I think without some really exceptional work experience or references, it'd be tough. Western puts a lot of weight on the L2 and yours is pretty low. And the LSAT is lower than the median as well. The mature category isn't really an "easier" category, it just allows you to use your post-grad experience to counterbalance weaknesses in your application.

Would you not consider a PhD/Post-Doc to be exceptional experience? I just got into Osgoode with below median LSAT and GPA and I attribute that to my MSc. I feel like schools look highly on advanced degrees.

Thanks for reply, Do you mind if I ask your stats?

I think getting a phD itself may or may not be. But if you can draw attention to outstanding work, publications, etc. you accomplished during the pursuit of those advanced degrees, that would certainly count.

I've seen in previous year's threads people getting in with lower stats than you. You might have to wait until the next round of admissions or to get in off the waitlist, but I think it could be possible. Would you consider taking the Feb LSAT? That could definitely help you increase your chances.

I am taking the Feb LSAT which is in almost 3 weeks from now. The sad part is that my problem is in RC, which needs longer time to be dramatically increased.

just doing preps, no other options !!

    • 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. 
    • This could stretch through first week of Sept.
