    Yes, I completely understand! Although, at first that may seem like a checkmark on the cons list, I’m grateful to have a well paying job to help pay off the massive debt I am going to incur lol

    Diplock, Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I have to admit that it has at times been overwhelming thinking about what it takes to be a successful candidate. Your reply makes a lot of sense, and I appreciate the reminder that my main focus should be on doing well in my undergrad and going from there. Thanks again!

    Once I get to that point, I intend on applying for an educational leave. I understand it will be a gruelling work load.

    Thank you for your reply, I came across this information during my research. I should have been more specific with what I am looking for. I would greatly appreciate insight on what I should be doing from now, up until I am ready to apply - besides obviously maintaining a high gpa. Are there any specific volunteer organizations, programs that I should get involved with? Basically besides finishing my undergrad, what can I be doing to become a strong candidate? I apologize for my vague post, I am just eager to hear from all kinds of different perspectives and points of view on the best, most efficient path into Law School.
  7. Hi everyone, Just looking for some insight and advice regarding my situation. I have been working as a professional firefighter for the last eight years. I am just beginning Undergraduate studies in the Public Administration Program at York University in the Fall of 2018. I am extremely excited to begin my academic career! I have aspirations to apply to Law School once my undergraduate studies are complete. I believe I fall into the Mature Student category. I am hoping to gain some insight and direction here on how I can make myself a very competitive applicant. Because I will also be working for Toronto Fire, I am limited to Osgoode and U of T. I understand they are both difficult schools to get into. So any advice on how I can put myself in the best possible position to gain admission would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  8. Hi everyone, To go along with the first person's question- is there anyone on here who did receive acceptance without having a undergrad? I am a current professional firefighter, with seven years experience. My only post secondary education is the firefighter pre-service program. Just looking for any insight and advice on how to make my application as strong as possible, and to hopefully hear from anyone who has followed a similar path. Any feedback will be extremely appreciated! Thanks
