  1. Going to Windsor, Scotia offered me 125K at prime plus 0.5%, asked for prime plus 0%, ended up getting it
  2. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Just declined my offer and opened up a spot. Good luck to you fine people!

  4. www.viewit.ca is a great resource for Toronto housing
  5. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Hey sorry for the super late response! Yes that was a 3.43 cGPA and 3.65 L3. Just came to say I will be declining in favour of Windsor. Good luck to everyone!!
  6. Mature Applicants Accepted/Rejected 2018

    I was accepted into TRU about a week ago. 3.65 L2/L3, 158 LSAT. Obviously they don't have a "mature" category, but my application outlined my life story/experiences as a mature student, so who knows if that had an impact! I will be declining for Windsor. Hope the rest of you guys get some replies soon, it really seems like a lot of schools are backed up this year! (especially Ottawa wtf man!). Good luck everybody!
  7. Currently a 1L Single JD - Ask me anything!

    Hey BabyLawyer! Thanks for doing this. I have a question for you: what does your class schedule look like this year? Is there class everyday? did you have any say in the determination of your class times (like undergrad choices), or were you just assigned a class schedule that was ready-made? Thanks!
  8. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Hey, yes I did! In their e-mail from mid-January to me, they said to expect an answer around late February/early March when my LSAT score comes back, so clearly they were waiting for it before making the decision. Also, for what it's worth, I will likely be declining this offer for an Ontario school, so good luck to the rest of you!

    Accepted at 2:16PM EDT 158 LSAT 3.43/3.65 GPA, mature student
  10. Chances 141 LSAT 3.74 cGPA?

    Yasmine, your cGPA is very impressive, but unfortunately your LSAT is far too low at the moment to be accepted anywhere. On the bright side, changing your cGPA is HARD, while improving your LSAT is (still hard) but much easier, relatively speaking. That's good news for you, very good news. Check out www.reddit.com/r/LSAT - it's a good community to join and good resource for tips and strategies. The LSAT is a very learnable test. It is not an indication whatsoever of how good of a lawyer you will ultimately be. But you have to face it head on and get serious about where you need to improve. Most people have to study for at least 4-6 months in order to get a half decent score, and many many people study 8-12 months in order to reach into the 160+ range. Take this as a challenge along the way that you need to embrace and overcome in your overall journey to law school. Buckle down and get some prep books - PowerScore LSAT Bibles are a good place to start. 7sage on YouTube is also a great resource.
  11. Unfortunately this LSAT is an "undisclosed" test, which means that answer sheets will not be uploaded, now or ever. It's a real kick in the pants. No way to see which questions you got right/wrong, what the answers are, etc. It's a February LSAT thing, pretty sure all of them historically have been undisclosed.
  12. Current 1L single JD, Ask me Anything.

    WOO! perfect timing, thank you for doing this! 1) What can you tell us about the city - both the campus and the surrounding area? you hear a lot of bad things about Windsor as a city on this forum, but from what I've seen (at least in the downtown core), it's actually pretty nice! What are your impressions of the city? 2) What does a typical day/typical week of classes look like in terms of scheduling? Thanks again for doing this! EDIT: I've heard that Windsor students are in some cases able to get a $150,000 LOC from Scotiabank - any idea if this is true?
  13. Thought I was Competitive - No Acceptance?

    I would also advise calling Ottawa. Tell them simply that Ottawa is your first choice, you've received other offers, and you're wondering when you can expect a definitive answer. It's a fair question and I don't see why they wouldn't review your file and give you an answer relatively quickly after calling them.
  14. Mature Applicants Accepted/Rejected 2018

    Just got accepted at Windsor. Referred to adcomm January 26th 3.43 cGPA 3.65 L2 152, 158 5 years experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner. Absolutely speechless right now, good luck everyone.
