Hey all,

I wanted to share my application stats and softs to see what others thought of my chances at UofC. I will be applying next cycle to start school in fall 2023. Any feedback is appreciated as UofC is my top choice. My application is as follows:

CGPA: 3.34

L2: 3.79

LSAT: 162

Softs - I finished my undergrad one year ago and have been working at a personal injury firm as an administrative assistant since then. I was a varsity athlete and have research experience in the health sciences. I will have one reference letter from the managing partner at my firm and the other from a professor from undergrad. 
 

Thanks for any feedback!

From what I know I wouldn't say you're a shoe-in, but maybe just under a shoe-in. I'd be surprised if you didn't get accepted, but UoC can also sometimes do some weird stuff/be hard to predict since they are holistic. If you did want to try to improve your application, I'd recommend another crack at the LSAT over some extra classes. A 164 or 165 would move you to shoe-in status in my opinion, but you're probably fine either way especially with the work experience/softs.

UofC definitely appreciates applicants with 2+ years of work experience. Your L2 and GPA are pretty solid. If you're applying under the regular category, I'm not sure reference letters will be accepted. For this year's cycle, they did not accept reference letters for first year applicants. Regardless of your profile, it's hard to tell if one will be in or not as they are holistic in the admission process. Improving your LSAT doesn't hurt but may not be necessary.

Thank you for the response! Ya I wish I had a little higher LSAT to make it more of a lock but I feel like I’m more likely to get in than not - especially if I’m gauging it off the folks who post on here. I’m applying to UofA and TRU as well. TRU is basically a lock but would love to be at an Alberta school.

I know… the funny thing is I was rlly happy with my lsat when I first got it back but now wishing it was a little higher. I don’t think I have the capacity to study for it again and take it again, especially because I have to work.

I have basically the same GPA and work experience with added volunteer experience and a 163 LSAT and I’m on waitlist, so hard to predict 😕
