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

    • Not directly related to law school ranking, but a healthy reminded that the success of a school's graduates isn't necessarily a measure of school quality. NYC has elite high schools whose graduates overwhelmingly place at Ivy League (or equivalent) universities.  Signs that they're good schools right?  Hmm, not so much, according to the Brookings Institute:  https://www.brookings.edu/research/evidence-on-new-york-city-and-boston-exam-schools/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=es Their research suggests that students who are "just" admitted to those schools don't do any better than students who "just" miss the admissions cut-off (i.e., functionally identical students who differ only in the schools they attend).  In other words, where kids go to school has no impact on whether they attend ivy league schools, suggesting that the "quality" impact of the elite schools are overrated.  They found similar results for schools in Boston too.  If elite schools place better than non-elite schools, the data suggests its because they admit elite students, not that they're better schools.   Something to keep in mind while ranking law schools.
