  1. I'll be starting law school in the fall regardless of whether it's in-person or online. It sucks that it could be online, especially since the social aspect of law school (meeting other students, getting to know the profs, networking, etc.) is something that I think is so important to the experience, but I haven't struggled with online school so I don't think it would affect my in-class learning, and the networking is something that I can still get as a 2L or 3L when the pandemic is over.
  2. Thank you so much, all of these resources are very useful! thank you, this is awesome!!!
  3. Thank you so much for your in-depth response! It is my dream school because of the JD/MA program that they offer, and also because it is close enough for me to commute and live at home. (mostly the JD/MA thing though, that's a big thing for me.) Debt is not a huge concern for me because I have family help paying for my tuition, but I will definitely take this into consideration! I'm not married to the idea of family law, but I figured it was better to have an idea now than when I'm already committed to a school. Thanks again
  4. Oh I'm so glad someone made this thread, it has been over a week for me and I was getting really nervous! I assumed it'll take a while but I'm glad to hear it's not because I messed something up
  5. Does anyone know the timeline for updating the GPA with fall grades/does OLSAS recalculate? My second transcript was received by OLSAS yesterday and I am wondering when those grades will show up on my Academic Background.
  6. Hey guys!! So U of T is my dream school and I'm hoping to go into family law; I know that there is a focus on corporate law at U of T but I'm wondering if anyone pursued family law and how they found their experience as a student and after they graduated? TIA
  7. Last year they posted on the 25th saying the second wave had been completed! I'd say next week or the week after
  8. How much will the update affect your GPA? My instinct would be to wait, but if you want the update to count towards round 2, then I can't see the harm to it except that you're paying for each submission so it's an extra cost. I'm a 0L though, so maybe someone with more experience would be able to chime in.
  9. Hey guys, I applied for a combined JD/MA program and was wondering if there are any current students who can comment on their application/acceptance experience. Did you receive admission to the joint program before you received admission to the master's program? Were you only accepted into the JD track until your master's acceptance? Or did the MA acceptance come first? U of T's site says they tend to notify students of master's acceptances in late March/early April but I'm wondering if it's different for students applying to the joint program considering the deadline to accept/decline a law school offer. Thanks!!
  10. Is it possible for you to email your professors and explain the situation? They might be able to make an exception for you and get yours out faster.
  11. Along with this, I'm pretty sure U of T has a timeline somewhere on the website; it might be in the downloadable brochure.
  12. Aahh okay fair enough! I guess with all the 3.9s and 4.0s I'm seeing on the site I've tricked myself into thinking that a 3.73 isn't that great. I'm hoping for U of T so that's where my stress comes from haha But yeah, I've been confused about posts like that as well, especially when you take percentiles into consideration. My 173 was considered 99th percentile, so how did so many people get 170+?
  13. It definitely happens, though. I got a 173 on the LSAT and my GPA is only 3.73 -- I did a year abroad which really affected my cGPA as all of my classes were in my second language.
  14. I hope this doesn't come off as insensitive but this made me LOL. The way it's phrased haha. I didn't receive a call either, but don't worry, we still have plenty of time
