  1. Need help with LSAT

    Go to 7sage on Yotube. Will give you tons of free explanations of Logic Games. Also, check out LSAT Hacks on Google and it will explain the reasoning behind every RC and LR section. As for studying, if you feel you really need a tutor, go for it. Otherwise, just get your hands on some practice tests and start drilling away, and checking your answers online with the above resources. Good luck mate.
  2. Lowest LSAT for a realistic shot...

    For RC, I've found that BRIEFLY skimming (like 25 seconds) the questions before you read the passage can help a lot. If there's a question that says "When the author states ___ in Line 24-26, they probably mean....", you can leave a quick mark at line 24-26 and have it for reference. If it mentions the last paragraph, do the the same. If it mentions a particular word in one of the passages, write that word beside the reading passage and circle it when you get to it. For me, I find that this really helps. It helps prime myself for the passage, and gives me some context to what I'm about to read. Everyone is different though and I've heard for others it's not a good strategy. But if you're weakest section is RC, it's worth experimenting with. EDIT: *and when I say briefly skim, I mean just skimming the questions for ALL of the Qs, not the questions and the possible answers to each one. That's way too much wasted time and totally unnecessary.
  3. Accepted to UNB 2018

    Hey everybody, congrats on getting in so early!!! Must feel amazing! I'm wondering if you could share how you converted your GPAs to the 4.3 scale. With drops, I know I've got 3.75 using the OLSAS conversion system. It's also 84% when I average percentages. Anyone know what that would be on 4.3? Thank you very much in advance. EDIT: Nevermind I figured it out!
  4. Lowest LSAT for a realistic shot...

    You're gonna need at least a 155 to get you on the borderline for a late-wave acceptance (March-April). 155 is very do-able though if you are scoring 150 right now. What is your weakest part of the LSAT? Try to be strategic with your preparation now in the final weeks. Also, I would recommend applying to U Sask. They take B2 (3.8 for you) which is a better GPA than UNB's calculation for you (3.72), so that is a big help. Plus, you can write the Feb LSAT for both of these schools too. Don't freak out if you don't do well in December, take it as a learning experience and apply everything you learned toward your Feb LSAT. E.g. I was PTing around 160 consistently, but shit the bed BIG TIME in September with a 152. I was totally nervous and ran out of time for 3 of the 5 sections. Brutal. But, I'm writing again in December and after having had that bit of experience, I'm confident I won't make the same mistakes. Keep your eye on February if you have to. It's gonna take hard work but if you really want this, you can do it. Good luck.
  5. Oh wait, after drops. Still! very impressive.
  6. Holy shit that's a wicked GPA! Congratulations!
  7. Chances: 3.3 GPA and 153 LSAT

    Your stats are slightly below average, but if you have Indigenous status, along with a strong Sask connection, I think you have a decent chance of getting in. 80-90% I'd say. Under the general category, I don't think you would make it. But given your extensive experience and involvement within your Indigenous community, I would bet good money that you get in. Good luck!!!
  8. Chances? 3.46 cGPA, 3.61 L2, 158 LSAT

    I've got the same stats as you Sara and I'm re-writing in December as well. Let's do this!
  9. Damn mine isn't up yet. Let's hope my 3.46 gets flipped into a 3.64, and then through some other twist of fate, gets wrongly input as 3.94. Only then will I even begin to consider feeling comfortable.
  10. PS Mistake - I am freaking out!

    Lol fuck me I did the exact same thing!!! Glad to know that the consensus is that it isn't a big deal. My PS for Ottawa says "In particular, I look forward to contributing to the NSLP student program at Windsor!"
  11. Chances? 3.75 L2 / LSAT 163

    Not sure why people are saying you don't have a chance at Western. They are the only Ontario school that specifically says they prioritize your final two years over your cGPA. Gotta improve that reading comprehension, boys! 163 is a fantastic LSAT score, and 3.75 L2 is also fantastic. I would say 95% you are getting into Western.
  12. OLSAS cGPA???

    Damn that really sucks man. I guess I am not the only one who is feeling salty about this! Oh well, I guess it is what it is. Nothing we can do now! Good luck to everybody on your apps. Next few months should be exciting.
  13. OLSAS cGPA???

    Hey everybody, I was looking over my transcript from the University of Guelph, and it clearly says I graduated with distinction (cumulative average above 80%). I forget the exact number but it's like 80.5%. Anyway, I'm confused because I used the OLSAS app for android and plugged in all my numbers, and got a 3.46. Is an 80% a 3.46?? If so, jesus all of these cGPAs here are impressive! I see so many 3.7+ cGPAs and I always thought an 80% was 3.7. Anyone care to shed some light?? My brain is fried from my application. Must find some whiskey before the day is done! lol thank you in advance for your help
  14. Accepted to Windsor 2017

    Hey carlysw, I have literally the exact same stats as you, the cGPA, L2 and LSAT are all the same. Knowing that you got accepted is giving me hope! Although I am gonna re-write the LSAT in December to see if I can boost my score a bit. Do you have any tips for writing the Personal Statement for Windsor? Thanks and congrats on getting in!!
  15. Chances? (cGPA/B3 3.56 | LSAT 173)

    That's great man, I am happy for ya. My brother and my mom both went to Osgoode, and they loved it. I'll probably be the runt of the litter, however, as my heart is set on Windsor haha. I agree with what Constant said, if you can write a strong PS you can probably get into U of T as well. Check out these examples of Personal Statements that the U of T Faculty of Law put out itself: https://www.law.utoronto.ca/documents/JD/UofT_Law_Personal_Statements_Examples.pdf Should be a good place to start.
