  1. Are you saying that a Windsor student would need to be an “all star” in school, all else being equal, to be on the same playing field as an okay U of T student? I’m having trouble interpreting “slightly above average.” In your opinion, does this mean that the average U of T student would have equal chances to a “slightly above average” Windsor student? I’m seriously wondering as a 0L highly considering Windsor Law.
  2. I have a 3.73 L2/B2 and 158, following for any opinions. Fingers crossed for the both of us!
  3. First Ontario acceptance! 3.4 cgpa, 3.73 L2, 158 LSAT Extensive ECs and work experience. PS tailored to Windsor.
  4. I received the Meet and Greet email too and mine says “Referred-ad com” ...
  5. I feel slightly more concerned because it’s supposed to reflect my writing skills in French specifically... hopefully not too big a deal but I will think about it.
  6. Hi guys, I’m looking for some insight on my situation. I actually submitted my PS a few days ago and I now realized that a bunch of spaces and apostrophes had been removed when I clicked submit. Should I contact the admissions department at UOttawa? I don’t want this to negatively impact my chances/I don’t want admissions to think that I can’t write properly.
  7. I haven't heard back from Windsor yet, but this really sounds like an acceptance! It also takes OLSAS a few days and I've seen from other users that their UWinsite Student didn't update right away. When were you referred to Admissions?
  8. Congratulations OP! Does anyone here have any insight on how law schools look at a poorer score in general?
  9. My to do list completely disappeared but Windsor is giving me some serious trust issues after all the emails and status switches. Still hopeful nonetheless!
  10. I know it doesn't feel great to have your score drop, but I've heard from others that those schools take the highest score no matter what and so I think as long as you got 159 you should be okay. Also, Windsor doesn't even consider the Jan score so it definitely shouldn't affect your chances there. You also applied access and I'm no expert but I believe both of those are still competitive? Best of luck.
  11. Message me if interested, it's completely unused! I'm looking to sell it for about $30 (the 2019 bible is currently $48.65)
  12. I can sell you the Powerscore 2017 Reading comprehension bible if you are still interested! I can meet in Toronto. I can give it to you for $30 (it's completely unused too) as I took a Powerscore online course shortly after buying and the books for the course contained basically the same info.
  13. Would you mind sharing what your last 2 years GPA was? I know you posted the percentage, but if you know it in GPA format (e.g. 3.75) I would love to know as we have similar stats
  14. I know someone who is there now who got in with a 150, but that’s the lowest I’ve heard!
  15. @jklee1987 did you have Referred for review first? If so do you know approx how long it took to change?
  16. Has anyone's status changed from "referred for review" to "referred to admissions" ?
  17. ^ This is not necessarily true. I burned myself out doing 5-section tests and got a 151 in July (among other reasons). Doing 4 sections my second time taking the test worked better for me.. and I started timing myself about 2 weeks before the tests while adding on a few minutes each time (I needed about 2-3 more minutes originally, then did maybe 6 more tests with strict time.) So, don't stress out over the fact that you haven't fully timed yourself yet - 161 and 164 are good scores nonetheless. I agree with @SlickRick that a good idea is to do 3 sections in a row, a break, and then your last section, definitely timed! If you are nervous first do a few tests with 5 extra minutes and keep taking out a minute or so until you get to 35 minutes. Good luck!
  18. I'm not in law school yet, but you definitely meet the stats for uOttawa and so I think you have a good chance! Not sure about the other schools.
  19. Hi all, I was wondering what my chances would look like at Dalhousie. Ideally, I would like to stay in Ontario for law school/I applied to most Ontario schools, but I wouldn't mind keeping my options open! I know it would have been better to apply early in the cycle - but do I stand a chance with my current stats? I will be rewriting the LSAT shortly as well, any thoughts are appreciated.
  20. @kahn1969 That's surprising... did you apply to any other schools? How about EC's and personal statement?
  21. Just checked and mine says it too. Maybe it's because we rewrote in November and this means they received our second score? The Duke thing is some kind of mistake lol
  22. Unfortunately, I don't really think you're going to get a clearcut answer in terms of hours. I went from 151 (July) to 158 (November) by just taking my time and hammering down on the questions I knew I was bad at (for example, I was really bad at 'weaken' type questions in LR). I knew that I would really need a lot of time to understand the material and get quicker. Overall I started by looking over the prep tests I had done originally and then I sort of just made my own schedule as each week went on - let's say I did 3-5 specific games I needed to work on along with maybe 20-40 LR questions that I needed to work on depending on how much time I had that day. Reading comp screwed me either way so I can't really help much with that. Hope this helps!
