  1. Whoops, I’m actually planning to apply for 2022. I added a second major to my degree so I’m finishing that up currently. The calculations I made for my GPA’s are based on worst case scenario grades for the upcoming classes I have. I plan to write it sometime next year with enough time to re-write if needed. Just wanting to see how far fetched it is given my stats.
  2. Both GPA's were calculated using the OLSAS table. So basically my academic record is a bit erratic, but I will apply under access and think I can adequately explain everything. I also have neuropsychological assessments and other documentation. I have not written the LSAT yet, but my diagnostic was 160 and I have improved considerably since then. I now typically average -1/0 on both logic games and logical reasoning sections, and am working to boost my reading comp up as well, so I anticipate that I will surpass 160 by a fair amount. If the backstory is relevant to you: I went from one program at one school out-of-province, to another program at a second school, to finally go back to my original program but at a third school in-province. I had been newly diagnosed with pretty severe ADHD and wasn't on the right type/dosage of medication or learning any relevant skills. This meant that I missed deadlines, couldn't read for more than a few minutes, procrastinated until literally an hour before something was due, etc. I had gotten by with great grades thus far because I was good at reasoning my way through things despite not actually knowing the material. My grades at the first two schools were mostly good, but I had some erratic difficulty, including an F because I missed the withdraw deadline in an online course (trying to see if I can re-do the course to replace the grade). And also a class where the instructor incorrectly gave me a D+, but I'm trying to fix that as well. And finally, some B's and the odd C due to the ADHD. Since going to the third school, I now deal with a doctor who specializes in adult ADHD and I have both sorted out my medication (after 4 years of trying!) and worked considerably hard to learn skills for ADHD. I also now get appropriate accommodations that I wasn't receiving at the first two schools. I am quite literally a new person now. I am consistently getting all A's and A+'s. The courses at the second school aren't transferrable so 3/4 of my degree will be completed at this school. I know it's complicated and mediocre at best, but I'm doing my absolute best to make a comeback from the first few years.
