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!

Hey Congrats! Do you know what your Manitoba Adjusted GPA would be? or was 3.17 your AGPA ? Cheers!

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.

    • 1L at UBC here. I was also deciding between UVic and UBC earlier this year. I ended up choosing UBC because I wanted to work in Vancouver and the cost factor (I was able to live at home and save $$$). I was also worried about the competitiveness at UBC but so far it hasn't been an issue. People are super friendly and collaborative, much more so than in undergrad. It was really easy to make friends and form study groups despite the fact that I'm not that outgoing. There is  competitiveness in the sense that everyone is trying their best and striving to be above average but I doubt that that's uniquely a UBC thing. The small group you're placed in also makes a difference. I've heard some posters say their small group is very corporate focused but I found mine to be the opposite - full of social justice and public interest folks. The school is also large enough that you will probably find people with similar interests as you.  If you are interested in criminal law, the Indigenous Community Legal Clinic and the Innocence Project are also great experiential learning opportunities. I'm not sure how competitive these are but an upper year told me that if you're really interested in clinic placements, you should be able to get into one but it may not be your top choice. You could also volunteer at LSLAP within the first month of law school. I didn't do this, but I know people who were going to court in their third month of law school.
    • Pure finding of fact.  Considered but not pursued.
    • You probably can't answer, but did you consider an appeal? Obviously it would be a difficult appeal (of fact) but.. I don't know. This is very sad.
    • Homicide trial.  Deceased is native, Accused is white.  I have a half dozen witnesses describe how after a very brief ambiguous struggle between the two in the middle of the parking lot (some weren't sure who started it, some say Accused started it, some only see it once it starts), but each of the six witnesses describe the native fellow being knocked to the ground, and the Accused stomping on his head.  Deceased never gets up and is pronounced dead an hour later.  Many of my witnesses had been drinking (but didn't know each other, or either party), but also included the south asian liquor store employee who hadn't. Accused takes the stand and flat out denies stomping or kicking the Accused on his head. Judge doesn't just have a reasonable doubt - he accepts the word of the white Accused over the half dozen independent witnesses.  He finds as a fact no head stomping.  Liquor store employee was too argumentative and adamant about what he saw (which was, lets remember, one man killing another), which called his credibility into question. Deceased's family is in the court. They fucking lose it.  I can't blame them for one minute.  Sheriffs are called as they're yelling and screaming at the justice. Worst trial of my professional life. There was a major part of this story I'm leaving out that happened at prelim as it gets perhaps too identifiable (though the media didn't cover this story, and the family wasn't savvy enough to have gone to the media), but it gave this whitebread prosecutor a major appreciation for what the criminal justice system is like for minorities.  The family told me from day one this would be the outcome.
    • Hi,  I am an applicant from Asia, and I sent in my application to UofT by the October 31st deadline.  I think I have pretty decent stats (4.0 GPA according to WES/OLSAS, 171 LSAT, okay softs and PS), but I haven't yet received an email from UofT during their Round 1 of admissions, and don't think I will be.  I know there is no absolute guarantee that they will accept me, but I was just wondering if there is a general trend for schools to notify international students of their acceptance later in the cycle (like in Round 2 or 3) than domestic students.  Thanks!
