Ecstatic to be the one starting this thread.

Just got off the phone call.

3.73 / 162 - strong personal narrative 

I talked about the IPC in my personal statement and more than happy to share it with someone who is interested in applying to Lakehead.

Congrats to all who got accepted! Does anyone happen to know if Lakehead calculates the whole 4 years undergrad GPA or L2/B2, etc..

To apply to Lakehead, you apply using OLSAS and they do the conversion of the cGPA for the Ontario schools to see. I don't think they use L2/B2 when looking at your grades but they'll look at your OLSAS cGPA and they'll have your transcripts as well. Lakehead is very holistic from what I know, so they focus more on what you've written in connection with their mandates.

Thank you for the insight.
