    Following IRAC is all you need to be successful. In theory it's great, but it's a lot more difficult to apply correctly. That's where most people fail (specifically as most of my professors have pointed out, the analysis portion). It requires a nuanced understanding of the law.

    Besides comparing the facts in the fact pattern to the facts in the cases  in your summary and arguing both sides, what else is needed for an A+ analysis?


  2. Once you get to law school you have to make peace with the fact that you're no longer the smartest guy/girl in the room. There's always going to be someone who understands a concept better than you do and that's to your benefit because you can get them to explain that to you if you study with them.

    But your comments disparage anyone who chooses to work at that firm, anyone who works off Bay, and pretty much the population of Etobicoke.

    My comments were actually prompted by my experience taking transit to Etobicoke. If you don't drive it's a very tedious place to get to  by transit and it's also not a very walkable area. Its not somewhere I'd go unless I absolutely had to simply because you need a car to be able to move around there.

    Seriously man? What a shitty thing to say to someone who is excited to start a new job. Not everybody has the same priorities or goals that you do. Living/working in a busy downtown core isn't everyone's ideal.

    I actually wasn't initially working with the assumption that they got hired by that firm because I assumed no one here would give away the name of their firm.

    I was born and raised in Etobicoke, and continue to live here. Works for me :) Plus who wouldn't want to live next to the ballinest amusement park a mall in Toronto has ever seen? LOL And gambling next door. Makes for exciting client meetings. :)

    Let's be honest you'd still lateral downtown first chance you got.

    McGill classes often have B+ as their highest grade given. It's actually very rare for an A to be given outside of a black letter 1L course. An A- average all but guarantees you the gold medal; normally the gold medalist has a GPA lower than that.

    Agreed.

    So you pay peanuts for tuition and can get a course prize with a B+. Man I wish I could speak French.

    I'm not sure what law school you are referring to, or which examples you are citing, but I'm reasonably sure even gold medalists do not routinely get A+s across the board. Is there some reason you believe this is the case?

    One average, 1% of the year at osgoode gets an A+ average . That's 3 people.

    Oh, what if I can't do the time. Was it 8am they gave you or closer to the afternoon. did they tel  you to email back if the times doesn't work or was it be there. 

    I can't give specifics but its after 8. We had agreed on the time during my in-firm. I have my suspicions why it took so long to get the confirmation but I can't divulge.

    Did they tell you a time assigned to you or did you get to pick? Do they give 8am times? Not sure If I want to wake up at 6am to check my inbox 

    They gave me a time to be there. If I were you I would  suck it up and wake up at 6. There is a lot on the line here.
