Accepted today as well.  Still undecided between Calgary and a school closer to home for me but should have a final decision in the next couple weeks.

L2 was 3.6ish, lsat 160.  Strong work experience and volunteer experience.  I believe my reference letters would have been very strong as well.

I did make a decision.  I agonized for days and flip-flopped like a fish before deciding but in the end I declined in favour of school at home (UManitoba).  It was a really tough decision but in the end family and building on the life and the connections I've made at home won out.

For what it's worth I really believe that the U of C is a phenomenal school and everyone from the dean down to the students was great through the entire process.  The open house was wonderful and it sounds cheesy but I was genuinely inspired to be around such passionate people.  Honestly I might seriously consider applying for a L.O.P. at some point to spend a semester or two at U of C because it was really that good and I'd love to get the chance to do some schooling there if that worked out.  That's a long way off though and lots of hard work between now and then but it could be an option down the road.

Regardless, the good thing is that another spot opens up at U of C for someone.  Best of luck to everyone out there, wherever you end up!

Just received the email today. This is my first acceptance so I am very excited but I'm still waiting to hear back from some schools in Ontario before I decide to accept. 

CGPA: 3.21/4 calculated by OLSAS

L2: Around 3.9/4 

LSAT: 157 only write 

I had a horrible first year where I failed two courses and used my personal statement to explain my circumstances. Since second year I have had a very strong upward trend which I also emphasized in my PS. This acceptance is a huge relief. Best of luck to everyone still waiting to here back, don't lose hope if you have stats like mine!

    • I am not sure that is entirely true, at least from my experiences. Many of my friends at other schools have had much more work to do for similar courses and I also found their work harder at times. I also think it depends on the professor. 
    • Also, Brock is a "party school." So you might go there expecting easy grades because "if you can walk and talk, you can go to Brock" and get distracted by all the social stuff, whereas you might focus more at U of T because other serious students you meet motivate you. *not to say there aren't smart, serious students at Brock and party animals at U of T too - I'm addressing the stereotypes. 
    • I don't believe it. It's simply true. To pretend otherwise is to spread falsities to high schoolers keen to go to law school who may miss out on an excellent institution like u of t, simply because of fear that they won't get into law school if they did. Not that highschoolers should care about getting into law school 4 years later. But they do. So at the very least let's not get them missing out on excellent education in light of wholly unsubstantiated claims.
    • I just officially finished 2L yesterday, and I have to say law school has been one of the best times of my life.
