  1. The chances of you finding someone who went to UofT law with a Dutch undergraduate degree is very low. Try calling the admissions committee and asking how they consider foreign degrees.
  2. No, it's not. An agreement to accept less money than what a debtor owes is not for use in a proceeding.
  3. what if I told you you can disagree with someone without being a douchebag about it
  4. Yeah I don't think Davies decided to raise their student salary the last time they did because students had "leverage" over them.
  5. It's somewhere in that book, but yours is probably closer to the mark
  6. I think it's over 7.0 (about 15%), but check the 60 page handbook lol it's in there
  7. Is there really no employment-related work that you did at the hospital or clinics? If not, why is it that you are deciding to transition to employment or estates but not other areas of law? There has to be something you can cling to
  8. Albeit not the best areas, Dundas and Jarvis all the way up to Wellesley and Jarvis. Almost everything West of that is over $1000. It also gets most costly as you approach Bloor or Queen
  9. You may not have determined one specific practice area, but have you eliminated any? If so, just take the foundational courses in the areas you still see a possibility in. I did my SPI in the summer, so my experience wasn't really a balance between coursework, but there's a 60-80 hour limit which is roughly the same amount of time you'll spend taking a course.
  10. Alright, well if you must limit your chances, then are the BC schools the best use of those resources? They're more competitive than Queen's
  11. I disagree. If you had spent that $1000 last year to apply to a school that might have accepted you this year, then you wouldn't be paying for another application cycle, LSAT attempt, etc. Also, suppose this year you didn't apply to Queen's and UofT and ended up doing really well on the LSAT, your loss. So you're buying both the opportunity and safety net by spending more at the outset. $1000 also seems pretty high, I think I paid half that for 5 schools. Logic Games is the best section to be the worst at because it's very formulaic and predictable. There's really only 3 different game designs to know. That might be it. In fact, my first unsuccessful personal statement made this same mistake as I took a law-related major. It's fine to mention your career goals and why, but I expect you went overboard like I did. Do better on the LSAT. You're right there and the margins are that thin. 1 point can and does make the difference
