I think without some really exceptional work experience or references, it'd be tough. Western puts a lot of weight on the L2 and yours is pretty low. And the LSAT is lower than the median as well. The mature category isn't really an "easier" category, it just allows you to use your post-grad experience to counterbalance weaknesses in your application.

Would you not consider a PhD/Post-Doc to be exceptional experience? I just got into Osgoode with below median LSAT and GPA and I attribute that to my MSc. I feel like schools look highly on advanced degrees.

I think getting a phD itself may or may not be. But if you can draw attention to outstanding work, publications, etc. you accomplished during the pursuit of those advanced degrees, that would certainly count.

I've seen in previous year's threads people getting in with lower stats than you. You might have to wait until the next round of admissions or to get in off the waitlist, but I think it could be possible. Would you consider taking the Feb LSAT? That could definitely help you increase your chances.

I am taking the Feb LSAT which is in almost 3 weeks from now. The sad part is that my problem is in RC, which needs longer time to be dramatically increased.

just doing preps, no other options !!

    • Congrats on being admitted! If you dont mind sharing, what was your LSAT score?
    • Thanks for the help, everybody. I decided to fire off a quick application to Manitoba. My index score of 84 looks to be a good ways above their cutoff, so that's at least a fallback for me if none of the others pan out.

    • 1. Have you ever been found guilty of, or convicted of, any offence under any statute? Please exclude speeding and parking tickets. (If you have been found guilty or convicted of an offence under the Young Offenders Act or the Youth Criminal Justice Act, please refer to the section online called “Completing the Paralegal Licensing Process Application” for further details.)   I received a warning range suspension 5 years ago. Non-criminal. Should I disclose?   "Warn-range" suspension Drivers who register a blood alcohol concentration in the warn range of .05 to .08 pose an immediate danger to themselves and other road users. If caught driving in the “warn range,” you will receive an immediate driver’s licence suspension at the roadside: For three days for a first occurrence For seven days for a second occurrence and you must undergo a remedial alcohol education program For 30 days for a third or subsequent occurrence in a five-year period, and you must undergo a remedial alcohol-treatment program and have an ignition interlock condition placed on your licence for six months. If you choose not to install an ignition interlock device, you must not drive until the condition is removed from your licence. An administrative monetary penalty is also imposed on drivers suspended for registering in the warn range.
    • I'll echo everything that McSweeney says and add that's a pretty rough mobile home park too. I had a friend that lived in the Boardwalk apartments nearby. The cops would show up to the mobile home park regularly and there were definitely a few meth heads living there. You could do a lot better.
