Well, I guess I will start the thread off. 

3.76 / 155 / Decent softs 

Not surprised at all, but their rejection e-mail was oddly nice? Best of luck to everyone else!

3.55/170

I applied with a 159 and didn't get the 170 to January, plus I didn't write the optional essay.

Bummed but at least there's a global pandemic to distract me.

Same boat as you, 171 and 3.53 GPA. Looks like UofT is a GPA heavy school.

Hopefully another school see's your potential.

 

Looks like i'll be heading west.

Thanks - I might head out west too, to UVic. I didn't get a chance to visit before the coronavirus shut everything down, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.

Rejected as expected. 

cGPA 3.1, L2 3.3

LSAT 152 

Indigenous applicant, applied mainly because I did a program with them in high school where they had Indigenous youth from across the country come and stay on campus and learn from a bunch of UofT Indigenous law students and professors and talked about addressing barriers pertaining to Indigenous peoples entering law. It was genuinely life changing to me as a lil 15 year old which I talked about in my option essay and PS to other schools as I had never even considered law school as something possible for me and only applied initially because i saw it as a free trip to visit Toronto. The program was ambitious but short lived and I think they only ran it 2 or 3 times before they ran out of funding for it and was hoping they maybe wanted to prove it was worth something and have a spokesperson or something but I definitely get that my numbers are far off the mark but eh was worth a shot

    • I honestly hope so, but I do believe they will just go back a semester to get 60 credits, which screws me over since my past semesters are terrible, and I was hoping to bring my L2 GPA up with this winter semester  
    • I'm sure this is true in some cases, but I hear this and wonder if the person is either lying to me or is just incapable of making good decisions. Would be more productive to say they couldn't get admitted in Canada but were still very interested in a legal career.
    • 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.
