Oh Canada! / Re: How are the canadian applicants doing?
« on: October 24, 2004, 02:21:34 PM »
I'm so glad that I've decided to wait until Fall 2006 to go to law school... I don't think that I would have handled working on my applications well this year, as this is the toughest semester of my life.  I spend 12+ hours per week in labs, and about 8 of those hours are spent looking for equipment that doesn't exist and/or fixing equipment that doesn't work.  Infuriating!!

At this time next year, when all I have to do is work, I'll have so much free time to write stupid essays and personal statements, AND I will also have a real job to put into my resume, so then I can claim to whatever law schools I apply to that I have, indeed, lived in "the real world" for some time  :D

This seems to be especially important to the UofC...

Oh Canada! / Re: SIN question
« on: October 24, 2004, 02:16:16 PM »
LOL Cheeks, the exact same thing happened to me!  I didn't sign up with my SIN number on the LSAC, because I'm a little paranoid about giving out that info over the internet (and rightly so). 

Imagine my suprise on Thursday when I got that letter... I was freaked!  I figured that since the LSAC was so busy right now, that there was no way my score wouldn't be delayed.  But I faxed my letter in on Friday morning, and had my score by Saturday evening...

Silly LSAC.

Oh Canada! / Re: Canadians Post Thier Scores
« on: October 24, 2004, 02:05:28 PM »
166...

With my 3.73GPA (last 2 yrs) in a double degree program (B.Sc. Chem, B.A. English Lit.), the future looks bright.

I'm so glad that Canadians don't have to worry about the standardized testing as much as they do in America  8)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: post your score here
« on: October 24, 2004, 01:48:25 PM »
Whoa, what a weekend!!

I didn't sleep Wednesday and Thursday night, because I had several lab reports due this week, and I had to get everything done on Friday.  Then, Friday night, I went out to my friend's birthday, and got so drunk that I passed out in the cab, and my (also drunk) boyfriend had to physically carry me into his house and pay our $44 fare. 

I spent all of Saturday recovering.  Then, Saturday night, I was like: "Oh yeah, the LSAT!  I wonder if my score is up yet?"

So I checked it out..

Raw: 85    Score: 166    95th percentile.  LR= -4/-2  RC= -4  LG= -5

I am ecstatic.  In my heart, I believed that I had a 163, and after hearing all the negativity about the bad curve, I was bracing for a 158.

Plus, I was very, very sick that day (if you recall my whining leading up to the test).  Had I been healthy, I probably could have pulled off a few extra points, and maybe ended up with a 169.  But none of that matters.  My numbers are good enough for any school in Canada that I want to go to, except perhaps Toronto... and who the hell wants to live in Toronto, anyway?

Good luck to everyone who insists on putting themselves through this hell once again.  I don't know how you could do it.  To those happy with their scores: Congrats!!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Bah, screw it.

Matt, sorry things didn't work out as you had expected in October.

You know what I think helped me out on this test?  I wasn't nervous at all.  Could have been partly due to all the Dayquill and Tylenol I was on.

But it was also due to the mind tricks that I play with myself.  You have to convince yourself that this is one of the easiest, least worrisome tests you have ever written.  Surely you have had more difficult tests in your undergrad career than the LSAT.  I was thinking about the time I partied for three days in March on the front lawn of Mac Hall in a tent, drunk the whole time, and then wrote a thermodynamics test and got a 28% (seriously).  That was f-ing nerve-wracking.

So, think about the worst stress you have ever had in your life.  Compared to that, the LSAT is a cakewalk!

My Canadian brother, I'm sending you all the love.  Good luck!!  See you in law school!

Heh, it's snowing today.  It's been snowing the last 2 or 3 days. 

Funny thing is, the roads are covered in ice, and we 'veterans' are still like, "wtf people, learn how to drive!  It's only a little snow and ice- under one foot still!  Jesus!!"

You 'so-cal' people wouldn't stand a chance   ::)

LSAT horror stories / Re: high LSAT mediocre GPA

Lol, it's a vain attempt to maintain that "Canadian identity", I guess :D

Subconscious too, I might add.

LSAT horror stories / Re: 12 more days!
« on: October 14, 2004, 10:48:13 PM »
Man, I don't know about you guys, but I'm really not finding the wait all that bad... October gets so busy, I have hardly noticed the last 2 weeks go by!

Also, a word of advice to all: even if we might get them early, convince yourself this isn't the case, and expect to get them on the 25th.  NO, wait, still believe you are getting your score on "the Friday before"....

I predict a catastrophic meltdown on October 22nd  ;D

It's funny, we really don't obsess about numbers in Canada like you guys do in the States.

Thank God for small favours  8)
