First week begins Sept 7 (Thursday) and there's nothing important scheduled for those first two days imo. So you essentially would have until September 11. Even then, missing the first week isn't insurmountable

will students be assigned readings on thursday (sept 7th) and friday?

Don't worry about readings until after your first class, unless a professor has explicitly told you to do some.

Will you go to Ottawa if accepted after Sept 5?

I would like to, but it will be a lot of fun moving back so quickly.

Oh man, it feels so good to finally tell my family and friends I made it in. If you think I was active on this forum expressing how badly I wanted it, you should've seen me in person. 

Thanks for everything though folks. You all helped me through a very long and stressful cycle. Can't feel more fortunate to have everyone behind me

So happy for you dude! Hoping there's a wee bit more movement up until the end of the week. Awesome to hear that you were admitted!

Try to help others if you have time.

I owe so much to others for putting up with me throughout the whole cycle. Looking back, I was very annoying LOL. I feel very fortunate nevertheless to have the people I do in my life - and online :D

    • A rejection email. I think it's beneath the Supreme Court of Canada to tell people to 'please fuck off,' but, well.... we look to substance, not form.  I believe the Court informs applicants not invited for an interview in March. I wouldn't expect anything before then.
    • Yeah I wouldn’t worry about it. When schools say they take the highest LSAT I’ve yet to see evidence that they don’t mean it. 
    • I’m sorry you’re going through this. As you know, law school is, without a doubt, a stressful environment for many if not most people. But I know plenty of people who entered law school with depression, and other mental illnesses, that have excelled nonetheless. I think it’s premature to frame this question in terms of your future clients. The real question here is whether you will be okay in law school. I assume you are already getting the professional help you need—to state the blindingly obvious, suicidal thoughts are extremely serious and, while I have no experience here, I wouldn’t do anything until you have addressed those. Anyway — ADHD and depression are not uncommon in law school. And I don’t think you’d be making a bad decision for anyone else by going to law school. And, on the contrary, if you have a genuine desire to be a lawyer, I think it would be a shame to talk yourself out of the opportunity unnecessarily. If you are accepted, perhaps consider deferring for a year to reevaluate?  I guess all I am saying is that (i) depression doesn’t preclude you going to law school succeeding and being a great lawyer but (ii) in the short term you need to put your health first, especially if you are having suicidal thoughts.
    • Hmmm. I still haven't received an email from TRU. I didn't even get one when my file was complete. I will probably give them a call this week to see what is happening.
    • Hey @learning31, the following are their stats: 152, 3.77 L2, 3.2 CGPA 151, 3.6 L2, 3.3 CGPA 154, 3.1 CGPA Since last year they looked at L3, none of the above L2s are confirmed.
