Me too! Got the call 45 minutes ago! Best feeling ever, especially since I'm assuming it's the first day of the first round.

 

Stats, if anyone is curious: 3.95/164

Congrats! I haven't got a call, but did anybody else get an email from the admissions office today saying "UT Law Welcome" and then just providing more details about the law school? It nearly gave me a heart attack!

Ha! Knew you'd get in first round. Congrats to y'all. Everyone else: keep your heads up -- it's only the first day of offers.

I was called a few hours ago, too!

I don't remember exactly what my GPA converted to but I believe it was ~3.06/169. So if you fumbled your undergrad a little like I did, don't lose hope!

Congrats! Was that your L3 or your cGPA? I have to imagine your L3 was higher if not much higher than that. While your LSAT score is awesome, I'm very surprised you would get a first day offer from UofT if thats your L3.

 

Not trying to offend or anything, I just don't want false hope to start spreading if thats not your L3.

No offense taken, nobody is more surprised than me! While I outlined in my PS in detail the circumstances that affected my GPA, I thought only that it might help, I certainly didn't expect a first round offer. Though, that being said, UofT does advertise on its admissions page that students are frequently surprised by the impact of their PS.

I wish I could remember my numbers for certain, and I don't have the time to recalculate right now, but that was my cGPA. My L3 was higher, but not significantly (or at least, I didn't think so).

NineOne, I congratulate you on single-handedly confusing multiple people who are applying to UofT :D

Edit: Just 'cause everyone seems to think UofT ignores your PS

If that is true, you have given many others hope! Congrats on admission!

The other possibility could be that NineOne is a mature student, in one of the "access" categories (etc.) (although I don't know if they start giving out those acceptances on the first few days). But you'll have to include me in the group of those impressed by a person getting in on the first day with a 3.06/169. But who knows? Maybe you've got some corner on the PS market that the rest of people don't have.

 

Congrats to everyone else! For those who are still waiting, know that there seems to be absolutely no correlation that I can tell of between stats/when you get in and your success in law school. Just get in and it's a whole new ball game.

This. It's still only November. Plenty of people get offers in December, January, February, March... hell, some might get offers in August.

 

Until you get to the end of February, you really have nothing to worry about.

Not a mature student, but a dumb one for having grossly miscalculated in the past. I'm not sure where that number came from, but I remain quite sure it's what was calculated before (or near enough). At any rate, using UVic's GPA conversion table my cGPA is 3.3.

Even still, though, a 3.3/169 would not ordinarily expect to be a day one admit. You clearly have other factors going for you.

This all seems a little strange to me as the stats that people are posting here, although certainly competitive for uoft, are not what I would normally consider to be "accepted on the very first day" worthy stats. Is this a sign that uoft is moving in a more wholistic direction?

B3: 3.67 (I think)

LSAT: 170

 

O_O...you're giving me hope!

I feel like a lot of people who are getting the call either have a)stellar cGPAs and/or LSATs b) have very good PS or ECs...

 

For the people who have been accepted, would you guys agree with that statement? Or do you think I'm overanalyzing? :P

    • Crim. I'm a Crown.   Criminal law courses were the one bright spot of law school for me, for sure.
    • I’m applying to all of them. I have a low GPA so I’m hoping maybe Ryerson, queens, western. But I’m very open to anyone who will take me lmao 
    • My file says "complete ready for review." It also says they received my LSAT score yesterday, but on LSAC it doesn't show they've requested it. I'm assuming they'll wait to request them until the early admissions window is closed (at least).
    • So upon looking at what schools im eligible to apply for, I'm realizing I caluculating my GPA lower than it actually is.    My understanding is Queens and UVIC use 4.33 as well as Dalhousie. All of which im applying to. My CGPA through my degree is 84.8. Am I right to say that this means I have a 4.0 on their scales?    My LSAT is: 162  If that's the case where can I apply with a 4.0 and 162?   
    • I have slightly different advice from the above (although I agree that your perception your peers are better off than you is probably wrong!).  You wrote that you're doing a lot of reading and briefing, but struggling with the application. It sounds like you need to focus more of your study time to that. You can do that through practice questions/tests, but I also just recommend making up your own hypotheticals in your head. I always would try to simplify it to the most basic and relatable terms. A lot of 1Ls say they struggle with the old cases because of the language, but I think it's also that the facts of cases aren't relatable. So try applying the rule to relatable problems. I may not be explaining this well. Feel free to PM me with a rule/case and I can give a concrete example of what I meant.  Learning the law matters so much less than being able to apply it, and it sounds like that's where you're struggling right now.
