Chances cGPA 3.55 LSAT 164 Access Student

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone with a little more experience might be able to predict my chances. 

I have a cGPA of 3.55 (OLSAS calculated) and an L2 of 3.6. I attend the Schulich School of Business as an undergrad which is a really hard program and I explained it a little bit in my PS. 

I got a 164 on my LSAT and I'm rewriting November 17th to see if I can raise it to balance out my GPA. 

I applied as an access student as I was diagnosed at 8 with a learning disability and submitted all the required info.

I had pretty strong references one from a York prof and the other from a lawyer I work for. And I had a lot of experience (president of a business law club), internships in tech, VP positions, etc. 

I applied to Western, Ottawa, Osgoode, Windsor and Queens. My top schools are Osgoode for JD/MBA, Ottawa and Western. 

I would really appreciate if someone could give me a better idea of my chances. I'm nervous about my cGPA and how being an access applicant factors in.

I feel confident you'll get into all of those. I had the same GPA, a slightly lower L2, and a 165 and I got into all but Windsor (where I didn't apply) quite early on.

Phew. Thank you so much, that makes me feel so much better. I haven't found a ton of people with a similar gpa and lsat score so I really appreciate you commenting it definitely helps calm my nerves a little.

    • 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.
