Rejected from UofC 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Rejected Friday. 
L2: 3.0

LSAT: 158

Excellent LOR and EC's. I volunteered with two organizations for 5 years through my undergrad and worked full time as well. Recently been volunteering as a court worker. 

I knew it was a long shot especially with my GPA but thought I would try anyway! Good luck to all who are still waiting!

No, I haven't. Still waiting to hear from a couple schools. I'm not feeling super hopeful! Lower GPA seems to be a no go no matter what else you have this year.

I am sorry to hear that. Considering your ECs and letters, I feel like you were a worthwhile candidate. Its unfortunate that a lower GPA can hold people back so much as its hard to undo.

There is a special circumstances section, and you can email or mail your special circumstances documents.

There is a special circumstances section. There is no access category. Applicants need to understand this: the confusion can literally cost people spots.

    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well. 
    • Here is some more information that I just learned from calling a few schools, for anyone interested in this topic and reading this thread.  When determining cGPA, all ontario schools go by what OLSAS provides, and OLSAS counts all courses taken at an undergraduate level regardless of whether they are counting towards a degree or not. How schools look at L2 is internal and possibly different for each school.  Schools outside of Ontario because they dont go through OLSAS probably also have their own way of looking at cGPA and L2.
    • How did you get to 78,262? I assumed the UofT tuition to be $33,300 and UBC tuition to be $12000. On-campus UBC residence seems to be slightly more expensive compared to grad house at UofT
    • I read that all Canadian law school provide good legal education. What constitutes a good legal education? Ability to find employment, good professors, better network, good clinical opportunities? What would be considered a 'bad legal education'?
