    Here is My Situation... (3.01, 3.5, 149)

    Your post before this one was actually helpful and I hit the “thank you” icon for you. I really really really didn’t want to get to this point but I might have to ask this thread to be shutdown shortly.

    Here is My Situation... (3.01, 3.5, 149)

    Everywhere in life, there will always be criticism and haters. Sure, the ones that suck probably get more criticism and haters. My chances from best to worst are: Uk, Dual JD, other CAD schools. P.s. If anyone is perceiving this as me fighting back and not taking feedback, you’re out of your mind. Look at these essays people are typing and the words they are using compared to how I’m replying. A lot of the comments I’m seeing are people judging me and assuming things about me and they don’t even know me. What about PS, ECs, LORs, etc. These are all mandatory to one’s application and do help build a wholistic approach. Therefore, no one can say for a fact this cycle is over for me until I get rejected from all the law schools. When I commented on other people’s “chances” posts, I always took into consideration other factors we can’t see and gave them the benefit of the doubt. Look back if you don’t believe me. Also, I should have initially mentioned, one of the reasons why I got rejected twice is because I had significantly lower lsat scores and I applied to significantly less schools. This time I upped my game by over 10 points and I have applied to 10 more law schools than I ever had. I kept my options more open, and applied more broadly in hopes to increase my chances. Will I get some rejections? 100%. Will I get some acceptances? Slim but possible. Will I get any waitlists? I predict yes because last year I got waitlisted by two schools and I had significantly weaker stats. Do I realize UK isn’t the best option and it might be difficult in the long-run? Yes I do and I’m ok with that. Thank you for your comments and stop putting so much effort into your posts. A lot of these posts can be cut down in half, I feel. Shout out to LuckyCharm, his posts are the most concise and the most helpful. Check the statistics if you don’t believe me.

    How does it fit?

    My goal is to become a criminal attorney. So it is beyond the lsat and just getting into law school. Like I said, some advice here is good and some advice, I have a suspicion, is directed as discouragement to see someone fail/fall behind.

    Of course, but 4 years? Less. I would say 3. I wouldn’t say I am beating my head. I disagree with that expression/analogy.

    You're right. However, results seem to matter for most things in life, and not just law. But I still want to quote Eric Thomas (one of the top motivational speakers in the world) and I really agree with this: "You have to be in love with the process just as much as you are in love with the prize."

    You were initially concerned about the spelling of "Wholistic/holistic". So it is the word that matters here, not the law school. Law schools can use whatever word they want. Wholistic or holistic works either way. My concern is not how law schools spell wholistic, my concern is the aftermath of UK and what are my miraculous chances in the CAD system. Ironic you killed the lsat. Just comes to show the test doesn't define who someone is.

    I’m not denying my chances are slim to none in terms of Canadian schools. I would say 75% of the feedback that I am receiving is legitimate and reasonable. The other 25%, like HarveySpector for example, are going on a tangeant and I disagree with their reasoning. Also, someone saying your access claim might not be serious since you don’t want to post about it, is also based on mere assumptions and that kind of stuff makes me want to comment back. Because it’s simply false lol. Thank you for encouraging my dedication. The aftermath of the Uk is tough you’re right, but it might be worth it for someone who is dedicate to become a lawyer and is screwed when it comes to CAD options.

    Because I already paid over 2K for courses, books, and tutoring. The thing about chances threads is that it is always based on speculation from experiences and research. Everyone’s chances kinda varies though. I do agree with some of the comments on this thread. Some I respectfully disagree with and have politely given my replies. If you see this as an argument or something offensive, then I apologize, but please leave this thread.

    You’re right. What was I thinking. But anyways, I am hoping that law schools will see beyond the test and understand that there was a great deal of persistence and improvement and that type of work ethic may translate to my law school studies. I doubt they will see beyond it, but it depends on who reads my file, their mood, if they can relate, my PS, ECs, etc...It’s all about being open-minded and wholistic I guess.

    I am confident there are great tutors out there, but I am no longer interested in spending my time and money on the LSAT. It is time to move on from a standardized test that does not reflect my true cognitive abilities. It is consuming my life. It got to a point where I had to post-pone and reschedule meetings and appointments in order to write that darn test. Not fun. I am willing to put time and money on law school, and I understand law school is not easy, but I am past the LSAT phase.

    Yes. They low-key just want their money. They don't care if you succeed on the test. They set you on a time limit and expensive wage and tell you good luck.

    The UK was always a last resort for me and it seems I am reaching that position. I already took those all into consideration and I am up for it. But yes, definitely worth looking into. Thank you. My only concern is the 5-7 NCA exams. Seems daunting.

    Yes so based on my research for the past two years, I see my chances from best to worst are: UK, Dual JD, other CAD schools (maybe the ones that take drops, UOttawa waitlisted me last year with lower stats). I wouldn't underestimate my Access claim.
