  1. Accepted today! It really is an honour. Will likely accept. -cGPA: 3.84 -L2: 4.0 -LSAT: 159 Masters degree (health science/clinical) 2000+ hrs volunteering with marginalized individuals and with Indigenous communities. Direct ties to mandate. Hang in there guys. I know how brutal this process is
  2. 4. I can speak to this one. As a current applicant, I can really identify with what you are describing. This process is pretty gruelling.. especially when you start to feel left out and begin questioning every aspect of your application in an attempt to find flaws. And then you find flaws and obsess on them compulsively. You begin saying to yourself, why did I word myself like that? Why did I not mention this? Is this even grammatically correct!?? But I digress πŸ˜› Supporting your own mental health & wellbeing during journey is crucial. I think this will look a bit different for everyone. I realized I had to make some changes when I found myself checking OLSAS (and this forum) first thing in the AM and before I went to bed lol. I noticed a change in my own wellbeing when I began focusing on things that I can control (rather than fixating on the unknowns and what ifs). I created a detailed plan outlining what I will do next year if I am not accepted this cycle. The more I outlined and fine tuned my plan, the more I realized- hey, if I am not accepted this cycle, my life will go on... and it will be just fine. Law school will come together when the timing is right. I'll get there, it's just a matter of when. So yeah, I suppose my biggest piece of advice is to focus on the things you CAN control. This has helped me
  3. If you lacked preparation and scored 142, imagine what you are capable of if you really put in dedicated study time? You can and will do it when the timing is right!
  4. I think JY’s practice exams will give you a pretty good indication of what you’re capable of scoring closer to test time. If you are close to your target score, write in Aug. if you are not, consider cancelling/rescheduling. I studied 8 hrs a day, 6 days a week for 60 days and scored 158 on my first attempt. I was practicing in the low 160s. I am pretty anxious test taker. Some people who have taken logical reasoning in undergrad may need far less study time. It totally depends. Do many, many practice exams under proper timed conditions and that will be your answer as to whether or not your ready best of luck!
  5. hahahah thank-you.... i'm a little less optimistic these days but i'm TRYING πŸ˜›
  6. I know, isn't it crazy how one C or B can impact cGPA..
  7. Ahh you think so?? I think the reality that Western Law received an unusually high number of applications this year is really making me question myself. Thank you for taking the time to reply πŸ™‚
  8. Yes! Each grade individually converted as per OLSAS. Western is the only school I am seriously considering.
  9. Hi! I wrote 30+ practice tests on 7Sage and was usually in the low 160s, so I do think that 158 was representative of where I was at when I wrote in November. Mind you, the tenant in the apartment above me was drilling and hammering throughout my test (LOL) so I lost focus at times. Maybe it impacted my score but who knows.. probably just an excuse to make me feel better πŸ˜›
  10. Would you rewrite if you were in my position? LSAT: 158 cGPA: 3.84 L2: 3.99 L3: 3.98 Masters degree Thank-you so much.
  11. Mine was visible this AM but just vanished. Hm! πŸ€” Maybe the website is being glitchy
