  1. am so glad to have found this group. Hoping you all can help me! I am 38 years old - mother of 2 toddlers, finally after many years I hav been thinking about pursuing my life long dream of becoming a lawyer. I did my undergrad 16 years ago when we were new immigrants trying to settle in Canada, with all the family issues and having to earn a living in Canada while studying, my school took the back seat and I ended up with a terrible GPA (2.7). My only law school of choice is Ryerson and where they look at best 2 years of undergrad, my b2 GPA is 3.2. I am willing to give it my all in all other aspects of the application. Do u think I still have a shot or it's too far fetched and is just better as a dream. I dont know if I can invest time and money in getting another undergrad. Will that improve my chances atall? Thanks so much!
  2. Nevermind - I thought u said L2 not B2 ..my bad I think Ryerson looks at your Best 2 years GPA , not L2. whats your best 2 years GPA?
  3. I recently purchased the 7sage course and have started studying since the beginning of April. I am doing a very slow paced study ( with COVID, I am working from home and have 2 kids at home so sadly studying is not the top priority) but whatever I have been studying I am enjoying it and it's all making sense to me. JY's ( instructor) teaching style is so engaging and very easy to follow. I bought the 12 month ultimate package and I don't regret it.
  4. Aww that's very encouraging, thanks so much
  5. Hello All, I am planning to apply to Ryerson Law school for 2021. I am a mature student ( 38 years). I am yet to take my LSAT ( started 7sage CC a week ago). I have a undergrad with very average GPA. Being a mother of 2 for the last few years -- all I have done is raise them with a full-time job in HR. So I don't have any ' Extra Curricular activities' other than participating in charity, fundraising events at work. How important is EC for applying to Ryerson? and what can I do now until the application submission to add something in EC to boost my application? ( This COVID situation is not helping my case either). Thanks!
  6. Hi All, Question in title! Just curious what you all think?
  7. Hello All, I am thinking about going for the 7sage prep course to begin my LSAT prep. On their website, it says that they are changing their packages effective March 29th given the changes implemented by LSAC of $99 membership and all. I am wondering that is it in my favour to buy one of their current packages that they have now or does it make more sense to buy the new package they will have starting March 29th. It seems that the major difference between their current packages is the # of LSAT questions explained and # of LSAT exam with videos. if you recommend buying from their current packages, which one is sufficient ( don't wanna send extra money if I don't need to ( What's the best approach that you would suggest? Thanks a Ton!!! Shelby
  8. cool..I ordered it today from amazon, thanks for this tip
  9. Thanks a lot, this is very helpful. I am trying to decide between the 2 books below, not sure which one of these would best to buy for gaining fundamental knowledge on all sections prior to my online prep course. what do you think? LSAT Prep Plus 2020-2021: Strategies for Every Section + Real LSAT Questions + Online The LSAT Trainer: A Remarkable Self-Study Guide For The Self-Driven Student
  10. thanks so much everyone, I am feeling very encouraged to get started. I will most likely sign up with the ultimate + from 7sage. I do see that they are making updates to their packages starting march 29th with the change introduced by LSAC so will wait until March 29th to sign up. is there any specific book you recommend that I should read in next 10 days to understand the fundamentals of LSAT? With this whole self isolation, schools closed etc, it hasn't been easy to find the time to study. What do you think is the best window for me to take LSAT, given the Nov 1 application deadline? I really don't want to think about having to take LSAT the second time, but still need to keep a buffer if I need to improve my score. Thanks again. I am so glad to have found this group. Shelby
  11. Hello All, I am really hoping to get some help from all you. I am 38 years old ( mother of 2), I have always dreamt of becoming a lawyer but never thought I could until now. I have now made a decision to follow my dream and give it my all. I have a decent career in HR with a top employer, however, I don't see myself doing it for the rest of my life. I have been doing a lot of thinking in terms of how hard will it be to be back at studying at this age with 2 kids n all. but I think I have decided that it's now or never. I am mainly looking at applying to Ryerson Law school for 2021. I am getting very confused as to how I should begin studying for LSAT, I have done a couple of free practice tests online and needless to say, I found it very tricky and hard, so I definitely need good coaching on how to think and approach the questions. My 3 years bachelor degree from York was back in 2004 and I wasn't as smart back then, so I will need to score really good on LSAT to cover my 3.2 GPA. Can you please guide me, I am thinking of taking my LSAT in July so I have enough time to prepare my application for the November 1, 2020 deadline. Please help. Thanks Shelby
