Chance me & should I retake LSAT (3.33, 3.66, 160)

Recommended Posts

Scored a 160 twice. Applied all over Ontario except Lakehead. PT’ing in the mid 160’s and hope to score this in January by working on RC. 

3.33 & 3.66 L2. Access category where applicable. Strong PS & references in my opinion.

1. Should I try my luck and write a 3rd time hoping to get into the mid to high 160’s? 

2. Will schools hold my file until the January score comes out, or is there a chance I’ll be admitted with the same double score that I have on file? 

3. Lastly please chance me for UofT, Oz, Queens, Western, Ryerson, Windsor, Ottawa

3.3 -3.4 CGPA & 3.65 - 3.7 L2, access category where applicable on 2 separate grounds, one of them explaining the slightly lower grades. Strong PS & references in my opinion.

Can you calculate your GPA, L2/B2 using this

3.33 gpa & 3.66 L2

Hard to predict "access"  I  try to predict assume you are applying general.

160, 3.33 GPA- Ottawa is GPA school. your GPA is weak for Ottawa. 50%

Queens  75% 3.66  B2 ? (What is your B2) slightly below 3.7  75%

Western 70% again L2 under 3.7

Ryerson - is your best bet- good luck, hard to predict Ryerson because this is their 2nd cycle.

Windsor- I don't predict Windsor.

U of t - 25% - B3 school.  under 25% 

OZ  -GPA school -  25%

Should you rewrite?  I don't see any downside for writing

Of course they value LSAT. But OZ is not a L2, B2 nor B3 school.  Even Ottawa values GPA more but they still look at your LSAT.

I think you misunderstood what I meant by "GPA" school.

I think i did. Do you mean that they value Cumulative GPA more than L2, B2 or B3? or that in general they give more weight to GPA than LSAT

OZ considers GPA in most cases. However, they may make some exceptions due to 'holistic" reasons.

    • Nobody's saying that, and I'm not sure who you're trying to impress with first-year physics concepts. Multiple people in this thread have science and engineering degrees. Rote memorization or basic scientific analysis isn't impressive, which is why we have unemployed and chronically underpaid PhD grads.
    • On m’a récemment dit que ça pouvait aller jusqu’en mai avant que toutes les demandes soient analysées!
    • Yup, search 'Osgoode Hall Law School - Class of 2024' on FB. 
    • I said being a good lawyer is a multifactorial trait. That means it relies on multiple genes and the environment. It's related to the topic of this discussion, nature vs nurture in the legal profession. I love the lawyers in here thinking their profession is the highest level of intellectual ability. Congrats, guys, you can read English quick, use a bit of deduction, apply the law to fact patterns. Consider looking up any topic in theoretical physics. Let me do it... Electric potential in electrostatics: Electric potential - Wikipedia Master this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalar_potential This: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tully–Fisher_relation Now compare to an equivalently basic topic in law - torts: "A tort, in common law jurisdiction, is a civil wrong[1] (other than breach of contract) that causes a claimant to suffer loss or harm, resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act. It can include intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, financial losses, injuries, invasion of privacy, and many other things. There's no comparison, the latter is readily understandable. I deleted what I had written before and never said anything much about biochemistry, but it requires a vast array of information beyond simply the genetic code that was posted. You need to be able to know organic chemistry, stereochemistry, biology, math, and finally their applications to cells. It's much harder than understanding "reasonably forthcoming"
