  1. Thanks for the response! I'm from Regina so I don't think the weather would be too much of an issue. The general impression I've gotten from people who have lived in Winnipeg is that it's basically like a bigger version of Regina. I've got no idea if that's accurate but, from your description, Winnipeg does sound somewhat similar. Also, your point about there being "nice lakes, but they're far and... not that nice" sounds like a perfect description of Saskatchewan.
  2. Any current students want to weigh in on what it's like living in the 'peg? I haven't heard good things.
  3. Not OP but not necessarily. 5 courses per semester is a full course load but full time status probably includes semesters with less than 5 courses. It depends on your university's policy about what counts as full-time vs part-time studies. At my university, you only need to take a minimum of three courses per semester in order to count as a full-time student.
  4. No idea about your first question but for your second question, that section should populate later. I entered my LSAC account number and the date that I wrote the LSAT and my LSAT score only showed up after I submitted my application.
  5. In 2013, the U of T published some personal statements and optional essays that were written by applicants who were offered admission and some of those students said U of T rather than University of Toronto Faculty of Law. Should probably try not to say "U of T" but it doesn't seem to be a big deal. Link: https://www.law.utoronto.ca/documents/JD/UofT_Law_Personal_Statements_Examples.pdf
  6. I just finished my personal statement and optional essay and would love some feedback on both of them. I'd be happy to give feedback for someone else as well. Anyone want to swap personal statements/optional essays?
  7. I’d be interested! PM me and let’s swap
  8. You don't have to enter anything beyond your LSAC account number and the test date, right? On OLSAS, it says that you need to be a "current registrant" with LSAC in order for them to release the info to schools. Is that anything I should worry about?
  9. I was accepted after 2.5 years of university but I declined so that I could get my degree first. I've got a 167 LSAT and a 3.85 (88%) GPA. If you really want to go after 3 years, then you might as well apply. Might be a good idea to finish your degree first though.
  10. I just finished writing a personal statement for the U of T and would love some feedback on it. I've been tinkering away at it for so long that I can't really tell if it's any good anymore so a having fresh set of eyes look it over would be super helpful! Let me know if you're interested in looking it over and I'll PM it to you. Any help is much appreciated.
  11. Thanks. That person makes a great point but it doesn't exactly apply to my case. That said, I feel like it might just be best not to mention this stuff in my application. Even though my experiences could contextualize my desire to study law, they don't really reflect how i'm prepared for law school and I also don't really want my personal statement to become some American idol sob story.
  12. For my personal statement, I've written about some pretty personal experiences, like how I've learned to overcome some crappy circumstances in my childhood. I don't mention any of my academic or extracurricular achievements in my PS. Should I submit a different personal statement instead? The experiences I describe might work better as an optional essay. Please PM me with any advice.
  13. After a quick google, I found that the mean LSAT for Western's 2018 incoming class was a 161.5 and the mean L2 was 3.7. So, to get into Western, aim for a 161.5 or better and a 3.7 or better L2 gpa.
