  1. This is the seventh letter out of seven schools I applied to! Now the waiting game really begins
  2. Is there really such thing as scoring higher? I’d imagine that the curve would account for fluctuations in raw test scores.
  3. Here's a lighthearted joke you could use when conversing with other anxious 0L's: "So tell me, why do you want to become a lawyer?" "I want to help people." "Then why not become a cashier? You can help people bag their groceries!"
  4. This kind of makes me wonder how many other errors they've made where students aren't double checking..
  5. Applied last cycle and I remember it taking 2-3 days to activate.
  6. After completely bombing the LSAT and not getting any acceptances last cycle, I've gone through a complete change in mindset and rewrote it last week. Although am nervous about the score, am 100% confident that I performed better than last time! I feel much more calm this time around, and I think having experienced the initial stress of already going through an application cycle really shows things in a different light. If you're applying for the first time, relax and let things take their course! If things don't pan out for you this cycle, it's not the end of the world and there will always be future cycles to show your worth. Time goes by quickly - I was let down at first but before I knew it I was already applying for 2021 admission. Like all of you here, I'm very excited for what's to come!
  7. Hm that’s odd, they’ve received all my files except for LSAT (which I haven’t written yet, so my file is also incomplete). In other news, I haven’t even been able to sign into my Windsor account at all lol
  8. I second this. I too would not be here without Monica. Not only did she enable me to score a 188 on the LSAT, but thanks to her I now attend Harvard, Yale, AND Stanford
  9. This is probably basic advice, but for a lot of the SA questions that rely heavily on logic, you just have to identify the gap in the stimulus and then anticipate what fills in the gap, going into hunt mode when scanning the answer choices. Mapping out the logic can be useful, but if you can't do it mentally then write it down because they can get confusing. The same is with lots of NA questions. For NA questions, the negated correct answer will destroy the support that the premise(s) gives to the conclusion. Keep in mind that some NA questions also can be SA questions, but sometimes they will trick you by putting an SA answer in an NA question, so keep an eye out for those. I'd say that identifying the gap and trying to anticipate the correct answer choice is the most useful for me, though.
  10. Thank you! And yeah, turns out that including the diploma courses, I completed a total of 141 credits, which means that a whopping 30 will be dropped from the calculation. I ended up applying
  11. Update in case this may be useful for anyone else: they finally replied 6 weeks later and said that courses that did not count for credit in an undergraduate degree will still be used in GPA calculations!
  12. Not sure if this is the same issue, but when I try to log in it says that the account or password is incorrect. When I then follow the prompt to reset password, it says that my account is currently blocked from signing in! Hoping for some kind of fix soon, like I know it's really early but still, quite frustrating LOL
  13. One of the most important things here is that you are having these kinds of realizations early on! I was stubborn and didn't change majors until after first year (rip first year GPA lol). The fact that you are already thinking about these things this early shows that you are starting to be receptive and open minded. I second the advice given by everyone else here, and encourage you to just pursue something that you will enjoy, since there's a much higher chance you will excel. It's also great that you're at the beginning of your undergraduate journey since in theory you'll have so much more time to explore
  14. There seems to be a lot of unknowns here, but I'm pretty sure that bombing a midterm for only one course won't have THAT much of a significant impact if you keep all your other courses up to par. Have you written the LSAT?
  15. I was in the same boat as you, where my academic references were stronger than my Windsor non-academic one. From what I could find online, Western is the only school that will choose two random letters if supplied with three. As for the other schools, it seems like since two academic references are preferred, they will just choose to read the academic ones. But as other people on the forums have said, LORs are generally a drop in the bucket when compared to other, more important factors in the application so I wouldn't worry too much about it either way!
