almost identical stats -- 3.36, 165 -- and am applying in this cycle, so have looked into it extensively! haha. From perusing accepted / rejected / waitlisted threads, people with our stats definitely get into the schools you've mentioned, but usually later in the cycle or via waitlist if they do make it.
NiceGuyTriesHard posted a topic in General DiscussionThanks for any advice in advance! Here's some additional information. I'm interested in the following Ontario Law Schools: uOttawa, Queens, Western, u of t, Osgoode. Planning on also applying to Schulich and uVic. I'm aware that my GPA likely precludes me from having a chance at uOttawa, U of T, Osgoode -- I applied either way, just in case I sneak in. What I'm wondering is: how much of a shot do I have at Schulich and uVic (is it worth it to apply?) and how reasonable are online predictors of my likelihood into Western and Queens? Some predicted around or above a 75% chance at both, but with the caveat that irregular combinations of high or low LSAT / GPA's may mess with the calculation. I am considering applying to American law schools if I feel I don't have a reasonable chance at making it into any Canadian ones. I also am in my first semester of my final, fourth year. So my GPA and L2 could rise if I do well enough -- definitely better than my first year at the very least. Would push my L2 closer to 3.55, 3.6 depending on how I do. My degree is from McGill in Political Science -- unsure if that's relevant, only mentioning because the u of t admissions homepage stated that they take into account institution quality. Not sure if that's true elsewhere. Thanks!
