Hi Everyone,

I've got a 3.95/4 GPA on my last 2 years of study, and 3.88 CGPA. 

Actual LSAT is TBD: My average score is 161 (this is on my last 4 PEs, I've done 5 so far - one outlier which was a 156 which I haven't included in this average, and best score was 162). I am about a month in with studying and plan to write in Sept or Oct depending on how I'm scoring as the summer progresses. 

I am applying as a mature student. I have a master's degree in a health care field and have been practicing in that field for some time. I've had a lot of exposure to various aspects of the legal system through my professional work, including working directly with one of the diversion programs through the Court.

As for leaving my current field - I will be noting my rationale for leaving in my application as feeling as though I am often on the sidelines, as in my role I work directly with people but my role isn't to advocate on their behalf and I'd like to be playing a role of advocating for people's interests, particularly historically, persistently, or systemically marginalized people.

 I will be applying to UCalgary Law as my first pick based on clinic and mooting opportunities in my areas of interest and the option to pursue an MPP concurrently with the JD. I'll also likely apply to UVic, and I'm considering TRU.

Might be outside the editing window, but you've provided a lot of personal/professional information about yourself here that would leave you pretty identifiable - if you value your anonymity (and no one's saying you have to), you could probably stand to truncate this a lot.

Your grades are strong. Your professional background is interesting. There are a million different approaches to LSAT prep, and I'm no expert, but if you've done four tests with an average score of 161 and your best score was 162, you may not benefit from taking more practice tests right away - you may need to figure out what's tripping you up on the test and find other strategies to improve.

Thanks for the insight, as well as the note regarding reducing the information contained in the post. Unfortunately, I am unable to edit at this point. I'll watch for that in the future, and be aware this post is up on the forum. 

As for LSAT prep, I wanted to be sure my score was not based on chance. I am now working through a wrong answer journal process for each of the exams I have completed before giving it another try. Thank you again for the response.
