Strangely yeah that’s what I calculated. I think it’s because I have a lot of “A” grades which increase in weighted value by a decent amount on the 4.3 scale, as opposed to “A-“ or “B+“ grades.
I used the scale on Dal’s website to calc it.
That's not true, Professor Krishna's textbook was cited many times by the SCC in tax cases, even Arthur Cockfield's textbook mentioned that several times.
BTW, he is still a practitioner at TaxChambers LLP.
A caution: everyone wants to do well academically and most people will by definition end up being average (B student-ish.) So don't rely on that alone. If you do well, great, but no one knows how they will do until after exams, which is why it's a good idea to start volunteering and doing extra-curriculars early on so you are not just relying on potential grades. (Plus there are other benefits to that.)
@easttowest I'm sure the Toronto market is fairly representative of other large markets in Canada, so thanks. Exchange would be cool, but like you said - I think 3L is a really important time to secure jobs for after school, so I wouldn't want to be overseas unless something is set in stone.
I have a few follow-up questions regarding that 1L summer. Is it frowned upon to not be pursuing a Bay Street job at all by recruiters? When you say "bay street job" are you referring to something law related, or in banking or something else like that? Sounds like these students would just be going after typical internships that would be available to undergraduate students as well? In the summer 2L recruit what kind of skills are these recruiters looking for in you? I'm sure it's best to develop whatever they may be looking for in your 1L summer?
