how strong do you think my MY LSAT needs to be?

how strong do you think my MY LSAT needs to be?
« on: July 19, 2007, 10:20:23 PM »
hello

I am bit older than most applicants I think, almost 25. But I started to think about law school seriously in the past few months. I will write my LSAT this fall.

I have am honours degree in biochem from 2004, with a GPA of 3.7 on a 4.3 scale. How strong of an LSAT score do think i need to have a chance.

Also would the fact that I spent most of the last 3 years traveling and working have an impact? I get the sense that GPA and LSAT are everything that matters. I would appreciate some comments from people who are more experienced with law admission process in Canada

Thanks

I wasn’t thinking about Toronto or Osgood, but more along the lines of schools near my home. UNB (I am from Fredericton) or Dal?

Your GPA is UNB's median. I doubt the LSAT requirements are that stiff. UofT's median is 167 and I know it's probably the toughest. If you get a 166/167 you should be reasonably fine anywhere in Canada.

dunno... check the school's websites/call/email and ask about the median LSATs. Should give you an idea.

All I can say is do your best on the LSAT ...

otherwise your question is exceedingly vague

I would assume mid-160s, you'll definitely be fine. Worse than that, you still have a shot as well but its less of a guarantee.

Just do your best, study hard, etc, and let the chips fall where they may.
