Chances? [B3=3.8, L2=3.4, LSAT=167]

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Could anyone weigh in on my chances for the 2018 admission cycle?

Softs: various T.A. positions, co-op work terms, three LoR (two academic), other misc.

I'm in my last semester of studies (accounting at the University of Ottawa). I know my B3 and LSAT are in line with UofT's median standard, but I'm worried the downward trend of my GPA would significantly affect my chances. I'm also considering retaking the LSAT for December, as I scored 158 in June and 167 in September but was PTing at 170-174 leading up to the test. Would it be worth it to retake a third time?

Any help is most appreciated!

U of T doesn't consider LOR's.

Your softs seem good, and B3 + LSAT seem to be in a good spot too. I'd say you're likely in. 

Thanks! That's reassuring to know as it means I'll be able to free up time for my last stretch of undergrad!

They do consider Personal Statements. Submit a strong one and agreed...you are likely in.

Hey guys! Maybe this is just my type A personality kicking in but I'm seriously considering retaking the LSAT for December.

Would testing in December cause the ad. com to hold back on evaluating my application until scores come in? If not, and assuming my application is competitive enough as is for December rolling admissions, would there be a chance that I would receive an offer before receiving my score?

    • I can ask my friends what they did. I've only ever lived with buddies in Ottawa. The Facebook accepted page would be a good place to start.
    • For the FC, the judges rank their candidates and the most senior judges get to pick from the pool of candidates first and select their top choice (or the next preferred candidates if their top choices have been selected). The SCC is the same idea with a slightly different process. I wouldn't panic, all the offers may not have gone out. 
    • Echoing what everyone has said so far. A master's degree is definitely not necessary for law school, but could be very beneficial. For example, for the 1L IP Recruit - Intellectual Property firms look favourably upon candidates with master's degree in STEM. I went straight to law school from undergrad, and I don't feel like I'm at a huge disadvantage or anything. I would just add that you can also pursue a joint JD/Master's degree program.
    • I think it has to do with timing (call day was literally yesterday and I’m sure wounds are still fresh) and just being a good sport. Of course ppl should be happy and proud of their accomplishments, but to openly brag about winning something so sought after, so soon after the recruit, is a bit much. And yes everyone will land a job eventually, but having empathy for others and taking other ppl’s feelings into consideration can go a long way
