It'll come down to your personal statement and EC's, your cGPA will not single-handedly cause you not to get admission to western

 

I was in a similar situation as you and received acceptance, my cgpa was 3.07, L2 3.7, LSAT i was accepted with was 162, so your L2/LSAT are better than mine, and cgpa isn't that much off, western really does focus on your L2.

 

I had pretty good EC's though, started my own business during undergrad, worked 25+ hours a week with school since grade 9, volunteered at a few places, etc

At what point in the cycle did you get in if you don't mind me asking? I have 3.3 cGPA, 3.77 L2 and 163 LSAT so kind of similar to you. Though I did not start my own business in undergrad...

Hey, not Commerce, but I've obsessively read the forums and would bet that you'll get into western but it won't be until April/May. Many posters last year had similar stats to you (our GPAs are similar):

Hope this helps a bit.

I don't remember the exact date, but it was sometime early-mid April. 3.3cGPA is quite a bit better than my 3.07cGPA, and your L2 is better as well, so I can see you getting in earlier.
