  1. Congrats guys! I think we may have just very successfully scared off the original poster from ever considering law school.
  2. You are screwed buddy. Zero transferrable skills. No law school will ever accept you. Toss in the towel.
  3. Seriously though, there was nothing wrong with your advice. Philosophy is widely considered to be one of the better disciplines to study prior to law.
  4. Something hilarious about saying "get over yourselves" followed by that brag....
  5. Focus on the undergraduate degree and come into law school with an open mind. You will learn applicable skills in each undergrad. There is no one "best" undergrad to take. Also remember that "law" is a massive discipline and students/lawyers typically end up specializing. Those with science undergrads may learn applicable skills in health, environmental or technology law. Those with commerce degrees may learn info useful in corporate law. Those with criminology degrees may learn topics useful for criminal law. Ultimately, a Lawyer with a PHD in Analytical Philosophy wont be able to notarize a passport any better than the next guy.
  6. Really doesn't matter that much. I did a biology degree and seem to be holding up fine in my first year of law. Classmates who did political science/History in their undergrad have told me that they have seen benefits in courses such as Public/Constitutional/Aboriginal law. Many schools also have undergrad Commercial/Business law courses that could give you a head start in torts/property/contracts. Philosophy also great as mentioned above. Law schools wont really care too much about your course selection for admission.
  7. Maritime resident? is the 3.5 GPA overall or last two? Is your GPA 3.5/4.3? Regardless, I think you would have a decent shot of acceptance even as a "regular applicant". Being considered as a "Special Applicant" would only increase those chances, depending on the nature of your employment the past 5 years.
  8. Definitely apply. If you are a maritime resident, I would say very, very good chance of acceptance with your current stats. Apply as soon as you can. The way their "rolling acceptance" method works will favour your chances if you apply now rather than waiting until the end of the winter.
  9. If you are applying to some sort of scholarship outside of the entrance scholarship, the process may be different.
  10. What do you mean regular application? The references letters are the same for the acceptance/scholarship application I believe.
  11. If your L2 is 3.78, with 160+ LSAT you should be fine. I don't think holistic review necessarily means they will consider grades outside of your L2... Just means that place emphasis on more than just grades/LSAT like your personal statement/work experience/community service.
  12. How do most students take their notes at Dal Law? Pen and paper? Laptops? Are laptops frowned upon in lectures?
  13. Anyone know when they will make the official facebook group for class of 2022?
