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!

    • Hi, For all of you guys who have already taken the test, I have a couple of questions in relation to LSAT Flex (I am registered to take it in August) a. What are the steps that I need to take in order to be ready for taking LSAT Flex (i.e. what software to download,  what documents to prepare, is there a web connection that I can/need to test, is there a way to check and certify that I am ready to take the test from a technical perspective, etc.) b. Is there a way to take a "fake" LSAT flex under real-like exam conditions (including all the steps that I need to undertake at a.)? c. When can/should I write the LSAT writing test, before or after taking LSAT Flex? Is it the same setup like for the LSAT Flex? Will I write my writing sample on a computer in a special editor or in an editor of my choosing (i.e. MS Word)? If it is a special editor, is there a way to get acquainted with this editor, does it have spell check and formatting (or is it more like Notepad)? I would not want to have any surprises/scramble to install stuff on my computer on exam day, if at all possible.   Thanks a bunch!
    • For what it’s worth, I interviewed at a mid size municipality outside the GTA last year as a 5 year call. The questions were quite general if I recall:  “describe a situation where you” type stuff and mostly not substantive in nature. Knowledge of municipal or planning wasn’t a large factor in their hiring decision but they did ask some basic questions to get an idea of your level of knowledge.    
    • I was accepted with stats almost identical to yours (3.7 cGPA [3.72 with final winter term marks] and 158 LSAT). Though I was not waitlisted, I recieved my offer of admission later in the cycle during the last large wave of acceptances. Take care when preparing your personal statement and sketch, as well as when selecting those who will write your reference letters and you will have a legitimate shot at an offer from Osgoode- especially if you are able to improve your LSAT a few percentile points. 
    • Holy smokes, that's very intense. You should be very proud of yourself. 167 is an amazing score! Did Mike Kim's Trainer help you?
    • Thats a pretty good diagnostic btw
