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, R-score, French test, 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!

ECs: probably average (moot, student leader, research, government work)

LOR: only knew them for one course.

I am also a French minor.

Will be accepting! Good luck to everyone!

I submitted the most last minute a person could submit lol. I submitted my application in October I think and submitted supporting documents on November 7th (the day before the last day you could submit). Hopefully more people post that they were admitted because I'm questioning if I read the email right lol

Ah okay, so I'm assuming the date of submission doesn't really matter. Haha your stats are stellar so no need to doubt yourself! :)

Was also admitted yesterday (applied pretty much at the deadline). I was admitted last year (decided to work for a year instead of attending zoom law school) so this did not come as a surprise, but it is still quite nice to have the re-admission confirmed!

GPA: 3.95 (From McGill)

LSAT: 173

Pretty strong softs, personal statement, and letters of recommendation and fully bilingual.

They also included in the email that I would receive at least 2k in scholarship.

I don't think I will accept.

I am also a re-admit and received my letter yesterday. I deferred last year for a variety of reasons. 

Mature student, out of school for 11 years, university & graduate degree in the US, worked overseas the past decade. Did not have any interviews (neither the one they said they might do with mature students nor the French one).

GPA: 3.89, no LSAT, fluent in English & French (neither my native). One LoR is from a professor from graduate school with whom I've stayed in touch over the years and had lots of exchanges academically/professionally, another from a previous supervisor who has been a mentor to me.

Hoping nothing will derail my plans again this year and very much looking forward to starting in Fall 2021!

Christmas came early for me!! I cannot believe that I made it in the December round. I am such a keener I paid the 400$ deposit before my letter was available on Minerva LOL!

Stats:

Mature (Interesting non-legal work experience + Masters Degree)

GPA: ~B+

LSAT: 171

In case it wasn't clear, I will be accepting 😄 Can't wait to meet you all!

Can I ask what your ECs and other stuff were like? Congrats on your acceptance!

Thanks! I had some interesting ECs (wrote a play, exec of a few clubs, student mentor). I’ve also got quite a bit of work experience in both the private and public sector. I think my PS was rather strong, which I think made up for my slightly lower CGPA! Good luck to you 😄

I’m a bit late (was accepted a couple of weeks ago) 

GPA: 85-86% (3.79 OLSAS scale) 

LSAT: 171 

References: 2 academic 

EC: Mostly model un, a couple of club positions, research, and I’ve worked a handful of jobs over uni 

Personal Statement: I wrote mine completely in English

I did the French interview, I thought I didn’t do that well but I answered all the questions in French. I was accepted with French condition. I believe I’ll be accepting but I’m not 100% sure yet! 

Absolute best of luck to everyone waiting!

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
