Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read and reply ❤️
You're L2 GPA would need to be around 3.8 in order to have a chance at admission with a 155 LSAT, according to last year's admitted applicant profile. If you're at or above this, don't give up hope. If you're not that high, pray for TRU or Sask. Don't go to Rye except as a last resort.
UofA admissions saying that to you may indeed be a not-so-subtle hint that odds are not in your favour with respect to them specifically, but it really has no bearing on your applications with the other schools. So, relax.
