Chances this cycle? 3.38/3.65/164

Recommended Posts

Hard to say, maybe around 20-30% chance you're in. If they do offer you a spot, I suspect it'd be after April. 

 

Keep in mind my opinion doesn't mean shit and I don't know much about admissions (aside from reading a bunch of previously accepted threads) :P

I saw some one in the accepted thread get in with a lower cgpa than you and a 158 lsat. In fact, I'd say quite a few have been admitted with lower stats than you. Osgoode seems to be very holistic this year, so none of us can really give you an indication of your chances. Only time will tell!

    • I was wondering if anyone who applied for Crown summer jobs in Ontario has heard anything yet? And if so, how long after the deadline did it take to hear back? I say this because the closing dates varied quite a bit. Thanks in advance!
    • First acceptance and it's my dream school!!! CGPA: 3.51 L2: 3.68 LSAT:161 General Hope to see some of you there!!!
    • Of that, I had no intention. That is all. I was aware that a poor LSAT punishes Francophones as mush as it does Anglophones. I was just saying that it is an unknown factor to me as to whether the school specifically markets itself to Francophones in their orientations (by addressing linguistic capabilities and R-Scores for CEGEP students with just as much attention as they do the LSAT and the GPA). That is all.  I appreciate your advice regarding the LSAT, I am currently investigating as to whether I should take it another time. It is a lot of work and my thesis here at Oxford is in need of equal if not greater attention. I will see how the year plays out but I am not signing up for another test unless I can 100% say that I can get a score anywhere in or near the low 160 range (which would require at least a couple of mid 160s on some mock tests). A source of my optimism though comes from this page: https://www.lsac.org/choosing-law-school/find-law-school/canadian-law-schools/mcgill-university-faculty As indicated by the chart at the bottom, with my GPA and LSAT percentile range, it is Possible and not Unlikely that I would be accepted to McGill university. Couple that with the fact that the school has admitted in its own resources here https://www.mcgill.ca/law/files/law/2018-mcgill-law-admissions_presentation_fb.pdf and here https://www.mcgill.ca/law/bcl-jd/admissions-guide/eligibility That they admit that the lowest scores that they will accept range from 150 -152. They have also said here: http://lrstv.mcgill.ca/ListRecordings.aspx?CourseID=21828 that they do not have a low-end cutoff when it comes to LSAT, GPA, or R-scores, and encourage you to apply, especially if you are deficient in only one department. The other option that I have, although I have not investigated this, is applying as a mature student following the expunging of my LSAC records after a five year period. Do you have any insight on if this is a good strategy? I trust that provides a bit of perspective. I am curious though, is there anything above that I mentioned about buffing my CV that could use some improvement?
    • This is a hard question but here are my two cents. I’m at UVic and, in all honestly, I don’t know if I’d come here if I wanted to settle in Toronto. The people who are coming in from Toronto aspire to live in BC. What’s nice about Vancouver is that most of your law school friends will live there after graduation so you’ll have a built-in social network but Vancouver, as a city, isn’t as urban or diverse as Toronto. If you’re into cities, you’ll likely find Vancouver to be lacking. I’m a city person and I love Vancouver but I grew up there. I only know of one person who managed to secure a job in Ontario and it took them a lot of time plus lots of trips back home. Some people are clerking out in Ontario but I don’t know if they’ll be staying there long term. From what I hear, job-seeking is much more competitive in Toronto anyway so maybe it’ll equal out? It’s much easier to get a job in BC because there are a lot of social events sponsored by firms and many opportunities to meet lawyers prior to applying to jobs. I don’t know if you’ll have the funds to attend events in Toronto. I’m sure you’ve also heard that you should study in the province you want to stay in so that should be a factor unless you plan on avoiding courses focusing on family law, employment etc.  As for UVic’s reputation, I’m not certain but I don’t think it has the same ring to it as UBC. We’re a much smaller school and most of what people will hear about is our environmental/indigenous law focus (so this may work your way if you plan on going into either of those fields). I’ve definitely heard of an alumni network out in Toronto but it’s much smaller.  You may want to contact Laura Pringle at UVic’s Law Careers Office. She is very forthcoming and might be able to give you a better sense of how many students are able to move back to Toronto without issue. But, as it stands, if you are certain that you want to live in Toronto after graduation, I would recommend going to school in Ontario. 
    • I would go if I were non local and you haven't visited the city before. It will give you a chance to look around and see where you may want to live!
