  1. I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you: 2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad. 3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad. Hope this clears everything up!
  2. 78th percentile. As TheMidnightOil said, I am fairly certain they treat 3rd year students the same as 4th years, so I am pretty sure I got in based purely on stats (index of 247.75). While this may be true to an extent, I am pretty sure most of the schools in Canada treat 3rd and 4th year students the same (except for U of T, Osgoode and U of C which all heavily emphasize a degree, unless you have exceptional stats). To support my assertion, I got into Queens, Ottawa and U of A this cycle as a third year with a 160 and 3.9 (OLSAS CGPA: 3.83) and decent EC's in my opinion.
  3. That's interesting, my deposit was $1000. I wonder why it differs by student?
  4. If you can take spring/summer classes and end up with 90 credits by the end of 3rd year, I am pretty sure you will be treated equally with 4th year applicants.
  5. I got in as a 3rd year applicant this cycle with a 160 and 3.9. So I definitely agree that it is worth the shot!
  6. Hello everyone! I have been lucky enough to get into a few schools, but now I am having difficulty choosing which one is best for me. I currently attend University of Alberta and live in Edmonton with my family. I am leaning towards corporate law/BigLaw and would like to preferably practice in Toronto or Edmonton. I am fairly certain Ottawa is out of the picture, so I am trying to choose between Queens and UAlberta. Is there a big difference between Queens and UAlberta? Would any of these schools give me a competitive advantage in securing a job? I am currently leaning towards Queens as it gives me access to the Toronto and Edmonton market, but some suggestions/help would be great. Thanks in advance!
  7. Shoot. I forgot to mention, it’s a 4 year degree!
  8. Yes it’s a 3.8! Should I mention the first LSAT in case or is it pointless?
  9. Hey people! I just needed some help regarding my LSAT score and personal statement. I got 151 the first time I wrote the LSAT, which I just wrote as a practice run, barely studying. The second time around I studied and got 160. I know U of A averages LSAT scores so I was wondering if I should mention why I got a low score in my personal statement? And what are my chances? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello! I am new to this forum and am applying to Ottawa, Queens, Osgoode, U of A and U of C as a 3rd year applicant. My stats according to OLSAS are 3.75 and a 160 LSAT (first write was 151 which was a trial run to be honest). I was wondering if it is rare for a 3rd year applicant to get in to any of these schools and what are my chances? Thanks in advance!
  11. I was just wondering how rare it is for a 3rd year (out of 4) applicant to get in?
