  1. Thank you for this! I definitely don't want to restrict my career options.
  2. Thanks for responding again. I really appreciated your post last time as well. I think I already knew that I probably shouldn't go next year but just needed some reassurance.
  3. Thanks for the advice. I'm thinking of taking a full load of courses this semester so that I can graduate next year but I'm probably going to work part time to keep expenses down.
  4. Not sure if this is where I should post this but whatever. I'm an undergrad student who will be completed 2.5 years of school at the end of this semester. This year, I applied to McGill and to USask law and was accepted at Usask but rejected at McGill. I've got a 167 LSAT and a 3.85ish GPA. I've got enough money saved up that, if I chose to go to USask next year, almost all of my legal education would be paid for. I'd also be able to work as a lawyer earlier than if I chose to wait a year or finish my degree before attending law school. However, I know that I'd likely be able to get into a lot of other schools with my stats. I don't have anything against living and working in Saskatchewan but also I don't want to limit my options just because I'm eager to go to law school early. Right now, I'm leaning towards attending the U of S just because it would be a blessing to have law school paid for. Thoughts?
  5. Not sure about your chances but that sounds like a pretty strong sask connection.
  6. You're probably right. The rejection letter they sent me didn't say much beyond telling me to apply again next cycle.
  7. Nah, I wouldn't say that. My LORs, PS, and ECs weren't very good so you could definitely have a great chance of admission despite a lower GPA and LSAT score than mine. Also, I'm only done two years of university so far so I think that definitely counted against me.
  8. I guess I might as well start this thread. LSAT: 167 GPA: 3.86 LOR: One good, one bad PS: Mediocre at best.
  9. Ah I think you're probably right. There's no need to rush such a big decision. Thanks for this comment.
  10. I didn't think 1L summer jobs were very common so that's pretty reassuring to hear! One last question: how does the workload compare to undergrad?
  11. I'll probably put the seat deposit down just to buy myself more time to decide. I don't think I've got the best chances at McGill this cycle.
  12. Yeah, I figured it was a long shot. I've also got mediocre at best ECs and LORs. Idk if my thinking is going to develop much in a year though. I've already crushed through just about all my required classes and would largely just be taking easy electives to boost my GPA. I think I am leaning towards finishing my degree though.
  13. French is decent. Went to french immersion elementary, took multiple french courses in high school and university, and I'm likely going to finish with a minor in French if I finish my degree. I'd prefer to practice in Montreal but wouldn't mind Saskatoon or Calgary either.
  14. So, this year I applied to the U of S and McGill having completed two years of undergrad courses (after this semester, I'll have completed 26 courses total). I haven't heard back from McGill but I got into U of S law. If I were to go to the U of S, I would not have to finish my degree (or at least another year of it) and I would save at least $7000 on tuition alone. I would graduate two years earlier and would be able to begin my career earlier than if I waited. Also, my parents live in Sask and I would be able to visit them much easier than if I went to school elsewhere. However, the U of S is not my first choice school. I wouldn't be heartbroken or anything if I ended up going there but my first choice is McGill. However, I haven't been accepted to McGill and, assuming I eventually got into McGill, I'd likely have to complete my degree beforehand which would mean 1.5 more years of undergrad. This would cost like $10,000 in tuition at least. Also, given that I would get into school at least one year later and McGill law takes 4 years rather than 3, I would be starting my career at least two years later than if I had gone to the U of S. Anybody have any advice? Also, my LSAT is a 167 and GPA is a 3.85 in case that has any bearing on anything.
  15. Thanks for the reply! What makes U of S the best option for jobs in Alberta/Calgary? You'd think university of calgary and university of alberta grads would have a leg up on u of s grads.
