  1. I just finished writing a personal statement for the U of T and would love some feedback on it. I've been tinkering away at it for so long that I can't really tell if it's any good anymore so a having fresh set of eyes look it over would be super helpful! Let me know if you're interested in looking it over and I'll PM it to you. Any help is much appreciated.
  2. Thanks. That person makes a great point but it doesn't exactly apply to my case. That said, I feel like it might just be best not to mention this stuff in my application. Even though my experiences could contextualize my desire to study law, they don't really reflect how i'm prepared for law school and I also don't really want my personal statement to become some American idol sob story.
  3. For my personal statement, I've written about some pretty personal experiences, like how I've learned to overcome some crappy circumstances in my childhood. I don't mention any of my academic or extracurricular achievements in my PS. Should I submit a different personal statement instead? The experiences I describe might work better as an optional essay. Please PM me with any advice.
  4. After a quick google, I found that the mean LSAT for Western's 2018 incoming class was a 161.5 and the mean L2 was 3.7. So, to get into Western, aim for a 161.5 or better and a 3.7 or better L2 gpa.
  5. I think that whether a 160 is a competitive score depends on what your GPA is and on what schools you're considering. A 160 combined with a solid GPA would be very competitive at some schools, like Usask. At U of T though? A 160 would not be a competitive score. All the info about what would be a competitive LSAT score at a given school is available online.
  6. I'm pretty sure that CAS is only useful if you are applying to American law schools. Another thread on here said the same thing. Also, you can allow schools to see your score without having to purchase CAS. Be warned: if you choose to do that, you'll probably get a lot of spam emails from American law schools.
  7. My diagnostic was a 147 I believe. My final score was 167. You can do it!
  8. Thanks for this! Good to know that I don't need to worry about it
  9. This is my first W. Thanks. I sure hope it's a non-factor.
  10. I recently withdrew from a summer course that I was taking. Since I was late in withdrawing, I will receive a grade of "W" on my transcript for this course. Does anyone know what a law school would think of that? Would they care at all? I'm probably being paranoid but I'd rather not have a grade of W on my transcript if I could avoid it. I can try to re-enrol in this course but I'm currently taking four other summer courses, working full-time, and living on my own for the first time so I'd rather not re-enrol unless there is a legitimate reason to.
  11. I was accepted at USask after 2.5 years of undergrad. I have a GPA somewhere between 3.8 and 3.86 (haven't calculated in a while) and a 167 LSAT.
  12. Thank you for this! I definitely don't want to restrict my career options.
  13. Thanks for responding again. I really appreciated your post last time as well. I think I already knew that I probably shouldn't go next year but just needed some reassurance.
  14. Thanks for the advice. I'm thinking of taking a full load of courses this semester so that I can graduate next year but I'm probably going to work part time to keep expenses down.
  15. Not sure if this is where I should post this but whatever. I'm an undergrad student who will be completed 2.5 years of school at the end of this semester. This year, I applied to McGill and to USask law and was accepted at Usask but rejected at McGill. I've got a 167 LSAT and a 3.85ish GPA. I've got enough money saved up that, if I chose to go to USask next year, almost all of my legal education would be paid for. I'd also be able to work as a lawyer earlier than if I chose to wait a year or finish my degree before attending law school. However, I know that I'd likely be able to get into a lot of other schools with my stats. I don't have anything against living and working in Saskatchewan but also I don't want to limit my options just because I'm eager to go to law school early. Right now, I'm leaning towards attending the U of S just because it would be a blessing to have law school paid for. Thoughts?
