I'm in a bit of a predicament here and feeling very uneasy after receiving my low LSAT score (155).

 

I know TRU focuses on L3 for GPA calculations but my L3 is marginally lower than my CGPA (3.31 vs 3.45ish) - I blame this on changing schools and moving to one with a ridiculous tough grading scale (SFU) - shitty excuse, maybe. 

 

So my question is, will TRU take the higher of the two, or will they simply look at the L3 and disregard my CGPA. 

 

Any help with this matter is seriously appreciated. Thanks!

From my understanding of the matter, they look at both but place a (much?) greater emphasis on L90/L3.

 

I was informed by a friend at TRU that they will be placing equal weight on the LSAT and GPA moving forward, and a more holistic approach in general (greater consideration for ECs). In the past, it was roughly 60/40 GPA.

By "moving forward" do you mean this cycle included? I really can't afford for them to focus on my GPA 60% and not be legitimately holistic!

Yes, this cycle included.

    •   If this is representative of your writing style, you should probably work on making it more readable (eg more pronouns and punctuation, fewer run-on sentences) before the writing sample, and certainly before law school starts.   If you're not responding well to your tutor, you can always change. But 9am isn't an unreasonably early start, and homework is a way to do better in the sessions you're paying for.
    • That was really hard to read. I'm pretty unsure of what is going on but if you don't like your tutor, just switch. Your not going to benefit much if you're not happy with his style of tutoring.  But honestly, just to be blunt, being able to be somewhere by 9am isn't something you should have to work on. 
    • Not to assume too much, but it sounds like you may be a mature student.  There is a club for that, and everyone I met was very helpful. I'd join that club and start there. 
    • Good advice, I’m a single sole support parent so as much as I’d like to join a club or team I doubt I’ll have the time.  I think asking around and making connections with upper years is probably the way I’ll go about it.  Thanks. 
    • The best mark I received in 1L was on an exam where I wrote my own summary start to finish.  I used other summaries exactly three times in 1L, to look up an answer during an exam that I didn't have in my own. On all three occasions, the answer wasn't in the other summaries either.
