Really Need Help - Cant Decide

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm currently in my fourth year graduating in Winter 2019. I am planning to write my LSAT in Sept and Nov. I have started to prepare for the LSAT as well. So i am in this dilemma if I should retake a certain course. I failed Stats, but I retook it at a different university and it did not transfer as the one i took before. So i still have that F on my transcript, and it did not change my GPA. I was planning to retake this course in the summer to boost my GPA up, currently my Cumulative GPA is around 3.2 and my L2 is around 3.67. I have been on the deans list twice now. Do you think its worth it?

Most schools will count the F regardless of whether you redo the class- they count all classes taken. So only take the class if you think you'll do very well! or it's better to just take a different course since redoing it won't effect/nullify the previous grade.

Depends on the schools you want to apply to. If it's drops like UBC, or L2/B2 like UWO/Queen's then no. If it's cGPA schools only like Ottawa, maybe.

All of this depends on your LSAT of course, your cGPA is decent enough that a strong LSAT can compensate.

I have 3.4/3.65/161 and got into Queens mid Feb (accepted right away so didnt hear from other schools after) - so you definently have a good shot depending on your LSAT!

The boost to your average would be minor at best. Just focus on the LSAT.

if you don't mind me asking, did you apply access? I have similar stats (general applicant) so holding out hope!

haha no I was general, but I would argue that my EC's/References are way above average which is what probably did it

    • 60% course load for the full year?
    • Queens has different criteria than U of T for how full of a course load you had to have taken in a year for it to be counted towards your b2 or 3. My B3 (for U of T) incorporates a year that Queens wouldn’t count because it was a 60% course load, which U of T counts as full-time but Queens doesn’t. That year was a very good one, so it brings it up quite a bit. 
    • Just looking for honest opinions and stories re: moving for school. Do you regret moving, do you wish you would have stayed? Was it the best experience of your life? I am just curious.    Small background: I have established a career in the legal field in the city i'm currently in. I am not tied to family but do have a few close friends and important people I will miss and I am a bit nervous thinking about moving somewhere I don't know anyone. If it matters, I am hoping I get into UBC but may also consider an Ontario school and I am from Alberta.
