  1. Wait List Single JD 2018

    Still on the waitlist, heard nothing. I called and they said single JD classes are filling up and those of us on the waitlist should know for sure by mid to the end of July whether or not we're accepted for 2018
  2. Wait List Single JD 2018

    I don't know man, I didn't ask her about past years or anything like that. Maybe you could give her a call with that question and report back? She's pretty easy to get a hold of, I just left a message and she called back in half an hour.
  3. Wait List Single JD 2018

    I called Windsor today and spoke with Mary. She said that classes are filling up for the Single J.D. program, and that if you're on the waitlist, you should know by mid to late July whether or not you've been accepted for Sept 2018.
  4. Thanks for the advice! I read all the books, 7sage and the LSAT Trainer ended up being the best resources for me. I drilled logic games every morning for 3-4 hours for months leading up to the test and it never really stuck with me. I'm just not sure how big of an improvement I'll get from doing it again.
  5. Hi everyone, Law school is looking like it's out of my reach for this year and I'm wondering whether I should bother re-writing the LSAT this December for next year, or just focus on strengthening my application. I don't care about which law school I get into, I just want to be somewhere in Canada... I wrote the Feb LSAT this year and scored 156 (a 16 point jump from my base score). It took me over one year to get to this point with the LSAT and I basically spent the two months leading up to it doing nothing but PTs and blind reviewing them in every spare moment I had. I studied using 7sage and was foolproofing logic games (my weakest point) and it didn't result in a major jump in my score. My LR and RC are decent (typically only -4 to -6 on each section). Unfortunately, because I wrote the February LSAT I can't see my weak points on the test, but that score was my exact average while I was studying and I'm sure the logic games are the reason why I'm not scoring 158-160. I was put on the waitlist for U of Ottawa (221/298) and Windsor (added on May 22 and have heard nothing since) for this year and was flat out rejected from Osgoode and U of Sask (no Sask connection so no surprise there). These are the only schools I applied to this year and if I reapply last year, I will apply to more both inside and outside of Ontario. Background: I have an average of 3.17 from my undergrad. I'm a mature student and the reason my GPA is so low is I was really bad in my first year of university (straight C's the first semester and mostly B's and C's the second semester), I was partying and working a lot. From my second year on, my grades only improved and I was added to the Deans' Honours List in my third and fourth years. I was also eventually hired as a Research Assistant to one of my professors. I went on to do a Master's at the same university I did my undergrad and have over two years of experience in the social services as an Employment Counsellor assisting individuals on welfare and disability find work. Currently, I am employed as a full-time Researcher for McMaster, a position I have held for almost two years now. I specifically want to get into employment law and defending the rights of injured workers. Is it worth re-writing the LSAT in December or do you think I can just improve upon my personal statement? Perhaps, get a couple more letters of references from work and employers? I seriously don't want to put myself through the ringer with the LSAT again and am questioning how much I can really improve at this point. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! P.S. I am still waiting to hear from Windsor so not all hope is lost, but I'm feeling quite discouraged after seeing my place on the U of Ottawa waitlist
