Hello everyone. I hope you all are well. I am new to the Canada Law Forum. I just graduated from the University of Waterloo with an 82.10% which is considered a distinction at Uwaterloo. Upon calculating my GPA using the OLAS calculator, here are my stats as follows. I just wanted to know if this GPA is competitive for most schools. Also, I am yet to give the LSAT and plan on applying for the 2024 cycle. Please let me know your thoughts. I also have done various internships in Human Resources.

Cumulative GPA (CGPA):3.50

Last two years (L2):3.47

Last three years (L3):3.57

Best two years (B2):3.77

Best three years (B3):3.64

This GPA will put you at a disadvantage for non-B2 Ontario schools. Not an insurmountable disadvantage, but a disadvantage. I would feel pretty confident that you would get in somewhere if you applied to every common-law school in Canada with your GPA and a 160 LSAT.

But "competitive for most schools" (defined as "likely having a fair amount of choice if you applied to every common-law school in Canada") probably requires like a 164, 165. And there are some schools where you likely still would not be competitive with a score like that. Just aim to do as well on the LSAT as you can and see where that gets you.
