Chances? cGPA 3.79, LSAT 168

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what you guys thought of my chances! I'm currently in a business undergrad program so my cGPA is pretty much my B3. My first year grades aren't that great but I had a significant increase after my first year, which is reflected in my transcript. I've also taken a rigorous course load throughout, done 2 internships (one at a Big 4), and been involved with many on-campus organizations and clubs. I was also wondering if anyone could shed some light on how U of T looks at your transcript - do the consider year to year improvement and the courses you took? I've only written the LSAT once and don't really want to write it again so I'm wondering what my chances are with these stats. Thanks in advance!

Thank you! I'm just nervous given my cGPA is below the median... do you think it makes sense to retake the LSAT or should I just focus on putting together a great personal statement and give it a shot with this score?

That is only my own opinion. I could be wrong

I definitely would not re-write the LSAT. In fact I think you will almost definitely get in as long as you write a solid personal statement. 

UofT does, in fact, look at upward trends in transcripts. If you improved from 1st to 3rd year this will look very good.

    • Just a reminder that Queen's does not actually have a "mature" category. However, they do allow you to cite "age" and "life experience" as valid criteria under the "access" category. This may be a minor difference, but I think it shifts the onus onto you to explain how those factors are relevant to your application. Slightly less straightforward than the schools who have an actual "mature" category. In any case, Queen's Access medians (3.73, 160) are only slightly lower than the regular category (3.76, 161). As a result, even under Access, you're a bit below median - it would be a close call.  It would probably be worth actually calculating your B2 precisely, if you want a more accurate prediction.  As it stands, I concur with Luckycharm's prediction for regular category; for Access I would guess you are very close to 50/50. -GM
    • It's the name of the law school building, not the law school itself. Queen's does not have a named law school like UBC does with Allard, for instance.
    • Language in the article is so confusing. So I understand the law school building is/was Sir John A. MacDonald Hall, but has the law school itself ever actually been referred to as that? 
    • Hey guys! For those of you who have been accepted or working on your application now, would you guys be able to help me with the diversity question on the application? Im kinda stuck on this one as I cant really think of what to write about. Reading on some online suggestions, a lot seem to suggest that diversity is not simply race, ethnicity, sexuality, socio-economic status etc etc. Would anyone be able to send some help??? 😥
    • This^ When I was offered an interview by the Treasury Board Secretariat (a gov't entity), the person on the phone said to me straight up they don't mind me putting them on my last day because the interviews are all scored quantitively. Gov't also doesn't care about the first choice game either - because again, they rank everyone by a score and just call from the top down until they fill their slots.
