Chances for 2018 entry [4.04]

Recommended Posts

cGPA 4.04/4.3

LSAT: not written yet

 

I know that's not much to go off of but I am a recent med school applicant turned law applicant.

I have extensive work and volunteer experience and was born in NB (currently NS resident).

I will be writing the LSAT in June which I believe is early enough for the 2018 entry application cycle. If I score above a 150 are my odds okay? I am obviously looking to score as high as possible so I am hoping for something more along the lines of 160-165.

averages are 3.8 and 158, but for Maritime residents the standards are a little lower, you should be guaranteed in with a 155+

a 152-153 will not PROBABLY get you in. That's a very low mark at ANY school? do you have any proof of people with that mark getting accepted?

I'm the proof. I go to UNB, got a 152. I know quite a few people at my school who are in that range, or lower (though they are typically transfer students). Nothing is impossible.

Transfers from where, out of curiosity?

I know 3 people who attend UNB who had either a 152 or 153 LSAT. HOWEVER, they had really good GPA's and were, from what I can tell, pretty smart individuals. UNB weights the GPA 60% and the LSAT 40% so it's possible without a doubt.

Two of them were transfers out of Australia, one out of the US. Most people transfer out of UNB, not in.

    • I'm not sure what wilful ignorance or carelessness you're talking about? I asked for information, both in the form of opinions and evidence. I shared mine, making no claims of qualifications or even a suggestion that it's something I feel strongly about, because it seems weird to start a thread asking for opinions without going first. 
    • Thank you for sharing, very nice of you! Have you heard anything back regarding a decision? 
    • https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority You don't need to be an expert to have a discussion or an opinion. It's even okay to have an opinion without being all that knowledgeable about it.  If you have a problem with the argument, engage with it — if it's as flawed as you appeal to authority makes it seem, it shouldn't be hard to knock it down. 
    • pretty sure it's the first one but can't confirm
    •  Ferae, you are failing to address the main issue here, which is a legitimate doubt about your expertise in or extensive knowledge of mental illness. Do you hold an MD, or an advanced degree in psychology or neuroscience or related field? Have you read and carefully considered a body of academic literature regarding the effects of various mental illnesses that may give rise to the need for accommodations? If the answer is no, I would caution you against making broad statements about what "seems likely" to you.  Without expert knowledge of how someone else's mind operates under law school exam settings, it's unjustified for you to assume that they have some advantage over you.  Your willful ignorance, and the carelessness with which you make wild conjectures thereupon, is kind of troubling.
