Does Western put more emphasis on CGPA or L2?

Recommended Posts

Based on what I've heard/read, your initial ranking is based on your CGPA, then they consider your L2 and softs when they get to your application (I could be getting this mixed up with Queens). As far as the weighting from there, I think it's hard to give a definitive answer on whether it's 50:50 or 60:40 etc. What I do know is that it helps to have a strong L2 (and LSAT as well as softs), if you have a weak CGPA.

 

Disclaimer: I'm only an applicant, so I'm still in the middle of figuring this out myself.

They actually say they place more emphasis on your L2

My L2 blows my CGPA out of the water, so I hope there's more of an emphasis on the former haha.

Do you mind sharing your LSAT score?

 

wrote it 3 times, best was a 169, but I am certain I was accepted on my score of 162 (I was accepted to Western before I got the results that I scored a 169)

    • Isn't there also that satellite New York firm in Toronto that pays on the New York scale?   which would make the claim patently false
    • You didn’t make the wrong choice by selecting Osgoode. I absolutely loved my time there and I think you will too. The beauty about going to a larger school is that you’re bound to find a group of people you click with - even if they aren’t in your section. I found 95% of the people there to be very collegial. No one is going to be ripping pages out of books or trying to sabotage you. I won’t sugar coat it - 1L is stressful. Being graded on a curve against other highly capable students is stressful. Learning a new subject area is stressful. The pressure to get a “summer job” will be stressful. These things are not exclusive to osgoode and the stress won’t be exclusive to you. Everyone will be going through it at the same time and you’ll find people you can lean on. The upper years will be a particularly valuable resource for helping you manage your stress.  There is no point in fretting about September (August in your case). It’s will be a bit stressful but certainly nothing you can’t handle.
