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!

I'd also add that I got an email telling me to check the status of my application on the student portal.

Along those lines. It says "Offered Admission" with links to the offer letter and a reception event. 

Cheers

Acceptance letter today!

cGPA: 3.55

Have a pretty unique personal statement that probably helped a bunch. Was definitely shocked though, didn't think I'd hear back for months.

Okay so, wtff. Totally didn't expect a response at all, let alone so soon. Randomly checked OLSAS today and saw that an offer was made (I also received an email from Western @ around 5PM on Monday, but I didn't see it until now). 

cGPA: 3.96

LSAT: 153 (now you all know why I'm genuinely shocked). 

I've always been consistent in terms of grades; my semester averages only ever range from 3.90-3.98. I think my personal statement may of really helped, as well as my reference letters and ECs. I'm registered to take the LSAT again in the next few days because I didn't think I stood a chance at all this cycle. nevertheless, I'm very grateful :-)

Congrats! Would you say you had a particularly strong personal statement?

Thank you very much.

My personal statement was strong. I also had a 'non-standard' application: I am severely visually impaired, I moved around a fair bit growing up, I had a rough 1st year, and I am a first-generation university student.

B2 is irrelevant for Western, it is an L2 school.

My L2 and B2 I'm certain are almost the exact same - I only did well in my last year. It was a 3.15

    • Getting rejected with those stats doesn't make sense. Maybe not holistic enough? Anyway, off to a better school...hopefully a much better school.
    • Here is the link: https://law.udmercy.edu/admissions/admission-requirements/online-status.php
    • ^ What FingersCr0ssed said... but here is my take - very few students have a law related job after 1L. There is a 1L recruit where a limited number of firms hire students. This recruit is heavily focused on your 1L grades.  - UVIC has a co-op program, so UVIC students are somewhat more likely to find law related 1L summer jobs. Usually in a small firm or government office. Hiring for these jobs is generally more holistic than formal recruits. - otherwise you might secure a position with a small law firm, but this isn't a big deal. Try to find something interesting to do - whether that's work, volunteer, travel, or whatever interests you and will make you a more  well-rounded applicant in the future. Many people I went to school with needed and could afford a break and travelled after 1L. Others worked their pre-law jobs in order to save money. There is no wrong way to do the 1L summer, except doing nothing. - In 2L there is a formal recruit that many of your classmates will participate in it starts with On Campus Interviews (OCIs), so when you hear about OCIs this is related. These jobs typically lead to an articling position after 3L , but are not the only way to secure an articling position. You'll want good grades and interesting experience on your application. Having experience traveling, working for something pandemic related, etc. will give you more to talk about than a front desk position at a law firm.  Basically, the best thing you can do right now is something interesting and that you enjoy. Once you're in law school focus on getting good grades. If you can network with people working where you want to work do that, but know it will mostly be for information purposes and probably won't actually lead to a job..
    • Probably as long as the applicant says on the application that they've applied to other law schools, McGill will take that into consideration and might reject amazing stats applicant? IlMagnifico does say they've been already admitted to other school(s). 
    • Hi all, I submitted an application to UNB a while ago. I'm applying in the Regular Category so I am not submitting the Special Circumstances Document nor any Reference Letters.  When I check my application status, my required documents (Resume, Personal Statement, and Transcripts) say Received. However, my optional documents (Special Circumstances Document and Reference Letters) say Outstanding. I was just wondering if there is anything I have to do or submit to indicate that I will not be uploading the optional documents. This is because I do not want them to wait for the optional documents to begin assessing my file as I do not intend to upload the optional documents.  Alternatively, has anybody that has been accepted (without uploading the optional documents) had to do anything to indicate that they were not going to upload the optional documents. Thanks in advance.
