Chances - Should I take Jan LSAT

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I know this might be getting annoying for some of you, but I was wondering what you think my chances for admission is for the upcoming cycle, as I am contemplating on whether I need to take the January LSAT. My goal is to attend either one of Osgoode, Western, Queens, or Ottawa. 

My CGPA as it stands is a 3.60, and I have a L3/L2 of 3.9 - 4.0 (these scores are not according to OLSAS). I just received my LSAT score and it was a 159.

 

Thank you in advance for all your help and time!

This is just my opinion, but I would only retake if I knew I had a genuine chance at a higher score. Where were you PTing at? If the 159 is around your average score and you haven't been able to break 160 consistently, I'm not sure that a retake would be worth it. Again, just my two cents and I'm curious to hear what others think.

Can you convert your GPA and L2  to OLSAS basis?

Honestly, I was PTing in the mid 160 prior to the exam. I thought I was doing really well up until the games. In the second game, I messed up one of the rules, which I did not realized until the fifth question of that game. When I realized I had messed up, I had to go back and fix the game and my answers, which took some time. This, in turn, left me with very little time for the rest of the two games and I had to kind of rush. It is kind of ironic because the logic games is one of my strongest sections, and it was that section that betrayed me 😂

I would retake. As someone who started off not finishing the games and had to do over a thousand (repeating some of the particularly hard ones maybe 12 times) I'm absolutely sure it always my known entity by the end and it probably saved my take even when my 'best section', RC, betrayed me lol. If I can do it I think you can!

Ugh yeah, that happens and it's really frustrating. I'd retake then, given that you can keep scoring in the mid-160s as you study again.

    • I honestly pray that some of the people on the adcoms are parents so they actually understand the determination involved in having small kids and even *applying* to law school.  I'm in the same boat though, just trying to convince at least one school to let me in 😅 Give me a chance - I can do this, I promise!! I know it! 
    • Simple and funny one https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onsc/doc/2013/2013onsc5401/2013onsc5401.html?resultIndex=1 Purchaser sues seller for not disclosing that a commercial building is haunted Most law profs use this case as a way into caveat emptor and latent defects
    • ugh this is my feeling too. I have somewhat mediocre stats (although I think some valid reasons for my lower GPA). But I was fairly confident that I could convince at least ONE school that I am law school-competent, given my work experience/maturity/adulting lol! I mean, I’ve kept two small humans alive 😆 While still doing all the other school/career/volunteering..  🤞 I guess!    **just realized this is under University of Ottawa.. where I did not apply lol oops So, this is more of a general statement as a mature student, than related specifically to University of Ottawa. I read posts on this site  by Most Recent, rather than by school 🤷🏻‍♀️ So didn’t notice this before commenting! 
    • That sounds very convenient for my situation! I’m excited to hear that   Thanks for sharing this!
