  1. I appreciate the kind responses! I guess I didn't consider how often questions like these must get asked on the forum. so i understand why people may have been irritated. And I truly appreciate the perspective. Feels nice to know I did relatively well, even if I didn't believe it at the time. Also just a note regarding my peer with straight A's - i do not see any malicious intent or any reason he would lie about his grades, so no hard feelings there! We all worked very hard as a group and from what I've seen he's just naturally that smart. And honestly, if I got straight As my first term in law school, I'd want to shout from the rooftops haha. I'm truly happy for him and proud of him. Honestly I think my own perfectionism got the best of me at the time I made this post. I also may have been the tiniest bit jealous 😅 Oh well, cheers everyone! Thanks again.
  2. Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind response. I think I came at this with a perfectionist mindset and worked really hard so I was expecting more from myself (this is my way of saying I was hoping for more As). So it’s good to know that a B+ average is considered good. I will definitely still try for the 1L OCIs and hope for the best. I wish I could say that student was lying, but he sent me a picture of the actual grades, which is what really sent me on this downward spiral, haha. I also have to say on a general note that I’m a little surprised at the response here so far(not counting you, TobyFlenderson). As fellow law students/lawyers/law school applicants I think it’s safe to say that we are generally an ambitious group of people with high expectations for ourselves. The grades I received were good but not great. And with such varying information out there, all I wanted was some perspective on how I really should be feeling about these grades.
  3. Haha, I'm assuming this is your way of saying these are good? I mean, obviously I know these aren't bad grades, but I saw a topic elsewhere on this forum where someone with very similar grades was asking about OCIs and some of the comments said that their chances weren't as good, which gave me the impression that grades are expected to be much higher for things like OCIs. I also have not spoken about grades with my peers at all, except for one student who got straight As. This has given me a lot of mixed thoughts about my own grades. Appreciate your contribution nonetheless!
  4. Hello all, I just recently got my fall grades back and was wondering if I could get some perspective on how they look? I just want to know if I'm off to a good start and how my grades stack against the understanding of average law student grades. It's just so different from undergrad, and all of my peers are obviously so intelligent so I can't help but be a little worried. Constitutional Law B+ Contracts B Crim A Property B Torts A Public Law B+ Thanks in advance!
  5. Ive talked to more than a few TRU grads at Fasken, Blake’s and a bunch of the other larger firms. I’d definitely say it’s not a disadvantage if you’re planning on working in BC. But only if you’re willing to pay the higher tuition.
