  1. That’s the one! Agreed that that is a very particular circumstance. By the sounds of things I would expect that their GPAs would have to have been nearly perfect and their LSATs above 170 with remarkable ECs. I just thought it was interesting that none of them lost them, and that you had the same scholarship and also had outstanding success at law school. Thats also really interesting and not something I would have guessed. Appreciate you sharing. Would not have expected this either but makes sense. Interesting and still somewhat surprising given the established relationship between LSAT performance and law school only being .4. Guess maybe what they didn’t consider there was how hard the students worked in law school. Thanks for your input!
  2. Haha, thanks for the helpful response! This is what I was hoping for lol. That's kind of what I figured, I suppose; some of the posts on here had just made me curious. Thanks again.
  3. I think you're being a bit dramatic. It's a pointless argument that neither of us will get anything out of and I would guess both of us have better things to be doing. Also, if you go through these boards, you might notice how some of the most successful law students and lawyers sometimes come off with a no-bullshit attitude. Bob is a pretty good example. I would think his posts can certainly seem more aggressive than mine to some people at times, yet he did phenomenally well in law school and as far as I can tell in practice thereafter. I don't get the point of these kinds of comments. I was just trying to end a pointless argument. Totally different than backing out of a meaningful debate. And now the post has been derailed, lol.
  4. You just commented "calm down" and nothing else on a post, then called one of my posts condescending. Mine was lighthearted, you were solely trying to stir the pot (sure, you'll deny this, but when has telling someone to "calm down", especially on a public interface, ever made them any calmer? You weren't born yesterday). Anyway, I am not going to engage in a back and forth with such a creature.
  5. If you are referring to the initial part of what I said, I am quoting the big lebowski. I respect chaboy's opinion and was trying to make light of our initial disagreement. The second part is a potentially helpful tidbit. I don't see how I'm demonstrating any level of anger or frustration in my post, to be honest with you, but would welcome you to point it out to me.
  6. I understand; but that's just, like, your opinion, man. Something that may actually be helpful for you: when you unnecessarily put words in quotation marks ("difficulty"), it can look very "silly". Not that I have any experience worth talking about relatively speaking, but I have seen a judge openly mock a lawyer in court for doing so. Anecdotal, but still. Admittedly, though, she was fairly aggressive with her quoting.
  7. Thank you, helpful response. Makes sense! Interesting to hear. Wasn't really expecting a strong correlation. Have just seen posts by erinl2 etc. saying that all of the people she knows who got a certain scholarship met the requirements for said scholarship (top 20% of their class) which made me wonder if this could be extrapolated to any degree. Thanks for your insights bob. As a 0L with nothing insightful to say, why did you even comment? Is this supposed to be helpful in any way, or are you just having a bad day? Lol
  8. I have read a number of threads on the topic of how to succeed in 1L and noticed there is no real consensus, and don't expect there to be one now. However, I was wondering if there was any way of reasonably accurately ascertaining our chances of having success in 1L? To elaborate, it seems that a lot of the people at the law school I will be attending have averages in between an A- and an A. In my final years of university, I received relatively significantly better marks than individuals with such cGPAs in my program. This was while I was taking more/generally harder courses and without working any harder than them (probably less hard, just because my commitments outside of university took 5+ hours of my day throughout the week and 3ish hours a day on weekends). I don't mean to come off as arrogant or presumptuous here, but I have seen posts that suggest that if you received some certain scholarship from law schools and were thus that competitive of a law school applicant, you generally will be at the top of your class in law school (can link posts if necessary). Would be helpful and interesting to know how much harder I will have to work (if that's the case), if I should be changing my habits, etc., which an answer to this could potentially help many people determine.

    Appreciate all the input here!! Really helpful! epeeist and bb you both have been very helpful and genuine in your responses. Doesn’t seem like there was any maliciousness intended by either of you, probably no need to go back and forth (unless you’re enjoying this, in which case, I’ll shut up ) hopefulcanadianlawyer, I see what you mean, but I think mine is probably worse than you’re imagining. Still find what you said helpful though!
  10. Sweaty Hands

    That’s actually a pretty huge relief epeeist! Makes me feel like it is a much more manageable situation than I feared it could be. Thanks so much again for contributing. StacyMom, I have done so, and the only real permanent solution is surgery (that has potentially brutal side effects that I won’t get into).
  11. Sweaty Hands

    Appreciate the above responses! I would like to try to avoid surgery if possible though. epeeist, thanks so much for contributing here. Do you think that constantly providing a white lie for not shaking hands is better than giving a relatively palmy handshake? I think I could pass it off as nerves if that would be understandable
  12. Sweaty Hands

    Gross, I know. But: I have a condition called hyperhidrosis. Bottom line this means that my hands are essentially always sweaty (drying hands off with a paper towel right before shaking hands etc. does not really work for me, would still be noticeable palmy). I was wondering if this will hamper my professional life and/or interview success, and what you'd suggest I do to deal with it. There are more serious ways of getting rid of this issue, but I would certainly prefer to not go down that road.
  13. Chances? Cgpa 3.25, 167 and 164 lsat

    Really depends on your B/L2. Probably in if it’s above a 3.6 on olsas
  14. Housing

    Appreciate the responses - really helpful.
  15. Housing

    Hey all, Have read the existing threads on this topic, but was wondering what the consensus was of when we should be looking to rent a place out? Ideally I would have my lease beginning in May. Currently mostly interested in the Homestead properties near the Waterfront or the Metro grocery store. Would greatly appreciate any info. on this!
