Hi.

 

I have a quick questions as the Dal application seems very "lack" compared to the Ontario application.

 

I am just wondering how I submit my transcripts to Dal? Am I just freaking out because I have Submitted my application and that info will be given to me afterwards? Or maybe I am missing something?

 

Also, I think I submitted my university/college info a bunch of times because I couldn't see if the info had actually been saved or vanished into a vast nothingness of the Internet. Did anyone else have this type of concern?

 

Thanks for reading

You need to get your undergraduate institutions to mail official transcripts to Dal

 

 

Quoted from https://www.dal.ca/faculty/law/programs/jd-admissions/admission-requirements.html:Submit academic transcripts and letters of reference to the Schulich School of Law Admissions Office, Dalhousie University, PO Box 15000, Halifax, NS, B3H 4R2 by February 28. Applicants who wish to be considered for entrance scholarships must file transcripts and letters of reference by November 30.  Please note: referee statements can be submitted directly from referees via academic/professional email accounts to [email protected]
 
It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all materials relevant to the application are received by the Admissions Committee.

 

I'm not sure about the second thing. It doesn't really sound like something you need to worry about. But you're a law school applicant. So I assume you'll continue worrying for fun  :)

They give an address to send transcripts, but if you live in the city are you able to just go to the admissions office and hand it in in person?

Also, this question is for anyone who's gone on exchange during their undergrad. The courses have been brought back onto my transcript as credits withouts marks. In my contact with the office they said an unofficial transcript is all I need if I don't care about them being calculated into my GPA so they can use it for attendance verification. So I'm planning on handing in a copy printed out from their student portal along with my official Canadian transcript. Anyone else have experience with this?

I did the same thing! That is what the office at Dal says is acceptable

Are the authors of your LOR's supposed to also fill out that supplementary referee form?

Your LOR *is* the referee form (appendix A or w/e).

    • I was just waitlisted! Not feeling too optimistic since Windsor is know for waitlisting tons of people. I was really hoping to attend Windsor. 3.64 CGPA, 3.7 L2 ,153 (december), 157 (february) LSAT good EC's and LOR's.  Good luck to everyone else who has been waitlisted!
    • Why would you dry clean a cotton dress shirt? Pro-tip.  The newer non-iron shirts are great.     Unless ironing is your thing (not judging).      
    • A lot of newer dress shirts can be washed (some even say not to dry clean), so if you keep an eye on the tags when you’re buying them you’ll be okay  Good luck this summer! 
    • So I really wanted to complete the International Law Program at the Bader Castle next year; however, my very close cousin is getting married next year in the beginning of June. I cannot miss this wedding but I also really want to take part in the Bader program at the end of first year because in second year, I would want a summer job. For those who have done the Bader castle program before, would it be okay if I missed a few days of the program? I know it would put a bit of a dent in my wallet, but say I flew out for about 5 days to attend the program, would that be feasible?  Also, for those who have attended the Castle program in general, what are your thoughts on it? Is it worth it, how did you like it, what financial help is available etc.
