  1. @Dreamchaser's highest LSAT score is a 159, not a hypothetical 167. A 3.4/167 would be competitive at multiple Ontario schools.
  2. You should apply to schools like Manitoba, USask, TRU, and Ryerson. There's a common misconception on this forum that that UBC and UVic are viable alternatives for borderline Ontario applicants, but in most cases, they're the second and third-most difficult schools to get into in the country. Most matriculants at those schools have a 3.8+ GPA and 160+ LSAT.
  3. You shouldn't go to law school if your symptoms are this severe. You won't have the time to take all-day breaks during 1L, and while the workload is manageable, it never stops.
  4. UBC and UVic, the two BC schools that use drops, have the highest admissions standards in the country behind UofT.
  5. UBC's building is great, but everything around it is perpetually under construction.
  6. Same stats, same result next year. Your re-applicant status won't have any effect on your application.
  7. UBC is confirmed online for winter with a few exceptions.
  8. Those numbers tell a very different story from the one you described in your opening post: Something doesn't add up there, unless the 80s and 90s were outliers among mostly substandard grades.
  9. You can't keep spewing nonsensical opinions all the time and then resort to a pacifist guise when others rightly challenge those opinions.
  10. Yes, but as others have noted, you should apply to every school that won't look at your first year (UofA, UofC, TRU, Ryerson, UNB, Western, Queen's, Manitoba, USask, Dalhousie).
  11. Is it really that surprising? A lot of people take (and retake) the LSAT without being sufficiently prepared, and some people "study" by skimming a prep book or two and come here to vent afterwards. Private tutors can help, but as long as they get paid, it's no big loss to them if a few students fail to improve their scores.
  12. Then as difficult as it must be for you to hear, I'd recommend revisiting the LSAT. This is a telltale sign that you meshed a variety of different prep materials together instead of gradually building your fundamental skills. If you were scoring in the 145-155 range, you weren't ready to work with full tests, let alone take the real thing.
  13. I'm asking how you approached studying for the LSAT, not which courses and instructors you used. Oxford Prep is a relatively unconventional choice as far as LSAT prep materials are concerned. You may have taken the LSAT several times, but it's possible that you studied incorrectly and still have room to improve. If you do, it's likely still the path of least resistance to starting a legal career in Canada.
  14. Why would you give up on law school with a 3.86 B2 and a 159? Those are perfectly fine stats. Regardless, this is a good opportunity for you to stop basing your sense of self-worth on achieving one very specific outcome. It may not feel like it now, but this kind of experience will help you in the long run.
