check michigan fee waiver. Michigan is one of the most underrated schools in the USnews. 3 supreme court justice alums, top 5 alum in pretty much everything... and ranked #9? Michigan should at least share shoulders with Chicago and NYU
You guys are sounding like it's guaranteed that he/she will do better...which, statistically speaking, not a safe bet. I would suggest focusing on the personal statmeents, cuz unlike what a lot of people here say, it counts a lot!

The common understanding is that admission to canadian UG are not by any means competitive (compared to the U.S.), and thus if you don't have a really good GPA, it will likely have an adverse effect on your app, even if you go to one of the "prestigious ones." One of my frieds went to UT, did really well and a really good LSAT (172), and didn't crack top 5.

Is it possible to submit both a DS and a why penn essay to Penn? Michigan gives 2 optional essay, but penn's instruction says "one of the optional essays" Any thoughts? Penn also doesn't respond to emails?

Agreed with other applicants. Apply when you are at your best.
For UM, defer admission is much more difficult than regular admission. Also, if you just apply regular and try to defer a year, you might not get a year long deferral.

maybe the law schools have finally realized that giving out fee waivers blurs the people who actually want to go to their school / people who just apply cuz it's free...but then again, it's kinda like expectaions in facing inflation and raising interest rates (any econ people here? haha). once you pop, you cant stop. i expect a lot of waivers to go out end of this month

if you read ivey's guide, it says absolutely limit resume to 1 page unless there are real important publications. Adcoms are experts, and if they're not noteworthy presentations, awards, etc. it could have the effect of making your thing seem like a filler.
Yes, there is some truth to this. Law schools know what their strong progrmas are, so unless you actually get someone that knows the law school well, it's not likely to have much of an impact. Also, if you are pondering rather to give your recommendor extra letters to write, the other thing to weigh is the risk of undermining the quality of the general letter.
