  1. This is a strange comment. Attending Oz and staying in rez are mutually exclusive? Really?
  2. Accepted to Queen's 2018

    Just declined my offer. Hope this helps someone else!
  3. Accepted to Western 2018

    Just declined my offer. Hope this helps someone else!
  4. Repeated classes

    If you repeat a course, OLSAS will use BOTH grades to calculate your overall GPA.
  5. reference letters

    Ask the profs who you have the strongest relationships with.
  6. Thought I was Competitive - No Acceptance?

    YP maybe? Do Canadian schools do that?
  7. Someone please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure you have to send in transcripts for ALL schools that you've attended, not just your best ones. Edit - I'm right. If you log into OLSAS and click Transcripts on the left hand side, the first blurb of text says: "You are required to submit transcripts to OLSAS for each postsecondary institution that you attended".
  8. Elite Extracurriculars

    You're right. You can say you like soccer and not have to worry about talking about anything other than the epl, la liga, or champs league. No ones give a fuck about any other league.
  9. Queens vs Windsor

    Still Queen's.
  10. Do you mean finding a job solely with that degree if you choose to forego law school? Or do you mean having that degree + your JD to find a job
  11. If you're dead set on law school, go wherever you think will give you the higher GPA. End of story.
  12. Chances? cGPA 3.67 LSAT 147

    I think arbitrary is the wrong word. The LSAT tests how well you can read dense passages and sort what's important from what's fluff. It tests deductive reasoning abilities. It tests you on your ability to discern a good argument from a flawed one. And so on. These are all skills that, at least to me, seem important during your law school education and in practice as well. In terms of fairness, I don't see how it isn't fair. It provides a way to put everyone on a level playing field. What's not fair is that the majority of schools don't give a shit what your major was. That a 4.0 in a bachelor of breathing and walking is considered more competitive than say a 3.7 in a rigorous degree like engineering. And logically, that makes sense. Figuring out some sort of weighted average to compare differing GPAs from different programs seems highly unrealistic. But it's still bullshit. Same goes for clubs. I myself was extremely fortunate in that I had the means and the time to join clubs and whatnot, so my "softs" were quite excellent. But people in other circumstances simply may not have time for clubs. Maybe they're too busy working when they're not in class, or they had to take care of a sick family member. All in all, there's clearly evidence that the LSAT does correlate, at least somewhat, to success in law school. And more importantly, it's a quantitative factor, which in and of itself means that it can more easily be used to compare 2 candidates. It gives the adcom an additional hard number upon which to compare candidates, and in my opinion, that seems more fair and accurate than assessing applicants without it.
  13. Focus or Broad Net?

    Cool. Thanks. Appreciate the insight
  14. Focus or Broad Net?

    If ones strikes out for Bay during the 2L recruit, is it safe to say their chance of ever getting in is gone?
