  1. The affirmative action is taking the steps required to remove the bias that was previously present, which disadvantaged minority groups. Removing that bias thus increases chances for diverse candidates, favouring them more. As stated earlier in the thread, the only time it may offer an advantage is when two candidates are equal in all respects, but one is a minority and one is caucasian. This offers the firm a chance to diversify its student class. Unless a firm for some reason has a diversity hire quota, they do not hire a diverse candidate who is weaker than a non-diverse candidate, just because they come from a historically disadvantaged group.
  2. When it comes to actual hiring decisions during in-firm week, your diversity status provides no advantage or disadvantage. Most Bay st firms will hire you truly on your merits, being blind to your diversity status. And that is what diversity and inclusion truly is: putting everyone on an equal level, and making hiring decisions with no regard for someones ethnic background. Diversity and inclusion is not giving diverse candidates a leg up.
  3. I was going to echo what was said above me. Do not rely on them for business - they all likely already have lawyers, and will not be waiting on you to finish law school to retain you/your firm, or to switch to you/your firm. You also have no clue whether you'd be able to take on work of that type or be at a firm that could.
  4. Will other Bay st firms follow? Or is this exclusive to the 'seven sisters'?
  5. I don't know of A+ averages, but I know people got A averages. But what I'm surprised no one mentioned, is that these are just simply smarter people. There's no secret they have. They probably work just as hard, or even less, than other students. They just grasp the material better, have higher intellect, can spot issues then analyze more efficiently and quickly then most, and are skilled at writing a law school exam. Its kind of just in them - they just intuitively have better competence.
  6. I had 2 minor typo's in my personal statement and still got in to all Ontario schools. My LSAT and GPA were both above what they look for though. They were something like a forgotten word, for example: "During high, I taught XYZ...." the forgotten word is school. They were not errors of substance like their instead of there.
  7. You will be at a significant disadvantage attending a UK law school, unless attending one of the elite ones listed above. There's a reason they are easy to get into,.
