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.

    • Also a 0L and looking to do the same thing so these are the two (more relevant to the law books) that I have found. The first is a really interesting one called "Is Eating People Wrong?" Its written by Allan Hutchinson (also a current or former Osgoode Prof) and it goes over some really notable legal cases from across the world that helped shape Common Law (Like Brown v Board of Ed. etc.) . Most of the cases are super weird (like the first one discussed, which influenced the title) and theres a bit of legal analysis thats included on them but not in a way that I'd say would impact you negatively like pre-reading textbooks would.  One I just ordered is "Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases By and About Canadian Women and the Law" which again would include interesting info, and likely some legal jargon to help familiarize yourself with the language, but I'm assuming also would not negatively impact your studies. 
    • I'm still waiting, been "under evaluation" since December. I have a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and an MA. This is my second cycle applying to Ottawa in the Access category. I was waitlisted last year with a much lower LSAT score. Anyone else still waiting in Access? I hope to be at least waitlisted with a more favourable number this year. I have already provisionally accepted UNB so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in, but I'd like to go to UOttawa or Queens over UNB if I had the option. I called an admissions officer last week and they said they had a lot of Access applications this year, and they didn't have the majority of files finalized until after January, so there may be a bit of a delay.
