    Accepted this morning with 4 hours to spare before my partner has to choose their preferred work locations for next year. Very grateful to have heard "just in time" . No e-mail yet, so I'm glad I checked the admissions portal!

    LSAT 163, B2 4.04

    -GM

    Congrats GM!

    Really happy for you!

    Hey guys,

    I have a cGPA: 3.81, L2: 3.83, LSAT: 158 --> 153 --> 159.

    What are my chances for Osgoode, Queens, and Western?

    You have a good shot for all 3.

    And you are 100% in Ottawa. Did you apply there?

    There are people that are admitted without ever going into queue, and there are people that go into queue early and never admitted. Relying on this to predict admissions is not a good idea.

    No conflict with my point.

    My point is that the earlier you are in queue the earlier you MAY get an offer (if there is one).

    Look, if you're not going to believe what Ryn has posted, and he has been a student rep on the admissions committee in the past, then I don't know what to tell you.

    I was put in queue on December 16 

    3.85 cGPA / 3.96 L2 and 155 LSAT (not a competitive lsat) and have yet to hear back so I’m assuming queue doesn’t mean much! 

    Example:

    @gb16 Posted December 5, 2019
    Just got the email acceptance!

    cGPA: 3.99 according to OLSAS

    LSAT: 164 (October 2019) 

    I submitted my application Oct 29 went into "the queue for review" on Dec 2. 

    If gb16 is in queue in March he / she wouldn't get admitted in December, right? 

    As I mentioned above, for people with non competitive stats the time getting in queue may not mean much I guess.

    My stats aren't close to competitive and I have been in queue since January 13 

    People with competitive stats usually get into queue in December thus they get offers earlier I think.

    For people with non competitive stats the time getting in queue may not mean much I guess.


  6. Osgoode:

    "Our approach to reading close to 3,000 applications begins with the applicant’s cumulative GPA and LSAT score."

    Does this mean the applicants with better stats would get into queue earlier thus they would be admitted earlier as well?

    cGPA: 2.61 (expected to go up a bit at the end of the year)

    L2: 3.78 (expected)

    LSAT: 163 (first write)

     

    Applied through Access category

     

    Applied everywhere in Ontario except Lakehead

    What are your current cGPA and L2?

    The schools may not take your winter term grades.

    @NeverGiveUp Thanks for the input, I was told that the most recent index formula used was (21xGPA + LSAT) where 240 gives you an admittance. If what was said about the LSAT having a higher weight this year is true, then even this index formula has been changed as well. 

    They have a brand new index formula? That's good to know.

    I only know they either used GPA x 22.5 + Average LSAT or GPA x 22 + Average LSAT.

    With 21 x GPA + Average LSAT you are still good.

    @RGoodfellow I guess they're doing things a little different this year. My last 60 is 3.92 and 159 LSAT. Still haven't heard anything back yet. Someone I know said the index formula being used this year puts a higher weight on the LSAT. Looks like they might be right. 

    Even so you still have a high index: 3.92 x 22 + 159 = 245.24 > 240.

    You will get an offer soon.

    Pretty much all of the maritimes become a frozen hellscape all winter. ;) Although it's warmer than the prairies, it's cold enough for the moisture in the air (which is always there) to fall as snow, and you're less likely to have the constant thaws that melt what little snow does fall in the GTA.

    Fredericton is a little different because it's higher, sheltered, and nowhere near the ocean (the interior of NB isn't really 'Maritime' in that sense). Alright; I've definitely derailed this thread enough. Sorry, @Octopolis!

    Thanks GM!

    My bad for going off the topic.

    Good luck to your application to UofS.

    I definitely agree with this. I've lived in Nova Scotia/New Brunswick, and the snowfall in Saskatchewan doesn't come close to what they get out there.

    Really? That's good to know.

    I thought Halifax and Fredericton are similar to or even warmer than Toronto during winter time.

    Thanks!
