Long-time lurker and first-time poster...
Applied this round to some Ontario schools (Osgoode, uOttawa, Windsor, and Queen's) and have gotten rejected from 2 schools and am waiting on 2 more (remaining pessimistically optimistic if that makes sense). I know it is my LSAT that is holding me back, but after bombing my first attempt, I am afraid of writing a number of times and having schools average out my score... Here's the info on me:
Graduated from uOttawa in April (CGPA: 3.66); have extensive volunteer experience serving meals at summer camps to low-income youth and at the Mission for 6+ years; volunteering with an Indigenous elder for the past year, and volunteering as a research assistant at an organization that focuses on social justice for ~3 years. I also have been working at the government in a policy analyst position for the past 2 years. FINALLY, (I think) my references gave me glowing recommendations, but who can be sure. I am passionate about environmental and Indigenous issues, and included these facts in my PS.
LSAT: 148 😠
Any advice on how to make myself stop feeling sorry for myself and buckle down and study? Moreover, I used the PowerScore trilogy last year to study but am thinking of enrolling in an Oxford Seminar 30-hour intensive course OR of hiring a personal tutor. Are these helpful resources or wastes of money?
Finding it a struggle to my fears of bombing the LSAT again.
Any and all advice/insight into how to improve my score is welcome.
