171/3.61 Applying from Canada

Postby utbw » Sun Nov 11, 2012 2:38 pm

LSAT 171, GPA 3.61

I go to a top Canadian university, and after speaking with a Columbia rep at an LSAC Forum, it seems like they (and most likely others) recognize that Canadian schools tend to deflate rather than inflate grades. Not too sure how much of an impact this has on how they would view my GPA...

Applying to NYU ED; applied to 5 others in T-14, including Columbia, Penn, Duke, Georgetown, Boalt.

Although most or all T-14 law schools recognize that Canadian universities engage in grade-deflation, admitting those with deflated grades won't help their US News ranking. In my opinion, you need to broaden your list of law schools.

I also applied to four others lower ranked for safety

You will obviously get into Gtown, so I don't think you need to broaden your list if you want to go there.
