Windsor single J.D. Chances [3.28, 3.3, 160]

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am debating whether I should stay another year at university or just graduate. I have already spent a year at York university and another 4 years at UofT. But I feel that my gpa might not be high enought to get into the single J.D program. 

According to OLSAS website, 

my cgpa is 3.28 and my L2 is 3.3. I am planning to get 160 or higher on my lsat. 

I would really appreciate your advice as I’m very undecisive at this point.

I don't predict Windsor's chances. Is Windsor the only school you want to apply?

L2 schools usually require 3.7. Windsor is not a L2 school

With this gpa my only chance would be Windsor so I probably won’t apply elsewhere. I’m just not sure if I could get in with a 160 lsat

As others have already mentioned, it's difficult to predict your chances at Windsor due to the schools holistic approach. Despite probably being the most important, your GPA and the LSAT are only two of the seven criteria that collectively determine your admission/rejection. That being said there are many people with similar stats who have been accepted over the years so I wouldn't say your GPA alone puts you at any significant disadvantage.

Do you mean the conversion chart?

Or did you apply through OLSAS and they already let you know what your GPA is?

    • If that is your official OLSAS calculation and it’s so off, I’d be curious to know why as well. Generally speaking, my calculator has been reasonably accurate, so it may be worth looking into what they used to come up with those numbers. Assuming you included everything in my calculator, unless something is wrong with how I did things specific to your situation, they may have made a mistake. It’s rare but it happens. I’d confirm.  Let me know if it does turn out to be my app. 
    • https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/jd-admissions/upper-year-exchange-applicants/transfer-letter-permission-applicants/ Decisions are generally made in accordance with the following priorities: Up to one-half of the available positions will be awarded to applicants on the basis of the strength of their law school academic records to date. It is therefore critical that we receive an indication of an applicant’s standing relative to the rest of his or her class. No fewer than one-half of the available spaces will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate compelling, compassionate circumstances that require them to transfer to Osgoode Hall Law School. Academic qualifications are not ignored in this subgroup but rather are used to aid in deciding between candidates who demonstrate comparable compassionate circumstances. Within this subgroup, priority will be given to: persons who must relocate to the Toronto area due to their own medical condition or that of an immediate family member; persons who would be separated from their dependents where separation to date has been extensive and commuting is not a viable option; and persons who demonstrate extreme financial hardship occasioned by study outside of the Toronto area. You sound a little insensitive to the fact that there are people attending law school with serious needs. My buddy transferred to Osgoode with a strong B+ average, but also had compassionate reasons in that he could hardly afford living expenses and had a wife and children to care for in Toronto.   
    • There likely isn't, I just find it odd that the change from the past cycle to this one is so different. Like I said in my original post, heed Ryn's advice and don't get your hopes up either way.
    • There has to be... most of the people that got in queue a few days ago received an acceptance
    • I didn't think there was any correlation between when you go into queue and when your are accepted.
