Admissions calculation clarification

Recommended Posts

I'm confused by the Dalhousie admissions calculation. I found the following details:

"Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law (Last 2 Undergraduate or cGPA)
When assessing transcripts, we take into consideration either your
[undergraduate] overall GPA or your last 2 years (10 credits), whichever is better."

Two years of classes would be closer to 60 credits, not 10. Are they really only only considering the last three to four classes (essentially one semester)? What am I missing?

    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well. 
    • Here is some more information that I just learned from calling a few schools, for anyone interested in this topic and reading this thread.  When determining cGPA, all ontario schools go by what OLSAS provides, and OLSAS counts all courses taken at an undergraduate level regardless of whether they are counting towards a degree or not. How schools look at L2 is internal and possibly different for each school.  Schools outside of Ontario because they dont go through OLSAS probably also have their own way of looking at cGPA and L2.
    • How did you get to 78,262? I assumed the UofT tuition to be $33,300 and UBC tuition to be $12000. On-campus UBC residence seems to be slightly more expensive compared to grad house at UofT
    • I read that all Canadian law school provide good legal education. What constitutes a good legal education? Ability to find employment, good professors, better network, good clinical opportunities? What would be considered a 'bad legal education'?
