  1. Unsurprisingly rejection today. 82% (cGPA - worst 4 grades) / 156
  2. Just got waitlisted!! L20 GPA: 3.81 / 4.0 LSAT: 156 (highest), 155, 154 Lots of valuable work experience through co-operative education in the public sector, BC resident, double major in political science and economics. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!!!
  3. Received my offer yesterday morning! L20 GPA - 3.85 / 4.33, and 3.81 / 4.0 Highest LSAT - 156 Two strong academic references / strong personal statement Education - double major in political science and economics, with an international student exchange and co-operative education. Work - lots of valuable work experience through co-ops in the public sector, including a policy related co-op in a legislation branch for the BC Ministry of Forests. Volunteer - not much, except for a recreational sports team throughout undergrad. BC resident / general category Deadline to accept is May 17, 2020. I'm still waiting to hear back from UCalgary and OttawaU which I think I'm in waitlist territory for before accepting TRU's offer.
  4. My best guess is that they just simply take the last 20 courses on your undergraduate transcript. I haven’t heard of any law schools that exclude summer courses except University of Saskatchewan but I think their policy is an exception to the norm. I don’t know what the policy is for TRU when the twentieth course on your transcript lands in a semester with additional courses, but what the University of Calgary does is they include those outstanding courses as part of your L20 as well. You could always email Leanne at TRU and report back to us what she says.
  5. I have nearly identical LSAT and L20 GPA stats, and in the same situation with work and volunteer experience. Maybe/hopefully I’ll get an email today as well 😬😬😬
  6. L2 is shortened from L20, which means the GPA calculated by the last twenty courses on your undergraduate transcript. TRU uses your L20 for calculating GPA, not your cumulative.
  7. Hey what do you think my chances are for UofC? cGPA - 3.59 / 4.0 L20 GPA - 3.81 / 4.0 LSAT - 155 (Oct 2019), 156 (Nov 2019), 154 (Jan 2020) Two strong academic references, and so-so personal statement (I wish I could rewrite it). Education - double major in political science and economics, with an international student exchange and co-operative education. Work - lots of valuable work experience through co-ops in the public sector, one of which was a policy related co-op in a legislation branch for the BC Ministry of Forests. Volunteer - a little bit but not much during university, I also was involved with a sports team all throughout undergrad. BC resident / general category

OLSAS cGPA - 3.56 / 4.0 OLSAS L20 GPA - 3.78 / 4.0 Highest LSAT - 156 Two strong academic references and strong PS tailored towards OttawaU.

  10. Thanks! My goal is a 160 I've got a few so far, and some 159s, but most of my scores are falling in the 157-158 range
  11. What do you think are my chance of admission for UofC's fall 2020 Common Law? cGPA - 3.59 / 4.0 L20 - 3.81 / 4.0 Average LSAT (haven't written yet) - 158 Good personal statement, 2 strong academic references, some ECs, BC resident, general category.
  12. What do you think are my chance of admission for OttawaU's fall 2020 Common Law? cGPA - 3.59 / 4.0 ~ 81% L20 - 3.81 / 4.0 Average LSAT (haven't written yet) - 158 Good personal statement, 2 strong academic references, some ECs, BC resident, general category.
  13. I'm applying to start law school for fall 2020 and I'm really confused about something - should I use the LSAC's Credential Assembly Service while applying to law schools in Canada? If not, how did you collect your academic transcript(s) and letters of recommendation? Does the undergraduate university send your transcript to all the law schools you're applying to or does each law school allow you to upload your own transcript(s)? Do the professors who you collect letters of recommendation from send the letter to the law school or do you collect the letter from them (to then distribute to all the law schools)? Thanks!
