My chance? 3.52 GPA (with drops) and 154/159 LSAT

Recommended Posts

I am a long time lurker on this forum, but this is my first post here. Have to say I found many useful information here and would like a second opinion on my chance of getting accepted.


Submitted my application to UNB with 3.52 GPA (186 credits in total) and 154/159 LSAT. I am going to received my doctorate degree in Cell Biology in a few weeks, and have B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from  a foreign institute. BTW, English is my second language and I have overcame various cultural, linguistic, and financial challenges to get to where I am now. I applied in both regular and discretionary categories.


Two academic reference from my graduate supervisors here, the non-academic one is from a senior member from my church. I assume all these letters should be pretty positive.


I checked "Accepted" threads from previous years, it seems my chance is decent but not great.

I think you have a solid chance at acceptance. Aside from your achievements and overcoming various barriers, which are very positive points, your GPA and LSAT put you at a good place IMO. I was accepted last year with a lower GPA and a 160 on the LSAT.

    • Why would you dry clean a cotton dress shirt? Pro-tip.  The newer non-iron shirts are great.     Unless ironing is your thing (not judging).      
    • A lot of newer dress shirts can be washed (some even say not to dry clean), so if you keep an eye on the tags when you’re buying them you’ll be okay  Good luck this summer! 
    • So I really wanted to complete the International Law Program at the Bader Castle next year; however, my very close cousin is getting married next year in the beginning of June. I cannot miss this wedding but I also really want to take part in the Bader program at the end of first year because in second year, I would want a summer job. For those who have done the Bader castle program before, would it be okay if I missed a few days of the program? I know it would put a bit of a dent in my wallet, but say I flew out for about 5 days to attend the program, would that be feasible?  Also, for those who have attended the Castle program in general, what are your thoughts on it? Is it worth it, how did you like it, what financial help is available etc.   
    • Depends on the shirt. I have some that wash well, others that need to be dry cleaned. Check the label. Assume they will need to be dry cleaned though.
