From lurking this forum I seen that AA males get a nice boost, however, i was wondering if thats the case for Black Canadians (parents born in africa, came as refugees)
I have a 3.3 GPA in Biology from U of Toronto, (17th ranked in the world, tough bell curve C- first year class avg, C+ in 3rd year)
Strong upward trend ( y1 3.0, y2 3.2, y3 3.
probably can get gpa up to 3.35 by the end of the fall semester.
I havent wrote the lsat yet, and havent finised the LGB and LRB, but i took a couple timed tests off my laptop and scored about LG -8 LR -5 RC -7 in the low 160s. I was reading off a computer screen and timing was a bit of an issue most likely due to the fact that you read slower off a screen.
I know with 3 months of studying i can definately crack into the low 170s. I know this is alot of speculation, and id only go to an american school in the T6, if not id rather stay in canada.
DO you think i have a chance? and would i get the urm boost? and what lsat would make me competitive at harvard, columbia, nyu?
