Chances? 3.68 cGPA/L2 3.95/ LSAT 161

Recommended Posts

All of you responding members have been too helpful on this forum, and since we are approaching March and I have been in Queue since November, I need some reality checks.

 

In addition to the factors mentioned in the title, here are the other elements of my application:

M.A in Politics of Law

Strong Personal Statement and LoRs (1 academic, 1 employer, 1 academic)

Above Average Work Experience

Filled out Part B (Diversity)

Age: 22 (don't know the relevance of it, but apparently its a disadvantage)

 

Thank you for your feedback

I think your chances are decent. That said, why is your age a disadvantage? I'm the same age and got in in December.

I don't know how you are always first to comment on everyone's posts, but hats off to you for it!

If my chances are still decent, it means my nerves will continue to be wracking until mid-March probably.

and the age thing I have been told by a couple of people that in itself is not an issue, but, by the virtue of being older (26ish) the candidate simply has had more time to do more things, thus enhancing their resume and character.

Your stats may permit UBC/UT

Assuming OP's B3 is somewhere in-between their L2 and cGPA i really doubt he/she is getting into UofT with a 161

that is my own understanding (B3= 3.82).

However, my Oz status changed to "invited for interview". So we will see how that goes.

Good luck on your interview. If you haven't seen it, there is a thread by another member of this forum that went through the Oz interview so that may be of help to you.

Later in the cycle admission is most definitely a possibility. 161 is not an unprecedented LSAT score among UT students.

    • Hello! I really appreciate you sharing your experience! I just recently got into queue and I just wanted to ask if you remember your timeline of acceptance. Of course it varies but I am just curious as to when I should expect to hear back. Thanks!
    • Went into queue on Jan 19th! LSAT: 154, 156 cGPA: 3.88 (with fall grades) L2: 3.87 (Not with fall grades) Happy to see some sort of movement on my application although I am prepared to be waiting for a LONG time.  Good Luck to everyone else in queue!
    • I got a call from admissions, no email yet.
    • I'm not the person you asked, but I had a 2.95 cGPA from UBC (Arts), L2 3.4 and B2 3.6. I had a 164 LSAT. I got into TRU after initially being waitlisted for a few weeks.  I was never told what worked in my favour, but I had a Film Studies degree, work experience in photography, video production, and marketing, and a lot of volunteer experience. I've heard TRU looks at your L3, with emphasis on your L2. If you can swing a 160+ you should be good to go.
    • I had the OP's stats almost exactly (except that I had a 2.89 CGPA).  Back then, I applied at every English-language law school in the country that existed. In the 2012 cycle, I was accepted at UVic, the University of Alberta, the University of Saskatchewan, UNB and Windsor.  I ended up being waitlisted at Ottawa and at Western.  I was rejected everywhere else.  I should note that I generally applied as an access/discretionary candidate. I had volunteered at a food bank, done independent research in undergrad, helped with other pro bono literature research, and held a bunch of other extracurriculars. Much more importantly (in my mind and likely in the minds of the various admissions committees), I suffered and suffer from cystic fibrosis, Hemophilia A and chronic pain from a botched foot surgery.
