  1. As we did last cycle, please keep the Admitted threads clear of extraneous discussion. They will remain more valuable and easier to navigate.

    A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not the place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. OT posts will be deleted. Thank you!

  2. Don't worry too much on LOR. It doesn't really worth the paper it is written on.

    Stronger reference will NOT get you an offer... Stronger stats will.

    Just causally mentioned to your professor you are thinking about law school. If they pick up on the conservation, then ask if they can do a LOR for you. Some may be willing to do some may not.

    Totally agree. however, I am a little skeptical right now because they are being holistic and accepting people with lower stats (low 150 LSAT) before the people with 160+ LSAT and 3.7 GPA, so that doesn't make sense to me. if they keep going with their holistic route, I think they might end up being like Windsor. maybe they are going in a random order through applications? we will have wait until the end of the 2020 cycle to find out 

    I think I know why. I think many old timers here also know why.

    Ottawa is doing quite the opposite and that is why they had over 900 offers for 300+ offers.

    But I could be wrong

    Yeah, sorry to be blunt, but the obvious answer is that the stats of people accepting offers to Ryerson are generally not competitive for many other law schools in Canada (especially in Ontario).

    Not to piss on everyone going to Ryerson; I wish you all the best of luck and I'm sure it will by no means be a diploma mill like Bond or Cooley, but it would be extremely disingenuous for the vast majority of Ryerson students to act like they had loads of options but Ryerson was the most appealing.

    Don't try to sell that bullshit about how great Ryerson is to legal employers either; it won't play well. Something like "I wanted to study in Toronto" would be fine to say and "but I couldn't get in to UofT or Osgoode" can politely be left unstated but everyone is going to understand that's the implication.

    Good points

    I'm currently finishing up my 3rd year and planning on taking the LSAT this September. One thing that caught my attention is that some schools like U of T frown upon less than full credit loads (less than 5 courses per term). The issue is that I took a lot of AP courses in high school which fulfilled a lot of my credit requirements. So, I was able to take less courses. 

    In first year, I took 5 courses, then 4 courses. In second year, I took 4 courses, then 4 courses, then did 6 credits abroad in the summer. My third year, I'm also doing 5 courses then 4 courses. 

    The problem is that after third year, I've pretty much met all my degree requirements and only need to take 21 more credits. (So, it would be 4 courses and 3) 

    Is this a huge problem for U of T and do I need to take more (unnecessary) courses just to take the full credit load for fourth year? 

     

    your GPA so far?

    As per the Ryerson Law website,

     

    Ryerson Law will use the best 2 years of undergraduate degree studies (full-time equivalent) to calculate the GPA used for admission consideration. e.g. 20 one-semester courses or 10 full-year courses.

    No schools can have 100% acceptance.  How many offers will Ryerson have to give to fill the 150 spots  Ottawa gave out 900+ offers to fill the 300+ spots. Will Ryerson have to give offers to sub 150 and sub 3.? L2 later in the cycle?

    I guess Ryerson has sent out more than 75 + offers if not 150 by now. The number of offers posted here may be less than 10% of the total offers out there...

    I am curious as well. People with low 150 scores are being accepted while by B2 of 3.9 and 157 is not accepted yet.  my ECs and interview was good too, so I don't know. 

    I guess we have wait a bit more to see a better picture. By the way, what is your cGPA?


  8. I am not sure how holistic Ryerson is... 

    The acceptance posted so far the lower ranges are around 151 LSAT and GPA of 3.2.

    Is it possible that Ryerson are looking at L2, B2 or best (20 ?) credits and LSAT above 150? 

    These stats are lower than the acceptance posted for Lake Head and Ottawa.  

    Comments? Thoughts?

    I have seen a lot of posts recently where people insinuate that this might be a problem, I had never heard of it until recently so maybe I misinterpreted!

    You have nothing to worry.... Do you live in Ottawa?

    Thanks guys, I am not going to cancel and just wait for my score. I'm confident I did well but not sure how well, just hoping for those extra points in my favour to get a 160. 

    my gpa is only 3.52 so I really need a higher LSAT to get accepted at Ottawa 

    not really. 157 and  3.52 should be ok

    also, is it an issue that during one of my semesters in 3rd year I only took 4 classes? I had taken 6 the semester before so I did it to even the credits out, I hope this isnt an issue?

    So?

    I wrote January today and I really don't know how to feel. the test was good but I was burnt out by the last section and so I don't know about that (whether experimental or not). I am predicting a score in the range of 155-160. However, I have a score of 157 already. Should I cancel my score in case I score lower like getting a 155 or take the risk of getting a 160? I am applying to Ottawa if it makes a difference but I just want to know if it would negatively affect my app by scoring lower ! if it doesn't make a difference I guess I will just keep it 

    what is your GPA?

    157 is good enough for Ottawa. Don't cancel.
