Where does one check their status? Did the change happen where it used to say "applied" or is there somewhere else people are looking?

Just where it says applied

Congrats guys!

For anybody more in the know, are admissions usually in batches or do they roll out during the day?

I was just on the phone with one of the Western Admission Officers, I have very similar stats but have not heard back from Western. She told me she's waiting for my Dec LSAT score to come in even though I did score a good 16X on my Sept LSAT. So for those of you who are in the same boat, don't worry.

Is it acceptable to call in and inquire about your status? Like "hi my name is x, did i get in?"

It's just the first wave, there's plenty of time from here to April. Seems a touch early to be calling AdComm.

Yeah now is definitely not the time for panic. If you check past years, people with incredible stats didn't get in until February/March, even if they weren't waiting for an LSAT score.

I'm just hoping to hear back from at least one school by Christmas so I can confidently tell my family I'm going to law school next year.

I called because all my transcripts are from the States, and it took OLSAS insanely long to process/review them. At one point I realized Ottawa only received one of the two I send. Since I cannot track my document from Western, I decided to call Western just to be safe. Then I mentioned someone else got in.. And she told me they're waiting for my Dec LSAT.. I don't think it's a good idea to just call and ask about your stats. She didn't tell me anything about acceptance/rejection/waitlist based on my stats.

    • Non, c'est impossible, ce sont les crédits au moments de la demande d'admission.
    • Does anyone know if we can submit our Winter grades? Considering it would boost my cGPA. 
    • I have had to resort to a timer (count-down, not count-up) many times over the last few months. A timer is something I would occasionally resort to even in normal times, and would use a timer of between 25-45 minutes. Now sometimes I set a timer for 10 minutes just to get me actually doing something because there's no other way.
    • What do people recommend in terms of how I should organize materials? Whatever works for you. I found the easiest and cheapest method was hole-punching the top left corner and using rings I bought at Staples to separate each section. Professional cerlox binding looks nice but if you want to rearrange or there's an error, good luck fixing it yourself! Some people just use good old staplers. There's no right answer. The exam is largely a page-flipping exercise so your organization method should cater to this. Is it true to that it is recommended to just skip the whole Tax section? Don't skip anything. What you focus on is a different story. Better to update old indices or make my own or buy one? Like @baklava, I made mine in a group. It was annoying to do but probably helped a bit or at least it gave me peace of mind. I'd never have paid for an index though. If you read the materials, highlight well, and learn to work the ToC, you'll be fine. Where do I find old indices? My group worked from an index from friends who had written the bar the year prior. Should I be updating indices as I read the material? Or should I read all the material once, highlight it and then go back and update indices? If you plan to update indexes entirely on your own, as you read the materials, that sounds like a humungous waste of time with very limited payoff. Either work in a group or learn to use the ToC. Don't try and create an index by yourself, that is way too much work for one person. If you create a group index, yeah you just update as you read that section, so reading that section will take you longer than the rest. Is there a recommended amount of time we should spend on studying each day? Do the math yourself. How many pages do you need to read? How many days do you want to read them in? Divide one by the other. Read that many pages a day. Is it worth it buying practise exams and doing them? Do we have time to do them? Practice was absolutely essential for me. If you can access free exams great. If you can't, I guess you'll have to buy them?
