hp_geo is right. I was sloppy and, I guess, unintentionally generous as Dean.

Gotta be careful. Such mistakes could give you big headaches when you write programming code in the future.

Hey guys...random question here.  I go to school in Canada, but am American and know next to nothing about Canadian law schools. :-[  My good friend really wants to go to U Ottawa.  She has a good GPA, but only a 157 LSAT.  Does she have any sort of realistic chance?

What's a "good" GPA?

Sorry, should have specified.  I think probably around an 84, which is quite high for my school.

I also recommend she post on lawstudents.ca c/o WhoWhere.. he/she seems to have compiled a pile of data to make that sort of prediction in a manner probably more qualified than that of a lot of us.

ok, random question here.

how can canadian schools focus so much on gpa instead of Lsat?

do canadian ug's have less grade inflation?

Yup. Grading is relatively consistent across schools.
