  1. I present to you the ultimate counter-offer: 25 1991 Toyota Corolla’s. If you’re a shrewd negotiator you can get these beautiful rust puppies for $500 a pop and have a fleet of 30 of them with that sweet extra cash.
  2. Between cGPA and L2 schools, which cohort of schools do you believe is more lenient grades-wise? I was talking to a friend about the case of two students outlined below, who other than their grades, have identical profiles (LSAT score, degree, work experience, EC’s, etc...): Student 1: 3.7 cGPA, 3.7 L2 (Stronger cGPA/B3 student) Student 2: 3.5 cGPA, 3.9 L2 (Stronger L2 student) What do you believe is more likely: Student 1 gets into schools such as Western and Queens, or Student 2 gets into schools such as Osgoode and Ottawa? We were stumped on this and though there is negligible differences in opportunity, but I would love to hear some opinions on this! Edit: Queens is a B2 school but for the sake of this comparison assume Student 2’s B2 is also their L2
  3. True, but it is hard to know how representative that figure is of the actual proportion of filled seats the school currently has secured. There’s two competing forces at play here. On one end, I doubt the overwhelming majority of students getting offers are active on the accepted thread sharing their stats, and conversely, we can’t assume they will have a 100% yield rate. Regardless of how many seats are filled, keep being hopeful everyone! School’s start their year in September, so there is still a little while to go
  4. Thank you so much for all of this info and for a much needed reminder on the value of potentially looking elsewhere in the test to scrape up a few extra points! To be honest I’ve recently fallen into the “logic games is learnable, so consistently hitting perfect or near perfect should be the achievable norm” mindset some members of the LSAT subreddit have. While that is true for some, albeit with sometimes a very long studying plan, you’re right in that looking to LR for a few extra points (where I am currently hitting -6 to -8, so good catch haha) is likely a good idea. For LR there are still a few question types I’m a touch shaky on at times that I should probably be hammering out in the remaining month and a half I have before my first write. Comparatively, for LG I can consistently hit 0 to -2 if given 40ish minutes. For these it’s entirely a matter of getting them done on time, as virtually all of the marks I’m losing on these come in the last two games regardless of the game type. Looks like I kind of talked myself into an answer given your advice. I feel as though I will improve more if I better understand my currently shaky LR question types than to be reliant on getting a few extra points from hammering away at tons of LG questions. With the remaining practice tests I’ll get more LG exposure anyways.
  5. I’ve been studying exclusively with the lsat trainer and have been consistently PT’ing in the low 160’s. I am still having a little trouble with logic games though, as I’m getting consistently -2 to -4 on this section. Knowing that this section can be learnable down to a 0 to -2 range, what else could I be using to improve my logic game scores?
  6. Yeah sorry about that, I’m trying to strike a balance between being providing enough information and not doxxing myself. The 1 year program is research, reading, and writing heavy, in the social sciences, and it has little professional crossover or employability beyond getting a PhD. This degree’s content is very interesting to me, but I’m not sold on getting a PhD for an array of reasons. As for the 2 year program, I don’t want to commit to too much, but it deals with environmental matters and OyVey might be on to something with the masters programs they name dropped. I find the content equally as fascinating as the 1 year option, and it is a professional degree with strong professional crossover.
  7. To be honest I have not heavily considered taking a year off, working, or volunteering - not by choice, but simply because I have kind of forced a “straight through schooling” expectation on myself for some reason. These are all great points that I’ll have to consider when deciding what to do. As for posts that point to me potentially not being worried about spending the money, you are right in that money is not a concern for me in this next year. Fortunately both programs place me in a net positive when weighing tuition/potential living costs and the amount of funding I received.
  8. Hey all! Long time lurker, first time poster. My first test date is set for June 2021 and I am super confused on what my next step should be in my academic journey. Below is all the relevant info that I think is important to mention. Finishing my degree this month. Expected cGPA is 3.55, expected L2 is 3.88 (can change slightly, this is including my expected grades this semester). No official LSAT scores yet, but I am consistently PT’ing between 161-163, my goal is to get to the mid 160’s by test day. I currently have two masters program offers. The first program is one year in length with very little professional opportunity. The second program is two years in length with tremendous professional opportunity (would lead to a career in my second favourite career type, only behind law). With all of this in mind, am I foolish to do the two year masters and leave halfway through if I get in somewhere in the 2022 cycle? Would an admissions committee not accept me knowing that I’m only halfway done a masters program? Would OCI’s or employers early in my career care? I guess it is also worthwhile to ask where any of you think I’d have a decent shot to get in (Ontario schools only). I appreciate any feedback :)
