  2. It sounds like you have a similar problem to the one I had. The LSAT is a difficult test to succeed on when you’re so stressed out about it. On my first time writing the test I overdid it on the studying, stressed like crazy and scored a 158. After I got that score I decided to take a different approach. I actually cut back on studying and tried to take a more laid back approach to the test. A lot of my breakthroughs came when I wasn’t studying and I had that random moment where some things clicked. After doing this for 2 months I went into the test feeling a lot more relaxed and confident and scored a 164. Obviously different things work for different people, but if stress is one of the things you feel is holding you back, this may be worth a shot.
  3. I ended up getting accepted about a month ago, but I scored a 164 in December so I doubt that I got in with my 158.
  4. I’m pretty concerned about this as well. I’ve noticed people are starting to take political disagreements as personal attacks and things get heated pretty quickly. I’ll be attending Osgoode this fall (which I’ve heard has a very left wing student body) and I just don’t want to be ostracized due to my conservative beliefs (mostly in the fiscal sense). During law school I want to challenge people’s beliefs as well as have my own beliefs challenged, but I don’t want to be an outcast because of them.

    @BlockedQuebecois What are your favorite and least favorite things about Osgoode?

    Living Downtown

    That’s what I was thinking. I really can’t see much of a downside with the subway extension, other than it being more expensive.
  7. Hi everybody, Do you guys think it would be reasonable to live downtown along Spadina by the subway and use that to commute to campus? Or would it be better to live on campus?
  8. In! 3.92, 158 (Sept) 164 (Dec) Strong ECs
  9. Exact same stats as you.. did you write the December LSAT?

    Sketch Importance

    Hi everyone, I am curious about the sketch section of the application... how much emphasis do adcoms put on it in comparison to GPA, LSAT and personal statements??
  11. I spoke on the phone with OLSAS today and they said if it’s not on their website the schools don’t see it
  12. I doubt they will be up until sometime next week. OLSAS just got LSAT scores today so it’ll probably take them a few days to process

    LSAT prep

    For RC, I found that just doing practice passages didn’t help me. I noticed improvement when I started reading for leisure every day for about 1-2 hours. Just find books with challenging material on a topic you’d enjoy reading about and commit to reading it every day.

    Chances [3.92, 158 164]

    My L2 is the same as my cGPA at 3.92
  15. Just got my December score back... do you guys think I have a shot at Osgoode and U of T with my 164 or would my previous 158 hold me back??
