  1. Suits for Women

    Hello everyone.. I've found this thread helpful up to a point.. but many suggestions on where to get suits are closed down now (Jacob, Mexx, etcetc). I live in a smallish town.. The Bay, RW, and Le Chateau are literally the BEST options for me.. Le Chateau's current suiting options are a literal joke if you ask me. They're all weird cheap materials that are very soft and unstructured looking. Highly overpriced for how informal they are. They're all business casual. Most don't even have actual matching pieces in the same colors. And my Bay store ONLY carries 3 full suits, and they're ALL calvin Klein and don't quite fit me right, past the point of tailoring (i.e. spots like shoulders etc that can't be tailored). My RW store only has 2 full suit options, one of which is grey and too light IMHO. The other is blue but is a 2 tone blue, doesn't seem professional. I bought 3 pieces of it but I'm considering returning.. Thoughts? It fits well. but I'm not convinced its worth the $300 I dropped (hint: If you have CAA they take 15% off). JUST WANT TO EXPRESS MY FRUSTRATION. ARGHHH. Going to be checking out a consignment shop that tends to carry some suiting options, but mostly theyre the bright colored Emily Gilmore old lady social suits that you can't wear in an office I'm considering ordering online. . . Men have it so much easier (in all aspects lets be honest) but with suits especially!!!
  2. How did you pick which LOC?

    Has anyone just submitted an application online through the Scotiabank website for the PSLOC? I just want to take care of this asap, and get in an application. I'll go in and meet/sign etc at a branch later but I'd love to take care of the application asap. It seems that Scotia is the clear winner here on the LOCs.. They ask for your landlord name/number... Is that normal? I've never applied for credit before (other than creditcards).
  3. Next round of acceptances

    Does anyone have any idea how many students they're admitting for 1L 2017?
  4. 0L's - post any questions in here

    Does anyone know of any Kamloops gyms that are set up for olympic lifting? ... definitely not looking for the type of gym where you can't drop weights or use chalk. I need barbells and bumper plates. I need chalk. I really dgaf about any other equipment whatsoever. I'm especially interested in an access card gym where they don't necessarily have it staffed, but you can access it any time by key card, if you know what I mean. Either that or someone's garage gym (Not interested in Crossfit, as I can't afford $150+ a month - love the Crossfit gym I'm at now but I get a smokkkinggg deal that I doubt any other box will want to give me).
  5. Accepted to TRU 2017

  7. 0L's - post any questions in here

    Question about the commitment fee / deposit ... Any idea why only $400 of the $500 fee goes to tuition? Where does that extra $100 go ....
  8. Accepted to TRU 2017

    Yes, I was emailed and Sharee said there is a letter in the mail as well.
  9. Accepted to TRU 2017

    Offered admission on Tuesday the 18th! LSAT 155, 157 cGPA 3.35 I'll be accepting =)
  10. Former RCMP? or former police.

    Yea I never minded paperwork before. in my 10 years of work experience, I have always had no issue.. It was only until I realized that there are jobs out there without non-stop paperwork that I started thinking the grass might be greener
  11. Waitlisted at Calgary 2017

    I was waitlisted on March 3rd. Devastated... =( Hoping beyond hope that I get an offer soon. Anyone know when the next round of offers expire? I'll be counting down to that day. Lsat 155, 157 cGPA 3.35 L2 3.35 ECs - 10 years of work and volunteer experience, mostly in sales. I'm accepted at Lakehead and Windsor but I want Calgary (or even TRU). Sending positive vibes out to everyone else waiting! (sire note: When I went for a tour of the law school, my tour guide told me that a couple of people she knew were offered admission in August right before school started. YIKES!. Didn't really think that happened IRL).

    On a related note, I bought an official real and true LSAC published Official Lsat test (I forget which #).. I bought the eBook version, it was like $5 on sale on Kobo ... I figured I'd just convert the ebook to a PDF and print it so I'd have a hard copy . WOW nope, huge pain in the ass and still didn't turn out right at all, printed super wonky. Ended up just buying the hard copy. Fml ... And I'm not sure who is behind these boards now that it is 2017, but whoever it is.... Thank you. They have been incredibly useful. Actually they've been my biggest resource in school research.. Most everything else out there is all PR nonsense put out by the schools themselves. So THANK YOU to all the Mods and everyone.
  13. Former RCMP? or former police.

    Any former RCMP members who are currently applying to law school / in law school / are now lawyers? I'm curious about your perspective on each career... If you're just applying to law school - what made you decide to apply? Why did you leave the RCMP? Are you just taking leave from RCMP for school, or did you leave the service and don't plan on returning? I ask because I've applied to law schools across the country. Then I applied to the RCMP a month ago and sent in my Selection package.. And now I'm questioning everything! I know that getting invited to depot can take anywhere from 6 months (some very optimistic members gave this estimate.. i'll believe that when I see it) to 2 years.. Or it may never even happen for me. So I'll be accepting an offer at a school for the fall and I'll start law school. I'll cross the bridge of deciding between Law vs Policing when I actually come to it (aka have a troop invite in hand!), as I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. But there are moments when I think to myself - I'm insane? For wanting to work nights.. end up who knows where (though I've heard they're improving upon recruits' requests).. for not so great pay (well, maybe a little better as of this recent bump).. and so on. But something keeps tugging me back to policing. Also my current job is more hands on in security / loss prevention, I love it. The paperwork is the worst part for sure, not that there is too much.. 1-3 hours per arrest. But it makes me REALLY realize.. with law, I will literally be a full time paper pusher.. At least with policing there is more of a balance.. So please.. set me straight
  14. Hi there, Prospective student here. I'm wondering what people do for parking around the law building? According to the campus maps, there are no designated student lots near the law building. The Google Maps street view is from 2012 so I can't really rely on the signage in those pictures. In all honesty - is parking a pain in the ass? I previously went to Ottawa U where transport / parking was a huge pain, coupled with brutal weather - and 4 years felt like forever. If I choose to / have to live in the bitter cold again, I'd rather at least have nice easy access to my car and not have to walk 15 minutes each way. Thanks for your help.
  15. "Undergrad Verified" Question

    I'm glad someone else was as paranoid as me. Mine says C as well. Fingers crossed that it just means Complete.
