  1. I don't really know about the particulars of your situation but with those numbers I'd be surprised if you didn't get in.
  2. LSAT is an enormous pain and it's very difficult to get 165+. Personally I would put aside the time (I did, and got in, after going from 155 to 170). What is a 3.9/4.3 on the 4.0 scale?
  3. 1. Yes 2. For the schools you listed, aim as high as possible. 165+ with a 2.8. It also matters significantly what your best 2 and last 2 years' average GPA are, because those are the calculations used for Queens and Western respectively. So if you have a 2.8 cGPA but a 3.5 B2 (best 2) then you might have a pretty decent shot. That being said, you will have to ace the LSAT regardless. 3. I have no idea about this. Access is, I wouldn't say, easier, but rather more forgiving or understanding on the basis of some kind of ailment or disability you have. However ADHD and depression might not fit the typical Access profile. Moreover, while it is very unfortunate that you had depression and I hope you are doing better, I don't think the best advertisement to a law school is to tell them that you were depressed for four years. It just doesn't inspire confidence. Honestly there's a debate to be had over that but personally I wouldn't do it.
  4. Ottawa very good shot. Western and Queens both good shots as well but less certain. Good job on that GPA.
  5. Yes. There is a 'tryout' process, or at least there was (new) last year, but it is very easy. We had to read a journal article, answer some questions about it, and perform some citations work pursuant to the McGill Guide (legal citation guide) within a couple of days. It actually takes longer than you might think, but not long. Around 45 people made it on to law review, they wouldn't tell us how many 'tried out'.
  6. Very shortly before school starts. Not before the Legal Methods intensive during orientation.
  7. No one knows anything about Ryerson Law. In any event I can pretty much guarantee you'll be fine. If you are worried call them and ask.
  8. L2 is your most recent 2 years of school. So that would be the 3.69 from York. If they were to look at your cumulative GPA they would see the 2.78.
  9. No, grades are not equal across law schools. PM me if you want to know more, otherwise I'll try to explain myself publicly and everyone will have a conniption because it's taboo around here to say anything other than "all schools are great."
  10. UofT will not look at summer courses under any circumstances. Osgoode will.
  11. UBC Sauder is extremely difficult from what I've heard, it is very difficult to attain a high GPA there compared to other business schools. I would avoid it if law school is the endgame.
  12. Law school is really hard. Really really hard. If you didn't like school during your initial BA or your "renaissance", then it is highly unlikely you will enjoy it now.
