Usask transfer after 1L

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows how many students approximately transfer to USask every year for 2L? Also what sort of grades put you in a safe place? So if class average is a B and you’re lingering around a B+ is that good enough? Thanks!!

I can let you know next week about how many students transfer TO u of s, but I would guess not too many. It’s not a hotspot haha. I would still guess you’d be looking at B- to B+ average to be safe though!

I want to say that there were two students last year? Both 2Ls coming from other schools. I have no idea about averages. If you contacted Usask admissions, they may be able to give you a better idea!

could you also let me know how many spots they have for transfer students and if they were able to fill all of them. This is taking into consideration that my grades will be spread from B- to A-. Thank u soo much. appreciate it !!!!

I'd recommend calling Doreen in the admissions office. She would be able to give you more concrete answers to your questions.

I would guess that it was not many people wanting to transfer, my understanding is that about 15 people per year transfer out of usask so there's space

    • 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.
    • Just for context, I have written the January LSAT and received my score recently via email. I noticed under my LSAC account that the schools I have applied for have requested my LSAT scores. So my question is for those who are familiar with the process, how long on average (or in your case) did it take for LSAC to send your LSAT scores to the schools you applied to?  Thank you in advance and have a great week.
    • @rkathleen covered most of it but I'll try and expand on that.  Disagree on the vacancy rate. I think you should be looking at least by April/may. After that you are competing with a lot of people (houses are worse than apartments tho). I would recommend a place somewhere on the 4/14 and/or 15 bus line. It's the best situation really, you have access to uvic and downtown in only one bus ride (same cannot be said for other areas).  $1000 is going to be tough for apartments near uvic. If you could go $1200-1300 then you might have a shot at some of those. A room in a 4-5 person house is going to be around ~$500-600 and for a 2 bedroom apartment/basement anywhere from $600-1000+.  Used Victoria is what most people use to list. Craigslist is less used in Vic. Also lots of apartment rental companies have their sites and so I would Google those and ask about the waitlist now!! Depending on if u have a car or not (or even are willing to bus 30-40mins), esquimalt and other farther regions are cheaper and some even nicer.  If you do end up rooming, I would make sure that it's with a fellow law or grad student. Most of these rentals are going to be undergrads and well we like to party.  Lastly, just on residence, if you were able to get a grad apartment in South tower (newest residence building) then I would highly recommend it. It's much cheaper than off campus and clean.
