Chances w/ 78.5% cGPA and 158 LSAT

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I was wondering, what are my chances of getting into TRU this cycle with 78.5% cGPA and 80% average in my last two years from UBC with a 158 LSAT (I took the January one as well, but I have no clue how it went).
I'm worried because my stats aren't the best and I have average LORs and ECs.  

Thanks!!

These stats seem to be in line with some other previous accepted students. However, you need to take that information with a grain of salt. 

TRU is truly holistic and they will look at the whole application and likely will compare it to other similar applications. TRU generally looks for a very diverse class so just because a bunch of other students with the same or similar stats got in, that doesn't guarantee anything. They don't want a whole bunch of students who appear identical on paper so they will look to your ECs, reference letters, personal statements, etc. to inform their final decisions.

    • First time posting after a lengthy "lurker" status. Has anyone seen their Jan LSAT score pop up in OLSAS yet? Mine hasn't. I'm guessing that's normal, as it has only been a few days since the scores were released, but wanted to compare notes.
    • Update: People have been accepted with worse stats than me at this point...
    • Has anyone out there gone to meet with Dean Holloway for anything? If so, what for? I've been summoned for a chat and I don't know what to expect. I'm sure it's nothing bad but the uncertainty is doing nothing good for my imagination. He seems like the kind of guy who genuinely likes chatting with students so maybe something along those lines? 
    • Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region: You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate.  There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.
