What date does it say for when your applications were last evaluated? Mine says November 11th 😐

Nov. 20th for me. 🙃

Tbf I don't think the date on the portal really matters, it's just a time stamp for when all your application materials were recieved marking your application ready for review. From what I've seen it won't change again until you have your admissions decision. 🤷‍♀️

I see all your stats and raise you 3.93 cGPA and 162 LSAT, still under evaluation 🤣🤣🤣 Probably won’t be waiting to hear back from them, though, because I want to firm accept one of the offers I do have soon. 
 

Good luck to everyone!

right thing to do.

This is such a defeating process lol I definitely thought I would have heard back from at least one Ontario school by now

Same, I have decent stats, I've been accepted into both out of ontario i've applied to but heard nothing from ontario schools, maybe they're just slow?

I also have one acceptance from outside ontario, but ontario is really where I'd like to be for like 10000 other reasons so it's hard waiting. where did you apply? our stats are pretty similar, so here's to hoping!!

    • 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.
