  1. Hey! Just wrote the Bar in June - The physical materials were not bound in any way whatsover - literally just ~2,000 printed out pages worth of information. You would likely need to print it all out, but you can decide whether the 2000 pages is cheaper to get printed elsewhere or just suck it up and pay the shipping cost. I found the cheapest printing prices at Staples, but once again, you can be the judge of that :)
  2. Not sure how to bring up the topic of the 10 days we're supposed to get off during Articling with my principals... What's the protocol? Do most people take the time off or not?
  3. I just passed both the Barristers and the Solicitors and used the OLE indices, but honestly, I felt like the Table of Contents was a lot more helpful.
  4. Feeling exactly the same way. Has anyone encountered any "Real-Estate Law 101" type articles/blogs that they would recommend to better understand this material?
  5. I think you should still try to find Articling if you can. I am seeing new positions pop up everyday, so you should at least apply to a few! Also, I believe you can back out of the LPP with all of your money until the first couple of weeks of the program, so you should do it ASAP if you want to avoid any financial consequences! Good luck I know it's hard but hope you make the right decision regardless!
  6. Believe it or not, we're likely not going to get a marriage contract either. My partner is a hopeless romantic and doesn't believe in trying to apportion our future estate based on financial considerations.
  7. Jumping in - but I know a few people who bought it from Emond
  8. Did you use any websites or apps that you can recommend?
  9. I bought the OLE indices, and those came with a sample exam!
  10. I'm gonna attempt the June one too
  11. Ok that's so reassuring. Everything has kind of been a whirlwind, and every wedding website makes it seem like the world's largest ordeal!
  12. Hahaha, definitely the planner in the relationship.
  13. Does anyone have any experience with wedding planning while Articling? I recently got engaged (very exciting), and thinking about getting married next summer, but I dont know if I'll be able to handle planning while trying to Article. Any advice or anecdotes?
  14. I also had well below-average grades in 1L, and improved significantly in 2L-3L. I think everyone is different, but something that worked for me personally was to use upper years' notes/CANs and then making my own quicksheets/tables based on those. I also started pre-writing for exams which saved me a lot of time during the exams that I could dedicate to issue-spotting and actually answering the questions. I think in 1L I didn't balance my time well either. I was too focused on "getting grades" so I put everything else on the back-burner for a full year, but for me that just did not work. So in 2L-3L, I did a lot more - joined some intramurals, focused on balancing between academics and extra-curriculars, and found myself doing a lot better. PM me if you want more tips
