    2017 Associate Salary Bump (Toronto)

    I think Blakes and Stikes are following the McCarthys scale

    Firm Perks

    Can you comment specifically on any firms that fall into either category? I imagine it's not a secret among those who work on Bay Street.

    JD/MBA Dual Degree

    There's no set grade really, so I couldn't tell you. The person who would have a better idea is Graham Sue at Schulich. You could give him a call and he could give you an idea if you should write the GMAT or not.

    JD/MBA Dual Degree

    You don't need a 165 on the LSAT for them to waive the gmat. If your grades are fine, a 162 should suffice.
  6. I took civ pro this year, and although I used the most recent rule book, I used summaries from the previous two years and I had no issues. The changes are extremely minimal, so you should be fine with the 2016 edition
  7. I think a 1L student saying they excel at the practice of law would sound incredibly stupid.

    Dean's List Average

    You're right actually. First Year Distribution of Averages for 2014-2015 A+ = 0% A = 11% B+ = 35% B = 39% C+ = 13% C = 1% F = 1%

    Dean's List Average

    I believe the back of transcripts only shows the grade distributions for individual classes, not for overall GPAs. I've never seen anything that says X% of students have this overall average.

    Dean's List Average

    Where did you find this grade distribution chart?
  11. The response I usually get when inquiring about grades is all you need is a B+ average, so I take that to mean it'll leave you in a pretty good position with plenty of interviews, assuming the rest of your application is solid.

    is the Ultra Vires report ever going to come out online?

    Osgoode Financial Statement

    I think you can still fill them out. I wanted to change something on mine and they let me fill it out again in March. I guess it was after I was accepted though so I'm not sure if that changes anything. Couldn't hurt to email them. And I also did end up getting a small scholarship and my stats were lower than that.

    2016 applicants

    Never hurts to apply broadly. Just make sure all the schools you're applying to you would actually be happy with a degree from there.

    I think you should try speaking to someone else. Not sure if you have any other debt or anything that may have influenced this, but most LOCs from RBC are 80k prime +0.5. That's what mine is.
