you might be ok to apply to a school that looks at your best 2 then, but you'll be limiting yourself to those.
law school is going to be really expensive, $100,00 . I wouldn't worry about doing one more year in undergrad because it will be a drop in the bucket to what you'll spend total. However, it will increase your chances of getting in by a lot. You also should be confident that you can do better in courses you repeat if you do choose to.
Alright, so Queens is a Best two school that will take your 3.5 (once converted to the OLSAS grading scale, which may lower it a tad). Do you know your last two years gpa? Schools like Western and Dalhousie use your last two.
You know, I'm really not here to make this into an argument. Though considering the OP's questionably good-faith in starting the thread initially, maybe there's no other purpose to this now. But I'm honestly not even sure what I'm being called out for.
You say this sort of priority can be important to people. I don't disagree with either that statement as truth, or with someone choosing to have this priority when they have it. I was explicitly clear I'm not questioning anyone's priorities.
Then I stated something of my own as truth. That this priority - however or whyever it may be held - will be limiting. You haven't disagreed with that statement either.
Then you told me to do more training. Which is honestly a recommendation that I go and get my ideology corrected by more sensitive people than I am. As in, fuck you and your regressive beliefs, but you know, politely.
What the holy fuck did I even do that bothered you aside from stating a truth that you would prefer not to be true?
We agree on the facts. And if you think I need to be ideologically corrected in terms of pretending that true things aren't true just to make people feel more comfortable, I could argue that you need to be professionally retrained into acknowledging that true things remain true regardless of whether they suck or not, and regardless of your feelings about them, and our jobs as lawyers often involves dealing with true things even when we don't like that they are true.
I chose to ignore this the first time. But telling me to go get better training is fucking obnoxious. I've never yet had EDI hours that encouraged me to ignore truth just because it was uncomfortable truth. And even if I had that training, speaking as someone who has delivered CPD myself, I'm not under any illusions that crediting someone with the ability to train others makes their opinions superior in some absolute way. Ideology remains ideology even when it's given a gloss of legitimacy by forcing other people to listen to it and calling it "training." And any ideology that requires me to pretend something isn't true just to make people feel better about the world, rather than dealing with truth and helping them function in the world, is stupid and irresponsible. And antithetical to good lawyering.
