Upper Year Summaries

Recommended Posts

Do any Western Law students know where I can find upper year summaries? I'm particularly looking for Income Tax with MacArthur and IP with Awad. Thank you!

The SLS has a handful of them on their new-ish summary drive webpage but it's certainly lacking. Doesn't even say, in many cases, what year/prof the summary was made for. But you might find something to get you through in the meantime.

Yeah I checked those, there aren't any summaries for any of my classes except Ethics so I was hoping someone here had a Dropbox link or something. But thank you, I'll keep looking! 😊

    • Which schools did you apply last two cycles?
    • Good that you scored 166 without a private tutor. I gave my high school classmate all my LSAT materials and he got 178 without taking any LSAT course nor tutor.  Every person is different. 
    • The problem with the whole "get a job and build up savings" approach is that few people will make enough to offset the lost income they would have gained by starting their professional careers a year earlier. The math doesn't work for everyone (some people have trouble finding decent jobs post-law school), but for professional careers I would suggest it's usually a bad idea to "work to save up money" unless interest rates are sky-high, or you have a fantastic pre-professional job.  Let's do some simple math (using Vancouver because UVic). Let's assume living costs are constant for both scenarios to not make the math fuzzy and only focus on net (which will be inaccurate I understand since expenses do matter).  Graduate with degree and get a job. The median BC Uni grad makes 50K two years out (probably less 1 year out, but we'll use 50K: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/university-grads-earn-50k-median-salary-2-years-out-of-school-study-1.2680816. So they enter at +50K, then they only need some loans, some would be government loans as well, so no interest while in-school, but let's keep this simple and assume it's all on a prime PSLOC, taken out at the beginning of the year (Again, many assumptions and shortcuts here). You start with a buffer and eat into it as school goes on, eventually going red.   Get into law school, spend the same money on living expenses (so we'll ignore those to simplify things, so the numbers below will seem very large), use the PSLOC (for argument's sake).  Assume no career progression at all, just the lowest value for a 1st year Vancouver small practice lawyer according to https://www.zsa.ca/salary-guide/ (which is unfair to the K-JD who would be moving up faster, theoretically). And we have: In this scenario the "work pre-law for a year" person needs to make 74K to balance out the K-JD, and that's in one year out of uni. Unless you spend manage a great job out of uni (some do) the more years spent working pre-law the more years the K-JD has to find their groove and start moving up.  Again, there are so many assumptions baked into this it's a fanciful scenario (down to the ages of the people!) but I think it's worth noting this. Obviously debt tolerance plays into this, I'm not looking forward to going into six-figure debt for my future career, but I know there's significantly more money than I would have otherwise made on the other side, making that debt a fantastic investment in the long-term.    Age Work Net Work Income Work School Costs Debt-Servicing Costs K-JD Net K-JD Income K-JD School Costs Debt-Servicing Costs Graduate Uni 20 $0.00 0 0   $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00   21 $50,000.00 $50,000.00 0   -$20,000.00 $0.00 -$20,000.00 -$490.00   22 $30,000.00 0 -$20,000.00 $735.00 -$40,490.00 $0.00 -$20,000.00 -$992.01   23 $10,000.00 0 -$20,000.00 -$245.00 -$61,482.01 $0.00 -$20,000.00 -$1,506.31   24 -$10,000.00 $0.00 -$20,000.00 $245.00 -$22,988.31 $40,000.00 $0.00 -$563.21   25 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 $0.00 -$735.00 $54,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     26 $108,000.00 $78,000.00 $0.00   $132,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     27 $186,000.00 $78,000.00 $0.00   $210,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     28 $264,000.00 $78,000.00 $0.00   $288,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     29 $342,000.00 $78,000.00 $0.00   $366,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     30 $420,000.00 $78,000.00 $0.00   $444,448.47 $78,000.00 $0.00     EDIT.

    • No 100% for OZ, Western and Queens Windsor- hard to predict Ryerson- well, you have enough offers
    • My stats are 3.92 OLSAS cGPA and 162. I’m a third year applicant hoping to get into Osgoode, Western, Queens, Windsor or Ryerson. Should I try retaking my LSAT to try and get a higher score to maximize my chances of acceptance?
