  1. Open House

    Anyone going to the open house tomorrow and bringing guests/parents?
  2. Ask a 1L student

    I was wondering if 1st year courses are full year or semestered? What is the breakdown for grading (100% final or a midterm and a final)?
  3. Ask a 1L — 2018 Edition

    Can anyone speak to the breakdown of 1st year? Specifically if courses are full year vs. semestered as well as the grade breakdown for 1st year courses (100% final vs. midterm and a final)? Thanks!

  10. 7sage is awesome - really helped me second time around with the LSAT. Be sure to revisit videos throughout your studies. Especially for different question types on LR. Sometimes viewing the same video lesson a month later will be completely different (ie new perspectives an that "ah ha" moment"). As for daily routines, as simple as this is - what really helped me was going to bed at the same time and waking up at the same time (while being sure to get 7-8 hours of sleep). This especially helped me fall asleep without stress the night before the test. Getting your sleep schedule down takes longer for some than others so make sure to do what feels right for you. It is amazing how differently you can perform/focus for long periods of time with a tired brain vs. a rested one. I also made sure to eat fairly healthy especially leading up to the test in order to avoid sugar crashes or have an upset stomach.

    Did you get an email or was it on the student centre?
  14. Score Cancellation?

    I agree - don't cancel! It's easy to feel like you messed up but maybe you will surprise yourself. Try to reflect how you did on each section individually without focusing on your section 1 washroom break. Ask yourself some of these questions when deciding: Did I finish the # of questions in x amount of time that I usually do? Did I misbubble? How did I feel about the sections after the 15 min break? Was I calm and focused on all other sections (excluding sec 1)? It's pretty common to feel you did poorly and then when your score comes back, you may end up doing much better than anticipated (this happened to me). I can relate to your worry about having 1 low score - I had 1 pretty low score (many years ago) and then another more competitive score. I am hoping this will be the situation for you as well! Plus if you cancel, you will never know where you went wrong (if you did at all) and therefore might take on a study strategy for February that might not be helpful. I would suggest to not cancel! Good luck!!
  15. How long do you have to respond to your offer?
