  1. I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an icepack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the icepack, I use a deep-pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water-activated gel cleanser, then a honey-almond bodyscrub, and on the face, an exfoliating gel-scrub. Then I apply an herb mint facial masque, which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.
  2. I survived it. It's doable. That being said, would have obviously preferred in person.
  3. Congrats to everyone accepted, this must feel like a huge weight off of your shoulders. I remember the elation I felt when I was finally accepted. Please feel free to reach out to me about anything whether in terms of your upcoming year, Ottawa, living, etc. I did 1L Part-time this year so I will be taking some 1L classes again this year, too, so there is a high likelihood I will be in some classes with some of you. Looking forward to meeting everyone at some point.
  4. Thanks for the replies - I guess I'm shit out of luck.
  5. Hi there, I'm just wondering if anyone could shed some light on their experiences asking for feedback from jobs they were not successful in applying for, specifically after the interview stage. I had a summer job interview last month. The lawyer who interviewed me told me that I could reach out and ask for feedback if I was not successful. I have since e-mailed them twice in the last 3 weeks, and have received nothing. I'm just wondering if I should expect to hear back at all, and what I should do about it. I would like to know how I can improve for future interviews, so I am intent on hearing some kind of feedback. Do employers usually provide advice or am I SOL?
  6. I'm doing the same. I do much, much better in paper based courses (at least so far) than I do in exam based courses.
  7. I sat and thought long and hard about where my application went wrong. At first, I knew my LSAT was too low so I went back and wrote it twice, finally achieving a high enough score. Still didn't get in. I went back and took undergraduate classes after completing my Masters and got 4.0's in everything. I solicited advice from dozens of people on how to improve my personal statement. If you don't get in, understand where you went wrong and determine your options. Use the rejection as fuel to always do better.
  8. Update: I got an A on the case comment! Considering the first grade I received in the fall for my criminal law memo, this mark is one of my proudest moments in law school so far.
  9. Senioritas do give me trouble, given how beautiful they are, so yes I agree.
  10. Being a loser is certainly not correlated with a specific line of work or socio-economic status. For instance, I'm an RA right now, which by all accounts is a comfortable, well-paying job that is hard(ish) to get. I can certainly tell you that I am, in fact, a loser!
  11. You could do nothing and still be in great shape. As someone who tried to prep for 1L, it is largely a waste of time.
  12. I know everyone is probably super busy so I figure this is a shot in the dark but I figure I'd ask. If anyone had a few moments in the next few days, would someone kindly read over my criminal law case comment? I didn't do very well on my last crim written assignment, and I feel like I've really tried to improve on this assignment. If I could get a set of experienced eyes on it to guage clarity of the argument and writing, I would really appreciate it but no worries if you can't. Thank you!
  13. I'm a part time student with disabilities. For the most part, the reduced course load has been very manageable. I did well in my first semester (A, A-, B+, B) and I'm currently doing a research internship. I have to ask for assignment extensions at times, but my disabilities co-ordinator has been very understanding and is usually quite willing to accommodate. The material isn't too challenging, it's just a matter of adjusting certain habits that I didn't need to use during undergrad/grad school.
  14. I can ask my friends what they did. I've only ever lived with buddies in Ottawa. The Facebook accepted page would be a good place to start.
