  1. Thank you, I appreciate you answering this question. What are your thoughts on studying for 3 months, as in now until the June test?
  2. Question for you: Is it that more people with 4 year degrees apply and get in? What I mean is, unless we know how many with a 3 year apply vs people with a 4 year, how can we possibly know? The standard of having a 4 year honors is based on the fact that the majority who apply have a 4 year. Does that make sense?
  3. That's so helpful, thank you so much!
  4. Thank you that's quite helpful. My school has stated that a cumulative between 80-84 is an -A and a 3.7 GPA, and that's after 3 years of courses. I can do an extra year of school to get my 4 year honors which may move my GPA by 1% lol
  5. How did you learn to calculate it? I'm going by what my University says it is shown below: A- 80-84 3.7
  6. I'm going by what my University says: A- 80-84 3.7
  7. I understand why you think some people wouldn't "need" a prep course, but I don't believe that's a logical approach when it can only enhance your skills anyway. I have heard many people say "x course was such a waste of money...just self-study", but these same people don't have scores I want to achieve. I am looking to increase my odds of scoring high, thus self-study, when I have never taken the test, is not the best method in my opinion. Thoughts?
  8. Hi everyone, Does anyone in fact know if Law schools consider every single grade in every single course? Or is it more semester GPA and Cumulative GPA? If I have a 81% Cumulative GPA which translates to 3.7 - 3.8 GPA, but I have a 62% and a 66% in 2 courses that are both law courses, will that be significant? Or is it more what overall achieved every semester or overall on my degree? I am only looking for confirmation if you actually know this, not heard or speculate. Thank you!
  9. Hello Law students! I want to take the LSAT this June 2019: What is, or are, the best online prep course(s) to help me practice, understand, ask questions, and prepare for this test? *Please include your reasons as to why you believe the course of your choice is the best. Also, please share insight into: - How your studying helped or inhibited your understanding - What you did to prepare for your LSAT - Any tips that you can share to help me become better at understanding or doing well on the LSAT is appreciated
  10. I appreciate your answers, and I'm grateful that you all took the time to share your insight!
  11. Thank you to everyone who has responded. Greatly appreciated. 80% cumulative is a 3.7 GPA. I do actually qualify for the mature student as per the requirements. For example at Western: "Mature candidates must have at least five years of non-university experience since leaving high school and a minimum of two years full-time (or equivalent) university study. A competitive candidate in the Mature category will have an overall average of B+ (78% / 3.3 GPA) and an LSAT score above the 65th percentile. Mature applicants are asked to provide a resumé as a supplementary document when filing their application."
  12. I would appreciate your logic, compassion, and strategic decision making skills --especially if you're 27 years old & above! I have these 3 qualities, however, there has been a question circulating in my mind for almost a year and I must make a decision because the Fall semester is close and I feel too emotional and confused about it. Currently, I have my 3 year general degree with an 80% GPA, my overall is more powerful than some of my semesters, but I did make deans a few times! I'm a mature student, so time is a major concern for me, however, I want to come up with a strategy rather than settle with my circumstances. I want to know your insight (whoever you are) so that I can have some ideas to work with in order to make a decision asap! There are some challenges I've dealt with which resulted in only a 3 year degree, but I keep thinking of getting my 4 year degree because it's 2 semesters. However.... What are your thoughts on applying to law schools in Ontario with a 3 year General bachelor degree? If I aim for an LSAT of 160 and above, 2 academic references, and a solid essay. I know the typical applicant who gets into law school has a 4 year, but not everyone is the same applicant. I would appreciate your insight into whether I should push PAST the thing that stopped me from getting my 4 year, or should I just compete with my 3 year. Law school itself is 3 years and I've proven I can do 3 years of study and do well too. Are my semesters perfect? No. But isn't all about the LSAT, essay, and references in the end? I feel anxious about my 3 year, but I truly worked hard for it. The idea of doing 2 more semesters and risking health, happiness, and pushing my LSAT test to September 2019 seems daunting. If I do 2 semesters as of this fall & get my 4 year, then I would take the LSAT in September 2019 - studying in Uni is already high pressure and I'm all about focus, so that's why it would be Sept 2019. OR I compete with my 3 year degree which would mean I take the Oct , or December, or February LSAT to hopefully get in for Sept 2019 I'm sure many of you will say 4 year simply because you have it, but I'm looking for a strategic answer, because as a woman I feel time is not on my side and I want to get into law school as soon as possible. I would appreciate your insight. Please answer with empathy, because if you're under 25 then you've got time or feel as if you've got time, but over 30 feels rushed and intense because you want to do law, have a baby, make money, so it feels quite overwhelming.
  13. I have a brand new in box - LSAT Trainer book by Mike Kim 2017 version $60 If you don't know about this book then wow... know it, and use it! It's one of the best books for LSAT! I am learning so much from it. I have two by accident, so I'm selling the one I've never opened from the box. http://www.thelsattrainer.com/
  14. Thank you for sharing your perspective! That's a fantastic score! Was it a PT or the actual test? Regardless, you've done well!
  15. I do not believe that you're different than McSweeney. I believe that you have learned via your education and self-education etc how to think in a certain way that in conjunction with practicing this test has given you insight on how to do well on PT. Your answer is quite general too - I'm asking for actual strategies and methodology. What is your method for the RC aspect of practice? What strategies do you use to ensure effective time management in reading then answering?
