  1. chances? 156lsat 3.69l2/4.3 3.5cgpa/4.3

    You've got a pretty good chance. Someone in this cycle was admitted in December with a 75.22 index score (3.92 AGPA and 158 LSAT).
  2. chances? 156lsat 3.69l2/4.3 3.5cgpa/4.3

    Calculate your index score using your LSAT score and GPA (with drops if applicable). An index score of 74 or above will probably land you an offer.

    http://umanitoba.ca/admissions/media/law_bulletin.pdf Index score formula is on page and calculation of AGPA is on page 8. http://law.robsonhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/web-stats-201690.pdf and here are the stats you need to determine your chances.
  4. What was your undergrad?

    woo, okay, that puts my heart at ease. I will be accepting my offer then. Thanks!
  5. Do employers look at your undergrad?

    It will take two more years before I finish my B.A. and no I can't defer admittance if I wanted to finish it first. I've talked to past and current students from Robson Hall. All of them said that the lack of an undergrad degree didn't affect their chances at employment nor did it affect how they did in law school. That lessened my uneasiness towards starting law school this year. I've accepted my offer of admission and will be starting this September. Thank you everyone for your helpful advice
  6. Do employers look at your undergrad?

    I was wondering whether the lack of an undergrad degree would affect my chances at getting employed after I graduate from law school.
  7. What degree did you finish before applying to law school and did you find that your undergrad experience prepare you well for law? Also, I realized that Robson is one of the very few law schools in Canada that don't require you to have an undergrad degree. Is there anyone on this forum that went to Robson without finishing a degree first? I applied to Robson this cycle and was offered a spot but I still haven't decided whether to accept or decline it. My index is 80.8, which is above most other people (which hopefully implies that I'm competent), but I haven't finished my undergrad degree yet (it would take me at least two more years to do so). I'm wondering if an undergrad degree is necessary in preparing me for law school.
  8. Getting ready

    Major in the area you're good at or the area that you're really interested in. I'm majoring in Philosophy since it's something that I'm interested in. Also, I found that it was very helpful for the LSAT. Philosophy taught me critical thinking and logic, which are both useful for the LSAT. I wouldn't do too much to prepare for law school, to be honest. Do well in school and have fun while you still can.
  9. Do employers look at your undergrad?

    Law firms look at an individual's grades and experience when determining whether to hire them, but do they pay attention to what undergrad degree you finished? Does it matter to an employer whether you finished an arts, business, science, etc. degree? Does one area of study make you a more competitive individual?

    Accepted today. 4.2/4.5 AGPA 161 LSAT
  11. Arthur V. Mauro Residence

    The U of M textbook buy/sell page also has postings for roommates. Waaay more affordable than the campus residences.

    Do you know if it's the general entrance scholarship (grade-based) or if it's a scholarship earned because of your personal characteristic statement? I have similar stats (4.2cgpa, 161 LSAT, 80.83 index) but am not an early admit, so I'm wondering if any scholarships are even open to me.
  13. How to start LSAT prep

    I didn't bother doing a diagnostic because I knew it would only discourage me. To prep for the LSAT, I went through the three PowerScore Bibles, an analytical reasoning workbook, and a bunch of past exams. Ended up doing reasonable well. I didn't do a diagnostic only because I knew doing so would subject me to discouragement and other negative feelings. However, I do concede that it is very useful in tracking your progress.

    Anyone know if Robson Hall sends out acceptance packages in the mail?
  15. Are older PowerScore editions still useful?

    I used the 2015 PowerScore books to take the September 2017 LSAT and I did just fine. I paid $100 for about six prep books off of Kijiji. It would've cost me about $400 if I had bought everything brand new. I suggest taking the 2013 books from Craigslist and buying a brand new workbook. If there's anything new, it's probably in the Logic Games section, so buying the Logic Games workbook will be helpful ($43 on Amazon).
