Giving a firm one month's notice of taking a month off is a horrible idea - even if you have that much vacation time, it would be throwing them something they'd need to compensate for without much time. And, I mean would the person suggesting that just be filling their calendar in that time with appointments they knew they had no intention of keeping, or would their boss just come in one day and ask "sooooo... why is there literally nothing in your diary but just for June?"
If you've decided that you really do need to take a month to have a wedding this summer, that's kindof saying that you don't want new permanent employment this spring. Perhaps you could pick up short-term contracts, or be looking to provide freelance capacity to others in the interim?
It's not statistically different enough to matter between a 3.46 and a 3.52, I'm afraid. But the L2 would be an asset - upward trends are considered.
Stories like yours do come by Oz and mitigating factors are considered. Your 3.35 GPA could be offset by the L2 and the experiences you mentioned above.
What worries me here is the LSAT score. It can be offset if the committee decides that you would be a valuable addition to the Osgoode community, but it's borderline.
I did recommend acceptances for individuals who have gone through challenging circumstances, but each case is different and it's hard to compare them.
FWIW - I don't think you're out of the running. It'll just depend on the full extent of your application.
I currently use a Surface Pro 3, which has served me well in the past. But before entering 1L next Fall, I hope to get a MacBook Air. Hoping to wait for the 2020 version (based on concerns about the previous versions keyboard, but don’t know how accurate this is), and maybe for their summer/back to school deals.
We’ve tried, but it’s hard to talk to A because he’s just seems to be oblivious to what’s going on. FWIW I don’t think he’s necessarily purposely doing anything malicious. He just honestly doesn’t feel like he’s being given better treatment, so it’s hard to have that conversation. For example when we point out he’s getting opportunities we’re not, he either downplays it or just says it's random luck and how next time it'll be different. And when we tell him to either pitch him on the group work, he just says how busy he is, but he’ll come to it when he’s wrapped up something. We do all have to work together on a daily basis, so me and the other junior didn’t want to strain things too much, especially knowing the manager would take A's side anyway.
