  1. This made me giggle - I definitely came out of Dean's Welcome last year wanting a lot more information It gets better, promise! You guys will get a lot more information about courses/etc. in mid-August when course schedules and whatnot go out and during Orientation.
  2. I made the choice to not work during 1L but I know a few people who do. For them, it looks like working PT is totally manageable, if a bit crazy. Speaking as someone who worked FT during undergrad, unless you really need that job I'd recommend taking a leave for the first term if you can. 1L is a huge adjustment and even having juggled work and school previously, I found the adjustment to be a bit hard. Not having to worry about work during the first term was a life saver for me. But again, there are lots of people who managed just fine, so it really depends on the person. I find the student body to be pretty diverse. There is a party culture, but if that isn't your thing there is still lots to do and people to meet. I'm not a huge partier but I've still found my people and we have a great time
  3. Do you have any specific questions? I'm happy to answer any Qs you have
  4. I would say you're in. I had almost the exact same stats and got back mid/end January last year. Good luck!
  5. I wrote the December LSAT last year and received my offer in mid/end January. You probably won't make the pre-Christmas wave, but possibly the late-January/early-February round.
  6. Hey! 1L here. I have a 2 year legal assistant diploma, so this may not be exactly applicable to your situation.... I still needed to get a degree to get into law school. I'd recommend checking to see if you can transfer the certificate credits into a degree program. I wound up going that route, and it saved me another 2 years of school. Good luck!
  7. If you are currently taking those courses through Athabasca U and want some support and help navigating their system, please feel free to shoot me PM. I took the last two years of my undergrad through them and some of their quirky silliness can be extremely frustrating. It's nice to have someone to vent to To echo everyone else, breathe and take care of yourself first above all - you won't be able to do your best if you aren't at your best. Focus on the next step and not what's potentially down the road 2, 5, 10 years from now. Also, when it comes to going back to a B&M university, AN's idea of taking 3 courses vs. 4 might not be a bad idea to help you get back into the swing of things.
  8. You're way ahead than I ever was with my prep. Breathe, you've got plenty of time
  9. I don't have much more to add to what everyone else has said, but it warrants being said regardless. Take care of yourself - your mental health is of utmost importance. If you need to take a leave, do it and don't feel guilty for doing so. You need to do what is best for you right now and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, including your coworkers/bosses. You are not alone and it will get better. Lots of love! Feel free to PM if you need someone to talk to
  10. My adviser also told me that I would get the 20,000 points with the card. Still waiting for it to show up though.
  11. Don't forget about those darn yearly expenses that pop up and surprise you every damn time like vehicle registration renewal, tenants insurance, credit card fees, etc. Personally, I've ditched the car to avoid vehicle related expenses and have gotten rid of the credit card that has a yearly fee. It's not much, but its still money saved.
  12. Rejected as well. 3.8/4.33-ish GPA, 162 LSAT.
  13. Hey guys. I've created the class Facebook group for us, which you can find here.
  14. Thanks so much for compiling this guys. This is fantastic.
