Very excited to say I have been accepted to McGill as of yesterday! 

CGPA: 3.98/4.3

I'm not sure if McGill looks at L2 as heavily as some schools, however, my L2 GPA is roughly a 4.2/4.3 

EC's: Volunteer work at a homeless shelter, summer position in corporate services at a well known law firm, various other minor volunteer experiences.  My volunteer experience is not as extensive as I wish, which makes me think my EC's are not the strongest.  However, I worked 2-3 jobs for the duration of my degree, at times working full time with 5 courses. 

Reference letters: Strong I believe! Both from undergraduate professors. One of which is the head of the psychology and neuroscience department for whom I taught a first year psych/neuro lab.  

 

Good luck to those still waiting, you never know when that seemingly stagnant status may change :)

Do they care for the grades you get once your accepted or do u need to keep your GPA the same:)

Based on my letter and what I've read elsewhere, a graduation condition and a GPA condition are distinct. My admission is contingent upon my graduating. However, if a specified GPA is noted in the letter as a condition, this is a GPA contingent condition. 

This is not to say the GPA does not matter at all. Imagine if you changed your mind on law school and your last semester grades were way below your average, affecting your ability to pursue different paths. That being said, it does alleviate some stress to not feel as though the condition is so stringent.

    • Update: People have been accepted with worse stats than me at this point...
    • Has anyone out there gone to meet with Dean Holloway for anything? If so, what for? I've been summoned for a chat and I don't know what to expect. I'm sure it's nothing bad but the uncertainty is doing nothing good for my imagination. He seems like the kind of guy who genuinely likes chatting with students so maybe something along those lines? 
    • Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region: You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate.  There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.
