  1. I agree in substance with the point being made, I just thought it could have been toned down a bit.
  2. I get your point but it comes off as piling on OP for not being broke.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Strange how McGill doesn't make the cut for RBC's A-list, in that case.
  7. 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.
  8. You're suppposed to send final transcripts to OLSAS.
  9. 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.
  10. https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/06/12/strike-continues-at-york-as-vote-by-contract-faculty-overturned-by-cupe.html Was this what you were referring to?
  11. No, your CGPA/ B3 is too low. Canadian schools don't favour splitters. You can transfer to a Toronto school after a year at Queen's.
  12. There's no point rewriting a 170. Your best bet is Queen's since that's a B2 school. I'm unsure about Lakehead and Windor's criteria but your first choice should be Queen's anyhow. I'm pretty confident you'll get into Queen's.
  13. Yeah, as I initially stated OP will be fine at Western or Queen's (the two they're considering applying to).
  14. The "brothers" description was perhaps a poor attempt at humour, ( an allusion to the seven sisters).
  15. The big five Ontario schools. It's a term I'm hoping will catch on. Also referred to as the five brothers. (Osgoode, UoT, Western, Queen's and Ottawa)
  16. Western's explicit agenda is to become the premier school for corporate law in Ontario. They're the only school that allow's first years to take corporate law courses. There's no reason for you to feel disadvantaged if you were to attend Western. When you're comparing Western's placement on Bay street to a school like Osgoode's, you've got to take into account the latter's larger class size. I'd actually say that as long as you work hard and play your cards right, you should be confident attending any of the big 5.
  17. I'm personally very happy that CUPE 3903 has revealed its true colours for all to see. Assaulting the very students they're supposed to teach is beyond reprehensible and severe punishments should be meted out. All options should be on the table.
  18. I think this may be a response to Trump's tax reform, which heavily shafted the upper middle class by almost entirely eliminating salt deductions.
  19. This is so uncanny. I was literally checking ATL yesterday for any recent news and then this happens today.
