As we did last cycle, please keep the Admitted threads clear of extraneous discussion. They will remain more valuable and easier to navigate.

A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats that someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not a place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. Off-topic posts will be deleted. Thank you!

YAY! Accepted today and quite shocked given my sub-par LSAT score, haha!

155 LSAT

4.17/4.33 L2

Have lived and worked in Nova Scotia for just over a year, but originally from Quebec. References from two law professors and experience working on judicial reviews. Lots of community work and extracurriculars. 

I hope this gives some hope to other low LSAT scorers! I think my acceptance shows that Dal truly does take a holistic approach :).

Persistence is key, you should be really proud of how you persevered through the LSAT to get the score you wanted.

Got the email this morning and I CANNOT believe it. I'm beyond excited and will very likely be accepting. 

cGPA: 3.5, L2 is very similar

LSAT 164

Special applicant with 5 years work experience, not legal related. Good EC's (varsity athlete, president of a large student group during undergrad). I imagine my LORs were average. Personal statement was longer than the recommended length. 

Went under review around December 12th.

Congrats everyone and good luck to all those waiting!

    • I know this isn't a new subject, but I need to get it off my chest. I just took my first 100% 1L exam (Corporate law) - looking purely at questions I was able to finish in time, my best possible mark is 67%, and my more realistic mark could be 60% or below. I recognize the curve might push that one way or the other, but I'm honestly just at a loss of what happens next. Has anyone else had this experience? Is it ever possible to redo a course? How did you recover (academically/mentally) from this? And just realistically, what impact does this have on the job-search for 2L/articling. Is this kind of mark (maybe a D?) something you can get over? 
    • The chances you have a 4/4.3 at université de montréal after getting a 4 at the certificate are VERY low. First of all, out of 300+ students only a couple in any given year achieve 4 or better. The chance that's you is not super high. Also, people who come from the certificate generally do a lot worse in the bacc. People with 4 in the certificate normally come in and get 3.3 if they are lucky (often less). That doesn't mean it's impossible to come in and get 4 after getting 4 at the certificate, but I certainly wouldn't count on it.  You can choose courses strategically to a certain extent but between your 2nd and 3rd years at the fac about half of the classes you take will be mandatory second year classes (like admin, penal 2, affaires 1 et 2, etc.). Frankly if you want to go to med and absolutely maximize your chances then going to law first is not a great step. If you want to get 4 then that is generally a bit more doable at faculties that do not curve, though frankly by no means easy or likely either at those faculties. Sorry if this is a bit harsh but I think it is accurate. 
    • Not sure, my friend never said how easy or hard it was. I'm sure someone on here can probably give their own experience, though.  
    • Bonjour, J'ai terminé le certificat en droit UdeM avec 4/4.3 et je serai probablement admis en deuxième année pour l'automne prochain. Après droit, je veux étudier en médecine, donc je veux garder une très bonne cote. J'ai donc peur de choisir l'UdeM plutôt qu'une autre université où les notes ne sont pas selon la moyenne, mais si je ne vais pas à l'UdeM, je serais retardé d'un an. Pour ceux qui étudient à l'UdeM, comment trouvez vous faisable d'avoir une moyenne de 4 par exemple? C'est ce que j'ai au certificat, mais j'ai peur que ça diminue quand ça sera selon la moyenne. Faut-t-il choisir ses cours de façon stratégique pour cela? Merci beaucoup!
    • Is it easy to switch from the JD to the single program? Are most people who want to make the switch granted it?
