  1. I probably wouldn't recommend pouring an entire year's worth of tuition money for education knowing that you're not planning on finishing or using afterwards anyhow. It's not uncommon at all for people to take a year off to work while applying for law school, I'd recommend that as it'll a) give you real-world experience, b) help you save a little for law school and c) give you some experience to put on your application.
  2. Oof, given this week's news regarding Laurentian, this was not the best example to pull out of the hat today 😂 https://www.narcity.com/en-ca/news/ottawa/laurentian-university-is-reportedly-shedding-programs-to-cut-costs https://www.parrysound.com/news-story/10371996-laurentian-university-cuts-over-60-programs/
  3. ^what they said, definitely. Also, but this is just my personal opinion, it’s just a waste to have to walk away from three years of study and hard work with nothing to show for it but being $20-30k in the hole. Just get the piece of paper, it’s not like it can hurt. In fact, it can only help.
  4. I applied and got in this year as a third-year applicant, you should be fine. But again, when in doubt contact a school official. They'll tell you exactly.
  5. Huh, mine doesn't. Then again, I can only see the unofficial transcript on my student portal, maybe the official one mentions it. Or maybe it's different between schools? In any case, OP would do well to check with their school as to whether major changes are on the transcript if they're really worried.
  6. Will they even be able to see that you changed majors, though? I'm pretty sure they only see your transcript, which just says what major you're in now, the courses you took and the marks you got in them. I'm sure it won't be too detrimental, if it even matters at all. Adcomms understand that not everyone is going to be in their perfect major right off the bat and that switching around is normal. Perhaps someone on this forum can attest further, though. They'd know better than me, I'm just guessing here. Best of luck.
  7. Western seems pretty adamant that 1L at least will be in-person, barring any provincial orders.
  8. I feel like as long as you’re not... a) enrolled at both York and the other school at the same time come fall 2022 (I don’t think just waiting for convocation to roll around counts as being enrolled, but you might want to check to be absolutely safe) b) lacking the minimum number of credits to be accepted into law school and to keep your offer (usually equivalent to three full-time years) ...you’ll be fine. If someone on here can confirm, that would be great.
  9. I think it's pretty close to simultaneous, but I've heard of people getting their emails after their SC updated (usually not more than few hours gap). Anything longer than that and you'd want to give them a call.
  10. Yeah I agree, I should have said "apply to transfer" haha. Don't know why I said that.
  11. Definitely put it down if you can. This cycle was tough with the increased number of applicants, and with COVID-19 dragging on like it is, it's only going to get tougher. TRU doesn't seem like a bad school and like you said, worst comes to worst you can always transfer.
  12. Ahhhh I see, thank you so much! I'm really surprised to hear that there's such a prominent Aboriginal law presence on Bay Street, I thought it would have been almost fully based in the non-profit/NGO/public sector. Ah well, the more I know, I guess. Thanks again!
  13. Oh dip, I thought they were synonymous. My bad. Just curious, what is the difference? Just so I know for next time.
  14. Most schools have Indigenous law courses, with some of them mandatory in some programs. But I feel like if you want to go into Indigenous law as a career, you might be better off going to a school that specializes in it as opposed to just offering courses. Lakehead, from what I've heard, is probably your go-to school for Indigenous law in that case. It's one of their three primary focuses (environmental law and small-area practice are the other two). I don't know much about their Indigenous law curriculum besides that, but for a school that explicitly asks you to state how you relate to one or more of those three focuses in your PS in order to get into their school, I'd say it must be pretty important to them. If you're considering outside of Ontario at all, UVic has an Indigenous law degree (I think it's called a JID?), so if that's something that interests you I'd look into that. That's all I know of for now. Best of luck!
  15. Nothing but good things to say about Yoni. Highly recommend.
