  1. The class of 2023 facebook group is at 204 members, I'm sure a few of those members are the 1L ambassadors. I was speaking with a member of the faculty today, and she said that students can withdraw or apply for deferral at anytime, even if it is past the deadline to receive a fee refund. With that being said, I would be surprised if anyone were to withdraw so close to September, but you never know!
  2. Would anyone be able to speak to the differences/similarities between PI and medical negligence? I've spoken to a number of PI lawyers in BC, and it seems like they primarily deal with ICBC cases. It would be interesting to know what kind of clients medical negligence lawyers work with as well.
  3. Hey, When I finished my undergrad I actually had no idea what I wanted to do after and ended up taking off a few years before applying. This ended up being the best decision I could have made. I had a whole year to take my time and study for the LSAT, while still working full time. I had time and a bit of money to travel, or go on weekend adventures. I gained real world experience through the jobs that I had. I honestly don’t think I’d be prepare to start law school, or enter a career as a lawyer without having taken some time off. Look at your time “off” as an opportunity. Spend it doing some activities or hobbies you’ve been wanting to do. Volunteer. Work. Travel. Whatever it might be.
  4. With the inevitability of classes being primarily online, what advice would you give to someone starting 1L this fall? For those who have taken online classes: 1. What worked for you? 2. What didn't work? 3. What would you do differently next time?
  5. I would do it, but of course I would prefer in class teaching. I took some time off after finishing my undergrad, and I could not imagine waiting another year. I am honestly just grateful to have been given an offer of admission, and I would want to make the most out of any opportunity given to me, even if that means online classes for some time. I have also taken a few online courses, both during and after my undergraduate degree, and really enjoyed them. I do think that certain courses translate more effectively to an online format than others.
  6. Indigenous applicant, not sure if that makes a difference! My deadline is April 12, but will be letting them know I’m declining so they can offer the spot to someone else.
  7. Accepted today, will be declining LSAT 154 L2 3.3/4.33
  8. Accepted at TRU, will be declining as I’ve already accepted UBC
  9. Today I received an email that I qualified for an entrance scholarship
  10. Hello! My question is, as a lawyer, what is your work environment like? In particular, is your office noisy, or quiet? Are most people in cubicles or private offices? I am genuinely just curious! I have just been accepted to UBC, and am very excited to begin this journey. I had a bit of a revelation at work today. My efficiency and ability to complete my tasks at work diminishes if my coworkers are having separate conversations around me. I’m not sure if this is normal or if I just have a hard time focusing when I can hear people speaking. I don’t want to say what I do for work, for privacy reasons, but I work in an environment where I am constantly interrupted and need to pause tasks I am doing to help my coworkers or our clients coming in to the office. I know it will likely vary a lot depending on what type of law you work in, and the individual firm. Any insight is appreciated. Thank you!
  11. Accepted at UBC! Will be accepting the offer as this was my top choice. LSAT: 152 (Nov) 154 (Jan) GPA: Around 3.4/4/33 I took an extra year during my undergraduate degree, and also have transfer credits, which made it difficult to self calculate I believe I had a strong personal statement, speaking about my connections to the Aboriginal community, and my reasons for applying to law school. As well, my two reference letters were from 2 individuals very close to me (1 professional 1 academic)
  12. You have to login to myTRU with your TRU-ID, and on the application summary page, under application data there's a line that says: "Decision: _______"
