  1. Feeling of Missing Out on Big Law

  2. Failed the Bar - Which strategies worked for you?

    Ontario bar or BC?
  3. School Rankings by Admission Standards?

  4. RBC's "A & B List Law Schools" Bias

    Odd that UBC would not be considered tier A. I don't think many would dispute its rank as the best (or at least most prestigious, though that doesn't mean much) law school in Western Canada.
  5. Does anyone feel like they're not doing good enough?

    To sort of piggyback...am I the only one who feels like a total moron most of the time/like I have no idea what I am doing? Is this normal?
  6. Victoria Salaries

    I find those numbers surprising as well (higher than I anticipated). Can anyone confirm these numbers are actually in the ballpark?
  7. 3, carry the 9, minus 4.....0. I spent 0 hours during the average week. I was a crammer. Turned out fine. Different strokes for different folks.
  8. UBC vs. Queen's - SOS

  9. 0Ls: do this.

    Take the time off and relax. You'll soon realize that law is one hoop after the next, after the next, after the next (literally: first its undergrad grades, then LSAT seems like your whole world, then grades in school, then getting a job, then passing the bar, then feeling incompetent...). Take the time off, try to relax, enjoy yourself...it may be that last chance you get to do so for quite some time. I think this is the reason a lot of young lawyers burn out, and a lot of lawyers have substance abuse dependencies, they don't take the time needed for self-care. Also, one can definitely get good grades and relax before LS.
  10. Articling vs LPP route? Need advice!

    Avoid law all together, it sucks.
  11. Baker Newby Articling Salary

    Im not sure why one would change the name of the practice when they have 80+ years of goodwill built up in the community. I don't think your analogy is even close to being relevant. Newby/newbie is nothing like having the name ISIS before ISIS 'came out.'
  12. Baker Newby Articling Salary

    A friend of mine was wondering what the current articling salary is at Baker Newby. Does anybody here know?
  13. How do schools contact you that you're accepted?

    Depends. Some schools call, some simply email, and some post online. Some post online and then call, some do a combination of all three. I think all of the schools you mentioned will send an acceptance package via snail mail, but I would be surprised it that is how anyone found out for the first time about their acceptance.
  14. U of A v. U of Sask - Grading Scale?

    2.8 is a b- median. Last I heard, U of A was still curving to a b- for first year.
  15. Failing a student has nothing to do with the costs of the education, and everything to do with the quality of the work they produce. Why should someone get a refund when they fail something? This is one of the more ludicrous things I have seen on this site.
