Hm. Still waiting on that verification of December LSAT scores.

​With that, my index score should be good enough.

​I guess we'll wait and see!

Accepted (regular category)

LSAT: 174

GPA: 2.02 before drops, 2.8ish after (never got confirmation)

Index 77ish

 

I mainly want to post because when I was researching chances, I couldn't find a single instance of someone with such a low GPA being accepted to any law school.

 

Congratulations to everyone else!

Just my opinion, but I bet the reason that you can't find an instance is because generally people with that low of a GPA do not score in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

Ha! You have similar to my stats, awful gpa but my lsat was 169. Something this process has taught me is that there is ALWAYS a chance if you give it your all.

Accepted on the 13th of January.

 

LSAT: 151, 157

 

CGPA: 3.88/4.0

Did not try to convert it to the Manitoba scale. However, with drops I would have to guess that it would be close to a 4.3/4.5???

 

Will likely be declining the offer so, another spot should open up soon!

I didn't bother calculating my Manitoba adjusted gpa because my transcript is super convoluted and filled with half-credits.

Just wondering if anyone has heard when the next round of offers will be? 

Although I doubt anyone here can be sure, I wouldn't be surprised if the answer is in 2 weeks+ - those of us with offers had a 2nd March deposit deadline, so they'll have a much better idea of class size/acceptances after that point.

Does anyone know if they send out more offers than the class size in the first round? Class size is a little over 100; if they know that only 50% of people will end up accepting the offer, would they (for example) make 150 offers in the first round?

Okay thanks! Yah after the December lsat and my fall semester grades my index is 76.34, so it's above the early admissions cut off. I'm a u of m student so I'm just not sure if the strikes holding up anything or what.

    • I have gotten silence as well.   
    • Western has said that they hope to have most of their decisions made by May 31st, so it's more than likely you will hear back by then. Until then, you can assume that they haven't reviewed your application yet.
    • Where you get your undergraduate degree doesn't matter, what you do and how you do while getting your degree does. Pick a school that best aligns with your interests and puts you in the best position to succeed. Just make sure you work hard and get good grades, and take part in extra-curricular activities when you can.  If you're interested in and enjoy law & society and/or criminology, take it. If you're as set on law school as it seems you are then you shouldn't have worry about it not working out. And I say that as someone who actually graduated with a law & society major and a crim minor from Laurier's Brantford campus who has still been accepted to law school. Not being in Toronto for your undergrad doesn't put you at a disadvantage when it comes to law school admissions, all that matters is what you do with your time at whichever university campus you spend it.
    • Hey,  Im currently finishing grade 12 and planning on attending law school in the future but first I need to get my BA but I have a hard time picking a university. The one thing I'm sure of is that I want to study in Toronto which narrows it down to three alternatives, York, U of T or Ryerson. Initially, I had my eyes set on U of T based on what I had heard about student experiences and overall quality but the tuition fees are extremely expensive. I'm not trying to major in debts, law schools expensive enough on its own. Then I turned to York which seemed more affordable, more courses to pick from and aproachable teachers but I would have to deal with a long commute. Last but not least we have Ryerson, not so expensive either and way shorter commute but I don't know if the quality of education is any good? As for the program, I was looking at some criminology or law and society because those are what I enjoy but I can't disregard that I need to get a good GPA to get a chance at law school at all. I also have to keep my options open if Law School does not work out and having a BA in arts or criminology wouldn't be to much help, I need to be able to get a job after uni. Then there is the fact that I would like to work with corporate law, so would a business program be better in the long run? Are there any business & law programs? Should I pick the easiest way to secure good grades? Is U of T worth all that money? Which of the schools offer a more secure environment and a good community? Soo... I would love if anyone that has attended/ is attending either of the schools could share their knowledge and experiences, or any advice at all would be good too! Every opinion is welcomed Thanks in advance
