  1. Accepted to UNB 2018

    I just declined my offer today, hoping this helps the process go a little bit quicker for someone else!
  2. I received the email on December 1st, I remember distinctly because it was the day before the LSAT. I have yet to hear anything back since, but my prior LSAT scores before my December write were not very competitive so perhaps that is why.
  3. Accepted 2018

    Accepted as of this morning also! AGPA: 3.98/4.5 LSAT: 160 Index Score: 77.55 Also have until March 2nd to accept or decline.
  4. TRU vs Manitoba

    I applied to Manitoba, TRU, Dalhousie, and UNB. Also, thank you!
  5. TRU vs Manitoba

    Yeah, I'll just have to give it all more thought over these coming months before I accept any offers. Thanks for your input.
  6. TRU vs Manitoba

    When I say BC I mean the interior BC region, not Vancouver or Victoria. I would like to work either in a smaller city like Kamloops or Kelowna, or a lesser populated rural area. And yes, I want to conclusively make my decision now which will effect the law school I choose. I have not been to Kamloops but I have travelled throughout southern BC in the Kelowna area. I love the area, it's beautiful. Also I do know in Manitoba there is a shortage of rural lawyers which is something I would like to get into. I am guessing that BC and most other provinces also have this shortage. Also, I would just like to move somewhere with nicer weather than Manitoba. I have zero connections in Kamloops but if I absolutely decide to move there I would make connections when I attend TRU.

    Yeah, when you put it like that it sort of seems like a no brainer. But the question I would ask then, is if it's difficult to secure a job in another province without the collegial relationships you make throughout law school and with a JD from an out of province school? If I decided to move to BC after going to law school at the U of M let's say.

    Thank you for your advice. The one thing I am absolutely certain about is that I do not want to work in a huge city such as Vancouver, Calgary, or Toronto. I also recognize the collegial aspect and the importance of those relationships, which is why I really do need to be sure of my decision. I will definitely start thinking about all of this over the next few months so that I can make the right decision for me.

  10. TRU vs Manitoba

    You have pretty much summed up my own thoughts exactly. Perhaps I'm jumping the gun, but I wanted to start thinking about it earlier than later. Thank you for your input though and if I have any other questions I won't hesitate to PM you.

  12. TRU vs Manitoba

    Hi all, I just received my December LSAT score of 160, and my cGPA is 3.8/4.33. Based on looking at past accepted threads, it is safe to say I will probably soon be accepted to both Manitoba and TRU. I also applied to Dalhousie and UNB, however being a Manitoba resident that has never travelled east of Kenora, I realistically cannot see myself moving to the east coast. This leaves my decision between Manitoba and TRU, and I was hoping to get some additional insight on what school is right for me. A little bit about myself... I was born and raised in rural Manitoba, and attended the U of M for my undergrad, however I see this law school decision as a huge turning point in my life that could go either of two ways. I am attracted towards attending law school at the U of M both because of my familiarity with it, low tuition and travelling costs, and remaining close to family and friends. Manitoba additionally has a very established law program and reputation, which makes it seem like a safe route. However, I have pondered the idea of permanently moving to BC. I also feel that if I attended the U of M I would never leave Manitoba to experience what else is out there, which is not what I want. TRU is attractive to me because it is a gateway out of Manitoba (because lets face it, Manitoba does sort of suck) and I would be very interested in practicing law in the interior BC region following law school. A major con is the higher cost of tuition at TRU, but part of me just wants to ignore the financial aspect of it and just go where I want to. Also, although TRU is a newer school that has faced criticism regarding its reputation, it seems to have been able to overcome that and prove itself as a great place to obtain a legal education. If anyone has attended either of these schools or been in a similar situation, I'd love to hear your opinion on the matter!
  13. Went from a 152 in June, to a 154 in September, to a 160 in December! I can't believe it, but I'm so happy.
  14. I always check LSAT forums following the test because people share info regarding what sections they had and what types of questions were in those sections (without talking specifically about answers). They can narrow down what sections were real and which ones were experimental. The Powerscore and 7Sage forums are the best in my opinion. They're meant to help people decide if they want to cancel their scores, or perhaps to get more validation on how they feel they did.
  15. I feel super relieved too, but now the wait begins for our scores. I agree, I had two LG sections and found them both to be quite tricky. I felt decent about one and bad about the other. Turns out the one I felt worse about was the experimental section so I was happy. As for the LR sections I had the same experience. I breezed through the first and found the second one to take slower to work through, but the second LR section was my fifth so perhaps it was just exhaustion. Overall, I feel good about it but at the same time I don't want to get too confident lol.
