Accepted! Because of the time difference they called while I was asleep, but I just got up and saw the email. 

LSAT: 168

CGPA: 3.9 

U of T is my second choice so I'm very happy :)

IN!!!

cGPA: 3.65

B3: 3.82

LSAT:164

Great EC's (or so I would like to think: research in STEM in Canada and abroad). 

Just got the email right now. I didn't receive a call but my voicemail isn't properly set up so perhaps they called while I was in the subway today???

In shock.

I was paranoid about the email being real lol very unnecessary

Just got my admission voicemail. I was at a company Christmas party so I must have missed it while dancing (according to the time, to Toto's Africa of all things, bless the rains) but when I heard my voicemail at Union Station I screamed so loud someone might have called TTC security on me.

 

Oh my god I waited the past five years of my life for this. 

CGPA: 3.7 (or 3.72 depending on how OLSAS calculates study abroad credits)

B3: 3.81 (or 3.82)

LSAT: Cancelled, 162, 165

Got the voicemail at 8:30 pm (a lot later than I ever expected.) 

 

I wish the best of luck to everyone waiting and congratulations to everyone admitted. Whether you'll be attending U of T or not, I hope to someday meet you in the legal field where your forum name becomes a face to recognize and a great person to remember. Cheers.

I'm in - guess it's about time I stopped lurking and made an account here, so hi everyone! :) 

LSAT: 179

cGPA: 3.95

Probably below average ECs, but a strong PS and optional essay.

I’m in complete shock and only wanted to post to give some hope to the lower LSAT scorers like me.

Got in with a:

cGPA: 3.81 / B3: 3.93 / L2: 3.94

LSAT: 148, 158, (waiting on December)

Last name: close to the top of the alphabet.

I would say my PS and application as a whole were mediocre at best. 

It’s so hard to believe I got in, but I guess the LSAT isn’t everything, goodluck everyone!

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
