I just got the email.

 

Stats are 79% best two and 161 lsat. I have been working at a law firm for the past eight months. My references came from one of the lawyers at the firm and two professors.

 

I am a Sask residence and completed my bachelor degree this last fall.

Hi all,

 

I might have asked this question last cycle but I honestly do not remember the answer. Does TRU look at discretionary applicants later in the cycle or at the same time as everyone else?

 

Thanks!

Accepted today

L90: 3.51

LSAT: 162

 

Leaning towards accepting but want to hear from other schools. TRU wants an answer in a week. I supposed if I accept and pay the $200 deposit then end up deciding to go somewhere else instead, I can just withdraw my acceptance and lose the $200?

Ugly dog Im wondering the same thing. Iv been waitlisted at a few other schools, and havent heard back from many others. I want to hold my seat at TRU (and im actually leaning towards going there!) but dont want to withdraw completely before hearing from other schools!

 

If anyone knows how this works with TRU please help clear it up!

Heres a direct quote from the application:

"Thompson Rivers University will share with other Canadian law schools the names of successful applicants, but will share no other information. "

 

Im not sure what exactly that means at the end of the day. Will they actually actively seek out other schools to let them know. Are they just saying that XYZ students have been admitted or do they mean "successful" as in XYZ students have been admitted and have accepted?

I believe that is correct. I did that with my second choice school and will now forfeit the deposit as I got my acceptance to TRU yesterday. Sucks but I decided that an extra $300 in the long run would be worth it to hold a spot just in case.

    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time 
    • Figured while you're waiting for an answer, I can jump in and answer a question as a Windsor resident, even though I won't be starting law until August.  Question 5: The Windsor bus system is I would say more reliable than other places. The busses usually run year-round, throughout all types of weather. The only times the busses usually don't run, are when the school is also closed. So in extreme cases basically!
