  1. Thank you all for sharing your experiences and advice! I'm going to go ahead with it! I'm looking at it more as an investment now, so I'm not as worried about the amount I'll be borrowing. I'm driven and I work hard, so I'm confident it'll pay off in the long-term, and as for living a lavish life on borrowed money - I'm definitely not the type to do that! Yesterday I received my notice of assessment , I have been offered a generous amount of student loans, which means I won't have to dip into my PSLOC nearly as much. Really happy and excited for what's to come!
  2. I guess my question is whether the amount of debt will be overwhelming after I graduate, or if it will be less significant in comparison to what I’ll be making. I’ve heard of large variations in starting salaries, as @conge mentioned. Yeah, I would like to go to law school regardless, but other options could be working and saving up, or reapplying and trying to secure financial aid. I would rather start sooner than later, but I’m wondering if I’m being naive thinking $75,000 is a manageable amount of debt to take on.
  3. Hey everyone! I’ve been accepted into a law school this year and I’ve paid my deposit and started to secure financing. I’ve applied for Student Loans and a Professional Student Line of Credit. Today I was approved for a $135,000 PSLOC. I haven’t been awarded any scholarships or bursaries and my personal savings are minimal. I’m really excited to go back to school and I strongly believe law is a career I can see myself excelling in, but I can’t help but worry about the massive amount of debt I’m about to take on. I created a budget and anticipate to spend approx. $25,000 per academic year, which could mean $75,000 of debt when I graduate. Is this a manageable amount of debt, or am I about to make a huge mistake by taking on this much? Thank you
  4. Waitlist emails were already sent out, so if you haven’t heard back yet, expect either a rejection or to be put on the waitlist later on this summer. Yep, definitely slow moving. Good luck!
  5. What resources did all of you high scorers use?! Thank you
  6. Hi everyone! I'm a bit bummed out that I didn't get into school this year, but I'm really not surprised... My LSAT score was lower than 150. I live in the East Coast and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good course to take online? I took, but didn't fully complete, the 7Sage starter course. I struggled with finding the time to really divulge the concepts and, judging by the motivation, I had trouble staying focused and getting through the material. It probably wasn't the best resource for me. I am probably in need of a course that keeps me more accountable; a schedule would be nice. Maybe even a tutor? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Cheers.
  7. Received an email that my status changed, logged in and saw that I was rejected. GPA 3.7/4.3 LSAT 144 Good luck to everyone else waiting to hear back! This has been a long haul.
  8. Any idea the number of applicants waitlisted each year? And how much it generally moves?
  9. If all the seats are full and my status hasn't changed, does that mean I'm waitlisted? Has anyone else still not been accepted/rejected?
  10. Thanks for your reply and I’m sorry that you didn’t get in. I hope you get into your next choice. Stats aren’t everything; determination and perseverance is what matters most!
  11. What was your status updated to? If you don't mind me asking
  12. Those who've been accepted under the regular category, would you mind sharing your deadline for accepting your offer? I'm wondering when I can expect the next wave of acceptances to go out. Cheers!
