Chances? (3.5 cGPA, 3.73 L2, 160 LSAT) General

Recommended Posts

I would love to get either some assurance or motivation to rewrite. Feeling uneasy about sticking through with the 160 LSAT. My first year takes a toll on my cGPA but there is a strong upward trend where in my L2 where I only got two Bs, all As in my final year if that makes any difference. I also applied to Queens Osgoode and Ottawa I would love some input on my chances!

OLSAS converted ?

Not OLSAS converted yet, apparently to be posted in December for me. I used the lawapplicants.ca converter to estimate my GPA, hopefully it is accurate. I appreciate the response Luckycharm you're a legend! Happy to hear I can let some anxiousness go!

do the calculation here. Your chance may differ if OLSAS conversion results in lower GPA

I had pretty much exactly these stats. I got into Western and Ottawa and waitlisted at Queens and Osgoode.

Sorry to bother, can I ask what your exact stats were? I have a slightly higher cGPA and L2 but same LSAT and seeing you say you got waitlisted at Queens is a bit worrying.

3.57 cGPA, 3.7 L2, LSAT 160, taken twice, same score both times. I don't remember my B2 but it probably wouldn't be far off from my L2.

I believe mid-March for Western. Don't remember when for Ottawa, but it was after my Western admission

My stats were really similar to OP's:  3.51 cGPA, 3.7 L2, 161 LSAT.  Got into Osgoode (January), Western (January), and Queen's (March) last year.

Did you write part B for Oz?

I decided on Osgoode because of their generous bursaries.  Also, just to clarify, I applied last year and received acceptances this year.  
And yes, I did write Part B!

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
