Rejected at U of T 2017

Recommended Posts

Rejected on March 20th. 

cGPA of 3.5 (UofT) 

B3: 3.6

LSAT (161, 167)

Relatively mediocre ECs

 

At least I'll save 45K over 3 years by going to Western, no big deal.

Did well below my PTs on my December sitting so this wasn't unexpected, life goes on

 

Are you planning on going to TRU? IIRC, you previously mentioned you had an offer from there.

As of right now, yes. Holding out for Calgary but as a BC resident I'm happy to head to TRU if that's how it shakes out.

For the love of God and all that is beautiful, please try to enjoy the next four years of your life rather than fixate over law school admissions. Obviously aim for good grades but don't let getting into law school become your life.

Rejected from the big batch in March or April I can't even remember

cGPA: 3.69

LSAT: 157

w. work experience in risk, AML/CFT, anti-bribery and corruption etc. Good ECs and LORs and diversity (Asian, African, Middle Eastern)

Even if I resit the LSAT unless I get a perfect 90th percentile+ I don't think my cGPA will ever allow me admission here after seeing the accepted thread lol

My CGPA at the time I was admitted was pretty similar. And they look at B3, not CGPA. It's not insurmountable.

What were your softs and what was/were your essay(s) about?

Nothing too mind blowing- student government was really the only soft I mentioned in my essay. Other than that, my PS was mostly about why I wanted to be a lawyer- which I can't imagine is terribly unique. I basically just wrote what I felt. My essay was about the difficulties I faced when my parents left the country before I started university, and how I ended up transferring from my original university to Guelph.

I see. Thanks for the insight.

I'm not sure what B3 is, and I'm an international student so I had to get my transcripts sent in through WES, from a 3.71 they rounded it to 3.69. Also, I have no idea how much of my transcripts they've shown to the law schools lol. Lastly, what was the LSAT score you got in with and which year you admitted in?

    • sorry and i realized one more thing- a lot of my courses (fairly content heavy) dont show up on the alberta transfer credit search tool, has that happened to anyone and their course still got transferred? thanks
    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time
