Use of Predictive Index Score

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to know is using the Predictive Index Score Formula was actually a helpful tactic in determining admissions chances. I'm using a formula I found on the forum (not the one from 2010)

My top choice for school is the University of Alberta

GPA*(22.5 or 22.0)+LSAT Score. I'm under the impression that 242 (at the UofA) is auto admit but since looking at the forums I've seen that this can be misleading. 

Please let me know if the formula I'm using is trash and whether or not the Score is even worth using.

It's obviously not a guarantee, but it's generally predictive. As the cycle goes on, we see index scores and stats (especially confirmed ones) go down.

Thanks for the info, also I'm looking for infor regarding how the admission cycles work and what the general principles are the dictate early admission, 2nd round, holistic etc.

I haven't looked much into the cycles and am just starting to do research and was wondering if you could provide a starting point.

    • For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did?  2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?  
    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
