  1. You don't need a tutor. There are enough free resources around for you to figure out what your issues are and for you to correct them. For some people, a tutor can help. But I've also heard of people spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on classes/tutors and achieving no improvement.
  2. So you're typically scoring in the 140s? I would recommend slowing down even more. In Logic Games and Reading Comprehension, spend your time on the first two games/passages focusing on accuracy. With a few minutes left, bubble in a line of guesses. In Logical Reasoning, take your time, aim for 15 questions as accurately as possible. The sections typically get more difficult as they progress, so you want to make sure you take the time to get the easier questions right. Review is extremely important. For Logic Games, search the games on youtube and there are excellent free videos by 7sage covering every logic game. Watch these and learn from your mistakes. For LR and RC, LSAT Hacks has great (free) explanations for most PTs. Use these to learn why your incorrect answer was wrong and why the correct answer was right. March isn't far away. You need to make sure you're practising every day. At least one timed section a day with review and you should see improvement. Good luck! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions I'm happy to help.
  3. What's your PT average? How many questions do you attempt per section? How many of those are correct?
  4. It's welcome day season and I have some questions. How realistic are these days as reflections of life at that school? Should they be treated as serious factors for final decisions? What should I be looking for at these events? All input is appreciated.

    Chances anywhere? 3.85gpa, 153lsat

    Great GPA. I would retake.
  6. How did you do on LG? If you struggled, you should have no issue hitting low 170s within six months. If you did well on LG, hitting the 170s is still likely but less so.
  7. The June 2007 LSAT is available for free on the LSAC website. https://www.lsac.org/sites/default/files/legacy/docs/default-source/jd-docs/sampleptjune.pdf

    4th LSAT..?

    Take it until you have a score that makes you happy. The vast majority of schools only care about your highest score. Shoot your shot.

    30 Points in Less than 2 Months?

    FWIW UofT made ~340 offers/year over the last three years. Plenty of space left.

    30 Points in Less than 2 Months?

    That would be a tough goal if you were taking it in January 2020. Good luck. 1. Focus on doing practice tests and review. Time yourself, but don't finish the sections. Get every question you attempt right, and speed will develop naturally. 2. Probably not. There are many free resources available. 7 sage youtube for logic games. LSAT Hacks and Strategy Prep score tracker and explanations are amazing. 3. Timed sections with a thorough review of questions you answered. 40 hours of studying a week is too much. 4. Time yourself but focus on accuracy. Speed is a byproduct of accuracy. You need to almost double your correct answer count and that won't happen by rushing when you don't understand what you're doing.
  12. This was an anomaly. McGill's lowest LSAT score from the 2017 entering class is 150. https://www.mcgill.ca/law/bcl-llb/admissions-guide/eligibility

    How much is too much

    Take it until you get a score that makes you happy -- ideally at or above your PT average.

    Will US schools see a higher GPA than Canadian ones?

    I cannot guarantee it, but that's where LSAC referred me when I called a while ago.

    Will US schools see a higher GPA than Canadian ones?

    Or a disadvantage if you have percentage grades or did CEGEP in Quebec.
