  1. I actually worked in few organizations that have people's personal info and their stuff are just flying around.....so i know there is no such thing as secure.....so I would rather be skeptical to what can be released by not giving up the chance for a good application. good luck to you as well Musahi
  2. yes thats when it becomes licensing I understand that. I am just bringing up concern, I am not saying that they should not request info like that. I am just trying to make a BALANCE between the two protecting my personal info and try to get the application done. I know a lot of licensing authorities request info like that they wanted to make sure licensed people are reliable etc..... this is because I got harassed by private message but i like to keep the post stay positive. Good luck everyone
  3. Thanks albertabean for clarifying. I agree with you admissions committees are very discreet. And like what tagger said it is applicant #xxx. I am wondering if application will go directly to them or it will pass through other staff...(but I guess I can't think too much) plus what if the OLSAS system being hacked? etc... and I think Canuckfanatic answered my question. Thank you . (Just a side note even zoom was being hacked too. People can jump to the meeting in zoom without permission. But I guess now they improved.) I create this post to see if anyone has similar concern when they are doing the application or leave the verifier "N/A" Seriously, if you have a perfect life and still in university of course you don't have much to worry about. You probably just have your previous volunteer supervisor or a professor to write you reference etc. Please do not send me a message like if you do not feel comfortable don't apply! This forum suppose to encourage people to discuss concern and exchange ideas.
  4. sorry this may sound a bit silly but I have this concern and need some input regarding the information you provide for law school application. My conflict is I know law school wants to know more (almost everything) about you but since "info" are put in their database. My doubt is it will pass through a lot of people before getting to the admission committee. I assume the admission committee will keep it confidential but there is always bad guy out there. So I am a bit conservative in laying out all the things in detail on the application......and it is quite hard to pick and choose what to include, what is not and to what extend. They are pretty much tide together to make today's "ME". e.g. in the sketch..can i put N/A in the verifier? Resume list your work experience.....and personal statement list your background.......pretty much the whole package....my whole life is there..... Anyone has the same doubt or is it matter to you? or have anyone suspect info was stolen through this application process? Also when you have someone proof read for you, how do you delicate the stuff to them to proof read? do you know them well personally or the stuff is being divided so they don't know the whole thing about you? feel to to PM me if you do not want to post on the forum. thanks a lot. 😄
  5. In the OLSAS application under sketch/verifier , click help, it mentioned Note: OLSAS cannot advise you on your ABS. You are expected to use your own judgment in completing it. If you have specific questions about the content of your ABS that are not covered by the instructions provided, contact the law schools for further guidance. and from some of the old postings in this forum and some schools' information session, I think you can create it the way you want to present. They want to see how well you present and organize the stuff. I completely erase mine after and type it in excel before listed one by one again into the sketch. It display the same sequence as you entered. they do not sort it by date or let you to move around. Anyone please correct me if I am wrong as I am filling out the application as well for this cycle. Thanks
  6. it is a bit off topic, most of the line of credit or even mortgages are callable loans which means the bank or the financial institution can pull back at anytime. I don't know much about the PSLOC, I imagine it is like another line of credit, so it will be base on your credit score and your repay power. I am not trying to increase another level of anxiety but that's what the reality is. That's why now the govt is trying to ask the bank to allow defer mortgage payment etc....but keep making payment is a good sign for the bank to consider call you the last if they do.
  7. For those already in Law School: Can someone kindly provide some example of how diversity/ life experience/ different perspective come into place to enrich the class discussion? e.g. why law school would like you to show your leadership skills? experience? award etc.... I never attend a class or lecture for law so when I heard something like student with different background and perspective will benefit the discussion.....I cannot imagine how that benefit the study of law. Any input is great so I can get a better picture of what to include in the personal statement. Maybe something that is minor to me but it is "good to know" for law school. many thanks
  8. I agree with MountainMon too. I also think that because the May June July Aug LSAT do not count into the retake limit. so people can take it and like what you said the flex make it easier for people to take the test. so i am not surprise the number of total test taker increase. In addition, i agree that with this economy situation who wants to take that kind of debt if they already struggle with the job market or just finish their undergrad. it will take them forever to pay back. For those that are not living in the GTA, the cost of living (housing) is quite high. If you are lucky get admitted to U of T ($35,000/yr) + living in downtown condo by yourself (start $2000/m), there is no way any kind of loan can pay for that for 3 years. I am hoping it is going to be less competitive for this cycle.
  9. i don't know it neither. I quoted what 0Lawschool2020 said
  10. is Canada same proportion of applicant increase as the US i.e. 30%? I am selfishly hoping that classes will be online for 2021/2022 then portion of the applicants will defer because of the tuition really not worth for online only especially in Ontario or banks are not providing financing to students........so the pool will shrink a bit........ I will still go if I get admitted somewhere even if it is online.....
  11. i have the same question. what is actually worth to mention in the CV for application? it can't be the whole life job experiences.... it is kind of duplicate from the sketch as well. also for example if you run your own business, worth to mentioned the project ? skills or experience relate to law?? any inputs or format that can share is great thanks
  12. The above post is worth to read contact OLSAS if you are not sure, everyone's situation maybe different. you definitely don't want to mess up with the transcript
  13. I have a very low embarrass LSAT score and planning to reach high 150s to even break 160 for Nov. I have no problem exchanging ideas etc and stupid questions. I think it is also helpful to more like a mental relieve. (my family start getting sick to hear I talked about LSAT) By email only. I am going to set up an anonymous email for myself to LSAT study only anyone is interested please pm me. I don't have lots of money to pay for private tutor to do that. High scorer welcome but I am starting at a very low point right now. thanks
  14. 100% agree it was hard...not even talking about now you need to use that GPA for law school.... I wonder if the law school admission committee knows that. Half of the class in the final was failed.
