  1. Hey everyone! I have a very random question but just want to get an idea of how the first summer in law school is like? I have just been accepted to Windsor Dual JD and I am most likely going to accept.  Now my brothers getting married in June 2020 and I’m wondering if we are required to take classes in the summer of first year? Just want to get an idea how the workload is going to be given that it will be a week long of wedding festivities and whether I can attend or not.   Thanks in advance!

  3. Accepted! Olsas GPA was around 3.12 and LSAT 153 and 150.
  4. Partially agree. I can honestly say so much about this topic right now. the real estate market (esp in GTA) is crazy. Banks are getting so strict with approving mortgages even for people with 750+ credit score and no debt. Many, if not, banks ask that you put at least 10% down if buying property under 500,000. and 20% if more than 500,000. Even then, there is no guarantee.I recently tried putting down 10% for a condo which was a little over 500k. and my application got rejected. I mean? I have a very stable job which clearly proves that I can pay the mortgage and I also have 0 debt. I literally mean ZERO. I only use my credit cards for points and then pay them off before the due date. Ironically, I work at a bank myself and the reason is because a lot of people who were putting min. % down were defaulting on their mortgages which called for a tons of foreclosures. so banks were probably like nahh we need more security. Sorry for the rant, as I said, I have so much to say when it comes to buying a property in this region.
  5. The feelings mutual guys! 🤣 I read “Gradadmit” and immediately thought “omg is this really happening” until I read the actual email
  6. No. Not happy at all. I think I deserve way more. At least 100k for putting up with my boring and lame co-workers.
  7. Thank you!! Did you take classes or private tutoring? I’m thinking classes would be better since I’ll get more hours as compared to 25 for private tutoring
  8. Omg that’s awesome!! I hope I’m able to improve on RC too because it sucks the life out of me 😂
  9. Hello Everyone, Hope everyone had a good Christmas!! I am browsing around for LSAT prep courses that would help me improve my score. I've written twice (153 on both). I took Kaplan twice but CLEARLY its not helping. I wrote a disclosed test so I was able to see where I messed up. LG was perfect. Logical reasoning about 60% correct and RC about 30% , so thats where I need help. I've heard of Harvard Ready and wanted to hear whether you think it'll help me increase it from a 153 to at least a 160ishh Planning on writing the July 2019 OR September 2019 LSAT Any feedback is appreciated
  10. I would NEVER go to the UK if I plan on practicing in Canada. Although I would have no issues with finding an articling position once I come back (Blame Nepotism), I don't think it is a good idea to study in a country other than where you want to practice. If we were talking about any other program, it would've been a different story.
  11. SCOTIABANK Professional LOC!! Low interest rate, high rates of approval and you have about 16 months after you graduate to make monthly payments
  12. I didn't read the entire thread so I may be repeating what others have already stated but I can assure you one nothing that nothing worth having comes easy i.e. a lot of money without substantial amount of work. Sounds cheesy I know. but its the truth. I'm not a lawyer myself so I can't comment on how exactly you can become a partner but both my parents are lawyers. my brother has been practicing for a few years as well and I have seen the amount of work they have to put in. Sometimes over 90 hours a week... If you are looking to make a lot of money with minimal work, I suggest changing your career path. Assuming you're in Ontario, get into real estate. Also, if you have enough savings, maybe start up a trucking company. 🤣 Trucking business is good money too and you can eventually own trucks and not drive so its a win win situation in my opinion
