Three year undergraduate degree

Recommended Posts

Intl. student here. Will be graduating undergraduate next year by June. It’s a three year program. I’m working on my application right now, mostly ON schools. I have strong sorts. Taking the October LSAT. I have a CGPA of 9.1 on a ten scale. I’m in my second year, should I apply?

If you want to go to law school after your second year, then you should definitely apply.

 9.1 on a 10 scale... Ottawa?

You should convert your grades using OLSAS conversion chart

My country uses the 10 point scale. Should convert to 86% approx. WES has converted it to 3.47 and I have added that to my addendum, PS and everything. 

Thanks for replying, yes I suppose I will apply :)

Nobody can guess you chances of getting into a Canadian law school without an LSAT score. GPA is only half of the equation (less than half for holistic schools).

Ryerson and Ottawa ?

Since Ryerson is new I haven’t heard great things about the school, so didn’t consider it. Still looking into Ottawa.

    • I just got my November LSAT score and it was a 152 (+1 from October, though +4 percentile). I was pretty confused as I thought my score would be better after the exam. Now I'm looking for outside sources such as a course or tutor to help me with my January test. Any recommendations online or in the GTA/Hamilton area specifically?  Side note: I'll be taking time off work to study as I want to go all in for January's test.
    • Keep in mind that your mileage may vary and I'm not exactly a seasoned pro. I'm sure plenty of tax boutiques would love a CPA/JD combo. But I'm not sure how useful it is beyond that. Plenty (most?) of tax lawyers get by without a CPA and it seems like a very difficult path to get to the same place as a tax lawyer. Add on top of that that CPA are very well compensated. Kinda just seems like a doctor picking two specialties that can sorta/sometimes overlap and having to stay up to date on both of them while getting paid the same. 
    • If you are solely looking at those programs to provide a financial/responsibility advantage, then yes, my answer is the same. When 2Ls are hired at a large firm, they all earn the same amount. Same with articling students and first year associates. Associate compensation is, at many if not most firms, going to be lockstep for several years. So, I ask again, are you looking at this solely, or even primarily, from a financial perspective?
    • A 154 looks bad, and so does a cancel. Keeping it is free. Your law school chances are really all about getting a better score next time.
    • Good stats. No reason to stress unless you really, really must get into Oz vs. the others.
