Year 4 grades abysmal

Recommended Posts

i'm currently in year 4 of my undergrad. i've been struggling with some mental health issues, and as a result my grades for this past semester have slipped drastically. since UofT calculates GPA by B3, would my mess up this semester impact my chances of getting in?

if it's relevant, i've indicated on my application that i'll be taking the january LSAT.

No way to tell unless you post your B3 and LSAT (if any)

From UofT Law's most recent tumblr post:

Please note that our GPA calculation is based on academic years and not terms, therefore it looks at annual performances (e.g. both fall and winter terms) . As such, while the new results from just one term will not be used in the GPA calculation, they will have great value since they provide the most recent and additional information on the academic performance.  Regardless of any GPA calculated, we review the full academic record, therefore the exclusion of the grades from the calculation is no cause for concern. We will see and consider the new performance.

    • As a U of T student who has spoken to a couple of family law lawyers because I am also interested in the field, I would not recommend U of T based on your priorities.   Although it is not the best economic decision, I believe there are cases in which practicing family law after U of T can be feasible. Family law departments within full-service, regional firms and boutiques that practice high net-worth divorce law compensate their associates fairly well. However, I would expect to work long hours and sacrifice work/life balance at these firms ⁠—something you're not very interested in doing. Given this, you will be better off going to UVic or UBC (both very well-regarded schools).  Side-note: If you do want to practice family law, just be aware that you will need a thick skin. A family law lawyer said that clients/spouses of your clients can be verbally abusive and even go so far as to send death threats. However, it is very personal, which is what you are looking for.
