  1. Admission Advice Please on Application

    I'm also rewriting in October! Most schools (although you should double check) will accept LSAT scores up to January write, so you definitely have a few test dates for 2019 entry.
  2. I first posted this accidentally in the LSAT forum instead of this one... Sorry for the duplication! -- Hi! I wrote the July LSAT and wasn't happy with my score (160). It was my first write, so I'm registered to write the October (UK) test. I'm just wondering what score I'd need to have a good chance at Ottawa, Dal, Queens, and Western for 2019 entry. I know my GPA is not ideal. I did a difficult medical science undergrad and also had multiple serious health issues in year 2 and 3 (I doubt they would be enough for access category), which are now manageable (I've explained this in my PS). I have mediocre softs (in progress masters, executive positions on multiple societies for 2-3 years, other ECs that relate to health policy / law, good LORs). With all this considered, I'm thinking I'll need at least a 167 to compensate for my cGPA. Thoughts? Also, do schools take into account what kind of undergrad you did? My undergrad is a BSc Honours with thesis, which was mostly (now personally irrelevant) courses like physiology, pharmacology, immunology etc. . I have a 3.98 in all of my humanities / social sciences courses, but 4 particular science courses really took a toll on my cGPA. I'm not implying that schools take this as a huge factor, but I'm just curious if they consider it even minimally. Thanks all!
  3. Just realized I posted this in the wrong thread! Re-posting in Admissions! Sorry!
  4. I'm also actually looking at Queen's. My B2 is about a 3.8.
