Hi everyone! I've been a lurker on this thread for a while and recently got my October LSAT results back. I am aware that my "index" score is above the previous years traditional auto-admit threshold, but I was wondering if 3rd years applying are held to the same standard? My cGPA is 86.4% and with 6 credits worth of drops its 87%, and my LSAT is 167. If there are any other 3rd year's from previous years that got in I would appreciate any comments! Thanks :)

I imagine that, unless otherwise stated on the admissions website, everyone is held to the same standard in the general category. If being a 3rd year made things different for you in some way the application or admissions info likely would have mentioned it. Since they didn't, I think you're all good 🙂

I’m in the same boat—index score above auto-admit and in 3rd year. I’ll be following this thread.

I was a 3rd year above the auto-admit threshold when I applied last year and can confirm you'll be treated exactly the same as everyone else.  I'd even say sit back and relax while you wait for your acceptance--around this time last year I was already making reservations for my celebratory dinner :)

Thanks @meandtheboys! That’s encouraging. Was yours a conditional acceptance?

Yes!  My condition was to finish my 3rd year with an average within 3% of the average I applied with (though this number might vary depending on your stats)

Sorry just asking for clarification, your cGPA at the end of year 3 was within 3% of your cGPA at the end of year 2, or your 3rd year only average was within 3% of your end of year 2 cGPA? Thanks!

A reminder to everyone, yet again, that only one account is allowed here. If anyone has any further advice for the OP, direct it to ap4750. Thank you.

Sorry—I don’t understand. Did we do something wrong? I’m just asking so I can avoid repeating a mistake.

No no, I just lost the password to this account and have stopped using the email associated with it, so I made a new account (bighydrationperson). The mod reminded me that only one account / person was allowed so I reset my email/this accounts password. Sorry for any confusion! I'll try to start up an excel sheet with passwords or smth hahah

    • You are 100% for OZ, Western and Queens. Close to 100% for U of T
    • We have 5 courses at once this year, because some courses have been divided by term. But it's usually 7, so you could probably count on that next year. We probably only spend about 10 hours a week in lecture or tutorial. But this is not counting pre-recorded lectures, which vary quite a bit because the profs aren't really bound to a timeslot anymore. I would think like 15-18 hours would be normal for "in-class" at a normal time. I personally probably spend another 25 hours a week or so on top of that to do the readings and assignments, so pretty close to 40 hours on the whole, overall. I can't stree enough that this will really vary by individual. Some people don't feel the need to read most of the cases, so will definitely be less. I'm sure some also feel the need to re-read, consult more secondary sources, etc. There's certainly no way I could work while doing this, but I know that some of my classmates are doing it. It will really be down to your organizational skills as an individual! -GM
