Case Western Reserve / Re: Attending in the Fall
« on: May 02, 2005, 01:43:11 AM »
hey folks, i'm also a cleve native, well cleveland heights.  Cleveland heights is nearest to the school that is not in the city of cleveland some areas of the cleve. hts. are walkable, others aren't.  However, if you visit www.clevelandheights.com/relocation.asp, the city can help you find a place. 

about extracurriculars, once you get here you'll be able to best judge how much is too much.  The first semester is stressful so something that is not related to torts, contracts, crim or core helps, obviously too much hurts.  everyone has their own balance.

Wow, thanks a lot for the help. That is a lot of insight to some questions i had. I will be doing some more research on my own towards each individual school but it is sure uplifting to hear that i do have a somewhat good chance at some schools such as U of A.

Anyways thanks again

thanks for the advice, i actually posted on both here and lawstudents.ca but so far you have given me the best answer. I graduated with over 60 credits in my final two years, I think 66 to be exact. Will this have a positive or negative impact on their decision? I also have other additional courses under my belt such as the Canadian securities program, Canadian Investment funds program and my real estate license. Would these be considered as EC's? I know volunteer work is a positive and therefore have begun volunteering with the conservative party of Canada. 

Truthfully, it is only my first two years that i think will be detrimental to my admission, but i am willing to go to whatever school i get into. These first two years are veyr oor though as even though i think my gpa was 2.7. There are also  a couple of F's from my first year (I had a lot of maturing to do when i got of high school).

thanks again for the advice/opinion

Hey guys,

I just wanted to ask a quick question as i have recently gotten serious about law school. I wanted to know whether or not i have a chance to at law school.

I recently wrote my lsat and scored 160 on it, but have some quite poor marks from my first two years of my UG as i was immature and a poor student.

I graduated with a 3.6/4 in my lats 2 years(honours) with a bachelor of commerce but my cgpa would be much lower as i only had a 2.7/4 for my first two years.

Do i stand a chance at any school within canada or am i going to need to rewrite my last and have a 165+ because of my first two years?

thanks in advance, i know nobody here knows the answer whether i will be accepted but is it a good idea to even apply at this point?
