  2. Is a 150 LSAT enough for TRU?

    True yeah. I dont know the OPs stats, I'm just saying it has happened. The other guy said definitely not.

    I've seen people get in with 148

    Got the same email, stats are in my previous posts. Also waitlisted @ TRU.
  5. 1L book costs?

    Good advice. Alright, I guess I'll plug in 1k to be on the safe side and see if they pay that out.
  6. 1L book costs?

    How much does a 1L typically fork out on books for the year? I'm applying for student loans for the first time and have no idea what sort of expected costs on books I should be plugging into my application.
  7. Summer before Lawschool?

    I'm going on a big adventure from southern Mexico down to Nicaragua.
  8. Accepted to UNB 2018

  9. Accepted to UNB 2018

    I can hardly believe that I finally get to post in one of these threads. Its been a 10 year journey with a lot of struggle and sacrifice. Accepted! Cgpa:3.0something, no idea on the adjusted gpa - the early portion of my transcript is kind of a wreck. 152 LSAT and an MA. I am assuming that they considered me mature/discretionary because I don't think I had enough drops to make up for a poor performance in my first attempt at undergrad.

    I agree with what you're saying but the thing is that they should not be self imposing deadlines on themselves and giving applicants a timeline of expectation if they are not going to be able to keep to the timetable. The frustration that is being displayed on the boards is a direct result of that I would reckon.

    They would have to pickup their phone for you to demand an answer, which seems like a tall order.
  12. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Yeah... same. I'm just going to choose to ignore the email at this point and assume the next intake is going to be a day or so after the 16th deadline.

    da fuq? I must have totally misunderstood what they meant by that mass email they sent out
  14. Switched Programs + Transfer Credits = CGPA?

    I didn't bother with cgpa schools. I've applied and I'm still waiting. I don't know how helpful my advice would be, but I chose not to talk about that era in my personal statement because it was awhile ago. I have a masters, international work experience and the last few years of my undergrad (once I switched to the arts faculty) are in the 3.6-3.7 range. I figure that stuff speaks for itself in regards to my ability. Not sure what the best way to handle personal statements would be if you're coming fresh out of undergrad, to be honest. I think it's better to focus on strengths and relate your personal/work experiences to why law/why law school x would be a good fit rather than to explain away a bad year.
