  1. Reading comp is tough to improve on. However, there are a couple of things you can try strategically. First off, read the economist and other such magazines for pleasure. Read a section of an article. Consider the bottom line and move to the next section. Get into the habit of doing this in RC sections. Read a paragraph. Ask yourself what the author’s bottom line is, then move to the next paragraph. You can try reading the questions first. It may work for you. You can try reading at a much slower pace and upping your comprehension. If you are still struggling closer to test date, I’d recommend aiming to get perfect on 3 passages. Start with your strongest subject and save the tough passage for last. But use this strategy with some caution because sometimes the toughest subject matter (law, science for ex.) might be the gimme passage. I’m sure more folks on here will have other thoughts as well. Best of luck to you.
  2. I imagine this would depend on how badly your entire class performed on the exam. In my brief time at law school, it has been drilled into our heads that A-range grades on exams require a solid application of the rules to the facts.
  3. I would suggest you try the low-hanging fruit strategy that is proposed at 7sage: https://7sage.com/why-you-must-skip-questions-on-the-lsat/ Only follow this strategy if you have a strong understanding of the fundamentals.
  4. Would securing funds first through a PSLOC affect my chances of receiving federal and provincial Government loans or bursaries/financial aid from the University this fall? My province has yet to release applications for student loans. According to their aid estimator I’m eligible to receive loans but it won’t cover things completely. I’ve gotten in touch with my local branch and applied for a line of credit. I’d obviously like to maximize my ability to receive financial aid from school. However, I’m worried my access to credit from the bank will hurt my chances. Anyone have some advice on how to proceed?
  5. When I read the info in the link, it comes across as though we send the form via email, once our app is submitted. I not 100% about this though.
  6. Does anyone know how much weight is given to the LSAT when applicants are considered for the entrance scholarship? Approximately how many applicants receive the scholarship? Any info would be very helpful. Thank you all. edit: found the info incase anyone is curious: http://law.robsonhall.com/student-resources/financial-aid/
  7. Hey Robson Hall applicants! Last year's stats have been posted up on the Robson Hall website. http://law.robsonhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/web-stats-201990-1.pdf
  8. Manitoba takes your highest score but will update your application if you score higher than what you applied with up until and including the Jan 2020 lsat. All you need to do is email admissions about your higher score.
  9. You can drill specific question types on Khan academy. You’ll need to complete a diagnostic test first. I find it very handy because their website works nicely on my mobile phone.
  10. I thought Powerscore’s LG bible was solid. Get your hands on as many Pts as you can and use them wisely. I purchased the Powerscore trilogy when I first started studying and I regret that decision because the RC bible was a complete waste of time. It actually hindered my progress in that section. I’d probably avoid any textbook that claims to teach you strategy on the section. Just actively read more dense academic journals and magazine articles. Loophole for LR seems to be the new hip book the folks over at reddit are talking about. They are claiming that it has done for logical reasoning what the LG bible has done for analytical reasoning. I’m somewhat intrigued by it, and would like to know if it has any merit.
  11. You can try taking notes on the scrap paper and see if it works for you. I’m retaking in September and possibly October or November depending on what score I get on August 28th. I had immense difficulty working with the highlighter tool during the test. I gave up on it halfway through. I have been working on RC a little differently since July and it I’ve seen some improvements in my score. I stopped notating completely and simply keep track of view points, main point and structure in my head. The one neat thing about digital RC is that line references in questions are highlighted for you automatically in the passage. It saves a lot of time and relieves you of any pressure to find a particular sentence or word that they may refer to.
  12. You get 14 pages of scratch paper. It’s more than plenty of paper for diagraming games and RC/LR notation. The only complaint I’ve seen come up fairly often about the paper is the LSAC watermark across each page. I didn’t find it to be a big distraction but it’s a bit subjective.
  13. Congratulations!! Would you tell us your stats?
  14. Has anyone received any news about how late into the cycle you can take the LSAT? Last year, the September 2018 LSAT was the latest test you could take to be considered for entrance scholarships while the January 2019 LSAT was the latest to be considered in last years admissions cycle. Will it be relatively similar or could we see some changes?
