  1. Does legal research/writing have a textbook? If you include corporate in winter, that means 6 books. Would first year books cost approximately $1200 then?
  2. Every school in Ontario has a deadline of November 1. November 1, 2019 (11:59 pm ET) Deadline for applications to first-year English programs. Deadline for OLSAS to receive transcripts and references for first-year English applications. https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-dates/
  3. Just PM'ed you. If you are planning to go to England this year, check with NCA since most law schools in England are online and you need min. 2 years of in person study
  4. I was in a similar situation last year and I thought my gpa was not so high. I was actually considering England as you are Luckily, I found this forum, that helped me realize my GPA was good enough. I applied to Canadian schools and got into several all over Canada. I would advise you to look at the admission policies of the schools you’re interested in, some schools look at the last 2 years, which are often higher for most undergrads. Some schools drop credits. Some schools look at best 2 years. Do your research and take advantage of the admission policies of the schools that benefit you and your situation !
  5. OSAP is a combined provincial and federal loan, you do not have to apply for anything else
  6. My experience with Scotia was much more positive than yours. Applied a week ago, got approved today for 135K. It was a seamless process for me. Good luck Turtles, I hope you get your LOC.
  7. It seems as though your issue is with logic games. with recent tests, there has been a game that has thrown people off, trust me, it screwed me up too. when I was studying, I did the hardest logic games in the history of the test and it helped me develop sort of a routine on how to take on the games. Don't just do the games once. Do them again and again until you can finish them in a sufficient period of time. I always finished the easy games in 5 minutes, but the harder games would take 10 minutes. That is why timing is a major thing you should focus on.
  8. so shouldn't it be firm? mine says provisional too, when does it go firm ?
  9. GPA - 3.59 B2 - 3.7 LSAT 157 Going to Western so it doesn't matter but I wanted to post for people who are applying next year.
  10. Hi GM! Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it. it's been a while since I have seen you post, but I remember seeing you post daily back when the admission cycle started. it's nice to see that we are both going to law school. congrats!
  11. I know that Scotiabank offers 135000 for LOC, I was wondering what the maximum amount you can take out per year? Is it divided by 3 (45k a year). Is the full amount (45k) available in September? Thanks
  12. So RBC doesn't offer prime - 0.25? TD and RBC don't seem worth it then since they only offer $ 125k and Scotia offers $ 135k.
  13. you got rejected from UFT with a 3.92 1L GPA? That is unbelievable
  14. I am glad that I'm not the only one. I keep checking my OSAP and it was last updated June 2. I think it's going to take longer than it did in previous years due to the extra funding they're giving
  15. OP claims the following; 'work as an English Instructor and last year i have been recognized with the national award of teaching excellence in English language. Additionally, i was awarded with fulbright scholarship to UPenn, USA and Canadina university departmental scholarship in Ottawa in the past. Furthermore, i am the founder of a not-for-organization which is serving immigrants and refugees in Canada.' I can assure you that if I was a German instructor and won German teaching awards, I would get an LSAT score significantly higher than 130 as a diagnostic.
  16. if you got a 130, that means you got around 25 questions right (varies with the scale but it is around there). if you got 75 questions wrong, that means you are doing something very wrong. most people have a relatively average diagnostic, like a 150 (mine was around there). this means they don't have to do as much work to get a 160+. however, with a LSAT score of 130, that means you need to fundamentally change how you do things, reading the passages, analyzing arguments, mapping out LG games, patterns, etc. you should look into LSAT tutors and start studying ASAP for next year.
  17. Although it is important to read fast, I do not think it always helps. I found I did better when I slowed down, connected with the passage and was genuinely interested in it. I also tried doing the first 2 passages within the first 15 minutes, then took my time on the last 2 as they are harder. Timing is really important in RC and you should be spending most of your time in the passage
  18. Will 1Ls have the opportunity to join clinics this year? from previous posts, it seems that there is about forty spots for 1Ls in clinics and everyone applies. could COVID reduce spots and make it harder to join a clinic? (mainly interested in the business law clinic).
  19. There is around 2 weeks left until Ontario acceptances become firm, has anyone gotten off?
  20. As someone who is starting law school this September, I have to ask, is this something that commonly occurs in the top four Ontario schools (Queens, Osgoode, UFT, Western)? All these four schools say that more than 90% of students get articling after graduating, so is there really a need to worry if you get decent grades and participate in ECs? Are the statistics skewed in their favour? I just do not want to drop over 100k, 7 years of school and end up having no job.
  21. I took the class, so he was teaching everyone. he was always available after class to talk (the other instructors were great too). if you are interested in one on one time, you should get private tutoring
