  1. Thank you all SO SO MUCH! I truly appreciate your posts. My undergrad was in Family Studies, and most of my work experience has been in public service. It sounds like an MPA/JD could benefit me, but could also raise some eyebrows in private law... and the MPA won't be a deal breaker... An MBA is also an option, and an MPA is still an option years after I complete my JD... wow, I have a lot to think about but I am much less stressed/worried. Thanks again. 🥰
  2. I am excited to say I've been admitted to the JD program at UNB, and the MPA program at Dalhousie... (I applied to the MPA/JD at Dalhousie but I have yet to hear from the law school. If I'm admitted to the JD at Dal, I'll be eligible for the dual-program). I have decided that I will not take an MPA on it's own. I want a legal education and career. But I'm stuck on whether or not I should take a JD on it's own, or pursue the dual-program if I am presented the opportunity. JD on it's own: 3 years, plus articling, and careers are open to be a Lawyer/Attorney, work Private or Public, and of course, work into policy is an option! MPA / JD: 4 years, plus articling, roughly +$13,000 than the JD alone, and careers are open to... the same as the above? Or, more...? Work in Municipal/Government, policy counsel and/or legal counsel, Management within Legislative Services, Court Program Coordinator, etc. I'm worried that I'm attracted to this dual-option because it sounds Boss A.F. Is it actually going to provide any benefit to me in my career and, is that benefit minimal or actually going to be worth the extra time and money? Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts!
  3. Hey! Congrats - I received my acceptance email the same day! My letter states March 15 though so, double check yours!! (For anyone wondering, 157 LSAT, GPA calculated by OLSAS 3.62, applied late December).
  4. Hey! I'm not 100% certain but, I also applied through OLSAS and I can see both of my November 2020 and January 2021 LSAT Scores in there. When I submitted my OLSAS application in October, I only entered that I would be taking the November LSAT. I decided later to add January. I went into OLSAS a few weeks back, and updated the LSAT section, "dates you are taking the test" (something along those lines) and added January 2021. Save the changes! (Also congrats - that's a fantastic score!).
  5. Hey! Yes - 157, score release today. I agree. I think I'll go for round two...
  6. I am considering the January 2021 LSAT (plus a tutor) to score 160+. Should I make this financial investment? I cannot calculate a consecutive Best 2 / Last 2 Semesters (due to co-op terms and an exchange). I searched for conversions but, am not sure how to figure out my GPA on a 4.3 scale. I think it would translate to a 3.8/4.3 CGPA. I completed my undergrad degree in 2016, working full time since, and roughly 2 years volunteering.
  7. I am considering the January 2021 LSAT (plus a tutor) to score 160+. Should I make this financial investment? Queens will not look at my best two/last two semesters, since they are not consecutive (due to co-op terms and an exchange), so I didn't bother calculating that. I graduated my undergraduate degree in 2016, working full time since, and roughly 2 years volunteering.
