  1. Hello everyone, I'm here to once more selfishly take advantage of your wealth of knowledge. I'm looking for advice on the practicality (or advisability) of beginning 1st semester of 1L already working a part-time job. Lacking context, i'm very curious about whether this is highly recommended against and is likely to take away from my first year law experience. A bit of background: My last 3 years of undergrad I spent approx. 20+ hours a week doing parliamentary research work while a full-time student. I am currently taking a year off academically to staff a parliamentarian. I have since received several offers from law schools (and will undoubtedly be accepting at either Osgoode or UofT to remain in Toronto). The current parliamentarian I work for has very kindly offered to keep me on for as many hours as I'd like once the school year begins. I'm absolutely torn in the sense that I love what I do (and have been offered unparalleled flexibility), but would also like to expand my base of experience and not overwhelm myself in 1L. Would absolutely love to hear some perspective from people who went into law-school juggling part-time work (and the potential perils and pitfalls it presented), however all perspectives and advice are truly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Flipping shit at the office - in on OASIS as of this morning! Stats: 3.58 OLSAS CGPA, 3.66 L2/B2 168 LSAT Best of luck to everyone still waiting!
  3. That’s what I was hoping you’d say haha, thank you for your speedy reply!
  4. Apologies for contributing to the crowding out of this board with chances threads - however I hope you’ll humour my neurosis: how do the board experts think my chances look considering my stats? I’m hoping my meh grades are counteracted by what I hope are relatively strong holistic factors - 3 years of 20+ hours/week of parliamentary research work while a full-time undergrad + a current gap year staffing a parliamentarian (taking on their PMPBs, committee research work, etc). In at Western currently, waiting to hear from Osgoode, UofT, Ottawa & Queens. Thanks - and good luck everyone!
  5. Congrats all - have likewise been accepted! CGPA: 3.57, B2: 3.66, LSAT 168. Goodluck to all still waiting!
  6. Apologies for potentially beating a dead horse here, i've applied to UOttawa law with the following stats: 168 LSAT, 3.57 OLSAS calculated CGPA, with a 3.66 L2/B2. Although my grades are alright (and hopefully offset by relatively extraordinary professional experiences), my applications strength clearly lays in my LSAT score. How do my chances look at Ottawa, considering they tend to undervalue the LSAT relative to grades, and more generally how do splitters with higher LSAT scores and lower GPAs tend to fair in Ottawa's application cycle? Thanks, and good-luck out there all!
