  1. UofA will likely only take into account undergraduate marks (although they require transcripts from all post-secondary insitutions), so I think OP is fine. From https://calendar.ualberta.ca/content.php?catoid=6&navoid=942
  2. You may need to email your rep to make sure everything's good to go - I had to email mine because my accounts weren't linked properly, and they got it fixed up right away.
  3. Same here haha, but at least it's Crim and not Contracts 😂
  4. Oooo I'm excited for mine now!! September is so close!!!!!
  5. I don't believe so! The only way I could see them using a cancel to average out scores is if they used a 0, and that doesn't work, plus it would be really skeevy of them to guess at what you would have gotten.
  6. I agree, if you can, talk to a therapist. From my own perspective, as someone who has dealt with both a shitty family situation and a shitty job (but not at the same time): You have to fight. Life might be garbage right now but you have to hold on to what you're working toward. Hang on to your hope in a better future and whenever something awful happens at home or at work remind yourself that soon you'll be out of there. Hold on yo your hope that you'll get a good LSAT score and you'll get into law school and things will be better soon.
  7. Just off the top of my head, you have a good chance of getting into UofA with your current numbers, using the index calculator that's floating around this site (link below). Speaking just to the UofA, though, if you're not confident that you'll get a higher score in July then I wouldn't risk it, as UofA is one of those schools that averages LSAT scores. You may also have a shot at the UofC, but they're a holistic school and your marks are borderline for them so you'll have to have some good references and ECs to back your application up.
  8. I love Khan Academy; I used them for the majority of my studying and only started using the PS books when I found that some stuff just didn't click. My favourite part of Khan Academy is that you can do practice tests and they do all the timing and marking work for you, so that's one less thing to worry about. They also measure out what kind of progress you need to be making in order to hit your goal score and tailor your practice to focus on which sections you're weak in. The main weakness Khan has is that there are a finite number of practice questions, so if you're really stuck on a section you'll start running into the same questions over and over again. For me this is where the PS books came in. The PS books helped me to strategize, and Khan Academy helped me to put that in practice.
  9. I agree with the above posters, and also wanted to emphasize what UAbear said about the UofA being a numbers school. All they care about is a high GPA and LSAT score, so as long as your marks are high it doesn't matter what you major in.
  10. No for sure, this has just been on my mind lately and I wanted to make sure that anyone else browsing the thread had as much info as possible. The UofA website says that textbooks will run somewhere around $1500. https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/juris-doctor/tuitions-and-fees
  11. Yikes, that's basically your tuition and maybe a couple months' rent! I'm hoping they offer more, too, for your sake.
  12. The max loan that one is eligible for per year for law school is $22,500 ( https://studentaid.alberta.ca/before-you-apply/loan-limits/annual-loan-limits/) so it won't necessarily cover everything. After tuition (roughly $13,500), you're left with around $9000 to spread out over eight months, and that's IF they approve you for the maximum amount. IMO it's definitely worth going for a government loan first but unless you live at home or otherwise don't have too much in the way of living expenses you're going to need both the LOC/a part time job and the government loan.
  13. Thank you so much! I had tried searching their site but nothing came up. I'll keep the advice in mind as well.
  14. I know that somewhere, at some point, someone posted a list of reps that Scotiabank can contact, or that students can contact, but I can't seem to locate it now. If someone has that link, could they link it here? Thanks so much in advance!
  15. Yeah, the K refers to kindergarten. It means someone who has never been out of school; someone who went from kindergarten to getting their JD with no breaks.
