  1. Both cities are appealing to me to work in. But the one downside if I had to say would be the potential high cost of living in Vancouver down the road. Tough decision, I'll keep doing more research and give it more thought. Thanks!
  2. I need some help with this option. I am thankful for having been accepted to both, but obviously I need to choose one. I initially wanted to work/live in Calgary after law school, but Vancouver is another great option for me. I primarily want to either go into big law or some criminal law (based on my limited understanding of the career of law at the moment). Is it tough to go work in Calgary after graduating from UVic? How about going to work in Vancouver after graduating from UCalgary? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Got the email today for waitlist. I'll be declining. 163 LSAT, 3.6/4 CGPA Good luck to everyone!
  4. You should read books on how to tackle each section of the exam, such as the Manhattan prep, powerscore, etc (so 3 books total or 1 book that has condensed the three sections into it). This is just to get the fundamentals/tips on how to approach LR, LG, and RC. Try to get a grasp on LG earlier on, since I found that once I did learn the "approach" for it, it stuck with me, thus requiring less practice time (perhaps it will differ somewhat for you). Once you have a basic understanding of how to approach each section, I would then run practice exams 1-2 times a week, while doing individual sections (perhaps 2 LR sections, 1 LG, and 1RC) during the days between. The sections you should focus on of course are the weaker ones, with LR being an exception (focus on this for sure since it is a big chunk of the exam). But do not neglect your "stronger" sections either, since those you can maximize your overall score. To sum it up, once you have an idea on how to approach the questions in each of the sections, it's all about practice. Start from earlier Prep-tests and work your way to the newer ones for relevancy purposes. What I liked to do was use the older Prep tests to practice individual sections, whilst using the "newer" prep tests for simulated practice exams. Good Luck!
  5. 2015 macbook pro is fine...more than fine for performance. Thus, I would get an Ipad to supplement your work, rather than as a laptop replacement.
  6. I'm not 100% sure if I will be able to make it, but if i do I'll join!
  7. This may be a dumb question lol, but once you get a job at a big law firm, does which law school you attended have any effect on your chances on becoming a partner? Thanks
  8. accepted off waitlist, cgpa 3.6, lsat 163
  9. Nevermind, I just tried and it worked lol. But it didnt work till recently, and the only change that's been made was that I completed all of my submissions of supporting documents and deposit. So perhaps either that was the reason or USASK just happened to activate mine now. Fyi, I have received no email from them on the email, so youre not missing out on emails.
  10. I think its normal, I called and asked them. Later in the summer is when they will set everything up i believe, though the lady wasn't completely firm on her answer. You could try calling them, but fyi, I was accepted in Dec. and my email still does not work.
  11. Offers are made via email. In addition, your application on their website will also be updated.
  12. i feel like unless you attend the "top" law schools in Ontario, it'll be harder to find such articling position in Ontario. I'll be choosing UCalgary or USask law. Really leaning towards Sask though (also know someone who graduated there and loved it).
  13. Can somebody do one for U of Saskatchewan? Thanks.
