The group has actually been created by the admissions office already, you should receive an invitation via email at some point!

FYI the admissions group generally isn’t the main group, no one really posts much on it in recent years cause it’s monitored by adcomm.

Yeah IIRC way back in the day, the admin-controlled group used to be the only student FB group, but one year the students decided they wanted more privacy away from admin presence, so a student-controlled FB group was created and became the main hub of information and activities.

That said, when I was in 1L a professor did go to the admin-controlled group to post about a summer job opportunity which was not cross-posted to the student-controlled group, and that remains the only memory I have of the admin-controlled group having unique informational value since I started law school.

For those of you who are 1Ls and up, was the admin-controlled group useful in introducing you to others? ie. were you then able to find some people on Facebook/Instagram and connect with them?

Not super useful, they had some v awkward conversation prompts which no one engaged with. Connected with a few classmates as a result of the group, but the SLS group is really where people started to open up.

I think the issue with the Facebook group is that there are too many people to make any meaningful connections. You'll meet people during orientation week, legal methods, small group, clubs, etc.

Does anyone know if a U of T accepted Facebook group has been created yet?:)

Hey, just a bit confused as to why you made the exact same post in the Osgoode thread...

PM'd! Just deciding between the two:)

If I remember correctly, you only get invited to the group when you accept your offer.

Nope. Just checked my email from last year. I got an email from the admissions committee with the facebook group link the day after I'd been admitted, many months before I accepted my offer.

    • What even is a "good" lawyer? How can we deliberate over if "good" lawyers are born or made, if even within legal academia, the model of what a "good " lawyer is, is still actively being explored and contested. The answer truly depends on who you ask. 
    • Yeah, North America in 2021, what an awful place to be. Get some perspective for fuck’s sake. You remind me of the guys that work in construction and think safety should be treated as an afterthought. Have you ever considered  why you have the ability to express yourself so freely whereas elsewhere you wouldn’t? 
    • I don't know why I'm continuing to engage, but fuck it.  You were mocked (correctly) for making some very strange claims about genetics. I understand why you would take issue with that. No one likes to be mocked. But are non-lawyers being mocked here? I don't think so. I think it's just an objective assessment that lawyers do tend to have the qualities normally associated with intelligence.  I think that many lawyers are more intelligent than the average person. But that's not a value judgment. The particular kind of intelligence needed for law is valuable for practicing law effectively. But outside of being useful for practice, I accord it very little weight. I like and admire many people who aren't especially good communicators, and probably don't have the attention to detail for law. I know many lawyers who are very smart and excellent at lawyering, but who I do not particularly like or admire. Intelligence is just one thing. There are other qualities that are far more important. I care far more about a person's compassion, sense of humour, and self-awareness than whether they can write a persuasive brief. So when I say that law isn't a good fit for most, I don't mean it as smug or an insult. I just mean that law isn't a good fit for everyone. 
    • yo man relax. who hurt u? You might think we're insulting you, but your manner of speaking is very condescending. The fact that you posted and deleted comments (twice!) suggests that you know this, so stop pretending like everyone is 'taking a dump' on you. On topic: there's smart and not-so-smart people in every profession. In the case of law, medicine or PhD-level scientific academia, the floor is likely higher since you had to jump through some hoops to get there that are somewhat reliable indices of some intellectual capacity. Maybe everyone could theoretically be trained as a lawyer or doctor, but you'd probably have some pretty bad ones by the end.
    • You got there pretty early, then. I needed to collect a few STEM degrees and see how many of my peers ended up getting jobs where all they did was mix buffers and run assays that come in a box that are closer to following a basic recipe than developing an mRNA based vaccine. Fortunately, the inherent superiority of their biochem degrees and the fact that they had to learn electrochem material that they probably haven't thought about since halfway through undergrad continue to provide solace.
