  1. Bolieve, Law Students Association Facebook page? Do I need an invite, or do you have a link, because I am having difficulty finding that specific page for the UofS. Much appreciated
  2. Hi, I am going into my first year of Law at the University of Saskatchewan, and am looking for a roommate that is in Law as well (Doesn't have to be). I am from Calgary and will be moving down for the school year (Sept-April). I'm fine with a male or female roommate. PM if interested.
  3. I wanted to reach out to see if there were any of you on this board that might have some insight into specific neighbourhoods to focus my search for rental housing for this upcoming September, or to stay away from (convenient location, reasonable rent rates, location where my truck won’t go missing in the middle of the night, etc.). I am from Calgary and have spent very little time in Saskatoon, but have started doing some digging myself (stay away from the ABC district), but would appreciate any helpful insight from those who know the city. Much appreciated for the info. Feel free to PM me with any specifics. Thanks!
  4. Accepted off of the waitlist June 6th, will be declining; good luck to those still waiting. The following stats are directly from the waitlist email I received on March 20. LSAT: 166 AGPA: 3.23 Index Score: 74.28 (61st position on the waitlist). I applied under the special consideration category, but did not receive an interview (also not an MB resident).
  5. I was received the email indicating my application had been decline April 15. GPA: 3.2 LSAT: 166 Professional engineer having worked in oil and gas in Calgary for the past 8 years. I will be accepting an offer to a school out west. Good luck to all those still waiting, and hopefully those of you on this thread have offers elsewhere. I am sure UWO has missed out on a few good students with stellar soft skills, but not the greatest grades or LSAT scores; holistic schools can definitely scoop them up. (I was accepted to TRU, Osgoode, U of S, & New Brunswick, and my grades are less than great).
  6. I was accepted April 30 under the discretionary category. My letter stated that the admissions committee had completed a preliminary review of applications for admission under the Discretionary Category. I applied under both the general and discretionary categories with the same application (advised to do so by their admissions department). I have worked for 8 years in the oil and gas industry as an Engineer in Calgary, hence the qualification to apply under the discretionary category. GPA: 3.1 LSAT: 166 I will be declining in favour of a school out west. Good luck to all those still waiting!

  8. Offered acceptance April 15 (mature student) GPA L3: 3.0 LSAT: 166 Had references from fellow oil and gas colleagues, good EC's, and good personal statement. Had to accept by April 30, declined the offer. Good luck to all those still waiting.
  9. Accepted yesterday (mature student) LSAT: 166 GPA B2: 3.25 Several long term EC's, solid professional references, good statement (my own subjective opinion), worked in oil and gas for 8 years. Must accept by May 22. U of S is my second choice, I'm accepting, but I am still waiting to hear from Calgary. Also, I had zero Saskatchewan connection.
  10. Accepted Dec. 17. cgpa: 2.87 LSAT: 166 Professional engineer with 8 years experience in oil and gas. Solid references and several long term EC’s in the community. Honestly, I am a little surprised to hear back when I did considering the low cgpa.
  11. I contacted TRU admissions regarding the ability to check on the status of outstanding documentation. My reply indicated that there is currently no system in place to monitor the receipt of documents, however, I was also informed that all of my documentation had been received. I have not received any notification in addition, from any sort of general admissions or automated email, stating that all documentation was received.
  12. Does anyone have any insight into how Universities look at undergraduate degree difficulty (eg. engineering vs. history vs. BComm)? I realize there are some schools, such as UBC, which specifically state difficulty is not taken into account, but are there schools that seem to favour certain undergraduate degrees. Individual incoming classes are broken down by some schools in their prospectus, but STEM fields are generally underrepresented... due to lack of interest in law? I've applied across the board, but want to temper my expectations based on insight from this site. Much appreciated!
  13. I know this is an even more difficult question to answer, but will certain schools take into account the difficulty of the undergraduate program? UBC specifically states that undergrad difficulty is not factored in when looking at an application.
  14. I Submitted my application Oct. 30, with all supporting documentation having arrived last week. I am hoping they take into consideration that the GPA is from an engineering degree, otherwise it doesn’t compare too favourably to most of the competition based solely on the number.
  15. Just wanting to get some insight into my chances... although I realize the TRU is holistic. Graduated in 2011 from U of C in Engineering, professional engineer with 7 years experience working for an oil and gas company (layed-off for 2 years and looking to take my career in a new direction practicing corporate law pertaining to oil and gas) cGPA:2.9 L90 GPA:3.1 LSAT: 156, 166 P.Eng designation (don't know if this will factor in), several long term EC's, and solid professional references. Personal statement focused on the integration of my engineering experience with law, and applications to the oil and gas industry. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
