  1. I've gotten above average on all of the assessments we've had so far (assignments + midterms + legal memo). However I'm only in my first semester of 1L so we'll see how the remainder of my classes go and where I end up! And with the topic of readings - the first few weeks of law school, I read through every sentence of every reading I had and quickly realized this was neither needed nor that helpful for myself. The way I approach readings now is based on class by class. Some classes have professors who really likes quotes directly from the readings, so I make sure to do all my readings in that class. Other classes require to grasp the bigger picture, which is where I use upper year notes to give me an understanding of course materials prior to class and then I fill in gaps within the lecture. If I'm struggling with a topic within class, I do go back and make sure to read over the reading again to ensure I got what the main points. Also, I found most professors have been very fair when it comes to readings. I definitely do read substantially more than I did in my undergrad- however it has been very manageable. The only readings that have been a pain have been the ones that are very old and I have no clue as to what the words even mean so it takes a longer time to read. Otherwise it has not been an issue at all. My biggest tip would be to connect with upper years and get your hands on good upper year summaries, they really do help!
  2. To be fair, I wake up at 10:30 AM (sometimes later) and still get all my readings/work done in time. (As do all my friends) I've also been doing pretty well thus far- all of my feedback so far have been positive. It's all about budgeting your time effectively. As you go through your first semester, you'll figure out quickly what materials you should read and how to read them! I would say I study around 20 hours a week additional to classes and tutorials.
  3. From what I saw in last years thread, there were people who got into Queue in November and got accepted months later and there were also people who got into Queue in January and got accepted a week later. It’s hard to tell whether there is a correlation between getting into queue and when you’ll hear back from admissions!
  4. I agree that I need to pace myself out. It’s hard when many years of wanting to go to law school leads up to this point! Just wanted to know if they do send them out on the weekends. I appreciate your input though.
  5. Hi guys, I just wanted to know whether any school sends out acceptances over the weekends? Has anyone gotten one over the weekend? I want to know so I’m not obsessively checking every hour of the day, lol. Thanks in advance!
  6. Mine shows the same thing! Still says "Application Incomplete". I read in another thread that it apparently stays that way until they start reviewing your file, and if anything is missing, they'll reach out to you.
  7. My mistake! I misread your original post and thought you already received your score, haha. I took my LSAT twice and decided not to cancel my first one so that I could take it as a learning lesson. I looked at the questions I got wrong and really nailed the areas that needed improvement. Personally, I think knowing how you did is better than not.
  8. I don’t believe you are able to cancel your score once you receive it! You can cancel only 5 days after you take the test. From what I know, most law schools look at your top score, so I wouldn’t worry much and would focus on killing the January LSAT.
  9. Hi guys, I was just wondering how your L2/B2 would be calculated when you have a course that was taken in the summer. The way that OLSAS broke it down is three different grades - one GPA for the summer of second year, one GPA for second year (F/W) and one GPA for third year (F/W). I'm currently in my fourth year so there is not fourth year GPA. Would I just use the GPA from second year without the summer GPA to calculate L2 and my GPA from third year? Thanks in advance!
  10. I submitted on October 26th! I would assume that they're sending out applications in batches because of the high numbers of applicants.
  11. I received acknowledgement this morning! A few of my friends also have received theirs but I know a few that haven’t yet.
