  1. My family member graduated at least 20 years ago, my info is out of date. They were hired to one of the big firms that today hire through OCIs. Still though, having an MBA will give an applicant bargaining power if they're applying to a boutique firm or a firm without a rigid pay structure. See above. Lol, ya in retrospect I should have considered that the experience of a grad two decades ago probably isn't representative of today 😛
  2. I have a lawyer in the family, they have their MBA. I am not currently a lawyer - all that I say is secondhand information from them. From what they've said to me, an LLM has very little value if you intend on actually practicing law. It is useful if you plan on being an academic. An MBA however can be very valuable. The process of getting an MBA entails some great networking opportunities (assuming you plan on going into business law). An MBA may prove useful if you plan on opening your own firm. If you're determined to join a prestigious firm, an MBA makes you generally more appealing, and if you're otherwise a strong candidate it gives you a lot of bargaining power. I know that when the lawyer in my family graduated they had their pick of the top firms and was able to demand a higher than average starting salary and benefits. They strongly suggest getting an MBA purely based on the doors it opens. Please note that when my family member got their MBA it cost roughly $8,000 in tuition each semester. In my opinion, an MBA is now prohibitively expensive unless you know exactly what you'll do with it and you know that as an investment it will pay off for you.
  3. With a L2 of 3.44 and LSAT of 173 you could get into Western and Queens, but it's not a guarantee. If you bump that L2 to a 3.6 I would say you have a pretty darn good chance of getting in. Good luck and congrats on the LSAT
  4. 3.3 gpa, with 172 LSAT. Accepted by Western and Windsor. I was not rejected from U of T, Queens, or Osgoode but I firmly accepted before I heard back from any of them. Edit: and I just saw that the post was asking for sub 3.0s. Lol disregard this I guess
  5. I believe it was early-mid Feb. It felt like it took them absolutely ages to make a decision.
  6. In today, already firm accepted elsewhere though. Good luck to all. CPGA 3.3, L2 3.7, LSAT 172
  7. In today as well, no email yet. Applied access. CGPA: 3.3 L2: 3.7 LSAT: 172 P.S. The whole process of applying to law school has been super stressful. I just want to thank everyone on this forum. I'm sure I would have blown a gasket if I didn't have you guys as a resource
  8. Mett is right. I called Western a little while back, they said another wave is coming soon.
  9. Hey all, I'm sure that, like me, a lot of you are super anxious about when the next round of acceptances is going to come out. I called Western today. They said the next wave would be sent out in a week at the earliest, two weeks at the latest. Good luck everyone!
  10. I think it could still be a while. I heard through a friend of a friend that a lot of law schools are running behind schedule this year. I think it has something to do with the change to a Jan lsat. I got the sense that the delay could last until April. This is totally unverified info though, so take it with a grain of salt.
  11. Haven't heard from any school yet. That's why I'm feeling anxious. Comforting to hear about UofT - thanks.
  12. lol. Not a joke. I'm just super paranoid and I've been trying to think of anything that might screw up my application.
  13. Put in queue on the 27th. Filled out part B. Last name H
  14. I know my stats look fairly strong for Western and Queens, but for my last 2 years I've been taking four courses instead of 5. I'm feeling fairly paranoid about how having a lighter course load will factor into schools' decisions, does anyone have detail on this? I say my L2 is around 3.7 because I took summer courses. If summer courses are included in the calculation I would have a 3.7 L2, if not I have a 3.61 L2.
