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!

100% Ottawa

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!

    • Noted.  I will definitely consider UNB, although if you saw my transcript you would cringe, there's lots of 50's and 60's on there from a point in my life where I would have been satisfied with a business degree.  So I'm definitely relying on some of the more holistic schools lol.  I'm capable of much better than that but it's going to take some time or luck to "remedy my standing with God and men" as Machiavelli would say.
    • Queens won't take summer courses. Everyone else will. As for which credits they take, it varies a bit by school but your L2 is roughly your last 4 consecutive semesters. But again, it varies.  Also consider applying to UNB, they'll remove 25% of your worst marks if you've graduated. They will also give you bonus points if you are from the Maritimes. 
    • OK thanks for the help.  I'm also thinking about Dalhousie as long as I can keep my grades up, and Sask if I can do a good LSAT as well as applying some other schools on access with a psychiatrist letter due to the fact that I was diagnosed with severe mental illness and this has affected my grades until this past year, where things stabilised abit and I was able to pull off a solid semester and things also going well so far this semester.  I have some good academic references and have a knack for interviews so hopefully things will work out, if not I will try again in another year after getting my cGPA up a bit higher and working some EC's in there.  But no I'm not set on any particular school; from what I've gathered here any law school in Canada is a major blessing.  I hope to someday work as a defense lawyer and mental health advocate in Newfoundland.   Sorry for asking a billion questions, but do you know if L2 usually includes summer semesters/last 20 credits or if it means last 2 years literally?
    • A 3.8 and a 160 would be very respectable. As for ECs I can't think of too many options for you. Just try and represent yourself well in the interviews and have a solid PS. That should give you a good shot at Ryerson. And if those last credits bring your GPA or L2 up enough you may even try applying more broadly (I don't know if you're set on a certian area or not). 
    • Okay thanks. I have a 3.35 for my best 10 courses, with 10 to go before november, so I could possibly get that up to 3.6-3.8, so Ryerson is probably my best chance. What are some good extracurriculars I could do? I've been scoring various shades of 160 on the LSAT which is good. But debate club is closed due to covid and I'm not doing anything right now other than working at fast food and university. I will need something on there. I have a criminal record from a misspent youth so most volunteering is out.
