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!

Accepted today! (February 19th, 2021. A day I will never forget :D)

cGPA: 3.52 (with a first year of 3.00)

L2: 3.87

LSAT: 162 (August 2020)

EC's: MA in progress, TA, school club exec, admissions committee for my program, and lifeguard

I am a first time poster/long time lurker, and one of my biggest regrets throughout my LSAT prep process was not contributing more to this community. Without looking at all of the activity on this forum and the constant chances threads I have seen Luckycharm comment on, I would of had no clue what is considered competitive for each school or how to study for the LSAT.  

My biggest regret looking back at this whole process was not writing the LSAT between 3rd and 4th year. I remember regretting this decision and wished I was receiving the news some of my friends were last December through April - that I was going to be attending law school. Hindsight is 20/20 though, and for some reason it took me completing applications to graduate programs to really realize where my true passion was. The thought of attending law school in the nation's capital has me extremely excited and crying of happiness at times. I guess all that is left to do now is to wait for word from Western and Queens.

I know this is corny, but to prospective students questioning if law school is for them, remember to "never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about" - Nelson Mandela. I thought of this quote frequently, and it powered me through an 8 week prep course of the LSAT trainer where I went from a 149 diagnostic to a 162. Keep going folks. You got this, and I will be virtually rooting for you.

CGPA: 3.46

Still waiting to hear back from Carleton about my admission to the MA/JD dual degree program.

Accepted this morning via email, and reflected in uOzone! 🎉 Super excited since this is my first acceptance! Will be accepting unless I get into Queen's!

cGPA: 3.61 | L2/B2: 3.74

LSAT: 163

Strong-ish EC's (Decorated varsity athlete, semi-regular community volunteering, Model UN) and strong-ish PS. LoRs I assume were kind of weak (asked a prof from two years ago and a random supervisor I volunteer with to provide letters, neither knew me particularly well).

 

Best of luck to everyone else!

Does Carleton have a JD program? I’ve never heard of it.

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well.
