  1. Google Docs crashes my browser almost every time I use it. I guess that's a con.
  2. If I can't make my friends laugh by having "cum" on my LinkedIn profile, then what has this all been about?
  3. It depends on what that GPA converts to on the OLSAS scale, but re-writing is probably pointless. If your GPA is above a 3.6 then you have a good shot at UofT and are a lock at every other school in the country.
  4. Man, if this isn't true. Having just completed 1L, it's mindblowing that I can't bullshit my way through schoolwork anymore. In undergrad, my essays and assignments would get good grades just because they sounded nice, even if the evidence supporting the thesis was paper thin. Profs in law school seem way more likely look at your arguments rationally rather than take the conclusions at face value. Getting my first difficult question in a moot and receiving my first memo back covered in red marks were extremely humbling, but I already feel that my analysis and writing skills have improved for it.
  5. Your experiences are fine but not good enough to meaningfully increase your chances. What are your stats? That's all that will matter.
  6. I can't even imagine how many they get. Even half the students at the lowest ranked American schools probably send in Hail Mary applications.
  7. I know that Dean's list hovers around a 7.5 and is the top 10%, so 7.0 being top 15% seems a bit high? I assumed a 7.0 was closer to top 20-25%, but can't find the numbers to back that up.
  8. First of all, congrats on that GPA. You'll get a few schools with a 155+. In fact, you'd probably even get in somewhere with a 150+ if you applied broadly. A 160+ will get you in everywhere except maybe UofT, a 165 will almost certainly get you into every school.
  9. Not that this needs to turn into the millionth thread about grades and LSAT, but I hardly think a 159 LSAT qualifies for every school except UofT.
  10. A 3.5 is between a D+ and a C at Ottawa.
  11. Yes? I'm not even sure what you mean by this post. A 158 is much more competitive than a 155. A 160 will almost certainly get you in somewhere. It is in no way futile for you to try and get a higher LSAT.
  12. Why wouldn't you apply? The absolute worst thing that could happen is they remember they disliked something about you and throw out your application. Who cares? I met with an interviewer to ask where I went wrong and they were happy to do so. I didn't get much out of it other than an extended "it was a competitive recruit", but it was still a nice chat. Different firms/individuals could have different policies on this, though.
  13. Combining these two, I made a list of issues that received marks in past exams and went through it to see if any applied. I was able to spot a few that way.
  14. I got into Osgoode in January of last year with a barely higher GPA and a 165 LSAT. You'll be fine. Calm down.
  15. Yeah, half the time I tell someone I'm interested in IP they ask whether I'm going to be protecting companies that steal from poor farmers. I'm surprised at how widespread that stigma is.
