Studying for the LSAT / Well i got into the only two schools I applied to
« on: January 20, 2005, 04:11:04 PM »
I was accepted to UBC and U of Alberta, so I'm happy.  In the end, both schools used my higher score, which made my number seem a lot better:

UBC: 3.69 / 168 LSAT
UAlberta (based on last 60 credits) 3.78 / 168

I know this should go into the acceptances board but this (minus Canada) is the only board i ever actually talked on, just thought id give a shout out.

Law School Applications / Re: how much is an Ivy GPA worth?

Honestly admission officials for law schools are behind the times.  They seem much more interested in your numbers than your degree program, the school you came from or your mitigating circumstances.  That being said, Ivy League schools are not hurt too much by this due to grade inflation. 

In other professional programs like Optometry and Medicine i know these factors weigh in heavily.   And sometimes, due to average grades, not to the Ivy Leagues favour.

totally depends what pic you put up...not changing much but my hair cut, tan + shirt or no changes my score from a 7 to a 9.9.  Shrug.


Oh Canada! / Re: Transfer question
« on: December 28, 2004, 06:00:19 PM »
Easier to transfer from high rep schools to low rep schools.

Grades are a very important indicator + circumstance.

Good reasons:

1) family is moving
2) fiance/wife is moving
3) special focus the school provides

Any of those 3 + good GPA + not coming from a "lesser" school is a good chance of success transferring.


LSAT horror stories / Re: what if i can't do well
« on: December 28, 2004, 05:57:47 PM »
No offense, but honestly, if you cant do well enough to get a decent LSAT score (let us say 150-158) then perhaps you don't have the reading/thinking ability to handle law school.  The LSAT is not a complete gimmick.  If you have a high GPA with a 145-149 LSAT you still should be able to get in to some tier II and III schools (hofstra for example).  If you can't even score 145, there might be a problem.


LSAT horror stories / Re: Is 166 a bad score for T14 shcools?
« on: December 28, 2004, 05:55:06 PM »
3.96 gpa with a 166 is going to get you into some t14s.  Don't worry about it, seriously.  I just hope you applied early. 

The 3.96 is exceptional, and the 166 is high enough not to hurt their LSAT numbers.  You'll get in to a couple.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 7 point improvement...addendum?
« on: December 28, 2004, 05:50:23 PM »
The thing is, i didnt need to write it...i just felt like it.  My average of 163 (and my gpa is 3.755 applying too w00t) will get me into my school EASILY.  I just felt like having my score reported higher for an ego thing.
