  1. readings in 1L

    This question is for upper year students. Should 1L students read everything they're assigned? How do I study smart rather than study hard? Any tips?
  2. Waitlist 2017

    will students be assigned readings on thursday (sept 7th) and friday?

    congratulations! what do you have a master's in?
  4. Financing your law degree

    I agree. I also had a terrible experience with TD. They offered my 100k for just prime but they also tried a tied selling technique with life insurance. It's illegal and a complete joke. TD also makes you pay at least interest while you are a student, so you've dodged a bullet. Be happy they sucked cause at the end of the day you're better off with Scotia who offers at just prime plus no repayments until 2 years after graduation. TD can't match what scotia is offering. You're richer than you think
  5. Financing your law degree

    can you elaborate? even tho TD is just prime?

    I'm all for applicants who are not "cookie cutter applicants." Diversity and experience is important, and I acknowledge that sometimes that's more valuable than a degree. But you can also have diversity, experience on top of being a "cookie cutter applicant" if you mean by having a bachelor's degree and better lsat. I'm not sure what you mean by cookie cutter... it would be nice if you can clarify that for me. It's not fair to discount the hard work and time it takes to achieve a bachelor's degree. I don't think a lawyer's opinion on your work will overcome the low lsat. Being too busy is not a real excuse. We're all busy. If anything, since you did not get a BA, you should have made 100% sure to get that great or at least decent LSAT score. Postponing your application until that lsat score is achieved would have been the best bet.

    no need to be mean about it.

    I agree with the above. One strong letter of recommendation can do what 5 co-authored letter can do, if not better because it would be more coherent. Seems odd that there are 5 authors. But that's not the issue with your application. It's the low lsat in conjunction with no undergraduate degree. from my understanding, to be honest, that seems like a terrible combination. they will overlook one or the other but in this case you do not have either lifting you up. Is there a reason why your lsat is low and why you didn't do an undergraduate degree? You would have to explain why you chose this path... and why you didn't do well on the lsat. it seems like a lot to overcome. at the very least, i would rewrite the lsat. i hope you take this as constructive/honest criticism.

    on the list as well. 157 CGPA 3.3 last 2 around 3.7 (maybe a bit less) MA 3.8-3.9 I'm surprised to be on the wait list. I think it's because they are LSAT focused.
