  1. Didn't even know these existed, will definitely be checking it out. Thanks!
  2. This is exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much!
  3. Some of the links in previous posts don’t work anymore, so I wanted to ask - what are some recommended heels for an entering 1L? Any good brands to watch out for? Is it better to go with round toe vs point toe? Leather vs suede? I can sense I’m overthinking this way too much I’m just looking to make one good investment now and then stock up on more as needed!
  4. I might be jumping the gun a bit here, but is previous work on student newspapers/editing/writing considered important in the application process? I'm very interested in being a part of the Law Review, but I'm worried that my lack of experience working on anything similar in the past would hinder my chances. How difficult would it be to join in this situation?
  5. If you do end up deciding to enter the next cycle, try sitting down and writing without filtering yourself. Just write about why you want to study law, try to answer any suggested guidelines that the school has provided, then edit it into something you would want to submit. There is really no formula to this, or else everyone could simply write exactly what each school wants to hear. I didn't tailor my personal statement to any particular school and it was fine. Others may have tailored theirs specifically to each school and I'm sure it would still be fine. Precisely because there is no formula, just different individuals expressing their thoughts in different ways.
  6. The new tuition fees have already been factored into the calculator. "May 13 Important note: Our financial aid calculator has been calibrated to reflect the Ontario Government’s January 17th2019 announcement regarding tuition fees. It has not yet been calibrated to reflect the impact to incidental/ancillary fees. We will do this as soon as the full details of the policy have been released and the impacts on our tuition are understood." https://www.law.utoronto.ca/newadmit/firstyear#step2
  7. I think you have some very valid and reasonable concerns here, and in my opinion, available support networks should be really important in your decision. Out of the factors you listed, I think your long-term mental health is the key one to consider. Which decision would you be most comfortable with in the long-term? I wouldn't give subjective prestige too much weight here, because it really does change depending on context and individuals. With that said, I completely understand how the opinions of others can impact decisions, so I would say just try and minimize that factor as much as you can. You are not the aggregate of Windsor students as a whole. You are representative of your own skills and efforts. Now, I haven't attended any of the schools you listed, so I won't pretend I can provide a meaningful comparison between any of them for you. And even if I could, the decision will still ultimately be yours to make. I'm sure you've already looked into pros/cons of attending Windsor vs the other schools, and judging from this one post alone, you have raised valuable and important points to consider. I hope other posters can provide some more information to help, but at the end of the day, you're the one who has to actually go through with the decision. For that reason, I'd say take everything with a grain of salt, including this post, and place higher value on what you think will contribute most to your happiness and well-being in the long run.
  8. Just here to say that I also scored 151 on my timed diagnostic and after ~3 months of studying I ended up scoring 165 on the actual test. I was working full-time and didn't have the time to finish reading prep materials, but I did do a lot of PTs. Based on my extremely anecdotal n=1, you should not be discouraged by your diagnostic score at all. Just put the time and effort in and see how you do on the tests once you've actually had a chance to study.
