Hello! I'm looking to apply to Osgoode this cycle, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts/insight into how important reference letters were to your application?

As background, my current stats are: CGPA- 3.97, L2/B2- 3.98, LSAT- 165.

I have decent ECs but I only have one good reference from an employer as of now, but not one from a prof (Covid made it hard to forge connections during the prime time of 2nd/3rd year... but I suppose that's just an excuse)...

Any input would be much appreciated !!

I would ask professors anyways. They write a lot of references, and I've heard of profs writing letters for students who assumed they'd forgotten them during Zoom

Thanks! Would you say my application would be weakened by the fact that the prof may not know me at a personal level/not a long period of time?

You've got impressive stats. I'd say you will likely get in both Oz and UofT. Ask your prof anyways as long as you get an A from their class. The academic reference letter focuses mostly on your ability to learn. The fact that your prof doesn't know you well in person shouldnt be a big problem.
