January Re-write.. But all test centres in area unavailable???

Recommended Posts

Upon receiving my very disappointing score, I decided to immediately schedule a re-write. It's showing that all test centres within a 3 hour or less drive are unavailable... I'm freaking out. What do I do?

I'm from Toronto, and the only options are Cornwall, Thunderbay, Windsor, Kingston.... etc. This hasn't ever happened to me before.

Go to Kingston, take the train and study on it! Treat yourself to business class, even. At least you have transit options!

I have to drive 4 hours to Havre, MT to write the November test. At least I get a story out of it and will buy some Montana State - Northern University. ;)

Hey check again and change your location to Ontario and scroll through the location list. I just got a spot at Sheraton Toronto by Pearson. Good luck and keep checking!

All you have to do is call up LSAC and let them know you would like to write it in your city. If there are enough people, they will open a second test centre in your city! That was what happened with me in Ottawa. Don't panic.

This was the same problem with earlier test dates, after I did my sept test, I couldn't get OCT/NOV testing dates nearby so I booked January like 2 months ago. 

Im also from GTA and the only locations available to me back then was windsor, cornwall, etc. I know someone else who was put on the waitlist and had to drive to windsor from GTA.

Has anyone heard anything from LSAC about opening up new centers in Toronto/the GTA

They told me they can't be certain that anything will open up so I ended up just signing up for Sudbury....road trip it is.

January isn't a good time to be making a road trip from Toronto to Sudbury!

Did you try to request Change test center ? I did that twice and paid a fee.

Just a heads up I reserved a seat without specifying a location. Apparently LSAC will email sometime before the test with the closest open location.

    • Your conclusion is essentially contradicted by your story. All I got from that story was it is easier to get an A at Osgoode than UNB. 
    • And I just saw that you decided, haha. Excellent choice! 
    • UVic is perfect for what you are interested in! Very indigenous focused even if you aren't a JD/JID (which seems like an amazing program as well). There is a very active environmental law club here as well as a legal clinic. UVic also has some of the leading professors in indigenous law (John Borrows, Val Napoleon + a lot of other fantastic profs). Tuition is MUCH cheaper here too, which more than offsets the cost of living. I was offered a $20K scholarship to go to Western and it was still way cheaper to go to UVic sans scholarship. Most of my tuition this year was covered by bursaries anyways. Everyone is very collegial here, midterms are help-not-hurt, and the weather is amazing for most of the year. UVic also has a great Co-op program with lots of cool job placements that you can get into right off your first year.  In terms of negatives: Victoria is expensive (and possibly inconvenient geographically). But it is a fun place to live and the lower tuition offsets things significantly.  I obviously haven't gone to Osgoode, but the idea that any school in Canada is more prestigious is nonsense IMO. Employers are more interested in your personal background than which school you went to. The only difference between an Osgoode grad and a UVic grad at the end of the day is that Osgoode is probably out an extra $50-70K for the same degree.  With your LSAT score the biggest problem you should have is which scholarships to turn down!
    • I am with CIBC for about 7 years now, and my father was with them for close to 15 years. So, I thought I'd see what they offered for student loans. My credit score is above average. So, it isn't terrible.     Last month, I went to talk to CIBC about securing a PSLOC. The loan officer wasn't rude per se, but how should I put it? They were the opposite of obsequious. They were very stern, and it felt like they could care less if they got my business or not.  They offered prime plus 1%, I tried negotiating on the rate but they wouldn't budge. They required a cosigner. They wanted copies of mine and my father's tax returns and pay stubs before they give any more details about the LOC. Details like how much I'd get approved for.  Perhaps the person I talked to wasn't experienced with PSLOCs or it was just a bad apple, but I just walked out when they wouldn't give me more info.  I spoke with RBC the week after, and they offered prime plus 0.5% with no payment required on the principal until 2 years after graduation. I believe they said they could approve up to 85k. Also, that we can do an application without cosigner, and if it comes back negative then we do one with cosigner. They were very cordial and accommodating. I spoke with Scotia after that and they offered everything RBC did but better. They offered prime plus 0%. The same no principal payments until 2 years after graduation. They could approve up to 135k. The same deal with the cosigner that RBC said. They sweetened the deal further by offering a 10k credit card on top            I wanted to speak with TD after that, but Scotia won me over, so I didn't even bother meeting with TD.   Also, keep in mind, I haven't submitted the application yet. I am just in the initial phase of doing research and collecting info. These are just my experiences with interacting with these 3 banks regarding a PSLOC. I am still waiting on one more university to decide where I want to go before I file an application. 
    • law schools want at the latest, a january score, if you've applied that cycle. the notorious windsor only takes up until the november lsat yup, that's also enough time to study good luck man
