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?

my mom wants me to wait until the last second so that I'm "sure" lol, I also had a really successful cousin come out of western so I was considering it briefly

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.

I just want to say thank you. I didn't know this existed.

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.

    • If they do, that's an anomaly.  Full course load is five per semester, that's the norm. Each university sets their own policy for full-time status and it varies. Queen's may be more accepting than other schools of four course semesters but, technically, that isn't the standard  definition at Canadian schools for undergrad of a full course load. 
    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
