Hey people!

I just needed some help regarding my LSAT score and personal statement. I got 151 the first time I wrote the LSAT, which I just wrote as a practice run, barely studying. The second time around I studied and got 160. I know U of A averages LSAT scores so I was wondering if I should mention why I got a low score in my personal statement? And what are my chances?

Thanks in advance!

What's your L2 GPA? If its like 3.8/3.9 you should be good.

    • I would take the job and keep looking. There's only one firm I can think of whose reputation is so bad I would automatically not consider someone.  
    • Hi folks, I'm struggling with how to indicate a one-off continuing studies course I took at U of T in the Academic Background section on OLSAS. This course didn't lead to a certificate, I took it to further my knowledge of project management in the evenings after work. Would anyone be able to help me figure out how to show this? Thank you!
    • The "Law - Hold" status means that you're potentially admissible, but they're waiting for additional information (e.g., fall grades, LSAT score) before making a decision. If your stats end up being competitive enough, this status is often a formality.  "Decision Pending" is different: it typically means that your application is insufficient for admission as submitted, but they're waiting until all information is final (i.e., for January LSAT scores to come in) before issuing a decision (almost always a rejection later on in the cycle). 
    • @Lawl1324 I had above average grades, particularly in criminal-related courses. However, you’re going to need above average grades to get an interview for most Crown positions, regardless of whether they are in your home province or not.    Yes, I did end up working in Crown prosecutions, but not immediately after graduation.    With respect to determining what is or is not in the public interest, with respect, I think you’re misunderstanding how Crown charge assessment works. Whether a prosecution is or is not in the public interest is going to be based on policy and Crown guidelines (see the recent simple possession issue, as an example). Also, if a Crown makes a decision not to charge a file, that is most often going to be because it fails to meet the evidentiary standard (the first branch of the charge assessment test).
