Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!!

My stats are 162 LSAT, 3.779 GPA after drops. What do you think my chances are with these stats?

These are the stats from last year for admissions. It is a PDF. https://law.robsonhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/web-stats-201990-1.pdf 

If your GPA is on a 4.5 scale. Then looking at the matrix, you can see that your chances applying that year would have been 31/33. I think stats for this year will be released sometime in September or later, not 100% sure when, so you can use that as a more accurate measure. New stats will be posted here https://robsonhall-dev.cc.umanitoba.ca/student-resources/admissions/statistics/ by the university under the 'LSAT/AGPA stats table'.

 

If your GPA is not on a 4.5 then you need to convert it using this PDF. https://umanitoba.ca/faculties/graduate_studies/media/Canadian_GPA_Equivalencies.pdf

 

Good Luck.

Should be ok with those stats. I had similar and got in before the cutoff for the first round of applications.

Hey guys- did pretty crappy on lsat (149) but I have a pretty high GPA so my AGPA is around 73... is it even worth applying? I’m scheduled to retake the lsat in January

    • @legallybrunette3 and @Dreamchaser Thanks. Only problem I see is that money is kind of an issue right now and I am ready to invest money into law school (if I potentially get in) but what if my GPA is lower than my undergrad when I go to law school. Would that be a waste of money than in the long run?
    • A 3.0 gpa does not equate to being “dumb”. A 160 diagnostic is also quite high, my diagnostic was in the low 150s and I had to study for months to break into the 160s. You clearly have some aptitude for the test, which is a good sign that you may be able to achieve a high score through studying. Khan uses real LSAT tests, so if you completed a timed practice test, that is an accurate representation of your baseline.    I am wondering, however, do you want to be a lawyer? There are ways to work around a low gpa and a 3.0 isn’t a deal breaker...but you sound a bit passive in your post. There are plenty of further education paths you can take with a psych undergrad. Law school is an expensive and gruelling journey from what I’ve been told, so before beginning the application/LSAT process, I think it’s more important to figure out why you want to pursue law specifically. Are you interested in law, or are you unsure of your career path? It’s completely fine to be unsure right now, but you want to be sure before you go down this road. 
    • Merci 👌🏾 toujours en attente 😅.
    • I mean... You're the accountant - crunch the numbers.  From a non-accounting perspective, you should consider whether you are debt-adverse and how old you want to be in law school. Though I should mention that nobody actually cares how old you are in law school or when applying to firms. 
    • If you don’t mind doing another semester or two and moving your graduation date it would really help a lot because GPA is really important. I would say keep going on the LSAT prep too. A 160 is really good, it essentially means you scored better than around 80% of people that took it. Don’t say you’re not very bright!  Take another one to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.   Khan academy is good because it’s free but when you’re ready to drop some coin get the PowerScore bible books and a subscription to 7sage. The consensus is they’re the absolute best.
