Also landed a pretty impressive summer job.

For the record, my PS is pretty wicked, and very unique, at least I think so.

Additional info & updates

Degree GPA of 3.66 represents my OLSAS GPA, for all the Canadian applicants out there :)

Got my June LSAT score and will be retaking in October. After all my practice testing in the 167-170 range I was pretty shocked to see a 159 (I bombed Reading Comp).

07/24/2008: Got my insane Canadian transcript converted by LSAC, and I'm SO happy it turned out as I had hoped. For what it's worth, in years 1-3 I've got 3.67, 3.73 and 3.93 respectively.

10/04/2008: LSATs, Round two, and all I can say is ...F**k Reading Comp!

10/06/2008: So, Cooley sent me an brocure today in the mail, and I'm thinking it's a bad omen about my impending LSAT score. Ha. Giving serious thought to cancelling my score, uggh.

10/08/2008: I did it. I canceled. I knew it was a bad score and with one behind me already I just couldn't risk it. I'm keeping NYU on there b/c I'm applying to the joint JD/LLB program with Osgoode, so I have to send an app there anyway, even though I probably don't have a chance anymore but whatev...

10/29/2008: Sent in my Ontario apps today. My top pick in Canada is Osgoode and my numbers are sorta close to their medians, so we'll see. Started LSAT preppin' again this week also *sigh* I'm still not giving up!!

11/14/2008: Did two PT's this week, 164 and 166. I'm mildly optimistic.

12/06/2008: LSATs, round three. Feeling a lot better this time about everything except games. We shall see, I guess.

12/29/2008: Got a 163 on my retake! I know its not amazing but I'm happy with it. Went from -10 on RC to -2, but games pretty much owned me this time. Oh well :)

01/23/2009: In at Osgoode, my top pick of the Canadian schools, after several stressful days refreshing that cryptic OASIS page!

02/05/2009: Rejected at U of T. Very much expected.

02/26/2009: WL'd at GW, letter dated 2/20. Expected but sucks, I really wanted to go there. May LOCI this one, not sure.

03/02/2009: NYU ding. No big shock there. Kinda only applied because I wanted to do the joint program with Osgoode. Oh well.

03/05/2009: Fordham rejection via status checker.

03/06/2009: Strange call from Fordham, apparantly they didn't see my new 163 LSAT and had rejected me based on a previous score (159), and are now "Re-evaluating" haha wow.

03/19/2009: BC rejection today, letter datd 3/13.

03/23/2009: Vandy waitlist letter came on 03/20. WL'd at Fordham this time around, via status checker this afternoon.

...Sent out my LOCI to GWU today as well *fingers crossed*

03/27/2009: After THREE days on the waitlist, Fordham accepted me! :S Cool!!!

04/02/2009: WL'd at BU and W&M this week, BU letter was dated 03/20 and just took a while to get here.

04/06/2009: "Hold" email from WUSTL. Clearly no one wants to give me an outright decision lol...I'm going to think about this one for a few days, I'm not sure if I want to withdraw just yet.

04/09/2009: Withdrew from two waitlists and from Fordham today (that one hurt, but I know it's the right thing to do in my circumstances).

Looks like we\'re in the same boat. I was scoring well, but somehow the June LSAT just kicked my butt. Good luck in October!

Monday, June 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

We have almost exact numbers, right down to our university averages and LSAT. Freaky! Ah well, our LSAT is just another hurdle to jump over! I\'m sure we can ace it!

It's Coming!

Hope your prep is staying strong these last few days!

Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully everything went splendidly for all of us retakers!

Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I hope that everything goes well for you in the end! When will you take the LSAT again?

Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well, good luck in December then! I hope that you can feel more prepared by then and really rock the test!

Sunday, June 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

We have pretty close numbers. Good luck with your cycle!

Sunday, June 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

Fordham is far and away my top choice. After that, it would be Northeastern and Osgoode Hall (due to my love of Toronto). How bout you?

Hey Girl, I am here..how do I obtain contacts?

Sunday, June 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Osgoode!!!!!

Sunday, June 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

So how's the rest of your cycle going? I'm sending in my deposit to Osgoode on Friday and will be attending (barring me getting off the waitlist at Fordham or Hastings)

Saturday, October 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats on fordham :) after getting waitlisted, did you send in additional stuff? how did you hear that you got accepted? ^

Thursday, November 27 2008 at 07:00 PM

IHeart- you are on some kick ass waitlists! Are you still thinking about Osgoode Hall? Very best of luck!

Sunday, June 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

Ready for school on Monday?!

Hey! Nice to see another Canadian on LSN. Congrats on Oz.
