Certificate framing

Recommended Posts

Any ideas for where best to get the LSUC certificates and notary certificate framed that won't cost an arm and a leg?

Michaels. And there is usually a 50% off a single item coupon every month. Check online for their flyer.

I'm curious, do most of you have degrees etc. framed and on your office wall? I think mine are in the basement somewhere. Not out of any sort of modesty or anything more procrastination/laziness. I worked with a guy who had just about everything he had ever done framed and on his wall. He'd been called in 3 provinces, worked on an admin tribunal for a while and was in the Forces so he had it all up on the wall of his office. Being a repressed wasp I always thought it was a bit much but clients seemed to like it based upon the conversations I overheard. I think it was as much a conversation starter as at a look at me.

Mine are in the basement. My wife did get them framed for me.

 

But i never have people outside my branch come visit my office. I go to them.

My solicitor certificate and notary certificate are in frames that I think I got at Walmart. Barrister's certificate required a special frame at Michael's because it's a weird size. All told, framing cost me about $20.

Does approx $300 combined qualify as an arm and a leg?

What about $400 for just the LSUC certificate?

...but it does say "Law Society" right on the frame... so....

 

Oooooohhhhh shinyyyyyy

 

:rolling:

On a tenuously related subject... does anybody want a $150-dollar-LSUC scarf with pictures of Osgoode's stained glass on it?

...I'm actually asking. Does anybody in the world want this?

The description of this (and the other scarf similarly): "Limited edition ladies black silk scarf..." troubles me. Both because of the term "ladies" and because it specifies a gender for the scarf.

 

Almost makes me want to call up and ask when they'll be getting mens - excuse me, gentlemens - limited edition silk scarves in...

 

Not that I'd spend this much on a scarf I'd almost never wear (the very rare occasion when it's very cold and I have to stand outside wearing a suit and overcoat?).

    • It is really hard to say whether any person has "good" EC's or not. I feel like mine are good as well, but I feel like most people do. However, it is certainly no secret that if a school loves your EC's, you have a better chance. You CGPA and L2 are both weak, but if you score an LSAT above the 80th percentile, you could get in somewhere I probably. (depending how bad you CGPA really is)   Goodluck!
    • Hi everyone,  I was just about to submit my OLSAS app but noticed the wording of the question: Were you ever required to withdraw from a law school or other postsecondary program?   My situation is that I left a 5 week post-secondary program a couple days early due to some personal circumstances. The withdraw was on my own request, not the institution's requirement. So do I still respond yes to the question?    
    • Yeah, above or around 242 (this is not a number confirmed by U of A that I’ve ever seen), they automatically admit you in dec/Jan/feb once your application is complete. And then once they see how many of those people accepted, they start offering to the 241 and 240, etc. They still consider those regular applicants so that’s why they’re on the chart. 
    • It was May after undergrad. I was in Naples on my first trip overseas. I couldn’t celebrate because my then gf, who I was traveling with (and later broke up with during that trip), hadn’t gotten into any law schools yet (and never would). But I remember the feeling. It was pure euphoria - all of the anxiety and uncertainty just melted away and exposed a contentment that, at least for a few months, I was in the exact career position that I had always hoped for. If I had a choice between that feeling of acceptance or the high of great ecstasy, I’d choose getting into law school a fair amount of the time. 
    • https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-transcript/ The "Transcript Arrangements" section applies to non-Ontario institutions, while the "Transcripts from an Ontario University or College" section applies to Ontario institutions. For Ontario institutions, OLSAS only needs to receive the transcript request before the application deadline, not the actual transcript. I submitted my transcript request along with my application on October 31, the day before the deadline. Everything was fine.
