  1. I have seen a lot of individuals be warned against attending law school, how the legal profession is often not what people expect it to be, etc. This has me wondering, what type of person SHOULD pursue law? What aspects of the profession will appeal to certain individuals? Or maybe, are there individuals with certain characteristics/interests who should NOT pursue law? I understand it would be difficult to generalize and that there are many different legal fields, but I’m really just wondering which types of people (e.g. with particular traits/interests) would have higher chances of thriving in law school and dealing with the law.
  2. Particularly for UBC, I know that "decisions are made on a rolling basis beginning in late November" but would writing the LSAT this November still be relatively acceptable or would I be at an extreme disadvantage compared to others who wrote the LSAT earlier? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just want to make sure I'm not making a poor decision.
  3. A bit of a weird question but I am in the process of switching fields and don't really want to provide contact information for individuals who don't know I'm pursuing law yet. I know references aren't needed, but does UBC require contact information for any verifiers or contacts (similar to OLSAS)?
  4. I'm close to graduating undergrad, and I've essentially had no experience with the legal field apart from what I've spent time reading about it. I don't have any tangible experiences so I'm not really sure what a career as a lawyer would entail. How would I go about gaining this experience, or any sort of experience that would help me understand if I should pursue law? Where/what should I be looking for? I was pretty set on medicine just because I never really explored other options, and although I have the stats to make that path possible, I can't see myself happily pursuing it. I just feel as if I am more interested in aspects of the law/this type of work and was wondering how I could determine if this is something I would really want to pursue before suddenly making the switch. Of course, I know the LSAT is a place to start but I was also wondering about how to learn more about the profession as well.
