  1. I was a waitlisted applicant last year, and didn't hear I was waitlisted until late-June. It seems that they put out quite a few acceptances in May/June, so unfortunately, there is a good chance some of us might be in for a bit of a wait! Not exactly sure of the reason, but they seem to run on a later timeline than many other schools.
  2. Would definitely accept an offer from USask as well 😊
  3. I didn’t receive this email either, and wrote the January LSAT.
  4. Excellent. Just the moment I’ve been waiting for.
  5. This is good to know, I appreciate your honesty and your response!
  6. https://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/61353-accepted-sask-2020/ Taking a look at last year's acceptance thread will likely help you gauge your chances. I recall there being a few people accepted later in the cycle with similar stats, but I'm not too sure about the SK connection in those instances.
  7. This may be my lack of legal experience speaking, but is it typical that firms such as these have a sort of reputation that students can easily become aware of or would career advising within a law school be able to provide information on a specific firm's retention rates? Or maybe networking is the key to finding this out? I can't say enough how much I appreciate your response, as well as the others who've contributed. I've seen some of your contributions on other family law related posts and they're extraordinarily insightful! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
  8. Hello all, 0L here with hopes of an acceptance to begin law school in 2021. I am an applicant with several years of work experience in family and youth services. This experience has led me to take a great interest in the area of family law, which I hope to eventually practice in (although, I am open to other practice areas as well). With several years ahead of me before beginning to practice, I am hoping to gain some wisdom/insights/things you wish you knew before you entered the field of family law. There are several very useful threads on the forum pertaining to family law, but many seem to be geared towards articling students and practicing lawyers. However, this forum is vast and I would appreciate being pointed in the direction of any useful threads I may have overlooked in my search. I am primarily interested in knowing the following, but would appreciate any related insights as well: 1) Recommendations for opportunities during law school that would assist in experiencing the field as a student 2) High-level pros/cons of family law (I have heard burnout rate can be high in this area) 3) Reality of having a positive impact on children in this field - I would be entering this field, with some hope that I could assist in lessening the impact of major disruptions in family life on children, is this approach misguided or naive? 4) Any other advice or things you wish you knew before entering the field of family law! A big thank you to anyone willing to share their feedback or experiences.
  9. Has there been any info shared regarding what September, 2021 may look like (i.e. in-person, hybrid, online etc.)? I imagine it's likely too early to tell, but thought you may have heard some chatter within the college.
  10. I’m definitely no expert, but if there isn’t an area to actually upload your items, I would contact the USask Admissions team to see if they can assist. When I submitted my application, all of the supplemental items were showing right away, with an option to upload documents.
  11. I believe noting it on your application was sufficient when I was emailing with them, Michelle (from USask Admissions) confirmed that they pull your score after the latest exam date marked on your application.
  12. If you have notified them that you are writing in January, they will pull another report to add the score to your application following score release in February. If you didn’t note on your submitted application that you are writing in Jan, I would send them an email to ensure the new score isn’t overlooked or missed. Always better to be on the safe side in my opinion!
  13. I haven’t attempted any communication via phone, but have emailed and received a reply within a few days both times. I did receive an auto-reply mentioning they normally experience higher than usual email volumes at this time of year, so maybe that is cause for delay? The email below is where I’ve had luck. Hopefully you get in touch with someone soon! [email protected]
