Studying for the LSAT / Re: What motivates you to keep going?

I just want to carry around a briefcase when I go shopping with people. When some obnoxious person gives a friend a hard time, they can say, "perhaps you'd like to speak to my attorney" and I can then stomp up to them and slam the attache down on the counter...

Plus you can tell your friend that as his attorney you must advise him to take various mind altering substances before going on a week long bender in Las Vegas in search of the American Dream.

I'm already that obnoxious :/

1. I know some one who got into UBC in the regular catagory with identical stats, off the waitlist, however. To qualify in the discretionary catagory in UBC you have to be over 30 as far as I know. And I would not count on getting in without a B.A.

2. Mcgill does take you LSAT score into consideration. However soft factors weight heavily into the application so it is very hard to predict acceptances/denials there.

That might be helpful for you. You are basically in anywhere in the west and would probably be waitlisted at UBC.

eh.. you guys miss the ABLE part of the question?

I would sell my boat and pay 20k

I like to laugh, watch cartoons, smoke, drink, have sex, and be generally hedonistic. People also like to call me a jerk. So this was a good fit.

I like watching cartoons too.

Regionality.  Take your East Coast blinders off.  UBC does far better than any other Canadian school in the west.  Even if it doesn't rank with UT and McGill in pure "prestige" (whatever the @#!* that might be), it certainly ranks ahead of the other Canadian schools. 

Which was exactly my point.

Well yeah I agree but I think my point was that UofT and Mcgill seem to be the only law schools that are really known outside of Canada and get OCIs from NY and Boston. UBC is no doubt a good school and places best in the Vancouver area along with Uvic but I would by no means rank it in a tier above queens/western/osgoode/dal/ottawa/UofA etc..

You have a chance at several Canadian schools if you have good soft factors. Ottawa, windsor, UNB, Usask, Uman, maybe Dal esp if you are a maritimer.

I would suggest applying and seeing if you get in this cycle if you wouldn't mind going to any of the above schools. If you feel you can get a 4-5 point increase it would help tremendously but based on your performance it's up to you to decide if you think that is realistic.

With the exception of UBC, Toronto, and McGill, which carry more prestige than the other schools.

why ubc? Their lawschool is good but I don't think I would put it in the same tier as UofT/mcgill at all. I don't see what makes it better than most of the other ontario schools and from what I've seen it certainly doesn't have more prestige.
