Calling for your GPA?

Recommended Posts

I am torn because I really want to know how they calculated mine (I'm not bad at math, but there's an unusual element to my academic history and I have no idea how they'll calculate it) - but I am very much loathe to annoy anyone in the admissions department.

I'd also be curious to know whether anyone does reach out successfully on this.

I'm concerned about their calculations too. I had a rocky start (~65% cGPA across 10 courses, lots of withdrawals), then transferred to a new school and took a year and a half out after one semester. I do have a 3.7/4.0 cGPA from degree granting institution and a 3.9/4.0 L2, but I hate to think how that bad start will affect my chances at non L2 schools.

I emailed and got a very generic email back with no individual answer but instead just information from their website on how they calculate things. 

Huh

    • A law degree is no guaranteed ticket to a "fancy" life. There a chance you could have even made more/as much¬†with your MA degrees. Not to mention another 3 years of lost income.¬†
    • I really think factors like this are incredibly dependent on the rest of your application. By itself, I don't think it would be that helpful. But if this factor was coupled with other compelling elements, I think it may be useful to draw attention to.
    • Don't live on campus if you can help it! It is so so so much more expensive than living with roommates near to campus. I'm pretty sure the only residence that a law student would be allowed to live in is the graduate student residence.¬† In my undergrad experience at U of T, I found that the cost of residence was about at least 1.5x the amount of rent on an off-campus accommodation. They truly gouge you, and honestly, it is nicer to live off campus.¬† I would highly suggest looking for apartments in the Annex, Dupont, or Kensington area!
    • Absolutely! Ive been on a journey that only five years ago I couldn't have even imagined. Academics were never in the cards for me, but I had the will to make it happen which only developed through growing older. I would never let my age deter me, especially this far along. Thanks for the kind words¬†
    • Hi! I was wondering if the UofT¬†residences (like woodsworth, Morrison Hall) are open to law students as well?¬†I just got admitted today and I am from Montreal,¬†so housing is a bit of a concern for me.
