0% chance with those grades. I was a mature applicant with an access claim supported by medical documentation, significantly better grades than you and a 173 LSAT and I didn't even make the waitlist.
I would not recommend taking additional undergraduate coursework with the hopes of getting into UofT. That will be a waste of time and money. If you are serious enough about attending law school to consider taking additional undergraduate coursework, I would instead recommend crushing the LSAT and applying as broadly as possible to schools with lower admission standards (and even that will be an uphill battle).
I am currently studying to take the LSAT in January. I will submit my application for UofT by November 1st. I would like to apply as a Mature Student and take the program as part-time (we have a one year old and planning on a second one next year). What are my chances of getting in:
Graduated from University in 2009 with Sociology Bachelor (Honors) and Criminology Concentration
Major Average - 71% | Non-major Average - 61% |Combined - 67%
Employed with the same company since 2012 and have moved up to Managerial position in that time (non-law related, Hospitality)
I think my chances seem pretty low from reading the other topics here, even with a mid 170s LSAT.. What are my other options (go back to school for law-related study and then apply?). Any suggestions are appreciated, I am feeling pretty lost.
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
