Chances?

Recommended Posts

I’m sitting with a 3.7 and 157. I have a newborn so studying for the LSAT was challenging. I’ll have a nanny to either return to work or start law school. Also have a Masters degree.

Any thoughts on my chances?
 

Thanks!

According to last year’s applicant profile (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-u9luOkViBOYVM2bWFMcmJNcUpOZVBZY0lsTVpyOGRIaGFR/view) only one student was admitted in the Regular category with your stats, which means you have a good (albeit not guaranteed) chance. (Note: the table does not include 36 students admitted in the Holistic round).

What is your L2 to the second decimal point? Did you include your Masters grades? Also, are you applying for this cycle, or for 2021? If the latter, you may consider re-doing the LSAT (acknowledging your study time restraints) and aim for a better average.

Either way, I recommend putting solid work into your PS in case your file goes to holistic review. Feel free to PM me if you want to ask about specific/personal content you’re considering including. A cursory review of my profile will show that I was a lucky holistic admit - my PS was apparently acceptable and I’m happy to share my approach.

Thanks. I’ve applied for 2020. My gpa is 3.72. And yes, that is with 24 credits from my MA (thesis-based), and the rest from my undergrad.

I put loads of work into my PS (already submitted). 🤞

Aaah, so the die is cast!

My honest opinion is that you have a chance, albeit a narrow chance, of getting in as a Regular applicant. Holistic chances are anyone’s guess. If you have not heard by end-March early April, you will likely be waitlisted.

I asked for your L2 to two decimal points because some legit geniuses in past years have come up with a pretty accurate prediction formula based on your L2 and LSAT scores (link below). Although your score is below the predicted auto-admit range, it’s not abysmally low. 
Good luck!

    • Hello guys, I hope you are all safe during this period. I am interested in applying to Ottawa University for the civil law program.My GPA is like 3.4/4.3 but I am planning on retaking about 4 classes to boost it up. May I hear a few stats about people who got accepted GPA on 4.3 pls Thank you !
    • I’d advice against this totally.    iPads are extremely expensive (particularly the pro and the keyboard you’d need). I have an iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard and Pencil (the previous Gen). It’s not bad for occasional emails or reading or watching content but for day to day use and heavy typing forget it. The keyboard is much smaller and condensed and you will hate your life. You’re also going to then buy a bother monitor, keyboard and mouse to plug into your Desktop. Not to mention there’s an issue as to whether iOS is even compatible with UT’s exam software.    If you like Apple but you want a desktop like experience, I’d pick up the new MacBook Air. The specs are much more improved then a few years ago but it’s more affordable then a pro. Very lightweight, great battery life, and ideal for taking notes on in class and studying at the library.    You can always buy an external monitor and hook up your Mac to it so when you’re home you have a bigger screen to work on.    That’s what I’d do if I were you today. iPads are not bad don’t get me wrong but they’re a far cry from a computer.    Skip to 0:54 for the super cringy classic arrogant Apple comment which I’m sure you’ve seen:  
    • Paying back six figures of loans will also be very bad for your mental health, just fyi.
    • Congrats! I have also been accepted to both Ottawa and Ryerson waiting on the rest. Do you mind telling me what is drawing you more to Ryerson over Ottawa? 
    • Ok perfect thank you. Congratulations btw!
