Sorry I misread one of your posts, you're a 1L. Big accomplishment, I wish I could relate. Certainly gives you authoritative views on admissions committees, "bro".
Yeah one school as an example and the tougher one to get into in Alberta - and I only picked that specific LSAT range. They let in 8% of their class with a 3.5. And yeah no shit you need a top 15% LSAT, are you now saying your friend should both shit the bed in school and on the LSAT and still get admitted despite not having any additional factors besides "went to an engineering program"? Come on "bro", that's asinine.
Western's mean cumulative GPA is 3.5 with a mean LSAT of 161. https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/jd_admissions/class_profiles.html
Queen's best two years average is 3.73 with an average LSAT score of 160.
Ottawa asks for an A average and above a 157.
Winsdor doesn't even post stats as far as I can tell because they shit all over GPA and LSAT in their admissions criteria FAQ.
Your friend is just a born loser if they gave up without even attempting the LSAT just because they had a 3.5.
I'm a new user here, but have been a long-time lurker! I was able to land a few in-firm interviews with bay st. firms, but I'm extremely new to the process, and was hoping to get some insights as to what to expect in terms of procedure.
So, obviously I've been through the OCIs, and I'm now at the in-firm stage. I heard that most (if not all) firms have some sort of social events as part of their in-firm assessment - e.g. dinners, lunches, breakfast, coffee - but seeing how everything is done virtually this year, I'm curious if there's a virtual equivalent for those social events.
Also, how many more interviews can I expect after the Tuesday in-firm one? Assuming I do end up acing the interview on Tuesday (speaking things into existence!!!), will my next interview happen on Wednesday or Thursday, or both?
Thanks in advance!
It takes no money and three and a half hours to get a diagnostic LSAT score. Your point only makes any sense if someone did that and got an abysmal diagnostic. In which case the 3.5 GPA isn't even their main issue.
I think U of T might be an anomaly, or at least be in the minority, on assessing the difficulty of one’s undergrad. The collective wisdom on this site, at least from what I’ve read, is that most schools don’t take it into account.
