A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats 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. OT posts will be deleted. Thank you!

Congratulations! :) Do you mind sharing your L2 and what category? I have similar stats and this gives me some hope!

Thank you! 😊

My L2 should be close to 4.0 and I applied in the regular category. 

Best of luck with your application!

Volunteered with a few different clubs throughout uni, took part in a couple volunteer initiatives post undergrad, and would say I have a fairly strong resume in terms of work experience

Is this your first time applying or second? And did you apply Access or general? :)

This is my second cycle applying, first to Western! Last year I applied to Queen's, Ottawa and Calgary and got waitlisted across the board.  

I applied General :)

Accepted on Wednesday April 8th.

CGPA 3.36 L2 is same at 3.4ish LSAT 163 

MA with good extracurriculars and job in a policy and legal team for the feds. References were really good and I think I nailed part 2 of pstatement. Hopefully this gives those with lower CGPA stats some hope. 

I have received offers from other schools but will probably be accepting. 

Good luck to those still waiting.

Accepted on Wednesday, April 8th.

cGPA is 3.99, not sure about my L2, LSAT 157

Fairly average ECs. I've worked as a research assistant for two years, and won two research assistant awards. I volunteered for a year with the John Howard Society, and for a short time with a Refugee Sponsorship program at my school.

Waiting on Osgoode, but will likely be accepting!

Goodluck to everyone :)

Offered Admission - showed up on Student Centre Friday April 17th, around noon. It hasn't showed up as an option on OLSAS yet, but I'm keeping an eye on it.

CGPA is about 3.1, L2 is 3.92, LSAT 159 (was my second attempt, taken Jan 2020; first attempt was 153).

I think my EC's and statement were good. I'm finishing up an MA program at the moment, and my references were profs who'd already helped me get into the MA program.

Still waiting to hear from Queen's, but will likely be accepting Western. 

Good luck to everyone still waiting :)

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
