Accepted 2021

erinl2

As we have done in previous cycles, we ask that you keep Accepted threads clear of extraneous discussion.

Please list your cgpa, L2, B3, index score, etc.,  LSAT score, and how you were notified.  Please keep questions to asking about these particular details if they are not found in the post itself. Other posts will be deleted so as to keep these threads useful and easy to navigate.

Thank you and good luck to all!

Just received my acceptance letter today:

Average approx. 86/87

LSAT 168 (Nov 2019)

Very Strong Saskatchewan Connection

Unconditional offer, despite being in 3rd year undergrad.

Congrats to all who got in and keep trying for those who didn't this time.

Most Likely will be declining because I got into UBC and want to go out there.

Hello! I hope I am replying to you correctly. I received an email some time last night that told me a decision had been made and to log into my account to check my decision letter.

My stats are unconventional but I did qualify as a regular applicant. 166 LSAT and a completed three year program at an accredited institution which transferred to a university. My GPA in that program was 3.7. I am in my late 20s with some relevant work experience. No Saskatchewan connection but from a province/territory without a law school.

I hope that answers your question!! Let me know if I missed any important information!

Congratulations! Just out of curiosity, was your application status still marked as “action required”?

Accepted this morning! Was emailed that a decision had been made and the letter was on my application portal. I have had an "Action Required" flag on my account since I applied in Nov, but was told by admissions to ignore it.

163 LSAT, ~81% B2, very strong Sask connection.

Accepted the offer. Good luck to everyone waiting & congratulations to those who have been admitted!

I see a pattern of high LSAT scores and it's scaring the crap out of me. 😅 I'm hoping the next waves' stats are a little less terrifying lol. Congrats to you all! 

Edit: just realized I'm not sure if this kind of comment is allowed since I didn't ask any questions, so mods are welcome to delete it if not!

Accepted! 

Got an email around 1am stating that a decision had been made. Applied November 1,2020 - had all documents in right away and file was complete from at least December. I’ll be declining as I’ve been accepted to my top choice! Nonetheless, still humbled to be accepted by such a great school. 

CGPA: 3.92/4.00

B2: 3.98

L2: 3.98

LSAT: 160 (only write) 

Sask connection: one of my siblings is a current student there although we are both from Alberta.

Just got an unconditional acceptance this evening!

L2/B2 = 3.8/4.0

LSAT (One write) = 162 (84th percentile)

Sask Connection = Born here, went to school here my entire life, family all lives here, uncle did same degree as I did, parents went to USask. Connection could only be stronger if I had family as faculty or legal practitioner.

Will be accepting!

Good luck to everyone else!

Admitted this evening!

B2: 3.64/4.0 or 3.68/4.3 (not sure how it converts to a percentage).

LSAT: 166

Sask connection: born here, moved away when I was fairly young.

Given the slowness with which the USask admissions committee was moving I was giving up hope I would hear from them before the March 31st deposit deadline for the Alberta schools, and as a result I've spent a lot of time researching those schools to figure out which one is best for me. But now that USask has admitted me I'm definitely gonna give them strong consideration! I've always wanted to come back to Saskatchewan.

I'm gonna have to make my decision quickly, though. Does anyone else find it odd that there's no way to pay the deposit online? Looks like you have to physically mail it to them in time for it to arrive by the 31st.

EDIT: Also, am I the only doofus who can't figure out how to access the U of S email?

Accepted at 2:41am

LSAT 164 (only write) 

B2 3.6-3.8 (no idea how they calculated or didn't my UK grades) 

100% Saskie. Born, raised, and live here. All my education is from other provinces but I've only ever stayed and worked in SK. 

 

Accepting so I don't have to sell my condo. See some of y'all in Sept!

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but I've been browsing it a lot lately during the 2021 cycle.

I got an offer today with a 3.3 GPA and 160 LSAT which is close to last years median.

I just wanted to give some hope to people since the stats are so high on these posts right now.

As a caveat I would say that I have subjectively somewhat strong ECs with volunteer experience and a coop placement. As well I grew up in Sask and did my undergrad here.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
