What's your Sask connection? That's very important to UofS, and if you're not from Sask are you from Nunavut, NWT, Yukon, or Newfoundland/Labrador?

Alberta. I have no strong ties to u of s


If you have no significant ties to UofS or Saskatchewan as a province you may not be in a great spot. UofS seems very keen to make it home-town kids, if you will. People with family or history here - in their minds, I'd say people they think are going to stay and contribute to our smaller province versus book it back home. Just my thoughts, but I do know it is of importance to them.

Obviously though they do accept out-of-province students, so with a good PS which plugs some EC's as UofS doesn't have an EC section then you'll likely be ok. It also seems that UofS has a weirdly slow admissions process - it closes Feb 1st and they have only taken like 10-15 people so far, and then from who I know in UofS Law already even with glowing stats you'll still get accepted like  March or April.

What is the GPA of your best 2 years? And what gpa scale (4.0 or 4.3)?

I B2 I believe is 3.6. It is consecutive? I did coop for a few semesters in between my studies too.

    • First time posting after a lengthy "lurker" status. Has anyone seen their Jan LSAT score pop up in OLSAS yet? Mine hasn't. I'm guessing that's normal, as it has only been a few days since the scores were released, but wanted to compare notes.
    • 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.
