  1. That's exactly what I did in my PS, just touched on why the added responsibility was beneficial to making me a better student. Nonetheless, even though it's not something that would disqualify me, I hope having a limited amount of entries doesn't carry some sort of negative perception about not getting involved enough 😬
  2. So is it safe to assume that quality>quantity when it comes to EC's? For instance, I only have two on my sketch, but they're both 25 hr/week jobs I had through undergrad. My profile looks kinda bare because of it but I'm hoping the amount of time worked compensates for lack of involvement in other areas. Any feedback would be appreciated!
  3. Just wondering if anyone else that's been referred since mid December is still waiting on some sort of update
  4. Lol that’s not spare time that’s just an unhealthy obsession
  5. If Jim Benning was a lawyer this is what his cover letter would look like 😂
  6. Excluding the long hours and difficult work which aren't really exclusive to the legal profession, what else causes so many lawyers to burn out quickly and end up hating what they do?
  7. I think it makes sense, and you have a solid shot at a few schools for sure. I'll echo that you should check with each school regarding what courses they want in your L2, but generally upper year courses is what you should be aiming for. You also don't have to wait an entire year to re-apply, you can send your fall 2021 grades that they'll receive in Dec-Jan, and then submit your 2022 winter grades once you have them in April. The only thing is, if you're deferred until the spring there's going to be less seats available, so that's something to be mindful of if you're being cost conscious with application expenses.
  8. Just out of curiosity, is there a specific reason(s) you applied to the schools that you’ve applied to? I think you’ve done a good job of casting a wide net and applying broadly, but in saying that, I think you missed out on a few schools that you would’ve had a solid shot in (Dal/Windsor, both of which are in the same province as other schools you’ve applied to) Regardless, I’d still be shocked if you didn’t get in somewhere at some point, but there’s no harm in going back for another year and boosting your L2. You’re already so close with a 3.1- 3.3 and a 168, that extra GPA bump from a few courses may be all you need. Best of luck in the rest of your cycle, hope you get in!
  9. I think whoever started this thread has masterly trolled you all
  10. Also wouldn't be surprised if the test is only administered online at some point in the future. Anyone. that's written the LSAT flex and a normal LSAT in one of those test centres will tell you that the latter is an absolute shit show. The test is gonna evolve in the near future anyways when they take out the LG section, so maybe online only tests are another part of that evolution
  11. The beauty of this site is that you get enough of a sample size to know what each school wants, but the sample size isn't big enough to the point where most applicants can write themselves off. Each accepted thread seems to (very) roughly account for 30% of offers sent out , so I always figured that if you at least see one person get accepted with stats similar to yours, it's definitely plausible that you can be competitive, regardless of what those stats are. Then again there's so much that goes into each application that it's a bit of a crapshoot if you go strictly off GPA and LSAT scores. Hope everyone ends up somewhere though, the waiting game is brutal
  12. I know they use your B20 to calculate your GPA but what good is that when they "do not set minimum GPA or LSAT scores". Literally a black box in terms of what they want. The problem is that this is a business as much as it is a school. The more applicants they receive, the better. Imagine if every school had an index score that you could self calculate, or even just being transparent about how much each part of your application is weighed, like UBC and U of T. I don't doubt they try and be Holistic, but it seems like the term is thrown around so often just to avoid deterring a potential applicant. I stopped e-mailing admissions teams entirely when the response to any specific question I had was a copy and paste answer from their FAQ page lol.
  13. God what a useless and vague reply. Like seriously “we use a different calculation than most other law schools” what the hell does that even mean? We’re paying to have our application reviewed yet the process is so bureaucratic that it’s hard to even know what they want. Admissions teams across the country have to do a better job of communicating what they're looking for. You’d think we’re asking them for some top level nuclear codes with how little they tell us.
  14. Windsor is around 20k. It's good that you're trying to plan out your path, but I'd focus on doing well and enjoying your undergrad for the next 4 years. Tuition prices at U of T vs Windsor should be the last thing on your mind right now, just do whatever you can to put yourself in a position where you can actually choose between U of T and other schools. Good luck you crazy Bastard. https://www.uwindsor.ca/finance/fee-estimator
