I am optimistic, and yes I do think a 3.8 GPA (95%) out of 4.0 (100%)from U of T is damn near gorgeous. I worked hard for the sh*t, so don't come talking that horseshit about "it really isn't that great".
P-155: for the love of Jesus, do the LSAT, get your mark and then come back here with your Harvard and Yale talk. You clearly have not done much research on this yet. In all honesty, you are setting yourself up for major disappointment if you think that if you go in 'with a straight mind' having studied you're going to end up in HYS territory - I've seen it happen many times. Plus, if you had actually done research, you would have found out that there really aren't any guarantees at Harvard or Yale, even with amazing grades (3.8 really is not that amazing) and an incredible LSAT. If it happens, then wonderful - go. But 99 times out of 100, it won't, so don't expect it or come in here citing faceless LSAC statistics talking about what you should be doing to 'plan' for it. Until you get your score all you're doing is deluding yourself with visions of non-existent grandeur.
Definetly. Hopefully, I can also attend a few of those seminars to boost my confidence. I'm assuming the LSAT is out of 180? How is 95% a bad score? I'm pretty sure you can push your luck with a 171, good GPA, excellent personal statement and outstanding EC's.
