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!

General! I have a very diverse background btw...that probably played a factor. Unique story.

By the way! I submitted a late application. I submitted my application in January for Western law. So my LSAT score just goes to show personal statements do matter!

Accepted on Fed 12th by email about an hour ago!

cCGPA/L2/B2: 3.93 (I'm a third-year applicant)

LSAT: 162

I also don't know if this was just me because I'm a third year applicant or whether this is standard, but they emailed me first and said "This letter is being sent to you directly from our office (rather than posted on your Western Student Center) because it contains some conditions relating to your current year of study" and told me that I need to maintain an 80+ average cumulatively by the end of the year to keep my offer.

Just figured I'd mention that as a heads-up to any third years out there, or even to anyone who is waiting for an offer that might want to know about that. 

Good luck to all

Edit: Also got the Dean of Law Scholarship! Came as a separate email about an hour after.

I’ve been waiting MONTHS to wrote this post!!! My dream school just accepted me and sent me an email (at 3:14pm) and I'm accepted on the portal too.

LSAT 161

cGPA 3.81 L2 3.87

Doing my Master’s right now and have average everything else. I’m literally shaking as I write this because I can’t believe it’s my time finally. I’ve been checking the portal multiple times everyday for months and obviously this website. In January I felt kind of disappointed in my prospects when I saw people with similar stats as mine get in and my patience was running thin thinking it would not happen for me. But let me tell you that it can. Everything happens for the best possible reason and I’m so excited for what’s to come. WESTERN HERE I COME!!!!!!

I also got a similar note on my email and acceptance letter as a third year applicant. It seems like they only looked at third years now.

Accepted today (Feb 12) 

cGPA: 3.61 (as per OLSAS) 

L2: unsure because I went on exchange in 3rd year (note that western does factor exchange grades into their GPA calculations, but I'm not sure how they do so) 

LSAT: 160 (oct), 161(nov) 

Strong LORs from two of my undergraduate professors, good research/work experience & ECs, good PS (I think!) 

Hope this helps someone :) Best of luck to those still waiting! 

 

p.s. regarding my exchange grades, I went to England and I received grades within the 67-77 range.

I'm still waiting to hear back from other schools, but Western offered me a great scholarship — so I'm definitely thinking of accepting! Good luck to everyone still waiting on their apps :)

    • What even is a "good" lawyer? How can we deliberate over if "good" lawyers are born or made, if even within legal academia, the model of what a "good " lawyer is, is still actively being explored and contested. The answer truly depends on who you ask. 
    • Yeah, North America in 2021, what an awful place to be. Get some perspective for fuck’s sake. You remind me of the guys that work in construction and think safety should be treated as an afterthought. Have you ever considered  why you have the ability to express yourself so freely whereas elsewhere you wouldn’t? 
    • I don't know why I'm continuing to engage, but fuck it.  You were mocked (correctly) for making some very strange claims about genetics. I understand why you would take issue with that. No one likes to be mocked. But are non-lawyers being mocked here? I don't think so. I think it's just an objective assessment that lawyers do tend to have the qualities normally associated with intelligence.  I think that many lawyers are more intelligent than the average person. But that's not a value judgment. The particular kind of intelligence needed for law is valuable for practicing law effectively. But outside of being useful for practice, I accord it very little weight. I like and admire many people who aren't especially good communicators, and probably don't have the attention to detail for law. I know many lawyers who are very smart and excellent at lawyering, but who I do not particularly like or admire. Intelligence is just one thing. There are other qualities that are far more important. I care far more about a person's compassion, sense of humour, and self-awareness than whether they can write a persuasive brief. So when I say that law isn't a good fit for most, I don't mean it as smug or an insult. I just mean that law isn't a good fit for everyone. 
    • yo man relax. who hurt u? You might think we're insulting you, but your manner of speaking is very condescending. The fact that you posted and deleted comments (twice!) suggests that you know this, so stop pretending like everyone is 'taking a dump' on you. On topic: there's smart and not-so-smart people in every profession. In the case of law, medicine or PhD-level scientific academia, the floor is likely higher since you had to jump through some hoops to get there that are somewhat reliable indices of some intellectual capacity. Maybe everyone could theoretically be trained as a lawyer or doctor, but you'd probably have some pretty bad ones by the end.
    • You got there pretty early, then. I needed to collect a few STEM degrees and see how many of my peers ended up getting jobs where all they did was mix buffers and run assays that come in a box that are closer to following a basic recipe than developing an mRNA based vaccine. Fortunately, the inherent superiority of their biochem degrees and the fact that they had to learn electrochem material that they probably haven't thought about since halfway through undergrad continue to provide solace.
