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.

    • Yes, obviously I understand that the missing row changes the acceptance rate rather than the number of applications.  The number of applications piece of the equation seems credible, but the Oxford spreadsheet is too sloppy to trust the other side of the equation (i.e. the number of seats).
    • No matter what the number of seats provided by UofA are missing from the calculation above, it will change the acceptance odds to be greater than my original estimate (somewhere around 40%).  With respect to definition of "application", check the last page of the statistical chart and you can tell the applicants are defined under the context of "academic year", which refers to applicants for law school application instead of for writing LSAT (we all know LSAT itself doesn't involve the concept of academic years although it is used for applications under certain academic year). So I have no doubts in believing the 6745 applicants are accurate number of people applying Canada's law schools for this year as of now subject to following terms (as copied from the LSAT): • These data are displayed by Academic Year, which is the same as the law school enrollment year. For example, academic year 2018 or 2018-2019 would indicate the academic year beginning in the fall of 2018 and extending into spring 2019. • The Current Volume data tables include applicants for all academic terms. Current Volume reports published before 2018 summarized applicants for the fall term only and are not comparable to these new volume reports. • ABA data reflect applicants and applications for ABA-approved law schools. • Deferrals are not included in either the ABA or Canadian data. Deferrals are defined as "applicants admitted for a prior term who were granted a postponed enrollment to the current term." • Please note as defined in this report, an applicant is a candidate who submits one or more applications for any academic term. • The data for this report are updated every evening and will reflect current volumes as of that time. • This report is best viewed in Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer, or Safari.
    • Hopefully the interview works out for you, you deserve it. 
    • Of course I'm getting gowned, but I want to wear a skirt with it instead of trousers and so I wanted to know the protocol as nylons, tights, etc. part isn't published on the law society page for the apparel and I think it may be hot in the June call. 
    • I disagree. If you had spent that $1000 last year to apply to a school that might have accepted you this year, then you wouldn't be paying for another application cycle, LSAT attempt, etc. Also, suppose this year you didn't apply to Queen's and UofT and ended up doing really well on the LSAT, your loss. So you're buying both the opportunity and safety net by spending more at the outset. $1000 also seems pretty high, I think I paid half that for 5 schools. Logic Games is the best section to be the worst at because it's very formulaic and predictable. There's really only 3 different game designs to know.  That might be it. In fact, my first unsuccessful personal statement made this same mistake as I took a law-related major. It's fine to mention your career goals and why, but I expect you went overboard like I did.  Do better on the LSAT. You're right there and the margins are that thin. 1 point can and does make the difference
