  5. Hello! Just wondering for those who have or are planning on accepting your offer, what do they mean by 'emailed acceptance letter'? I don't see any particular letter / form attached that I should fill out. Do they just mean an original letter from us indicating that we are accepting the offer? Thanks!
  6. Accepted today! cGPA: 3.53 / 4 L2: 3.56 / 4 B2: 3.8 / 4 LSAT: 160, 164 MSc in progress: cGPA 65% on a UK scale ( ~ 3.7 / 4) Will be declining!
  7. I had to submit my grades late since my university takes +1.5 months to issue transcripts. OLSAS says that they'll forward through grades whenever they get them. The deadline issue isn't with them per se, but rather with the schools. I would email the Ontario schools and let them know your transcript might be coming in late! Also, if you're in grad studies and applied to Osgoode, they don't need grad transcripts / your application isn't affected by missing the Feb 1 deadline.
  8. Accepted today. General category. cGPA: 4.15 / 4.5 with drops. LSAT: 160, 164. Will be declining!
  9. Accepted Jan 24th via email. cGPA: 3.53 / 4 Drop 18: 3.71 / 4 LSAT: 164, 160 General category. Submitted application on November 24 (don't remember when it switched to Forwarded for Review).
  10. I don't think it impacts your application! I withdrew twice and nothing shows up on my LSAC or on any of my applications.
  11. I'm currently in a Masters program that finishes at the very end of August. I technically don't graduate until October. I emailed a few law schools and they said that it's fine to start law as long as all of your coursework is done by the start of law school (ie. first week of September)! Hope this helps!

  13. I took in-person courses from Kaplan and Princeton Review and ended up with a 160 and 164. I took them mostly because I wasn't super motivated to study by myself during the summer while I was working. It was helpful to have to go to class everyday and have a guide to study. I did, however, also self-study for about 6 months, but I had a baseline knowledge from the in-person courses. I was really lucky that my parents helped me out with the cost of the classes, so I totally understand the cost can be prohibitive. I found that the Kaplan Premier book was really helpful in getting a general overview of the test. It's fairly good at getting that first big jump in score after your diagnostic. The online portal is actually helpful and has quite a few resources (practice tests, question sets etc.). I supplemented my Kaplan books with the Powerscore Bible and question sets for the sections that I wanted to improve. Powerscore sometimes takes a different approach to solving questions, so it can be really helpful to compare strategies and find which one works best for you. The Powerscore blog was SUPER helpful for finding new tips and tricks and just how to organize studying! The first thing to do is just familiarize yourself with the test. Read up (briefly) on the LSAC website about the sections and how the test is formatted (ie. how long it takes, how many sections, how it's administered). Don't try and learn how to do question until you've taken a diagnostic. It might seem uncomfortable to take a test where you literally have no clue, but it's super important to get a baseline score. From there, you can start studying and reviewing the question types that cause issues. For a few months, I took a practice test every Sunday to track my progress. Make sure your testing conditions are the same as the real LSAT (the time of the test, paper test with the proper scantron, no water, only pencil, strict timer, quiet, etc.). It might seem annoying and tiring to take that many tests, but it gets you into the rhythm of taking an LSAT and you'll find that your stress levels will decrease the more tests you take. I found the most helpful strategy was taking adequate time to review practice tests. It took me about 2 hours to review each section. Keep track of the questions you get wrong (make a spreadsheet or keep a notebook), why you got them wrong, if you thought you had got it right, if it was a silly mistake, and most importantly, what kind of question (ie. strengthen, flaw, main point, etc.). Use this info to guide how you spend study time. Sorry for all the info! Please let me know if you have any questions. I don't have the highest LSAT scores, but I was intermittently studying for about a year and half, so I tried A LOT of strategies, books, websites, etc. I hope that I can be of some help! Good luck!

  15. I saw a reply in last years Facebook group (I accidentally joined 2018 instead of 2019 whoops) and it said that there aren't too many opportunities for parents. Some of the things are student only (like the case study and lecture). I think that parents are welcome in the sense that they could come to explore the city and have a look at Schulich, but the Welcome Days aren't intended to accommodate parents. I would maybe just email the Weldon Welcome people! I had to email them and they replied within 24 hours. (Also, not sure if you've already touched base with Randi or Rose, but the travel reimbursement is prorated according to where you're coming from. Coming from Ontario, you might not be able to get the full $700.)
