  1. Assuming you have calculated your L2/B2 correctly, you would have a good chances of getting an acceptance from U of A, U of C, Dalhousie, and Queens. This is based off of your posting history. I cannot speak for the other schools that you have posted your stats for. Hope that helps
  2. What about a semester where I just HAD to catch up on Breaking Bad?
  3. your LSAT is average, but with your low GPA I think you may need some good ECs to get accepted to any law school in Canada. What is your L2? B2?
  4. Yes, unless you have failed one or more courses during the winter 2020 semester. If you did, they would not use that to contribute to the credit requirements/satisfying program prerequisites. If you did your undergrad at U of A, they will look at your winter 2020 grades though
  5. I've re-read the email that Courtney has sent me, and I noticed that if you are an applicant that have received your undergraduate degree from U of A, they will count your Winter 2020 semester grades for their GPA calculation. However, a grade of NC will not contribute to credit requirement for admission and will not satisfy program prerequisites (while a grade of CR will). If you are an applicant that have received your undergraduate degree from elsewhere, they will not consider your grades for the Winter 2020 semester for the GPA calculation. But as long as they are passing grades, they will count towards the credit requirements and program prerequisites. Sorry for my confusing back - and - forth. jdapplicant1996 is correct (although if you get a failing grade like a NC, it will not count). Here's the copy of what Courtney sent me: Calculation of Admission GPA - University of Alberta Students A University of Alberta grade of CR from Winter 2020 will contribute to the credit requirements for admission and will be accepted as satisfying program prerequisites. A grade of NC will not contribute to credit requirements for admission and will not satisfy program prerequisites. This is the process that will be followed for applications that are in progress, and any future University of Alberta applications that include the revised Winter 2020 grading scheme. Calculation of Admission GPA - External Post-Secondary Students For external post-secondary students applying to an undergraduate or graduate program at the University of Alberta, grades for courses taken in Winter 2020 will not be included in the calculation of admission GPAs. Passing grades from Winter 2020 will contribute to the credit requirements for individual admissions, provided the grades meet the threshold required for transfer credit as outlined in the University Calendar, and will be accepted as satisfying program prerequisites. Non-passing grades from Winter 2020 will not contribute to the credit requirements for individual admissions and will not be accepted as satisfying program prerequisites.
  6. Yes. TRU, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to exclude all courses from Winter and Summer semesters of 2020. They will be looking at your grades for Fall 2020, and then Fall 2019 and before in their GPA calculation of the last 15 courses. U of C is excluding all courses with grades of CR/NC or D+ and under only for the Winter semester of 2020. However, I believe that they are still considering these courses to count for their L20 courses.
  7. I think you are confusing U of A policy on GPA calculation for U of C. I called and emailed Courtney Wagner and she told me that although the CR/NC grades for Winter 2020 would not be counted in the GPA calculation, they would be counted for the L60 credits. U of C and U of A have very similar policies for this situation, so it may get confusing.
  8. Can you elaborate on your experience a little more? Were you a family/criminal lawyer, how many hours of sleep would you get on average, etc?
  9. Thats exactly what law admissions are looking for. Why dont people mention their rabbit stamps??
  10. Hi everyone. I am posting here what I have posted in another thread, just in case people may miss it. I have emailed TRU about this new policy, and they said that they will look only at the last 15 courses now instead of the last 20. However, the semesters they would consider for GPA calculation would be: Fall 2020 (this september - december), then they would jump to Fall 2019 and before that until they land on 15 courses. This new policy seriously screws me over too; I would understand it if they would not count the Winter 2020 semester, but why summer as well? There is absolutely no reason for that
  11. Yup...this seriously screwed me. The grades I received from those semester that TRU is excluding is some of my best grades I got so far. I'm calculating at least a 0.3 GPA difference if I exclude those courses I have also emailed TRU, and they said that now they are considering only 15 courses instead of 20, but the semesters they would consider for GPA calculation would be: Fall 2020 (this september - december), then they would jump to Fall 2019 and before that until they land on 15 courses. My chances of being admitted has gone from a half - half to a near impossible unless I go nuts and score big on the LSAT yay
  12. Im not from ontario, but I would suggest you should look into L2/B2 law schools? I know that Queens and UWO are under that category in Ontario. If you dont mind relocating, Dalhousie/Alberta/Calgary/TRU also looks at your last/best 20 courses.
  13. Congrats! Did you apply regular, or special considerations?
  14. psssst... the guy is a troll. His only post history is this thread. And it looks like he made his account just to respond to this thread. thats why I didnt (and wont) respond to him
