Additional info & updates

01/22/09 - In the end, like so many others before me, I didn't end up applying this cycle. I got accepted into one of my top choices for grad programs, and will be attending the London School of Economics (LSE) this fall for an M.Sc. Best of luck to everyone else in their cycles!
______
24/10/08 - Well got my Oct. LSAT back and I'm not surprised with the number I got. Am I capable of doing a lot better? Yes. But I knew coming out of that test that it was not my best but I certainly wasn't going to retake in Dec. So we'll see how things work out. I've got a Northwestern interview scheduled for next week and I plan on submitting my app's anyway since I have a strong UGPA. We'll see how the cards fall.
________
07/08/08 - My academic summary is up at LSAC now and the numbers are official. I expect my LSAC gpa to go up once my final summer transcript is sent in, pending my final grade in my last course
_________
24/07/08 - Updated my GPA. I won't submit my transcript until I'm done my summer courses but I think this might (hopefully!) be how LSAC converts my GPA over. We'll see.
_________
03/07/08 - Just got my LSAT today and I must admit I was shocked to see the 159 staring back at me. The very worst I thought I could have done was a 165. I've already registered for October and plan to overcompensate for the mark which is no way a reflection of what I'm capable of doing. I know I could alter my school list to be more 'realistic' but I don't believe in working that way. I'm going to do the best that I can in October and re-assess again at that point and write the best applications I can. I'm leaving all my numbers and info up as they are because I don't really think I have anything to hide. I'm going to try, try again. What more can you say. Others who are in the same boat - please shoot me a comment or a note and let me know how you are going about things!
_________

Completed first year of university abroad, when I returned to Canada I wasn't happy in the program or at the university so I moved to London, UK and worked there for two years, the majority of the time as an admin asst. in an international loss adjusting firm. Moved back to Canada and transferred uni's and programs.

Since my first year, I increased my average by roughly 10% so this affects my gpa. My current average is 84%. My LSDAS gpa is just a rough estimation at this point. Most if not all Canadian universities consider anything above an 80% to be an A. Other than that, all I know is that I'm in the top 10% of my department of my university, no idea on rank or overall rank.

I just wanted to wish you good luck on your cycle!

June LSAT
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I\'m feeling the same as you after the June LSAT. It looks like October, but we\'ll see how the scores come out!

June LSAT :(
Tuesday, May 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey, Ijust wanted to say I\'m in a very similar situation with the LSAT, I had been testing around 167-170 and was also shocked to end up with a 159. I was aiming for a lot of the same top schools too. Good to know I\'m not the only one, and I\'m sure October will be better for both of us. Good luck!!

Good Luck!

This the same meggo in LSD? I was just browsing schools and found you somehow. Good luck this year!

Haha
Monday, July 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

Haha, I don't know about that. Good luck is never something to pass up ;-) I'm sure you won't need it either, you'll crush your LSAT re-take. No biggy. --Katfid

heh
Sunday, August 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

159 to 166
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey i just wanted to let you know that I took the lsat in february and got a 159 then studied my ass off and took it in June (while extremely sick) and ended up with a 166, here's hoping the same thing happens to you!!! I also lived in london for a while and lOVED it! Notre Dame has a year long program in london that i'm kinda interested in...Good luck!!!!!

Hi!
Monday, September 22 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey, just wishing you good luck in your cycle. I'm hoping for Boalt, and thought I'd give a fellow applicant a shout

It's Coming Quickly!
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hope the extra prep will pay off in just six short days! Good luck!

Canadian schools?
Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Are you applying to Canadian schools as well? I know you said that your SO was not big on the States, but you seem to be applying only to American schools.

hey
Sunday, August 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey Meggo, good luck this saturday! You can do it!

Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Good luck tomorrow, and join FB!

We're Done!
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I felt pretty good about this test (well, a heck of lot better than June!), so hopefully you did too!

Sunday, June 22 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks meggo, I have found your posts on LSD to be insightful- I hope your cycle goes great.

Waiting for Scores...
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

And the waiting game comes upon us again!

Hey Meggo
Saturday, July 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey Meggo -- We both took the June and October LSATs... I scored 1 below you in the June LSAT (158) and 1 below you in the October LSAT (162)... (I'm ak362 on the boards, but I've stayed away for the most part) Anyway, I just wanted to wish you the best of luck this app cycle...

Hey
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well, I'm glad that you are OK with your score. It's not a terrible score by any means, and you could definitely get into some good schools.

yay Meggo!
Monday, June 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Great LSAT! Proud of you girl. I am looking forward to seeing how your cycle turns out :) Good luck!

Wednesday, July 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your retake. Good luck on your cycle!

Hey
Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

My Canadian buddy! Best of luck!

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Meggo, you're awesome! I wish you all the best in your cycle.

You need to add one or two.

Hi
Thursday, March 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hi, I'm new to this and since you discussed GPAs, can you explain to me how to figure out my LSDAS GPA? I've already graduated and sent my complete transcripts to LSDAS but I'm not sure where to find their calculation for my GPA. Thanks! (Also, I want to apply to a lot of the same schools as you!)

LSE!!!
Wednesday, March 10 2010 at 07:00 PM

Good luck on LSE! I got accepted into their Diploma for Graduates in Finance a month ago (since I don't have much math on my transcript), and I'm going to finish it and, like you, apply for the MSc if I don't get into a top-tier law school. Which MSc did you end up doing, and do you have any tips on getting into the full-time program at LSE?
