    30 Points in Less than 2 Months?

    Going from a 138 to a 165 in six weeks, especially when the 138 was not completely blind, may be unprecedented. What did you score on each section?

    Is 35 too old to go to law school?

    I doubt you'll be the oldest in your class! I go to school with students in their 40s and 50s. I think most of them are part-time and working, though.

    Getting a bad grade in Fall 2018

    I did quite badly on a fourth year course and got a 2.3. It brought my L2 average down from about 3.57 to 3.53. Hardly anything to lose sleep over.

    Getting a bad grade in Fall 2018

    I came in thinking I'd be the exception to the rule and get nothing but A/A-. I'll now be rejoicing for every B+ I manage to pull off.

    Getting a bad grade in Fall 2018

    Anxiety and neurosis are great traits to have when used in a healthy and rational way. The key is to not flaunt your anxiety for others to see, because there's a chance your worst case scenario is their best case scenario. Sometimes it's nice to step back out of the university, or law school, or I'm sure law firm bubble and look at just how fortunate we are to be where were at. False confidence does indeed go a long way, though.

    Getting a bad grade in Fall 2018

    A B+ is not a bad grade. A B+ is an above average grade. A is an exceptional grade. It might not always seem that way, but if you get a B+ the majority of students in your class scored worse than you. Just keep that in mind if you ever want to complain about a B+ to your classmates.

    What is considered a good grade?

    When applying to jobs through OCI and such, do they just see our letter grade? It seems weird that a student with a 70 in a course has the same grade on paper as a student with a 75.

    Chances cGPA 3.55 LSAT 164 Access Student

    I feel confident you'll get into all of those. I had the same GPA, a slightly lower L2, and a 165 and I got into all but Windsor (where I didn't apply) quite early on.

    Ottawa IP Recruitment - 2019

    So did you have a "soft" deadline for interviews when you went through this recruit? And did some firms still call/email for interviews after that deadline? That deadline was today, and I'm wondering whether it's time to stop checking my email every five minutes for invites. Edit: And to anyone else, any word from SB?

    2 LSAT Scores

    162 is a strong LSAT, 3.99 is an unreal GPA. You'll be fine.

    When do references need to be submitted by? OLSAS

    One thing to consider is whether your references received the link so submit their letters. Two of my three did not, and I had to contact OLSAS to get the form reopened about a week before the due date.

    Chances? [cGPA 3.97, LSAT 174, PhD]

    Definitely look into schools that will drop your lowest marks, you'll want that GPA as close to a 4.0 as possible if you want a shot. Consider re-writing the LSAT as well, aim for at least a 180. Edit: This is sarcasm, you will get into every school in Canada and America.

    Advice [3.3/150]

    Yes. Your GPA+LSAT won't get you into any schools unless you're very lucky.
