  10. Hi all, I will be starting at Western Law this September. I understood from speaking with current students that applications for clinics and other extracurriculars are all due pretty early into the semester and that I should have a resume & cover letter ready in advance. I was hoping to get some resume writing guidelines from current students. For example, should it be 1-2 pages, have a statement of objective, be tailored to specific extracurriculars...? Thanks, Akratic

  12. Application Status Information

    Thank you! Your answers are very helpful!
  13. 1. I see lots of people have posted their GPA on the UNB 4.3 scale with and without drops. Have people calculated this themselves or does this information eventually get uploaded online? I see that UNB received my transcript sometime yesterday... will there eventually be a comment or something letting me know the GPA they calculated for me? 2. Will they confirm receipt of my LSAT score on the application site or do I have to call/email? Right now I don't see any heading on the site for this. 3. I submit my application to UNB already without a personal statement and resume because I was hoping to complete and email these things a little bit later (I saw that some people were admit even before they sent these things). Next to the headings for personal statement and resume, it's marked that they were received. Have I made some mistake in submitting my application before completing and submitting these things? I'm too hesitant to actually email the admissions committee about these concerns... but they are serious concerns for me. Any responses from the forum would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  14. Fifth Year of Undergrad

    My first year of undergrad went very poorly, I had some failures, and I ended up with a 52% average My second year of undergrad I was on probation and I only took 4.0 credits but it went better and I ended up with a 74% average My third year I took a full course load of all second year 2200+ courses and I ended up with a 84% average Right now, I would need to do a half credit course over this summer and a full course load next year to have enough credits to graduate. Assuming the upward trend in marks continues, I think I would have a good enough L2/B2 gpa. But will it be a problem that I only had 2 years of university with a full course load? Will it be a problem that I only took second year courses in third year? Would it be better to do a fifth year of undergrad even though I could graduate after 4, just so that I have an additional year with a full course load of fourth year level courses? Any advice regarding my situation would be so helpful. I really don't know how to go about answering these questions. Thanks, Akratic
