How do 4th year grades factor in?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'll be applying to UofT this year and I'm currently in my 4th year of undergrad. I was wondering how much my 4th year grades matter in the admission decision or is this something they just look at if you've been accepted and to make sure you maintained a certain standard? Thanks!

I bet you may have receive an offer by the time your Fall 2020 grades are available.

That's good to hear, thanks! I'm obviously not planning on letting my Fall 2020 grades slip, but do you think there's any chance that these grades would make them reconsider an offer?

unless they give you a conditional offer.. you can slip, slide or fall..

 

By the way, I assumed your GPA and B3 etc are OLSAS converted basis. Are they?

Yes, I tried to convert them as best as I could... not entirely sure if I'm doing it right. I got to UBC so my grades are in a percentage/letter grade format.

After you get in your grades matter very little. I know people who let their grades slide very significantly. I was also told the same thing when I had received my offer and was in 4th year of undergrad.

Don't let your grades slide. You may have to provide an undergrad transcript in a few different scenarios in law school. It won't look good if it's obvious that you slacked off after receiving an offer.

Yes sorry to clarify, erinl2 is totally correct. What I mean is that grades do not matter for your offer after you receive it, but your undergrad transcript will be looked at for things like jobs and other opportunities.

Makes sense, thanks guys :)

Definitely won't be slacking off but I was just curious how/if they factored into admission - thanks for the input!

    • that's good to know! might really reconsider queens in my list. Do you happen to know windsor or dal or would I be better off making threads in those forums ?
    • Just a reminder that Queen's does not actually have a "mature" category. However, they do allow you to cite "age" and "life experience" as valid criteria under the "access" category. This may be a minor difference, but I think it shifts the onus onto you to explain how those factors are relevant to your application. Slightly less straightforward than the schools who have an actual "mature" category. In any case, Queen's Access medians (3.73, 160) are only slightly lower than the regular category (3.76, 161). As a result, even under Access, you're a bit below median - it would be a close call.  It would probably be worth actually calculating your B2 precisely, if you want a more accurate prediction.  As it stands, I concur with Luckycharm's prediction for regular category; for Access I would guess you are very close to 50/50. -GM
    • It's the name of the law school building, not the law school itself. Queen's does not have a named law school like UBC does with Allard, for instance.
    • Language in the article is so confusing. So I understand the law school building is/was Sir John A. MacDonald Hall, but has the law school itself ever actually been referred to as that? 
    • Hey guys! For those of you who have been accepted or working on your application now, would you guys be able to help me with the diversity question on the application? Im kinda stuck on this one as I cant really think of what to write about. Reading on some online suggestions, a lot seem to suggest that diversity is not simply race, ethnicity, sexuality, socio-economic status etc etc. Would anyone be able to send some help??? 😥
