  1. They may have changed the format this year. I received a personal email from her asking me to be a tutor. All that is required is an academic reference.
  2. It depends where you are! I'm currently doing online classes from B.C. and I have to wake up at 7:00am for a 10am class. I'll be going back to Kingston in the fall, since 830am classes would not be feasible for me.
  3. I’m 26 and I just finished 1L! Don’t worry about age, a good number of my friends are 24-27. To be honest, from my experience people who take a break after undergrad tend to do better in law school.
  4. Defer if you can! 1. It sounds like this inters hip is your dream. 2. I worked for two years post-undergrad and honestly I’m so happy I did. Having « real » work experience has really opened up opportunities for me in 1L. 3. If you’re a social person, doing 1L online might be really hard. I know it would have been for me. You’ve probably heard this countless times but the law school community is what makes law school special. If you’re an extrovert like me, having a good group of friends and support system is so crucial to doing well in law school!
  5. Queen’s has amazing public law and criminal law professors. It’s also the only school with a prison law clinic- one of the perks of having 7 jails in Kingston!
  6. Definitely Queens! It’s a fantastic community and a good number of students end up in corporate law on Bay Street.
  7. I don’t know about Western but Queen’s has a fantastic Crim program! You can also apply to the prison law clinic and get great practical experience in the field.
  8. 1L here! I feel the same way. I’ve been reading cases and doing my own briefs, then looking at summaries online to make sure I understood the main issues/rule and adding anything I might have missed. Then I bring them to class for discussion and add anything my prof says.
  9. Thanks @savvytoo, that’s super helpful! I’ll contact the Kingston rep.
  10. I’m a 0L starting to look into getting a PSLOC, and I’m wondering what deals other Queen’s Law students have gotten so that I can better negotiate. ie: Were you able to get prime? In addition, is it best to go through a school rep or your local bank?
  11. @SneakySuspect Followed my gut & firmly accepted Queen’s!
  12. Oh I ended up mailing it. 😓 Glad to know that you can email it in!
  13. I am in the process of completing the Queen's admission bursary form and it states: "Please tell us about your debt load to date including the loan debt you will be incurring in the 2019-2020 academic year." How are you supposed to know what your student loan and/or LOC amount will be for the upcoming year? Should have I already applied for loans for next year or is it an educated guess? ps: I hope this is not a dumb question, this is my first time applying for loans so bear with me!
  14. Accepted by email. Lsat 165, CGPA 3.8 Strong campus involvement, student union director, co-op placements, currently working in politics. BC resident. Will be declining because of the cost of tuition. 😳
  15. I saw that the Ontario government is expected to cut tuition fees for domestic students by 10% beginning in fall 2019. Does anyone know if this will affect law students/schools as well?
  16. Sorry, bad BC habit... I definitely meant Ontario/Eastern Canada when I said East Coast, not Atlantic Canada.
  17. I didn’t apply to any BC schools. I did my undergrad at UVic and Vancouver is completely unaffordable now. + I’m planning to work on the East coast after graduating, but eventually move back to BC.
  18. I've been lucky enough to have received offers from Osgoode, Queens, Ottawa and Dalhousie, but I am leaning towards Osgoode or Queens. I was pretty set on Osgoode but since receiving an offer from Queens yesterday, I am having doubts. The "prestige" factor is definitely drawing me to Osgoode, as well as the huge class selection. What is less appealing to me is North York, and the cost of housing. It may sound trivial to some but having a nice apartment/housing during law school is very important to me (hellooo mental health!). What appeals to me about Queen's is the campus itself, the housing prices, and the community. I especially love the idea of the 25-people cohort. I am a social person and I need a good social circle if I am going to make it through law school. Am I crazy to be thinking of going to Queens over Osgoode? Should I still be considering Ottawa and Dalhousie? A few things about me: I'm from BC and would love to go back to BC at some point in my career I am not necessarily interested in a Bay Street job I currently work in politics, therefore I'm leaning towards Public Law but I'd like to keep my options open I am fully bilingual Smaller classes and a tight-knit community are appealing to me
  19. Me too! LSAT: 165 GPA: 3.8 BC Resident Might decline for Osgoode.
  20. Just received an offer from them this morning!
