Likelihood of getting in: 3.95 cGPA, 166 LSAT

Recommended Posts

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

    • I'd like to offer a different perspective on why you should go to Queen's, in addition to everything stated above. I have found that lawyers coming from Ontario schools have a surprisingly easier time finding jobs in Western Canada (sometimes, even easier than some graduates of Western Canadian schools). This appears to mirror a general trend in Canada where it's easier to move East to West, and much harder to move West to East. In my cohort, a handful of students secured jobs at big firms in Western provinces without having necessarily the most competitive grades. I do note, however, that many of these people were originally from out West (i.e., they were able to establish a connection). Even so, I also notice many Western firms respect Bay Street experience - that is, if you want to move out there one day in the future after working for some years here. Just a thought. Also, I'd like to qualify the above observation by noting these are just some observations I've noted over the years, and it may not hold necessarily  true in all cases.

    • Yeah I’ve heard 1L has a tendency to do that lol 
    • There is literally no point* in living in Vancouver unless you're going to stick around for the summers, so I would take that into consideration.            * - I guess you could get up to the city mountains a couple times as a law student with the odd trip to a bigger hill. In that case, there may be one point.
