  1. Also 1L at U of A and just wanted to say I am noticing the same thing with cliques. High school was not even a quarter this bad for me. I have 1 or 2 people I can talk to, but everyone else won’t give me the time of day when I initiate conversation. I am fortunate that I have other friends here outside of law, but I will watch out for anyone who seems to be sitting alone in lectures to see if I can help someone because this is terrible that so many people are having this experience this year.
  2. I got into U of A, Sask, and Manitoba (off waitlist) with a lower L60 (3) and a similar CGPA with a 169 LSAT last year. Can’t say that it’s likely, but it’s not impossible
  3. Depending on how much you want to spend, Simons appears to have some variety in both price and style, but I can’t comment on whether they do tailoring or if they do whether it is any good.
  4. @badgpalol1 i got in with a L60 of 3 and lsat of 169, so it’s possible, but can’t comment on the probability
  5. Offered to join the waitlist today, but have asked to have my application withdrawn as I have already accepted elsewhere, good luck to those still waiting!
  6. CGPA was around 2.8, L60 was 3, LSAT was 169 and got in at u of a, u of s, and u of m.
  7. Imo I think you should write the LSAT if you’re legitimately interested in law, I got accepted to 3 schools with worse GPA numbers. Obviously an uphill battle, but if you never try you’ll never know
  8. You could have a chance at U of A, I got in with the same L2 and 169, but I assume I was holistic so take it with a grain of salt. Saskatchewan and Manitoba might be worth looking into as well, can’t really comment on any other schools from my experience though. Good luck!
  9. Thanks for your reply! On a somewhat related note, do office hours tend to have lineups or are they not that busy? Did you find the professors to be generally helpful with material during office hours or is it a sort of, I’ve been involved with x topic for 20 years and find it easy how can you not understand it already vibe? Just asking as that always tended to be my experience during undergrad.
  10. Is anyone able to provide any information on the mentorship program? The prospectus mentioned that first year students would be paired with an upper year student and a faculty member, but was somewhat vague on details. Are we just randomly matched? Is it just a case of here is this person’s email contact them if you have questions or is there more to it than that?
  11. Thanks for the responses! I guess I’m just worrying I’ll be at a disadvantage due to my background for no reason lol
  12. I am starting 1L in September and was wondering if anyone who has moved from a STEM field to law has noticed any particular challenges with the transition and/or has any tips on how to overcome these challenges and make the transition a little less difficult. Any responses would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Accepted today, was number 6 on the waitlist. Have declined, good luck to everyone still waiting
