So my GPA is now 3.54 with drops and I got 169 on the December LSAT. Does anyone know when I should find out if i'm in or not? 

 

Second round of offers was early February last year, I wouldn't be too worried if I were you.

Sorry, 3.52 not 3.54. 

 

 

thats a 3.52 on manitoba's 4.5 scale? if so, your index score would be almost 80. given past accepted threads you should get in next round

Hm. Still waiting on that verification of December LSAT scores.

​With that, my index score should be good enough.

​I guess we'll wait and see!

Accepted (regular category)
LSAT: 174
GPA: 2.02 before drops, 2.8ish after (never got confirmation)
Index 77ish

I mainly want to post because when I was researching chances, I couldn't find a single instance of someone with such a low GPA being accepted to any law school.

Congratulations to everyone else!

Just my opinion, but I bet the reason that you can't find an instance is because generally people with that low of a GPA do not score in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

Ha! You have similar to my stats, awful gpa but my lsat was 169. Something this process has taught me is that there is ALWAYS a chance if you give it your all.

Accepted on the 13th of January.

 

LSAT: 151, 157

 

CGPA: 3.88/4.0

Did not try to convert it to the Manitoba scale. However, with drops I would have to guess that it would be close to a 4.3/4.5???

 

Will likely be declining the offer so, another spot should open up soon!
