  1. Law School Chances - What should I do?? Help

    What a great post! Heartfelt congrats on getting into law school. This is an excellent example of how hard work and a lot of motivation can get you your dreams. To the OP, I'm sorry for the negativity and for your hardships. It might help to remember that most people are not so open about their difficulties on this forum, for privacy's sake or other reasons. Some of us have lived through terrible trauma and tragedy as well. If I could give you one piece of motivating advice, it would be this: you are stronger for what you have been through -- rejection from law school is nothing compared to what you've already overcome! If you want it, you can wait another year, truly apply yourself to the LSAT and ace it, and start law school on your own terms. I think when you come back to this forum next year with your good news, you'll realize that the extra year was necessary. In the mean time, why not make a plan for the year? Do some things you've been putting off, since you'll be very busy once school starts. Don't you dare lose hope.
  2. "University Magazine" Law School Rankings

    Has since been deleted, so take from that what you will
  3. Accepted to UVic 2018

    It took a couple of weeks for me! They emailed me to confirm my acceptance long before it showed up in the system.

    Yawn. Author did not even go to school in Canada.
  5. Accepted to UVic 2018

    For those who have accepted -- did you get a confirmation email that they have received your acceptance and the deposit?? Would help to know!
  6. July 2018 LSAT

    You can email LSAC for general info but they can't let you know an exact date, time or location until it is officially announced - on the website. Keep checking there.
  7. Environmental Law Centre clinic

    Thanks you two, PM'd you!
  8. I was wondering if anyone has experience with the Environmental Law Centre clinic at UVic and would be willing to talk about it?
  9. As I am deciding which law school to attend (between UVic and UBC), I'd like some experience from UBC students, in particular if you're doing the Specialization in Environmental and Natural Resource Law. I noticed there is no clinic for environmental law... is it possible to otherwise get practical ("experiential") experience during your time at UBC?
  10. I concur with the other posts. Definitely read a nice textbook on the basics of LG and then use 7sage (especially their "fool-proof method") to practise, practise, practise. BTW, old textbooks for LG are just fine.
  11. is 30 too old to start law school?

    That's the key! We all come into our own in our own time. 30 is the right age for you, so don't worry about anyone else.
  12. Accepted to UVic 2018

    So happy to have been accepted! GPA 86% LSAT 167 Good luck!
  13. Offer came in yesterday! LSAT: 167 GPA: 86% after drops. I miscalculated and thought it was 80%. Awaiting UVic's decision. Good luck all!
  14. I worked full time and just used every free moment to study. Wrote 163 for my first attempt and 167 for the second. You do not need to study full time. Make a plan for every week, be strict and dedicated, and it'll be fine.
  15. I agree and think your point is completely legitimate. I just meant if one can avoid taking out a loan entirely, i.e. leaving law school debt-free, that is preferable in my eyes. Since I grew up with particular money-related values, it was important to save for law school and not go into debt, and that has relieved me of a lot of stress.
