Chances? cGPA 3.67, LSAT 166 (OCT was 164), strong softs

Recommended Posts

Just got the November score and improved 2 points. My LSAT is right on the median at 166, but my GPA is below the median.. In third year I got promoted into 4th year earlier, so there are only year 1 2 4 on my transcript, meaning the cGPA and best 3 year are same. Got Dean's Honour Roll in two years but forgot to put in the sketches.. Otherwise had several work experiences, and several long-term extracurricular commitment and volunteer. Any suggestions? Should I take the LSAT again in January?

    • Got an offer this afternoon. TRU seems like an awesome school. I am so excited to meet new people and expand my mind. I am very grateful to TRU for offering me this opportunity.  GPA Grade Range from Application Assessment: A+  LSAT: 163, 86th percentile.   Regular applicant EC's: Worked in an MLA's Office for 8 months, interned for a provincial Minister of Education, tons of volunteering for a provincial political party, did an honours thesis during my degree, and worked as a policy researcher in the US.  Good luck to everyone and never give up! I've seen users in other spaces of this forum who like to make others feel insecure, don't let them deter you!
    • My best 2 years was 3.02, but this endeavor may be a waste of time and I fully understand that I should have dropped out rather than half-ass it for 5 years. But I need to know if discretionary boards would consider high 90's and 100's in full course load on top of a good lsat as enough evidence to admit?
    • I can't really afford Windsor. But I'm desperate to get into law school. As we know these days an undergrad degree is by itself a worthless scrap of paper. I understand that York and Toronto are out of the question, but I don't need to work on Bay Street, I have a dream of being a criminal defense lawyer in any capacity, even legal aid. I hope by showing that when motivated I am capable of high 90's and 100's as well as a good LSAT that I can impress the review boards and get in. I am unfortunately a white male and I know that doesn't help my chances for access but my illness was severe and kept me from taking my studies seriously. Now that I am focused I am studying 10 hours a day and breezing through all my courses. But I understand that sometimes it's just too late. Do you think it would sound like a sob story? Or would a severe mental illness qualify as discretionary/access? Any responses appreciated
    • Hello, To anyone who understands how discretionary works, I am wondering what the details of this category are and what schools I should apply to, as well as what the best wording to use in my letters.   I was diagnosed 2 years ago with severe mental illness. My GPA is terrible 2.60 however my last semester I got a 4.3 and I believe I can pull off another 2 before applying in November. If I can get a psychiatrist letter and score 170 plus on the LSAT, and write a compelling letter, both of which I believe are possible, do you think a full year of perfect grades along with an explanation of my poor GPA and a good LSAT would be enough to get into a more holistic school such as TRU or Lakehead, or even Dalhousie? Do you know if Dalhousie counts summer semesters in their "last 2 years" metric?    Sorry for the rambling. Any knowledge is appreciated on this subject  
    • When a business enters the market, it has to face a lot of challenges along with the opportunities it is relying on. One of the major threats to any business from any particular industry is that it will always have ownership threats if it is not on the list of Canada trademark office search. Trademarking your business means you will have a secure name under which you can do all your businesses without any worries. You will have the rights to the name and you can use it, however, you want. What is your opinion on this?
