  1. I appreciate your answers, and I'm grateful that you all took the time to share your insight!
  2. 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."
  3. 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.
  4. 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/
  5. Thank you for sharing your perspective! That's a fantastic score! Was it a PT or the actual test? Regardless, you've done well!
  6. 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?
  7. THANK YOU FOR A FANTASTIC ANSWER! I really appreciate you taking the time to answer me this way. It's such an important question and your answer truly helped. It can get overwhelming fast when you are just starting out. Thank you!
  8. What is the MOST effective method to study for the LSAT? What is the behavior, methodology, habits, mental preparation of someone who scores above 165 or 170? I am focusing on studying from now until the June 2017 exam. Please include as much detail as you can and tell me about your personal experience as I would love to know what you went through and learned. I appreciate your wisdom. Cheers, Sasha
  9. Hello there I'm wondering if experienced LSAT takers can help. I want to study from now until the June 2017 test. I'm wondering what the MOST effective method to study for the LSAT is? What is the behavior, methodology, habits, mental preparation of someone who scores above 165 or 170? It's overwhelming to know where to start, how to start, what to do first etc. I want to create a structured way to master this before taking the test. Your insight is appreciated! Sasha
