  1. Update: I emailed a Scotiabank rep and they immediately offered me 125k at prime. I am going to UCalgary law just in case anyone was wondering about the rates you can get with different schools
  2. Crowsnest/ Apartment

    They're bought on a per semester basis. The costs depends on which lot you're looking at http://www.ucalgary.ca/parking/parkingpermits
  3. Hi all, I recently heard bank from RBC (the bank my accounts are currently with) and I was offered a PSLOC with a limit of 75k and a rate of Prime+0.5%. I was not overly impressed with this offer, so I was just wondering what offers you were able to secure with your other banks. Thanks in advance!
  4. I am 21 and am accepted
  5. Dean's open house

    The invite said "smart casual" so a suit and tie might be a little more formal than that. Look nice, but I definitely don't think a suit is necessary (I won't be wearing one).
  6. Entrance Awards?

    Yea I'd imagine they're gonna wait until right near the end of the month to release them, since that's when the deadline to accept is
  7. Dean's open house

    Well the description says that it includes a tour, info session and then its followed by a mixer with other admitted students and faculty. That seems like plenty to fill 3 hours to me.
  8. How Long Were You Green Circled?

    I was about 5 days from green circle to acceptance I think.
  9. I received offers from both and I'm going to UofC
  10. I purposely build a victory lap last semester because I knew it would happen. So my give-a-shit level is dropping, but its still high enough to breeze through these easy courses.
  11. For me this is a big part of why I want to move out. I sort of have the opposite parent situation that you have, I have don't have a good relationship with them in the sense that I disagree with them socially on basically every issue, and I have no respect for my father particularly for many things he's done in my life. This leads to constant fighting wherein my father will threaten to kick me out on the street. Being so far away from the school is another important issue, I hate being at home so I tend to do most of my studying at the library. After a long night of studying I hardly feel like commuting home for an hour, where upon getting home I get interrogated by my parents because "there's no way that I was at the library all that time". I feel like being so far away from the school would also hamper my ability to make important connections in law school. Since law school is a relatively small faculty, building a network of connections in school with people that will be my future colleagues, I think, would be very valuable to me. Having to commute so far to get home to a place where there's no transit access would likely mean me skipping out on many socialising opportunities. Lastly, as I've mentioned, I am in quite a serious relationship and she also lives quite close to the university so moving closer would save a long commute for both of us multiple times per week. For those that have wondered why we don't simply move in together, she is from a rather traditional family, and they would be quite disappointed if we lived together before we are, at least, engaged. Also, since this seems to be somewhat of a salient point in this thread, I am 22 years old.
  12. I currently am in a serious relationship and she lives very close to the university, so I'd be saving travel time there as well.
  13. Would you care to elaborate? From seeing you post over my time on the site you seem to be a pretty rational person so I'd love to hear what your reasoning is.
  14. Hello, I am just completing my undergrad at UCalgary and I am staying here for law school as well. I have yet to move out from my parents place but I am considering it as I go into law school. Currently I live just outside of Calgary and my commute is 45-60 minutes one way (90 minutes if I take transit). I also do not have a great relationship with my parents and I am itching to get some distance from that. I am also worried that I'll miss out on important social aspects of law school by being so far away from campus. I would love your opinions regarding whether the reduced commute/independence/ better social experience is worth the additional financial burden that comes with living on my own.
  15. Accepted to Calgary 2018

    Hey y'all, all of my classes were cancelled today due to the mythological amount of snow currently falling in Calgary. So I went ahead and created a facebook group for the class of 2021 instead of doing anything remotely productive. https://www.facebook.com/groups/158593111465914/
