What are the minimum acceptance criteria for the Program?
The Canadian & American Dual J.D. Program's Admissions Committee considers seven criteria - Grade Point Average and University Program; Work Experience; Community Involvement; Personal Accomplishments; Career Objectives; Personal Considerations; and Law School Admissions Test Score.
Of these seven criteria, the Committee places greater weight on the applicants' Grade Point Average and Law School Admission Test Score.
Are there cut-offs with respect to LSAT and GPA scores?
There are no cut-offs for the Dual J.D. program with respect to these scores.
What are the average LSAT and GPA scores for the incoming class?
For 2016/2017, the incoming class had a median LSAT score of 155 and a median GPA of 3.12.
What is the latest date that an applicant can write the LSAT?
Dual JD Program: February is the latest date in which to write the LSAT in order to submit your complete application by the April 15th deadline.
Note: if you are also applying to the JD program, you must write the LSAT by December and your completed application must be submitted by the November 1 deadline.
Do you consider only the highest LSAT score achieved?
The Admissions Committee considers all the applicants' LSAT scores but we are required to report the highest LSAT score to the ABA.
What is considered with respect to GPA?
The Admissions Committee considers an applicant's entire academic history regardless of how a service calculates the cumulative GPA score. However, if the applicant scored significantly higher in the later years of his/her course of study, then this will also be considered by the Committee.
