ECs were good. No graduate degree  

applied access and explained the one horrible year that pulled down my CGPA

Goodluck

I've been accepted at Osgoode, so like 95% chance it will be there. Waiting to hear from Queens before I make any final decisions though!

Bless. I don't understand why people who have been accepted to their target school and will definitely be going there hold out on acceptances/declines; Makes zero sense. Congratulations! I did my undergrad at Western and my SO is doing a PhD there so Im really hoping to get in!

Well personaly, I've paid a lot of money to apply to various law schools and so I expect to receive my money's worth, by way of responses.

Just for the ego stroke? I think people are simply pointing out that keeping your acceptance in limbo for a school you're definitely not going to accept just hurts other students.

I'm effectively throwing away money if I cancel the applications of the schools I haven't heard from. When I go to a restaurant and order appetizers, a main course and dessert,  I expect to eat all the food I've ordered, I'm not going to leave after the main course just because I feel full. At worst, I'll get the dessert wrapped up to go.

To each their own. I see it more like ordering all the food on the menu and having everybody else in the restaurant stare at you starving while you only eat one entree. You're in at Osgoode and already making plans to live there - why care what Queens and Western have to say?

It's up to you, of course. Like you said, you paid the money. I'm still not 100% sure how it works but I'm going to cancel my Osgoode and Queens apps since I know I'm in at Western, my second choice.

What was your first choice? Further, why cancel the others? How do you know that Osgoode or Queen's won't give you a generous scholarship that will force you to reconsider Western?

My first choice is Ottawa. I have no interest in living in Kingston or north Toronto. I currently live in London, my fiancee has a great job here and could transfer Ottawa. My stats don't warrant a scholarship at Osgoode or Queens.

You sound like you have a good enough reason to keep your options open - I don't. We are dangerously off topic though, so let's move on. I just think if anyone is sitting on offers they KNOW they aren't going to take they may as well withdraw.

    • Non, c'est impossible, ce sont les crédits au moments de la demande d'admission.
    • Does anyone know if we can submit our Winter grades? Considering it would boost my cGPA. 
    • I have had to resort to a timer (count-down, not count-up) many times over the last few months. A timer is something I would occasionally resort to even in normal times, and would use a timer of between 25-45 minutes. Now sometimes I set a timer for 10 minutes just to get me actually doing something because there's no other way.
    • What do people recommend in terms of how I should organize materials? Whatever works for you. I found the easiest and cheapest method was hole-punching the top left corner and using rings I bought at Staples to separate each section. Professional cerlox binding looks nice but if you want to rearrange or there's an error, good luck fixing it yourself! Some people just use good old staplers. There's no right answer. The exam is largely a page-flipping exercise so your organization method should cater to this. Is it true to that it is recommended to just skip the whole Tax section? Don't skip anything. What you focus on is a different story. Better to update old indices or make my own or buy one? Like @baklava, I made mine in a group. It was annoying to do but probably helped a bit or at least it gave me peace of mind. I'd never have paid for an index though. If you read the materials, highlight well, and learn to work the ToC, you'll be fine. Where do I find old indices? My group worked from an index from friends who had written the bar the year prior. Should I be updating indices as I read the material? Or should I read all the material once, highlight it and then go back and update indices? If you plan to update indexes entirely on your own, as you read the materials, that sounds like a humungous waste of time with very limited payoff. Either work in a group or learn to use the ToC. Don't try and create an index by yourself, that is way too much work for one person. If you create a group index, yeah you just update as you read that section, so reading that section will take you longer than the rest. Is there a recommended amount of time we should spend on studying each day? Do the math yourself. How many pages do you need to read? How many days do you want to read them in? Divide one by the other. Read that many pages a day. Is it worth it buying practise exams and doing them? Do we have time to do them? Practice was absolutely essential for me. If you can access free exams great. If you can't, I guess you'll have to buy them?
