  1. I should have specified that these were the "worst" grades I heard of in the context of this recruit.
  2. I know someone who got a job through the Toronto 1L recruit with 2 As and 1 B, no connections.
  3. What do you mean by that? On what basis do you make that distinction?
  4. Very impressive stuff! Oz generally likes high-GPA splitters, so don't worry! If you applied to UofT, I think you have a great shot there too.
  5. Assuming that you took a full course load every year, you should be in at all three. For reference, my GPA was slightly lower than your's and I heard back from Oz before April.
  6. McGill is definitely the most affordable choice. However, keep in mind that they use a 4.0 scale, not percentages. This is important because every grade 85+ there is considered a 4.0, so you will likely not get the distinction that you deserve. They don't require LSAT, but will consider it because you have taken it. Also, you need to have a decent level of French language-comprehension (not necessarily speaking or writing).
  7. If your GPA really is considered ~90% by UBC, you still have a terrific shot. I would first confirm your GPA with UBC if possible and then calculate index.
  8. I definitely understand where you're coming from. It's only been two months of online law school and I haven't made many friends either. I wouldn't worry too much about cliques, since they would have appeared whether or not this semester was online. It's much more important to become friends with people with whom you genuinely get along. And ironically, the most popular people in my class have never even set foot on campus (not that it matters much).
  9. Good chance for Osgoode. They seem to like high GPA splitters.
  10. It's really bold of you to assume that I, and many others, would even have the opportunity of "summering at a firm before law school."
  11. A good PS does not need to be written like a story. It's much more important to answer the prompt honestly and directly.
