  1. Copied from a comment I made yesterday on a similar post, but again, same advice. Without a confirmed LSAT score, it is almost impossible to give any realistic insight/advice. As I'm sure you know, what an individual wants or even practices at is likely not what they will score on test day. First, just study hard for the LSAT, then worry about chances and which schools to apply to. Hope that helps!

  3. But you've already applied so that recommendation still applies, whether you withdraw or not. Also, even if you have to apply next year, it doesn't mean you have to start from fresh. You would certainly want to improve your personal statement, but that doesn't mean you can't incorporate parts from this year's. Edit: Besides, would you even want to use the exact same statement twice if it didn't work the first time? (Yes, it also depends on GPA and LSAT)
  4. Just checked OASIS and accepted! LSAT: 162 cGPA: 3.36 L2: ~3.68 Also filled out Part B Congrats to everyone!
  5. If this is a competition, I win...I've been under review since early November 🤣
  6. Not saying to ignore a scholarship but I’ve heard from multiple people that Osgoode has generous financial supports and large bursaries in the fall! Something to consider and complicate your life even more 🤣
  7. Well that was very anti-climatic 😅
  8. I just e-mailed them as I have other offers with deadlines at the end of the month and I was advised decisions will continue until mid- to late-May and they cannot speak to any particular applicant's decision or status until that time. Not that this really helps you but just letting you know what I was advised.
  9. Not from Vancouver, but from northern BC and seriously considering Dal so you've got at least one person to catch your vibe!
  10. Not trying to push you in one way or another, but as stated above, Dal does give out general bursaries in the fall which I've heard can be pretty generous and quite a significant number of students receive those or scholarships. Obviously though, not everyone gets one so take that as you will. Geographic proximity is a factor and many say "go to school where you want to practice," but this blanket statement isn't a hard and fast rule when considering where one gets accepted, tuition, scholarships, reputation, etc. I would agree that proximity helps one in job applications/securing articles, but I also don't see a significant downside to attending Western/Queen's/York and later wanting to get into the Vancouver legal market. Although it may not be as easy had you attended UBC, I don't think it's a substantial factor if one were to put the work in to obtain a job (i.e. applied broadly, scheduled interviews one week and flew out or did online, had good grades, etc.). But for smaller and more regionally focused schools (i.e. USask or UNB), this may be much harder, just cause they are tied to their local markets and don't have that broader reputation like UofA, for example. I agree with you though, Dal does attract many Ontario-focused students, even Vancouver-ones, the student pop. is quite diverse.
  11. Although I am not arguing UofA has better access to Toronto (frankly I would argue with you that Dal has better access to Toronto), this reason is well, ill-conceived. Not only is the flight from Edmonton only an extra 60-90 mins (which isn't very much), geographic separation is not correlated with ease of getting into a legal market. If this were the case, USask graduates would have an easier time getting into the Toronto legal market than UBC, which is just false. They may physically get to the city faster, but this is irrelevant when considering access and the school's history with placements. Overall, don't base decisions on distance when neither school are in the legal market you want to enter.
  12. Should only take a couple weeks if you're approved, I believe mine came back in less than two weeks.
  13. You should get into one of them, if not both. We basically have the exact same stats (3.36, 3.68, 162) and I was accepted to Queen's a couple weeks ago (as well as Dal). As @boat said, 3.36 isn't a bad GPA (it's a B+), which many other students would be pleased with, so don't throw it off as if it's nothing. Good luck!
