Yes, MountainMon, the fact that I got into (and, by the way, graduated from) law school makes my advice more relevant than that of someone who hasn't even been accepted yet. Your posting history on this site is a classic example of the blind leading the blind: you have no idea what it takes to be accepted, because you've never been accepted (and you don't sit on an admissions committee either), but you feel qualified to tell other applicants what they should and should not do.
OP, in the end, while advice from other applicants on this forum may at times be helpful, it's best to take it all with a grain of salt. Go with your gut. If you think something is relevant, put it in. If you think something will help give a clear picture of what you would bring to the class, put it in. Let the admissions committee know you. That's extremely important.
Again, best of luck
OP, Canadian law schools are universally good schools. We are not the states with its wildly disparate programs. So apply everywhere.
You are what the access category is made for. Definitely look into it and take time with each application.
And good luck.
I just scored a 154 on the August LSAT. I'm going to rewrite because my PTs lately have been around 158-161.
However, with a 154, a 3.7 GPA (B2 closer to 3.85) and what I believe is a strong access claim, would I get in somewhere even with these stats?
I am looking at applying to Windsor, U Ottawa, Western, Queen's, Lakehead and Ryerson at the moment because of my initial score.
I'm also bilingual, not sure how much that counts for Ottawa admissions.
Any advice is appreciated.
