  1. Junior associate $20 an hour???

    I by no means expect law school to guarantee a super high salary. As you've said, it can happen, but not unless you work extremely hard and are willing to sacrifice. Nevertheless, I thought it was low considering the amount of education, etc. being a junior associate entails. I acknowledged, however, that I've never compared junior associate wages myself so am not sure what the "norm" in terms of wages go.

    What are your stats? (I'm applying next cycle)
  3. Junior associate $20 an hour???

    That seems...low? I'm not sure as I haven't even gone to law school yet and so have not looked at similar offerings. But I make slightly over $20 an hour at my part-time job as an undergraduate student without a completed Bachelor's degree yet so...
  4. Hi all, I'm wondering what supporting docs. would look like for discretionary applicants in the case of a non-medical reason? It's pretty clear-cut what kind of documentation would be used to back up medical reasons but I'm not too sure about other, perhaps way more personal, cases. I'd prefer not to go into too much detail about my own personal circumstances, but it is related to family issues incl. a divorce. I'm possibly open to answering questions if it helps to elaborate on my question. Thanks very much in advance.
  5. Index for automatic admission

    Does anyone know how repeated courses fit into your total accumulated credits/units? Do they include the units from both attempts or is the worse attempt essentially erased off completely and replaced by the better attempt?

    Awesome, congrats! Also, this makes me super happy haha (my stats are pretty much identical to yours and I'll be applying for next cycle)
  7. Chances? (LSAT 162, L90 3.6)

    Thank you very much for your reply! This definitely gives me some peace of mind as I'll be applying for next year's cycle
  8. I'm wondering about repeated courses in your undergrad and how this works with the L90 credits that TRU looks at. I took the intro course for Psychology (my major) at my university in my first semester but basically screwed around and did very minimal studying. I'm considering retaking this course now in my last year of my undergrad since it would be super easy and low-level for me and I would obviously take it more seriously. I just wanted to know if TRU would consider this as part of my L90, rather than considering it as just taking the place of those first credits in my first semester. (Hope this makes sense). Would like to know so I don't waste time/money on retaking a course I wouldn't otherwise need to. Help please!!
  9. Hey everyone, just wondering what my chances are for admission into TRU. LSAT score is 162 and while I'm not quite finished my undergrad degree yet, I'd estimate that my L90 turns out to be ~3.5 or ~3.6. ECs - volunteer at a crisis line, work as an outreach worker for a society which works to help individuals with mental illness/substance misuse/involvement with the justice system, etc. reintegrate into society, find employment, housing, etc. Various research assistant positions at my university, volunteered at a summer camp for kids with autism for two summers, helped organize a fundraiser. Additionally, have worked various jobs throughout my whole undergrad. Any input is greatly appreciated :). Thanks guys.
