  1. Suits For Men

    Rude. True, but rude.
  2. Suits For Men

    Meant to update, but got lost packing. I ended up picking up some S&M shirts, thanks for all the advice @TKNumber3 @Horace and everyone else. I love them — they fit well off the rack, and the material is very nice for the price point.
  3. High LSAT (173), abysmal gpa (2.0)

    Re: 3 — I would have guessed individual uber eats orders as to avoid awkward discussions about splitting the bill.
  4. High LSAT (173), abysmal gpa (2.0)

    I wouldn't go that far, U of T is more than twice as expensive as Lakehead! (Cue Pzabby's "You can go to McGill for $1.95 cents and the cost of a used French-English dictionary!" or whatever pittance they're charging now)
  5. What are examples of "strong" ECs?

    "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting.
  6. High LSAT (173), abysmal gpa (2.0)

    ... You really don't see the flaw in pointing out someone else's claim is unsubstantiated when your claim is unsubstantiated?

    That sounds kinda fun!

    You'd be shocked by the size of people's summaries. Mine are small (6 pages for crim, 20 for property, 40 for civ pro, 5 for contracts, 15 for torts), but I'd say at least 75% of the class has summaries exceeding 75 pages at a minimum. Including some very strong students.
  9. Accommodations

    Well obviously the students can leave whenever they want — contrary to current law school practices, I don't think best practices suggest examinations must be administered on Folsom prison rules. So you'll be free to leave after an hour and a half, like the rest of the geniuses
  10. Accommodations

    Well no, unless your assertion is that accommodated students are proportionally slower than their peers in all aspects — reading, writing, thinking, looking through a summary, etc. You're also assuming the multiplier for all accommodated students is a perfect multiplier of their speed, which strikes me as... unlikely. It seems the proper "accommodation" is to give all students an equivalent amount of time, but have that time be longer. Students could be given six hours to complete a two-hour exam, and the field would be completely level, correct?
  11. Accommodations

    That seems wholly inapplicable to law school exams, where many students fail to complete exams (and apparently finishing early is so unheard of you will not be allowed to leave when you do ).

    https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority You don't need to be an expert to have a discussion or an opinion. It's even okay to have an opinion without being all that knowledgeable about it. If you have a problem with the argument, engage with it — if it's as flawed as you appeal to authority makes it seem, it shouldn't be hard to knock it down.
  13. U of T vs Osgoode - Tax Law /CPA related question

    Interestingly, I've learned that most firms (and I think all the firms that participate in the 1L recruit) prohibit students whose parents work at the firm from applying there.
  14. What are examples of "strong" ECs?

    I don't know, a 0.5 point lower GPA is pretty significant. Depending on the starting point, that could be the difference between getting a job or not, getting into professional school or not, or getting into a graduate degree or not. 0.05, 0.10, maybe even 0.20 I'd agree with, but 0.5 is a big jump.
  15. Is law school fun?

    This is a fair criticism. I know a lot of strong students who got straight Bs, and my comment isn't fair to them.
