  1. I completely agree that we need to base our cheerleading in reality, which is why I was trying to point out the strengths of the applicant and how those are weighted differently in different programs. Not all law schools in Canada only care about your grades and LSAT scores. I would say that most do, but a few programs are focused on holistic admissions processes and are interested in recruiting more mature students. A search of a 148 on this website shows you people who were accepted to different law schools across Canada with scores in the upper 140s. Obviously, it was probably not their LSAT score which got them accepted but other aspects of their application. I can't speak to TRU's holistic application process and how heavily they will weigh work experience etc., but I think that highlighting some of these strengths in applications to schools which value work experience, GPA, etc. would be this applicants best chance with their current score.
  2. The above poster is a bit rude and callous. I would say that your experience is great, and way above the average applicant’s experience level. Additionally, the 8 years of work experience makes me think that maybe you could apply as a mature student at different universities- sometimes they have lower LSAT averages. I don’t know if TRU specifically has a mature student application, but you should look for programs that do if you aren’t worried about moving to a different province. Some schools, such as Windsor, also consider the more education you’ve obtained, so your master’s degree may help you there! I hate the LSAT and am applying to these schools with a lower score as well, but if you could stomach a retake and try to break the low 150’s in the January LSAT, I think you’d have an even better chance! Good luck friend!
  3. Hello, I just wanted to check in with fellow OLs and see if they can access their application status from their mytru page? I’ve been checking it every day for updates but can’t seem to open that page today.... thanks!
  4. I am the exact same. I check all my applications at least once a day- and search “2021” on this site daily! I’m really worried because I will have to relocate no matter where I go, and I want to start planning my future! Also, the holidays are always a time where my relatives ask about my future plans and I’d love to finally have some good news to share 😂
  5. I just did my interview and I feel the same way. I really messed up the first few questions but the later ones got easier for me... I am very very worried lol
  6. From what I understand I think that a 150, combined with a high GPA, Sask Connection, AND being indigenous should definitely get you into USask. I have a slightly higher October LSAT (153) and I feel the same, I completely cracked under pressure to and I know exactly where I messed up! Sorry your LSAT experience sucked, but I think you have a good chance of getting in!
  7. Oh my goodness! Are you me? I just posted a similar question! I am still applying, so let's hope that we get in! Honestly, the familial connection seems like it will really work to your advantage! At least from the people I know who got in, most of them had a strong familial connection. I am the first person in my family to attend university so I am shit outta luck there!
  8. Hello everyone, I got some really disappointing LSAT results today. I am currently a MSc student who is defending in December 2020. My highest LSAT is a 153, and my b2 is roughly 3.63/4, my cGPA is 3.42/4. I am a resident of Saskatchewan and have remained a legal resident throughout my schooling, but I got my undergrad and MSc in Alberta. In the summers during undergrad, I came home and worked in Saskatchewan, but since graduate programs are all year I was in Alberta for the duration of my time, but moved home once COVID-19 hit. Overall, I'm worried that going to school in Alberta will weaken my Saskatchewan connection. What are my chances? The U of S is my dream school, but I feel as if there is no way I will get in now. I may try to retake in November, but that is right around my defense date so I am nervous about trying to do both.
  9. Do you guys think that TRU will follow the U of Calgary and not have required references during the Fall 2020 application cycle? I want to apply on Oct.1st, which would require asking my references a few weeks before that date (aka this week). However, the U of C announced on their application opening day (Sept. 1) that they would not require references for this admissions cycle. Do you think this could be the case at TRU? They seem to value references strongly in my opinion, but I thought I would see what you all are thinking. Good luck to all applicants!
