  1. I'm wondering if I should keep my hopes up for U of A or if I should accept one of my Ontario law school offers. I did my undergraduate degree in Ontario at a percentage school so I am not exactly sure what my U of A calculated GPA is but my average is 83% and a CGPA 3.66/ L2 3.74 (how OLSAS calculated it). I took my LSAT twice and did 153/ 159 which averages it to 156. My personal statement talks about how I was diagnosed with a rare health condition which paralyzed me my senior year of high school and how I over came that and learned to walk again/ why that made me want to go into law. I have over 250 volunteers hours, half of which were done at a court house. I also was an executive for a club for two years and work for my universities students' union. I know it is hard to guess for holistic acceptances, but I wanted to know your opinions on if I stand a chance! Thank you!
  2. Accepted! LSAT 159, CGPA 3.66, General Will be declining for Western
  3. What happens during Western's Welcome Day? I haven't been able to find much information on what goes on during the day.
  4. Has anyone lived/ knows someone who lives in either Luxe or Masonville Yards? I am interested in either of these places however I wanted to get some feedback on how people find it. I also noticed their costs for either a one or two bedrooms isn't posted online so if anyone know the price range that would be great! Thanks!
  5. I can't believe I'm posting this.. I was accepted this morning! I wasn't sure if I would get into Western at all let alone in January. I applied general LSAT 159, CGPA 3.66, L2 is around 3.7-3.74 I haven't calculated it entirely due to not taking a full course load/ summer classes I personally believe I had a strong personal statement about overcoming a hardship, I have over 250 volunteer hours throughout the last three years of my Undergrad. I work for the Students Union and am President of a club.
  6. I just logged onto my uozone account to check my application status and the section that used to have my application under review isn't there anymore. The website mentions nothing about my application. Has this happened to anyone else/ how do I fix it? Thanks
  7. Does Ottawa send out acceptances at a certain time each day, or do they continually send them out throughout the day? If they do usually come out around a certain time does anyone know when it is?
  8. My OUzone account has been 'under evaluation' since I received my confirmation email September 27th.
  9. My OLSAS GPA was updated today and was lower than I was expecting at a 3.66 (I go to a percentage school and have a 83%) my last two is probably a bit higher. I took my LSAT twice and have a 159 as my highest score (153 the first time). I also have lots of volunteer experience with over 150 hours throughout my undergrad and was very involved working for my students’ union and being president of a club. I have already applied at Ottawa, Western, Queens and U of A. I am starting to second guess my chances, should I try apply at more schools that haven’t closed yet like U of C or Dal or am I over thinking it?
  10. Does anyone know how we can confirm our OLSAS calculated GPA? I go to a school which does not use a GPA system and wanted to confirm what it would be translated to before I get my hopes up. Thanks.
  11. Does anyone know how U of A calculates GPA? I go to a school which only uses percentages as grades and am a little confused about how to convert it to the scale U of A uses. Thank you!
  12. I am currently completing my 4th year of my undergraduate degree and have applied for the 2020 cycle. I applied for Western, Queens, Ottawa, and Alberta. Currently I am taking 4 course this semester and 4 courses next semester however I am struggling with one of the classes I am taking this semester and am worried it will bring down my average since I know most schools consider your fall semester grades. Would it help or hurt me if I dropped the class and took 3 classes this semester to keep my GPA high and then take 5 classes next semester (which would result in lower grades for my winter semester)? Essentially, how important are your winter semester grades since acceptances usually come out prior to these classes being completed.
  13. Do you have to wait until the application for the 2020 cycle opens to create an OLSAS account? I am trying to make an account and it is saying " this application is now closed" and wont let me make an account.
  14. Follow up question: I went to create an OLSAS account and after filling out the information to create an account it says " This application is now closed." Does this mean I can't create an account until the applications open tomorrow?
  15. When a professor submits a LOR do they just submit to lsac or do they have to submit to OLSAS if applying for an Ontario school?
