Chances LSAT 153

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I just scored a 153 on the November 2018 LSAT, and most likely, my L2 GPA will be around 3.1 or 3.2 Do I have any chances of getting into a law school in Canada at all?

Stay Positive! I've applied to Windsor, Calgary, Manitoba, and Western (long shot I know) with a 3.0 CPA and a 156 LSAT. Just know you are not alone! I was practicing around 165's on all my lsats up until test day. I'm not really sure why I did so poorly, its quite infuriating actually but I know that I truly could not have studied harder. I was doing full LSAT's almost every single day. If its meant to be at this point, it will be. Good luck to you!

That's very encouraging! When did you get accepted / were you waitlisted?

I applied in November 2016, was waitlisted and accepted June 2017! I think it had to deal with the fact that my application was really social-justice oriented and focused which is nice to know that they put a big emphasis on social justice :)

Hey,

It's possible, no harm in trying.

I personally suggest re-writing the LSAT. I know before being admitted it's like "I just wanna get in somewhere!" but I assure you, you can improve. Just go slow and steady, even if it takes you a while. Go one concept at a time, and start timing yourself only after you really feel like you mastered all the concepts.

Again, I assure you that you can improve. It may take time, but you can do it.

    • People are accepted every year with fewer than five courses in one semester. Will this, in and of itself, prevent you from getting into law school? The answer is no.
    • Demonstrated interest through ECs will go a lot further in applications/interviews than a grade, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Something not entirely relevant but anecdotal: I had a class where my grade was lower than I anticipated, so I went to see the prof and review my exam. In reviewing it they found that they incorrectly marked a multiple choice question (for law...I know...) and with the correction it bumped me up a grade. Also in reviewing it, they found that my fact pattern/essay response was among the top of the class, but I just bombed the MC (which is why multiple choice should not be a thing in law school). They immediately corrected the grade/my transcript and offered to write me a reference letter explaining why my grade, though good, wasn't entirely representative of my knowledge in the course - just providing more context to the grade. Does your prof know about your interest/EC activity in family law? Do you have a rapport with them? You could always request a letter if you're worried about it. It wouldn't hurt to approach them and even say "I'm worried about this grade, I want to go into family law, I'm applying for articling positions - is there anything you can suggest I do going forward?" This could either open the door to a) a reference letter or b) their recommendations for courses, ECs, research help, a referral to someone that might be looking for a student.
    • aucune idée! l’année passée ils ont contacté les candidats en début mars. par contre, en 2016, ils les avaient contactés quelques jours après la date limite 
    • This was a helpful breakdown. Thanks for your insight!
