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!

Congrats!! What were your EC's like?

Thanks! I created a blog about mental health, was on an anti-sexual violence group where I presented to student leaders about consent, and was on my student union’s mental health committee.

Mature is just an altogether different category.

It sure seems that way! Still surprised though as I lot of folks told me my stats weren't competitive and that applying as a mature / special consideration applicant wouldn't be enough to save me.

It’s basically a black box. I was in at multiple schools with a 2.5/171. Congratulations on your acceptance!

My legs are weak right now. Checked on a whim just now... wasn't in yesterday, but am in today!

 

cGPA: 2.93, b2/l2: are both like 3.0something

LSAT: 168 (July 2020)

Access/Mature applicant. I think I had some unique ECs and glowing LoRs from people who could really speak for me. This is my first acceptance... didn't think I'd hear back until at least April!

    • Nah, don't think there was a round this week (although some people have been moved in queue)? Maybe some movement next week, stay strong kids!
    • Thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to write such a detailed message. I really really appreciate it.  Congrats on the opportunity and congrats on getting into law school! Sounds like you had quite the journey. You've given me some things to think about for sure, if I do happen to be unsuccessful this application round I definitely think I'll need to take a break and go out into the world for a bit.  It just sucks because I feel like I have a strong GPA and a borderline LSAT- I have a few friends who were in the same boat but got in last year at the U of A. I just want an acceptance somewhere haha.   
    • I think I'm just still reeling from the craziness that is 8 am on call day, but if a firm offers you an 8/9am Monday interview spot and you give them a mid-day Monday spot instead, does this hurt your chances with them at all or is it not a big deal?
    • No idea - I’m on for next month, I deferred from this month. Let us know when you get it, that would be very helpful to know!
    • Well this thread devolved quite predictably. I thank everyone for their responses and will write my PS with a focus on my political experiences.
