Accepted (TRU) 2020

erinl2

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 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!

I have nearly identical LSAT and L20 GPA stats, and in the same situation with work and volunteer experience. Maybe/hopefully I’ll get an email today as well 😬😬😬

Good luck!! I hope you get one as well! 😊

Accepted yesterday!

L2 is around 4.1/4.33

LSAT: 153

Work in unrelated fields throughout my undergrad, not really any ecs, and presumably good references and personal statement as I wasn't expecting any acceptances until late in the cycle

I was under the impression that GPA and LSAT scores are looked at equally but based on the acceptances in this thread (high GPA and low LSAT score applicants) that does not appear to be the case. Does a high GPA supersede a high LSAT score? 

Edit: Or rather, does a high GPA/low LSAT score supersede a low GPA/high LSAT score?

GPA and LSAT are looked at equally. This means if your LSAT is a few points below, you can offset that by having a GPA that's a few points above. Then of course because TRU uses a holistic process, your extra curriculars, work experience, personal statement, and references are also weighed into the equation when evaluating your application and can make up for lower GPA/LSAT.

Indigenous applicant, not sure if that makes a difference! My deadline is April 12, but will be letting them know I’m declining so they can offer the spot to someone else. :)

    • Weird that Miller Thomson’s numbers aren’t on precedent yet. They did their hireback weeks ago (it was not good).
    • Waitlisted a few weeks ago.  LSAT 157, GPA 4.0, BC resident, was going to be declining since I have accepted close to home but before I even got chance to decline an email I got this morning said I had a status change so I logged into UNB online and under status change it says "at your request, for application has been cancelled, we do hope you will continue to consider unb in your future plans". I am wondering if this is actually their default message or not? Because I did not request for my application to be cancelled! If it is they have that worded very poorly.   
    • Hello, am I the only one thinking that if 1L Fall is 100% online then we should have reduced tuition fees? ...I feel like our non-use of campus should be reflected in this at least by some amount! 
    • I mean, basic research shows that McGill always takes their sweet time. I've made this rant before - people apply to McGill knowing that professors are personally reviewing every single application and considering every aspect, from grades, references, LSAT, CV and personal essay. The law fac has to follow deadlines for CEGEPers, mature students and regular applicants. All of this is done while simultaneously teaching, grading and doing research. Most profs don't have TAs doing it. Plus there is a pandemic. And McGill admin does suck. That's what happens with large research institutions - money is for research. Plus all the budget issues in QC.  
    • Agreed with this. If money is in your top 3 reasons for going to law school and you already make six figures, don’t go to law school and find fulfilment outside of your job.
