  1. What law school is accepting the March LSAT? I have not seen that mentioned anywhere on the forum and it might be helpful information for others.

    Please keep the extraneous discussion to PM or another thread. We have had to delete some posts. Let's at least try to keep these threads useful for future applicants. Thank you.

    No News = Good News?

    Most schools have not even started their waitlists yet.

    Law school attire

    Just make sure that it fits well. Lawyers will know that you're a student, but it isn't pretentious to expect a suit to fit well.

    Changing Articling

    To the OP: please read diplock's post. Those of you advocating that the OP 'be selfish' and 'jump ship' should also read it. There is a way to do this, if it is absolutely necessary, but, as diplock said, there are not only rights, but also obligations here.

    In need of advice. To be or not to be?

    That isn't what you said earlier. Your friends experience is not that of most lawyers I know. Let's not exaggerate here. Most lawyers take their allotted vacation time. It's true that, for some, there may be occasional calls or emails from the office while on vacation but it certainly isn't overwhelming to the extent that it ruins your vacation. I've been practicing for several years and have always been able to take all of my vacation, with very limited interruptions while I'm away.

    Not commenting on what the OP should or should not do, but just wanted to comment that 4 weeks paid vacation isn't unusual in law. I got that in my first year of practice.

    Burnout in the profession

    I know hundreds of lawyers in many different types of practice/employment situations. I don't know even one who would have the type of problem that @happydude describes, as "If I were out of town when my firm needed something urgently, that wouldn't go over well." This is not common and is not something that law students and prospectives should be expecting in their futures.

    When Do Rejections Go Out 2019?

    You can check the individual school forums for Rejected threads in previous cycles to get an idea. No one here will know exactly when it will happen this time around. Closing this before it gets further off track.

    Clerkships 2019

    No. I know that some interview offers have gone out. These can be ongoing for the next couple of months. There are always some justices who are more on top of it than others.

    Ask a 1L - USask Edition

    If you don't supply a transcript until June, how are they going to evaluate your application? The answer is they aren't. Final transcripts may have to be in by June but that is going to be for students who are already accepted or who have applied and submitted an earlier transcript. If you are applying now, arrange for your transcript to be sent ASAP. Acceptances have been going out now for over a month. Waitlists are typically formed in May.
  15. I would imagine that if the posting was for a GC position that it would specify that, no?
