  1. I am not sure how you could possible figure a 86% is a 4.0. A GPA is still an average -- you take your GPA from every individual course and average it together. Secondly even if GPA was not based on an average from every course a 4.0 GPA would still be a 90+ average. The conversion chart is as follows: 90+= 4.0 85-89= 3.9 80-84= 3.7 77-79=3.3 73-76= 3 Now lets assume your grades fell within a 20% range. A following sample of n=10 with an average of 86% could be 96 93 92 88 87 86 84 81 78 76 ((4.0 x 3)+(3.9 x 3)+ (3.7 x 2) + 3.3 + 3)/ 10= 3.74
  2. Chances - B2 GPA 3.4, LSAT 160

    I have to agree with @HandsomeSocialist. Given the fact you don't have a Sask connection its hard to say for certain, but I think you will probably get in. I don't know your situation, but I given that you are very close I actually wouldn't suggest you rewrite the LSAT. You are very close to getting in, if I would suggest doing anything it would be focusing on your grades a little more or taking a few easier courses to raise your B2 a few points.
  3. You should get in. It's not clear exactly how the school calculates the admission average (see 2017 Admission Statistics post) so its tough to say exactly where you fit in there. Your LSAT is above the typical average of 159. Even if your average is on the lower end, with your above average LSAT and strong Sask connection you should receive an offer.
  4. Transcript Question

    I would either: 1) call the admissions office and ask them directly or 2) send in the transcripts when submit your application It can't hurt to send in transcripts with your application and quite honestly given that applications are to be assessed on your best two years it doesn't make much sense to send in transcripts in December at all. If you do call the admissions office don't expect a direct answer, they like to be dodgy. At the end of the day you may just have to balance how much you want early admission against the cost of ordering your transcript.
  5. @sfitz If you actually score 160 you should be in. Of course until you write your LSAT there's no certainty, and I'd caution you that your average may be a few points higher your actual test score. That being said even if you score 155-160 you should be able to get in if you have a strong Sask connection (current U of S/ U of R student or Sask resident).
  6. Your chances are slim. A 150 puts you below the 50th percentile. If you want to go to law school rewrite you LSAT.
