  1. I think it depends on how you are as a test taker, and only you would know that. I took the digital LSAT in October and I studied with paper practice tests. I did one digital practice test in the weeks prior to the the LSAT, but I only used it to make sure I knew how to use the program. I never actually completed the whole thing. Personally, I found it easier to go back through and understand my mistakes with paper tests. I had never taken a digital test in my life, so I found studying/practicing in ways that worked for me in the past to be helpful. Then when I took the digital test, I had to confidence that I knew what I was doing, regardless of the tablet. Again, totally depends on your learning/testing style, but using paper tests is do-able! I scored exactly what I was getting on the paper practice tests.
  2. Accepted today. General Category. I will be declining. Deadline to accept is May 7 in case anybody is wondering. cGPA: 3.5 LSAT: 164 Congratulations all and good luck to all those waiting!
  3. It should be in you offer letter right under your name, not in the body of the letter. There is an underlined section that says Re: 1st Year Law, Dalhousie... at the end of that it says Student Number: xxxxx. I can’t attach a screenshot here but pm me if you’re still having trouble and I’ll try and help.
  4. I got this email and I received an acceptance about a month later. It's hard to say whether receiving the email is an indication of your outcome either way. Good luck!
  5. I turned down mine on Friday as well. Best of luck everyone!
  6. Did anybody go to Welcome Day last night? How was it? Was there any information worth sharing?!
  7. Thanks! I firmly believe that my PS is what got me my other offers... I applied to UofC at the very last minute and my PS was rushed. I imagine somebody with similar stats and a better PS would get in!
  8. Got waitlisted today. By reading these forums alone, I completely expected to end up here. I am seriously considering some other offers, and will be requesting to be removed as soon as I pay a deposit. LSAT 164 (1 write) cGPA/L2: 3.5 (they are basically the same) Good Luck Everyone!!
  9. Thank you all! I've also been considering Dal's JD/MPA (Public Administration). Has anybody taken that or known anybody that has?
  10. Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a little bit of guidance/advice as I am having difficulty choosing between Dal and Osgoode. My ultimate goal is to work in environmental/natural resource policy for the government. I've compared the course offerings at both schools, and I'm definitely more interested in the options at Dal. They seem to have a lot more policy related courses and so many different environmental law options. On the other hand, I am an Ontario resident and my career goals will likely lead me back to Ontario. I currently work for the government (totally different department/role) and when I mention Osgoode people seem to freak out over it. Does the prestige and location of Osgoode make up for their lack of environmental/policy course offerings? I'm leaning towards Dal but I'm worried I am giving up good name recognition and future career opportunities. I would appreciate some advice and hearing from anyone who has had similar career goals! ... and I thought the anxiety would end once I got an offer... TIA
  11. I heard by email...but the email came to my junk mail which I just happened to look at this morning. It is an automatic email that is generated by oasis so that is likely why it ended up in junk. When I checked oasis the offer was there with yesterday's date.
  12. Got my acceptance this morning. cGPA: 3.5 LSAT: 164 Mature category - 5 years work experience not legal related. Went into Queue on Dec 6. I thought I would 100% accept my offer from Dal but now I'm not so sure... Congrats everyone and good luck to all those waiting
  13. I got my acceptance about a month after I got that email.... I had read how quickly others got accepted so when I didn't find out within a week I figured I would be waitlisted or rejected. I know this is easier said than done, but try not to read too much into it! Good luck!!
  14. Got the email this morning and I CANNOT believe it. I'm beyond excited and will very likely be accepting. cGPA: 3.5, L2 is very similar LSAT 164 Special applicant with 5 years work experience, not legal related. Good EC's (varsity athlete, president of a large student group during undergrad). I imagine my LORs were average. Personal statement was longer than the recommended length. Went under review around December 12th. Congrats everyone and good luck to all those waiting!
  15. My application is now fully complete and I'm eager to know if I have a real shot at this. My cGPA and L2 are very similar. LSAT only 1 write. Out of province. 5 years progressive employment (promotions etc.) not legal related. Varsity athlete and president of a large student group on campus during undergrad. I know my GPA is a little low but I'm hoping the rest can make up for it somehow? TIA
