Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!!

Was wondering if anyone could inform me on what my chances are with a 3.48 AGPA and a 163 LSAT?

Thanks in advance :)

I'll echo the above - Manitoba lays out the calculation (which isn't particularly complicated).  The more specific question is what your index score comes out as and if that is high enough.  Check the Accepted thread for last year to get an idea of what index scores ended up being accepted - If you already know your AGPA, you'll have an answer fairly quickly.

Just as a question, when calculating the AGPA would you input 4.0 or the actual number (eg. 85)

Here is the conversion table:

If your index is 76 you are in.

Yes that's the one I used, but yes I really hope so!! I am Indigenous but hoping my index is high enough that I don't have to wait for the Indigenous category deliberations in like March. :)

I've recently tried to calculate my AGPA and just have one question. From what I have seen on a gpa calculator im using (WhatsMyGPA.ca) Umanitoba issues credit hours of 1 and 3. How many credit hours would a full year course be then in my AGPA calculation? Surely it won't count thrice my one semester courses? 

Im from UVIC if that helps

As a UofM alum, I can say that a normal semester course is 3 credit hrs x 5 courses for full Course load if that makes sense, if it's a full year course, it's 6 credit hrs.

Hope that helps!

    • Our CDO told us last year that optional references letters really does mean optional reference letters. I’m not sure why that would have changed this year since all 1Ls will have one semester’s worth of grades.
    • It's been pointed out above, but Ryerson doesn't have an LSAT cutoff of 155.  The bulk of Ryerson's first class was admitted with an LSAT between 155 and 159, but ~17% scored between 150-154.
    • Thanks for your insight - appreciate it! I was actually thinking along the lines of family law as I have experience in this area and it may be easier to get clients in the beginning with legal aid being available. I'm also going to look into estates law as I'm interested in living in a smaller town. Thanks!!
    • @Luckycharm Woah you're the user that is really good at predicting. That's great for me I guess   Just a question. Are you saying 100% if I improve my score or are my current stats 100% getting me in?   
    • When I did the recruit, I applied to as many as possible. My strategy was that if I was fortunate enough to get more OCIs than I could handle, I could decide which firms to cut when deciding which OCIs to accept. That said, I guess if you’re adamantly opposed to certain firms (for whatever reason), you’re probably better off spending that time focussing on your applications for the ones you do want to work at. Edit: I don’t think I applied to more than 30/40 firms. I was really only interested in corporate law and I didn’t apply to any of the government or other positions.
