  1. Rejected just now. 3.2 GPA and 153 one write LSAT. Access Category. BA, B.Ed, M.Ed Decent amount of extra curriculars and volunteering Disappointed but not shocked
  2. Reply with a thank you for the admission offer 😂
  3. omg my heart was beating so fast when i saw this! i got so excited and checked everything. still under evaluation
  4. I self calculated (which I think/hope is correct) that my CGPA with drops is 3.53ish, LSAT one write is 153.
  5. Self calculated my CGPA with drops to be between 3.52 - 3.6 Discretionary category LSAT one write at 153 I'm a grad student without an Atlantic connection. Would I even be waitlisted?
  6. Congrats!!! Did you find out through email or through updated status on the site?
  7. I was unfortunately only still hitting high 150s on practice tests. I think i might begin studying early again just in case im reapplying next cycle
  8. I've worked with yoni as well and he is pretty patient and helpful!
  9. Someone in another thread posted this: I received an email from Wanda this morning confirming that they are now setup to process our credit card (deposit) payments remotely. Hopefully this means more movement will be happening. I had honestly given up on religiously checking my email, thinking acceptances wouldn't be going out until May, but to my surprise I was accepted last week. Fingers crossed for everyone still waiting! Maybe there is some movement now?
  10. I believe I was once told on the phone that they were? I might be mistaking UNB for Manitoba or another school. Does anyone know the answer to this? Thank you!
  11. Hey! That is very helpful thanks so much! Looks like this is quite the unique year.
  12. Oops! My stats were 3.2 cGPA prior to drops (not sure what it was after drops) and 153. I was in the discretionary category as well. Not surprised as I dropped the ball on the actual LSAT compared to practice tests. Will likely re write and apply again.
  13. Totally pumped to announce my.... rejection 😭 I was rejected last night. Applied discretionary
  14. Are any other discretionary applicants still waiting for a response? I haven't been waitlisted at all. Does anyone know if they are still reviewing discretionary applications and if there's still hope?
  15. I applied to almost every school in Ontario and am planning on applying outside of Ontario as well. My CGPA in my undergrad is a 3.3 on a 4.3 scale which is low due to the fact that I was not diagnosed/medicated for a health issue until my third year. After treatment, my fourth year GPA is a 3.65, I finished a B.Ed and have begun a Masters related to education policy (I want to go into education law). I completed my Masters coursework with a 3.78 GPA. There is a strong obvious upward trend. My L2 is a 3.75ish I finished second year with a 3.4 as well which wasn't terrible but I have enough C's and B's from first and third year when I was especially unwell. Those two years totally drag down my CGPA. Queen's however, won't look at my last year because it's half a credit short of their unit requirement so I'd be applying with a B2 of a little over 3.5 in access category. I have not written the LSAT yet, but am booked for November and January. My last PT was around 157 so I'm hoping I'll break 160 by January. I have done several extra curriculars related to equity/youth justice over the years, I volunteered in a law firm (this was my reference letter), I TA etc. I'm also hoping its taken into consideration I've done a professional degree and am on a graduate degree. What do you guys think? Any advice in the process?
  16. I am currently a student at Queen's applying in the access category this Fall. In my second best year I have 24.0 units total out of 30.0 of BA courses and one B.Ed course worth 3.0 units (which Queen's once told me they might separate from my BA degree so it may not count for that year). I have taken 4 out of 5 half courses each semester (12.0 units per semester) so I'm one course short for the that year. Will this be calculated as a full load? I was not a part time student, but it was not 5/5 courses per semester. As well, my B2 average is 3.52. Is this competitive for access category? Thanks!
  17. I know Ryerson is now accepting applications in the fall. Has anyone asked the school how they look at a full course load? Two of my best years I took 27/30 units in one year (one half course under) and one year I did not underload, but my program's full load for that year was 22.5 or 24 units. Does anyone know how much they care about being under the "full load" Thanks!
  18. Has anyone asked the law department at Ryerson if they will disqualify a year for not having a full 5/5 courses/ 30 units exactly as a full course load?
  19. Hi everyone! I'm looking for some advice for applying in the access category. After I converted my grades to a 4.0 scale my CGPA went from 3.3 to 3.12. I suffered from illnesses in undergrad that went unmedicated for 3 years of my 5 year degree and the difference between my fourth and fifth years as well as my masters compared to first to third year is stark. My Best 2 average for Queen's is a 3.52 and my L2 for other schools like Western or Dal is around a 3.7-3.8. This is because my final year didn't hit the exact number of credits Queen's wanted because my courses were worth weird amounts. I was looking for advice on what LSAT score do I need to make up for this? As well, what schools would really take my health claim into consideration/better schools to apply to for my situation? I have also done quite a few extra curriculars, i volunteer for two law firms, I'm also a certified teacher and have a masters degree. Would any of this help my health claim and what schools would best suit me given your experiences applying? If you have other suggestions as to where I could post this, that would be great. Thanks!

  22. So my best 3 years GPA is around a 3.67 which I know is a bit lower than the 3.8 the median GPA is. I also had an upward trend. Around what LSAT score would I need to make up for this? Or what kinds of work/volunteer experiences might I search for? Additional info: I struggled with my health during undergrad and would be able to supply medical notes. Does U of T take this into account? Some other schools have access category. As well, I do know the school considers your course load as well. My final year had 22.5 units in it rather than 30. I took a full load, it was just how my program was set up. How would U of T view this?
  23. Hi! I was wondering if Windsor only looks at CGPA or if L2 years is taken into consideration as well? Thanks!

    low cgpa

    What are the chances of getting in with a lower CGPA like 3.1-3.3 if the average of your L2 is above 3.7?
