  1. I can't tell you how absolutely delightful and reassuring it is to find another helping person on here! Reading people's ECs about working in law offices and having business degrees, I was starting to feel like a fish out of water. You're right- I have put in a lot of work to get to this point and I am proud of myself for that! I definitely need to work on treating myself with more kindness and not getting caught up in comparing myself to people on the internet who represent a very small sample size. Thank you so much for your message. It was exactly what I needed to hear ❤️
  2. I do not have ties to the Maritimes. I am not in school anymore unfortunately. I'm thinking that if this application cycle does not go in my favour then I will have to rewrite the LSAT. But thank you for your insight, it is really appreciated!
  3. Yes, exactly. I feel like I have expended so much emotional energy into this process and it is just such a daunting feeling to know that it probably was for nothing.
  4. You're so right. I must sound like such a big baby! I've gotten caught up in the toxic comparison culture that surrounds application season but you're right. In the grand scheme of things, this doesn't matter. I appreciate you taking the time to reply to me, I needed the reality check haha.
  5. Hey everyone, Does anyone have any tips for getting over the desolation that comes along with realizing your stats aren't going to be competitive? I have a 3.75 GPA and a 158 LSAT. Last year I was waitlisted at the one school I applied to and then did not end up getting in. This year I've applied to the U of A, U of C, TRU, Dal and UNB and, honestly after seeing this years applicant pool, am feeling way out of my depths. I'm a bit of a non-trad applicant, came from significant adversity and currently work as a social worker. I don't think that part of my application, though, is necessarily even going to be considered if I don't get past the initial screening round. I should also mention that I did not apply under any special consideration labels- just didn't feel appropriate for me or my circumstance. I could write the LSAT again (would be my third write), but am having a hard time pulling myself out of this funk and the defeatism has set in. Anyone feeling the same away and either have tips for how to move past it or wants to commiserate together?
  6. Thanks so much everyone! Ill shoot them an email
  7. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem. My to-do list says I need to upload my resume but I uploaded it when I filled out the online application.. It also doesn't give me the information regarding how to rectify the situation. Anybody have any insight?
  8. Fair enough. I was on the waitlist until september last year so hoping for news a little bit sooner this time.
  9. Hey all, Does anyone know the approximate timeline that U of C starts accepting students? I applied by Nov. 1st but am wondering if that really makes a difference in terms of the acceptance timeline.
  10. Title pretty much says it all, but the professors I was going to use for my references have become impossible to get ahold of. I have done everything I can think of; email (a few times), leave voicemails etc and have received no response. They have always been hard to get ahold of as they are both researchers and, consequently, are super busy but in the past I've been able to go see them on campus when other methods of reaching them fail. I have great relationships with them both so I know they wouldn't be ignoring me.. and I know they are still employed and teaching virtually. I just don't know what to do. I have other professors I could ask but the letters would be weaker. Has anyone else been in a similar situation this year?
  11. Fair enough! Thanks for that insight- I didn't realize the faculty hadn't sent anything out to accepted students yet. That must be very frustrating. I hope you all receive some clarity soon!
  12. Ah that makes so much sense- I hadn't thought of it that way! Thanks so much for all your insight and kindness I really appreciate it!
  13. Hey! Thanks so much for the reply- I really appreciate it. The u of c doesn’t disclose anything about their waitlist so I really have no clue where I stand. My gut is telling me that it’s preeetty late in the cycle for them to be admitting many more though. I only studied for the lsat for about two months and I was in school full time.. so I think I could probably do better. I’ll look into 7sage- thanks for the tip! I was looking at one called blueprint and it seemed great but is so pricey.
  14. Okay great!! Logic games are definitely where I struggle so that is very good to know! I have seen that passage on their website, it says so much while somehow saying so little. The acceptance thread on their forum here has been dead for over a month now so I guess that’s what is messing with my head!
