LSAT was very good, GPA wasn't great. No connections to Saskatchewan.

Based on the letter they sent it seems like you can accept the offer and still go to another school instead, only you lose your deposit. Is that right? Just want to make sure I understand everything before I make my decision.

That's exactly how it works--you will lose your deposit $ if you pay it and decide to go elsewhere. You'll appreciate the law and policy behind this in first year contracts.

 

Edit: I didn't mean that in a condescending way. I'm studying for my contracts exam, so reading your post set off a lot of lightbulbs in my head.

Yup. Got waitlisted with 163.

 

Oh wow... waitlisted with a 3.45cGPA/163?!

 

Was your B2 higher in the year you were waitlisted? Do you have Sask connection?

 

This kind of talk is making me nervous as my stats are quite borderline.

No Sask connection and no change in marks. My B2 is around 3.52. 

 

But don't worry...I'm pretty sure that my getting waitlisted had more to do with me applying very late in the cycle or screwing up my  application.

Ever heard of "willingness to pay"? :-P

 

They lag far behind most (all?) other Canadian school's tuition numbers, and poor saps from all over will pay whatever for this unbelievably amazing awesomeness covered degree, so why wouldn't they jack the price up?

 

It is hilarious seeing them try to justify it in dubious ways though, and then seeing the student body bitch about it and the new dean justify it all over again.  If only the truth was politically correct, right?

 

It was even funnier getting an email last year that some committee had "approved" the tuition hike.

 

Edit- we already had a recent tuition hike, the one you are talking about has not been approved yet, but I would bet on it happening.

Oh I definitely understand why they do it, and I'm happy I'll be through LS before we hit US levels of crazy price

I was accepted back on Dec 11 as well.

 

LSAT: 162

GPA: 3.59/4.5, best 2 were 3.89 in y3/4

Sask Connection: 1 Grandparent born there, with family

And, if it's worth anything I will also have an MA by the time of enrollment.

 

I will likely be declining as I was just accepted to the University of Manitoba, my home province. Best of luck to everyone!

    • ACCEPTED!  Received the call at 10:28am and received the email at 10:45am. cGPA - 3.46 LSAT - 153 I'm beyond excited to join you all in September. Its been a stressful journey, so a massive thank-you to everyone for the support and advice throughout this process 😀 Best of luck to everyone still waiting!
    • It's kind of impressive how bad this advice is.
    • yeppers. got mine last night and got hit by a car while driving my bike 5 minutes later, what a day! (i'm fine, no broken bone) i'm wondering why they closed it so early too, but oh well. keep us posted if you end up calling!
    • After graduating, i decided to study for the LSAT while volunteering. My first score was pretty bad (due to nerves i think), but the second time around (June 15th) i was able to score a 154. I know that a 154 is still lower than the current minimum for law schools in Canada.. Now, while doing PTs, i usually score around a 157-160. I have a CGPA of 3.5, and my B2 would roughly be around a 3.6. Again, just shy of the minimum. I know that law schools look at your application holistically. Just to give you an idea of my work/volunteering experience, I interned for the federal government in Ottawa as a policy analyst for around 2 years, and will be working for the government again in the next month or so. I volunteered at a Non-profit as a policy analyst and advocacy director, as well as other noteworthy volunteer positions such as working with ex-convicts, and helping immigrant refugees integrate into Canadian society. Submission of applications for law school begin in September and i don't want to wait any longer. I'm unsure whether i should take the LSAT for the third time in August and risk getting a lower score, or if i should apply and try my luck. I feel like some of you folks would have a better idea as to whether I have a shot getting in with these scores if i have a strong application (personal statement, resume, ECs, etc.). I think it's the risk of getting a lower score that scares me, because if i do, that would look pretty bad on my application and i think it would ruin my chances of ever getting in. Thanks so much!!  
    • I dont think any schools will look at the two tests differently. I think it is important to recognize that waiting for a regular test to be administered (if that is what you prefer) will probably not happen for a few months, so if you're looking to apply this cycle, I wouldn't wait until the end of the year in hopes of avoiding the flex. You don't want to feel like you're studying or taking the test too last minute... especially if you have to take the test again!
