  1. I applied to Western and Windsor. I got into Windsor in January, and Western in June off the waitlist. My best LSAT was 157 though, so if you pull off a 163-165 I imagine you’ll have a good shot. Try and keep up your grades (or improve them) in third year! My CGPA was 3.8 and L2 3.85 (including 3rd year). I don’t think Windsor accepts the January LSAT, so that may affect your chances there. For other schools, I would imagine 3rd year applicants are accepted later in the cycle anyways so it wouldn’t matter too much. I’ve heard of 3rd year applicants getting into Queens and Osgoode, so maybe try applying to those schools!
  2. I applied to two Ontario law schools in my third year with a slightly higher GPA but a lower LSAT score. I got into both schools I applied to, and if anything, I regret not applying to more schools. At the time, I didn’t really think I’d stand a chance as a third year applicant and didn’t want to waste the money. Most schools require you to have 3 years of full time undergrad studies before starting law school. If you’re already writing PTs in the mid 160s, think about writing the LSAT sooner. With those stats, and a good personal statement, I think you’d have a good shot at most schools in Ontario, except U of T. And if you’re really worried about finances, U of T might not be the best option for you anyways. Best of luck.
  3. Accepted off the waitlist today GPA: 3.79 L2: 3.85 LSAT: 157 Good ECs and References. Will be accepting.
  4. Accepted off the waitlist today GPA: 3.79 L2: 3.85 LSAT: 157 Good ECs and References. Will be accepting. Literally SO HAPPY I cried!
  5. Do you know when we will get our schedules?
  6. Waitlisted today. GPA 3.76. L2 3.85. LSAT 157. Great references and ECs. Currently working for an Assistant Deputy Minister at the Department of Justice. Extremely disappointed.
  7. So you called in just now? I will be disappointed if I don’t hear today... they’ve been saying May 31st for a while... I’m probably going to call in later this afternoon if I don’t hear anything.
  8. Did you end up hearing anything? I’m probably going to call in today.
  9. I paid Monday evening and my account was updated this afternoon.
  10. I guess I’ll probably be getting a rejection soon. I had a really good semester and my L2 went up to 3.86 with a GPA of 3.79. I didn’t even get a deferred decision so I won’t know if they reviewed those grades. My LSAT score will be the death of me (157).
  11. Anyone know if there will be a final round of offers this week and which day that might be? The admissions blog says one last round will come out the end of May.
  12. Is there anyone else who is still waiting? I haven't heard anything. I've provisionally accepted an offer from another school, which means I'll have to pay my $500 deposit next week. Trying to decide how long I should wait before the deadline to make the payment. Is no news good news or bad news?
  13. Any guesses as to what day this week they’ll be sent out? I’m anxious to hear back... lol
  14. I was accepted and I am currently in my third year of undergraduate. I decided that I wanted to finish a degree, so I switched from an Honours only program to a General B. A. that can normally be completed in three years. I have some courses to finish over the summer, but I will be starting Law school in September and graduating from my current degree program in November. Universities want to graduate people that will go on to things such as law school. I suggest reaching out to an academic advisor to see if any three year degree options or summer courses are available to you to help you finish up a degree, if that is important to you. I have spoken with various people who said undergrad is not a major factor in hiring after law school. I think the difference between a general B.A. and an honours B.A. after finishing a law degree is quite small. I decided that I was ready for the more challenging academic pursuit of attending law school. After weighing the opportunity costs of pursuing an extra year of university versus working as a lawyer a year earlier and making a salary, the choice was quite clear for me personally.
  15. I haven't heard anything either. I don't think they've read all applications yet. Especially if you wrote the January LSAT.
  16. I'm coming ! see you there.
  17. I know my LSAT is too low, but I think my other stats are above average. I also have really good ECs, reference letters, and work experience at the Department of Justice. General Category. I was accepted at Windsor a few weeks ago but I am really hoping for Western.
  18. I was recently admitted to Windsor Law. My acceptance letter says that I need to secure my place with a deposit by the offer expiry date indicated on the letter. However, the letter simply states “Offer Expiry Date:____ “ and leaves this space blank lol. I would imagine all the expiry dates are the same? Would this be June 1st? Will this show up on OLSAS once my offer shows up there? thanks!
  19. Accepted today. GPA: 3.73 LSAT: 157 3rd year applicant.
