  1. LoseControl, I am a 2L at USask law and I got in without a full degree and the school waited for my marks in April before sending me an offer. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I received my offer about a week after they received my grades.
  2. Making CANs will unleash your inner hatred for Microsoft Word (if the hatred didn't exist already).
  3. I don't know about the second question, but the school just needs your LSAC number and your SIN to get your score.
  4. I ended up applying to other schools after I submitted my app, so I would not have disclosed them on my app. I don't think it was ever an issue. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Also, I think legalshmeegal is right regarding schools sharing information, but I think it's not until much later in the application process (I think it is through LSAC, but I'm not positive there either).
  5. I had an interview at one of the largest law firms in Sask today. I guess my lack of degree and JD was not an issue.
  6. I got in without a degree and the College did wait for my all my final grades. I was accepted a few days after they received them in May. If you're scoring that well on the LSAT, I would say your chances are pretty good, the only thing is that you won't have a decision until May or later (this year the waitlist was created at the end of May, I believe).
  7. Spring courses would not be used in calculating your best two years. Like Jess said, a full year is considered September to April. I *think* that if you don't have two full years, they use your cGPA.
  8. Thanks, everyone. I'm glad to know backpacks are a relatively common appearance. I didn't have a backpack in my last year of undergrad and it nearly killed me some days lugging the stuff back and forth (classes that "required" me to bring textbooks to class...urgh). Esther414, you said you're looking for a new backpack? What is it about your old one that wasn't working well for you? I'd like to be one of those people who brings next to nothing to class, but the past has proven I most likely will never be.
  9. Thanks for the responses. I'm starting in September, so I guess I don't know what my preferences will be until I get there; just wanted a general idea of what the typical student brings to class so I can prepare myself.
  10. Well, yes, I will wear what I want, depending on if it is practical. What I'm asking is, is the haul of stuff to school too heavy for me to use a shoulder bag rather than a backpack?
  11. Do law students typically bring backpacks to school? How much stuff can I expect to haul to class every day? I love backpacks for how much they can hold while maintaining at least a bit of comfort, but I really hate how they look (especially on a small woman!). I feel that I look a bit childish. Is a shoulder bag do-able in law school? Or am I destined for a backpack for at least three more years...
  12. Yep, that's City Park! It's a nice area, in my opinion (almost rented there), lots of small, older homes and apartment buildings. Lots of mature trees, walking distance to downtown and school. Right by the river, too!
  13. I had the exact same B2 as you, and very similar LSAT (156) and got in in Sask this cycle (although I am from Sask, and only had 3 years of an undergrad, not an MA like you). I was rejected at UNB (they didn't wait for my April grades which were very high), and I think my index score at U of M was going to be too low (withdrew before a decision was made), so you'd have to calculate your aGPA to see if you had a realistic chance there. I didn't bother applying to any Ontario schools due to my LSAT. Just to give you a bit of an idea since my stats are similar to yours.
  14. I started out taking natural sciences and got pretty mediocre grades. At the end of my first year, I switched my major to Sociology because I had done well in it and enjoyed it. My grades basically skyrocketed in the two years following this change, and I know exactly why: I was doing something I felt I was good at; I was doing something I enjoyed; and I had completely figured out how to write a sociology paper (I was actually so good at it that I'm a bit worried of having to write law papers now since my focus has been so narrow the past few years). For me, getting 90s was way more realistic and achievable in social sciences than natural sciences. The other thing was, I was viewing my undergrad as an entity itself rather than simply a means to an end to achieve admittance into law. Take the time to enjoy whatever it is you're studying! The other thing is, depending on what your average really is and what you get on the LSAT, you will want to apply to schools strategically. Once you have your stats, you need to research schools and decide which ones you have a realistic chance at.
  15. Yep - I'm on the outskirts of town and it takes me ten minutes to drive to school, just straight down College Dr. Stonebridge is similar - you would just get straight onto Circle Dr., and then onto College (where the school is located). Basically, as long as you're on the East side, your drive shouldn't be a lot longer than 15 minutes.
