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?

    • One of the major determining factors, in answering that question, is what is the ratio of support staff to lawyers in the firm? If we assume for the sake of argument that it's 1:1, which could either amount to a personal assistant for each lawyer or else a shared assistant and some staff that serve the office generally, then a big part of the overhead attributed to supporting that lawyer is paying the other staff. Then the whole rest of the firm's overhead, attributed to that lawyer, is the difference between the lawyer's pay and the staffer's. Salary is a big part of overhead, but lawyers aren't the only people at a firm getting paid. They are just the only one's who imagine their billings are "theirs" in some rightful way. It always amuses me how often lawyers get caught up in worrying about whether they are being properly paid, to the point that they forget to account for how other people are paid.
    • $160 is simply a mathematical placeholder, for the user of the formula to replace with their own rate. 
    • You sure about that rate, it seems like a really low rate for a first year associate
    • Is this for non Bay St firms only or does this include Bay St firms?
    • you too can get into law school with an lsat in the 140's :)))  I was accepted back in February but haven't had a chance to post!  LSAT: 145 last year, then 147 in November CGPA: 3.5 B2: 3.8  I believe I had an intensely strong application and references aside from these stats, as last year I was waitlisted at Queen's and Windsor (I did not apply to Ryerson last cycle)
