Congrats to everyone who has been accepted already! Any idea when they'll be sending acceptance emails? I'm wondering if I'll get a call if accepted since I don't live in Canada.

I don't completely remember but I think she said in the next few days, and then a rushed acceptance package in the mail in the next week or so. 

 

Good luck!

Congrats to all admitted! Can only imagine your excitement.


With that being said - can we change this title to 2018, to match the rest of the accepted threads/avoid confusion?

Whoops sorry about that, I suppose 2018 would make sense. In my excitement I didn't think much! 

 

Do I need to message the admins to do this? I don't think I can on my own. If anyone admins are reading this changing it to 2018 is fine by me.

New to this forum, so maybe this has already been addressed ... but do they typically give out all first round offers in one day or it lasts a couple days?

I think it generally lasts a few days, just judging by past accepted threads + past posts on their blog.

    • Literally nobody here claimed that lawyering was the most intellectually demanding profession out there (by the way I had started writing this response before getting ninja'd by many others above--I don't mean to dogpile but fuck it, I will finish writing and posting this). You had initially written that lawyers tend to have average IQs, which is patently absurd. Then you edited that same post to say that their IQs tend to be in the high 120s, which would put them in the 95th-98th percentile, but characterized this as "not that high." Then you again wrote that "anyone" could be a lawyer. Everyone here is well aware that you don't need to have the horsepower of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist to be a competent lawyer. But whenever someone claims that any average Joe can do the job, that tells me they have very limited experience interacting with average Joes. Before I entered this field I repeatedly told a friend who works as an associate at a Sister that one of the attractive things about law that I think people in his position take for granted is being able to interact with reasonably intelligent people who will be able to engage in basic logical reasoning, because this isn't the reality for many people in terms of what they have to deal with on a daily basis. In addition to my own experiences validating that premise, I've increasingly seen posts on this forum that confirm for me that many people do, in fact, take this for granted. And honestly I'm pushing back because this sort of worldview and perception of the abilities of most people has broader implications for public policy, how we design systems and products, etc. Everyone who thinks this way needs to learn to expect less from people. /rant
    • Thank you so much.
    • Lawyers with those degrees have almost certainly long forgotten that material. The only reason I posted this is because, in response to neutral comments I made, people have let loose a deluge of insults towards myself, biochemistry and science generally. This whole thread is hilarious - a sort of smug belief that law requires some special innate intelligence because law is some grand intellectual endeavor. That's why all the average students from my high school chose law after having studied civics 101 in undergrad.
    • Beyond this misrepresentation of other forum members’ postings on the subject, you’re also comparing a job (that is, of lawyer) to a field of academic study (theoretical physics). Obviously this isn’t a fair comparison and I think most laymen would be equally stupefied by the dense stuff that comes out of legal academia as they would the stuff that comes out of physics academia.
