Studying for the LSAT / Re: Best way to improve RC?
« on: August 16, 2004, 08:19:29 PM »
I wouldn't.  I was kicking ass on practice tests (avg. of 170) before I took my real June test.  I took Ritalin before hand and it screwed me up.  A lot.  Like I really was stoned.  Maybe my nerves made it worse, but it was pretty bad.

For what it's worth, I too, feel like it's "B".  His conclusion is that what is originally thought is wrong. Well, why is it wrong?  Because his principle is exactly "B".  I know, that's not such a super answer, but there are far too many confusing words in this question to try and go into detail.  At least, for me.

Law School Admissions / Re: lsat college mean

So if my school's average GPA is a 2.9, that means adcoms will look at my GPA (considerably higher) favourably?

It could be worse.  I transfered from a pretty decent school (GWU) to UofT because of its price.  Most kids there think that's the way school should be.  I'm like the guy in Pleasantville and I try to explain, "No, your school is a dark hole, even on the sunny days.  This isn't the university experience."  I get many blank stares. 

I see, I make it seem like I'm the guy yelling on the corner about the end of the world.  Obviously, I'm just trying to make a point.

Yes, UofT is the worst school the gods ever thought of.  It's way too big, with way too many teachers who don't care, and too much administrative staff that has no idea of what's going on.  It's more similar to a vacuum on the soul than a presitigious school.  I don't know.  I've never been at a loss for words, but when it comes to UofT, I just don't think it's possible to describe how depressing it is.  I hope no UofT potentials are reading this.  Or I hope they are... I don't know.

I had a girlfriend who pressured me once.  Pressure scares the *&^% out of me.  It almost always turns into marriage talk, which, girls ought to know, usually sends guys running and screaming in the opposite direction.  At least, at the tender age of 20.

I think we decided yesterday that law schools look favourably on a school like U of T because of its low average GPA and whatnot.  So that, in itself, may be reason to stay at U of T.  It's only a year.  Not much in the grand scheme of anything, except your law school application.  But it seems that overriding whatever benefit that may have is this girl.  If you have a car, Windsor is only about 3 hours from Toronto -- close enough that, if you were so head over heels, you could go almost every weekend ... or she could visit here.  If the relationship's not at that stage yet, and you THINK there may be a girl, then it definitely doesn't make sense to me to throw away U of T's prestige for Windsor and a potential girl. 
But then there's the fact that Toronto is the world's most impersonal city with the largest potholes and most suffocating traffic I've ever known.  If I had the choice, I'd use any opportunity as an out from Toronto.  Just my opinion.  No conclusion, I know.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT OCT 4th

I, too, would like some info about this test.  All I know is that it's undisclosed.  But does ANYONE know anything about it?  I've heard it is generally harder.  But the only who've told me that are the people who take it, and they would be looking for excuses, right?

Any info is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Robbie

Cheeks,
I'm a Journalism specialist (new program, I think that's what it's called) and an English major.  Are you going into fourth year as well?
That's pretty super that the adcomms realize that our GPAs are special.  My ex-girlfriend's mom was head of the biology dept. at University of Cincinnati.  A few years ago she told me that the minimum req. was 3.7 for her program.  Although, she routinely admitted people from Canadian schools with a 3.3.  But I figured she would do so because her daughter was at Mcgill and she knew that GPAs were lower.  But good to know.  Very good to know.  I've been put in a pretty good mood for the rest of the day.

Thanks.

Canadian Law Students / Important if you plan on studying in the States
« on: August 12, 2004, 01:10:32 PM »
So it seems there are a few Canadians and I have a pretty important question for you guys, I think.  I'm an American at U of T.  My GPA is decent when compared to American law students (3.5).  But for U of T, I think that definitely towards the higher end of the spectrum.  Do American adcomms know that Canadian schools are impossible?  Or will they frown upon my not-super-high GPA?  Will they give our Canadian degrees some sort of special treatment bc the average GPA at most of the schools here is a 2.00 or something like that?
