Predict-O-Matic For Ontario Law Schools

Recommended Posts

160 for western ottawa queens, although i have friends with your CGPA who got in those schools with lower LSAT's, albeit late.

 

 maybe the same LSAT for osgoode

 

163-164+ for UofT.

 

UoT recommends retaking anything less than a 164, and the median L3 is 3.9. I would say he/she would need to be closer to 167 to be competitive.

that's probably good advice, i just remember seeing a bunch of 163-166's getting accepted in the UofT forum.

Aim for the highest score you can get.

 

Of course lol. But, in general, what LSAT score would increase my chances per school?

CGPA: 3.85 (adjusted from York's scale, my transcript is all A's/A+'s aside from one B+, I don't know if that makes a difference)

LSAT: 166

 

I'm planning to apply to Osgoode, Queen's, Western, Windsor and U of T

CGPA: 3.7

best two years: 3.9

LSAT: 158

 

Looking at Osgoode, Western, Queens and Ottawa

 

In at Ottawa, out at Osgoode, likely out at Western and Queens.  160+ on the LSAT would get you an offer at all four schools.

Enjoy your pick, you'll be admitted everywhere with the exception of Windsor as they'll assume you'll get in elsewhere.

I'm quoting myself here and I know this is for Ontario schools but could anyone shed some light on my chances at top US schools (HYS) I'm assuming my GPA holds me back quite a bit.

You might be more likely to get informed responses if you were to post a "chances" thread in the U.S. and other Foreign Schools subforum.

Based on my perusal of TLS and LSN, I would say you're definitely out at YS and almost certainly out at H.  I think you'll do quite well from CCN on down, likely even getting some money from lower T-14s like Cornell, Duke, and especially Northwestern which typically loves splitters.

    • 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.
