Predict-O-Matic For Ontario Law Schools

Recommended Posts

I want to make sure I understand what you're saying fully

 

in your opinion am I out at all three of Osgoode, Western, and Queens?

 

Or out at Osgoode while Western and Queens is a maybe?

 

I may be reading to much into a comma here. 

Thanks for the response. 

As it stands you're probably in at Ottawa (CPGA heavy school) and Windsor, chances at Queens, Western and Oz are not great, that LSAT score is really holding you back. Don't waste that CPGA, IMHO should re-write (try to hit at least 160) and apply again next cycle if you want to get into Oz, Western or Queen's.

Ah, the issue of the lack of oxford comma! yes, that poster means you are out at all three ...

 

Also, sick cgpa! If you re-write in June or October and can get a 160+, you'd be in at most schools (I think). Depends on how things go for you this term =) 

 

All the best!

 

And it's hard to tell definitively who is in or out, as evidenced by accepted/rejected threads. I mean, one can have an idea, but it's hard to say for certain!

In quickly at Osgoode. 50/50 at U of T - just a few more LSAT points on a rewrite would put you in a much stronger position there.

 

I really want to get in U of T. It's a real bummer that I scored a few points below their LSAT median. Does it help if I'm a U of T undergrad? I heard that they consider school difficulty as well.

Not "3-4 additional LSAT points" help, I don't think. A strong PS would. But there is nothing to lose with a June or October rewrite.

Hey just got my BA from McGill and thinking about studying for the LSAT through Kaplan.

What are my chances to get into the following schools - Queen's (really want to go here), Western, Dalhousie, Ottawa, U of Calgary, and UBC.

 

GPA - 3.23

Last 2 - 3.65

 

Pretty much no extracurriculars and softs on my end. I volunteered at a student bar for a year. Made the Dean's Honour List in my last full year of study.  I'll have 5 months of working experience with RBC Wealth Management since graduating in December.

 

What LSAT score would I need for these schools?

 

EDIT:  Forgot this was a predict-o-matic for only Ontario law schools.

Thanks. So the bottom line is that I got to stfu and try harder for the June LSAT. I'll heed this advice.

Hah, just keep going. Think of it this way, the harder you work now, the more comfortable you will be when you submit your application in the fall. (Also, you could very well get into U of T with your current stats).

161-163 for Queen's and Western. UBC uses an index formula so use that to estimate the LSAT required.

In first year of the Ivey business school at Western. I could probably get into the dual degree and go to Western next year but I want to finish Ivey and then try for a Toronto Law School. It's a risky move but I think I would do much better living at home and going to Osgoode or U of T then doing the Ivey/Law dual program while all my friends are in their fourth year. 

 

cGPA: 3.6

Last 2: 3.65

LSAT:168

EC's: Will be president of one of the largest fraternities on campus, working at a mutual fund this summer, ran my own business for two years at school (hockey league with 200 players) and about to do Osgoode cup and could be on the executive of the Ivey law club next year. 

 

My GPA in fourth year will be above 3.7 but I don't know how they take fourth year marks into account when you apply.

In at all except U of T, which you have a chance for but they look at your Best 3 years. You'll definitely get into Osgoode and if you just want to stay in Toronto, I would rest easy.

You're in your third year?  How are you so sure of your GPA next year?

Probably because of Ivey's curve.

If your stats are otherwise enough for acceptance, your 4th year grades won't be viewed. Many offers are sent out before Fall marks come out. If not, admissions may wait until your 4th year Fall semester marks are in to consider/reconsider you.

    • It is going to be online for sure. We aren't going to vaccinate enough people by then and the threat of variants is too high. There is no way universities will be in person for fall 2021. 
    • UBC has no problem accepting 3rd year candidates provided you have the requisite credits. Are you sure you don’t want to finish your degree? I know some people who’ve expressed regrets about not finishing their degree but it’s not otherwise a hindrance in getting a job, all things being equal. 
    • @Evander1992, with a 175 you should be able to get into law school somewhere. But are you prepared to abandon your part-time academic lifestyle and focus hardcore on academics full time?
    • Félicitations à vous tous!! Je commente juste au cas où pour les personnes toujours en attente : il est complètement normal d'être acceptés dans les 2ième et 3ième choix avant de recevoir un quelconque avis dans le premier choix, comme expliqué plus haut. Votre acceptation n'influe pas votre premier choix que je présume être le droit. Comme le choix est prioritaire, si, par exemple, votre choix 3 est sciences politiques, alors vous risquez d'être admis très rapidement étant donné que le programme accueille beaucoup d'étudiants chaque année, comparativement au programme de droit qui a une capacité limitée et beaucoup de demandes.  Il ne faut pas non plus trop paniquer maintenant ; les réponses peuvent s'étaler sur une longue période. Il se peut que certains d'entre vous n'aient une réponse qu'au printemps ou en été. À titre d'exemple, j'ai déjà été mise en liste d'attente auparavant dans un autre programme, et je n'ai été officiellement acceptée que près de 2-3 semaines avant le début des cours! L'attente est très difficile, mais ne perdez pas espoir.  Bonne chance à vous tous !
    • This is a bit of a more complicated question than it may seem at first glance. The tl;dr version is that, yes, it is possible to get into law school in 3rd year, and your GPA/LSAT is good enough to do so. Considerations: First of all, it depends which school you are applying to. U of T, for example, looks at your B3 (best three years) and is also the most competitive school in Canada. On the other hand, Ryerson looks at your B20 (best 20 courses in total) and therefor will be more accepting of a person with a decently consistent GPA over three years. If you don't care what school you get into, then you can probably get an acceptance in 3rd year. If you are serious about this, you need to take a hard look at each of the law schools you are considering individually. Would you be looking at schools all across Canada? Additionally to point #1, the same student who would get an acceptance to a law school in 3rd year would get more acceptances after completing the entire 4 years of undergrad. So you might literally be depriving yourself of going to the law school you want to go to just because you feel motivated to rush the process right now. The next factor is whether you want to cut your undergrad experience short just to get into law school earlier. Most threads I have read on this forum encourage you to enjoy your undergrad while you can, since it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thirdly, it makes a difference if your university allows for a degree to be completed after 3rd year (sometimes known as a general BA) with a 4 year degree being known as an Honours BA (not to be confused with a BA with Hons). Some law schools that accept three year degrees still want that degree to be completed and not merely consist of three years towards a 4 year degree. One factor in favour of applying in third year is that doing so does not prevent you from applying again the following year if your law school admissions offers are non-existent or not appealing to you. However, this does cost significant money and effort (to apply to law schools two years in a row). My overall opinion is that you should complete your 4 year BA before applying to law school.
