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.

    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • 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!
