  1. Hi, Just wondering what the first year of courses looks like. I try to search on the website but they only show 3 courses. Do we get to choose our own courses or it is setup for us by the faculty. Any input is highly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hello, My stats are 3.2 gpa as per calculated by u of a and 157 lsat score. I got rejected even though i thought my holistic profile was very strong.I have been accepted by 5 other schools though. Edmonton was my first choice because its home for me and i have a kid who is 2 years. He will be living with his dad here while i go away to law school in BC this coming Sept if all gets better with covid. I still want to apply for a transfer during 2nd year so i can be closer to my kid and stay home. My question is that when i try to apply for a transfer, what is the biggest aspect of the profile they consider? should I re take LSAT? Also should I try emailing UofA (may be a dean or assistant dean) for a reconsideration of my application for 2020? I would like to hear about both successful and unsuccessful experience about this. appreciate the help. Thanks!

  4. hi, I got accepted into the Sept 2020 intake and I am from Alberta. I was hoping to get some insight about what a first year student should do to prepare for the move to Victoria. In terms of housing, packing etc. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Hey, Congrats to all of you!! Does anyone know when does the last call of offers go out? I was told that it could be as late as end of aug. Thanks!
  6. Hello, I was looking for rules about posting about tutoring services for LSAT. Could someone please specify if/what is allowed? Thanks
  7. I have applied to Calgary as well. Hoping to stay in Alberta if I can.
  8. Hello, I have applied for 2020 cycle for law school. 30 years old here, with a 3.2 GPA and 158 LSAT. A lot of work experience and some decent volunteer experience. My life has been pretty rough with surviving physical abuse, living with PTSd etc. I am 100% sure that there are people out there who have it worse than I did. These circumstances have affected a lot of my academic life. I have submitted my PS but it does not shed light too much on what actually happened. I was told that I should not include something that sensitive with details. So there is only one line of me being survivor and how it is going to help with pursue law. Now, A lot of people are telling me that I should have included a lot more info about the incidents. Should I write an email to admissions and see if I could be looked at the non existent holistic view/special consideration? if yes, to whom or where? Help is very much appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Hello, I am writing a personal statement for Lake head and they want us to discuss their 3 mandates . I can only find so much online to get a better understanding for the mandates. Can anyone help or point me to the right direction in terms of getting more understanding of Lakehead Law's following mandates: Aboriginal and Indigenous Law Natural Resources and Environmental Law Sole/Small Town Practice with the Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC) Thanks!
  10. So, like a lot of people, my life was just not school and study growing up. I am the oldest among the kids, my mother dealing with worse kinds of health issues since i was 14, having two younger siblings, My father had to leave me in charge of a lot of things while he was out making ends meet. I went to college here in Edmonton while doing all what I was suppose to and from time to time it affected my gpa. My last two yr GPA is 3.25. I took Lsat twice. first take i scored 152 and second take i was sure i scored atleast 165 like but ended up with a 140. Reason that I was stupid enough to fill the answer sheet wrong. I am scoring in 170s right now on my practice. and I want to take the test again to apply to U of A. But since they take average of all your LSAT attempts, it is even worth applying to since my average will sit around mid 150s even if i managed to score 170s on the next attempt.
  11. Hello, I am trying to figure out which Canadian Law schools average LSAT score, which takes the highest or latest? Some websites are unclear about this. Thanks!
  12. This may be a stupid question. Does the green circle mean something other than application complete and pending decision?
  13. So here is a question. I am taking the test tomorrow and I am not driving myself as in taking the LRT to UofA so no where to put my personal belongings. The exam is going to be held in Centennial Ctr for Inter Sci L1 (assuming this means level 1 or main floor). Are there any lockers in that building? I was told usually students can rent them out or use it for time being to place their own locks for the day? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Questions.. Since we got our score for Nov today, When should the 1st cycle of acceptance should we expect to see from U of A? Thanks!
