Chances [3.0 CPGA, 3.3 B2, 174 AVG LSAT PT]

Recommended Posts

What are my chances at Canadian (ideally Ontario law schools) 

I just graduated from Western and had pretty bad marks in my earlier years. 

1st - 69 

2nd - 70 

3rd - 76 

4th - 82 (Deans list) 

I started seeing a psychiatrist after my second year who had me tested and diagnosed with severe ADHD, I started taking medication and seeing her about once a month which explains the increase in grades. I also didn't use any academic accommodation (extra time, computer privileges etc.) to make sure I would be able to succeed without them on the LSAT and in law school (if i get in). 

I havent written my LSAT yet (registered for the July) but have been studying for about 1 month and they have really turned out to be my strong suit. I have done about 6 full online proctored practice tests and have been averaging a 174 on them. 

I know my grades are really going to bring me down, was wondering if anyone had an insight on what my chances are looking like or any ways to increase my chances.

70 - 3.0?

76 - 3.3?

82 - 3.7?

What is your lowest LSAT testing score?

Are you sure your L2/B2 is only 3.3? Looks like it should be higher.

You will have good chances for Western and Queens in Access category.

With a high LSAT score you may also have chances for UofT, Osgoode and Ottawa.

Don't know about Windsor, Lakehead and Ryerson though.

I suggest you apply to Alberta, Calgary, DAL, UNB, UVic and UBC as well.

For UBC:

Others definitely have more experience and knowledge on this topic but with a 170+ and those grades i say youre bound to get in somewhere, if not at a very good school. Of course the cGPA may be a negative factor but with an upward trend and that LSAT you would probably be a pretty attractive candidate for a lot of Ontario schools. In addition, if you are going to mention the diagnosis and factor that into your apps i think it will prove to be very valid reason for the trend in your grades. Take advantage of the time now and really push upwards of a 174 and i think youre golden. I wish i had something close to that LSAT score haha.

In the current COVID-19 pandemic situation (I think it is hard to find a job due to it) I suggest you register as a non-degree student to raise your L2/B2 GPA (make sure they are not P/F though) in the coming Fall term.

If you can get your L2 GPA to 3.5+ / 4.0 (with 170+ LSAT) you will have good chance to get into a bunch of law schools:

Western, Queens, Alberta, Calgary, UNB, TRU, USASK, Manitoba, DAL, etc.

    • Je suis allée voir pour l'année passée, c'est allé jusqu'au 12 mai les acceptations et par lui suite ils ont sorti la liste d'attente la journée même. Je crois qu'on en a encore pour un bout. C'est lourd haha. Mais bon l'année passé il y a eu le lockdown et tout et j'imagine qu'ils ont prit du retard,  je ne crois pas que ca va aller jusque là cette année. Mais honnêtement j'en ai vraiment marre d'aller voir mon centre étudiant tous les jours. J'ai tellement hâte de savoir j'ai des arrangements à faire (loyer, nouvel appart, nouvelle ville etc).  Courage on en a surement pour moins d'un mois d'attente ! 
    • It seems like the offers that were made on the 15th came from the general category. Pure speculation- but maybe the access committee hasn't sat down for an assessment session since the April 1st deadline? Hoping there's movement for access applicants soon  
    • What score did you end up with? if you don't mind me asking. And was that it? just the seven weeks? 
    • But they're not Morgan's..
    • Je connais quelqu'un qui l'a fait et ça donne des sessions assez chargées! Elle l'avait plus fait par opportunité, mais c'est certains que ça peut être intéressant d'avoir les deux. Il y a plus d'info sur le programme combiné ici: https://droit.umontreal.ca/fileadmin/droit/documents/PDF/programmes_combines/LLB_JD_etudessuperieures.pdf 😊
