Chances, 162 LSAT 3.42 cGPA, 3.62 L2

Recommended Posts

LSAT 162

cGPA 3.42

L2 3.62

 

Good letters of reference, one from Master's Prof and one from a lawyer at a law firm where I work.

 

Decent job experience, small business owner, good volunteering, fluent in couple languages, in my opinion had a well-written personal statement.

 

Did my MA at Western and did great.  

 

Did 0.5 years of a PhD at UofT. I only completed 2 courses there and then left the program because I wanted to change careers.  But my grades in those 2 courses were fine.

 

  I'm mostly worried because my cGPA is quite low, and the admissions predictor says I have a low chance of entry. Thoughts?

How long ago was your undergrad? My guess is the longer ago it was the better your chances. I might be wrong but the LSAT score isn't uncompetitive but it also doesn't stand out. Having left the PhD program might hurt a tiny bit.

 

Sounds like it's up to your personal statement in the end but I wouldn't be shocked if you didn't get in even with a pretty decent one.

My last undergraduate course was taken in 2009, and my last semester average was 87% (not sure what that is in OLSAS GPA).  I wonder why leaving a PhD program would hurt me? Obviously I was qualified enough to be admitted to the program, and I didn't get any low grades, just incompletes from when I left.  

 

Thanks for your response.

imo you'll get in. that's a pretty good lsat and your gpa isn't too bad, plus you have an MA. like i said in another thread i got in in may through the access category with a 159 lsat, 3.1 cgpa.

relatively similar stats to what I was accepted with, I would say you have a good shot. I was roughly 3.07/3.68L2/162 if i remember correctly

    • Travel to Sky Bar from four seasons by Bus   Four Seasons Hotel   The hotel is housed in a beautiful and modern 20 storeyed building located on Orchard Road. The hotel is considered to be a residential paradise within itself and is just minutes away from some of the best shopping centres, family attractions and the major financial district of Singapore.   The hotel is at a distance of about 22 kms from the Changi International Airport and takes upto one hour to cover this distance. The distance being quite huge the fare would make a hole in your pocket if you end up booking a cab. Why splurge on unnecessary things as you are starting your vacation here. I decided to cover this distance by Bus and booked my bus tickets from this website called redbus.sg . I was quite surprised as the bus arrived as per departure time and reached Four Seasons Hotel in time.   The hotel is just10 kms away from the center of the city which measn you are just steps away from the shopping and entertainment district of Orchard Road as well as the Botanical Gardens of Singapore.  There is a restaurant within this hotel known as the One Ninety Restaurant which is famous for its uniquesly decorated warm woods. The hotel is known to serve and specialise in international and singaporean specialities like laksa and wonton noodles. It is a 5 star hotel and a stay here cost me around 350 SGD. The hotel has about 255 guest rooms and a full serviced spa where you will be pampered like a kid. The hotel also has 2 indoor and 2 outdoor tennis courts and a modern business centre if you are planning to stay in this hotel while on a business trip.   The best way to reach Sky Bar KLCC was by Bus as all other means of transport were either full of traffic or proved to be costly. I boarded a bus from Orchard Road Bus Stop which is just 7 minutes away from the Four Seasons Hotel. The bus dropped me off at KLCC Bus Stop in Malaysia which  is just 10 minutes away from Sky Bar. The total duration of the journey was about 10 hours and i did not have to wait for long as there was a bus every 1 hour.   Sky Bar KLCC   Every evening the Sky Bar in KLCC Malaysia is beautifully eliminated with jaw dropping lights.  It is a glamorous cocktail lounge which is set on the 33rd floor of the Traders Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Sky Bar is considered to be one of the coolest venues when we speak of the nightlife of Kuala Lumpur. This place is recommended for its good location and pictursque views of the city. The bar is completely surrounded by Cabanas and a huge pool on one side. The bar area has some high stools and are in different colours. I found this quite pleasing for my eyes. While I was sitting and having my drink the panaromic view was simply impressive.  It made me feel on top of the world.

       
    • Solus is right and I'm not really sure that an 84 is that much better than an 80 anyway. 
    • Im so confused. The average gpa is 3.36 and lsat is 158. OP has basically no chance of not getting in...
    • I got in last year with worse stats 
    • I have nothing to add on the whole marriage name thing, but as far as social media goes, I would absolute recommend going by first and middle name, or some combination of not your real name. Otherwise, make sure everything is locked down as tight as can be to friends only.
