Our JD admissions process is designed to identify exceptional students who will bring a broad and complex set of life experiences to the study of law. We strive to build a diverse and unique community of students who will forge lifelong friendships as they learn with and from each other.

It's a great place to stay current on admissions updates and student life, and we've even shared some examples of great personal statements.

We use three sources of information to assess your application: 

  • your Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) results,
  • your post-secondary records of academic achievement, and
  • your personal essays.  

The review process is holistic, which means that we look at all of these factors together.  Students tell us they are surprised at how much emphasis we place on the personal essays.  We rely on the essays for information that cannot be conveyed by numbers. Multiple readers assess each file to get a full sense of the unique strengths each applicant will bring to the first year class.

Our holistic admissions approach also means that if your undergraduate record (and graduate, if applicable) and LSAT score (or scores) are below our medians, you should still consider applying. Every year we accept candidates with scores that may appear to be less competitive but whose applications considered as a whole merit admission.

There are separate admissions categories for mature students and Aboriginal applicants
