  1. Thanks for the help, everybody. I decided to fire off a quick application to Manitoba. My index score of 84 looks to be a good ways above their cutoff, so that's at least a fallback for me if none of the others pan out.
  2. When you say "broadly," what do you mean? Like, apply to as many schools as possible, or apply to some higher-ranked ones and some lower-ranked ones?
  3. 74.54% CGPA with drops, 91.31 index score. The predictor said "likely," but will I get disqualified because of the low GPA?
  4. It's both -- my best years were my 3rd and 4th. Thanks for the feedback! Queen's is my third or fourth choice at the moment, so I might drop it and look at something like Manitoba if I've got a better shot at getting in there. I've never even visited Winnipeg before, though.
  5. So I took the LSAT on a whim and did surprisingly well, and now law school seems like an actual possibility for me. The problem is I spent my three of my four years of undergrad not taking it seriously (I also had mental health issues, but so does everybody) and barely scraped a B/B+ average. I'm 26, finished undergrad in 2014, and I genuinely feel like I'm more mature and able to handle law school, which I definitely wasn't four years ago. I'm applying to Ottawa in the Mature category. I'm not sure if I should apply to the others in their comparable categories. I am a white guy without a lot of compelling life experience beyond having depression and ADHD, which seems to disqualify me from Queen's and UNB's Access/Discretionary categories, and I can't figure out if I should apply to Dal as special status or mature. Any help there would be massively appreciated. My CGPA with drops (just for UNB I believe) is somewhere in the 3.3 range, depending on how it's calculated. Anyway: what are my chances as a regular applicant vs. as one of the other categories? Can my LSAT make up for my GPA, especially considering it was years ago? Should I make a big deal out of how much older and wiser I am now in my personal statements? Am I shooting too high? Should I apply to other schools instead? Please help.
