    Grade Dropping in GPA (2019 applicant)

    Hey, That's a good question. My guess is they would drop it, but I would call. It goes directly to the admissions desk, and they're very helpful: (506) 453-4693

    Early Application

    Hi, How late is still early enough to receive the advantages of applying early? I plan to submit on October 1st, shortly after September LSAT marks are back. Can I use the same academic references for my scholarship applications that I do for my general application? Should they be in separate letters? All help is appreciated.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm beginning my studying for the LSAT in September. I will be working on it this summer as a priority, while also researching for my thesis and taking a few courses. I read through the "LSAT Recommended Preparations" thread and I took well to one of the posts that broke down the studying like this: #1 - Learning the test (LSAT Trainer book) Understand Logical Reasoning Understand the goal of Reading Comprehension Understand the types of Logic Games Find a diagramming system you're comfortable with (then proceed) #2 - Drilling (Cambridge Drill Packets) Meant to work in different question types across setions Use 7sage explanations to find out why you're getting logic game questions wrong #3 - Preptesting Start taking full length tests and grade them with 7sage grader Use the analytics page and find the question types you struggle with and practice them with the Cambridge packs Questions for you (I'd really appreciate it): How does this studying look? Is there anything I should keep in mind? Is LSAT Trainer the best book to get? My parents are keen to help me pay for an LSAT course, and I see 7sage is the most common. Should I do this? I don't want to have "too much" material. If so, which one should I get? Thanks everyone!
  5. What do your ECs look like?
  6. Hey all, In third year undergrad here, and sights are set on Dal Law. I'll be writing the LSAT next September in Halifax, and will be working very part-time this summer, hoping to do the Explore French program in Quebec for the month of June, and prepping for the test for all the rest. My semester is going well (generally speaking), and I'm fairly confident I can pull off a 4.0 (on a 4.0 scale). One hitch, one of the "easier" classes I took I had to withdraw from. The professor was just bad, the workload was ridiculous for this kind of class, and I was striving for Bs. Where my second year marks weren't at all law school material, and Dal takes the highest of either your last two years or your CGPA, I really couldn't afford a low B dragging me down (and all other classes with it). I've looked into it and it seems one W shouldn't negatively affect my application. Does this sound about right? That being said, the admissions process confuses me (try to bare with me as I'm new). As the deadline to complete my application will be February of 2019, and my transcript of that current academic year needs to be submitted, will the last marks I'm able to use be the first semester of my fourth year? In that case, if they take your final two years (if its better), will that start with my final second semester marks? It wouldn't be devastating, but would really require me to kick ass in school the next bit, and do fairly well on the LSAT. Any help would be appreciated!

    Beginner's Advice

    I have done little research on specific study materials but I come across this concern fairly often. Is there just a shortage of material in general, or a shortage of material that will actually be helpful when you write? What do you mean by eventually starting to do more harm than good, making myself anxious, or studying bad (contradictory) material? Thanks!

    Thanks, I appreciate it!
  9. Hey, New to the forum, and planning on going (applying) to law school. It's been my goal for awhile but going into my third year undergrad, things are getting a little more serious. My first two years of marks were good, my second year took a decent hit from going out too much, but my CGPA is still solid (3.5 on a 4.0 scale). I'm in a Political Science program, and got these marks with very little effort. I'm doing Honours and feel well motivated for the year. With everything starting to get real, I'm for the first time excited to hit the books. I'm confident I can pull a 3.8 (maybe higher) in my last two years. I'm from New Brunswick but spent my summer subletting in Halifax, right on the Dal campus. I really love the city, have done my research on the school. I'm setting my sights on Dal. As they weigh 60% on GPA (highest b/w CGPA and last two years), 40% on the LSAT, it works well. My plan for my second semester, is on top of my regular studying, putting in one hour a day to preparing for the LSAT, I plan to write in September 2018. I'll be taking the summer off work and living back in NB after the year, and will make it my day job (minimum 8 hours/day) from May-end of August, to get ready. I'd appreciate any advice, things to expect, what might catch me off guard, am I being unrealistic, be brutally honest. Thanks!
