    Ask a 1L!

    Not as far as I know. Just the course prize winners.

    Ask a 1L!

    This year, I believe there’s only been one prof giving out failsafe midterms, and that’s for Public. These aren’t true “failsafes” for the most part, but they’ll move around the weight. So it’ll be worth e.g. 10-25%, whichever benefits you.

    High School Mock Trial Opinions

    Sounds like you need to do your own CrimPro homework.

    uOttawa v. Queens

    Last I checked, Queen’s hasn’t released their first round of offers yet. This question seems a little premature.

    Any Advantages to a Firm Acceptance?

    There's certainty, it lets you plan ahead for your life going forward, that's about it. But if you were waiting for options, I wouldn't have even provisionally accepted the offer until the April deadline for early admissions. Scholarship money is on a rolling basis as people are offered the money and decline, I've gotten a small one after I've firmly accepted, so that's not a factor. This also isn't like the US where you can pit schools against each other for funding.

    I'm gonna seem like the gunner here, but I hate not knowing and need to be able to damage control. Any idea of what the rough timeframe is for December exam marks to be released?

    Things I Wish I Knew (Before Starting Law School)

    The best way to get ahead of cold calling is to answer something stupid basic before they start picking people... And some profs REALLY like to stir the pot between students on controversial topics. Just don't engage.

    OLSAS LSAT question

    Someone may have to check my recollection, but I believe they don’t pull from LSAC until after you pay for and submit the application. They definitely didn’t pull it instantly.
  9. GPA of any description will always be per course. The objective of the GPA scale is to penalize inconsistency, hence the scoring bands.
  10. Unless there's a new style of game, that's the only time I think there'd be a tangible difference. I studied for Sept 2017 out of the 2014 books and did just fine.
  11. If it's taking you an hour to write your LSAT sections and you're still hugely underperforming, I can't in good faith recommend writing the LSAT in a couple days. Since I assume it's paid for and non-refundable, you may as well use it as a practice, but I wouldn't want to be submitting that score. But this is all your call. And as to the thread title, I can guarantee you nobody has gotten into UofT (or any law school) with a November LSAT, but this is also me being a pedantic asshole about the fact that this is the first time ever a November LSAT has been administered.
  12. So a brand new account that posts a 4 year old article and adds nothing to it, looking to get a reaction. Shitposting has gotten really lazy.

    6000 characters is the limit. If (s)he’s at 1500 words, they’re way over the limit

    Getting in Law school without finishing undergrad.

    I know one person accepted to UBC after 3 years of undergrad. It's doable, but he had stats up the wazoo and family connections abound. He chose to defer it and ended up going to Toronto instead. So yes, it's doable, but it's not something to count on. Do the four years.

    You can bring a wallet with you into the test centre. And if you can't survive an hour long transit ride without your phone, that seems like a very first world problem...
