Chance me! cGPA: 3.79 (OLSAS) LSAT: 164

Recommended Posts

Average PS and letters of recommendation. B2 level French. I'm getting nervous after not hearing back from McGill or Osgoode for so long. I wrote my LSAT in August 2020 and it is my only attempt. Regarding my GPA, I have one "Pass-Fail" course on my transcript. I have strong EC (not much work experience but a lot of leadership and mock trial stuff). Please let me know what you think!

Someone got in to McGill this year with basically almost the same stats as you! Honestly all depends on how you presented yourself on your cv and ps and references as McGill tends to look at those heavily.

I have similar stats (3.73, 166) and I am also waiting to hear from Osgoode and McGill. Getting super anxious, but I think all we can do is wait and try not to lose our minds. I'm also a mature student - I am not sure how that factors into the admission decision. Hang in there!

i'm a mature re-applicant with similar stats as well

mature candidates tend to get interviewed which means later rounds of admission, not always the case though

we're still fairly early in the process, so a lack of response is normal

I was notified this morning but I’m surprised I heard this early.

    • Non, c'est impossible, ce sont les crédits au moments de la demande d'admission.
    • Does anyone know if we can submit our Winter grades? Considering it would boost my cGPA. 
    • I have had to resort to a timer (count-down, not count-up) many times over the last few months. A timer is something I would occasionally resort to even in normal times, and would use a timer of between 25-45 minutes. Now sometimes I set a timer for 10 minutes just to get me actually doing something because there's no other way.
    • What do people recommend in terms of how I should organize materials? Whatever works for you. I found the easiest and cheapest method was hole-punching the top left corner and using rings I bought at Staples to separate each section. Professional cerlox binding looks nice but if you want to rearrange or there's an error, good luck fixing it yourself! Some people just use good old staplers. There's no right answer. The exam is largely a page-flipping exercise so your organization method should cater to this. Is it true to that it is recommended to just skip the whole Tax section? Don't skip anything. What you focus on is a different story. Better to update old indices or make my own or buy one? Like @baklava, I made mine in a group. It was annoying to do but probably helped a bit or at least it gave me peace of mind. I'd never have paid for an index though. If you read the materials, highlight well, and learn to work the ToC, you'll be fine. Where do I find old indices? My group worked from an index from friends who had written the bar the year prior. Should I be updating indices as I read the material? Or should I read all the material once, highlight it and then go back and update indices? If you plan to update indexes entirely on your own, as you read the materials, that sounds like a humungous waste of time with very limited payoff. Either work in a group or learn to use the ToC. Don't try and create an index by yourself, that is way too much work for one person. If you create a group index, yeah you just update as you read that section, so reading that section will take you longer than the rest. Is there a recommended amount of time we should spend on studying each day? Do the math yourself. How many pages do you need to read? How many days do you want to read them in? Divide one by the other. Read that many pages a day. Is it worth it buying practise exams and doing them? Do we have time to do them? Practice was absolutely essential for me. If you can access free exams great. If you can't, I guess you'll have to buy them?
