Cycle are odd, I ended up desisting to do my JD in Canada, from ever I was out right rejected by every T14 other then Cornell and Columbia(I was waitlist until aug and rejected) so one really can't tell

I LOVE UVIC for anyone that wondering from last cycle and very happy I'm attending here


This scares me. What were your numbers? Even though I will gladly take an acceptance from Cornell.

LOL. I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully all of you guys get HYS and leave room at the mid to lower T14 for me :lol: .

Checking in yet again. Missed my Oct. goal, but I'll be applying with 3.21 (3.31) 153/162/166 and 3 years work experience. Good luck everyone!

LSAT: 156 (Should I retake in Dec)
GPA: 3.1
UG: UC Berkeley

Where should I apply? My friend got into Wisconsin with the same exact numbers. Hoping I have the same luck.
Option A: Apply now see what schools i get into. If I don't like it take it in june and reapply
Option B: Retake LSAT in Dec. and apply for this cycle with late apps (although it would be tough with finals, apps, and LSAT studying)

Insight Please?


You need to retake. I started off at 142 (cold diagnostic) and started hitting high 160s after two months of studying. My LSAT didn't go that great (164) because I didn't fix small issues. There is no reason for you to not retake, especially with a 3.1 GPA. Just my two cents.

Is Cuban URM? I didn't think, for law schools, that it was considered one . . .
