  1. Some schools required certain years of full time employment for mature applicants.
  2. I am still thinking how to get rid of boxes old books.
  3. Apply as Mature. All your concerns are unfounded. Concentrate on LSAT.
  4. with a 3.5, you may need 165+, however, 160 to 164 is borderline. i had 3.47 and 161 and was wait listed (2012) Check out the acceptance threads for the last few cycle to have a better idea.
  5. My 3.7 from York was converted to OLSAS 3.47
  6. Is your cGPA 3.5/4.33 or converted to OLSAS basis?
  7. Your opportunity cost is very high. You give up a $75K job to get into law with no guarantee that you will earn as much as you earn now after graduation. Many of my classmates are still earning less than what you are making now. We graduated 4 years ago.
  8. It is now mid August The chance of any transfer offer is not realistic.
  9. The issue is not about wasting time to apply to larger firms. the issue is do you want to work in these larger firms? Grades are important but grades are NOT the only thing that they looked at. You may not get as many OCI but all you need is one offer. I can not predict your chance based on your grades alone. Your grades may not be as competitive as some of the applicants but you may be strong in other areas.
  10. Did you have working experience and which area of law ?
  11. you can post anything you want. Ottawa is looking at GPA
  12. My friend told me about the strange sound in Windsor. Are "sensitive" to unknown sound? If you are planning to work in GTA, then both school are about the same. Do you have an offer from both school now? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/mysterious-noise-escalates-in-windsor-ont-1.1177965 https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/unanswered-questions-fuel-obsession-over-mysterious-windsor-hum/article29737974/ https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/19/world/canada/windsor-hum.html
  13. Convert your grades and GPA to OLSAS basis. 79% is 3.3 (just a ball park estimate) 85% is 3.9 84% is 3.7. Do you have documentations for all the medical conditions you mentioned? Which schools are you planning to apply?
  14. I had 8+ in 1L ( 6 years ago) and I didn't get any scholarship.
  15. Windsor is only additional 2 more hours away compare to Western. You can also transfer from Windsor to Ottawa after 1L.
  16. I don't see the point to chew on this issue. So you missed the Sept test and is now beyond your control. By the time the results for Oct 28 test comes out, someone may have received an offer from U of T.
  17. High LSAT and low cGPA or vice versa are considered "splitter". An example will be LSAT 170 with cGPA 3.2 (just an example) Hard o predict your chance without an actual LSAT and which schools you are applying. I don't think EC can make a big difference with 160+ in your case. Go for the EC that you have a passion for but don't do it just because you want to improve your chances. I think real life working experience is compatible if not better than having EC. For myself, I had to work to meet my financial obligations during undergrad.
  18. OP can be a splitter with a sub-160 LSAT. However, I don't think OP can do much about EC with only a few months to go before next cycle's application deadline.
