    UVic - What's it like?

    The sticky wicket is where the Budget post party happens every year. It is not a happening place.

    UVic - What's it like?

    0Ls / 1Ls like to tell stories about how students at other schools are cut throat and unfriendly and its all paperchase all the time, but at <insert school name> the students aren't competitive and are all nice to each other. It is mostly nonsense, people are the same across Canada. Some are assholes and some aren't and there isn't some magic screening technique that concentrates the assholes in one school and not at another.

    UVic - What's it like?

    Victoria is an excellent place to live. It has good transit, an excellent beer scene, good food, and easy access to the great outdoors. Trying to get a summer or articling position in Toronto from BC is not impossible but you will have to fly yourself out to Toronto and make more of an effort.

    Compensation in and around Vancouver: 2018 Edition

    You are assuming they'd increase it retroactively instead of just for next year? They've already got you, why would they pay you more?

    USask vs Dalhousie vs TRU

    Just wanted to pile on to the "Kamloops isn't a complete shithole" comments. I worked in the bush around Kamloops for a number of years. It's not a bad little town, lots of fun things to do around the 'Loops and you can't smell the pulp mill (and I'm sensitive - the pulp mill stench in Prince George gave me nosebleeds). I would suggest getting a car or truck if you can though. You can bus places but can't get out to the great outdoors without one. I've never been to Halifax so I can't compare the two.

    UVic vs UBC

    UBC is a fine school and I enjoyed my time there. I don't know much about UVIC. The campus is nice? I don't think you can go wrong really.

    UVic vs UBC

    If you want to work for the provincial government as a lawyer either school will work just fine The "pace of life" in Victoria is slower than Vancouver. I like it here better than Vancouver.

    Suits For Men

    Went in to the local tailor today to have some buttons fixed on a suit. She had a huge picture frame hung in the lobby with different chunks of suits and dresses of her work. Like a resume. You want a pocket? Here's what my pockets look like. Darts? Cuffs? Lapels? It was pretty neat.

    Privilege is...

    Heavier White women who are married generally work more hours than married women who are thinner because they tend to marry men who earn less money and appear to have "less access" to their husband's income. That's one of the findings in a recent study led by Dr. Shoshana Grossbard, a professor of economics at San Diego State University. https://ifstudies.org/blog/body-weight-work-and-the-marriage-market-an-interview-with-shoshana-grossbard Health and wealth are privilege.
