What is my likelihood of getting in with a 3.95 cGPA, 166 LSAT? 

Taking LSAT again in December (next week)

I generally feel the same way about this sort of thread as those who've responded here, but a 166 LSAT isn't exceptional by U of T standards. I remember years ago, U of T used to publicize having a soft minimum for the LSAT, and I think it was around a 165 (note: I could be misremembering), so I can see why someone would be anxious with a 166. They're wrong to be, but it's not completely asinine or trolly to feel that way. I support you, anxious person.

Okay, seriously, none the responses were appropriate so I've deleted them. I was about to type what Yogurt Baron said: that a 166 is below median for U of T and it makes sense to want to ask what your chances are given that score.

 

To potential posters in this thread: if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it. Don't take your own anxiety and insecurities out on someone who is asking a legitimate question.

 

To OP: You have a good shot. Your GPA is high but U of T's median for LSAT is 168. So you have a good chance of admission but it's not set in stone. Good luck.

Yeah, I mean, "MY STATS ARE IMPLAUSIBLY PERFECT AND I DON'T THINK I CAN GET IN, EVEN I WITH MY NEAR-PERFECT STATS AM A FAILURE, SO YOU WITH WORSE STATS, YOU'RE AN EVEN BIGGER FAILURE" is one of the most time-tested, frequently deployed, and aggravating ways to troll on this board. When someone pulls that stunt, it makes me angry. So I understand why some people responded unkindly. But

(a) this isn't that. This is demonstrably not that. The OP has legitimate concerns and is not trying to make other people feel bad.
(b) high achievers tend to struggle with perfectionism and anxiety. Why not - and God knows I don't always achieve this myself - try to be kind to people who are struggling?

It depends on some behind the curtain magic, but I think you will get in.

 

Well U of T does have a very high LSAT level (I think more of those students than you think are splitters who are also relying on ECs) , the GPA here is so high athat combined with a near average entrance LSAT I think this person can expect to get in
