If you can get 160+ LSAT you are in Western and Queens.

I got in with a lower cGPA, lower L60, and 165. You need a strong LSAT.

I got in with a 3.35, 3.61, and a 170.

Western doesn't seem to fuss over CGPA too much.

Congrats, that’s an insane LSAT, did you take a course?

I did a course but it didn't increase my PT scores at all, so I switched to the Powerscore Bibles and found their methods worked much better for me.

Strong cumulative averages will be considered

 

 https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/jd_admissions/admissions_FAQ/grades_and_courses.html

Does Western Law consider all undergraduate study, the best 2 years, or the last 2 years?
We consider all years of study and, as a general rule, applicants with strong cumulative averages will be preferred.  However, we will place greater weight on the last 2 years of full-time (or equivalent) undergraduate study in appropriate circumstances, typically where the cumulative average falls below 3.7.

Get at least a 160 and you should have a good shot at Western/Queens, as others have mentioned. If you want more security, or want to attend other schools, you'll need a higher score. If you're only a few weeks out and hitting mid to high 150s, I wouldn't stop when you hit 160. Study hard for a few months and that higher LSAT score will pay dividends.

Will definitely take this advice, thank you

I was rejected outright from Western and accepted to Queens with a cGPA 3.37, L2/B2 3.6, and 161 LSAT

That’s reassuring, good luck at Queens!

    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.  
    • Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.
