Chances: 3.83/4 Ontario (3.9/4.3) 157 LSAT

Your index score = 3.83 / 4 * 0.6 + (157 - 120) / 60 * 0.4 = 0.82.

Looks good.

 

Would it be 3.83/4.3? Not 4.0?

Chances anyone for these stats + internship at law firm

Can you explain how you converted your GPA from 4.0 to 4.3?  The composite score is different if you use your 4.3 GPA vs your 4.0.

No I do not think so since its a different scaling

I believe they convert your grades to the 4.3 grading scale, and then use that for the index score. At least from what I’ve seen on here.

I am not sure about that.

Please check directly with DAL.

You are good if you have or you are going to have a 4 year undergraduate degree.

OK, but your score is different if you use the 3.9/4.3 number in the formula:

3.9 / 4.3 * 0.6 + (157 - 120) / 60 * 0.4 = 0.79

This is substantially different from:

3.83 / 4 * 0.6 + (157 - 120) / 60 * 0.4 = 0.82

I'm thinking that your GPA is likely higher than you think on the 4.3 scale, but I don't know how DAL does the conversion.  Maybe someone here knows?

It depends... if you have a lot of As and A+s it might be higher. Plug in all your marks to the link I posted earlier and I believe you should get your exact gpa as per their calculation. Also if you’re index score is 79 don’t fret. Calculating index scores from previous years acceptances there are plenty of folks who got in with an index score below 80, including many non-maritimers!

Love that for you. It should be higher than your 4.0 calculation then!

Technically they could be, but I haven't heard of any third years getting accepted here the past few years

I applied on The 29th and I got the confirmation email and everything and it did say it was submitted when I checked yesterday. But today it says processed today. My personal statement is not “checked off” neither is my transcript even though it was submitted. Is this normal

Yes! It can take a few weeks to show up on your end.

    • That's what extensions are for! I adjourned hearings, got extensions on written submissions and, like Douglas Adams said, listened to the whoooooshing sound that deadlines made as they flew by. We had our 2 year old home while daycare was closed from mid-March to August. My spouse is a health care professional and she still had a full client-load seeing them over video. Our compromise was that she had to give up Monday so she could be full-time toddler duty Saturday-Monday. The rest of the week, she worked 9-5 doing video sessions and I was on toddler duty. I would work evenings and weekends just to keep up. I only managed (to keep up with work) because I would put in 15 hour days Saturday-Monday and then got in 4-5 hours on days I was on toddler duty after she went to bed. It was an awful grind. It feels like we may be trending back in that direction with cases going up and I don't know how we could manage like that again. It feels harder now - at least when EVERYTHING was closed, opposing counsel, the courts, tribunals, etc. could relate because their kids were home too. Our toddler is back in daycare but we are debating pulling her out with cases on the rise. However, we both feel that people are less understanding now (in terms of extension requests or rescheduling client sessions for her) because it would be our choice to keep her home and they may not relate.  
    • What is the significance of having the undergrad completed at Ryerson?
    • UofT, Queens, Western, and maybe some other non-Ontario schools all started Fall 2020 in person with masks on. I don't see why this model wouldn't also be used once a decent portion of the population has been vaccinated. 
    • Fall 2021 - 75% in person Winter 2022 - 100% in person Barring some massive failure in the vaccine roll-out I don’t see a reason to have an online only semester. I personally think it would be safe to have students back even if they haven’t vaccinated our age group. The pressure on the hospitals should drop off significantly once the over 50 population is vaccinated. 
    • I know a really smart guy at UofT who was on the varsity rugby team and quit early on because he said it was "absolutely impossible" to balance the two. I also know of a now-graduated student who was a varsity figure skater throughout law school but also had very good grades - everyone on Bay St was after her lol
