  1. for context, I am sitting just below you guys, high 74s. Manitoba is my first choice so I'm willing to take my chances. I think.
  2. I have been going back in the forums like you wouldn’t believe, we should be fine. Especially seeing the ‘already accepted’ this year, it doesn’t seem like it’s higher than last year. And last year went into the 72s, just last minute.
  3. Robson Hall (Manitoba) has a request for grade elimination! Its in the applicant bulletin, there are two options. One is grades older than 5 years, and the other (generally speaking) is a certain amount of credits within a certain period of time after starting a new program.
  4. Yep if you look at past accepted.... almost always go into 73s, 72s. Just ends up being last minute.
  5. You’re the best. Thanks for asking. Fingers crossed for all of us.
  6. Does anyone know what last years was?
  7. This is going to be completely unhelpful. If I was looking at your application, you’d be a shoe in for an interview. i also applied IC and your application makes me nervous as competition Generally speaking, it’s my understanding that broadly they are looking for applicants that can handle the workload, keep up academically, and have a passion to contribute. It’s very subjective who gets in, as a variety of lawyers, profs, and judges around the city review a pile that they have been provided with, so it really depends whose desk your application lands on, and what they feel would make a valuable lawyer. I’m going to keep on going into my negative nelly hole and say PLUS this is the first hurdle for us, then we have to clear the interview!! You’ve improved your grades, life experience is invaluable, leadership positions, and a great LSAT. Providing you took progressively harder courses, dealt a lot with the public...you look like a great candidate. my fingers are crossed for both of us!
  8. Thanks, you too! Tough decision to make...totally get the exhaustion over putting together a massive application package. Good luck
  9. HELLO out there, just checking in on who has applied IC for 2020 admissions?? Me. Tell me your stats and your stories! I would love to know who/what I am up against but also get to know potential classmates.
  10. hi! do you know...under the request for elimination on the applicant bulletin, do the (for us over 26s) 30 credits have to be completed prior to the request deadline of December 1st, or will they include our Fall Semester grades? It would make sense if yes, because those grades are included in the GPA calculation for index score applicants. Or, if not, is there leeway? I have 27 completed in a new program, my previous 50 credits are from 10 + years ago and most of these I'd like disregarded. I will have an additional 12 completed in fall semester, and assuming I will maintain my current excellent GPA. Edit to add: getting these removed would make me v competitive as an index score applicant, I have a great LSAT. Otherwise I will have to take my chances under individual consideration and I feel that is an application process I can't really control.
  11. she had a ton of different things, literally none related to law. she was in her 30s, and just had a badass answer for why she wanted to become a lawyer (single mother, show her son anything is possible, etc etc). Her work experience included being a pastry chef, working for Boeing, ran a daycare at some point. I think they took her because she brought a very unique point of view, and passionately wanted to get into family law to help those through the hell she had to go through (among other things, but that's what she said she thought sealed the deal). Going in through IC means you need to have some sort of story or good reason as to why they should accept you, from what I hear! She also had strong recommendation letters from some professors and professionals she knew through her previous job experience.
  12. I will be applying this Sept as IC as well! I am nervous, but I think will get in...early good luck to you! So this isn't me, but a friend. She got in IC with just the minimum amount of required credits (30?) with decent grades and LSAT. This was 4 years ago, I was super impressed!
