Congratulations to both of you!! :) When did you send in your applications?

Thanks - I think in the first week of October. Letters were sent near the end of October.

Was anyone else given until Nov 28 to pay the deposit?

I was given until November 17th to pay the commitment fee - likely a result of the date the offer was received

Accepted today. 

GPA:3.75 or 3.8

LSAT:165

Master's degree (doesn't count to gpa, but it's an EC, i guess?)

 

 

I don't really want to ask admissions this, but does paying the commitment fee preclude you from receiving or accepting offers from other universities? I like the idea of going to TRU, but I applied to a few other universities that might not get back to me before the end of the month when my commitment fee would be due.

Hey, I think you can accept the offer and then withdraw if you get into somewhere else. The downside would be that you lose your deposit

How did you get your acceptance? Via email or through the Education Planner BC?

 

I received mine both by email and by letter a few days later, if that's helpful :) I don't think they use the Education Planner BC for any correspondence.

    • I learned to embrace the fact that I'm financially independent. I speak loudly about my debt, without shame. My family immigrated here. They worked hard. They somehow found jobs in their profession. They're now saving for retirement, so I didn't want to put the 100 000 burden on them while they're doing that - it's hard enough to retire after only 15-20 working years in a country without having to service law school debt! Yes I'm worried about my debt. But I'm proud of it because I'm investing in my career so I can do some good in the world. I could've taken an entry level consulting gig after my undergrad, but that wasn't what I wanted to do So I turned it down. When my friends tell me about their reading week trip to Morocco in a 5 star resort, I tell them how I managed to fund a 4 day ski trip off of my credit card points plus 100 dollars. And we both share our experiences over a beer. And while it's hard, I also imagine what an amazing life my kids, if I'm lucky enough to have any, will have - and that pushes me to work harder.   Sorry went on a rant there. It's been.. an interesting night.
    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear. 
    • Is drinking an Olympic sport? 
    • "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting. 
    • The two aren't mutually exclusive. I've enjoyed all the activities that I planned to do before applying and have met some great people along the way.
