Does one cancelled LSAT record give bad impression on the Law schools?  Would it affect my chances on getting admitted??

Can I send it in tommorow via fax or on sunday as well??  Or do i need to send it in only during the weekdays...

Studying for the LSAT / When is the deadline to cancel the score via fax?
« on: December 09, 2005, 12:17:13 PM »
I'm considering cancelling my score because I'm just not sure how well/bad I did...
I don't feel necessarily to take the chance becasue I was actually satisfied with my first score..and I don't want to screw it up.
Does anyone know when the deadline to fax in the cancel sheet?

As well, do I only need to send in that form or do i need to attach a written letter or of any other kind?
Thanks.

The stress is ...indescribable.  I think it's more of nervousness and fear than stress.  However, most of ppl only go down 1-2 scale points so if you're doing good right now, you shouldn't worry.  Work on your sleeping habits and you should be golden.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Low October takers retaking next cycle??
« on: November 02, 2005, 12:41:43 AM »
I was scoring high 150's-low 160's. Ended up bombing the reading comp, kicked ass in the LR, and getting stuck on games (my best section). I know it had to do with my emotional state at the time (some fam. issues), I should have cancelled, 152. I am confident I can score over a 160 next time around, If i get a 162+ the 10 point increase will look favorable for me. We'll see what happens.

Anyone else giving themselves more time?

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't do as good as Your capable of and I'm sure you'll nail it the second time around.
I ended up with higher end of 159, and I decided to retake it in december.  I'm going to start studying tommorow, and give myself a good full month to redo all the TM hw and do some of the practice tests again.  Hopefully I won't be nervous this time around. (Missed 18 on the first two marked sections due to a lot of nervousness, and only 6 on the last two sections)

Good luck.

hi Rwalker130, My last two years at Western was 86.5% and 85% respectively, which comes to around 3.77 on OLSAS GPA chart.

It's also good to see a fellow Western Alumni..I always felt that our grads just don't get enough credit! ;)
Which program did you graduate from?  I graduated with ACS program.

I think you have a shot at a several Ontario schools with a 159 and a B average.  If you apply under mature category, it will definitely boost your chances, given that you have a decent work experience. 

Where do you plan to attend?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I CANNOT improve my LR
« on: October 28, 2005, 03:28:49 PM »
I have taken about 11 practice tests and worked my way from a 154 to a 166.  Not bad, but the score jump was mainly because of an increase in my Games score.  My LR has stayed the same.  I have read through the LRBible but still seem to struggle on them.  The worst part is, I will go through the test thinking I got almost every one right.  I am so confident when I do the test.  I also go over the answers when I am done and am able to see why I got the questions wrong.  Perhaps I'm just dumb.

What am I doing wrong?

Any tips?

The thing with LR is that one day you'll wake up and just improve.  Your LR mark will stay constant for the longest time, and then it'll just hit you.  Do as many questoins are possible to familiarize yourself with it.  Good luck.
