hey, i know this sounds like a stupid question, but I wanted to know if TRU offers a Jan start date for first year? I know there are a couple in the states that offer Jan semester days, for anyone who doesn't want to wait till next year September, but does TRU also do that? 

 

Also, the website doesn't give any info about the min. required GPA or LSAT score for admission... would be really helpful to know if there was a possibility of getting accepted before paying 108$ just to find out that my GPA or LSAT score didn't even meet the min cutoff they are looking for :(

 

any info would help!

There is unfortunately no January start as 5 out of 7 first year courses are full year ones. However, for questions like these, I always add that it is best to contact the admissions office directly.

Also, as far as I know, TRU has never posted minimum GPA or LSAT scores because they don't have them as they are fairly holistic in their admissions. Best advice I could give is to take a look at previous acceptance threads to get an idea of the numbers to see if your stats are anywhere in that realm.

Good luck with your applications!

I think I've looked into every J.D. program in Canada and I've never seen a January start for any of them.
