  1. I did this last year and was totally fine. My Friday classes were cancelled because profs know that most people were going away.
  2. I agree with the above. I ended up having to find a suit in 2 hours at the Kingston mall which just wasn't ideal. Getting one before school starts, or over Christmas break when you have time to look around and think it over is the best option.
  3. It's not as soon as you think. A lot of people only study for a month, so you're already ahead of them. Taking a few days will produce more good than bad, trust me. If you really don't feel like you can do it, watch youtube videos of logic games being solved, read general tips for test day, etc. Do things somewhat related to the LSAT without actually doing it yourself. That way you still get a break but might not feel as bad about it.
  4. Hey! I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling burnt out, but just know that it is completely normal. This is going to sound so incredibly cheesy, but I find it really helpful to watch things that remind me of my goal. For instance, I'll watch legally blonde, suits, law school videos on Youtube, anything that will remind me of the goal (it helps if they make law looks unrealistically exciting like movies and TV do!) Just try to find the excitement and passion for your future again, because once you do, it will be easier to focus. I also think you should take at least 5 or 7 days off. Just completely forget about the LSAT and try to relax.
  5. I don't think it's worth it. The employer is going to see that on your cover letter/resume. They aren't dumb. That is something they will take immediate notice of and don't need to see it repeated multiple times to factor it in. Additionally, some schools don't put that notation on transcripts until tuition is paid in September, so employers are used to not always seeing it on the transcript.
  6. Both schools that I have gone to allowed you to defer paying your tuition until your OSAP comes in. Maybe check to see if this is available at your school?
  7. If you know what size you are from RW and Co now, why don't you order from their website? They have way more suit options on there and you can return in store if it doesn't fit.
  8. Like I said, there are no percentages or grades for (almost all) of Canadian med schools. I believe you've said you're in Asia, so obviously, things are different there.
  9. Last I heard all English schools were just pass/fail, but some french schools retained letter grades. I think U of T and U of O were the last to hold onto honours but eventually dropped it. I could be mistaken though.
  10. Well you can't do that because med school is pass/fail and so they have no GPA.
  11. Why are you making a new account to ask your questions? You already have an account. Additionally, you don't need to make the same post in multiple threads.
  12. Ya ok.
  13. Someone usually makes a section fb group. You can do that if you want, then just make a post in the Queen's Law Students fb group letting people know that you created the group!
  14. Wow this post was an emotional roller coaster. From thinking someone was genuinely interested in how law fulfills people's lives to just another money-hungry person too lazy to do their own research. Oh well.
  15. If you want to be in Toronto, pretty much everything said about Bay street still stands. Regardless of the position, Toronto is more competitive than any other market in Canada, and as such, Ontario students will have the edge for all of the reasons discussed above.
