Does anyone know how many applicants were in this category?

I believe it was around 130? Out of the 130 applications they get, they interview 24 applicants for 15 spots. Out of those 15 spots, a maximum of 7 applicants can be from out of province.

I plan to apply this September for next year under the individual discretionary category. I am writing my Lsat June 3. Because of family responsibilities I wasn’t able to complete my undergrad I am a 2nd year 27 year old student. Does any one know any one who got in without an undergrad in IC category?

I will be applying this Sept as IC as well! I am nervous, but I think will get in...early good luck to you! 

 

So this isn't me, but a friend. She got in IC with just the minimum amount of required credits (30?) with decent grades and LSAT. This was 4 years ago, I was super impressed!

All the best to you as well. Thank you for replying.This makes me really happy. I am writing my lsat in June. I am quite nervous  for the application process honestly. Do you have any idea what sort of a work experience did she have?

she had a ton of different things, literally none related to law. she was in her 30s, and just had a badass answer for why she wanted to become a lawyer (single mother, show her son anything is possible, etc etc). Her work experience included being a pastry chef, working for Boeing, ran a daycare at some point. I think they took her because she brought a very unique point of view, and passionately wanted to get into family law to help those through the hell she had to go through (among other things, but that's what she said she thought sealed the deal). Going in through IC means you need to have some sort of story or good reason as to why they should accept you, from what I hear! She also had strong recommendation letters from some professors and professionals she knew through her previous job experience.

Wow that is awesome. I am hoping they consider me in that case. I have not a similar story yet a similar story. Thanks for answering that. All the best for your application.

    • Je suis allée voir pour l'année passée, c'est allé jusqu'au 12 mai les acceptations et par lui suite ils ont sorti la liste d'attente la journée même. Je crois qu'on en a encore pour un bout. C'est lourd haha. Mais bon l'année passé il y a eu le lockdown et tout et j'imagine qu'ils ont prit du retard,  je ne crois pas que ca va aller jusque là cette année. Mais honnêtement j'en ai vraiment marre d'aller voir mon centre étudiant tous les jours. J'ai tellement hâte de savoir j'ai des arrangements à faire (loyer, nouvel appart, nouvelle ville etc).  Courage on en a surement pour moins d'un mois d'attente ! 
    • It seems like the offers that were made on the 15th came from the general category. Pure speculation- but maybe the access committee hasn't sat down for an assessment session since the April 1st deadline? Hoping there's movement for access applicants soon  
    • What score did you end up with? if you don't mind me asking. And was that it? just the seven weeks? 
    • Je connais quelqu'un qui l'a fait et ça donne des sessions assez chargées! Elle l'avait plus fait par opportunité, mais c'est certains que ça peut être intéressant d'avoir les deux. Il y a plus d'info sur le programme combiné ici: https://droit.umontreal.ca/fileadmin/droit/documents/PDF/programmes_combines/LLB_JD_etudessuperieures.pdf 😊
