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'd get better responses on TLS (http://top-law-schools.com). However based on your stats, i'd say unless you're a URM i.e., (Black, Mexican American, Native American or Puerto Rican)  you'd maybe be a WL-ding at Harvard. Yale and Stanford are harder to predict but they are not splitter friendly and care more about your GPA than Harvard so rejected from both of them as well.  However if you're a URM, you'd be in at Harvard, most likely rejected at Yale (even if you're a minority they like a high GPA, at least a 170 LSAT (which you have covered) and strong softs), not sure about Stanford.

CGPA: 3.5

L2: 3.9

LSAT: 162, contemplating on retake but fear that I will score lower or will only improve by a couple of points at best. Looking for advice on whether I should retake. Can I get into any schools with my current stats?  

 

I'm planning to apply to all Ontario schools

I have a Masters of Science and my grad school marks are in the A+ range. 


Undergrad (in science):


cGPA- 2.95


L2-3.44


B2-3.44


 


I have not written the LSAT yet nor studied, did a diagnostic and scored 165, hoping after studying I can get in 170 range.


EC's fairly extensive: couple publications in science journals, student society exec's, international research, etc. 


Do I have any chance at all with such a low cGPA?

you should be in everywhere except UofT, unless you write a statement that blows the admissions committee off their feet. I have a friend who did this with lower stats (on the GPA end, identical LSAT).

Hey all, 

 

I will be taking my first stab at the LSAT this Saturday, with minimal prep under my belt. I am already registered to re-write in December. 

 

I have applied to all of the Ontario Law schools, excluding Lakehead. 

 

CGPA: 3.51

Best 2: 3.6 (currently in my 4th year at UofT)

 

Expected LSAT: 156

 

Most stats I have looked at make me very skeptical about my chances. I have substantial WE + EC and very strong referees....will those help?

 

Thanks!

Why wouldn't you prepare for LSAT? With a 156 and 3.51 you won't get too many offers. Maybe Windsor will bite.... If your GPA was higher then Ottawa would potentially accept you with a mid 150 LSAT. EC often won't make up for poor stats. Sorry

cGPA: 3.91

B3: 3.94

B2: 3.97

 

LSAT: 162 diagnostic. Suppose 163-166 on the real thing. 

 

Supposing you score around where you're practicing at, you'll get in everywhere with the exception of U of T.  Even then, they'll probably give you some consideration on the basis of your grades, but it's unlikely you'd get admitted.  If that 162 should turn into 165+, you'll be admitted everywhere.

If you are scoring at 162 on a diagnostic, you can probably score in the 170s with practice. Hell, if you are diligent and committed, you can probably score in the low to mid 170s and apply for harvard standford and yale. Tons of people score in the 145-150 range and can score around mid 160s for the actual LSAT, I'm sure a a 10-15 point jump isn't out of your league. I am sooo soo jealous of your diagnostic.

If you're saying you scored a 165 cold, then I would say with some preparation you could easily be scoring in the mid-170s with a few months of solid preparation.  That would obviously go a long way towards mitigating your lower grades, so that is where I'd start, perhaps along with considering schools that drop your worst credits.  Given a high enough LSAT, though, I wouldn't be surprised if you attracted some interest from one or more of the non-U of T schools, especially if you're a few years removed from undergrad.

I'm aiming for law schools in Ontario (Western, Windsor, Queen's, Osgoode, UofT, Ottawa) but hoping to stay in Toronto which is definitely a stretch. Here are my stats:

 

CGPA: 3.42
B3: 3.52
B2\L2: 3.65

LSAT: 163 

 

Chances?

I think your chances are pretty solid. 

 

My guess would be In: Western, Queens. You fall near the average cGPA/L2/LSAT for these two schools so you should be okay. (Ottawa maybe later on because they prefer slightly higher GPAs)

Maybe: Oz, Windsor (your stats are good for Windsor but they can be so fickle)

Out: UofT

Thank you! I'm redoing the LSAT in Dec. and am currently preptesting at 167-170 range. I have had a high leadership position at a large student club as well as some volunteer and summer work experiences in my field of study. If I do end up testing in that range in December, do you think Osgoode would be a nearly definite in (perhaps later in the cycle?) and would I potentially have a chance at UofT?

    • 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"          
    • Hi there,  I'd be interested in buying the Loophole! I've DM'd you.
    • You need like an 83% high school average to get into an aerospace engineering programs in Canada. It's amusing that you're making a subsequent qualifier with " or NASA engineer". I mean that's the equivalent of saying anyone can be a lawyer, but not everyone can work for Morgans. Which is absolutely true, and the sentiment applies to basically every job.
    • Hey, recently accepted my offer. Is there an official FB group that I can join as a 1L? 
    • Thankfully I did get in! I actually did start one for this year. However, it is admittedly a mess as I lost interest after realizing they were clearly deviating from the suspected index formula. I now do not have the time to fix/continue with it. Hopefully someone will do it for next year's applicants.
