  1. Windsor Accepts February LSAT?

    Woah I just checked and they also used my February score too. That's good to know. I'm on the Waitlist for now
  2. But it makes a difference to me. Granted, it's not a huge difference, but it still matters to me. The question was never about striving for success or if I worked hard enough. I came to the website looking for guidance because of the dead end I was in. I got great advice from users here. Looking back, obviously how I'm choosing to deal with my dead end is thinking about the "what if's" and "if I knew xyz, then I would've had a different outcome." I'm in that position to be able to say that because I'm talking about my personal experience. It's not up for debate with you lol.
  3. Further, if you haven't graduated yet, it can help you to take a fifth year. If you're successful and actually work your ass off, it has the potential of raising your L2 or even your cGPA. At that point, it's not a dead end.
  4. Hey, I don't think you read anything I posted when I first made this thread. I have no idea what you're trying to argue here. Who's denying that I had a 2.9? Before I graduated, I calculated my GPA on York's convertor and I was in the low 3.0's. I was willing to accept that and take my chances with my application and work hard for a high LSAT. I was upset when I noticed there was a discrepancy in York's and OLSAS's. This didn't just happen to me, it's happened to a few people I went to York with. That's it. I wish I knew where I accurately stood, back before I applied to graduate. Listen man, I get the point you're trying to make and yes, obviously it's the student's responsibility to research on their own, nobody's going to hold your hand in the real world. Considering the amount anyone is paying for tuition, I think any University wants their students to strive for success, so yes *more information given on these post-grad options would be great*. Nothing wrong with saying this.
  5. What are you talking about? Obviously a 2.9 is not competitive, that was the point of this entire thread. Like I said for the second time, nobody's blaming the University for my GPA. I'm literally saying it would be more helpful if there was more information. It would've helped me make a better decision to put me in a better position than now. I'm working with what I have right now.
  6. Hmm, no I don't think that's the case at all. I'm happy right now that I got a response from a school, there's no self frustration from another user on here lol. You literally don't know me, you're a grown ass man calling someone else a child for expressing their views on their own university? If you read my original response to the other user, I said my issue with York was the GPA Convertor, as well as having no information on anything about law schools. I did do my research, I didn't come across OLSAS and its GPA calculator. I received my information from my job, and friends who were already in law school. I'm not blaming anyone for my GPA, I just would've preferred to have more information on my options, such as taking a fifth year, as well as having an accurate GPA calculator. I did it on my school's website. If this thread is to help any future applicants, I hope it shows them the options that I didn't so easily realize at the time.
  7. Lmao you're not worth my time to give a detailed response on why I expected more from my University. You didn't go there, so save your comment to yourself. I don't come judging you and questioning if you were "trying your best". As I said, I would update this forum, and your comment does absolutely nothing to progress it, or answer any of my original questions, or add any feedback to anything really. Have a good night, move on with your life.
  9. I found it to be a relief as well! I really liked the Games section. it just seemed like the easier practice tests I've written. I had 2 RC's, so one was experimental. I felt confident with one, and not confident with the other. Then I found out the one I didn't have enough time on was the real one that counted. So basically, fml. Signing up for Feb.
  10. The schools that I'm applying to I don't think average out LSAT scores, but I will write it in December just because I want to provide Windsor with at least something. Otherwise my Windsor application will be wasted, since they won't take my February marks.
  11. I agree with you. I think I wrote in a comment here somewhere that I did calculate my GPA on York's website and it was higher than what I saw OLSAS converted me to. Long time lurker definitely did not mean prior to my graduation. I didn't even know about OLSAS's GPA convertors. As I said to Western, had I known I was in the 2.9 range, believe me I would have taken a fifth year. Or even summer courses!!!! I had nothing to lose, it's not like I started law school in September. I just worked this year. I'm just really upset about that. Honestly in my experience going through the application process, I just want to say that York was absolutely terrible in preparing any students with any sort of information on post-graduate studies. Whether it be Master's programs or law schools. I had no idea where to start or what to do. I understand you need to research it yourself, which I did at the time (I never came across this forum) - I came across different charts that all gave me different admissions requirements. The only way I found out about this was through a co-worker of mine at the law firm. Regardless, I just wish there was a bit more guidance from our Universities in regards to law schools. It would allow us to realize what we need. Had I found this forum prior to graduating, or even in my second or third year, I think I would've had a different outcome.
  12. Hi! Thanks for responding I talked to my instructor about this, and he said the same to me about preferably writing it in Feb (Not June because they won't accept me for 2018 then). The only reason why I can't defer this upcoming one is because Windsor won't accept your February marks, so I'm going to still try for December and then go for February too, most likely. @Ryn is right. When I first did my few practice tests, it was before I even completed the course/knew how to strategize each section. I think a 160 is more doable and is my current goal. 165+ if I write it in February. One user said 170, I don't think I can achieve that. But maybe we'll see for Feb. Not an aboriginal, but I did speak with Western and they allowed me to submit a page + (I gathered) documentation to claim special circumstances, explaining the marks of my final year. Really praying this can hold some weight, because my transcript is not terrible and it really is certain marks weighing me down. I also submitted the explanation and the documentations to UNB as well.
  13. Hey! I just applied to University of New Brunswick as somebody mentioned, but I'm having trouble applying to the Windsor dual program. Through OLSAS, all it's letting me submit is just a supplementary form? Which has like, only 6 lines to explain why I want to go there? Do they not accept personal statements? A bit strange.
  14. Thanks so much! I think I'm a bit scared to apply for the Windsor dual, because what if they see that I applied for both and reject me from the single JD because they saw I applied to the Dual one? Maybe I'm overthinking.
  15. Wow wow thank you. I had no idea about these schools. I actually do have low marks that are weighing down my cGPA, because I have more A's than C's and the rest are B's. It just so happens that the classes I received a C in include a 9.00 and some are 6.00. (I don't know if this makes sense to those who didn't go to York). Also, I should've petitioned a class I took in first year but I ended up passing the one year deadline for petitions and never inquired about it. I don't know if any schools would look at my Major's GPA? Is this even a thing? Because in all of my Poli Sci courses, I have A's-B+. I'm going to research more about UNB right now and see if I would apply through OLSAS for that school or it would be separate. Thank you!
