I have a 3.72 GPA and a 164 LSAT and still haven't heard back. Applied Access as well.

I'm sure we'll hear back soon, whatever the response may be.

CGPA or L2?

I have to say it's very strange you're not in at Western. Maybe they are more holistic than we give them credit for. Then again you're in at other schools so maybe there's a lot of weight on the essay scenario thing ahahahaha

I thought I was very diplomatic in the scenario part but I tried to apply a social justice oriented letter to a school not known for that - which I guess is why they don't want me, there's only 11 days left if they want me or else my app will be cancelled for U of T

Unless you hear a rejection it doesn’t mean they don’t want you. If you haven’t heard anything it could very well just mean they’re still looking at applications. Although I am curious, if you have been accepted to other schools and aren’t looking to attend Western, what is the hold up?

i have 169 LSAT, L2 = 3.8 and haven't heard back

My CGPA is 3.0 tho, i got straight 50s my first year.  perhaps western has started moving towards a more holistic admissions process?

It's most likely they are moving towards being more holistic, after all it seems to me that it would be hard for any school at this point to focus solely on stats.

On the other hand, Western does not ignore CGPA, so maybe that's what's holding you app back. Regardless you have a hell of an lsat, congrats! I'm sure you've probably already got some other acceptances.

My stats are similar to yours, I hope to apply this Fall.

For those wondering, Western does have a blog updating current applicants. It seems a lot of people have not discovered it for whatever reason—i only found out about it a few weeks ago.

Round of new offers coming Thursday the 11th! Good to know, I've got my fingers crossed.

I actually got an email from Western admissions yesterday asking for more information. Hopefully that means my file's currently being reviewed and I'll get to hear back in this next wave!

What kind of info where they looking for? I haven't heard a single word from them. Would like to hear anything even if it's for more info.

I applied Access so they just needed some more information about that. Nothing too crazy but at least I know it means they were looking at my application.

    • Going to help Ryn out when I can. I have the same experiences as them.  The review teams do not have the previous files, but we can request the information from admin if we needed it.  Practically speaking though, the scenario you're worrying about will not happen. It's quite rare for us to look at your previous application.  That being said I've always been of the opinion that you should tell the committee about your experiences. No reason to remove them IMHO 
    • There are a lot of recent topics on this website that you can review that discuss ways a new call can obtain employment. I was called in June 2019 and got my current job off of contacting a partner from a firm that was hiring in one practice area and providing him with an application package. I then did two interview with them, as per normal. Other people I know tended to do the same thing, rather than relying on Indeed, etc., just because it is so competitive and unless you are a superstar, it can be hard to distinguish yourself. 
    • If OP went to TRU in 1L then UBC in 2L, I'd assume they just didn't have strong cover letters/resumes. I'm in 3L at TRU and received 9 Vancouver OCIs with the following grades: A-, B+, B+, B, B, B, B. I had heard rumours that transferring to UBC from TRU/UVic looks bad to employers unless you had a compelling reason to transfer (family issues, you got married, etc.). I have no idea how true that is, so yeah.
    • Its mostly hyperbole for the pace of it part, I don't really see myself holding a tin can and a sign that reads "Will review contracts for Food".  There is nothing wrong of course with teaching fundamental skills. Just borrowing a page from say, physics. They teach fundamental theories and its very important to. But its laterally supplanted with learning how to use sophisticated machinery, and now supplanted with learning how to design and program simulation models. We spend like, an hour a week learning to use Westlaw and Quicklaw which are the tools of yesterday. We learn nothing about how these tools are going to operate. But yes, case summaries have not changed. It literally went unchanged for over a decade. Not for criminal law obviously, but the summaries I looked at were virtually identical to mine in teaching ratios and so-on with the same cases used. My point wasn't that it isn't useful; but the way of teaching it has not adapted yet and this is IMO problematic.  Sorry I seem very bitter and so-on, but I am just kind of frustrated with how archaic some of the curriculum for law schools generally seems to be entering my second year. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to answer my previous question. I may be applying this cycle and have a question with regards to the Sketch part of the application. When I previously applied to Law School I added every little volunteer/extracurricular from the time I entered University. For simplicity purposes, I wanted to retain only the last 3-4 years of relevant experience. Would this be a problem for an individual that had more sketch items in a previous application 1-2 years ago? For example some activities are not included at all whereas they were on a previous application?  And just for the sake of knowing I guess, would you have access to and look back at a previous application if you were assessing a candidate?
