  1. Hey everyone, sorry for hijacking this thread but I'm just wondering if it'd be appropriate to send some kind of virtual gift (5$ Starbucks card or something) alongside a request for a zoom chat?
  2. I don’t think it matters much. The general consensus seems to be something that you enjoy and can do very well in. One thing I’ll add is that I spoke with a partner at Bennett Jones who said an undergrad degree heavy in reading and writing (eg. History, Poli Sci, etc) will be very advantageous in law school and beyond.
  3. That could be the case, but I also think a lot of schools aren’t granting deferrals just for COVID, and people wont want to risk re-applying next year in whats likely going to be a significantly more competitive applicant pool.
  4. If you have a good L2 it could be a good idea to apply to schools that take L2 over cgpa
  5. Very likely a language issue in my opinion. I’m sorry but it is very noticeable in your responses to this thread.
  6. Accepted via email this morning cGPA 3.3, L2 3.93 LSAT 168 Varsity athlete, some volunteering, undergrad moot competitions.. I’ll be declining. Best of luck to everyone still waiting!
  7. Hey everyone, I was recently approved for Scotiabank's PSLOC and they give you 3 credit card options: Passport Visa Card, Gold American Express Card, or Passport Visa Infinite. The annual fees are very similar, and credit limits and interest rates are the same. The main differences seem to be the points you receive for different purchases. Here's a link to the details for each: https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/credit-cards/visa/scotiagold-passport-card.html, https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/credit-cards/american-express/gold-card.html, https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/credit-cards/visa/passport-infinite-card.html. I don't plan on travelling that much so I'm leaning toward the American Express.. I'm just wondering if anyone who's gone through this process with Scotia would mind sharing which card they chose and why? Thank you
  8. I advise you look into it further, get more details and ask for an explanation. Scotia initially denied me because I had an account closed with an outstanding balance and they wrongfully assumed it had been closed for derogatory reasons. Turns out they were just unfamiliar with how BMO closes their student lines of credit. BMO closes the line after you graduate (undergrad) so you can withdraw anything, you just pay it off.. So a completely standard and normal procedure regarding a BMO account with about $4k outstanding was completely misinterpreted by the Scotiabank rep and led to me being initially denied. That being said all I had to do was contact BMO and confirm a couple things and then I was fully approved no problem.
  9. What do you mean? Taking a year off affects your eligibility?
  10. From what I’ve seen with other schools in Canada and the US, even if it is hybrid, the in class portions will be optional. So you wouldn’t be penalized if you don’t move and opt for distanced learning only.
  11. Hello everyone, I am set to start at Queens Law in the fall, and I hope to work my way into corporate law. I recently had the opportunity to speak with a partner at a large Bay St firm and he mentioned that he took the CSC during law school. He didn't directly suggest it for me, but I'm wondering if it would be a good idea for me to take it before law school. I have, however, heard from some people that it's pointless if you don't plan to work in a job that directly requires it. I majored in history with a certificate in business (primarily econ), so part of me feels like I may be at a disadvantage when it comes to finance. Any suggestions? Is the CSC worth it? Are there other online certificate programs that could help me learn more about securities before starting in the fall? Thanks!
  12. Someone mentioned the cost of moving closer to work as a reason to ask for a better salary. I agree but also keep in mind that you can write off that moving expense on your taxes. Most of you probably knew that, but I figured I’d throw it out here in case anyone didn’t!
