From a perspective of stats only, it seems unlikely. For comparison, I was rejected off the waitlist last year with a 3.25 and a 153, and I applied Access. But UOttawa could accept you for holistic factors.

I think you have a chance (a chance, not anything competitive) at almost any school. Just apply and try. 

Do bring your LSAT up though. I think as your LSAT increases, your chances kind of increase too. 

Good luck!

thank you so much for the encouragement! 

I've applied pretty much everywhere (Ottawa, Queens, York, UofC, UofA, TRU, UofS) and I'm just waiting on the replies. I haven't been waitlisted, rejected, or accepted anywhere yet.

Was that last year? Those are pretty good stats I think if you applied with them this year you would have been accepted from looking at the UOttawa Acceptance Thread.

Either way I'll wait and see! I'll update on where I end up getting in. 

Thank you for your input!  :)

Actually, according to AJD19 in another thread:

Dont worry about high school grades, apart from having good enough grades to get into college/university. I was expelled from high school and ended up getting into 8 law schools. Just do well during your undergrad. You can do an undergrad in literally anything.

None of the eight law schools that accepted you were willing to defer your admission while you worked full-time for the past year?

@futurelawyer2023 I diddnt bother going through the process to seek a deferal as I was still undecided on what school I should actually attend. I was also confident I could get back into the majority, if not all the same schools.

For comparison purposes, I have not yet received an offer from uOttawa with the same LSAT score (awaiting January re-write), and my CGPA is 3.71. L2/B2 is ~ 3.9. However, I applied as a mature student, so that likely isn't much help to you. Maybe have a look at last year's Accepted thread to see where you might stand.

That's a really interesting and confident approach, to say the least. Any word back yet from the nine schools, eight of which offered you admission last year? Also, did you only apply to schools that you have decisively chosen would be suitable to attend in September 2019, or are you still undecided? I wish I had your money.

Yup, 2 already(one november, one january offer). I knew going into this cycle it would be between like 2 schools. I applied more widely though to keep my options open and see what happens. I dont have much money at all. If you dont make much $, you can  email most schools in advance and obtain fee waivers so the application fees are waived. I diddnt pay for any of the 5 ontario schools i applied to, except the mandatory 200$ OLSAS fee. Few other schools i had app fees waived as well, paid for maybe two.

    • 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.
