Hey! I'm a 3rd Year at a Canadian Uni double-majoring in Politics and Business, hoping to go to law school. My GPA is 3.7 (83%) and I took the LSAT once (164). My dream schools are McGill, UofT, and UBC. I also really like Queens, Osgoode, Ottawa, and Western.

I'm also bilingual, have summer finance jobs year 2 and year 3, and do a lot of volunteer work. A couple of awards (full scholarship year 1, dean's honours list every year, and a provincial award for civic service).

I am debating taking the LSAT again, esp bc McGill averages the score and bc they're removing games starting in August which is my best section, so it's a rush to write it for June. 

What do you think my chances might be? Thanks!

It depends on how well you think you can score on the LSAT compared to your current score. Mcgill's GPA and LSAT sits around 3.8 and 164-165 (average of all scores). See what your GPA is at the end of the school year, that could make the difference compared to writing the LSAT again.

Your right on UBC's GPA median and a few points below their LSAT. I think you're still competitive but getting a few points higher would give you more certainty.

Would need yo know your B3 GPA for UofT. You have a shot, but I would lean more towards no as it stands.

You're pretty much a lock at Queen's, Osgoode, Ottawa and Western.

Hey thanks so much, I appreciate the honesty. In terms of GPA, I've done a couple calculations and I don't forsee it going down, but I also think it's unlikely it'll go up. For LSAT, I think I am leaning towards retaking it, hopefully I can break into the 170s and that'll be good for UBC and UofT and the average will be good enough for McGill. Thanks for the advice!
