  1. games

    Practice, practice, practice. Go through PT 1-30 and focus on identifying game-type and what you're required to do. You don't even have to do the actual full game. Just focus on setting everything up and identifying what you have to do. Bonus marks if you do the full game. You should get to the point where you're able to almost immediately identify what you need to do, and eventually get to the point where you're able to customize a game board for some twist games. Feel free to PM me if you want some more directed advice on games. I struggled a lot with games when I started, but eventually got them down to -1/0 every time (166 final).
  2. LSAT sections

    When I initially self-studied (166 final score), I would do a day of studying (or two) in one book, then switch to the next. I was lucky in that I didn't have to prepare as much for LR as I did for LG/RC. I think doing one book at a time would definitely lead to you forgetting some things from each book. You should probably be referencing each book throughout your study anyway. Personally, I ditched the books for my self-study once I had transformed their methods into what worked for me. Doing one book at a time seems like a bad idea, to me.
  3. I think that's just the default notification everyone gets on the portal. It means, as far as I can tell, something along the lines of, "We'll get back to you sometime between now and August." I had this notification and got an interview request. It still shows the same thing. All you can do is sit tight and wait for them to get back to you.
  4. LSAT score needed....

    With a 3.8/165 you're almost guaranteed admission from most schools. Getting a 165 isn't easy. But if you can manage it, you should be good.
  5. Windsor Rejected 2018

    That's so strange. That's probably the issue, I guess.
  6. Windsor Rejected 2018

    I wish I got an e-mail. I've had nothing from them all year (no acknowledgement of application, nor an e-mail about my subsequent rejection), other than one e-mail saying my information was mishandled and leaked. Disappointing to say the least.
  7. With respect to PS's Logic Games, I found the way it set up the very basic games to be pretty good, and I used it for my 166 run. Their Reading Comp is notoriously poor, and the LR average. I think it's a decent start for prep. It's all really about trying out different things and figuring out what works for you.
  8. Yes; however, I was suggesting that it was a bit strange that the difference between a 166 (93.2) versus 170 (97.4) should be a significant increase in your value to a school. For Windsor, it isn't. I do get what you're saying, and it does make sense for scores in the 170+ range.
  9. Humber in the left-handed writing room was by far the best LSAT experience I've had. Run as fast as you can away from Madonna CSS, it's absolute garbage, and UofT is a great writing place. Edit: I haven't been to the two places you mentioned, but really you should stick with UofT or Humber rather than gambling on a random center.
  10. Windsor doesn't care about your LSAT once it reaches a certain point (I'm making up a number, but let's say 165) when it comes to increasing chances. As in, a 166 is not "better" than a 165 for them. I'm in a similar boat at 3.09/166. Even with the 166 and a slightly better GPA, I'll be lucky if I get in anywhere. Having spoken with Windsor admissions, they've basically told me that even if I got a 170+ it wouldn't matter with respect to increasing my chances of getting in (which is absurd, but that's Windsor). So, what are your chances with a 3.0/165, with no mitigating circumstances and average ECs in Ontario? Extremely low. Also, keep in mind that getting a 165 is very difficult to do, and the vast majority of test takers never come close to scoring this on test day.
  11. Shitty GPA (2.24) but Awesome LSAT (160)

    Most likely will. 2.24 is incredibly hard to overcome, though, and you need to be mindful of that. Unless you're saying your disabilities make it impossible for you to do well grades-wise, you really need to focus on the next year and a half.
  12. Shitty GPA (2.24) but Awesome LSAT (160)

    Some tough love for you: No. A 160 is great, yes. It is not nearly anywhere close to being enough to make up for a 2.24. I have 3.09/166 and I'm looking at not getting in anywhere. You need to get your act in gear for the remainder of this year, and next year, as some schools will focus on your last two years of study. Seriously. If Law School is what you want, you need to get to work.
  13. UNB is extremely generous. They drop your lowest 25% of courses, no matter the year.
  14. Windsor Rejected 2018

    Windsor has rejected several 170+ lsat people. While people tend to post on forums about acceptances, most people probably don't go out of their way to post rejections.
  15. If you get a rejection, nothing changes on OLSAS. The website should only update if you get an acceptance.
