  1. I've been a construction worker for 6 years now while studying in uni trying to become a lawyer. Yes, the money is good and I have friends who paint houses for good money as well. But its also back-breaking, arthritis inducing, painful manual labour. I'm already seeing lots of physical damage to my body and its only been 6 years. I could very well be making 90k next year if I keep going at the pace I am. But the money isn't worth it anymore and I don't want to be doing this type of manual labour intensive work for 40 more years. Just my 2 cents.
  2. So I was just wondering what kind of services or job fairs or any important in-person stuff that incoming 1L's are going to lose out on because a lot of law schools are choosing to do at least the Fall 2020 online? Are we losing out on important clinics, job fairs, articling opportunities, moots? And also, is it worth it to lose all the in-person opportunities or to wait till Fall 2021? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Yeah I thought that if waitlisted students would receive this email, that possibly accepted students would also get a similar one? Because many students accepted before knowing that the fall semester would be online, and the school might give them a chance to reconsider their acceptances now that they know at least the fall 2020 semester is online. But it seems like from strugglingSFUgal, that they didn't get the option.
  4. I think I'm wondering if the accepted students received a similar email asking them if they want to keep their offers now that at least the fall semester is completely online?
  5. Rejected this morning: Lsat 157 CGPA APPROX 3.4-3.5 after drops 😰
  6. Would you say your stats are relatively the same as this year? Because im waitlisted with similar stats and the movement is minimal for UCal so far
  7. waitlisted today! L2: 3.5-3.6 self calculated 157 LSAT Amazing references and no EC's working full time for the last 6 years during school
  8. I have similar stats and I submitted my application back in november as well and no reply yet. So youre not alone!
  9. Thanks for reading this because like all students, I would love some insight into my chances at getting accepted into any canadian law schools. CGPA: 3.3 L2: 3.48 LSAT:157 If it helps, good work experience in another field and great references. Thanks again!
  10. Thanks guys I'll edit it so that everyone can be completely informed about the admissions info! Okay so Osgoode isn't completely holistic as well as Ottawa. And UBC and Victoria are both index schools. Awesome!
  11. I just went off the information that the website provided. For OZ, it says "Osgoode Hall Law School has a holistic admissions policy which identifies a diverse and outstanding group of students whose outstanding academic abilities, varied achievements and sustained engagement make a continuing positive contribution to the Law School, the legal profession and the community." Ottawa says that they We consider many factors including: significant achievements in extracurricular activities while at university or in community involvement; outstanding qualities or achievements in previous careers; linguistic, cultural or other factors that add to an applicant’s overall academic achievement; and personal success in overcoming challenges such as a disability or financial hardship. But if you had alternative experience with those two law schools, then I would love to know so I can be more informed when I apply.
  12. I made a guide compiled with the current admissions info for all English speaking common law schools in Canada and hopefully by putting it all on one page, it'll make it easier to compare. Good luck to all!
