  1. I am trying to figure out which LSAT date to write and how much time is reasonable to study. I am currently taking 7Sage and have just finished the Trainer text. 7Sage recommends giving yourself ample time to prepare and study for the exam and suggests a year window. I started studying 20 + hours a week since January and would like to write the July exam. Would it be better to write the September exam and if necessary do a November re-take? Any thoughts or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. From my understanding on their website, I believe it mentions they only accept deferral under certain circumstances. This leads me to believe it must be for serious matters, such as a family illness, personal illness, or child birth. I do not think your reason would be accepted. I might be wrong though. Best to call their admissions officer and find out. Good luck!
  3. Thank you for your response and information. In my case it is a serious hardship I experienced, I was a victim of a terrible crime. I understand what you mean about a serious hardship impacting one's success in law school from an admissions perspective. However, I was going to mention how I overcame this through support services and counselling. It actually does show on my transcript the vast improvement in my grades after this year, perhaps this would ensure they felt I had overcome this hardship and was able to put it behind me. Does this sound alright?
  4. Hello, I am trying to understand how to best explain circumstances regarding two semesters, where I performed poorly in my studies. These two semesters impacted my GPA and I understand you can provide an explanation on your application. The explanation is quite personal, however it would create more context as to who I am as a person and how I have come through a very difficult time. Has anyone listed on their application very personal reasons before and did you feel it helped your application?
  5. Hello, I am starting on the LSAT journey and would like to have solid recommendations regarding the best prep textbooks. If you could be so kind to tell me about what you think the best ones are and why, I would greatly appreciate your input. So far, it seems the Power Score series is very popular. Thank you.
  6. Hello, This is my first post on this site! I am turning 31 in December and have had some major changes in my life. I have been working as an RN for 4.5 years and have a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from the University of Victoria. I would like to study law and change my career. I understand U of C has holistic admissions. I am not sure how to calculate my GPA, as I have a mixed GPA due to the program I was in. Long story short, started at community college with a 4.0 scale and then moved over to Uvic which has a 9.0 scale. What is a half credit? I am confused regarding the calculation of half credits. Roughly how many courses would this be? If anyone can please answer my post that would be very helpful. Thank you
