  1. That email is a little disheartening. I didn't realize the articling situation in the Maritimes was at that point.
  2. I actually wasn't able to find out what the average requirements are. I had an A average and it showed up on my academic record near the end of May if I remember right. My grades dropped a fair amount this year though so fingers crossed that it includes those with a B + average But in reality it likely it stops at A-....
  3. Lol they don't announce the prize. I found out through the professor of the class I got the medal in last year but I think students are also notified by the dean. You don't get much out of it tbh. Just something to add to your resume and short lived boost to your ego. *Edit: opps, to answer the original question it as mid June
  4. I almost feel worse now that I can't take both. But I have an extra timbit, I can chose to do both classes OR do a trial practice class. In your opinions, would taking tax and admin be preferable even given that I plan to do at least some criminal work?
  5. Due to some bad scheduling on my part I'll only be able to take taxation or administrative law next year. I'm articling with a firm that does general practice and I'm currently leaning towards towards wanting to do criminal, family and general litigation, but I have a business background (and have taken courses in tax accounting already) and I know my interests might change once I actually get out and start working. I'm curious whether anyone has advice on which of these courses is more useful/benecial take. Ie. If you could only take one, which would it be? Thanks in advance for the advice.
  6. Meh, there's summer, fall and winter semesters at the legal aid clinic so more like 30ish students get to participate. There's also a criminal clinic and court placements. But all of this information is easily accessible on the Dal website......
  7. I don't have a comment on your overall question but I'm curious where you found that placement data about UofA. Ive been asking around trying to find the information for my school but with no luck.
  8. With respect I've never understood the argument in favour of UNB, that because it has less classes to chose from it somehow better teaches you the fundamentals of law. This problem (if it is one) can easily be remedied by your course selection choices at Dal. At Dal your also have a large selection of these fundamental courses (ie. You can take evidence, admin, ect in either fall or winter) which makes it easier to fit in all the "fundamental" courses you might need. Mind you, UNB might have these options as well, I'm not up to date on their course offerings. Regarding work, I'd say it depends where you want to go. If it's NS, I'd say go to Dal. All you need to do is look at the recent hires at pretty much any NS firm with available info and the majority of hires are from Dal (with a few mixings of UNB and Ontario graduates). Outside of NS but in the Atlantic provinces UNB might be better given the reduced cost. Anyway, just my 2 cents.
  9. Or in other words....
  10. Maybe try becoming a flight attendant. You'll be helping people everyday while traveling around the world!
  11. I share the same name as a convicted offender who got some publicity in my province. Didn't hurt too much.
  12. I wouldn't worry to much about Domus (or the drinking culture at Dal) if that's not your thing. There's an equal amount of people who chose not to participate in Domus or only go on a few special occasions. Everyone has their interests. The school seems to use Domus as a selling tool for Dal and it's "collegial atmosphere" and I'm sure it works for some potential students. But rest assured that if getting blackout every Thursday isn't your cup of tea (at all or if you prefer your monthly blackouts instead) there are plenty of other things to do at Dal where you'll meet cool folks.
  13. I'm curious what gave you this vibe?
  14. Amen
  15. I was just thinking about this the other day. What I would have done is: • Looked into teeth whitening (I started using Crest White strips way too late in the game for it to have made a noticable difference) • Committed to a solid workout routine • Committed to a solid diet (possibly South Beach, maybe even Atkins) • Learned more jokes/brushed up on my anecdotal stories for small talk • Watched the movie "Presumed Innocent", from what my friends told me this movie really helped them understand the process. Sadly I only had enough time to watch Season 1 of Suits before the OCI's started. Anyways, those are just a few the things that in retrospect I wish I'd taken care of before the process. I'm sure my fellow posters will generally agree and elaborate on some points.
