  1. can any upper years comment on the Marq (75 Ann St)? is it a good building to live in? do other law students live there? about to pull the trigger on a lease.
  2. ryerson had their class filled before April 1? that's surprising.
  3. I started studying for the LSAT with 7sage and it gave me a good foundation. however, I think harvardready is what pushed me to the score I needed to get accepted. the 7sage guy talks like a robot and yoni at harvardready explained everything in a laid back kind of way that made sense, so I would probably go to harvardready.
  4. personally I do not think you need that much time to go over your personal statements. I was busy studying for the LSAT in the summer the year I applied for law school and did not even start personal statements until October. I don't think it would change anything if I started earlier, but I would probably start in September if I was not so busy studying with school and the LSAT.
  5. I am in the same situation. personally do not think we are getting off. if you refer to Facebook group, it is at 286 members, which might not be a great indicator, but it is something. congratulations on queens it is a great school!
  6. won't people who pursue online law school be at a disadvantage? I can't imagine starting law school online. thank god for western offering a mostly in person experience!
  7. Based on what happened last time OASIS was down, there was a significant amount of people wait listed after it started working again. What if they’re doing a mass acceptance wave off the waitlist? Guess we will only know when it starts working again.
  8. Aren’t these “fluffs” needed for OCIs in 2L? Wouldn’t 1Ls be disadvantaged by not having moots, clinic opportunities, etc?
  9. Could you provide the info for your rep? I can’t find any lists for TD like scotia has.
  10. So you can apply for a LOC in 2L? If so is the limit lower or the same? I don’t need it in 1L and might not need it after, but want to make sure the door is open in 2L.
  11. on a side note, you got a 3.99 gpa in medical sciences at Western? that's impressive, I would also write the MCAT if I were you since it should not be that hard if you can get a GPA like that in that program. you can probably get into med school too if your MCAT is good enough good luck and all the best!
  12. I was looking at the Western Facebook group for off campus housing and off campus housing looks significantly cheaper compared to residence. London Hall is 9800 for the 8 months, whereas you can probably find a decent room in an apartment for around $700 a month (5600). I know prices are a bit cheaper because undergrad students are trying to give away their leases since most undergrad classes are going online. However, I was leaning towards residence because if the coronavirus situation gets worse, Western is going to refund the residence money if campus closes. If I sign off campus, I would still have to pay for months that I might not potentially live in the apartment. So I guess my question to fellow Western students is: are you living off campus or on campus given this info? I was leaning towards residence as well since other 1Ls might also be living there (apparently law students live on the same floor)
  13. I took 7 first year courses in my 4th year and got into many schools across Canada. It doesn’t matter if you take easy classes that’s what I did and it actually helped me get 4.0 in my last year.
  14. Just because you meet the median stats at a school doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get in, your softs are also a deciding factor.
  15. I heard of someone getting accepted at Osgoode 2 hours before the firm OLSAS date last year. It’s not over until it’s over.
  16. For the people who say alcohol, isn’t it bad for memory? I cut out alcohol while studying for the LSAT and noticed my scores went higher. Wouldn’t you do better in law school if you cut alcohol?
  17. your acceptance will become firm July 2. it does not matter if you pay the deposit
  18. I am in a similar situation as you, but another Ontario school. I want to participate in ECs (clinics, moots) but want to stay at home with my family too. it's a tough situation, but I am leaning towards moving and sacrificing my quality of life to have a successful 1L. I'm guessing there would be upper years to help us understand law school too if you move, so there is that I cannot imagine trying to do law school the first semester alone. if I was in second or 3 year, I would definitely do it online
  19. the funny part is I just got a response back. you guys think Western is on these forums? should just post here instead of emailing
  20. I applied here https://studentservices.uwo.ca/secure/admissionBursaries/
  21. Has anyone submitted a bursary application at Western and got a response back yet? I submitted mine over 2 weeks ago and still have not gotten back a response. I thought the timelines were expedited for accepted students.
