  1. It's a bachelor's degree, a four-year undergrad from Humber College. It's recognized as a B.A.A.
  2. I am an Ontario Resident, and would ideally like to stay in Ontario, but am willing to consider other options within Canada as well. Was wondering where people thought I would have my best shot? I have a 156 LSAT. I have a 3.9 GPA (but it's from a college degree program - so Law School's weigh it as they see fit, not according to the OLSAS standards). I'm currently doing my Master's of Criminology (in which I was awarded a federal tri-agency scholarship - not sure if Law School's care about that) I am working as a Research Assistant for a lawyer now, which I will be using as a reference. I have a good amount of volunteer experience as well. I would love to get into UofT or York, but I'm assuming with my LSAT score it won't happen. Just looking for opinions on where best to spend my money applying! Thank you :)
  3. It's still a university degree - not meeting the Canadian law school requirements isn't one of my concerns.
  4. Hi there, I am looking for some advice. I applied to all of the Ontario Law School's last cycle - and got rejected from all of them (not all too surprisingly). I have a 3.9 GPA but it's from a University Degree taken at a college (Humber) and because of that OLSAS doesn't calculate it, so it's up to the schools individually I believe to decide how to view it. I figure though it doesn't end up being seen as a 3.9 (though I am unsure). And I had a 154 LSAT Score. I didn't really have anything else going for me - and my statements, and reference letters I am sure weren't anything special. So, I am now taking my Masters at Wilfrid Laurier in Criminology. I am re-taking the LSAT in November and I am currently practicing at a 160-65. I am doing my research at Laurier in Sports Law. I just got elected to the Appeal Committee at Laurier for all Graduate students. I am also participating in organizing and presenting in a conference. I am also a research assistant. What else do I do? Am I on the right track? I am making good connections with professors in hopes for good reference letters, I am expanding my very limited community involvement by participating in committee's and projects at Laurier. I know Master's marks aren't counted towards anything, but will the fact that I am at a university help at least? I will be applying not this cycle, but the cycle after (so for Sept 2020), so I have time to fix up my CV essentially. Please any help, or advice would be greatly appreciated!
  5. I have an 85% percent which converts to a 3.8-3.9 gpa depending on the school. I took the LSAT in September and got a 153. Which I was actually quite proud of because I barely studied. So, I studied harder, studied more and tried different strategies. I felt incredibly better after taking the December LSAT, but to my dismay I found out today I got a 153 again. I was practicing at a 160 before test day and felt as though I would walk away with a better score than in September. So, I just am not sure if it is worth taking in February again. I applied to every school in Ontario. Thanks in advance for your opinions (be as brutal as you must).
