  1. GPA: 3.61 (with 6 worst courses dropped - I've finished by BA/undergrad) LSAT: 167 My index score is 921.9. Thoughts?
  2. How do you indicate to them what your final score is? Would I be able to apply now with my lower score, and then get 162 in November and potentially get accepted?
  3. For me, given my CGPA I would need a 162 to get in. This is based off of their admissions chart for 2020.
  4. UPDATE: I didn't get the sufficient minimum score to apply to UVic. What do I do now? Should I apply now, or do November and apply once I get the score from the Nov exam?
  5. What are some good tutors you recommend? Preferably a tutor that you have had good experience with and actually helped you in achieving your target score as a result of his methods. Please link their profile or website as well.
  6. cGPA: 3.41 (out of 4.33) My last 20 courses GPA, which TRU apparently looks at: 3.56 LSAT: 157 My personal statement is fairly strong and I will also soon have a Master's Degree (currently in Grad School, will finish soon). I will include that in the application/statement. What are my chances of acceptance?
  7. Yes it has changed. I just checked. "GPA is weighted 50% and LSAT is weighted 50% in our evaluation process." https://www.uvic.ca/law/admissions/jdadmissionfaqs/index.php
  8. How long after completing your bar exams do you typically get called to the bar, assuming you did well on your exams and fulfilled all the other requirements?
  9. Already did. But you do realize that it's important to inquire about future job opportunities before even going down the path of law school, right? I don't want to enter law school and get some useless law degree (for all I know) that won't make me any good money. Which is why I ask important questions about potential future employment before even going down this long path. It's only rational to inquire. Thanks for the clarifications on the job requirements though. I seem to get it now. How so? I understand that there's technically no bar exam, but there is the PTLC barrister and solicitor exams after articling. So you're still not technically a lawyer after passing these exams, which are the final hurdle? What more do you need to do to be a member of the law society?
  10. Thank you for this. So these are the applicant requirements listed in the job posting: Must be a member in good standing or eligible for membership in the Law Society of British Columbia. Legal Counsel 1: 5 or less years of call. Please note that Lawyers with an excess of 5 years of call to the bar will not be considered. Experience in the conduct of litigation at a provincial superior court. Can you help me understand what these requirements mean? I can't seem to understand any of these points. I assume the first point means that it's not necessary to have passed the bar but you must be eligible. (Or you can have passed the bar). The second point I assume means that you're eligible if you've never worked as a legal counsel before (or under 5 years of working as one). The last point I don't get. Could you have achieved that experience in your articling? Or must it have been an actual job? Was I correct with the first two points?
  11. Where does it say this? All I see is the job description and the "primary functions and responsibilities" of the job. Nowhere does it say what requirements or how much experience the applicant needs to get the job.
  12. Yes, sorry. I should clarify I mean after doing the nine months of articling and then passing the bar exams. I edited the original post.
