  1. A related question: how hard is it to be an above average law student and get a B+ average in 1L? What extra work is needed compared to the average law student? Thanks
  2. From what I remember, UFT uses best 3 years (fall and winter semesters only) so calculate using that since you have spring semester in the avg.
  3. do you have to do extra hmwk as well (like on ur own time) ? Did you go up in ur score and if so what did u start and end off with ? There’s a lot of homework with HarvardReady. If you do it all, definitely should get over 160.
  4. What about your LSAT writing sample? If you have poor writing skills and your writing sample has mistakes and ps is good, that is a big problem I think
  5. Depends what your intended use is. I'd say it's more than serviceable for reading/writing. I'm coming from having used a 32" TV as a monitor, which was fine.. just a bit fuzzy, so anything smaller than that is going to look better than I'm used to. The screen splitting is a pretty great feature. Gaming on the other hand, if you intend to do any? It's not great. I only want to use it for word and other school stuff, which is why I think the ultrawide makes sense so it looks good for those uses
  6. Can anyone post a grade distribution for Western? I cannot find anything
  7. I am also interested in this. Western has one small group class in 1L with 20-25 people, so maybe that might be in person?
  8. I had a question about the Queen's curve. I hear people saying queen's curve is better due to it being B+, does that mean employers look at a B+ more poorly at queens compared to a B+ at Western?
  9. I just bought this one. looks like a good deal, what do you guys think? https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/lg-29-ultrawide-fhd-75hz-5ms-gtg-ips-led-freesync-gaming-monitor-29wl500-b-black/13618806
  10. Being waitlisted is not something I would be happy about.
  11. If UBC is going online, I think Ontario schools have to. BC cases are way lower than Ontario so this is a no brainer.
  12. I have a 2016 MacBook Pro and the screen broke. Apple stores are closed for a while, so I was planning on getting a MacBook Air too before law school. I have looked into it and if you’re doing the usual stuff that students do (Microsoft office, web browsing, videos), it is the perfect laptop. I am probably going to buy one too if Apple stores do not open before September. You should wait until summer since Apple gives beats for free with the student offer
  13. Didn’t Western’s class size increase to 185? Still a small class and I like the small group thing
  14. What are your stats OP? Just curious to know what Ryerson law is missing
  15. Thanks! Yeah OCIs were the main reason. However, what if OCIs don’t go well? Wouldn’t it still be beneficial to transfer to UFT for the articling recruit? I am just trying to look for any benefits transferring to UFT, however, based on what people are saying, I would be better off staying at Western (which is an awesome school for corporate law either way) Sorry if I am annoying, but I just want to clarify any misconceptions I might have
  16. I am going to Western this year and was wondering if transferring to UFT (maybe Osgoode) in 2L would be worth it. My goal is to work for on Bay Street like many members on this forum, but I am definitely open to everything as I did not even start law school yet. Western’s OCIs (30%) are pretty good, but not as good as UFT. From my understanding, to be competitive as a transfer student, an average of B+ or higher would be needed. However, a B+ average would also be good enough for OCIs at Western, so wouldn’t transferring be pointless at this point? I have always wanted to go to a prestigious school like UFT, but I do not see the point if Western (which I totally love) can help me with my goals. I also have read about users having a hard time making friends when they transfer, and I hope I can have a close friend group at Western by end of first year , which I definitely would not want to lose as well.
  17. Yeah I agree with the other poster. Osgoode is not that good of a school to cancel another Ontario school offer and take chances on waitlist (excluding Ryerson of course)
  18. I think Ottawa is slow like normal and I am surprised I have not heard back from them, but not going there anyways so don’t care. However Ottawa is slow every year and I do not think it’s related to Coronavirus.
  19. I think this means that schools will open for in person classes based on the province. it makes sense for BC to open, but Ontario has literally almost nine times the cases as BC.
  20. Definitely not ahah, calculating booze expenses would make me depressed lol
  21. I was bored in quarantine, so I decided to calculate how much it costed me to get into law school in Ontario. after doing the calculations, it turned out I spent around $5000. this includes everything needed to get into law school, from LSAT fees (test costs $300), LSAT prep (this took up a lot), application fees (I applied to almost every school in Canada). at the end of the day, I am glad I spent all this money as it got me into a dream school of mine (Western). How much did you guys spend (for people who applied more than once add those too!).
  22. I highly doubt that anyone at Queens/Western/Osgoode/UfT will worry about competition with ryerson students, over 90% of the class has articling positions lined up at the end of 3L at these schools, which is a lot more that can be said than ryerson
  23. Is it possible to open a SLOC in 2L? I do not need one for 1L and have heard it is bad for your credit score to have an open LOC without using it. I most likely do not need it for 2L, but just want it there for emergencies
