Recommended Posts

I just got in this morning!  Right after getting my VISA processed for the Windsor Dual.  Now I have to make the tough ass decision between the two schools:(.  I've already signed a 1 year lease here in Windsor, got my homework and I'm starting class this Monday.  I've also fallen in love with the city and my classmates rock...also, the upper years have been more helpful then I could have ever imagined!. Arg, this weekend will be a BIATCH!!!!!!

 

Windsor Dual ~ $40,000/year

Sask ~$10,500/year

Nice!!

 

Congrats!

 

Since you've already gotten settled into Windsor I can definitely imagine this feels like a tough decision. In the end though... you're looking at saving over 100k by going to UofS... 100k... Just to say that again... One. Hundred. Thousand. Dollars. If you have the option to avoid that kind of debt I think you'd be crazy not to.

Not that it really matters when compared to the dual program, but tuition has been increased this year to approximately $12,200.

Congrats!

 

Enjoy Sask!

 

There's nothing like not having to deal with money matters constantly on your mind while studying... I'm  In the dual and i'm seriously leaning towards declining due cost after crunching the numbers.

MONDAY??

 

School starts a few weeks earlier in the US than it does in Canada. And UDM (which partners with Windsor for its dual JD program) is a US school.

Made the decision to go to Saskie!  I cringe when I think of the amount of leg work I need to do between now and Sept 3rd.

Pua, reading your posts/messages we've had, I can't believe you are going to Sask! I think you made the right decision and look forward to meeting you this fall!

Just got the acceptance email too. First acceptance, so relieved!

 

CGPA 69%

L2 82%

LSAT 168

0 Sask connection

Hey congrats! I'm on a similar boat in terms of cGPA (c+ as well) and L2 GPA. I just wanted to know does UofS consider cgpa at all? May sound like a dumb question but I can not find it on their website. Thanks a bunch

I'm pretty sure they don't consider cgpa at all. The reason I indicated my cgpa was to stress that point.

For anyone wondering about the admission stats at this stage, I just got in with a ~3.5/163, decent ECs and no sask connection. I'll be declining, good luck everyone.

 

Hey DSman, when did you apply in the cycle?

 

I would think a 3.5 163 would warrant an earlier acceptance?

    • January LSAT as well?
    • Nope, I wrote the January LSAT. 
    • I had identical stats and was admitted long long time ago (2013). 
    • How long ago were you referred to adcom?
    • I have 2 little kids in daycare (aged 1 and 3) and it works, but just barely. My husband works long hours in a different industry and we stagger hours so that the kids aren't spending long days in care -- I drop off around 9 before heading into the office and he picks up around 4:30. I would suggest taking your kid's personality into account when deciding between a daycare and a nanny -- my baby would likely be fine with longer days, but my elder child would find it difficult. My elder would probably be happiest with a nanny, but also probably benefits the most from the daycare setting (socialization, having to deal with multiple teachers, structure).  Like all things kid-related, it totally depends on the kid.  The real problem with daycare is that the kid can't go there if they're ill. And little kids in a daycare setting get sick all the time. Seriously, all the time. I've received 3 calls to pick up my sick child from daycare in the month of February alone, and the kid has been too sick to return for several days each time. I'm a litigator, and appear in court at least a few days each week -- it's kind of a disaster. I am in a very family-friendly office, on an 80% schedule, and have family support and it's still a disaster. My spouse is generally unable to respond to the daycare call to pick up the kids, so it tends to fall to me or the grandparents, who pitch in more than is reasonable to expect.
