Taking both Oct + Nov LSAT... OLSAS Question.

Recommended Posts

Not sure how to phrase this question. Basically, I took the October LSAT and am wondering if OLSAS will wait for my November score to 'send' to schools (I am signed up for that one, too, and noted it on my OLSAS app), or if the ON schools I applied to could potentially adjudicate me on my October score (then if the November score is better, great). Although, if the school's request the score (from LSAC or OLSAS?) then would they request it after the October scores or out, or would they wait for my November score if I've indicate that I'm signed up for both? I'm unfamiliar with how OLSAS handles the sending/receiving of LSAT scores.

Really hoping this made sense, it did in my head, lol. Naturally, I want to know ASAP if these schools will let me in haha. Thanks!

So many  ifs in your question.

My reply is "may be".

What are your stats and which schools are you applying?

don't have the lsat score yet. applying pretty much everywhere in canada but in ON, windsor and bora laskin. applying indigenous so its not really index-based admissions in most places (as im sure you know). olsas cgpa should be 3.55, L2 3.71. 

im mostly just wondering about timelines

LSAC will have the October scores available at the normal time (they won't care, on their end, that you're registered to write in November, as well). However, it is up to each individual school whether they actually look at your file with the October number, or wait for the November one. As such, I recommend you ask this question individually of each school, if it will affect your strategy.

    • I’m applying to all of them. I have a low GPA so I’m hoping maybe Ryerson, queens, western. But I’m very open to anyone who will take me lmao 
    • My file says "complete ready for review." It also says they received my LSAT score yesterday, but on LSAC it doesn't show they've requested it. I'm assuming they'll wait to request them until the early admissions window is closed (at least).
    • Yes I have used the GPA calculators just I can't believe my eyes.    So upon looking at what schools im eligible to apply for, I'm realizing I caluculating my GPA lower than it actually is.    My understanding is Queens and UVIC use 4.33 as well as Dalhousie. All of which im applying to. My CGPA through my degree is 84.8. Am I right to say that this means I have a 4.0 on their scales?    My LSAT is: 162  If that's the case where can I apply with a 4.0 and 162?   
    • I have slightly different advice from the above (although I agree that your perception your peers are better off than you is probably wrong!).  You wrote that you're doing a lot of reading and briefing, but struggling with the application. It sounds like you need to focus more of your study time to that. You can do that through practice questions/tests, but I also just recommend making up your own hypotheticals in your head. I always would try to simplify it to the most basic and relatable terms. A lot of 1Ls say they struggle with the old cases because of the language, but I think it's also that the facts of cases aren't relatable. So try applying the rule to relatable problems. I may not be explaining this well. Feel free to PM me with a rule/case and I can give a concrete example of what I meant.  Learning the law matters so much less than being able to apply it, and it sounds like that's where you're struggling right now. 
    • I'd say my extra cirriculars are strong but I'm worried my GPA will ultimately hold me back
