    Thoughts about working at Davies?

    My point was that they're being open about the workload and so you can't have any complaints if you end up working for them because you would know what you signed up for.

    Thoughts about working at Davies?

    This is a direct quote from the work-life balance section of their careers page: Being a lawyer is not a 9-to-5 job. We’re in the service business, and the cycle of client activity has peaks and valleys that we all learn to manage. Being responsive to client demands is our highest priority, which means long hours and personal sacrifices are sometimes inevitable. I think this quote speaks for itself. That said, the same would be true for biglaw more broadly. You're being very well remunerated and that should help compensate for your diminished social life.

    Early Admission Question

    Early decision isn't legally binding so the school can't sue you for damages. The worst they can do is tell any other US schools you applied to that you breached an agreement, which would probably lead to blanket rejections from any other US schools you've applied to. They don't have access to your Canadian schools (I'm assuming you did apply to some Canadian schools) so you're fine on that front.

    Chances Western, Queens Law? [3.61, 3.85]

    I agree with the above poster. I also think your Osgoode chances would be decent if you get a mid-160s.

    OLSAS Sketch - Athletic Achievements? Travel?

    I agree in substance with the point being made, I just thought it could have been toned down a bit.

    OLSAS Sketch - Athletic Achievements? Travel?

    I get your point but it comes off as piling on OP for not being broke.

    OLSAS Sketch - Athletic Achievements? Travel?

    Can you elaborate?

    OLSAS Sketch - Athletic Achievements? Travel?

    Athletics would be relevant but I'm not so sure about the backpacking trip. Schools aren't interested in your previous holiday destinations. That might be something to talk about in the personal statement though.

    What are my chances?

    If you can get a 160+ on your rewrite then you'd be a lock at Queen's and Western. A minimum 160 would give you a decent chance at Osgoode.

    Accepted to Osgoode Hall 2018

    I've received a job offer in Europe which I can't turn down so I'll be withdrawing. I hope this doesn't come too late to help someone on the waitlist.

    Current Canadian Law School Rankings??

    Strange how McGill doesn't make the cut for RBC's A-list, in that case.

    Sending final transcripts

    I was in a somewhat similar situation to you. I suggest emailing the profs in question to appraise them of the urgency of the situation. I would only send in a transcript with all the grades. At any rate, you have until the start of July.

    You're suppposed to send final transcripts to OLSAS.

    2018/2019 Sessional Dates Posted!!

    I wonder if the sorting into the sections is random or based on admission stats. Honestly, there so much opacity from Osgoode. My current university gives you your registration date quite far in advance. We don't even know how much tuition is.
