About this service:
Each Canadian law school has its own unique method for selecting applicants. Schools vary significantly in how much weight they accord to different aspects of your application, from your GPA and LSAT score, to your work history and extracurricular activities, to your personal statement and references. Moreover, some schools will calculate your GPA differently than others, and many schools also offer joint J.D. programs and alternative admissions categories for mature, indigenous or Canadian Forces applicants. These varying admission criteria between schools can make it difficult to determine exactly where you stand.
Our Law School Admissions Assessment will assess your competitiveness for admission at the law school(s) of your choice by comparing your admission category scores from your Applicant Profile Assessment to the admission criteria and historical applicant data of your selected school(s).
This Assessment will include a detailed chart outlining which admission criteria you currently meet, which you need to work on, and how your scores compare to previously accepted applicants. This is a powerful tool to help you understand your current odds of being accepted at a given law school, and what areas you should focus on to improve your chances of being accepted to your top school.

How will I know which admission criteria I need to work on?
Your Law School Admissions Assessment will be colour-coded so you can quickly see which admission requirements you are meeting, and which you need to work on. These colours are shaded more or less intensely depending on your score so you can quickly see how much or little work is needed to improve you competitiveness in that admission criterion. Your Assessment will also include notes explaining how your score was determined.
