Thanks !

Your LSAT isn't amazing, but your GPA is decent. Send an application in but don't hold your breath, I have not met anyone here who does not have their undergrad degree even though the admissions page does say they will look at applications with 90 credits.  Honestly I would complete your undergrad. Having a science undergrad can be very attractive to certain law firms, having 3 years of a science degree doesn't mean anything to them.  Once you do complete your undergrad if you can maintain that GPA you should be able to get accepted.

Generally students who get accepted to any law school with only 3 years of undergrad are exceptional students with very high GPAs and LSATs. Your GPA is good but your LSAT is just decent, so together they don't really have a reason to take you over someone who completed their degree.

I don't know anyone in my class who doesn't have an undergrad degree. There's 0 downside to finishing your degree first.

    • Hey Team!   I was just given an early admission seat to Penn State Dickinson law. It included a 42,000 scholarship and I am totally interested in it and thinking about paying the 500$ in January to keep it as an option. BUT -the email says "Because you were admitted to Dickinson Law through our binding Early Decision program, you contractually agreed to enroll at Dickinson Law in the fall semester if admitted. To honor this commitment, your initial deposit of $500 is due no later than January 15, 2019. Additionally, you must withdraw any pending applications to other law schools and you may not initiate any new applications". I have a feeling I will no longer be able to apply to American schools on the LSAC website (?), but I assume I can still totally use OLSAS and get into Ontario schools and other Canadian schools? I'd like to still apply to Canadian schools and see what my options might be.
    • I had a similar experience. I had studied while working full-time over the summer last year and I was resigned to re-taking based on my practice tests by September. I know many people re-take, but I had put in a considerable amount of work and was beating myself up over it. I ended up getting the score while sitting at an academic event and I ran to the nearest bathroom and locked myself in a stall then opened it. I felt immediate relief when I realized that my score was higher than I anticipated and that I wouldn't need to think about the LSAT ever again. Pure bliss. 
    • Haven't heard from all four (didn't apply to Gardiner), but v interested to know
    • I applied to Osgoode last year and at that point I had not taken the LSAT with accommodations and so I clicked no. Now that I am reapplying for 2019, I am being faced with the dilemma of whether or not I should write that I have been granted accommodations on my LSAT. Will this effect my chances if they know that I had accommodations and performed significantly better?
