  1. The email that was sent out by the U of A stated that Indigenous applicants would be reviewed March 9th and the offers would likely come somewhere around March 16th. Since that date hasn’t come yet, I wouldn’t be concerned at all yet. I can’t comment on your odds based on your stats (I don’t think anyone really can for Indigenous applicants). Good luck! I hope it turns out well for you. TRU is still a great school in a fantastic city!
  2. Thank you for the well thought out and detailed response @Chazz. I came to very similar conclusions (esp. the marginal advantages of each school) based on my own research and what you said helped validate my thoughts. I currently live near Calgary, have friends there, and am very familiar with the city, so it is likely a better option given how the schools are roughly equivalent. Good luck in your decision making process. You have three great options!
  3. I know these two have been compared before; I’m just curious how they contrast regarding my specific interests. I have been accepted into both and am very interested in both Indigenous and environmental/resource law. I’m a practicing forester in Alberta and have 5+ years of experience in resource management and Indigenous engagement. Coming out of school, I would like to focus on either of the two (or both) anywhere Canada. I have no preference in working privately or with government; this is something I would like to explore while in school. I would prefer to live in Calgary, but don’t want to base my decision on that (been to both - Edmonton has its perks too). I would greatly appreciate people’s thoughts on this! Especially from those attending either school.
  4. Thank you! Yes I applied through the Indigenous route; submitting all the requisite material for that pathway.
  5. Accepted this afternoon via email and Launchpad! LSAT 159 GPA: 3.7ish AB resident, 5 years work experience in a supervisory capacity, professional designation (Registered Professional Forester), volunteer experience, Indigenous applicant (although not mentioned I was accepted in this category).
  6. Just received my acceptance letter! First one so very exciting! LSAT: 159 GPA: 3.7ish Over 5 years of work experience at a supervisory level relevant to my desired field of environmental law, professional designation (RPF), extensive volunteer resume, and an Indigenous applicant (although this is not specified on my acceptance letter). My stats on paper weren’t super competitive, but I feel that my work and volunteer experience was a significant factor in the holistic review.
