Accepted today! 

3.89/4.0 (4.01/4.3) L2

157, 159

Non-Maritime resident, general

 

I emailed Rose last week to confirm if my app was complete and she advised me on Wednesday that it was and that it was under review. My last document was received first week of January, so my application has been complete since then.  

 

Dal is one of my top choices, but I'll be waiting to hear back from a couple other schools before making a final decision.

In as of today!

 

LSAT:151, 157

 

OLSAS cGPA: 3.82

 

I believe Dal uses the L2 if it is greater than the cGPA so I would guess that my L2 is closer to a 4.1/4.3

 

Non-maritime

cGPA: 3.80/4.0

Best 2 years: 3.9/4.0

LSAT: 157

Ontario Applicant

    • There were 12 articling students in criminal law in my city when I articled last year. 6 of those were advertised. So write a good cover letter, show commitment/dedication more than anything. But you would be equally well served by getting involved and essentially creating your own articling position (which necessarily wouldn't need a cover letter when your work does all the talking).
    • So what I'm learning is I'm just traumatized from being from Vancouver? (And hearing nothing but horror stories of trying to find pet-friendly housing near UBC). The rest of Canada doesn't hate pets?! [read: /s]   "Affordable" isn't really a word in Vancouver. Neither is "pet-friendly." You get it 😅  I'm also learning that the best thing I can do for my law school debt situation is LEAVE my hometown hahaha
