JD/JID

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else apply for the joint JD/JID program? Or for those who didn't apply what do you think of this program? I applied and I am non-Indigenous, and I really don't know what to expect. Does anyone expect it to be more competitive to get into than the regular JD? Interested in all your thoughts.

I assume it will be quite competitive. The general applicant pool is overwhelmingly open-minded and curious (and so many may apply) yet the JID program seats a vastly smaller number of students than does the standard JD program.

I believe non-indigenous students may actually have an advantage admissions-wise: indigenous JD graduates are already somewhat well positioned to work well with the indigenous community, such that the JID is likely to be used to strengthen indigenous relations with non-indigenous law students (rather than those already likely considering and equipped for an indigenous law career)

Has anyone who applied for the JID/JD heard back? I havent heard anything! If not does anyone know when we are expected to hear one way or another?

I decided to give them a call even though they'd been clear before that offers will start going out in late May through July. I was basically told the same thing. But she did say that if I haven't heard anything by mid-June, I can call back for an update.

To tell you the truth, I'm not at all confident in my prospects, but being human, it's hard not to have hope still.

    • The notion that everyone's doing better than you is a ridiculous concern, unless you're a solid C student. It would be strange NOT to call such a concern ridiculous. And if everyone is ACTUALLY doing better than you, the problem is the fact that you're a C student, not the fact that everyone is doing better than you. And, again, that's not a ridiculous concern, it's one that has to be taken seriously.  
    • And worth saying that law students are PRIVILEGED. Having downward spirals over getting some Bs is NOTHING compared to having them over much more serious and damaging issues. One thing that keeps me from spiralling is remembering how lucky I am, how much worse it can be and how much better off I am than so many other people despite whatever problems I’m having.
    • Ok, but I can fall into downward spirals really easily, too. I don’t have a label for why that is but I know I’ve been that way almost as long as I can remember. But it isn’t anyone else’s fault or anyone else’s responsibility to get me out, though I appreciate the love and support of those who can and do. My meltdowns are my issue that I have learned to deal with as best as I can. I can’t control what other people do and say.
    • More seriously, people are not entitled to uncritical reinforcement of their self-esteem.  No doubt it would make them feel better if they were, but they aren't entitled to that.  If I want to wear fishnet stockings, great for me, but I'm not entitled to validation from others.  
    • I went to the one in Feb but I brought both my parents with. A lot of other people did as well.
