LSAT was very good, GPA wasn't great. No connections to Saskatchewan.

Based on the letter they sent it seems like you can accept the offer and still go to another school instead, only you lose your deposit. Is that right? Just want to make sure I understand everything before I make my decision.

That's exactly how it works--you will lose your deposit $ if you pay it and decide to go elsewhere. You'll appreciate the law and policy behind this in first year contracts.

 

Edit: I didn't mean that in a condescending way. I'm studying for my contracts exam, so reading your post set off a lot of lightbulbs in my head.

Yup. Got waitlisted with 163.

 

Oh wow... waitlisted with a 3.45cGPA/163?!

 

Was your B2 higher in the year you were waitlisted? Do you have Sask connection?

 

This kind of talk is making me nervous as my stats are quite borderline.

No Sask connection and no change in marks. My B2 is around 3.52. 

 

But don't worry...I'm pretty sure that my getting waitlisted had more to do with me applying very late in the cycle or screwing up my  application.

Ever heard of "willingness to pay"? :-P

 

They lag far behind most (all?) other Canadian school's tuition numbers, and poor saps from all over will pay whatever for this unbelievably amazing awesomeness covered degree, so why wouldn't they jack the price up?

 

It is hilarious seeing them try to justify it in dubious ways though, and then seeing the student body bitch about it and the new dean justify it all over again.  If only the truth was politically correct, right?

 

It was even funnier getting an email last year that some committee had "approved" the tuition hike.

 

Edit- we already had a recent tuition hike, the one you are talking about has not been approved yet, but I would bet on it happening.

Oh I definitely understand why they do it, and I'm happy I'll be through LS before we hit US levels of crazy price

I was accepted back on Dec 11 as well.

 

LSAT: 162

GPA: 3.59/4.5, best 2 were 3.89 in y3/4

Sask Connection: 1 Grandparent born there, with family

And, if it's worth anything I will also have an MA by the time of enrollment.

 

I will likely be declining as I was just accepted to the University of Manitoba, my home province. Best of luck to everyone!

    • Thank youuuu  @Leviticus you're too kind!   And @Lawlsohard Anytime! 
    • I'm interested in articling with the Federal DOJ and I've heard really positive things about the experience. Is there much difference between the regional offices? I'm interested in Prosecutions but part of my desire to go to the Federal DOJ is the option to do regulatory work and work on the advisory side during articling.   I'm currently living in a Prairie province but I've been thinking about returning to Ontario and working in the Toronto or Ottawa-Gatineau office if that's an option. I'm unsure if the Vancouver office has already done the recruit but I believe that office recruits in August. Can anyone advise about the different offices, the work they do or the hireback rates for articling students? The Federal DOJ spots in my Province are considered as great articling spots so I was wondering if that's the typical view across Canada.    Thanks!  
    • There is such a wide range of what constitutes practicing law that it is hard to give you a straight answer. For example, the kind of work that a corporate lawyer does compared to a criminal lawyer is night and day. But, in general, I think the common misconception of activist-type students is that they seem to think that by becoming a lawyer they can make a positive change just by virtue of their future position. While that may be true for some lawyers that has not been true for me -- at the end of the day I take instructions from a client, and its the client who will ultimately decide whether or not the work I do for him or her will help others and make the world a better place. To me being  a lawyer will always just be another job. I'm only concerned about helping a client with doing what he or she thinks will improve his or her life within my narrow role, and whether that will create any positive impact for the rest of society is irrelevant to me. I think your question is based on the false premise that being a lawyer is somehow different than other careers in the professional services, i.e., accountant, engineer, architect, doctor, and etc, when really it is just another profession in its own bubble.  Besides the above, I enjoy what I do more than not. Some weeks are good while others are bad. I know I would not be able to make a comparable income with my skill set doing something else. Not having to worry about money in the same way as less fortunate people gives me a substantial amount of peace of mind. Although I work long hours I still have time to occasionally volunteer and do other public interest work, although COVID-19 has taken that away from me for the time being. My advice would be to contact someone in your family or social group to shadow lawyers from different practices to get an idea of what being a lawyer is actually like.
