  1. Accepted to Calgary 2018

    From what I've heard its usually just an ambitious 0L
  2. Accepted to Alberta 2018

    Got the email this afternoon! L2: 3.82 LSAT: 164 I will be declining in favour of UCalgary, good look to those still waiting!
  3. Factors Other Than CGPA/LSAT?

    This does nothing to prove the relative difficulty of different programs. And even if it did, you're neglecting the possibility that intelligent people go into "less difficult" programs. The smart people don't funnel to engineering just because people deem it to be difficult, people study what interests them. We don't live in a Aldous Huxley book, people aren't assigned to any one field of study based on their intelligence. For this reason, intelligence exists in all disciplines and subsequently AdComs would be ignorant to favour certain applicants based on their field of study.
  4. Rejected From Calgary 2018

    These are very good points. Also I think its safe to assume that if Calgary used an index system similar to UofA then their medians would be almost identical. Its not that Calgary has a less competitive applicant pool, its that they select people from largely the same pool as UofA based on a different set of factors. Therefore the strength of Calgary's incoming class is harder to quantify and thus looks weaker.
  5. Factors Other Than CGPA/LSAT?

    This is quite an erroneous statement. Courses are not objectively hard or easy, the difficulty of a course has to do with the unique abilities, leaning style, etc. of the person taking it. I guarantee that an engineer would fail my honours political science seminar, just as I'm sure I would fail a thermodynamics class. Your claim is one that is begging for a pissing contest, for which is there is no basis.
  6. Accepted to Calgary 2018

    Just got the email! L2: 3.82 LSAT 164 Calgary is my first choice so I'll likely be accepting!
  7. I am a political science major, but as said above study what makes you happy, not what you think looks good on a law school application.
  8. I believe its all electronic, there was nothing in the online admission package that said anything about a hard copy.
  9. Taking notes by hand

    Thanks everyone! This has been really helpful. I think I'll stick with my handwritten notes in class, at least at first, and then go from there.
  10. Taking notes by hand

    Hey all, I normally take notes w/ a pen and paper, it just helps me process the information better. However, I'm sure that law school is quite content heavy and I'm wondering if this will put me at a disadvantage in terms of getting all of the information I need. Also, is it completely necessary to type final exams in law school?
  11. Accepted to Alberta 2018

    Are any of you still taking courses right now?
  12. I'm in the same boat. From what I've heard you basically just need to graduate. However, given that you have a 3.89 GPA it seems unlikely to me that you're going to just throw away your last semester of school because the pressure is off. Finish your degree strong, but don't be stressed that they're gonna pull their offer if you don't get straight As next semester. Also, congrats!
  13. Accepted to UVic 2018

    I just got the call too! GPA: 3.92 (after drops) LSAT: 164 Good luck to everyone else thats still waiting!
  14. I applied to Vic, UBC, Alberta, and Calgary. Going into the application process I was fairly sure that I wanted to stay in western Canada, seeing the OLSAS application system solidified that for me. Besides, I was confident in my ability to get into at least one of these schools.
  15. Suits for law school

    Hey all, I've recently been admitted and I know law school entails some networking events and whatnot. I only have one suit and I am wondering if you guys think I'll want to invest in a couple more decent suits for next fall. Thanks in advance!
