  1. DSW has a huge sale. In my local store, everything was $40 or under, so that’s a good place to check for affordable shoes.
  2. Thanks! This really shows there is no one way to tackling these exams. Glad to know the timing was good
  3. Would you be willing to share whether you used the DTOC or an index?
  4. I did the articling recruit last summer and was blessed to land a couple of offers to choose from. In regards to reaching out to firms, reaching out to people at multiple levels is a great idea! I initiated the conversation by sending a simple email telling the articling student/associate a bit about me, my interests and asking to set up a phone call. Everyone was quite responsive and willing to chat. Personally, I reached out to those who had articled at the firm or associates who practiced in my area of interest. In one instance, I also spoke to some lawyers on the hiring committee. I also named those who I spoke with in my cover letters. Whether it’s former articling students, associates or someone on the hiring committee, I found everyone I spoke with had something interesting to say that helped me tailor my cover letter and also gave me more things to talk about in the interviews.
  5. Yeah the score report breaks down your results compared to other test takers by section (i.e. PR, civil lit, crim, family, public) which I found helpful. It also provides a breakdown of your performance compared to others in some more specific categories like motions, appeals, investigative powers, etc.
  6. I did it recently and you can only do it once. You get a score report at the end that shows how you performed compared to others as well as your percentage scores, but you can’t access any of the questions or see what you got right/wrong. There is a timer but it’s catered for the longer exams, so I just timed myself on my phone instead to make sure I stayed on track. I found the exam really helpful to pinpoint my strengths and areas I can fine tune before exam day. It also gave me an idea of my performance compared to others.
  7. @BringBackCrunchBerries thank you so much for your response! This was very helpful, and will definitely save me time. I will try my hand at this approach in combo with indices during practice. @BlockedQuebecois and @BringBackCrunchBerries , I also agree that studying for the bar exams doesn’t seem to be like a regular law school exam. After reading all the materials, it seems like a better use of my time to know how to navigate the materials using the study tools.
  8. Hi everyone! I am currently preparing for the Ontario Bar Exams. While I have an index and will likely be using that on the exam, I was wondering whether those of you who used the DTOC find that it needed annotations? If it did, does anyone have an annotated DTOC for the Ontario Bar exams that they would be willing to share? I find that while there are many resources online for indexes, there is not much for sample annotated DTOCs.
  9. Regarding charts, I can see why for the barrister exam they would be helpful (timelines, appeal routes, etc.) However, for the solicitor exam were charts helpful? Or was it more efficient to simply use the index and find the answer in the materials?
  10. Could someone please confirm whether the professional responsibility for the barrister and solicitor materials are the exact same (I.e. can I just photocopy my highlights on the barrister PR materials and put it in my solicitor PR materials)?
