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.

    • If I land a summer job in one city and they want to hire me for articling, is it possible to negotiate securing that articling job with the firm in a different city the firm operates in? Technically, with OCIs likely being online/remote this year, I wonder if it makes sense to apply to as many cities as possible to increase the chance of landing an OCI. Thank you.
    • Thank you!! Hoping to get admitted 🙏🏼
    • My best advice is not to get too high or too low through the process. A great interview can lead to no call and the strangest, driest 17 minutes of your life can lead to a firm calling you exactly at 8:00am on call day. Try to keep an even keel, don’t read too much into things like not receiving a response to your thank email, and keep smiling and moving forward.  If a firm doesn’t call you for an in-firm, forget them! Focus on the firms who did and move on.  It’s a weird, exhausting few weeks, but like all things it will end.  Good luck. 
    • When interviewing at the firm where I later articled, one of my interviewers explicitly warned me that they had a temper problem (which they said they were trying to overcome). I was stupid enough to accept the position.
    • Public is the most important one (only real mark) so you probably have a good shot if all your other application materials are good as well. I can't believe you still didn't get one of your marks back yet... and the assignment for that class is worth 6.7%? Such a random number.  Also are one of those grades an ILS assignment?
