  1. I'm working on the assumption that NYC Biglaw firms are matching Cravath in order to ensure they attract the best and brightest. Since NYC biglaw recruits from from Toronto it's reasonable to suppose that some of the best students in Ontario might be enticed by the prospect of a bigger paycheck south of the border.
  2. I've been following ATL and it seems as if all the other NYC biglaw firms are falling in line. I do hope you're right about Bay St firms raising their own salaries to stop the best talent slipping south of the border.
  3. At what point during law school in Canada would one apply to a UK firm? Do they offer summer opportunities?
  4. Is it possible to get a job in London (UK) from a top canadian school? How often does this happen and what path do people go through to reach this outcome? Thank you.
  5. Hello, I have a quick question about OLSAS GPA calculation. Most courses at my uni are 3 credits, however, there are a number of 2 semester 6 credit courses I've taken as well as courses that are 6 credits in one semester. Are 6 credit courses counted as 2 courses to account for the double credits gained? Thanks.
  6. I don't know why I only hunch over when reading lsat passages but not regular books. I might be down to just how important this exam is but I don't really know.
  7. There are other ways to prove one's time management abilities. Taking 6 or 7 courses in a semester and getting an As in all requires a great deal of time management as does juggling school with part time work and/or extracurriculars.
  8. I don't mean to disagree with you but could you kindly explain why would law schools would take note of athletic accomplishments? I would imagine that adcoms were looking for dynamic and intelligent minds to nurture.
  9. I don't mean to hijack the thread but I'm interested in having my softs evaluated. I secured a top 2 finish in undergraduate moot court, I'm a senior editor on an undergrad journal, a tutor at my school, have research position with a prof and an exec position with a club on campus.
  10. I'm done with the RC Bible and find myself a little over halfway through the LR bible. Predictably, I've saved the hardest for last.
  11. Yeah I think it will be a good idea to speak to the profs beforehand.
  12. Do you plan to get a summer associate position in your 2L summer? Assuming you do, you'll only have your 1L summer to finish your undergraduate degree.
  13. Yes I've already started thinking about my personal statement. And yeah it's OLSAS schools I'm applying to. Sorry for not being explicit in the OP. I have one more question though. Since I'll be waiting to receive my score to decide whether or not to apply, that means that I'll only be given my referees about 2 weeks notice to write my references. Is that enough time? Thanks.
  14. I plan to wait for my September LSAT score before deciding whether to apply. The LSAT is on September 24th and LSAC takes about 3 weeks to process a score so I would get my score by the week following October 15 which is about 2 weeks from the application deadline give or take a few days.
  15. Does anyone else get neck pain when doing practice tests? I think it's the way I read.
  16. I know you have to send in final transcripts but is there a stipulation that you must have fulfilled the requirements for graduation in your undergraduate degree? I'm thinking of applying in the coming cycle and this is a question that came to mind. Thanks for your answers.
  17. It might be worth delaying graduation in order to bring your gpa up to where it needs to be.
  18. Anyone else studying for the LSAT whilst juggling summer courses?
  19. I'm curious about whether Queen's counts summer courses or just uses an academic year i.e. September to April. Thank you.
  20. I personally don't find the RC Bible's explanation's of answers in the science passages very thorough. I'm curious about how others managed to master the science passages. They're the last bit of reading comprehension that I don't have a firm handle on.
