Also accepted on the 15th, but thought I would still chime in. 

 

LSAT:160

 

B2: 3.61/4.3

 

Strong Sask connections. (U of S grad in spring)

 

Also to those possibly wondering about "date received" on the application portal I was checking it quite frequently. My file had two date changes, my initial date received was the day I applied, then it changed to Dec. 2nd and then changed to Dec. 15th. I received my offer from Doreen very shortly after the second date change.

 

Will be accepting.

Quick question for everyone!

 

Does USask only look at L2 in terms of GPA? How does this work if I am wrong.

 

Congratulations on the acceptances as well!

They look at best two years.

 

September to April is considered a year. 

 

And yes, it is GPA-based as far as I'm aware.

Thank you for clarifying.

 

Not too late to apply is it?

 

My B2 and L2 are the same at 3.50. Worth a shot or forget about it? ECs and LORs are very strong.

    • If you are truly interested in a career in family law then Nicholas Bala is all there is to say.  Foremost expert in Canada.  Take the opportunity to study under him.
    • Is that the Dudley v. Stevens case that determined that the defense of necessity was unwarranted in the case of eating a fellow crewmember to survive? I'll have to remember this case if I'm ever contemplating cannibalizing my friend on a hiking trip.
    • I took it 3 times back to back and now i'm finishing up 1L at UVic. As long as you keep improving on your scores, you should be fine June 2017 - 149 Sept 2017- 153 December 2017 - 163  
    • Also a 0L and looking to do the same thing so these are the two (more relevant to the law books) that I have found. The first is a really interesting one called "Is Eating People Wrong?" Its written by Allan Hutchinson (also a current or former Osgoode Prof) and it goes over some really notable legal cases from across the world that helped shape Common Law (Like Brown v Board of Ed. etc.) . Most of the cases are super weird (like the first one discussed, which influenced the title) and theres a bit of legal analysis thats included on them but not in a way that I'd say would impact you negatively like pre-reading textbooks would.  One I just ordered is "Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases By and About Canadian Women and the Law" which again would include interesting info, and likely some legal jargon to help familiarize yourself with the language, but I'm assuming also would not negatively impact your studies.    *Edit* Just realized someone else recommended Is Eating People Wrong, but that just shows how good it is!
    • I'm still waiting, been "under evaluation" since December. I have a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and an MA. This is my second cycle applying to Ottawa in the Access category. I was waitlisted last year with a much lower LSAT score. Anyone else still waiting in Access? I hope to be at least waitlisted with a more favourable number this year. I have already provisionally accepted UNB so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in, but I'd like to go to UOttawa or Queens over UNB if I had the option. I called an admissions officer last week and they said they had a lot of Access applications this year, and they didn't have the majority of files finalized until after January, so there may be a bit of a delay.
