Mature Students 2019 accepted/rejected

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

any mature student applicants who have been accepted or rejected, pls share their stats and brief application overview, would help greatly.

I am 33 years old, I dont have the best stats, UofT undergrad, cgpa 2.7, going to write the LSAT in the summer, aiming for a high lsat for my horrible gpa. my L2 is 3.3 and final year gpa 3.7, though. a very steep increase in grades year over year

i picked the wrong major in my first year and couldnt recover from it but that was over a decade ago

I was a customer care manager at a bank for 6 yrs, one below the ombudsman and currently working for the Ministry of the Attorney General as a court reporter for a year now 

also going to volunteer at Victim Services in the courthouse and can get killer references from court managers, judges and crown counsel i work with.

first time posting here, been lurking here forever lol

any input in my situation would greatly help as well

thanks all!

Have you taken the LSAT before? Are there different LSAT requirements for mature applicants at Windsor then regular applicants? Usually the latest that law schools have taken in Ontario was the Feb LSAT. On their website is says Nov LSAT was the last to be accepted. I know this is not what you asked but I hope this does not affect it!

    • For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did?  2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?  
    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
