Chances - 3.52cgpa/3.6L2/162 LSAT

Recommended Posts

Hello, just hoping to get a feel for my chances at Western, uOttawa, and Queens.

Great job experience, sub-par volunteering/extra-curriculars, decent references, and what I feel is a pretty good personal statement.

I will almost certainly be averaging above a 3.7 this semester, and I am rewriting the LSAT Dec. 2nd because a 162 was definitely my floor (half my wrong answers were in the last 14 questions - damn that judicial candor). PTs put me between 164 and 168, but I'd still appreciate a straight appraisal of the stats listed in the title.

Thanks!

I am confident in saying you are probably in at all. Might be around March/April for Queen’s/Western. Earlier for Ottawa. 

Good luck :)

Thanks all! Really gunning for Queen's.

 

Tip wise - I really liked The LSAT Trainer book, condenses info way more than powerscore. But ultimately just buying packets of old LSATs and doing them under the actual conditions is, I believe, the best way to study. In studying for my second write I'm actually redoing each practice test a day or two after first writing it which I heard would help and I think it is. 

I didn't go for memorizing structure and word paths, just repetition taught me most about LR. LG obviously takes a bunch of memorizing diagramming and getting used to the most efficient routes to answer. I honestly didn't even study RC cause it was never a problem until the actual test... that is now changing but tbh I lost track of time in the Sept 2017  RC section and I know I must have been just wiped (RC was my final section) because I also didn't just temporarily skip the judicial candor text but instead kept rereading a paragraph at a time #ragrets

So ya, definitely do PT's with your watch on the desk not with a phone timer (like I practiced), really learn the types of LG and best diagram practices which work for you, and for LR just repetition. 

Again though, I only got a 162 so take my advice with a grain of salt lol, though I would mention that before hand I was averaging a 166 and I'm now averaging a 167.

Hey! Any tips/advice on the LSAT? Hopefully you get in your choices x

To add on, focus on your timing! Do strict timed sections and exams and make sure you are testing your timing strategy (for LR for example, I aim to do the first 10 questions in 9-10 mins).

    • Hi everyone, I am at the bottom half of the waitlist and I don't think I'll get in this year. Do you have any suggestions for spending a gap year? To those who have applied for more than one cycle, I would be very grateful if you could share your experiences. Many thanks!
    • I've been told that we won't hear anything until very end of June/early July. I asked them whether rolling admissions occurred and they said no. 
    • I am considering a career change from tech to law, and have a background in software development & technology sales. My interest in pursuing law would fall squarely within the realm of privacy, data governance, and emerging technology (specifically explainable AI). In looking around I see there are a few schools that have named institutes or a general focus on law and tech (Dal, UofO, York, UofT, Ryerson), but I am interested in how much of those cirricula relate to IP/patent law vs. privacy and data governance. I assume that IP law and data governance might have significant overlap or will in the near future. I am not really interested in patent law or software licenses. Can anyone who is familiar with these streams comment on your experience and what the focus tends to be at your institution? Do I have an unrealistic expectation of what law school is by thinking I can focus on this narrow intersection of law and tech? I am in the process of reaching out to admissions but I would also like to hear first-hand experiences. Thanks for your time!
    • I sent mine through TD and it has definitely left my account.  I just don't know who to contact at the university because the finance email said they would get back to me in 3 business days, and common law said they have no way of letting me know if it has been received.  
    • Cancelled my offer recently so a spot should open up!
