  1. Luckily I've found some sweet sweet PDFs but thank you everyone!
  2. Looking at some of the syllabi my profs have posted, there are readings for the first actual day of classes. If we won't have books by then are we screwed?
  3. Also, check out that upper year's post on the students' page. Seems like you can save a ton if you buy them all used. He said he got them all for $130 after the bookstore quoted him $900
  4. It's a little sketch that you have to fill in that gets sent to all schools. It gives you something like 100 characters (not sure what the actual number is, but basically a sentence or two) to describe everything you've done for work, extracurriculars, sports, and volunteer work since high school. It's like a little resumé.
  5. From what I've heard from upper years, a lot of the first year books are available as PDFs. Might want to take this into account.
  6. I'd say your chances are quite good but not certain. Due to your lower B3 I would say you could get in later in the cycle in February or March. I do know people entering 1L with me right now with a similar B3 GPA and a worse LSAT than you that got in right around that time. The upward trend in your grades is certainly helpful and your ECs are good.
  7. To add to what other posters have said, my diagnostic was also a 151 and I was similarly discouraged. In the end, with a lot of work, I scored a 169. The LSAT is a learnable test, despite what other people may tell you. It's a difficult process but the work you put in will be so worth it. What helped me out most was 7sage Logic Games videos and doing blind review every single time. You can do this!
  8. When I click log in it just takes me to a news page. Trying to see if my recent transcript request was received but I can't!
  9. Is it only on August the 19th once registration starts, or before that? Thank you!
  10. FYI for anyone still following this, I talked to my rep today and he said there are talks of increasing it to 180k, but for now the official number is 150k. As well, if you're still in school (not articling) when they finalize the increase to 180k, you can ask to have yours extended to this amount.
  11. Allan Hutchison is super awesome -he came to one of my 4th year seminars a few times to talk about Legal Theory and it was very clear he was the smartest person in the room. Coolest dude. Will definitely be checking out this book by him!
  12. I just finished a Philosophy and Polisci degree at UofT and despite doing well in my philosophy courses my diagnostic LSAT was a 151. It took a lot of hard work to get my score up to where I was happy with it. I wouldn't infer from studying philosophy alone that you'll get a decent score. Edit: If you're from a low-income background, look into the UofT law School Access Program!
  13. I also went to UofT and really enjoyed my time here (majored in Ethics, Society & Law). That being said, I have friends from Ryerson and York that also participated in this year's admissions cycle that also loved their time in university. If I were you, I'd pick the program that you want to do most. 4 years is a long time to spend in a program that you don't like, and frankly your interest in law could change.
  14. On UofT's ACORN website I'm seeing $500 credited to my account -am I supposed to do anything with this or is this everything, granted that I've also handed in my deposit form to the Faculty of Law?
