Chances? (3.07 cGPA / 3.42 L2 / 167)

Recommended Posts

Its at the time where anxiety's getting to me, and I am wondering what "realistic" looks like. So here we go... be as honest as possible please! 

Applied access category. 

Worked full time through school, L2 are part time school., calculated L2 score with most recent 20 grades. I was expecting.my cGPA to be calculated higher or I likely wouldn't have applied. 

I've been clerking at a law firm for the last year. Strong references, and in my humble opinion, a strong personal statement. 

Thanks a bunch.

Sorry, i applied everywhere in Ontario 

No guarantee to any school in Ontario.

I suggest that you apply to UNB ASAP (Its application deadline is March 1st).

You’re telling me a 167 with those grades would get rejected at Windsor or Lakehead? Spare me.

Agreed - I think a 167 with a 3.07 (Access) stands a good shot at Windsor/Lakehead/Ryerson.

Hell, I was waitlisted at Western with a 2.95 cGPA/164 LSAT and I didn't apply access.

Got into TRU (I'm a BC resident so it was my preferred option). Pulled my Western application without waiting to see if I'd get in. This was back in 2017.

Applied to like 12-13 different schools. Was also wait listed at USask. Also pulled that application after I got into TRU.

I was wait listed by TRU initially but received an offer fairly quickly after.

My L2 was 3.4 and B2 was 3.6.

GPAs as low as mine are rare on this site. Pounced when I saw it.

You were waitlisted at Sask with a 3.6 B2 and 164 LSAT? Holy shit, my confidence in getting in just took a nosedive.

    • 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!
