  1. Sorry for the long list of questions, any advice at all would be appreciated. When is the best time to look for an apartment to move into by August? Will there be good listings around this time, or should I wait until later months to really start looking? What parts of Toronto tend to have relatively cheap units that aren't too far from campus? Also, what are some good websites to look for apartments? I'll be a first time renter (lived on residence all 4 years of undergrad), so any other general tips about apartment hunting and what to look for in an apartment would be greatly appreciated as well.

    UofT always calls for acceptances?

    I got an email acceptance shortly after I got the call, so even if they can't reach you by phone it should be okay.

  4. I just wanted to say that I appreciate any who makes a reference to Connor McDavid in a non-hockey thread. Only in Canada!

    How do firms view your online reputation?

    Depends if it's positive or negative presence. Somehow I doubt firms would be aghast that someone they're considering won a piano competition or something. Even something potentially more stigmatizing like a video game tournament doesn't seem too bad, though I'll let actual lawyers weigh in on that. What kind of competitions are you talking about?

    Getting a bad grade in Fall 2018

    I liked your previous post and I'm neither as harsh nor anywhere near as experienced and knowledgeable on law school or the legal profession as theycancallyouhoju, but I do agree that stress management and self-awareness are very important. You're obviously very academically proficient given your GPA and the fact that you've gotten into a ton of law schools already this early in the cycle. But your anxiety and fears are causing you to self-sabotage. People who wouldn't have given a second thought to you beyond "wow, those are some good stats, good for them" if you'd just posted some banal questions and in the acceptance thread are giving you harsh comments and thinking less of you. I'm not saying they're right to do so, and I do get where you're coming from to some extent, but this is the reality of what's happening. And like theycancallyouhoju says, this is something you can change. Not for the sakes of those posters or for getting a job, but for your own mental well-being. From personal experience, constantly being stressed and worried over things isn't fun. It sucks and it drains all my energy and attention, essentially creating a self-fulfilling prophecy when what I fear is not doing my best or, worse, failing entirely. Getting a B+ isn't going to wreck your chances at law school or your legal career. But being perpetually anxious about this and any other perceived failure just might chip away at the benefits you can accrue from them, both in terms of your personal capacity and others' perceptions of you.

    I mean, there's a difference between "slacking off" and getting a B+ instead of an A+ and slacking off and going from an A to a D average.

    Timing for Queens Acceptances

    Well, it's already 2018, so I'm afraid that time has already passed. But I think Queens mentioned in their email that first acceptances come out in January.

    That makes sense since UofT bases admissions decisions on your B3 GPA, right? Not sure how much your last year of undergrad affects admission at law schools that use CGPA, though.
  12. Soo what I'm getting from this is that law students are neurotic and highly argumentative?
  13. Just got woken up by the call! 3.84 GPA 174 LSAT Last name X, didn't write either of the optional essays.

    @Megbean123 I know we're both just two strangers on the Internet, but I wish you all the best and I hope you feel better over your break!
