JAN LSAT

Recommended Posts

I know Osgoode does accept the Jan LSAT, though does anyone know of people who have gotten in having written it? 

 

I got a 158 on the Sept LSAT and don't think the November Lsat is enough time to dramatically increase,  will Osgoode seriously consider my Jan score?

If you’re a borderline candidate and indicated that you’re writing the January LSAT, the committee will hold your file until your new scores come in. Whether or not you get in depends largely on how much you improved. This is also where doing more than 2 writes may be a disadvantage if you are doing your third write in January: if you have been consistently low for two tests, it’s possible the committee will put less priority on re-reviewing your file once you get that third write in.

Your cGPA and LSAT are not competitive for OZ. Are you applying elsewhere?

(Not competitive doesn't mean you don't have any chance )

I know. I am applying to all Ontario schools. Though, that's why I am considering the Jan LSAT, i think by Jan I will be able to increase the score a lot.

Before you rewrite, just know that admissions will look at decreased scores unfavourably. I had someone from admissions tell me that this past week.

I got into Oz last year with a 3.54 CGPA and 3.9 L2. OP’s grades are in my opinion competitive. 

I also wrote the February (at the time, the “january” lsat was administered in February) LSAT and improved my December score from 154 to a 160 in February. I got into Oz in June. I think honestly the only reason I got in that late was because I wrote my LSAT late.

OP, in sum, has a good shot (in my opinion) with his/her current grades and if his/her LSAT score shoots above a 160.

    • ... Are you serious? Aren’t you a practicing lawyer? I think it should be fairly obvious why disclosing, publicly, that you’re researching a specific issue and reviewing a specific, not well known case could be problematic.  It’s not a serious confidentiality issue, but it certainly could develop into one.  People really underestimate how much information can be gleaned from tangential stuff. Hedge funds buy private plane flight data so that they can track when planes take unusual flight paths – you may not think anything of the fact that a jet owned by Occidental Petroleum landed at Epply Airfield, but investors saw it and jumped on it, two days before Occidental announced a $10 billion investment by Berkshire Hathaway to aid in an acquisition. And though it’s unlikely to matter here, as a supervisor I would wonder what my employee was disclosing to people in person if they’re comfortable posting on a public forum about the specific task they’re assigned 
    • I practise family law and run a paperless practice. On each file, I maintain 2 active Microsoft Word documents. I diligently update both documents whenever there is movement on a file. They help refresh my memory during calls/meetings with clients and could potentially defend a LAWPRO years down the road. When it comes to a trial, they can even help me organize my direct/cross examinations and opening/closing statements. It is worth spending half an hour each day just updating these documents for each file (non-billable of course). A Chronology Document - This document helps you keep track what happened on each file organized by date. How much detail you put into each entry depends on what happened and your "gut feelings" about vulnerabilities and concerns etc. For example:  (Imagine this is a chart because I have -100 iq when it comes to post formatting). July 5, 2020 - Client intake. Client shared suspicion of infidelity of spouse and wisdom of retaining a private investigator. Client may return to sign retainer re: begin divorce process. Concerns: Client is a stay-at-home mom who is financially vulnerable. Possible domestic violence incident. No police involvement. Provided client with domestic violence safety kit and advised client to stay with other family members. See debrief letter date JULY-05-2020 re: advice given. July 29, 2020 - Client moved out of matrimonial home with three children. Currently residing with parents in CITY by STREET/STREET. Pickup/dropoff ongoing, transition at school. Client called at 11:34 p.m. re: service of Application. Duration: 8 minutes. Advised client to remain flexible with pickup/drop off. August 8, 2020 - Application served and issued on O.P. with retaining letter advising O.P. to seek legal representation. Request to Admit to follow upon Answer. A Summary Document - although I believe that most law firm intake forms set out the basic information of each client. I like to keep everything in a single document, especially considering that clients don't always provide everything upfront (or may not realize something is important). A lot of important information I learn from my clients often come from small talks while waiting for court and pleasantries regarding the well-being of their children. You can also include a "to do" section which reminds you of important dates. This document is organized in different tables under the heading "client info," "children info," "spouse info," etc. A lot of the information here is not found on the intake forms (e.g. name of camp counselor of a child). Whenever I have a call/meeting with a client, I have both documents open to remind myself of the names of important parties, what happened recently, next steps, important date etc. When it comes to trial, I cross-reference important events in my charts with the file. File Naming Nomenclature - It helps to put some effort into how you label electronic files. Good electronic file organization helps when you are looking for something in a hurry.  Name folders properly and date each file. Add a little blurb in the title.  One of my biggest file reached 1 GB from all the financial document scans. E.g. JULY-05-2020 FORM 8 APPLICATION_Draft 1_re Childcare Issues & Property. Hope I provided you with some ideas to try.
    • Why would that be upsetting to the lawyer? What an odd thing to be upset about.
