Chances? 3.4 cGPA, 3.59 L2, 169 LSAT

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I haven't heard back from any schools yet, definitely getting a little anxious. Applied to UofT, Osgoode, UBC, Ottawa, and Queens. I've accepted that UofT is off the table, what are my chances are for Osgoode and UBC?

Also, is there a point in emailing schools and expressing your enthusiasm and interest in the law school? My pops believes it will be beneficial for my applications, even though UofT explicitly stated "There is no benefit from contacting us to indicate your desire to be admitted, since we assume everyone who applied would like to be admitted."

Thanks!

0 point in emailing schools to express your enthusiasm/interest. I think you should get into a few of the schools you listed by the end of this cycle.

If you want people to chance you for UBC including you UBC % GPA would probably be helpful!

    • If the policy position is in the same field, it would seem to be relevant experience and not just a "filler" position. I have no relative experience for this question, but would imagine the transfer from policy back to law would become more problematic the longer you held the policy position, but shouldn't be too problematic early on (and "I took an available position in my area, but am interested in moving back into law" is a decent sales pitch if you take a later job interview). For example, if you did the policy job for 1 year, then went to move back to a firm, your "lost time" is less as you've hopefully gotten the relevant exposure to the law, but aren't senior enough that there's an issue in learning to be an associate (ie. handling grunt work). It may even be beneficial experience as it adds a different prospective to the problems. However, 5 years of policy before moving back? Might be a different story, as you are more closely aligned with a 2-3yr associate in realm of associate tasks you are familiar with, but probably don't want to be treated like an intro associate task-wise (all speculating, depends entirely on both policy experience and the tasks your transfer back into). In short, you're not forever excluded from looking for openings while holding the policy job, so if it's of potential interest this may be a "FT is better than contract" conclusion. And who knows, maybe you love the policy job?
    • Nope no notification of a waitlist position over here
    • LSAT 165 cGPA (per olsas) 3.52 I'm also an international applicant with access considerations. I interviewed on monday and my OASIS was updated today to say that I am in the wait pool
    • Can you get on to any litigation files as part of the firm's family law practice? It sounds to me like building up a base of litigation experience - in whatever field - would be an asset to getting the kinds of jobs you want. Also, if the 'business law' area includes any employment law, there may be a potential path to human rights law through there.
    • Thank you so much. This is such a thorough and easy to understand response.
