  1. That. Is. AWESOME! That is great! I would like to continue working for the organization I am currently working for, just within the capacity of a counsel instead of the current role I hold. I know we accept articulating students, so I am sure if I identify some key people I can perhaps get placement here as a student! Thanks so much! That just made me really happy and even more enthused about choosing Lakehead!!
  2. Question about this, Can students only pick placements that have applied to the University? Or are students able to find their own placements with agencies/organizations they like, if that organization is willing to accept the student?

    Accepted to Lakehead 2018

    http://aptnnews.ca/2018/04/23/professor-aboriginal-committee-stand-by-lakehead-u-dean-who-quit-amid-allegations-of-racism/ Is this causing concern for anyone else?

    Trouble accessing myInfo

    Thanks all for your help! It seems to have sorted itself out. I guess maybe I just wasn't in the system.
  5. Is anyone else having trouble accessing myInfo from lakehead? I reset my password twice and still cannot get in. It keeps saying unrecognized username or password. Kind of annoying.

    Accepted to Lakehead 2018

    Was accepted a couple weeks ago, just confirmed my offer today (was debating whether I'd post here or not, I've been lurking but unsure haha). Anyway, accepted today and still can't believe it!!!
  7. Did you end up getting accepted?
  8. Hello all! Or dois-je dire, Salut tout le monde! J'aimerais écouter plus des étudiants de Moncton. Il semble que tous les étudiants ici sont silencieux! J'aimerais savoir plus sur l'université. C'est amiable? Les professeurs son sympathique? I am thinking of applying here for the Sept 2018 start date. I have applied within Ontario already but wanted to check other provinces out too and I like the dedication Moncton has to French, but I can't seem to find much about them in terms of student satisfaction, reputability, etc. Thoughts, opinions and all welcome!
  9. While I am not sure about your methods to answering questions, one way I use is to just memorize formulas based on Powerscore, Kaplan etc. I use these formulas to "plug in" my results of the question and verify my answers. For example Justify questions, I would do Answer choice + premise = conclusion. - Assumption : Conclusion = assumption (answer choice) Must be true questions Conclusion = answer choice I find this has really helped me. Unlike you, I would not understand why I didn't get a question right, until I began using these and other formulas and then it started to make more sense. Good luck!

    URGENT: Referees

    I just contacted Lakehead about it. They need by November 1st generally speaking; however, some schools make an exception. Lakehead is one of them. They stated they would accept up to a week from Nov 1st. But they also said that not all schools may be as lenient, you will need to contact the institution in which you have applied. Hope this helps and I am in the same boat as you. Fingers crossed!

    Including publications on OUAC

    Thank you all! I will just cite it and remove it from SAM.

    Referee help

    In the same boat! One of my references has yet to submit and I cannot get ahold of them. I reached out to my first choice university today and they said that, while this isn't ideal, it's not a huge issue for this particular school (Lakehead). They will accept up to a week late. Not sure for the other ones though!

    Including publications on OUAC

    Hi there, I am about to submit my application today, as tomorrow is the deadline, but I am torn about whether or not to provide a copy of professional publications I have? My first choice is Lakehead, as I have a strong tie to rural communities and I have published an article about barriers to rural community health care (from a nursing perspective) that I have discussed in my PS but also would like to provide to the admissions committee. Should I include it under SAM? Or should I just reference it. My reluctance stems from that fact that OUAC says do not include any documents that are not listed on the list of things to include, and publications are not one of them. Should I just source it and leave it up to the admissions committee to retrieve it (it is open access though, everyone has access to it, you do not need a membership to a research database). Thoughts? Thank you in advance!

    Scholarships?

    Hello Megatron7, I wondered this same question! It helps to have a little bit of creativity and look for non-traditional scholarships as well as those tailored to law students. Scholarships such as "hardship scholarships" and, depending on our location "rural student" scholarships. You can find these in random places, simply by typing into Google. It also helps to ask around as well! By discussing my aspirations of law school with my employer i actually found out that they would fund me up to 5,000$ for tuition if I applied for my organization's "homegrown student" scholarships. As well, as I belong to a professional association, despite the fact law school is not within my current profession, they are willing to fund me up to 2,000$ towards tutition. These were things I had no idea about and only discovered by making phone calls and discussing with peers and colleagues. It may sound labour intensive but it really is worth it! Look around with the resources you have and you may be surprised . It lists you as in Edmonton, but this is another site I used: https://www.ontario.ca/page/student-loans-grants-scholarships-and-bursaries#section-2 It does link you to scholarshipscanada.com but it also provides some information on other, Ontario specific scholarships. Also check with the university you are attending! Sometimes they will automatically apply a scholarship to your tuition. This happened to me in my masters degree, I had no idea but I had, by default, got over 3,000 in scholarships by just maintaining a 4.0 GPA in my MSc degree! I didn't know until I did my tax returns. I hope this is helpful! Best of luck !

    June 2017 LSAT Study Thread

    Anyone use Kaplan's? I just bought the Kaplan's LSAT Premier 2016-2017. It is really heavy on Theory and very minimal on actual practice questions. Anyone have any experience with this/comments/reviews? Thank you!
