  1. Thanks for that! I actually didn't realize that the paper application was due instead of the online - must have overlooked the part!
  2. Does anyone have any useful information re: transferring. It wasn't something I was seriously considering until a few days ago. Currently at USask (& loving it), but I want to be closer to my GF, friends, and family, so I want to try and transfer to UAlberta. Anyone have any useful hints/perspective into the experience?
  3. NO. I thought I was too old to go back to law school (just turned 25 - I know, what a dumb thought), but 2/3 lawyers at the firm I was working for went back really late. My boss told me he went back to law school when he was 36 - and now he's widely successful and owns his own law firm. It's never too late especially if this is something that you really want!
  4. Wahoooo!!! Congrats!
  5. I went with Sask thanks everyone!
  6. I do have that nagging feeling in my gut that the proximity is a massive determinant! I'll have to make a pro/con list.
  7. The deadline to accept is August 15th. I believe that I will be, but I am fully committed to TRU at the moment, so I'm going to make a decision this weekend. I'll update the forum either way!
  8. Could you maybe divulge why?
  9. Hi, I was just accepted off the waitlist for Sask. Can someone please outline the benefits to each school? At this point, I'm potentially want to move back to Alberta to practice law, so I recognize that might be easier to do if I attend Sask? Personal Pros to Sask: 5 Hour drive from home Lower Tuition Peronal Pros to TRU: BC living Smaller/newer School Already have accommodations set up Personal Cons to TRU: Higher Tuition 8/9 Hour drive from home
  10. Accepted off the Wailist! cGPA: 3.3 L2: 3.67 ish LSAT: 159
  11. Agreed!!
  12. I never thought it was for me, but I started working a 9-5 job at a law firm when I finished my undergrad. I worked here for about a year when my boss said we could all watch a jury verdict for one of his criminal clients. I knew I wanted to be a lawyer when I watched his client's face/reaction when the jury told him he was not guilty (prison for 10+ years vs freedom). The fact that lawyers change people's lives in such a drastic way and can help them SO much really did it for me.
  13. Thanks for your advice I definitely will pick up the book!
  14. Hi, I signed up for Larry Law Law after my time prepping for the LSAT with 7Sage. I recently received an e-mail about prepraring for lawschool in advance and how it's really important to have the 'issue spotting' skill. I read over the e-mail & the corresponding link, and it all seems very useful. It would be about 1-2 hours of work a day or so, and I wouldn't mind doing it. I was wondering if anyone else has taken this course or is in the process of doing so. Was it/is it worth it? I've written on here before about pre-law school work and most people said to just take the summer to relax, which I have been, but I was wondering if there is any value in getting a head start with building the skill sets required in school. Thanks Link:
  15. The last time I looked it up (about 5 years ago) that was the case. It appears you can spend 79.99 for a 1 year subscription, unless you're a student.... in which it's $79.99 for 4 years.
