    ART School Transcripts

    Err on the side of caution and include them.

    2L Summer (2019) Recruit PFOs/ITCs

    Wow - do ITCs usually move that quickly?

    What are my chances? [3.4 / 156]

    UofS and Ottawa are your best bets.

    You can always make your statements better. Play around with sentences, look for redundancies, where you can be concise, etc.

    OLSAS resume

    No. Don't do it.

    Schools don't get around to the first wave of offers until the end of November/December. If you have submitted your application, follow the wisdom of Frozen and let it gooooooooooo.
  7. Two-weeks of prep would not be enough for most people. Did you do these practice tests timed?

    References! Academic vs. Non-Academic

    You said the professor supervised you in a non-academic context. You are asking them to write a letter emphasizing this non-academic involvement. They will write the said letter with a focus on your non-academic involvement. You're overthinking this.

    Chances? [159, 3.9/4.3]

    You're probably in at a couple schools with a 3.9 and 159. A ten-point swing is great; do you think you can do better?

    What are my chances? [153]

    Convert your GPA to an OLSAS value - https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-conversion-table/ If you want to go to law school in Canada, expand to schools beyond Ontario (UNB, TRU, etc.) If you want to go to law school next year, apply to schools that will accept a January score and rewrite. If you're okay sitting this cycle out, take your time. Law schools aren't going anywhere.

    Personal Statement Editing?

    That's an understandable concern. That said, you are best served by using your university's careers/professional development office. If you are a year or more removed from university, most schools extend these services to their alumni.
  12. What's your L2/B2? I can see you getting offers to Ottawa and Dal.

    U of T Chances: 3.84 B3, 168, Weak softs.

    You have great stats. Write a strong personal statement - it's 1/3 of your application.
  14. That's a choice personal to you. I would suggest that you not write in November if you're not comfortable. If you are interested in particular schools, their websites will tell you the latest LSAT sitting they will accept for 2019 admissions. Many schools will take a January LSAT, so check and consider preparing for that sitting instead.
  15. You have excellent GPA stats but must rewrite the LSAT. Of course, aim for the best score possible, but I would not be surprised to see you receive an offer with 155+. Best of luck.
