Writing Sample Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just did my writing sample and i believe I did a possibly dumb mistake. During the security verification I would leave the room to clear the room/move things around because I didnt like my environment scans (some things were in the background so I moved it to be safe as any violations). So after a few times of going back and fourth I finally completed my environment scan to my likings. I finished my security checks (id, environment, face etc.) and began my exam and did not leave the camera or anything while writing my sample. 

I remembered that LSAC says we are not allowed to leave the camera during the exam, so my question is, was the security checks also considered "during the exam"? Was me leaving the room during that time going to disqualify me? 

During the ACTUAL exam I stayed the whole time, it was just during the security checks where I would leave and come back. Is that an issue? I do not know if I am being dramatic, I just want to ensure I have no issues with my LSAT score being released on time after I take the actual test

No, you're fine. Don't stress. They only reject your writing sample if you do something questionable while writing the sample. And even if you get rejected, you can redo it. Seems like in your case, you should be approved.

That, I can't really answer. Personally, mine got approved after a week but for some other people it was more like 2-3 weeks. No set timeline.

    • I am a career advisor for law students and articling students who wish to obtain an objective advice on career, resume-building and interviewing techniques.

    • I am currently a student in the UBC-Sciences Po Dual Degree program. I spent the first two years of my degree at Sciences Po Paris and am concluding my final two years at UBC. At the end, I will graduate with two BAs (one from each university).  Does anyone have experience with navigating law school applications with a dual bachelor's degree, especially if one of the institutions you studied at was foreign?  In particular, I anticipate that a major challenge would lie in the calculation of my GPA over the course of my studies given half of my grades will be in terms of French grading standards and the other half in terms of UBC's grading standards, if an overall calculation can even be made. I am also unsure as to how drops would be calculated in my case.  Explaining the dual degree program and why my transcripts look the way they do is probably going to be another obstacle seeing as the program is relatively small and unknown, but I anticipate that I would have the space to do this in my personal statement. I'm not sure if I'd need to provide any corroborating information besides that, however.  Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Does it matter when you submit your application? I'm in group B and submitted applications about an hour or two before the deadline. Haven't heard anything yet
    • Thanks for sharing! Best of luck with your application!
