  1. Your L2 is killing you, unfortunately. Other posters with comparable cGPAs have received offers but L2/L3s have been much higher than yours. The door isn't entirely slammed shut, though... Great LSAT score so I wouldn't touch that. Just a matter of putting your best foot forward with the soft factors + statements.
  2. Should I retake the lsat?

    You should rewrite to expand your options. You could get a spot at UO + Windsor right now. If you work at it, you can put Queens and Western on the table.
  3. 150 + 3.2 cGPA will be out at most schools. Neither stat is competitive, even in a mature category. MBA/MA marks are great, but ultimately soft factors. Not to say they would receive zero offers but the odds are not in their favour. OP: 158 will get you into a few schools. Maybe not the ones you want, but offers nonetheless. No harm in rewriting.
  4. Take the time to rewrite. A marginally better score will get you into many more schools with your GPA.
  5. I'm going to encourage you to remove your statement from your post. If someone is willing to assist you, take that conversation to private messages. I'm not interested. Quick feedback though: there's a lot of fluff in your statement and I'm not buying the bible verse -> life defending the poor and needy -> energy law path you're selling.
  6. Chances 3.72 OLSAS GPA, 151 LSAT.

    It's possible. I would rewrite if I were you, though. If you can jump to 156-158 (I would think that's reasonable) you would be competitive at a few schools in Ontario.
  7. Good Undergraduate degree for Law?

    A professor at my school clerked at the SCC and did a B.Music. Ottawa IP recruit covets hard science backgrounds. I've met 1Ls that have done everything from engineering to nutritional sciences. Point being: It doesn't matter what you study. Work for good grades in whatever program you like + LSAT score and everything else will fall into place if you want to to go to law school after you're done your undergraduate degree.
  8. Even if you scored 157-159, a 3.8 L2 (make sure you're calculating correctly) would get you into a couple schools across Canada. Many schools also chip off X lowest credits. You'll be fine.
  9. Highs? Lows? Unease? Better? Bueller? Other than grappling with some theories in property, I'm feeling pretty good about school. I've met people I enjoy being around outside of class and my professors are awesome. Readings are perpetual but we deal with that the best we can.
  10. Going abroad first

    Your CGPA poses real problems. Not to say you can't get into law school, but it would probably be a school. Think about that. My thoughts at 23: Go explore for a year. You want to and the opportunity is there.
  11. AdComs are comprised of real people. Life happens. Ten years is a long time. Address this in your application, but know and explain why you are not who you were a decade ago. You allegedly have merit for admission based on your most recent academic performance. Emphasize that.
  12. autobiographical sketch + personal statement

    If I remember the sketch correctly, that's the section with the very low character limit. Write concisely. Some example statements: https://www.law.utoronto.ca/documents/JD/UofT_Law_Personal_Statements_Examples.pdf Google and the website's search function are your friends as far as the other Qs go.
  13. Let's do lunch.....NOT

    20 nonattendant minutes with a pot and stove top can make you enough quinoa for 4 days of lunch/dinner. A little seasoning, maybe some crushed nuts and cranberries or some beans and avocado = tasty, healthy, and filling meals. Add meat as you see fit.
  14. Fall 2018 chances [3.82, 4.0, 162]

    You would be accepted at nearly every school in Canada. Maybe not UT though. Prouda you, OP.
