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. :)

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well.
