  1. First of all, I get how you feel and I think a lot of people have these moments of doubt- but you need to believe in yourself, know you have time to perfect your application and be proud of what you've accomplished so far! I find that the best thing that helps me stay focused and feel better is writing a list of how I will get to my goal. Your average is really good right now but you have second and third year to improve it. Putting aside time to focus on the LSAT and scoring high on that is the best way to increase your chances of getting into UofT. But, also don't forget your soft factors! I've heard of people with high stats getting rejected from these schools because they didn't really try for their PS. So around third or fourth year begin thinking about what you want to write about - and make sure to get it edited by a prof or your school's writing centre. Also focus on your mental well-being; because out of everything I've said its the most important! Grades or LSAT scores - at the end of the day, don't define your intelligence or your value as a human being. ☺️
  2. don't feel discouraged! maybe, reach out to OLSAS because it doesn't make sense that it would jump from 3.72 to a 3.32.
  3. I came across a Facebook post where a UofT prof emailed students saying he was capping grades because the department likes lower averages. U of T is notorious for having caps on grades and systematically keeping grades low. OLSAS tries to even out all CGPAs on a 4.0 scale and I've heard the undergraduate institution doesn't matter. This may be a dumb question, but do law schools take things like this into consideration when looking at your profile or does it make no difference? (Also, this isn't to say that other schools are easier to succeed in)
  4. Thank you, sounds good! ☺️ I feel a lot better now that the OLSAS gpa is released because my original calculation was a .04 deviation.
  5. update - OLSAS GPA is 3.63 not 3.61 like I originally thought.
  6. Great, thank you! I will definitely reach out soon.
  7. I misread it which is why I wanted to double check it and ask a forum that discusses questions people have about law school applications. So thank you but maybe practice a little kindness in your responses.
  8. I thought the deadline was November 1st like Canadian schools but I want to double check.
  9. Thank you, ya I'm going to try not to let it stress me out. I guess we are all in the same boat LOL best of luck to you too!
  10. Hi Everyone! Just wondering what my chances are for admission into Ontario law schools (including Windsor) and this OLSAS conversion chart is ruining my life. My U of T transcript has my overall CGPA as a 3.65 but checking the table and the online predictor it varies between 3.61-3.63. (I counted summer school). Olsas table CGPA: 3.61, Online admissions predictor: 3.63, LSAT: 159. I know my GPA and LSAT aren't amazing but they are both pretty decent, just below the competitive level I guess. I'm doing a double major and I also only took the LSAT once.
  11. Hi Everyone! I'm stressed out about my chances for getting into law school given the drop of my GPA with the OLSAS conversion. My U of T transcript has my overall CGPA as a 3.65 but checking the table and the online predictor it varies between 3.61-3.63. I scored a 159 on the LSAT. I know my GPA and LSAT aren't amazing but they are both pretty decent, just below the competitive level I guess, but now I'm not sure of my chances after checking the conversion table. Also, does Western consider summer school in its calculations of the last two years?
