  1. Stop tying debt anxiety to job anxiety. You borrowed at prime and it's dischargeable in bankruptcy. It's not like you're in a death camp or something. Don't be anxious about not getting a 1L job. They're few and far between.
  2. You may also have adult ADHD (as a diagnostic matter, every adult likely has adult ADHD). As someone with adult ADHD, it's your human right to have double time on the LSAT.
  3. I assure you it's real. This is where your tax dollars go, to help public servants who max out at a 3.0 GPA rack up letters behind their name.
  4. Well if you have that sweet (unbelievable, unconscionable) five year federal leave, then frame this in terms of opportunity cost: is 3 YEARS of law school the most time-efficient credential to move you forward in your career?
  5. It goes beyond admissions. At your very best, your grades are probably going to be worse than every other person in your cohort. This is not like med school, where the person at the bottom of the class is still called Dr. and still gets to bill the government $300k for prescribing antibiotics to kids with the cold.
  6. Your "renaissance" grades are still extremely low.
  7. But she has a job now, right? 1 in the hand, 2 in the brush, etc.
  8. I thought your wife had a great job that was going to lead to the federal public service. How could you ever "exhaust" your options in Ottawa?
  9. If you think about the Ryerson law school in terms of serving the interests of Ryerson faculty and LPP providers, then everything clicks into place.
  10. So could I run an unaccredited law school out of my office while I'm eating lunch and then all my students would have to do is just pass their NCAs?
  11. I foresee many such post-facto justifications
  12. Isn't it FLSC who determines this? The same FLSC that sets an unbelievably low bar with the NCA exams?
  13. The exterior and common areas look like a parking garage. The classrooms are like those rooms where mall security holds shoplifters before the police come.
  14. This is one limited aspect of medical education. Students then have to apply all this doctrine during clerkship --> residency --> fellowship while under constant supervision and evaluation for 2-8 years. Query how law school costs as much as med school but has no client-facing application phase.
  15. The 'standard' is Laskin/Stratas point-first writing, e.g. http://www.ontariocourts.ca/coa/en/ps/speeches/forget.htm Whether that is 'good writing' or not is a matter of personal taste I guess.
  16. Lerners isn't a "top firm"? What about McCarthy Tetrault, where the juniors almost exclusively get into court defending med mal for CMPA. Is that not a "top firm"?
  17. I didn't know that U of T took letters of recommendation.
  18. I think BC is worse for jobs, but obviously your quality of life will be infinitely higher anywhere in BC vs. commuting from Newmarket and waiting for death.
  19. The starting point of your analysis ought to be that all obligations are owed to your clients, not the partner. Right now it seems like you have that completely reversed.
  20. I agree with providence that a 1L job can be (should be?) more about your own growth than about signaling for a 2L job or whatever.
  21. It's not "pondered." From the discovery in the HUG lawsuit (or simply looking at the class composition of schools that don't practice AA like Caltech) it is grossly weighted against Asians.
  22. Doctors who do things that are extremely important (as opposed to checking commas on Annex 17 to the Master Purchase Agreement) use the term "baby doctor". Grab the smelling salts.
