  1. Thanks everyone! Great advice that I'll gladly take as I apply to some extra-curriculars that I'm interested in
  2. Hey everyone, I'm a 1L attending law school in Ontario. I was wondering how important it is to get involved in clinics and committees in 1L. I'm pretty nervous about my marks and my ability to keep up with school work, but I also don't want to miss out on anything that might help me in the future. Just want some tips or advice anyone could give me on time distribution during 1L. Thanks in advance!
  3. Ask a 1L student

    Wondering if anyone could answer from experience of how important it is to get involved in clinics and committees during 1L. Thanks in advance!

  8. Rejected 2017

    Rejected this morning as well With my updated transcript my stats are: CGPA: 3.22 L2/B2: 3.89 LSAT: 152 and 164
  9. What are my chance 3/3.88

    Can't say for sure, but if you focus on schools that look at L2/B2 (Western and I believe Queen's after they rank you based on CGPA), then you might have a chance with an LSAT score at around 165+.
  10. Asking professors for reference letters.

    When I asked my professors they told me what they wanted. Based on what I got from them it's pretty straight forward. They'll probably ask for: -your CV -statement of interest -maybe brief reminder of how you know them/your connection to them -transcript copy -list of schools you're applying to, what they need to do, and the deadline I think, if anything, the last one will ease the process the most. I might be missing something, but that's all I really remember giving to them/that they asked for
  11. Accepted to Western 2017

    If I'm understanding your question correctly, then the answer is no. The icons above the status indicator remain there. The icon representing your acceptance will show up in your status bar including "accepted" as well.
  12. Waitlisted at Calgary 2017

    I can't answer the first part of your question, but I can answer the second. The deadline in my acceptance letter said March 31st. I'm assuming acceptances will be coming in soon after that date.
  13. Do I Have a Chance? [mid-degree transfer]

    Not sure how much help I can be, but I dealt with a similar situation. I had a horrible first year and did worse during the first semester of my 2nd year (not sure what my GPA was exactly, but it was definitely lower than a 3.0). I ended up doing a 5th year and I had a strong upward trend, which helped me with my GPA. Fortunately, I got into a few schools this cycle so it's definitely possible! As you've indicated, the LSAT is an important factor so if you want a chance focus on both the LSAT and your GPA. If you can do that I think you definitely have a chance, especially for L2/B2 schools or schools with drops. My advice would be to keep at it and just try to accept that the best you can do now is work on that GPA and do well on the LSAT. Good luck and feel free to PM if you have any more questions.
  14. Hey guys, just wondering if anyone had any input about my chances. I had some hope before since it seemed like I had a chance with my previous CGPA and L2/B2 (3.08; 3.73 same LSAT), but the wait is kind of getting to me. Would really appreciate your input! Also, I'm not sure if this helps but: Decent softs. I'm at least sure my LORs are solid, but I have a feeling my ECs and PS are average at best. Thanks!!!
