  1. Doesn't look good. Western What is required to be a competitive candidate? A competitive candidate in the General Category will have completed a minimum of three years of undergraduate university study, (although most of our admitted students have completed a four-year degree), have an A- (82-84%) (GPA 3.7) average preferably overall, but particularly for the last two full years of study, and an LSAT score above the 80th percentile (160 or above). Queens Your academic record and LSAT score are weighed most heavily in this category. The other Admissions Philosophy criteria are weighed carefully in making distinctions between applicants who are equally competitive on these bases. Competitive applicants should have at least an “A-” average (GPA 3.7) in their best two years of their undergraduate degree program at a full course load along with an LSAT score of at least 157. For a student who does not have two years at full course load (ie. at part-time load), more emphasis will be placed on their CGPA, as calculated by OLSAS, which should be at least a 3.3.
  2. Really asking for trouble to talk about Tiers and ranking You can have your own opinion and I can have mine. U of T OZ Queens, Western Ottawa, Windsor Don't want to go any further..... Ottawa and Windsor are reputable and well respected law school in Ontario and Canada.
  3. Forgot to mention something about Queens. Your LSAT scores are 153 and 160 average is 156.5 I checked the latest acceptance thread. The LSAT score for recent acceptance is 158 to 160. Your average score of 156.5 will be looked at after those with average LSAT of 158 & 157 and decision will be made based on your highest score-160. Your GPA, B2 and LSAT are all competitive. Your average score of 156.5 is probably the cause of the delay. Unless the applicant pool is very strong this year, your chance should be good That was why I put your chance at Queens ahead of Western. Good luck.
  4. you mentioned in your post " It might be worth mentioning that I did not carry a full courseload throughout undergrad" Last 2 years and Best 2 years. Good luck
  5. Sit tight. I am going to make a bold prediction. Assume you have 2 years that meet the B2 and L2 requirements. With your 3.82 B2 /L2 and GPA 3.75- your chance for Queens- 80% before mid-June Western-80%- before mid June OZ-70% - before end of June You don't have to take any more courses. You can PROVISIONALLY (NOT FIRMLY) accept Ryerson now , you can keep all your options open till july 3, 2020. I bet you will get an offer from another school. Let me know when you do. https://www.ouac.on.ca/faq/difference-provisional-firm-olsas/ What is the difference between a provisional and a firm acceptance? Applications: Law (OLSAS) Categories: After Applying A provisional acceptance means that you can indicate that you want your applications to other programs to remain active. All provisional acceptances automatically become firm on July 3, 2020. A firm acceptance means that you will be removed from the wait lists of all other choices on your application.
  6. are you waiting for another Ontario school?
  7. hire a private tutor. what is your L2 and B2? Which schools did you apply?

  15.
