Rejected - Feb 8.

GPA - mid 2 range (applied access, mature student, completed 3-year degree 8 years ago, worked 40-hour weeks through school the first time around, plus was primary caregiver to a sibling with cerebral palsy, came back September 2021 to upgrade to 4-year hons spec and raise stats).

LSAT - 163

Volunteer work - around 5 years worth at this point, especially tough as a full-time worker (amazed at people working full-time + volunteering a bunch)

Other - paralegal license, obtained in 2017, maintained but stopped applying for jobs at start of 2020 (probably applied to 150 law clerk gigs, got 3 interviews in 3 years, moved on)

Was rejected June 15 last year, so they expedited my rejection this year.

Did you apply to Ottawa and Western?

Your chances are much higher there in mature category.

Good luck!

You'll get into better schools so I wouldn't worry. Windsor has rejected people that got into U of T in the past, so it can be a hit and miss there. With those stats and extracurriculars you will get offers.

Did you apply to TRU?

I think TRU is a better option than Windsor for BC applicants.

Apologies if this might come off as silly but where do the rejection letters sit?

Rejected yesterday around 5PM PST

LSAT - 156 (highest)

CGPA 3.01, I don't know last two, I have  bit of a complicated transcript

Fourth year applying and last. I worked full time throughout undergrad and have been out of school the past five years working full time as well. My stats definitely don't help but hoped for a holistic look at my background. Just having a pity party for myself today. After being rejected by so many schools year after year, it wears you down. Wishing everyone the best!

Sending you love and positivity as well! The process can be so draining but it’s so important to remember that the decisions of these schools don’t define you. You’ll be successful in whatever you choose to do. Best of luck!

It’s ok! I believe I was referred early February, not sure the exact date. I was previously waitlisted (no email, just happened to check portal and saw) and then yesterday I checked again and it said “not admitted”. A few hours later they sent me the rejection email.
