    Access Category, Stats

    Dear capitalttruth, Do not be discouraged, and please be optimistic. I have not heard back anything yet, either. I know that you were waitlisted at Ottawa law last year with a lower LSAT score than your current one. I am quite sure that you will ultimately get in at least one Canadain law school, hopefully, Ottawa law. Best of luck with you this year!

    The Impact of a 20-year-old Transcript

    Dear keithdavis, I just would like to express my sincere congratulations on your acceptance at Osgoode. I can certainly see how your tremendous efforts, passion, and perseverance illuminate your great outcomes. Best of luck for your future studies. I believe that you will do very well in your law school.

    Access Students 2019

    Hello, capitalttruth, I have applied to all law schools in Ontario; Lakehead, Ottawa, Queens, and Western under Access category; Toronto under Mature category; Osgoode and Windsor under General category. My stats are cGAP 3.78 (OLSAS scale), L2 3.84 (OLSAS scale), B3 3.78 (OLSAS scale), 157 LSAT (70% score and an accommodated score due to mental issues), and an MA in history; I am also currently doing a combined degree program of Master of Information (Archival studies) and Master of Museum Studies. As you may see, my access claim just pertains to mental issues and an accommodated LSAT score as a consequence of the mental issues. I have not heard back anything yet. Based on the fact that you were waitlisted at Ottawa Law last year, if your LSAT score improved compared to that of last year, I am quite sure that you will be accepted to most schools that you have applied. So, stay positive and wish you best of luck!

    Mature Applicants Accepted/ Rejected 2018/2019

    Dear keithdavis, Thank you so much for your encouragement and suggestions. I really appreciate it. I do not want to derail the purpose of creating this thread. So, if I hear back anything later, I will post here although U of T, Osgoode, and Windsor pertain to my applications under Mature Category. (I have applied to Lakehead, Ottawa, Western, and Queen's under Access Category.) Thank you and best of luck!

    Mature Applicants Accepted/ Rejected 2018/2019

    Dear keithdavis, First of all, my sincere congratulations on your acceptance at Western. I am really impressed by your passion and perseverance, which your stories clearly resonate; I am really sorry to hear that you have recently been separated with your son as I also have a three-year-old son. I am quite old as you although I am a little younger than you. (I know your age since I saw your previous posts.) I personally believe that you will be accepted at every law school that you have applied, including U of T Law; your stats are very strong, given your status as the Mature applicant. I do not think that your 15-year-experiences of working in restaurants are insignificant. Rather, your experiences of interacting with diverse people may set your applications apart from those of other excellent candidates and impress the admission committees of both Osgoode and U of T. So, good luck! For your information, My files are: CGPA: 3.78 (OLSAS scale), B3: 3.78 (OLSAS scale), and L2: 3.84 (OLSAS scale). Like you, I also graduated from York University. LSAT: 157 (2018 September), 70 % (This is an accommodated LSAT score due to my medical issue. ) I will also take the 2019 January LSAT with accommodations, but I am highly sceptical if I would be able to increase my score for the 2019 January LSAT because of the workload of my current graduate program. I have already completed an MA in History (A- average). I obtained my MA from York as well. In addition, I am currently doing the Combined degrees of Master of Information (Archival Studies) and Master of Museum Studies. (My current average grades are between B+ and A-, but certainly closer to A-.) Volunteer and extracurricular activities include political actions concerning Marxism, president of the student union, work experiences, and mandatory military service (I am an immigrant). I also have received quite many scholarships and awards from both my undergraduate and graduate programs. As I am a very social justice-oriented person, my personal statements mostly concern labour and indigenous rights. I am eligible for both Mature and Access Category of Ontario Law Schools. However, I have mostly applied to Ontario Law Schools under Access Category. I have applied to all law schools in Ontario, but I have not heard back anything yet. Personally, I think that I may not be accepted to any law school in Ontario although I have applied under Access Category. I do know that competitions for law schools have increasingly intensified. Long story short, best of luck!!

    Mature student chances? cGPA: 3.1 B2: 3.43

    I respect your feedback, but given that the OP is applying to Ontario Law Schools under Mature/Access Category, may the OP have quite good chances at Queens, Western, or Ottawa? The OP has a good LSAT score, and OP's L2/B2 is not too bad if we consider the OP's mature or access status.

    Your thoughts on my analysis of chances [3.78, 3.84, 157 + MA]

    Than you very much for your detailed explanations!

    Your thoughts on my analysis of chances [3.78, 3.84, 157 + MA]

    Dear Luckycharm, Thank you very much for your reply. May I respectfully ask you why you think that my chance at Ottawa is good? I know that Ottawa Law's admission is a kind of black box and, in this sense, the admission is very selective given that I am under Acess Category. Thank you again for your comment.

    Dear yeezy, Thank you very much for your comment. In fact, your response is more generous than I have expected. I appreciate it.
  11. A long time lurker and this is my first post on this forum. I would like to respectfully ask for your thoughts on my own analysis of admission chances. I'd appreciate any feedback or comment. My files are: CGPA: 3.78 (OLSAS scale), B3: 3.78 (OLSAS scale), and L2: 3.84 (OLSAS scale). LSAT: 157 (2018 September), 70 % (This is accommodated LSAT score due to my medical issue. ) I will also take the 2019 January LSAT with accommodations, but I am highly sceptical if I would be able to increase my score for the 2019 January LSAT because of the workload of my current graduate program. I have already completed an MA in History (A- average). In addition, I am currently doing the Combined degrees of Master of Information (Archival Studies) and Master of Museum Studies. (My current average grades are between B+ and A-, but certainly closer to A-.) Volunteer and extracurricular activities include political actions concerning Marxism, president of the student union, work experiences, and mandatory military service (I am an immigrant). I have also received quite many scholarships and awards from both my undergraduate and graduate programs. As I am a very social justice-oriented person, my personal statements mostly concern labour and indigenous rights. I am eligible for both Mature and Access Category of Ontario Law Schools. However, I have mostly applied to Ontario Law Schools under Access Category. I have applied to all law schools in Ontario, but I have currently no idea of how admission committees will evaluate my files under Access Category, particularly my accommodated LSAT score. So, I'd appreciate if you would be able to give me any feedback or comment on my own analysis of chances. (I have not used Ryn's calculation for my own analysis although I highly recognize Ryn's methods.) The below numerical rankings pertain to my preference for law schools in Ontario. 1. U of T (Under Mature Category): 100 % rejected. 2. Osgoode: 80% rejected. 3. Western (Under Access Category): 50% accepted or 50% rejected probably? 4. Queens (Under Access Category): 50% accepted or 50% rejected probably? 5. Ottawa (Under Access Category): likely accepted? 6. Windsor: likely accepted? 7. Lakehead (Under Access Category): likely accepted? Thank you very much again for your considerations in advance.
