  1. Okay. Maybe they have better ECs, references and personal statements? You can't dwell on people who get in with lower scores. There's nothing you can do about them except make your application better. Getting a higher LSAT is one way you can do that.
  2. The difference between a 155 and 158 is not small. 155 is around the 64th percentile, with 158 being around the 74th percentile. That is thousands of test takers (and in that percentile, hundreds of actual applicants). In my opinion, it should make a fairly significant difference.
  3. That sounds pretty similar to the interview process last year. When I got accepted through the interview the adcomm told me they'd meet on a day in June. They sent the acceptance letter that morning.
  4. You're looking for Dal Online. https://dalonline.dal.ca/ It's different from MyDal, which is the e-mail login (and other stuff), and BrightSpace, which is the hub for courses and such.
  5. If it's like last year, we didn't get our schedules until August, I think. As for Orientation Week, it should be the day after labour day (as it was last year). Orientation is a full day thing and everything organized by the school is mandatory. There are some other things organized by the Students' Society that are typically not mandatory.
  6. Last year interviews and subsequent offers ran through May-June.
  7. I was fine with just a backpack. That's what the vast majority use. At the start of the year you can try to get a locker which is probably useful for days when you need to bring multiple large textbooks.
  8. For what it's worth, there will probably still be plenty of offers made in the coming weeks and months. Last year, they had a large batch of interviews in June. Sit tight, I'm sure you'll hear from them soon!
  9. Oh I forgot about orientation to law. OTL is a class you have twice a week until the middle of October. Basically they take a breadth of topics and give you a 1.5hr lecture on each of those topics. Topics include: what the common law is (and its history), the Quebec civil code, african nova scotians, Aboriginal law-ish, etc. You will find no 2L who is a stranger to giving their opinion on that course next year. It's a bit of a running joke, in my opinion.
  10. September-January (at least my section did). But you're given an assignment around December which is due on March 1st (usually).
  11. In 1L you'll take Contracts, Criminal, Torts (one of those will be a small group class), plus property and public law. Those are full year classes that run September-April. Then you'll have an intensive intro to legal ethics which is run over three days in October (Wed-Friday was this year -- great course if you get prof. Shapiro). Then you'll have legal research and writing which runs to around the end of January, with an assignment due at the beginning of March. Other than that you have aboriginal law in context which is a few days at the beginning of each semester.
  12. There used to be. There is no longer a limit. But some schools will average your results (very rare in Canada).
  13. You really shouldn't look at it as: What LSAT score do I need to get into X. You should be aiming for the highest LSAT score you can get. A 160 should be the baseline that every candidate strives for at a minimum. You have a pretty strong L2 GPA. With that and some decent references a 160 should be enough. But aim for higher, obviously.
  14. I agree with you and @pzabbythesecond re: my comment. It was hastily made and suggested something that I now don't believe to be the right course. I apologize for my obviously glaring error there. It certainly should not be limited for those it was intended. But, as you say, it has become something different. Perhaps I'd suggest some reforms might be necessary to better reflect that original goal, but that's likely for a different thread.
