When you all look at your USask application status via this link, are your transcripts still showing up as red, or are they black?  Mine are both showing up as received 17-Jan-18, but are red.  Wondering if they will remain red until they get my transcripts from this current semester.

I am currently enrolled in classes this semester, however I hope they still look at my application with just my previous grades last semester and consider me before waiting for this semesters grades.

It says on the site it will remain red until your final May grades are received. I imagine they'd look at your file before that though, someone reported a conditional acceptance in their 2nd year so theirs was obviously reviewed.

My "message of the day" says: "RECEIPT OF DOCUMENTATION ON STATUS PAGE IS CURRENT as of Feb 15, 2018." -- but on the left panel, it's still saying my application was received 08-Jan-18 (which is normal, that's when it was received).

Are you saying yours has changed on the left panel?

Yes, the left panel has changed. It previously said it was received on Nov. 17 (or somewhere around there) up until yesterday.

Oh okay, sweet! Hopefully there's some acceptances on the way. I wrote the Feb LSAT so I'm not expecting any updates either way until scores are released. Keep us posted, good luck!

@CatticusFinch

Mine is showing red I emailed them and they said they will wait for feb and then update the lsat Score, I don' know if they will send a decision before that or not, but the areas for lsat will remain red until that Feb result comes in

Hi all,

I was just wondering if those of you who wrote the February LSAT still have your LSAT Score appearing in red on the application page?

Thanks!

Nope, not as yet @Cody94

Based on previous years I am estimating they'll be updated/uploaded some time later this week.

I think Doreen sets up weekly packages for Tuesday/Wednesday consideration for the admissions panned. So random groups get date changes on Monday and usually get word later that week!

    • I am more of an ambivert - I can be either introverted or extroverted, depending on the situation. For job interviews, I would generally be on the extroverted side of the spectrum. I also had the maximum number of interviews, and I was cautioned against it by people who thought it would be too much. This was some years ago, but from what I remember, it was unnecessary to do that many. It wasn't very exhausting for me, but I realize that the law school view of what is "hard" or "too much" or "tiring" is completely different from my experience. I had been through things in life much more intense and difficult than making small talk at a bunch of interviews and dinners, so it was fine. Some people found it hard to be "on" for so long, but that's where the extroverted tendencies help - that part was kind of fun when it wasn't terrifying or alienating. It does get complicated when you start getting into second and third interviews and dinners and so on because you can't do all of those and have to pick and choose.  So my issue wasn't so much the pace of the interviews, but just that it became apparent that there were only a few firms I had an interest in and a bunch of them where I really could not see myself working at all, but then I felt committed to keep selling myself to them having gone that far in the process. And of course you get caught up in everyone else's anxiety, so while it wasn't too demanding physically, it was emotionally - the extroverted side of you likely has lots of friends from law school going through the process and lots of 3L friends rooting for you and so my phone was constantly going off with people wanting to know how it was going, offering advice, complaining about their situation, etc.  As it turned out, I was able to predict which offers I would and wouldn't get and they lined up more or less with the firms where I had more of an interest, so there were a bunch of useless interviews where it was obvious I wasn't interested in them or them in me.  I would think 10 or 12 interviews are plenty and you should be able to narrow them down, but 20 will not be impossible, it's just silly.  I assume if you got 20, you have very good grades and an interesting resume, and if you're saying you're more of an extrovert, you're likely decent in interviews. I wouldn't think you have to worry about 20 interviews to maximize your chances of getting hired - that seems overly cautious to me. 
    • Just an FYI for whomever may be reading this, more than one account isn't allowed. If you have a reason for setting up a throwaway, it should be cleared with the mod team first. We can't be having every student who goes through the OCI process having duplicate accounts.  To the OP: you can continue this thread with the new account but for this thread only.  Once you receive answers to your questions, the second account will be suspended.
    • 1. I was referring to the difficulty of going from, say, Osgoode to a job in New York. Every year some students are hired by firms down south. (At U of T it can be as much as 10% of the class.) But these positions are highly competitive and firms are very grade selective. With respect to American law schools, conventional wisdom is that NY Big Law is the easiest market to get to. No one cares about ‘local ties’ in NY—and, more importantly, there are a ton of jobs. (The most competitive market is probably Washington, DC.) However! It’s still hard in the sense that you can quite easily go to a T14 law school and fail to secure a position.  2. It doesn’t really matter. You will have one year of work experience baked in to your student visa. Then, once you have a job, you apply for an H1-B through your prospective employer. If that doesn’t work out, you can fall back on NAFTAs TN status (knock on wood). You may be at a disadvantage with smaller firms, but the big shops hire foreign nationals all the time.
    • Thanks for the reply. 

      The two main issues you identify are cost and not being able to work in the public sector. I'm 99% sure that I want to work in the private sector, so the unavailability of public sector work isn't a problem for me. However, the cost is definitely something I'll have to consider; 300 grand (or more) is a hell of a thing to go through life with. I'd like to clarify a couple things:

      When you say "You can go to the NY from U of T, Osgoode, or McGill—but, that said, if your overriding concern is working in the US, you should know that it’s hard to pull off" are you saying that it would be difficult to pull off if I went to a Canadian law school, or difficult to pull off even if I went to school in the US?

      Would not being a permanent resident, as opposed to just not being a citizen, significantly impact my ability to find work in the private sector?
