Chances 3.88 and 158 LSAT (non NB resident)

Recommended Posts


I've long been a lurker on these forums and I'm posting for the first time today. I was wondering what my chances would be with a 3.88 (with drops) and a 158 LSAT? - Regular Category
Basically, I'm wondering if I should submit my application right now or if I should wait to rewrite the LSAT and submit after November?

I know there might be a better chance if I submit it right now but I was wondering if my stats are good enough for a non-resident of NB?

Side note, does anyone know if submitting with references (although not required for regular category) actually improves your chances? Would I have an equal chance of getting in with 2 references as with 1 or none?

Thank you, any insight is greatly appreciated.

You have the average LSAT score and an above average GPA (which is weighted heavier in your favor). You have a good chance of getting an offer, but it might not be an early one. References are helpful, but they are not officially factored in to admissions unless they are on the fence or for scholarships. Its rolling admissions so its much better to get it in ASAP, and rewrite the LSAT in Nov or even Jan if you want. (They use your highest score whenever it happens)

Awesome, thanks for the information. I'll try to send off my application as soon as possible then.

My numbers were pretty much exactly the same and I got admitted without references. I'm also not a NB resident (but I do live on the East Coast). I think you probably have a pretty good shot, just make sure you get your application in as soon as you can!

Good luck!

    • Hi guys, it's my first time posting (apologies for the long post in advance), but I've seen people get some very good advice on here and wanted to try my hand. My top choice is Osgoode, and I'm currently finishing up my last year of undergrad at York U (if that matters). I've kept my options open and applied to a bunch of other places (UNB, Uottawa, Dal, Windsor, Queens, Western, Ucalgary). My OLSAS cGPA is 3.67 and my L2 is 3.8 as well. I wrote the September LSAT after studying intensively since April and suffice to say I bombed it (147). I changed my approach and took an LSAT course at York from September leading up to the November test this week and I was PTing around 155-156 (I know its not amazing but I feel I made a sizable jump from September to November), but suddenly the week before the test I feel I've regressed, I'm not sure if this is due to fatigue or what. To be blunt, I know with the current 147 I have no chance anywhere, but if I can get my PT average on the test at least, do you guys think I can at least get into one of the places I've applied to? I'm open to possibly writing again in January, but I obviously want to see how November goes because I've put in a lot of work up this point.  Thanks for your time guys, appreciate it in advance if you took the time to read this! 
    • Hi! I applied for winter 2019 as well and am still waiting for an answer!
    • Agreed. I've hit max bonus before and it's not often worth it. Some level of bonus is nice though.
    • is there?? I thought that just meant your application is under evaluation
