Do they have a cut off for GPA? All the accepted GPAs have been above 75% so far.

For what it's worth, I know someone in my year (3L) that got in with a 2.7-2.9 GPA.

What was their LSAT score like? Any disability/extenuating circumstances?

A letter in the mail. The email you should be getting is an invite to the meet 'n' greet.

 

When did you get the email inviting you to the meet n greet? Also what dates are the meet and greet? Thanks.

I got an email saying welcome to the canadian and american dual JD class of 2019 but when I looked on myuwindsor it still said referred to admissions so I was a little confused.. Does this mean I got accepted?

I recall the Windsor site saying 75-76% somewhere in there. I had a low cGPA and a 3.45ish L2. Strong EC's. Hope that helps. I will be rejecting as I got in at a school in my home city happily.

If you got the email you've likely been accepted and the system has not updated as of yet.

My stats aren't too high. I have an 81 CGPA and a mid-high 150 lsat. Really good personal references and I'm assuming a decent academic reference. Also have a few ECs that are social justice oriented

Just noticed my status changed today from referred to admissions committee to Accepted final.

I think this means I've been accepted? Not sure.

 

Stats:

CGPA 3.3

L2: 3.8

B2: 3.9

LSAT: 160 (one write)

 

ECs and LORs = strong.

I'm probably going to wait for responses from other schools to make my decision

I bring hope for others. Accepted today with only a 76% overall average and a 151 LSAT. I did quite poorly on the LSAT, but never intended on writing it again.

Would you mind elaborating on your softs... I have almost the exact same stats as you! Gives me a little hope.

I am older, so I do have a lot of experience. I do have a PhD and teach a bit. I am most interested in becoming a family law mediator and have taken a bunch of certificates and am working as a trainee. I also do access to justice research now that I have graduated. Contrary to many people, I didn't do well on the LSAT but I am intelligent and accomplished. The LSAT is a silly measure of one type of IQ. 

 

I compensate quite well for low stats, which means you all can too!

Thank you for your updates. Were you informed of your acceptance via email or did you check myuwindsor and notice a status change?
