  1. Thanks for the replies everyone
  2. Chances at Osgoode, Western, Queens, Ottawa, and Dalhousie?
  3. Honestly it feels like a bit of a coin flip at this point. My preptests leading into the exam were above what I wanted to score, but i didn't sleep the greatest the night before (nerves). However, I felt pretty good the day of the test so at this point I will just have to wait and see.
  4. I know, but that stupid little voice in the back of my head called ocd keeps telling me to check my email, even though I know I have a while to wait.
  5. I am moving into the stage of obsessively looking at my email box for my score like this: https://www.google.ca/search?q=bart+simpson&source=lnms&tbm=isch#tbm=isch&q=simpsons+lenny+serious&imgdii=DzEh4lya54KUyM:&imgrc=VwyPCNq2naaeFM:
  6. Hi, I am planning on taking the February LSAT. Up to this point, I have only been focusing on the scored sections of the test. Can anyone give me some tips on how to prepare for the writing sample. I understand that it is not scored but I am assuming that it would be unwise of me to not prepare for it. Are there any resources you guys found particularly helpful?
  7. My Course Load

    Hey guys, I am currently in my fourth year (kind of) at U of T completing an English Specialist and a History Minor. Here is my predicament. In my first year I took a full course load (five courses) and ended the year with a GPA of 3.74. I was set to begin my second year when over the course of the summer my sister became very ill, and passed away right before school began. As I was not ready to jump right back into the swing of things, and at the advice of my family and psychiatrist, I decided to take a semester part time ( one course). I was planning on taking five courses during the winter semester of that year. However, if I did that I would have had to pay the tuition fees of a full time student because I would have taken a total of three credits (1/2 in the fall semester, 2.5 in the winter semester). I did not want to do this because I would be paying close to seven thousand dollars, even though I was basically a part time student that year. In order to pay on a "per course basis" I signed up for four courses for the winter semester. By the end of the year my cGPA rose to a 3.79. I also took a summer school half year course which brought my cGPA up to a 3.8. After my second year I had two options for completing the rest of my degree. My first option was to take two more years with five courses per year, and one extra semester in a fifth year with five courses. My second option was to take three more years to complete my degree, at the rate of four courses a year. At the moment, I have opted to take the second of those two options. During my third year I took four courses, and brought my cGPA up to a 3.82. Assuming I am able to keep my GPA at this level, and get a strong LSAT score, will law schools have an issue with my course load? Also, I have a question about my course selection in my third year. While I had technically been at U of T for three years, because of the number of credits I had earned in my second year, I was still only considered a second year student. That year, I took a 3rd year English course, a second year History course, a second year English course, and a 100/200 level Astronomy course (strictly for breadth requirement). The astronomy course was an elective I eventually needed to take, and the history course was meant to open up third year history courses to me. Will law schools care that I had a low number of upper year courses in that year, or will they see that I am capable of handling upper year courses because of my fourth and fifth years. Currently I am taking one fourth year course, two third year courses, and one 200 level course. Next semester I will be taking three third year courses and one second year course. Next year, I expect to have a very similar course load.
