  1. Got accepted on February 23rd! cGPA: 3.5 L2: 3.7s LSAT: 155 Currently in undergrad, full course load. PS heavily geared towards international law. Lots of ECs and internships. After countless all nighters, days on end in the library, and destroying my physical and mental health, it was truly rewarding to finally see it all be worth it. Beyond ecstatic!
  2. Got the email just now. cGPA: 3.5 LSAT: 155 As a current fourth year at UofT, I'm honestly very ecstatic to be approaching my final days in this extremely unpleasant, money-hungry, apathetic institution. Good luck to everyone else and see ya never UofT. 😎
  3. Wow, that's so unprofessional.
  4. Yes, absolutely. You'd think at least ONE person on their entire communications team would say, "hey, maybe this isn't the best move after all and we're pissing off the applicants who are waiting to hear back." Also, isn't it weird and kinda illogical to get invited to an open house without being accepted yet?
  5. Don't cancel, it doesn't really make any sense unless you know for a fact that you bombed it.
  6. Hey buddy, same exact boat here. Applied to all Ontario schools + UBC except Lakehead. 3.49 cGPA and I assume a B2 somewhere in the 3.7s. I have a way worse LSAT than you (155) though I did write again in January so I'm banking on that. You definitely have a shot at Ottawa, Western, Queen's, and Windsor so don't panic. Since I'm feeling the same exact angst as you, my advice would be to minimize your visits to this forum (since it only makes you compare yourself to others and feel bad) and stop checking your student portals daily (if you do that like me) since schools will send us an email once any change has been made. We got this...(I think).
  7. Really? Is it actually still "very" early? I thought this was like mid-way.
  8. Yea, based on my own personal journey, I would also advise against rushing the LSAT IF you don't care about taking an extra year. I grew up never even knowing "gap years" were a thing, let alone the relative norm when it comes to a first year class at law school where the majority of students have taken 1+ years off since their undergraduate degree. This pushed me to rush the LSAT, taking it last summer, where I was going into my fourth year, even though I wasn't ready. When I didn't get the results I wanted, I applied to schools nonetheless because I didn't want to take a year off since it just "wasn't a thing" in my family. In retrospect, that was pretty stupid since I took the LSAT a second time while I still wasn't ready for it but by that time, I had already sent in my applications and couldn't just stand to waste some $800+ application fees plus the thought of not giving it one more chance. Even though, I definitely didn't help myself by putting 2 mediocre LSAT scores on my record. TLDR: if you don't care about taking an extra year, definitely do it.
  9. I'm pretty sure that as long as you withdraw 24 hours before test day, nothing will show up on your application.
  10. I'm pretty sure UofT doesn't care about 4th year grades if you're currently in 4th year. Same with UBC. You're good.
  11. Don't risk it. Just order a cab and schedule one to pick you up after the test. During my test back in summer, this one guy had to offer another person to leave his phone in his car because the LSAC people told him to just stash it somewhere outside since there was no way he could bring it in.
  12. Ottawa adcom (and all other schools that state they only look at the highest score) will wait until they receive your Jan score to make a judgment, so don't worry about that. I'm in the same boat as you. Wrote in July, got a 155, and my PTs since have been stuck in the same range. I'm signed up for the test next week and in Jan as well. I figured I might as well sit in on the next week and cancel my score afterwards if I don't feel like I did well. No point in cancelling beforehand since we would just lose all our money.
  13. I should've mentioned that I already took the LSAT in the summer and it didn't go well. I'll add that to the post now. But yea, one of the main reasons I'm asking this is that I doubt I'm going to do that well on the LSAT next week, or in Jan for that matter, so I'm really hoping that my GPA can save my ass. I'm really in a glass case of emotion right now
