Chances: Low cGPA

Recommended Posts

I absolutely bombed by first two years of university-I had a 1.6 GPA. However, I did a lot better in my final two years with close to a 3.4. My Olsas calculates my total at a 2.6. However, I also have an LSAT of 162 and really strong ECs and special factors that affected my first two years. Do I still have a shot at Windsor?

Hard to say. Windsor is truly unpredictable  but I think it’s possible considering your high LSAT and considering special factors regarding your GPA. They’ll factor in all your experiences. Are you referred ad com or pending review?

    • 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.
