LSAT Score Needed with 3.12cGPA, 3.23L2

Recommended Posts

What score would be needed with a 3.12cGPA, 3.23L2?

I've applied to Osgoode, Ottawa and Windsor.

My GPA is lower because I focused less on my studies and more on volunteering(and wasn't the most focused student tbh). My personal statement and volunteer history are fairly solid, including a year volunteering in Central America. I'll be three years out of my undergrad by the time Fall 2021 semester starts.

I just got my second LSAT score back and its much lower than I wanted. (152). Any ideas on what LSAT score would be needed for these schools?

(*posted it in the general section since it has three schools, instead of making three seperate posts)

In this year's Osgoode Accepted thread, only two people posted with a CGPA equal to or less than yours. One had a 3.03 and 161, but also had an L2 of 3.87. The other had a 3.0 and 159, but also had an MA. I suspect you'll need a mid-to-high 160s for a shot.

I would say high 160s.

For reference, I applied two years ago with a 3.3 cGPA and 3.4 L2 with a 153 and was rejected from all Ontario schools (except Windsor Dual).

If you don’t get in this cycle, you could wait a couple of years and apply as a mature student. A few schools have that category (I can’t remember which I applied as mature, and which as ‘discretionary’ because I’m over 30). Usually defined as someone who’s been out of school for 5+ years. Anyways, apparently they are more forgiving or GPA and look to your resume (and LSAT, which you’d have time to work on). Just a thought!

    • I actually disagree on this one. Normally I would say some job experience in 1L summer (never underestimate customer service jobs!) would look better but I think in a COVID world where there’s a shortage of jobs or not everyone can physically go out and work due to health concerns, it’s completely okay to not work this summer. As long as you spend your summer doing something you can talk about, like what @lewcifersaid, you’re set. So that could be taking up some new hobbies, reading, helping care for a family member. I really think employers will be mindful of this during the current and next recruit cycle. 
    • What I was taught from PowerScore was to simply take the allotted time and divide it by the number of questions in the section. If you immediately are struggling with a question, go to the next question. Keep doing this til you reach the end of the section THEN go back and re-try the questions you struggled with. If you have no time, just make an educated guess and move on. It's a bad use of time to get stuck on a difficult question - plow through the easier ones to guarantee you score those points and come back to the hard ones at the end.
    • I just sent them an email. Hopefully they can be of some assistance. 
    • If anyone is able to assist, when writing the LSAT how long should each question take, per section to achieve a higher score in the 160's? Currently looking to see how long each question should take when solving for the answer. As always all responses are appreciated, but preferably those who have already taken the test before in the past.
    • Do you maybe not French? Seems honestly like the only possible reason why someone with this profile would get rejected! Your GPA is .22 above their average/median (can't remember which) for gosh sake!
