  1. Hey guys, I’m starting to work on my ABS for this years application cycle and I’m a bit confused about verifiers, namely the mandatory section where we must input their address. Does this actually mean we have to contact bosses/supervisors from previous jobs/activities and ask for their address to put on this form, or am I misunderstanding something? Can we put the address of the workplace instead or are they expecting us to reach out to our chosen verifiers asking for their personal home address? (I’m not 100% sure some of my previous bosses would be comfortable providing their address). Also, for awards and achievements, does this include in-course merit based awards/scholarships during undergrad, and if so who would we use as a verifiers for that (with the whole address concern in mind as well)? I’m just finding the ABS a bit vague and any help with these questions would be appreciated!! Thanks
  2. This is extremely helpful to know, thank you so much for taking the time to write a useful response!!!!
  3. Thanks for saying that, I guess I just see all the high GPAs in the UofT and Osgoode accepted threads and start to feel concerned that mine doesn’t stack up.
  4. Not helpful! Seeking genuine advice for whether a high 170 would better offset my subpar GPA, as I am concerned that my current combination of stats is not competitive for UofT and OZ. Thanks!
  5. Hey guys! Just another chances thread here, I’d appreciate anyone’s opinions/feedback specifically for UofT and Osgoode! Stats are in the title, got the 174 on the July LSAT (first write) and my grades are converted using the OLSAS scale. My top choices are UofT and Oz but I worry that my grades are a bit low. I do have equity considerations that resulted in one bad year of undergrad (an unaccommodated physical disability) which I will discuss in my part B. Might it be worthwhile rewriting the LSAT to push for a high 170? That might seem like a dumb question but I’m wondering if the difference between my 174 and say a 178 would make any significant difference in my chances given my lower CGPA? Thanks
  6. This makes a lot of sense thanks so much for your insight and taking the time to respond!
  7. I have a question regarding how law schools look at GPA. Do law schools only consider your OLSAS cGPA, or do they also look at your actual transcript and take into consideration your transcript GPA in the context of the difficulty of your undergraduate institution and program? I ask because after calculating my OLSAS cGPA, B3, and L2 (UofT undergrad), each of these dropped significantly from my actual UofT GPA to my OLSAS GPA. I think this is because an 85-89%/A/4.0 grade from UofT translates to a 3.7 on the OLSAS scale, dragging all of my 4.0/A grades down to a 3.7 and seriously compromising my GPA. I totally understand that converting GPAs to OLSAS scale is supposed to level the playing field and make things more fair, but does anyone know if law schools will take into account how the grading scale of the Undergrad institution converts to the OLSAS scale and how GPAs from different undergrads may be affected to a greater or lesser extent by the OLSAS conversion? Feel free to PM me if I didn’t explain this correctly Thanks!
