  1. Thanks, I think I am leaning towards Beltline, found a nice place!
  2. Rogers for their exceptional customer service and low wait times!
  3. Can someone please comment on the differences between living in Kensington and living in Mission. I was told those are two great areas to live for law students. I also will have my own vehicle so transit is not an issue. Just want a lively place that's a good area for students. Any comments and tips on the differences between Mission and Kensington would be greatly appreciated! Specific apartment buildings too!

  5. Chances? Cgpa 3.03 L2:3.81 Lsat: 162

  7. No he doesn't, go to Australia, not everyone here has to aim to become a Bay Street Lawyer, I am sure he has the moral integrity to represent people and study law more effectively. Why does everyone crush everyone's dreams on these forums, I really don't get it. You can say you're being realistic and just looking out for this guy, but from the message the guy really had his hopes set on Law and like sure not everyone who hopes, gets everything they want in life. But he doesn't have to choose another field. You can go to Australia, take a year to convert your Australian law degree to Canadian and that's that. I know of a couple of people who took that route. It is much more expensive. But I'm sure you will make a great lawyer if you dedicate yourself to improving upon your studies, which I believe you intend do. Past performance is not indicative of future success, no matter what all these regular guys continuously post. Shout out you know who you are. Although, you will have to study a lot for the LSAT and gain a much better score. Gonna take a lot of work, but doesn't mean you have to give up on your dream.
  8. I should have included a laughing face my comment was not at all hostile more like a fun add-on, like someone yelling "AYOOOOO" and yea definitely glad I didn't have to do that.
  9. I had a 2.84 cgpa. 3.73 L2. I have been accepted to one school so far and yet to be rejected, so definitely possible if you get the grades you need over 5th year. If that's not good enough try and see if your program has an honours program, which you might qualify for, then you could potentially extend your undergrad to add on a specialization for your degree so that you can improve upon your gpa. That's what I did. Enrolled into the honours program so I could actually take an extra year that would count towards gpa, rather than a separate masters which generally means much less as a component for schools.
  10. I had a 2.84 gpa, I returned to university and took a full course load + an extra 0.5 credit. When I applied with a 2.84 I got rejected from every school I applied to. But now after maintaining a 3.9 for this year. I got into Calgary Law and have yet to receive any rejections because they are waiting for my current second semester grades. So just because you take an extra year and start in 2018 September, you can still apply and wait and see if you will get in after your grades are submitted by professors in May. There may be a smaller chance of acceptance because of rolling admissions but that doesn't mean that you have to waste a year. I didn't get in and decided to go back to university for a year. Not ideal. But you have to do what it takes, because there are people on these forums who did not mess up their first years of schools and that's the nature of life. it is competitive. I would say your only option is to go back and improve on your GPA if that option is available to you.
  11. hilarious you posted an additional two times, that had to be on purpose, lol! noice!
  12. everyone posting. please include L2 over CGPA if you are going to include only one. L2 is a greater indicator for Queens than one's CGPA.
  13. it factors in if you calculate your L2, which is the main indicator they take into consideration when looking at GPA. I was deferred last year, then added to the waitlist. Then eventually rejected. So not sure how this answers your question, but the waitlist really made little difference since it all depends on other people's movement and there was none last year, so don't get too excited if you are added to a waitlist. Also I wouldn't describe this 3.25, 3.4, 3.74, then 3.56, as a "strong upward trend." It's a significant improvement but don't let that blind you, kill your exams coming up to show them that your final term will improve on your 3.56
  14. Anyone want to make a list for University of Calgary?
  15. second paragraph of the letter, it says you need to send a transcript request for winter semester
  16. they also just sent the letter in Western Student Centre: Thank you for your application to Western Law, which we have reviewed. I am writing to let you know that a decision on your application has been deferred until we receive a final transcript of your current academic studies. If you have not already done so, please arrange to have a copy of your final transcript sent directly to OLSAS using the methods indicated in the Transcripts section of the OLSAS application guide. When we receive your transcript, we will reassess your application and notify you of the Admission Committee's final decision. One of three outcomes is possible: (1) we may offer you admission to the class of 2021; (2) the class may be filled and we may offer you a position on the wait list; or (3) we may not be in a position to make you an offer. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at 519-661-3356 or email [email protected] Very truly yours, Danielle C. Lacasse, BA, B.Ed, LLB, LLM. Assistant Dean (Admissions and Recruitment)
  17. western is an L2 school, so posting a cgpa does not indicate much, share L2 if you want a better picture of your chances. Got the email too. Cgpa:2.84 L2:3.73 Lsat 162.
  18. Wonderful. You're a wizard, Harry!
