  1. Any people accepted from deferred decision category?
  2. For the love of God, please do not go to SFU. There are so many disadvantages that I can name in terms of getting into law or other grad schools. Long story short, your GPA will get absolutely fucked. I won't get into it here but you can message me if you would like. I am in Beedie right now and if I wasn't so far along then I would without a doubt transfer elsewhere.
  3. I would assume they'd take your fifth year, fourth year, and third year.
  4. Western actually told me they have discretion on whether or not they will count the extra semester to make it more than 20. The woman I spoke with told me that in my case, they would likely not count the extra semester since I am close to 20 and that last semester would have a severe impact on my L2 GPA. If I had 18 courses then they would likely use an extra semester. Conversely, Calgary for sure will count the extra semester to reach 20 courses.
  5. Hey! When I messaged the advisors, they said they count summer courses in your L2. I'll give you an example of what they said would be counted in my L2 for clarification: Spring 2018: 3 courses Summer 2018: 2 courses Fall 2018: 4 courses Spring 2019: 4 courses Summer 2019: 2 courses Fall 2019: 4 courses So because I don't fall under the typical 5 course/semester student, they would count 6 semesters in total for my calculation. If, for example, I took 1 summer course instead of 2, or 3 courses in fall 2019 instead of 4, they told me that they would likely include fall 2017 in my L2 calculation as well.
  6. Calgary counts back 20 courses and if your 20th course lands in a 4-course semester, then they will count that whole semester. So that means they can count up to around ~24 courses in your L2. Western will also do something similar to this except they don't count back courses, they count back semesters. They told me that if I took 4 courses/semester they'd likely calculate back one more semester. Queen's does B2 GPA by "years," i.e., first year, second year, third year, or fourth year (if you're accepted after these grades become available). So they don't split up semesters in their calculation. Also, Queen's counts 4-course semesters as full-time fyi. These schools I'm 99% sure on so I hope this helps a bit!
  7. I know that you can go back and take courses after you've graduated and Calgary specifically will take these into account, but not many other schools will. I'd look into this as if you improved your L2 and maybe had another go around at the LSAT you'd stand a chance. My friend took the LSAT 6 times and, while that's not desirable, she was dedicated to getting into law school, and ended up at UBC. edit: i think this is called open studies or unclassified courses or something?
