Chances for next cycle? 2.6cGPA-3.54L2-170LSAT

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

I know that cGPA schools are out of question.

What are my chances for law schools that look at L2 like Queen's and Western. Also, what about schools that look at drops.

Thanks for any replies.

If you can justify the L2 as being substantively better; there is a chance at Queens and Western.

I'd recommend applying as broadly as possible though.

I think these stats are decent for L2 schools

Thanks for the replies guys.

You don't think that my cGPA and L2 GPA are too low for Queens and Western? I can probably push my L2 to 3.6 but that will be under the competitive range. Hoping that my LSAT makes up for it.

I read the stats matrix of UManitoba of 2016&2017 and found that whoever got 170 or above LSAT can be admitted as long as the GPA is 2.0 above. So OP may have a strong shot for it!

mazzystar was wait-listed at Western and rejected by Queens with 3.3/3.55 and 170 last cycle.

You have a shot there but you have a better chance at UofA (is 170 your only LSAT score?), Calgary and Manitoba.

Western still cares cGPA and Queens orders files by cGPA and average LSAT scores.

I thought that UofA only looks at cGPA and yes it is my only score.

UofA only looks your L2.

Did you fail any classes, by the way?

If not you are in there.

You index = 3.54 (out of 4.0) * 22.5 + 170 = 249.65 > 242.

242 is the auto admit index (most likely).

I did not fail any classes

How do they calculate the index if I have more than one LSAT score?

They average your LSAT scores.

Yeah you should be in at UofA and probably Calgary (but Calgary is a bit more holistic so work experiences, EC’s, and reference come into play). 

Also, you may have a shot at UVic depending on what your GPA looks like after omissions. They give quite a few omissions so I would calculate that to see. Do you have a few really bad grades or a lot of mediocre grades?

I was also thinking of uVic but I am taking an extra year. So, do you know how many drops they do for 5 years? Or is it more like per credits?

I don’t know for sure unfortunately. It was my understanding that their omissions were simply based on having a full degree or just 3 years of undergrad so 5 years would fall under the full degree omissions. However, it would be worth phoning their admissions office to confirm.

    • I couldn't find this topic/comparison in the forum, but please correct me if I'm wrong. As the title implies, I'm hoping to get a good comparison between McGill and University of Manitoba going. I'm ideally trying to figure out which program works best for me, and have seen posts like this in the past so am hoping it's not out of line to provide the following details and ask for the opinions of those more experienced than I when it comes to law school and the opportunities that specific programs can provide. I don't know what factors to even consider any more when considering my offer of admission to McGill.  So what should I be considering given the following context: - I've been admitted into McGill twice now, but still dont know if I should accept. I haven't even applied for University of Manitoba yet & I don't want to get ahead of myself because I've never done the LSAT (McGill doesn't require it because I guess the LSAT isn't offered in French?). However, assuming University of Manitoba is even feasible as a future alternative, I'm trying to balance other details like: - I'm a 30 year old PhD student with completed M.A., and I'm actually fully employed at the moment with what I feel is a great salary (although from what I understand, it is below what most lawyers make within 2 years of leaving law school). I highlight pay because I'm a humanities graduate student, which offers very few employment opportunities within the field, so I'm aware how fortunate I am to be one of the few grad students/M.A. graduates with economic stability relatively soon after a degree. - I am aware that I will need to leave this good job to pursue law, but I just started it and it's the first time this perpetual student has had financial stability. - I have a mortgage in Winnipeg, so University of Manitoba would be financially cheaper, but both programs are financially feasible with a professional student loan. - I have a spouse with a well-paying career in Winnipeg. We met in grad school so we have been surrounded by successful long-distance relationships. My partner fully supports either decision. - I have been told that McGill offers more opportunities outside of Manitoba and even Canada, whereas University of Manitoba offers opportunities mostly within Manitoba. My partner and I enjoy Winnipeg but met outside of Winnipeg, grew up in different provinces, and both love the flexibility of being able to feasibly support ourselves in a different city if we so choose. - I have family in Winnipeg that has made clear they support my studies at University of Manitoba only, and that they think I am making "the mistake of my life" even considering accepting McGill's second offer of admission. I have been told that this is a bit abusive, but my family is very tight-knight in many ways, and not North American in just as many ways, so considering family for life decisions is weighed heavily. Take that as you will, forum participants. - McGill is actually my dream program for so many reasons I won't bother to list in an already-long post. I was previously admitted, but had to say no because I couldn't afford it at the time and received a generous & competitive offer to pursue doctoral studies. I was in debt at the time and am now completely debt free minus my mortgage thanks to that decision. - I am rather determined to do law school one way or another, but I am very scared about the LSAT. I do very well academically, but that is in a research-based context. I have not done a standardized/multiple choice exam since high school. I don't remember my scores but would assume they were average. I excel at long-form examinations,  so I'm not confident I'd be able to get a high score for a standardized test. I have heard that the University of Manitoba has a percentile cut-off, and that it's very rigid (source: friend who was around 0.0.3% below the cut-off and was told she would not be considered). I am considered this is a case of a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush I'm hoping to get unbiased opinions regarding both programs & what is the best career move for someone in my situation. Thanks in advance
