  1. The call took place via videoconference? Did any candidates virtually attend this? None of the messages I received through the portal provided details about this (webcast link, etc.) I also didn't receive any messages from the LSO after I submitted my commissioned documents (other than the generic auto-reply)...
  2. Anyone heard from Perry + Currier or Hoffer Adler?
  3. Would anyone be willing to share the names of the 3-4 known firms that do Wednesday interviews and not offer a position? Either on this thread or DM?

    1L Grades

    Thanks for responding! I was actually more interested in the overall GPA distribution. They publish the distribution for the individual courses but I don't know where to find the median for the group (1Ls) as a whole. I assume most students don't just get straight B's and many score above the curve in some or below in others. The individual courses curve to a B, except for ILS and the small section courses that curve to a B+. Does that mean that the median is just above 3.0? I'm just trying to get a sense of how my cGPA fares overall.
  5. Does anybody know what the median GPA is for 1Ls? Just for reference - what is the approx. min GPA that put people in the top 20% (aka tutors)? Is this info published anywhere?
  6. Ditto Yup This was me ~1 year ago I agree with others who have addressed this point before me. There are many other professions that would meet the criteria you listed above. When I graduated from my undergrad, law school wasn't even on my radar. I have been working for a couple of years and I currently have a job that lets me do all the things you mentioned in your post. I decided to attend law school after learning more about the types of work you could do with a JD in my industry. It is possible that I would come out of law school with the same salary + crippling student debt, but I know with 99% confidence that a JD is the next step that I should take in order to pursue my passion. I would recommend researching other careers to see if anything appeals to you. As you know, you are not bound science careers just because you have an HBSc. A few of my friends have gone into PM, PR, HR, social work, etc. with a science degree as well. However, if you are determined to get into law school next year, I recommend beefing up your extracurriculars and studying your ___ off for the LSAT. I got into Ottawa, Queen's, and Western, and was waitlisted at Oz (before the July 2 deadline) with a 3.4 CGPA and a 161 LSAT score. Don't count out the Ontario schools if you really want to go. Anything is possible.
  7. Waitlisted this morning I've provisionally accepted elsewhere so game over, I guess?
  8. I have provisionally accepted Queen's, however, I just got an offer from Western and I need to decide before the July 2 deadline. With so little time left, I thought I would seek the wisdom of LS.caers who have more personal experience (and/or forum exposure). I have a background in life sciences and I am interested in IP and health law. Which school fares better in these streams? I am not 100% committed to either one but it would be nice to know. As far as I can tell, Western and Queen's are pretty equal in other respects. Is it too late to get decent accommodations at Western at this time? I was looking for a place in Kingston a couple of months ago and I was already having trouble finding a place. Switching to Western also means that I would lose the deposit that I put down at Queen's and at the apartment that I'm renting. However, I realize that the amount might be negligible in the long run so if there are any great reasons for me to do this then I'm all ears! Thanks!
