  1. Commerce

    Scotia LOC

    I have a student LOC with them and have never paid for my cheques.
  2. at Western I recall our CPDO officer saying 75% participate, only like 25% of the total class size got a job through OCI's though
  3. I'd say you have a good shot at a later acceptance (april possibly) I was accepted with a similar situation, low cGPA, much much higher L2, and a 162 LSAT (currently a 2L at western)
  4. Commerce

    Chances, 2.76cGPA, 3.6L2, 165 LSAT

    Definitely worth applying, I was in a similar situation as you and got accepted with 3.07/3.68/162 in april currently in 2L at western
  5. I wasn't accepted until mid April with lower stats than you, I wouldn't panic yet

    Not interested in Business Law

    His wife was diagnosed with brain cancer so he is choosing not to return to my knowledge

    Not interested in Business Law

    good news for you then, Western is interviewing 2 new deans of law, neither of whom have a business background (current dean was all business background) so you can expect some sort of shift to a less of a focus on business law also there are several people not interested in business law currently here, it isn't something to worry about

    Bombed 2L first semester

    Could you lose your summer job? depends was your offer conditional on any grades requirements for 2L? (if no, then no you cannot lose your job - its governed by contract law) (if yes, then it is possible you could lose you job say your contract said you must maintain at least X average) it could possibly affect rehires for articling, but honestly I don't think grades matter once you obtained your 2L summer position, but that varies from firm to firm (depends on your firm though I suppose) They will likely ask for your transcripts for all of 2L, not just for first semester, so you may be asked to submit it while you are working over the summer

    Chances, cgpa 3.4 L2 3.71 lsat 160

    I would say you have a strong chance of acceptance. I would almost guarantee your acceptance if you had a 162+ LSAT I was accepted on 3.07/3.68/162 or something like that i forget exactly, so your gpa/cga are better, just a bit lower lsat

    Is moot participation something people put on their CVs?

    for summer and articling jobs absolutely, firms love to see engagement in moots I wouldn't include them unless your desperate to fill space for applying for associate jobs
  11. relatively similar stats to what I was accepted with, I would say you have a good shot. I was roughly 3.07/3.68L2/162 if i remember correctly

    1L Recruitment GPA

    nothing less than a B+ average for Western, I'd say an A- average to be competitive I only know of three people who got 1L summer law firm jobs, but firms seem to be leaning towards greater 1L hiring.
  13. To my knowledge, it is your last 2 academic years for Western some schools have a requirement that those last 2 academic years must have a certain number of credits associated with them though

    Chances? cGPA 3.39, L2 3.83, LSAT 160

    I'd say you certainly have a good shot of acceptance @prelawunb14 - not sure where you heard that, but that's inaccurate lol. I know a few students who had sub 160 LSAT's but really high GPA's and are currently at Western
  15. Commerce

    chances? cgpa 2.8 , L2 3.8, LSAT 165

    I don't remember the exact date, but it was sometime early-mid April. 3.3cGPA is quite a bit better than my 3.07cGPA, and your L2 is better as well, so I can see you getting in earlier.
