  1. Go to Scotia. They offer prime to everyone across Canada. Branches may not know about it, but it's a national program. They also give you two year payment deferral AFTER ARTICLING, whereas other banks certainly won't do that. You'll get all of their best credit cards and debit accounts for free as well at Scotia. As for shopping around... Don't bother going to BMO. TD and Scotia are definitely the most competitive for law students
  2. Has anyone here successfully deferred an acceptance? What are some valid reasons to defer?
  3. In Canada we call them summary and indictable offenses
  4. Do you have to apply for anything for admissions scholarships, or do they just reach out to you?
  5. Calling the admissions office takes 5 minutes. If it's a no, which it most likely will be, then yes move on and focus on the next cycle. Asking never hurts, even if it's a 1% chance
  6. I would just contact Wanda. If you have a really high GPA and a really good reason to need to go to law school next year, and some sort of explanation as to why you've recently come to reason that you want to become a lawyer, and that cannot wait, then I can see UNB as being one of, if not the only, school in Canada to make that exception. Even then, I'd say your chances are real slim and you'd have to be a top notch candidate (3.9, 170) with great reasons for the above... PLUS they'd have to have a spot open that they don't want to fill with someone on the waitlist for some reason. Doesn't hurt to ask though.
  7. So you're assuming all scholarships have been sent out then?
  8. Is there a requirement to even practice law?
  9. Yeah I'm not sure, but truthfully I've gotten into schools I'd probably prefer to go to over Lakehead, so I'm not too bummed about it. In Ontario I got rejected from UofT and I'm waiting on Windsor, but I got into UNB, Sask, TRU, and Manitoba. Still waiting on my top choices, like Calgary, UBC and UVic... Hopefully one of them accept me
  10. I'm assuming @LittleMissMolly would want to replace her MacBook with a new MacBook. Going from PC to Mac and vice versa is kind of a pain. I've done it, and it's manageable, but if I'm going to shell out any money to buy a new laptop it's going to be the premium to purchase a new MacBook because that's what I prefer. It's also lasted me 7 years so far since my last $1500 purchase, so I have faith in them. Those cheap laptops will not last you that long- I can assure you that.
  11. Rejected last night, as expected. UofT was a longshot for me and I just wanted to throw my hat in the ring. cGPA: 3.7 LSAT: 159
  12. How does one become a law professor? What is the logical path?
  13. What's your rationale there? And how far East are you talking?
