I'm currently going into my fourth year of undergrad with a 3.98 cGPA (out of 4). I'm planning on taking the September LSAT and the average for my last few PTs (5 sectioned, timed with bubbling and in the morning) is 167 with 169 being my most recent. I'm planning to apply to McGill and broadly in Ontario with my top choice being McGill.
From what I understand, the general sentiment of this forum seems to be that ECs are not very important when it comes to law school applications. However, I noticed that a few weeks ago, Ryn put out a new admissions predictor stating that cGPA and LSAT only contributes 35%-60% of one's chances and that got me worried. Most of my extracurriculars are concentrated in my first two years and they are, in my opinion, not exceptional. After my second year, the bulk of my extracurriculars has been research which, without a scientific paper published, doesn't seem very impressive.
Am I worrying too much for nothing? Do extracurriculars actually matter a whole lot? I prefer not to start any this semester since it probably won't seem genuine and won't, in fact, be genuine. Any advice?
PS If I have too much identifying information, please let me know.
