  1. in Ontario the deadline is Nov 1 for the application due, but you can write the LSAT in January. your application gets considered afterwards when the schools get your score.
  2. I'd be interested in knowing. I was honestly thinking about leaving halfway through the test but I knew it would be a waste of $300. even though you seem quite the genius I would be surprised if you got perfect on that.
  3. 7sage. they literally changed my LSAT score. I got -1 in LG on the real day and they are to thank for it. I basically just did every hard game in LG. Try PT 88 games if you want to have some 'fun'. The key to LG is time. so practice, practice and practice more. I actually enjoyed LG after I got my timing perfected
  4. I really like this. The advice I posted suggests the end of the week should be used to clean up your notes as well, so I am guessing that is very important. It's also a great idea to take Saturday's off. I am assuming Saturday's were used for studying a few weeks closer to exams
  5. I concur. it is going to be interesting to see how inflated LSAT scores are this year
  6. I just finished Getting to Maybe so I started researching some study strategies and came across this https://supremeadvocacy.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Study-System.pdf While I recognize that everyone learns in different ways and there is not one strategy that is successful, is this a good routine in general to follow? By making weekly summaries, it kind of forces you to know what happens every week and it would be great to make my own summaries too. I have also read on this forum that students who make their own summaries often do better so that's why I kind of like this idea. Also open to other study strategies that worked thanks!
  7. can they actually reduce LOC limits? (assuming regular payment and a good credit score) they have the right to decrease credit card limits, but can they actually reduce your LOC? One of the reasons I actually went to Scotia over the others was that they were offering more money.
  8. The number of courses does not matter if you meet the minimum number they want. It's just the best two years, whether that is 8 courses or 10.
  9. Ontario schools require OLSAS, which allows the reference letters for all schools applied in Ontario to be sent from one place. There's also a questionnaire that has to be filled out. The other schools that require reference letters (Dal, TRU) are straightforward, the reference letters can be emailed for the majority of the schools directly from the person writing the reference letter. Calgary is similar to OLSAS. I am not sure about how McGill does theirs.
  10. What are some "nice" watches under 1500? A watch that I could wear to networking events, OCIs, interviews, etc. I was looking at Tissot but not sure if that's nice enough. don't want to get anything super expensive until I graduate.
  11. The proposal you are making would be unfair to law students not only at Ottawa, but every other school. It would be bad for the legal market to increase the number of seats and articling would be even harder to secure than it is already.
  12. thanks for the info everyone. after seeing all the positives about the amex its kind of hard to say no so I am going to get both. the AMEX has a better rewards program and I would probably just get that card only if more stores accepted it.
  13. that's weird. my rep emailed me the following options: Visa and or Amex Card $10,000 Limit Your choice of: No Fee Momentum Visa, No Fee ScotiaGold Passport Visa Card or No Fee Gold American Express Card or your choice of 2 cards at a limit of $5000 each That card is definitely better. I will contact my rep to see if I can get that
  14. law schools definitely will not care about if you wrote it normally or flex test. however, I do question if the flex is easier. Personally I think scores are going to be inflated this year because writing the test at home allows people to overcome two barriers; test-day anxiety (writing at home is much better) and having less sections (more focused, I usually struggled in the 5th section). It might mean you need a higher score to get into law school next year, but your 170 is definitely good. a 170 is a 170. with a decent GPA, a 170 gets you in everywhere in Canada. that score means you are technically eligible to be an LSAT tutor.... at least at Kaplan.
  15. Yeah both cards are waived and no fees. However, I was looking at the cards on the website, and it appears as if the Visa does not have a welcome bonus. The Amex does and gives 20,000 rewards points. These are the two cards Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite* Card https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/credit-cards/visa/momentum-infinite-card.html Scotiabank Gold American Express® Card https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/credit-cards/american-express/gold-card.html I am not sure if I should go forward with the AMEX as I will not be using it after I get the reward points (mostly because not a lot of places accept AMEX) and it likely is not good for my credit to cancel the card after the points are redeemed. $200 for a credit hit does not look good
  16. This is very personal and everyone has different backgrounds they respectively come from. I will be attending law school this year and I am a K-JD. I have spent my entire life in school and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every year when July/August comes around, I get the itch to go back to school and to be fair, it’s the only thing I have been exposed to. Personally I would rather finish school as quickly as I can so I can start working, saving, investing, buying a house and the list goes on... Also this might be a better time to go to school than any other time as the employment market is not looking the greatest it has been.
  17. I got the Scotiabank loc and have the option of getting both with 5000 or just one of those. I prefer having one card instead of two, but I have read others saying there’s a benefit in getting both. Can somebody explain this? I personally just want to get the VISA, but am considering getting both of them
  18. How is UFT able to have in person classes and Osgoode is not? that does not make sense to me.
  19. For L2 schools you mentioned, including TRU, Alberta, Calg, Dal, Queens you are in. For UBC and UVic calculate your GPA with drops and post your index score here to give a better idea of your chances of getting accepted there
  20. Normally I would, but I got a job offer that would substantially reduce the amount of debt I would have to take on for law school. Is there any option for you to do your undergrad online? Most schools are going online this year. This might seem difficult, but considering your GPA as of right now, I think you will be fine. You can manage working and going to school in undergrad with good time management. Definitely an avenue to consider if you can.
  21. neat single-malt whisky (has to be an expensive whisky of course)
  22. You have a B3 of 3.95? You would be competitive at UFT with a good LSAT.
  23. The few friends I have with a commerce degree are actually quite interesting people. I was genuinely asking and wanted to know if these types of prestigious programs had an advantage or not in OCIs.
  24. so someone with a commerce degree (Queens) or HBA from Western doesn't have an advantage for OCIs versus someone with an arts degree when interviewing for Bay Street jobs?
