  1. I was doing some research on TRU and apparently the JD program is offered in collaboration with the University of Calgary. Is there still a connection between the two schools?
  2. My stats are L2" 3.4 LSAT 162. Anyone care to share theirs?
  3. Its probably going to be waitlist from here on out.
  4. Does anyone know if final round offers are over?
  5. I also spoke to Leanne. We will definitely hear back by end of April-adcom is busy with exam season apparently. I hope this doesn't put us at a disadvantage. I applied mid-January.
  6. I spoke with Leanne, and she did mention index scores and commented on mine. It seems like she calculates the index and then sends it out to reviewers. While it may be a holistic school, they still have some measurement. Im interested in knowing how much weight is allocated to the LSAT vs the GPA, and how the index is seen relative to the softs.
  7. Does anyone have an idea about how TRU calculates its index scores? Is TRU a GPA or an LSAT heavy school?
  8. Got Waitlisted this afternoon. L2: 3.2 LSAT: 162
  9. It will probably be competitive from the get-go. There are enough applicants clamoring to go to law school in the GTA. We need a law school at like Lethbridge or Memorial in Newfoundland.
  10. IE- If you apply discretionary but they decide not to qualify you as "special" enough. Or if you fumble your discretionary statement? Or even if by the time they read your statement towards the end, the class already filled up.

  12. In the most recent data, there were only 8 holistic admits. Is this to say in an incoming class of 183, only 4% of the incoming class had their softs considered? Find that a bit intense. My contact told me 25 PERCENT of UofA admits come through the Holistic Review process. Could there possible be a holistic component to second round which they included? They were an admissions officer at a Canadian law school so I doubt they would make those statements uninformed.
  13. Called admissions and now applications are focusing on holistic review. I was told by someone in admissions at another school that 25% of UofA's acceptances are through holistic. Can anyone verify this? My numbers are 3.3/162
  14. Seems incredibly biased towards K-JDs- who often have 4 or 5 years of full time courses to pick from. Those of us who couldn't afford to do that have to swallow the cGPA.
  15. I am based in Alberta but help out with my family business that is heavily invested in Saskatchewan. Would that be considered a connection?
  16. My undergraduate record is a bit spotty- I did one semester one and one off. Also I did part time studies- two or three courses here and there, a bunch of spring and summer classes. How would Sask calculate those? Do they just look at the best 20 credits overall? Best full semesters?
  17. I absolutely bombed by first two years of university-I had a 1.6 GPA. However, I did a lot better in my final two years with close to a 3.4. My Olsas calculates my total at a 2.6. However, I also have an LSAT of 162 and really strong ECs and special factors that affected my first two years. Do I still have a shot at Windsor?
  18. Is there a way to quantify the value of a good reference letter, strong work experience, leadership awards etc.? Does Special Facts work in a similar way? I've heard certain factors give you "points" in an index score. Is this the case, and if so, what degree do they "Bump" you up? Does anyone have anecdotal experience on this?
  19. I am a Legal Assistant and did a two year diploma in Legal Assistant at a local polytechnic. I had a 3.8 GPA over 20 half courses and I also have two years work experience in a Law Firm. If I do well on the LSAT do I have a chance of applying straight from my current position or will I have to go back to finish undergrad?
