Chances for cGPA 3.93 LSAT mid 160s

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 

What are my chances for the stats in the title? I don't know exact L2/B3, but it should be around 3.93 as all 4 years were very consistent. My B3 would be slightly higher, probably 3.95, and L2 would be slightly lower, maybe 3.90-3.91. LSAT I'd say around 164 ish? I think I can score a 164; currently in the middle of practicing, my timed diagnostic without prep was 160 on Khan.

Considering all schools, from most to least competitive. My softs aren't super good. Some volunteering, was part of a student research committee, doing an MSc currently but it's course based. I suppose I have a relatively unique life context: I'm a nurse and am potentially interested in personal injury or family law. 

Thanks!

I think you'd have a terrific chance at basically every school except UofT and even then, your GPA is beyond their 75th percentile and and lsat of 164 would be slightly lower than their median so you'd still have a pretty good chance there as well

I'd be surprised if you didn't get in everywhere. Similar to you, my diagnostic was 159 and I scored a 164 on the real thing, with practice tests peaking around 169.

I'm considering all schools for now because I'm very unfamiliar with admissions process. I'm currently looking at people's posts on this forum to get a sense of average stats, but thought I'd ask specifically for my situation to get more knowledge.

I found the oxford seminars link, but is the information there still current? Some stats seem like they're out of date.

I think they're still pretty accurate for most schools. Average GPA/LSAT isn't going to deviate very much year-to-year.

TRU and Lakehead don't list their GPA/LSAT requirements because they're only ~10 years old and want more admissions data before being able to list accurate averages.

    • LSAT prep companies and book writers do not, to my knowledge, have access to any special information the general public doesn't that would answer this questioj. LSAC obviously would but they also have an interest in people believing that if they just keep writing they can improve. The only information I've seen on this is what Cleanhands linked several pages back which doesn't seem favourable to their business model which I'm willing to infer is probably why a business with ~$70,000,000 in annual revenuebstopped releasing it. Besides, the person disagreeing with me initially was disagreeing with the proposition that people top out in terms of improvement eventually; you just need to buy that not everyone can score in the top 99.97 percentile (180) which I would have thought would be relatively uncontroversial since it's basically the same as saying not everyone can run a 10 second 100 m or 2:10 marathon.
    • I don't have any personal data. I can think of lots of colleagues and acquaintainces who went from litigation to solicitor, advisory, or other non-litigation roles. If it happened the other way around, it happened so early it doesn't even register--probably first year of practice.
    • I got a reference from a professor who gave me a B+ that was stronger than the one i got from a professor who gave me an A (in a more difficult course). 
    • A few things, my man: -I don't think @JusticeLordDenning was making the sort of value judgement you read in to that. Asking how students fare outside the formal recruit is not saying that the formal recruit jobs are necessarily the best jobs out there. -Both the DOJ and provincial Crown prosecution service participate in the formal recruit, so that's a poor example to illustrate your point. "Jobs in the recruit" isn't synonymous with "BigLaw." -I highly doubt that there is a huge difference in the level of interest in the formal recruit between Canadian law schools in general, and especially between Queens and Western as a specific example. And just to be clear, I'd be the last person to boost BigLaw or claim that working at a smaller firm outside the GTA is somehow inferior.
    • Some of this is might be based on what I consider to be a false assumption:  That law students who secure jobs at big firms in an urban area have succeeded while those who do not have failed. For example, a Queens student may have the career goal of securing a foot in the door with the Crown in a rural area and a Western student may want to get into business law with a small firm in a medium sized city.
