  1. People with negative experiences are always going to be the most vocal. Even if someone has an absolutely terrific experience, they are not going to be as vocal as their counterpart.
  2. This is a question for you to answer.
  3. Just a few things: In undergrad, pursue what you are interested in. Go to the school that you think is best for you (Undergraduate school does matter. There is a difference if you go to uoft or sfu for your undergraduate. However, this difference is minuscule.) Look at how much debt you want to get into vs how much you want to go to a certain school. Maybe talk to your family about this more. You will change your mind on what you want to do many times. Don't worry about which area of law to go into, especially when you haven't even gone to university yet. Research what law is actually like. I recommend going through Uriel, Pyke, Hegdis, and other user's posts on this forum and learn about their various experiences. And to quote CasualInversion, "Come see us in three years".
  4. Lol, I meant to write anti-gluten.
  5. The problems, in terms of the city itself, that pursuant88 mentioned are also true.
  6. Well by culture I mean specifically extremely left politics, hippy, anti-science (anti-gmo, pro-gluten, pro-organic etc.), lack of diversity, etc. There is also lots of issues with inclusivity (if you dont conform or hold certain views, you are excluded).
  7. Being at UVic campus myself(undergrad), I would recommend UBC. Victoria is itself just a tougher place to live. Not as much diversity, opportunities, services etc. The culture also is a bit exclusive. Also, UBC and UVic are actually very similar in price. Rent and tuition is higher in Vancouver sure, but everything else in Victoria is much higher too (food, services, transportation,etc.) UVic is a fine university with some really good amenities and professors but the city and culture hold it back greatly.
  8. You should at least take a diagnostic and see where you are at. A year is more than just excessive. I think if someone actively needs to study for a year then that candidate is not qualified for law school regardless.
  9. Avatars are cool. They add a touch of personality to your profile and posts. NO reason not to have one.
  10. http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/39485-transferring-offices-in-national-law-firms/ This might help though im sure Uriel will provide some good info as well.
  11. I think you are being rather close minded. You are assuming that these types of questions are not being asked and only questions of money are. There is much dialogue surrounding the topics you mentioned, even on this forum.
  12. You really had me going there for a moment.
  13. Its just not a feasible idea. Its hard to imagine you will have the time and that your employer would even allow you the time for the other opportunity. Like some have said, acting could be something that you might be able to do after you have gained some experience and have moved up the ladder.
  14. Ermm, I don't know about that one. There you get snow and sun. Here we get rain and rain.
  15. Tes1a? Are you talking about Tesla?
  16. The implication was that any major would allow you to develop writing and analysis skills...
  17. Why would someone who attends/attended laws school be better at giving advice, especially in comparison of multiple schools, than me? Its not like most students have attended multiple schools. Its research. You can read about it like me, or experience it like law students.
  18. Not at all early. OP There is a considerable difference between the two. Personally, as an undergraduate here, I would recommend UVic over TRU. Reputation, location, and generally opportunities are greater at UVic.
  19. something something low tuition = not enough maintenance of facilities something french is required something something civl law is bad
