So I roughly calculated my Agpa last night, it was somewhere around 3.28, also I went to a US college where they don't have A+, the highest you can go is A.

My Jun LSAT is 167, retaking it again next Jun, will be applying next cycle, so I just wondering, if my LSAT score stays at 167, what's my chance of getting into UM?

Index score formula: (((LSAT - 120) / 60) x 50) + ((AGPA x 50) / 4.5)


Last years early admission cut-off was 75.648 (regular admission cut off was lower, if you contact admissions they'll give you that information)

Assuming levels stay about the same you're almost certainly in. WpgJD gave the formula, which means a 167 is worth 39.166666. Taking that away from last year's early admit cutoff needs an agpa of 3.28332 - even if you were wrong giving yourself a 3.28, you're in the ballpark so any drop gets you in.


Cutoffs can change, but Manitoba take highest LSAT, so you've got a good floor.
