It depends. You probably wont get into the top Canadian law schools (especially UofT) unless you have some mitigating circumstances that you could potentially include in an addendum along with your personal statements. Remember, a high 160 isn't really outstanding when you're applying to top schools, its within the average range of scores among the pool of applicants you'll be competing with - therefore, a high 160s score will hardly compensate for a low GPA. You might get into schools that average your top 2 years if you're able to pull off a 3.7+ this year. But your chances are still rather slim, since you'll average only about a 2.7 to 3.0. But I wouldnt recommend taking a victory lap, or splitting your final year into 2 easier/more manageable years. Adcoms in Canada prefer to admit applicants who have taken a full course load throughout their undergraduate degree - because everyone would be applying with a 4.0 if you could take partial course loads.Also, your major might matter to adcoms. Are you enrolled in a "soft" or "hard" sciences program? There are many exceptions made though, and your reasons for obtaining a low UGPA are your own, so don't let any of this discourage you from at least trying the real LSAT. I would say that your chances are very good if you manage a 175.
thanks!well I definitely will be making a victory lap and I guess i'll just have to wait and see if i can pull it off or not.Btw, if i were to repeat an LSAT test will it be averaged or does only the latest one count?
