Some schools, like U of A, will consider courses done after graduation through open studies. Maybe do an extra year?

You may have a chance to Manitoba.

Do you have any interesting volunteering/work/life experience? TRU is not out of the realm of possibilities if you can sell yourself well and have really excellent references!

Mature/discretionary or general applicant? I at least think if your diagnostic was 165 you should be able to get into the 170s, which would increase your chances

I got into Western and waitlisted (yes I know that's a soft rejection) at Osgoode with a 2.46 cGPA/2.9 L2 and a 170 LSAT as a mature applicant. Definitely gotta knock the LSAT out of the park, and have a compelling PS, but not impossible in mature/access.

No, you definitely still have a shot, especially if your diagnostic score was 165. If you get your real score to 170+ and apply broadly, you have a good shot at getting in somewhere.

    • I am currently a student in the UBC-Sciences Po Dual Degree program. I spent the first two years of my degree at Sciences Po Paris and am concluding my final two years at UBC. At the end, I will graduate with two BAs (one from each university).  Does anyone have experience with navigating law school applications with a dual bachelor's degree, especially if one of the institutions you studied at was foreign?  In particular, I anticipate that a major challenge would lie in the calculation of my GPA over the course of my studies given half of my grades will be in terms of French grading standards and the other half in terms of UBC's grading standards, if an overall calculation can even be made. I am also unsure as to how drops would be calculated in my case.  Explaining the dual degree program and why my transcripts look the way they do is probably going to be another obstacle seeing as the program is relatively small and unknown, but I anticipate that I would have the space to do this in my personal statement. I'm not sure if I'd need to provide any corroborating information besides that, however.  Thank you in advance for your help.
    • Does it matter when you submit your application? I'm in group B and submitted applications about an hour or two before the deadline. Haven't heard anything yet
    • Thanks for sharing! Best of luck with your application!
    • This is some great advice and information. I only know one person whose been to law school. Listening to the experiences of others is giving me a better idea of what I have just signed up for.   Thank you to everyone.  
    • https://canlii.ca/t/fwsm0   This is my favourite case. I’m sure I learned of it here  “Monkeys with typewriters” is one of the highlights on Canlii.    I forgot that it’s the footnotes that make it after reading through and wondering why I thought it was so funny.
