    Salary Chart (spliced)

    I made a google doc and made the first edit. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1q0PlAak6NiOfRZDAREY2JmURN_ZjIxXXXHJiUdS67NE/edit?usp=sharing

    Average Starting Salary

    Hey out of curiosity, I am interested in what other people are making out there. can we start a chart that shows (1) starting salary - (2) current salary - (3) region of practice - (4) area of practice - (5) year of call? anonymously, of course. (maybe instead of region of practice, we can put size of city... like rural, small town, mid size city etc. to make it more anonymous... and also instead of year of call, we can put 1st year call/ junior associate/ senior associate/partner?) i also realize this data would be highly anecdotal and self-selected, but it may be somewhat informative non-the-less I am not sure how to make a graph/chart thing that other people can add to... or if that is even possible. anyway, let me know what you guys think. example: starting salary current salary region of practice Area of practice year of call
  4. What kind of LS grades are national law firms in regional areas looking for when considering lateral hires? (London/Hamilton/KW) A job I am considering applying to says "excellent academic credentials" and I am unsure whether to waste my time applying. I had pretty much exactly between a B and B+ overall gpa in LS
  5. The chances aren't zero. But without more information about you and your app it's hard to gauge how close the probability is to zero. I got in to two Ontario schools with slightly better stats than yours. Similar cGPA but my L2 was in the range of 3.8ish... This is part of the 'more information' I was referring to. My LSAT was better than yours, but only by a little. I spent way too much time on my personal statement and I suggest you do the same. Again, the chances are not zero but you have an uphill battle.
  6. Oh snap. We have pretty similar stats.(except I have B2:3.77) I have a feeling our Ontario cycle may be similar in the end. Only news so far is out at Alberta Good luck to us #teamborderline
  7. We're in the same boat my frend But my B2 includes this current semester. I dont know how that changes the story.

    Rejected 2013

    Out like a light Gpa: I have B2 3.8~ (conservatively) as of the end of this sem.. Alberta stops calculating at December so it's about 3.28 because they had to use my catastrophic 2nd year. LSAT: 158 December. 160 feb (although they don't use that)
  10. I actually spent the better half of yesterday morning looking through the archives of LS.ca for information on the jdmba. And how long did u study for the GMAT? More specifically, how long did u have to study until you could get an acceptable score.. And is that threshold any lower if u are already in Oz?

    Queen's vs. Osgoode

    With respect to whereeverjustice's and aless' comments, why does oz being a commuter school affect its status as a 'collegiate' or 'collegial' school. I guess I'm really wondering: why the negative connotation around the suggestion that a school isa commuter one? And if the negative connotation is not just in my head, then which other schools besides oz (or Calgary from what I hear) can be classified as commuter schools?
  13. Ur GPA + 167 and ur laughing all the way to UofT
  14. You can pay extra to get maid service?? Or is that not included In the "but you can pay extra to get all of that"
