  1. I got early acceptance into Osgoode with a 156 LSAT. not sure what my GPA was but I had a low to mid 80s average coming out of undergrad. Osgoode absolutely takes a holistic approach to admissions. I indicated in my personal statement that I was interested in one of the specialized joint programs which I feel helped with my admission.
  2. my experience is that employers like people who are passionate and hardworking, with a genuine interest in the area of law you're applying to. this is more important than grades! work on boosting up your experience and show employers that you really want the job. it also helps to have things like your resume and cover letter reviewed to make sure your emphasizing your top assets in your applications.
  3. pass / pass - felt good about both exams (except real estate, like c'mon what was that!?) and had to randomly answer the last 10 or so q's in the first half of the barrister. anyone know anything about how exams are scored as I've heard several different rumours about it.
  4. evidence with Paciocco and tax with Parachin were highlights from 3L. admin was also incredibly useful and interesting, although I took it with Dean Sossin so that is no longer an option. for those recommending statutory interpretation - kettles/porter session was a nightmare! just buy the book and read it on your own time, and don't waste your time with that course unless you don't mine (a) going through 150+ slides in one lecture or (b) a prof who has never taught and stumbles over his notes for class.
  5. my fall term I had class 2 days a week and winter 4 days a week in 3L. I know a lot of people try to build their schedules around lecture times etc. but I never did that - for the $$ you pay I took what I was interested in regardless of time of day and enjoyed my experience much more. with the subway now going to campus it wasn't such a big deal to commute, and I just made use of the library when I only had a couple hours of class in a day.
  6. if it will relieve some of your stress on the day of the exam I'd say go for it! anything to make it easier on yourself as it's a rough day, and having to worry about TTC is not ideal!
  7. apply broadly if you're not picky about the school! you never know what different schools are looking for in their selection criteria as grades and LSAT scores are absolutely not everything. I applied with a 155 LSAT and mid 80's average out of undergrad, and through I would have a tough time getting into Osgoode or u of t with those numbers, but then ended up getting waitlisted at some of the "safe" schools that I applied to and ended up at Osgoode. don't worry about inconveniencing your references - do what's best for you.
  8. I'm in the same boat over here for solicitor. tbh I'll be going into the exam without having read all of the materials - I still have 200-300 pages to go and can't manage to get through more than 20-30 pages a day. I haven't taken any solicitor classes other than tax and have had several breakdowns trying to read these materials due to extreme boredom. I honestly felt that carefully reading all the material for the barrister's didn't help and I still had to look everything up (overall I felt the barristers was fine though), so I'm just going to rely on charts and wing this one to preserve my sanity
