Waitlisted today, April 15th.

OLSAS CGPA: 3.75

L2: 3.82

LSAT: 153, 160 (January 2020)

Applied Access.

Took an extra year + summer to finish my undergrad and did not always carry a full courseload due to family emergencies/ issues. I also took summer courses several times, (not sure if Western includes these in CGPA calculations). I tried to explain this as best as possible in my personal statement, but I'm not sure if any of this affected the adcom's decision. Still optimistic though! Best of luck to all!

Just got waitlisted today. Glad to see this as I thought Western's process had finished April 1st. I also went to Western for undergrad and live near London. Curious of what the waitlist conversion rate would be.

Okay, folks, I think you all know what should and shouldn't be posted in the Accepted/Waitlist/Rejected threads. Several posts are being deleted. Take the extraneous discussion to another thread or to PM.

    • Facebook groups like Ryerson or U of T Off Campus housing are definitely your best bet. Most students moving back home during the summer months sublet their apartments downtown for the summer so you can usually get a pretty good deal (especially currently). 
    • There have been instances of splitters like this getting into law schools in Ontario, yes, but keep in mind that they'll see that you took the better part of a decade to finish your degree and likely hold that against you. They already prefer full-time candidates over part-time, because they want to know that you can handle the full-time nature of law school. This example is an even more extreme case than even a part-time student.  You can explain yourself in your personal statement, it might help your case because it'll give more context to your situation. But that said, law school is anywhere from double to triple the tuition that undergrad is, and if you needed to work full-time to support yourself in undergrad, then it's not a foregone assumption to make that you definitely will need to work full-time in law school as well - which means that you won't be able to keep up with the demands of law school.  Applying for financial aid is also an option, so that you won't have to work as much and can focus on your studies - but given your GPA, it's not likely that you'll get anything. They'd probably much rather give scholarships and bursaries to a student with a higher GPA because they'll be seen as a more reliable investment of their funds.  All this being said, depending on where you apply it's likely still not impossible to get in. Work experience is highly valued with adcomms, so you should focus on trying for holistic schools as much as you can.  If you do manage to get in - that's amazing! In that case, I advise that you do whatever you can to secure OSAP, a PSLOC, anything you can to make sure your finances are taken care of - you need to dedicate as much time as you can to law school, because it's a whole other beast than undergrad.  Best of luck.
    • Ohhhh I see! That really helps clarify things, thank you so much!     
    • Check out the Woodward residence at UT. Very popular move for summer students. 
    • Great point. I did reference my stats in the email but I actually got a response from an admissions recruiter - I guess it wasn’t directly from someone on the adcom.
