    Credits Counted/Drops

    Hi everyone, Question regarding credits/drops for schools. At UBC, it says that for a 3 year degree, they drop 6 credits, and 4 year degrees they drop 12 credits. For Uvic, it says 115 credits get a discount of 12 credits. I am applying this cycle, and after the semester finishes in December, I will have 115 credits. Does that count as a 3 year or 4 year degree? Do they count the credits are are in progress at the time of applications? I will be graduating in April, so I am closer to a 4 year degree than a 3 year degree at the time of application. What is the cutoff for credits? Thanks!

    OLSAS Sketch verifier blank?

    Hi everyone, I am trying to add verifiers to my sketches on OLSAS, and I had a couple questions I did not see answered in the other threads. For extracurricular activities such as hobbies, are those appropriate to add on? For example, say skiing, or yoga. Can you go without a verifier for those, or do you need to have someone to verify for you, as some of the activities are individual. If hobbies and such are appropriate to add, would it be ok to leave the verifier section blank? Would the school discount or not consider the sketch if it does not have a verifier? Thank you so much!

    Applications while Waiting on LSAT

    Hi all, Potential dumb question..I'm currently sitting on a June LSAT score and waiting to retake the September one. I am thinking of starting applications as soon as they open up in the fall. How do I go about reporting my LSAT score on applications? Do schools even want you to "self report" your LSAT score? I know schools say they can get LSAT scores directly from LSAC so do I just take the September one and whichever schools I apply to will just check my LSAC report for the old and new updated score? Thanks!

    Chances + 2nd LSAT tips

    I am currently a 3rd year student, and will be finishing up school in 2 more semesters (done my degree in April 2019). I did the June 2018 LSAT and scored a 159. My undergrad grades are still coming in, (10 more courses left) but my average is around a 83% without drops and 85% with drops. I am retaking the September LSAT in hopes of getting 165+. How do my chances look currently with my 159 and cGPA? Would it help immensely if I scored a 165+ on the september LSAT? I did well on my LSAT first take considering my preptest scores were ranging from 155-164, so I was quite surprised at the 159. The Logic Games section was also very well done compared to my usual track record. I am worried my second take will result in a lower/same LSAT score. Are there any tips for making the jump into the high 160s? Thanks so much!
