2.76/166/172 - Canadian Law Schools?
« on: May 24, 2010, 06:43:19 PM »
With a 2.76 from Computer Engineering at UofT, do I stand a chance of being accepted to any Canadian law school?
My LSAT scores were 166 in Sep09 and 172 in Dec09.
Have some work experience but not much.

Thanks much.

You do.  Probably not UofT.  Splitters are hard to predict in Canada, I would send as many apps as possible, include safeties like Windsor, and, if possible, write an addendum to explain your subpar GPA.

You have absolutely zero chance at U of T - they won't take anyone with less than an A- average. You have a great LSAT and most Canadian schools only look at highest score, but that GPA is a killer. I'd rule out Western, Ottawa, Queen's and Osgoode most likely on account of that.

You should apply to Windsor, New Brunswick, Calgary, Manitoba, and Thomson River. Throw an application to Western and Queen's because you never no, but I doubt you'll get in.

What's your Last 2 years GPA? That makes a big difference, especially in the western provinces.
