  1. If I don't make it into BigLaw (considering that only few students go there), in your opinion what types of law and experience to guarantee 100k-200k? And if not that then what should I expect to be earning as a lawyer with 3-5 years of experience?
  2. Hey guys, I am a fourth year who has finished applying to law school, done their LSAT and now just waiting for the law schools to make their decisions. I have only applied to Ontario law schools. Recently I have been doing more research on what lawyers think of the profession and honestly most opinions that I am reading paint a very dark picture with long hours, and little pay. I would like it if some of you could share your thoughts/opinions/personal experiences. I have an undergrad degree which I can get a job with right out of undergrad so I was just wondering. I have always wanted to be a lawyer and was attracted to the field partly due to the high income earning potentials. I understand that for the first 4-6 years that may not be a possibility as I will still be learning but I definitely want to be making 100k-200k in my career. Please don't tell me to not go into law thinking only about money; I am not, but in this world you have to be realistic. No one is gonna go under debt and extra schooling for the pure passion of it. Yes I have passion and a desire to be a lawyer, but I definitely do want to be making money as no one is putting me through school and I will be exclusively depending on loans. I would really appreciate your honest advice thanks! Please be gentle LOOL
  3. Hello! I am deciding to start studying for the LSAT. The problem is that I have no clue where to even get started and what books to study from. If anyone could help me out in this process i would greatly appreciate it.
  4. Hey, I appreciate the quick reply. I know that obviously we don't know what I will be getting marks wise in the future. But say I get an average of 3.67 on a 4.33 scale in the B2/L2 , what would I need to get on the lsat to get into a law school in Canada. Appreciate any and all constructive feedback!
  5. Thanks for your reply! I would just like to add that I actually will have a year of co op by the time I finish. I am not planning on finishing this degree and will be transferring this summer to a relatively easier program and university. I understand this is a lot of "ifs" but I have a problem with motivation so any guidance or hopes regarding law school could really make up my mind on what I should do going forward. Even in the school I am currently in I have participated in two leadership roles in two university verified clubs. I have also worked part time through out and commute because of financial/family issues. Appreciate any and all constructive feedback!
  6. . I was wondering if you would be able to help me in my situation. Currently I am in my second year at have a cgpa of a 1.67 (C-), I am planning to switch universities and undergrads altogether because this a very tough undergrad (physics) but i am doing this to get a degree and improve my chances for post grad/ job applications but also for law school. If I do another undergrad (4 years) do you think I would have a chance at any law school given I do well (A-) or should I not get my hopes up. If there is still a chance is there anything I could do to give me a competitive edge. Also are there any universities that ONLY look at B2/L2. I know U SASK looks at only B2/L2 but are there any other at which I will have a decent chance at. Thanks!
