Question Regarding Sketch

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if they care at all about formatting under "Description". Can I just list the activity and then follow up with more bullet points summarizing it?

I don't have the answer to this question, but I just wanted to say that this kind of ephemera matters far less than your GPA and LSAT, which, per your other posts, are stellar. You seem quite anxious, so I wanted to tell you that with stats like yours, the only thing that can stop you is driving yourself to a nervous breakdown by worrying about stuff that doesn't matter - please don't do that.

OP's specific concern probably doesn't matter much, and is probably worth asking the admissions office directly, but U of T bases its decision 1/3 on GPA, 1/3 on LSAT score, and 1/3 on other factors (extracurriculars, application essay, etc.). So a strong GPA and LSAT score can do most, but not all, of the legwork in order to receive an offer.

Nope. It's 1/3 GPA, 1/3 LSAT, and 1/3 personal statement. Write an average personal statement, have excellent stats, and you're in. ECs don't matter. 

 

@OP: Just read your stats. They are good (but not excellent). Just write a decent personal statement and you should be in.

Maybe they've changed their criteria since I was admitted 3 years ago, but I was specifically told by Ben Alarie that ECs matter when I went through the application process, and my ECs were mentioned in my acceptance letter.

 

For what it's worth, I had very similar stats as OP (with good ECs) and they haven't thrown me out yet.

Don't you draw from your ECs in your PS and then they cross check them with the list you give them? I think it would be hard to write a good PS without at least something going on in your life outside of classes.

    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time 
    • Figured while you're waiting for an answer, I can jump in and answer a question as a Windsor resident, even though I won't be starting law until August.  Question 5: The Windsor bus system is I would say more reliable than other places. The busses usually run year-round, throughout all types of weather. The only times the busses usually don't run, are when the school is also closed. So in extreme cases basically!
