Minimum LSAT needed for 3.8 GPA; LoR from HS teacher

Recommended Posts

My GPA currently (im in 3rd finishing a BComm at U of T) is 3.87 (3.8 OLSAS adjusted), im gonna take the lsat this year in October and was wondering what would be the absolute cutoff that could reasonably get me accepted? My ECs I would say are average.

 

Also I know osgoode requires 2 reference letters but I am wondering would it be okay to get a reference from my old high school teacher whom was a lawyer instead of a traditional professor.

No, a high school teacher is not appropriate as an academic reference.

 

Does the teacher have any experience with you after high school (i.e. during your BComm)? If not, then they're not appropriate as a non-academic reference either.

I don't think anyone cares if a lawyer (former lawyer?) thinks well of you.

 

You have a nice gpa. I'm sure your profs will be happy to write you references.

160 will have you in by January.

 

Agreed with everyone else, don't go with the HS teacher.

Osgoode let me send in three references! If you got some from your profs im sure you could send in one from your hs teacher just as an extra - providing he/she knows you well currently and can attest to your likeliness of succeeding in law school (more or less a character reference)

I had a 3.92 UofT cGPA and 3.88 OLSAS cgpa. I got a 158 on the lsat and got 3 LORs from professors at my university. I got into all 6 law schools I applied to (Osgoode, Western, UOttawa, Queens, UBC, Dalhousie).
