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 Feb 24th!! I honestly can't believe it. I checked uozone on a whim and it said admitted. Haven't received an email and olsas isn't updated yet either.

GPA: 3.68 as per OLSAS

LSAT: 151 (Jan 2019) , 156 (Aug 2020), 154 (Nov 2020), 157 (Jan 2021)

Clearly I struggled with the LSAT so I'm really surprised I got in. My ECs were okay in my opinion. Did some volunteering, worked part-time, went on exchange. I emphasized my interest in social justice and Aboriginal law in my ps and I talked about my financial hardship a little even though I didn't apply access. I believe I had strong reference letters from a prof and my manager at work.

Good luck to you all!

Accepted yesterday yay! Super excited after having been unsuccessful in 2020 and also a little surprised.  

cGPA: 3.4 

L2: 3.85

LSAT: 158 third attempt 

ECs & LORs: not super great– little bit of involvement in undergrad societies and some campaign work with the liberal party in my home province. I'm a first generation Canadian to refugee parents so I centered my personal statement around that and hoped for the best lol. 2 decent letters of recommendation both from undergrad professors. 

Will most likely be accepting :)

Admitted at noon today via Email and UOzone. Checked on OLSAS and it's there too. Very excited and relieved because I thought my GPA might have dragged me down.

CGPA: 3.48

L2: 3.53

B3: 3.66

LSAT: 161

ECs & LOR: I think pretty good, no clubs or student organizations but several Co-op jobs and part-time work in school. And a 6 month UN internship after graduating. I think my letters would be average to above average.

This is the first school to get back to me, still waiting on others. Don't lose hope, you all have it in you. Be patient and make yourself happy doing things you like and it will come to you. I hope my information helps and good luck.

Admitted last week, but had to take care of some personal stuff first. Here are my stats:

CGPA (OLSAS): 3.63

CGPA (University of Toronto): 3.74

L2: 3.77

B3: 3.77

LSAT: Taken 4 times, Canceled once, Best Score: 155

ECs & LOR: Don't know what to say here about the ExtraCurriculars but I made sure to be doing at least one Extracurricular activity, one volunteering position, and one occupation (employment of some kind) on a weekly basis at the same time and at least two of them if I could not manage three. For Letters of Recommendation, I relied on teachers who had tutored me in my specialty areas and I was careful to pick one from my Undergraduate School and one from my Masters School.

I also am currently taking that Masters at Oxford University at the moment, so I believe that that also factored into the application process on my end. Best of luck to the remaining applicants!

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

It's a dual degree! The JD is from UOttawa, but the MA is from NPSIA at Carleton. You do the MA in second year.

Just checked uOzone and saw that I was admitted!

cGPA: 3.78

LSAT: 166

uOttawa undergrad, lots of ECs. Unsure if I'll be accepting (was my first choice for a long time, but after getting some other acceptances beforehand I'm not sure if this is my best choice).

    • 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. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
