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 the place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. Off topic posts will be deleted. Thank you!

I got the call on January 14th! 

I applied in the access category 

Undergraduate cGPA: 3.5 
Graduate cGPA: 3.9
149 (My access claims explain the low score...I am so happy that I never have to look at it EVER again). 

My graduate degree is in Social Justice and Equity Studies. My thesis research, and on-campus involvement is closely related to Lakehead's 3 mandates.

I had three very strong academic references (one was from my research supervisor who is also an assistant dean, and has a law degree)

Will be accepting :)

First, I would like to start off my congratulating everyone who has got their call, and wishing good luck to those still waiting. 
 

I got my call on the 7th, and considering this is the only school I applied to for law, it was a blessing that it was right before the LSAT 😂
 

cGPA: 79%

L2: 3.7

LSAT:150

3 LORs from professors who taught various Indigenous courses, all tailored to Lakehead. 
 

Personal statement outlined my passion to work with mining companies and Indigenous communities. I believe this is what helped me stick out as a candidate, and ultimately get the acceptance. 
 

I look forward to meeting you all! Is anyone from the GTA planning on going to the welcome day?

Are you going to be flying or driving up? I really want to go but I live in St Catharines and it just seems so far to go for one day :(

Lots of experience supervising and working reforestation work and reclamation work on mines. Natural resource management experience was definitely helpful. 

 

First acceptance so as of now I will be accepting. Congrats everyone!

    • Hmmm. I wonder is that means that Edmonton is less competitive in a way? I know a few people from Bond who are working as they normally would. Similar road as any other person with an international degree. Although all three are working at private firms, no big firms.  I have also heard that local people get precedent. Chatting on this thread again just makes me happy I wrote the lsat and am going the normal route. Although everyone's path is different.   
    • I don't really know about the variance in culture, but it's possible that more rural locations might be getting more local applicants, whereas the bigger cities are getting applicants from all across Canada. If your firm is getting applicants from all of the "top" Canadian law schools, someone who went to Bond probably starts off lower down the rankings during recruitment. Whereas a smaller town might have had the vast majority of its applicants go to local law school X.  I love the Gold Coast and wish I had gone to school there, but I've had about a half dozen friends go to law school at Bond and they all went because they couldn't get into a Canadian law school, so the assumption that employers make isn't without merit. All of my friends have had a tough time finding employment after they've returned to Vancouver, and their job outcomes have ranged from articling at small firms in the suburbs to doing an LLM at UBC to make themselves more competitive for bigger firms to being hired as a contract lawyer by a large firm.
    • Thanks for the comment! I asked a friend in Calgary and she said the same thing as you! So potentially they feel the same in Calgary. Do you think there is a variance in culture maybe? It would be interesting to see what the response is in Saskatoon for example. Or even more rural where it might be less competitive.  I've definitely heard it described as a "backdoor" way of going to law school. Although, it's more work so not really sure it it is worth it. But I know some people just go because they want to live in Australia and don't mind tacking on the extra time. Expensive though.   
    • Hello, everyone in BC please email Law Society (Member Services) if you have been affected due to COVID-19, I have sent them 3 emails till now, and haven't received a reply. Please email them so they take some kind of action. 
    • it might be difficult in general for you to switch to in house though, covid or not. Boutique litigation doesn’t really lend well to that
