I was going to leave this being the first to just leave a "confused" rating because I didn't feel it warranted anything more than that, but since you've doubled down and this thread has devolved to the point where I can't derail it any more than it already has been...
The idea that "elite" undergraduate programs and internships are full of disadvantaged students and community colleges are full of privileged rich kids who take fluff courses and don't have to work is just bizarre, even to the point of standing out for that quality in a thread full of people making weird claims. That's why it comes across as sour grapes.
There's a legitimate argument to be made about the relative difficulty of different undergraduate programs and the "fairness" of treating them equally in law school admissions. Lord knows it's been hashed out over and over here (and frankly that's largely what the LSAT is for). But this is the worst argument on the subject I've seen yet.
Sorry I misread one of your posts, you're a 1L. Big accomplishment, I wish I could relate. Certainly gives you authoritative views on admissions committees, "bro".
Yeah one school as an example and the tougher one to get into in Alberta - and I only picked that specific LSAT range. They let in 8% of their class with a 3.5. And yeah no shit you need a top 15% LSAT, are you now saying your friend should both shit the bed in school and on the LSAT and still get admitted despite not having any additional factors besides "went to an engineering program"? Come on "bro", that's asinine.
Western's mean cumulative GPA is 3.5 with a mean LSAT of 161. https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/jd_admissions/class_profiles.html
Queen's best two years average is 3.73 with an average LSAT score of 160.
Ottawa asks for an A average and above a 157.
Winsdor doesn't even post stats as far as I can tell because they shit all over GPA and LSAT in their admissions criteria FAQ.
Your friend is just a born loser if they gave up without even attempting the LSAT just because they had a 3.5.
I'm a new user here, but have been a long-time lurker! I was able to land a few in-firm interviews with bay st. firms, but I'm extremely new to the process, and was hoping to get some insights as to what to expect in terms of procedure.
So, obviously I've been through the OCIs, and I'm now at the in-firm stage. I heard that most (if not all) firms have some sort of social events as part of their in-firm assessment - e.g. dinners, lunches, breakfast, coffee - but seeing how everything is done virtually this year, I'm curious if there's a virtual equivalent for those social events.
Also, how many more interviews can I expect after the Tuesday in-firm one? Assuming I do end up acing the interview on Tuesday (speaking things into existence!!!), will my next interview happen on Wednesday or Thursday, or both?
Thanks in advance!
