Where to apply?

Postby umarzulqarnain » Mon Nov 28, 2011 7:41 pm

I have a CGPA of 2.7
An lsat score of 160.
I'm 23 and have been working toward my undergraduate degree full time for the last 4 years, along with full time work.
I have over 4 years of full time professional experience.


Any suggestions for a tier 1 school that may offer a scholarship with these stats?
Preferably close to Ontario however anywhere works.

Youre going to have a hard time getting acceptances to T1s with those stats, and almost definitely will not get scholly money. Retake if this is what you want.

my PT average was 169-171 but test day I failed horribly on LGs (20-30% correct I believe). So I am definitely retaking in feb.

Are the chances really that slim with this score?
even as a urm. I figured full time school and work at the same time made up for the low scores.

If you're an URM, you can get into a T1 with a strong application but retaking is definitely a good idea. Good luck in February.

If youre a URM youll get into a T1, but full time work doesnt make up for low scores.
