Recommended Posts

Cancelling your score will look worse than "Dec 2017 -crap score" "June 2018 'good score"

Wait you mean the writing sample? You know it's not scored, right? It doesn't count for anything, and I'd wager no schools in Canada even look at it..

And do.you mean the unmarked writing section? Either way, don't cancel.

And good luck on your mark.

* the writing sample, yes. 

I know it isn't marked, I'm just worried if they read it they'll think I'm totally incompetent.

If youbl get a good Lsat mark, no one will think you're incompetent. 

They might not look at it.

I don't remember mine to tell you the truth.

Plus, it's at the end of a grueling test, as long as you wrote in english, they'll be a bit forgiving.

Definitely cancel. Schools will read your atrocious writing and think you're an incompetent goon. 

I'm definitely 100% kidding, trying to hinder the competition! 

With respect to the sample though does anyone have any reliable information as to how important it is? I feel like I made a good argument in mine, but my handwriting is atrocious, so it's almost as if I wrote nothing depending who reads it.

Remember- if you cancel you're going to have to rewrite.

If your writing sample is giving you nightmates at night-(&you didn't cancel) you can always rewrite. =same outcome

You might as well know your score if the outcome is the same. (Plus, you may have scored so high you won't care anymore about the writing sample).

I think the schools only receive your writing sample if they request it, they don't get automatically sent it...and either way, they don't care overly. They realize you've just written a long exam.

Considering Western basically just made up their own writing sample question for Part B of the PS this year, I firmly believe almost no schools really care about it. I scribbled mine down in ten minutes and sat around for the remainder in September. It really doesn't matter.

If I was interested in evaluating a student's writing ability, I would ask them for a writing sample, not look at some thing they scrawled after an exhausting test.

They don't care about your writing sample at all. I remember mine was so illegible, I couldn't even read what I wrote myself.

My personal theory is that some schools cross-reference your writing sample to your personal statement just to verify that you can, in fact, write coherently in english and didn't hire someone to write your law school applications for you. I have nothing to back that up, it's just a theory. :)

^ this. Look, they realize that you just went though a gruelling and nerve-wracking test. I think, even if they look at it, they'd be less critical if you accidentally answered a different question coherently vs answering the actual question in a completely incomprehensible way. I wouldn't stress.

    • This is true, but no toddler to break up the monotony by adding an element of chaos and unpredictability 😂
    • reçu mon offre d'acceptation aujd! cote r de 30,245  Bonne chance à tous !  
    • I just finished 1L at Windsor and wanted to say that this year, i think around 4-5 1Ls got bay st positions (not myself lol)....which is honestly awesome. Yes, im sure other schools placed more BUT 4-5 is a big step up from 1. Additionally, this isnt even counting those that got intern positions or jobs outside the formal 1L recruit. I think Windsor sometimes gets dumped on but the student body is really strong imo...and trust me im not afraid to comment on the not so great parts of windsor, but the student body isnt one.  If your interest is Criminal law, Tanovich still teaches 1L crim and he rocks. Unreal teacher (and i agree with sportsball on the teaching v academia point) and one of the most revered criminal law academics in the country. Some great opportunities in criminal law anywhere, Windsor included! 
    • And you guys have semesters to break the year up! I've been slogging through the same crap day after day since last March.
    • It seems like we are all suffering, which is comforting to hear (though a little sad too).  Except you bastards who are all done for the semester. I am very envious. @TobyFlenderson today I plan on treating myself to some studying with breaks, rather than just breaks, per your suggestion 😅 @Jaggers, I think you're right, the monotony of zoom life just drains all motivation. I feel like I'm living the plot of Groundhog Day.
