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?

    • Logging out of your exam and staring at a blank screen in your room is a terrible feeling. In the before times, it was always nice to get done a hard exam and then look around to see the shocked looks on classmates faces. I guarantee that would have happened if your exam was in person. Don't sweat it. Ive been pleasantly surprised every time I thought I bombed an exam. 
    • Les notes sont courbées à UdeM en droit de sorte à ce que les chances que t'ailles 4/4.3 sont vraiment minimes. Par contre, le bac en droit est un bac considéré fort en termes de CRU donc c'est facile d'être admis/convoqué en entrevue avec beaucoup moins que 4/4.3. Juste pour te donner une idée, Droit à ulaval donne facilement plus que 31 de CRU(le minimum pour être considéré en médecine) si tu maintiens 3.55-3.7/4.3.
    • Thanks, Shankar, for the reassurance and quick response (and yep, it was Corporate with Nicholls). I'm definitely missing the in-person post-exam experience, so it's hard to gauge how other people might have done. There were a few questions I didn't even get to because I thought it'd be better to answer other questions quickly rather than try to dig for the provision he's looking for. 
    • I can't imagine it being that easy. I imagine a fair number of students would be eager to slash their tuition by transferring. 
    • Considering you're taking Corporate in 1L, I'm just assuming you go to Western.  If not, disregard everything I say.  Nicholls' exams are all long and hardly anyone finishes them.  It's true of Corporate, Securities, and probably anything else he teaches.  He's a phenomenal professor in every sense, but his exams are very long.   So yeah, don't worry about it.  Every year everyone comes out of that exam worried that they bombed it because there wasn't enough time to finish, but that's where the curve comes in.   I don't remember how much of the exam I actually completed, but it definitely wasn't near the whole thing (eg: my "essay" was a couple sentences long) and I did fine.  Take a breath, you'll very likely be fine.  You'd probably feel better if you were able to see that everyone else had the same experience as you, but that's just how it is this year.
