  1. Figured it was time for an update. I finished my 5th year, will be officially graduating in a month (thank fuck) and will be moving to a new city for the summer. I opted to not apply for 2019 admission, however, I did apply to 3 masters programs and got into all 3 with money. Although, one school offered a significant more than all the others. Between my admission offer and the federal scholarship I was awarded total funding will be 54k. This is not a humble brag, I'm damn proud of what I earned and want to brag for a minute. As for my grades, since many of you, including myself, are rather obsessive over them: OLSAS 4.0 Scale Weight Grade Points Average Year 1 10 28.7 2.87 Year 2 10 31.2 3.12 Year 3 12 42.6 3.55 Summer 2017 5 19.8 3.96 Year 4 12 47.3 3.94 Summer 2018 4 15.9 3.98 Year 5 12 47.6 3.97 OLSAS cGPA 65 233.1 3.59 While I may not be going to law school, I am more than happy with where I ended up. Who knows, maybe I'll apply to law school in a few years.

  3. Why wouldn't you pursue an MBA and/or CFA designation? Might get you farther than a JD in the financial sector.
  4. Not at all, contact your university or any other desired one, pick a program and register for courses. I think some schools, at least the one I attend, gave me permission to take a full years worth of courses as a "special student" as I am not registered in any program. If you want more information please feel free to pm me
  5. Just because you graduated doesnt mean you cannot take more courses.
  6. Retaking a class(s) wont necessarily help your GPA. Law schools, at least those in Ontario, take every course you've taken into account. Meaning if you retake a class both will be included in your cGPA. As for your current chances, no one can tell you. Write the LSAT, and finish your degree, then come back with your final stats. For what its worth, don't ever aim to do your best, that's what your doing now. Aim to do better than your best. Goodluck in your next two years
  7. Covert your percentage average to the OLSAS scale, it'll help everyone give you better advice.
  8. What about all the other semesters?
  9. UBC isnt "pretty numbers based" its all numbers based. They take your GPA after drops and LSAT score, then run it through a formula that spits out a score. If your score is above a certain threshold you're in, if its below a certain threshold you're out. Granted, I'm sure there is a small margin for people in between the above thresholds that will likely be waitlisted. According to their website, the average applicant has an 83% average after drops and a 166 LSAT score. My advice to you, and I am sure you know this already, is to simply kill it. Start every class with the mentality that you have 100% and its on you to keep it that way. Additionally, you'll need to really kill the LSAT, more likely than not, at least a 172 (assuming the calculator on here is accurate). Best of luck,
  10. This is amazing! Are the personal statement questions confirmed for the upcoming cycle?
  11. Already did the math, I have a nice spreadsheet of everything. If I could find a way to upload it I would. As for the masters, thought about, and still am thinking about the idea of it. Although, the only ones I've come across that interest me are MPAs and MBAs. Both having joint programs with JDs at various schools, MBAs more so than MPAs. I don't however want to do a masters simply for the potential soft factor(s) it may have on law school application, I'd want more from it.
  12. Update: Finished my summer courses. 1. 4/4 2. 4/4 3. 4/4 4. 3.9/4 Average of 3.98/4 Raised my cGPA from a 3.46 to a 3.50 Opted to not rewrite the LSAT since I still haven't scored in the 160s. Will rewrite either November or January (hopefully). Taking a break from both school and LSAT material for a few weeks.
