All my numbers are lower than yours and I'm in at Ryerson. My softs and past experience is a lot more diverse though, a lot of student leadership projects, managed a 6 figure budget from the provost of my university as an undergrad planning events, more vast experience in fine arts and in the curatorial field, had my own small business on the side, went full circle and mentored Indigenous youth through this business program that i did in high school, you get the picture.
From what Ive read about applying to law school is they want future leaders who come from diverse backgrounds and life experience that they can contribute their unique lens into discussions. You can bypass all this by having good numbers but if you don't and are relying on your softs, i think you need to be showing actual passion and leadership for things that can be outside of law. Having a part time job during your undergrad isn't impressive (no offence) but is just kind of expected. If you have the money to be applying to every law school in the country i think you'd be better off just improving your LSAT and cracking 160.
Hi I’m an anglophone student and I was accepted! I passed the tfi exam in January but I was called to complete a written exam given by udem. I was accepted 2 weeks ago! So I don’t think they are waiting on the tfi to accept or refuse candidates
While no one likes salary cuts, I think BLG and NRF are taking the high road by rolling back everyone’s pay rather than laying off staff and junior associates in what will be a brutal employment market. The other big players will need to take action soon. Partner distribution cuts will be deep, but won’t be enough to weather this storm past a month or two. Law firm management will want to stick to the line that they are going to keep everyone whole, but the economics of that just don’t make sense. Partner ranks will get unsettled if they are bearing it all. Management is incompetent if they think there is not going to be a serious drop in revenue over the next 6 weeks at least, but in reality, for the balance of the year. Time to reset, even if just temporarily.
