@REmm Can't you just defer until 2019?

Unfortunately,  they don't grant deferrals for third year students in the process of completing their degree. Oh well - will just have to apply again next year. :)

Me too! 

CGPA 3.56 / LSAT 173 

Congrats! Is this before or after drops? If it’s before, was your GPA after drops significantly higher?

It was before drops, and as I'm not sure how they look at my exchange transcript, I'm not quite sure how much higher my GPA was after drops.  I had a reasonably smooth transcript though so I don't think it was MASSIVELY inflated with drops.  Maybe to a 3.6?  Certainly no more than 3.65

Accepted yesterday! 4.0/4.0 GPA (drops not relevant, as I've never gotten lower than an A), 152/162 LSAT.

I know people are geniuses, but how is this possible? What was your major?

Political science! Hopefully you saw my initial 152 LSAT -- proof that I am far from a genius! Ahahaha.

Best of luck to everyone waiting to hear back though. Such a stressful time for everyone!

    • Yes you would! Because you didn’t go back full time.  I think they probably weigh LSAT even more than regular category, since it’s the most recent indicator of academic performance for those of us with old/low GPAs. I haven’t got in and I don’t have high hopes, but we’ll see. My OLSAS cGPA ended up being 2.88. 
    • From my experience, I improved my grades drastically when I stopped implementing "boiler plate" statements of the law into my exams. If you are doing any pre-writes beforehand, I would recommend stopping, and instead focus the majority of your space (80%+) on analysis of the facts.  Additionally, ensure that you are showing both sides of every argument - avoid words like "clearly", "obviously" - if it was clear or obvious in the professor's mind, it probably wouldn't be on the exam. To address the clarity element your professor is referring to, I would recommend using lots of headings and sub-headings to divide the issues, so your prof knows specifically which you are speaking to.  If you aren't doing these things already and are able to implement them, you should definitely see some improvement! 
    • I just got my fall grades back and overall I did well. My lowest grade so far has been a B in Criminal Law. It was the criminal law exam I wanted to ask about. I got a B on the exam. My prof said that, while I had alot of good analysis, a lot of my analysis was muddled by irrelevant information. She also said that I am not precise in my writing, and sometimes it is difficult to determine what specific elements of the issue/problem I am trying to arrive at. I scheduled an official feedback session with her. Would there be anything anyone here could advise me on in terms of how to be more precise on exams, and filter out irrelevant information? Has anyone else had this problem? I will say that I panicked on this exam and did not think, at one point, that I was going to write anything at all. So during the exam I started writing and then did not have a lot of time to edit once I finished. I also believe that a B is a perfectly good grade considering my other grades were higher, but I would personally like to get a B+ in this course, considering the class average is a B/B+.
    • I have experience, but it depends on what you want to know exactly
    • Noted.  I will definitely consider UNB, although if you saw my transcript you would cringe, there's lots of 50's and 60's on there from a point in my life where I would have been satisfied with a business degree.  So I'm definitely relying on some of the more holistic schools lol.  I'm capable of much better than that but it's going to take some time or luck to "remedy my standing with God and men" as Machiavelli would say.
