Kind of Regret Applying Access

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I'm starting to regret applying as an access applicant even though my access considerations are legitimate (learning disability). My stats are cGPA 3.57  L2 3.6 B3 3.67 LSAT 164, 165. 

I feel like alot of people who have stats lower than mine are being accepted under the General category and I haven't been accepted anywhere other than Windsor. (I applied to Windsor, Queens, Ottawa, Osgoode, and Western) 

I'm at the point where I honestly believe that I might not get acceptances from the other schools, which really sucks. I feel like if I had applied as a general applicant I wouldn't have been in the position because my application would have already been processed. 

Does anyone have any idea when access acceptances go out? Or have any advice on what I should do in this situation? Should I call the schools and ask about the process for access applicants? 

IDK I'm just kind of sad because I figured I would know by now.

You will get into Ottawa and have a good shot at Queens, Western and OZ.

If it makes you feel any better I haven't been accepted anywhere in Ontario yet, with very similar stats and in the general category. cGPA 3.5, L2 3.8,  LSAT 166. However, I did write in January so that could be why. You have a very good shot at Western and Queens. Not sure about other schools. Hang in there.

I agree with this. I wouldn't worry if I were you.

I'm not sure how Ontario schools work but if you apply under Discretionary at UBC with stats competitive for Regular, you will be considered under Regular (and potentially get in before Discretionary applications are evaluated). It might be worth calling those schools and asking.

Really?? Yeah, I'm thinking I might give the school a call and just ask generally when access acceptances are being released. Thanks!!

Havent heard anything yet either with a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and MA in Access for UOttawa, Queens, Western. I think we're gonna be alright, seems like at least for Queens that they're reviewing access apps later in the cycle this yr. Im trying not to worry, remember that they still have to the end of May to send out offers.

    • 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.
