I just got the email.

Stats are 79% best two and 161 lsat. I have been working at a law firm for the past eight months. My references came from one of the lawyers at the firm and two professors.

I am a Sask residence and completed my bachelor degree this last fall.

Hi all,

 

I might have asked this question last cycle but I honestly do not remember the answer. Does TRU look at discretionary applicants later in the cycle or at the same time as everyone else?

 

Thanks!

Accepted today
L90: 3.51
LSAT: 162

Leaning towards accepting but want to hear from other schools. TRU wants an answer in a week. I supposed if I accept and pay the $200 deposit then end up deciding to go somewhere else instead, I can just withdraw my acceptance and lose the $200?

Ugly dog Im wondering the same thing. Iv been waitlisted at a few other schools, and havent heard back from many others. I want to hold my seat at TRU (and im actually leaning towards going there!) but dont want to withdraw completely before hearing from other schools!

 

If anyone knows how this works with TRU please help clear it up!

Heres a direct quote from the application:
"Thompson Rivers University will share with other Canadian law schools the names of successful applicants, but will share no other information. "

 

Im not sure what exactly that means at the end of the day. Will they actually actively seek out other schools to let them know. Are they just saying that XYZ students have been admitted or do they mean "successful" as in XYZ students have been admitted and have accepted?

I believe that is correct. I did that with my second choice school and will now forfeit the deposit as I got my acceptance to TRU yesterday. Sucks but I decided that an extra $300 in the long run would be worth it to hold a spot just in case.

If you don't mind me asking, what school did you pass up on

Hi all,

 

So does Thompson Rivers still use your L90 in their evaluation?

 

Thanks!

When I spoke to them a couple of days ago, was told that they, like UofC take a holistic approach to the evaluation. There are no real stats out there...and she seemed a bit reluctant to give me any particular numbers as far as GPA and LSAT go....

^ Pretty much that.  I do believe they still look at your L90 but just like other holistic schools it's the application as a whole.  Just looking at the stats from the people recently accepted you can see there's no real trend there.
