  3. I'm not sure how the LSAT is very indicative of your academic capabilities. Of course there are exceptions but as other people mentioned, but GPA would be a better indication because evaluated within a 4 year period, it really shows the students work ethic. Moreover, some students do not test well but your classes would offer the student alternative ways/assignments to prove their academic capabilities, ie. research, essays, etc. A lot of people also do not have the resources to keep taking the LSAT or spend months just preparing for it as you mentioned. But the LSAT scores can be improved through enough time put into preparation but the amount of money that goes into that could be inaccessible for some. And like I mentioned, academic capabilities aren't just how well you can test. How is a test that you can take over and over (for those who are wealthy enough to afford it) a better indication than a gpa where you have one shot at each class and a given time frame to learn the material and prove your learning?
  4. I believe that my stats make me pretty competitive for early acceptance, around 91% gpa and 167 LSAT but ended up applying in the middle of November. Anyone have any experiences submitting your application fairly close to the deadline but still receiving an early acceptance?
  5. I just wanted to make sure I had a solid chance since I won't be applying to many law schools. I'm still finishing up my undergrad this year, does my final year gpa count for admissions?
  6. I'm currently finishing up my 3rd year and planning on taking the LSAT this September. One thing that caught my attention is that some schools like U of T frown upon less than full credit loads (less than 5 courses per term). The issue is that I took a lot of AP courses in high school which fulfilled a lot of my credit requirements. So, I was able to take less courses. In first year, I took 5 courses, then 4 courses. In second year, I took 4 courses, then 4 courses, then did 6 credits abroad in the summer. My third year, I'm also doing 5 courses then 4 courses. The problem is that after third year, I've pretty much met all my degree requirements and only need to take 21 more credits. (So, it would be 4 courses and 3) Is this a huge problem for U of T and do I need to take more (unnecessary) courses just to take the full credit load for fourth year?
