Chances for 165 LSAT 4.0 GPA after drops?

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

any input is greatly appreciated here as I am growing increasingly paranoid by the day 🙃. Applied early December and application is currently under review. Only applied here and UBC (not smart I know) so all my eggs are in this basket. 
 

thank you for your time!

Definitely in.

Wow you are my hero responding to both my posts. I really appreciate your feedback here. Do we think things could be any different this year due to covid?

I don't think any COVID-related changes will be significant enough to affect your application. Your stats are excellent and it's safe to say that beyond any crazy extenuating circumstances, you're going to be accepted. When did you apply?

Your stats are so good I can't help but wonder if you're trolling all of us. 

If you're on the up-and-up then I'd be shocked if you didn't get in.

Well no trolling here. I know my GPA is good but I wasnt really sure how much that gets factored in compared to other things? Especially because I went to a small university. I also applied very late in the cycle so that was making me nervous as well. Thanks for responding :)

If you applied really late in the cycle that's probably the reason for the delay in hearing anything rather than anything to do with your stats. 

Again, would be surprised if you weren't accepted to both UBC and Victoria as you should meet their respective index score thresholds.

    • What even is a "good" lawyer? How can we deliberate over if "good" lawyers are born or made, if even within legal academia, the model of what a "good " lawyer is, is still actively being explored and contested. The answer truly depends on who you ask. 
    • Yeah, North America in 2021, what an awful place to be. Get some perspective for fuck’s sake. You remind me of the guys that work in construction and think safety should be treated as an afterthought. Have you ever considered  why you have the ability to express yourself so freely whereas elsewhere you wouldn’t? 
    • I don't know why I'm continuing to engage, but fuck it.  You were mocked (correctly) for making some very strange claims about genetics. I understand why you would take issue with that. No one likes to be mocked. But are non-lawyers being mocked here? I don't think so. I think it's just an objective assessment that lawyers do tend to have the qualities normally associated with intelligence.  I think that many lawyers are more intelligent than the average person. But that's not a value judgment. The particular kind of intelligence needed for law is valuable for practicing law effectively. But outside of being useful for practice, I accord it very little weight. I like and admire many people who aren't especially good communicators, and probably don't have the attention to detail for law. I know many lawyers who are very smart and excellent at lawyering, but who I do not particularly like or admire. Intelligence is just one thing. There are other qualities that are far more important. I care far more about a person's compassion, sense of humour, and self-awareness than whether they can write a persuasive brief. So when I say that law isn't a good fit for most, I don't mean it as smug or an insult. I just mean that law isn't a good fit for everyone. 
    • yo man relax. who hurt u? You might think we're insulting you, but your manner of speaking is very condescending. The fact that you posted and deleted comments (twice!) suggests that you know this, so stop pretending like everyone is 'taking a dump' on you. On topic: there's smart and not-so-smart people in every profession. In the case of law, medicine or PhD-level scientific academia, the floor is likely higher since you had to jump through some hoops to get there that are somewhat reliable indices of some intellectual capacity. Maybe everyone could theoretically be trained as a lawyer or doctor, but you'd probably have some pretty bad ones by the end.
    • You got there pretty early, then. I needed to collect a few STEM degrees and see how many of my peers ended up getting jobs where all they did was mix buffers and run assays that come in a box that are closer to following a basic recipe than developing an mRNA based vaccine. Fortunately, the inherent superiority of their biochem degrees and the fact that they had to learn electrochem material that they probably haven't thought about since halfway through undergrad continue to provide solace.
