  1. For what its worth, I had a 3.35 CGPA, 3.55 B3, 3.61 B2, and a 170 LSAT. I was in at Western, Queen's, Dalhousie, UVic, Ryerson, UNB, I withdrew from consideration at Ottawa, rejected by UofT and ghosted on the waitlist by Oz. My guess is you'd be in at Western, Queen's, UVic, UBC, waitlisted or rejected at Oz (they love high GPA) and UofT (they love high everything). Ottawa is kind of weird about high-LSAT splitters, and I know very little about McGill so I won't try to guess.
  2. For what its worth, I was rejected with a 3.35/3.61/170 last cycle.
  3. Hey there, I had a 3.34/3.61/170 and I was accepted to Western, Queen's, UVic, Dalhousie, Ryerson, and UNB. Waitlisted at Oz, rejected from UofT, withdrew from consideration at Ottawa. I also had mental health issues and filled out Part B for Oz. I would agree with Tennis that Oz and UofT are likely out of reach, but you'll have lots of other great options! Oz loves high CGPA and UofT seems to really want both high B3 and high LSAT. Neither school is very friendly to a high LSAT/low GPA splitter like I found Queen's/Western/UVic/UBC/Dalhousie to be.
  4. Sure. I applied General, although I did fill out section B for Osgoode, I think it was? I was accepted to UVic, Dalhousie, Queen's, Western, Ryerson, UNB. I was waitlisted at Osgoode and rejected from UofT (ouch). I also withdrew from consideration at Ottawa because it was lower on my personal ranking so once I got other offers I didn't want to waste anyone's time.
  5. Have you considered applying to a B2/L2 school or a school with more substantial drops? Western, Queen's, Dalhousie? UBC and UVic are both index based so you can reasonably calculate your chances at those schools. UOttawa seems to prefer a high GPA to a high LSAT. I don't know much about McGill so I can't help you there. I'm just thinking that you might want to apply to some additional schools, just because your CGPA is comparatively quite low and you've picked some programs that aren't complimentary to that. I had a similar CGPA (3.35) and a higher LSAT (170) and I applied very, very broadly and didn't get in to either of my top choices.
  6. I had similar numbers (3.34/3.61/170) and I was accepted to Ryerson, Queen's, Western, Dal, UNB, UVic. Withdrew from Ottawa, waitlisted at Osgoode, and outright rejected at UofT. I think you're in at Queen's and Western, but you have low chances at Oz and UofT. I would choose Queen's, Western, and probably even Dal for working in Ontario ahead of Ryerson. Yes it's in Toronto but three years in a smaller city for exponentially better chances at a good outcome are a sacrifice that I was willing to make.
  7. You can always consider rewriting. I ended up choosing to attend a different school but I was accepted to UVic with a January score for that same cycle, and I didn't apply until the night of the deadline so it was overall a very last-minute application. They accepted me a few days after they got my final score.
  8. I did a course but it didn't increase my PT scores at all, so I switched to the Powerscore Bibles and found their methods worked much better for me.
  9. I got in with a 3.35, 3.61, and a 170. Western doesn't seem to fuss over CGPA too much.
  10. Waitlisted yesterday, May 28th. 3.35/170 A little bit bummed but at least glad to be out of the in queue hell!
  11. Sure! So I took time off from work which was incredibly valuable. My job at the time was a 50-ish hour workweek, so I was pretty used to that type of work schedule. The time off plus the winter holidays gave me five or six full weeks of just studying before the exam. What really improved my stamina was that I was built up to 2 PTs and bible chapters in smaller increments. I was already used to doing about an hour of studying per day before I really cracked down, so bit by bit during those five or six weeks I added another PT section or bible chapter until the test. UVic didn't offer me any scholarships, but I also didn't apply for any and I only applied there literally the night applications closed (January 15). I hadn't applied before because I didn't have competitive stats. But I felt pretty good after the test (January 13), so I cobbled an application together super quickly. I didn't look into scholarships at UVic at all because I really didn't have the time.
  12. On Western's website they advise that the incoming students not sign leases until the school announces a firm decision about online/in-person. I can't see any higher education returning to in-person instruction until they can reopen residences. I know that residences don't really apply to law schools, but I don't think that the universities will open only for specific faculties.
  13. Sure - I completely changed everything about how I was studying, but I think the single thing that made the biggest difference was increasing my mental stamina. While studying for my first two tests and during the tests themselves, I had a really really tough time focusing and felt really defeated by the time I reached the third section. I knew that I wouldn't be getting in with my numbers, and I knew that the January test was my last shot for this cycle, so I had a real do-or-die attitude towards it. I re-started my studying late November and I didn't crack 160 until late December, which was when I began drilling 1.5-2 PTs per day on top of a few Powerscore Bible chapters. By test day I was consistently PTing 168-174 range. So I would say that my best advice is figure out your biggest weakness and aggressively tackle it - and it doesn't necessarily need to be a section or question type.
  14. Hey OP - I had pretty much the same grades (CGPA 3.35; L2 3.61) and a 170 LSAT. I was accepted to Queen's, Western, Ryerson, UVic, Dal and UNB. I was rejected from UofT, am still waiting to hear from Osgoode, and withdrew myself from consideration at Ottawa. Also, my 170 was my January re-write, up from a 159 and 158 in July and October. So there's still tons of hope for Ontario if you can get a good LSAT - especially if you get that score before applying and not right at the end of the cycle like I did.
  15. If I remember correctly, rejections took more than one day in the past, while acceptances and waitlists occurred on one day each.
