Chances? (L2 3.42, LSAT 155)

Recommended Posts

Would you be able to tell me what my chances are of getting into Dalhousie? If there's no chance whatsoever, I don't want to bother my references with filling everything out - I'll try again next year (better GPA + retaking LSAT).

 

cGPA: 3.09

L2: 3.42

L3: 3.25

B2: 3.41

B3: 3.25

 

Many thanks, everyone. :)

Are you a Maritime resident? And is that your GPA on a 4.3 scale? I have heard from an admissions officer (take it with a grain of salt) that Maritime residents require an index of 80+ (60% GPA on %, 40% LSAT on Percentile) in order to be admitted, and that non-residents need around an 85+. A 3.42 (on a 4.3 scale) is about 79%, and a 155 is about 65%. So your chances are not great - a 160+ would give you a much better chance though! And remember, people get accepted with lower stats all time time. The indexes I have given are, on my understanding, what guarantees acceptance.

I'm definitely not a resident.  My father lives there and I spend a great amount of time visiting (and one of the reasons I would like to go there). I'm not entirely sure if that's my grade on the 4.3 scale (I used the http://lsutil.azurewebsites.net/CGPA tool). But ultimately you would recommend I hold off on applying to Dalhousie this year to get a better LSAT/GPA? I have nothing against waiting a year. :)

wondering about my chances with a 3.8 and 157, am a Maritimer!

You have a way better chance than me - I hope you get in! Crossing my fingers for you. :)

That is 4.0 scale - convert to a 4.3 (where A is a 4.0 and A+ is a 4.3)

Is there a tool for this or do I have to do it manually?

I did a manual conversion. I'm not sure if they include spring/summer classes or not, so I did it for both.

On the 4.3 scale for spring/summer included: 3.56; for spring/summer excluded: 3.44.

Chances? 3.68 lsat 160? Thanks!!

I have a friend with similar stats who is in. However I suspect your chances depend largely on the competitiveness of your cohort.

 

 

Maritime Resident

 

3.7/4.3

157

I would say you're in with those stats as a Maritimer.

Someone was accepted this year with a 3.9 and 157 as a maritime resident. I would guess you will be in, but later in the cycle.

    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time 
    • Figured while you're waiting for an answer, I can jump in and answer a question as a Windsor resident, even though I won't be starting law until August.  Question 5: The Windsor bus system is I would say more reliable than other places. The busses usually run year-round, throughout all types of weather. The only times the busses usually don't run, are when the school is also closed. So in extreme cases basically!
    • Annex for ease of access. Village outskirts for price and comfort (albeit, don't cross through certain parks at night). Downtown core if you're made of money and like to hustle and bustle. St Claire west if you don't like the downtown hustle but want ease of access. Anywhere bloore west for the point above if you're made of money.
