  1. What are my chances?

    Apply broadly, and I'd recommend rewriting the LSAT for a 160+. You should also calculate your L2 for Queens/Western. Overall, I'd say there's a fair chance of being accepted somewhere.
  2. Question regarding Co-Signer (for PSLOC)

    I'm in a similar boat, I think their eligibility will depend on how much existing debt they have, and how much they've got in assets
  3. Study the LSAT hard, if you're scoring 170s on the PTs I think you could probably go high 160s at least. What you need to do is calculate your Manitoba AGPA and index score. By looking at your stats you likely had one especially bad year or so. Manitoba drops the lowest 25% of your grades for it's AGPA. You might have a shot elsewhere if you can keep your scores above 170, but I think Manitoba is going to be your best chance.
  4. Cooley, but it's in Michigan. I don't think reputable schools anywhere start in January?
  5. PSLOC with a cosigner

    I can't qualify without a cosigner unfortunately
  6. All the topics on this forum seem to be focused on PSLOCs without cosigners. I'm wondering if anyone here had their PSLOC cosigned and how that worked out. Who was your cosigner? Were there any problems? etc.
  7. Accepted to Lakehead 2018

    Hello! Yes, I was put on the waitlist a couple of months ago and they emailed me about it. I recommend calling the admissions office in your situation though.
  8. Accepted to Lakehead 2018

    Accepted (from the waitlist)! 3.03/3.15 L2 166 LSAT Born and raised in Northern Ontario
  9. I also got the email, very misleading. Why was it sent out? I checked my status and I'm still waitlisted. But I think I'm going to call them tomorrow anyway and ask what's up.
  10. Lakehead Waitlist 2018

    The waitlist here seems very mysterious, not a whole lot of people have posted about it. What are your stats?
  11. Lakehead Waitlist 2018

    Waitlisted March 7th 3.03 cGPA and 166 LSAT. Born and raised in Northern Ontario, I don't know how much of an impact that's going to have.
  12. So your AGPA is 2.54, and that's without your bottom 25% of classes yes? Manitoba law has drops. Even so, I think if you can score well on the LSAT you should be able to squeeze in, since you are a mature applicant
  13. Where did you do your undergraduate degree? Are these numbers calculated on the OLSAS conversion chart? If I were you I'd be going for U of M. If your diagnostic score is 155 I think you'll be able to score in the 160s on test day, 155 is a pretty good diagnostic. For Manitoba you need to recalculate your cGPA into an "AGPA" by converting all grades to their specific grade-point system and dropping the bottom 25% of your marks. Since Manitoba is an index school you'll be able to find out your chances in their general category quite easily, or find out the LSAT score you'd need for early admission. I know they also have special consideration, but that's a process I know nothing about. At this point, I'd say Manitoba is your best bet.
  14. June 2017 LSAT Release Date

    We've gone gray, they're coming today.
  15. UBC also drops your bottom 4 classes, so that's the number you'd need to calculate. Then, use that GPA to calculate your index score and compare that number to accepted/rejected threads to estimate your chances. For example, my cGPA is ~76.97 with drops (~75% without!, I punch that into the UBC predictor at http://lsutil.azurewebsites.net/UBC/Predict and I play around with the LSAT scores to see what I'd need: 169: 90.77, definitely out. 170: 90.97, still very low. Maybe I could squeak into the discretionary category but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Probably out. 171: 91.17, That's tricky, I've heard that 91.2 is the cutoff. I'd probably get on the waitlist? 172: 91.37, This is where I'd start feeling a little comfortable, there were some people admitted late in the process with 91.3. 173: 91.57, Unless 18/19 is a lot more competitive that this cycle, I'd expect to get in with a 91.57 Once that number goes over 92, I'd think it would be an auto-admit which occurs (for me) at 175. Now all I have to do is score 175 on the LSAT
