I have virtually identical stats as you.  Would you say you had above average EC's and LOR?

I believe so but I think everyone thinks they do. I have a journalism background with publications and awards.

Hmm not sure, but I just meant that that's my OUAC cGPA. I feel like they must have also looked at my L2 (which was 3.7/4.0) with 7+ courses per term.

Do you know if they take L2 if it’s significantly better than CGPA?

Nothing suggests that that'd be the case. That said, I'm sure that having a great L2 will help you. Still, I doubt they would ever entirely disregard your CGPA.

Posting to hopefully inspire some optimism in other low cGPA folk:

Admitted on Friday morning via email as a mature candidate with LSAT 161, cGPA 3.03 (yup), L2 3.33. Master's degree from a pretty prestigious school, varied work experience, and what I think was a very strong PS. Strong LoR's as well.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks! :) And undecided--I'm still waiting on a few other schools, and have some interesting job opportunities that might pan out as well. I'd be excited for Ottawa, though!

    • Weird that Miller Thomson’s numbers aren’t on precedent yet. They did their hireback weeks ago (it was not good).
    • Waitlisted a few weeks ago.  LSAT 157, GPA 4.0, BC resident, was going to be declining since I have accepted close to home but before I even got chance to decline an email I got this morning said I had a status change so I logged into UNB online and under status change it says "at your request, for application has been cancelled, we do hope you will continue to consider unb in your future plans". I am wondering if this is actually their default message or not? Because I did not request for my application to be cancelled! If it is they have that worded very poorly.   
    • Hello, am I the only one thinking that if 1L Fall is 100% online then we should have reduced tuition fees? ...I feel like our non-use of campus should be reflected in this at least by some amount! 
    • I mean, basic research shows that McGill always takes their sweet time. I've made this rant before - people apply to McGill knowing that professors are personally reviewing every single application and considering every aspect, from grades, references, LSAT, CV and personal essay. The law fac has to follow deadlines for CEGEPers, mature students and regular applicants. All of this is done while simultaneously teaching, grading and doing research. Most profs don't have TAs doing it. Plus there is a pandemic. And McGill admin does suck. That's what happens with large research institutions - money is for research. Plus all the budget issues in QC.  
    • Agreed with this. If money is in your top 3 reasons for going to law school and you already make six figures, don’t go to law school and find fulfilment outside of your job.
