I can see the dilemma. You obviously do not want to cut your degree short unless you are first accepted into law school.
But you could mention this 3 year graduation option in your PS to the law school(s). I'm pretty sure they like to see a completed undergrad.
My advice is, if you want to be a lawyer, go to law school. If you're looking for money, get your MBA and network, network, network. $100k-200k range is absolutely doable in law. I do not work in Big law and make in that range.
That said, what makes law difficult is the amount of stress and pressure that exists to put out excellent work product in a very short amount of time. When you are junior (and many senior in-house folks have this problem too) you have almost no control over your schedule. Emergencies or time-sensitive issues come in all the time and can have real consequences for people. In my line of work, sometimes it's even the risk of serious injury when it's a serious safety-related issue. In addition, delivering bad news/ news your client does not like/ dealing with very stressed out individuals going through the legal process is very stressful. If you are in an area of law where you are dealing with clients regularly, it can be quite draining and you can think about work long after your day has ended. Depending on the area of law, you can get be burned out very quickly so learning healthy habits is very important.
So, in comparison to jobs out there in policy for example, I can quite firmly say I am underpaid based on my conversations with people in those jobs. However, in comparison to nurses working shifts on COVID wards, I can say I am in no way underpaid. It's all relative so that is why the advice you are going to get is to go to law school if you want to do the work because there are many other jobs that you can do to achieve that salary range.
Helloooo quick question that I emailed admin about but perhaps you fine people have an answer instead.
For the reference letter required for entrance scholarships - do I simply attach it as an appendix to my application form or is my referee suppose to email it directly?
Also - I’m from Ontario so when I hear the word junior and senior matriculation I’m thinking junior is grade 12 and senior was when grade 13 was a thing. Does anyone know what this is referring to? For example, it says “Applicants must have completed, with a superior academic average, at least three full years after junior matriculation or two full years after senior matriculation of a course leading to the degree of BA, BSc, or BComm, or an equivalent degree at Dalhousie or at another degree-granting college or university recognized by the Senate of Dalhousie University.”
Is this meaning undergrad? Like 3 years post under grad or 3 years post high school? I’m confused. Thank you!
