    1L textbooks

    For the first year courses, do all profs use the same textbooks? Or do different sections of the same course potentially use different ones?

    1L textbooks

    For you upper year students, would you recommend buying new copies of 1L textbooks? Or are used copies/editions sufficient? I'm just trying to create a budget for the Fall and damn them things are expensive.
  3. Did they offer any fancy credit cards w/ this deal? Because one thing that's making me lean towards Scotia (all other things being equal) is the Visa Infinite card that they're offering w/ no monthly fee
  4. Update: I emailed a Scotiabank rep and they immediately offered me 125k at prime. I am going to UCalgary law just in case anyone was wondering about the rates you can get with different schools

    Crowsnest/ Apartment

    They're bought on a per semester basis. The costs depends on which lot you're looking at http://www.ucalgary.ca/parking/parkingpermits
  6. Hi all, I recently heard bank from RBC (the bank my accounts are currently with) and I was offered a PSLOC with a limit of 75k and a rate of Prime+0.5%. I was not overly impressed with this offer, so I was just wondering what offers you were able to secure with your other banks. Thanks in advance!
  7. I am 21 and am accepted

    Dean's open house

    The invite said "smart casual" so a suit and tie might be a little more formal than that. Look nice, but I definitely don't think a suit is necessary (I won't be wearing one).

    Entrance Awards?

    Yea I'd imagine they're gonna wait until right near the end of the month to release them, since that's when the deadline to accept is

    Dean's open house

    Well the description says that it includes a tour, info session and then its followed by a mixer with other admitted students and faculty. That seems like plenty to fill 3 hours to me.

    How Long Were You Green Circled?

    I was about 5 days from green circle to acceptance I think.
  12. I received offers from both and I'm going to UofC
  13. I purposely build a victory lap last semester because I knew it would happen. So my give-a-shit level is dropping, but its still high enough to breeze through these easy courses.
  14. For me this is a big part of why I want to move out. I sort of have the opposite parent situation that you have, I have don't have a good relationship with them in the sense that I disagree with them socially on basically every issue, and I have no respect for my father particularly for many things he's done in my life. This leads to constant fighting wherein my father will threaten to kick me out on the street. Being so far away from the school is another important issue, I hate being at home so I tend to do most of my studying at the library. After a long night of studying I hardly feel like commuting home for an hour, where upon getting home I get interrogated by my parents because "there's no way that I was at the library all that time". I feel like being so far away from the school would also hamper my ability to make important connections in law school. Since law school is a relatively small faculty, building a network of connections in school with people that will be my future colleagues, I think, would be very valuable to me. Having to commute so far to get home to a place where there's no transit access would likely mean me skipping out on many socialising opportunities. Lastly, as I've mentioned, I am in quite a serious relationship and she also lives quite close to the university so moving closer would save a long commute for both of us multiple times per week. For those that have wondered why we don't simply move in together, she is from a rather traditional family, and they would be quite disappointed if we lived together before we are, at least, engaged. Also, since this seems to be somewhat of a salient point in this thread, I am 22 years old.
  15. I currently am in a serious relationship and she lives very close to the university, so I'd be saving travel time there as well.
