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.

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.

    • Hi everyone! I was hoping someone could shed some light on what it's like to live in and around the UCalgary campus compared to UAlberta. I have lived basically across the street from the UAlberta campus for five years in the same place (so the UAlberta campus has pretty much been my world for five years). I really enjoy living here, but I'd also love to start over in a new city. I'm originally from northern Alberta, so I've never even been to Calgary before. Can anyone speak to the availability/quality of apartment buildings walking-distance from campus (or is it more houses for rent in this area)? Do those of you who live walking-distance from campus enjoy the area, is there decent grocery/restaurant/recreation opportunities without having to access public transit for daily errands? Basically, is the campus area a nice place to settle for a few years for someone who doesn't own a car and wants to be able to walk to most day-to-day tasks? Lastly, is the general cultural event scene comparable to Edmonton (ie FolkFest, Fringe, lots of summer festivals, etc.)? I apologize if this post sounds naive, I just have zero knowledge of this city! Thank you so much!
    • I've been thinking about this. After 1L, what should we be doing with out summers if we don't secure law-related work? Volunteering with law clinics? Throughout my undergrad I spent my summers working full-time to save up for the upcoming school year. 
    • I really want to emphasize the bold above. And highlight that incessant pivoting won't just deny you bonus points: it can be a tremendous negative. Many lawyers and law students -- even in practice where a job isn't on the line strangely -- have made pivoting to their work experience and accolades a default. It is annoying. It can alienate colleagues. Please not do this. Stop doing this if you've already started, it's not too late. Importantly, it demonstrates a failure to listen and respond efficiently and appropriately, which is kind of a crucial legal skill. While I'm not yet in my career responsible for final hiring decisions, I've been consulted plenty about candidates I chatted with on the phone, met for coffee, or did a preliminary interview/Q&A with as part of a larger hiring process. My reputation is important and I don't recommend people with whom I wouldn't enjoy working myself. I also won't recommend someone incapable of basic listening and responding abilities. I'm not alone on either front. If it happens in a low-pressure environment, I'd be concerned about it happening when it matters. Just talk about kayaking and why you like it. 
    • When I ask this question in an interview, I'm looking for a candidate to explain what drives/motivates them and to explain why they'd be a good fit for my firm. However, I don't really want candidates to regurgitate their CV as I've already read it! So I think I'll just start asking: What drives and motivates you and why do you think you'd be a good fit for the firm?  Interviews are stressful and I really want to get to know who the candidates are. It's not a test - it's an interview! That's why I try to review these forums around OCIs and hopefully adapt my interview practice. Now I know that I should be more direct 😛 
    • I recently requested a transcript from my school with my updated Fall grades. On OLSAS it says that my new transcript has been received, however when I check my GPA on Academic Background my cGPA has not changed and my Fall 2020 grades are not showing up. These grades would improve my GPA by a few points. I know lots of Ontario schools won't consider them but I paid for them to be on OLSAS and I'm concerned. Do I just have to wait a few days for the website to update or do I need to do something else? I waited until my Fall grades were final to request my transcript and I selected the send immediately option. Any help would be great thanks.
