Here to give the low LSAT scorers hope.

Accepted this morning (letter dated May 15) regular category. 

156 LSAT score (fourth and best LSAT), approx a 82% GPA (3.7 I would guess) B2. 

Quite a bit of volunteer experience, four and a half years work experience (just over half a year with the ORT as a dispute resolution facilitator, almost 4 years with Prosecutions as a legal assistant). THIRD YEAR applying - 3rd times the charm, lol. 

Very strong Sask connection, born and raised and currently living in Sask. USask is my first choice! 

I have accepted and paid the deposit already!

Do you mind me asking what exactly your cGPA and best 2 average was? Also, what were your softs? Do you have another option or are you OK with the Sasky winter? Lol.

My best 2 average is a 4.0/4.0, I’m a business major so it was fr just colouring in the lines for me LMAO. I applied to Sask as a backup to my backup a week before the deadline so it was really sloppy. I have a lot of softs, but reading over my PS right now, I didn’t mention any of them wth… The only soft that got recorded in my application was that I participated in an exchange program for a semester. Oh and I said a cringy one-liner on the part that asked me if I had a connection to the province.

I only applied to both the Alberta schools, TRU, and Sask. I only got into the latter two, and I think I’m only picking Sask just because the cost of living is so much lower than Kamloops. I did my exchange in Iceland so hopefully I’ll be better than okay! 😂😂
 

Where did you apply to for this cycle, and did you hear back from any yet?

You got into TRU?! 😩 so jealous. I I got waitlisted there in April, and am waiting, desperately.… my stats are a little lower than yours… It’s just the most beautiful place in the country and I figure I’ll make money as a lawyer to cover my extra living costs. Lol. I got waitlisted for Sask yesterday, but definitely my second choice. Congratulations! You have lots of options.

Good luck and congratulations to you too! I hope you get into the one you want. It's hard to decide between the two especially since I am not particularly pulled to one or the other. I want to go back to Alberta, and I think Sask is good because they have a larger alumni pool? I still have time to think about it, but I hope whatever choice I make, it's the right one. 😊

Just got accepted yesterday at 4 pm! Got the email I was placed on the waitlist (around the middle of this month) and saw the email last night! Applied in discretionary/access category. 

LSAT: 150

GPA: 86 average = 3.8/4.0 (OLSAS Scale)

No Sask connection

I'm surprised I got in! But I had fairly strong EC's with community evolvement and put a lot of work into my personal statement. 

Still thinking about the offer after hearing back from the rest of the schools.

I think TRU is better for BC and Alberta, Sask grads typically live in Sask from what I’ve heard from other lawyers

Were you taken off the waitlist or just directly accepted?

Congrats! It's weird because I have almost the same stats as you (higher B2 GPA) and got rejected... it's so strange how some of these schools work.

Did you get accepted to any other schools? I am surprised there are individuals with the same stats getting different results... maybe the EC's and personal statement make a big impact?

Thank you for your congratulations. The admission committee's process remains ever elusive, I guess. They must have found something they really liked about me!

Congratulations!! 
I am just considering the LSAT now. Do you recommend getting the admission before taking the test?

There's no way to gain admission to a Canadian school without it, unless you're Francophone and applying to McGill.

That aside, what on earth would anyone think would be the purpose of taking the "Law School Admission Test" after already having secured admission to a law school?
