Spring Scholarships

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the spring scholarships have all been given out?  For example, the "highest mark in X class" awards?

Thanks!

I can't speak to whether all of them have but I can confirm that at least a few have been issued.

Crim does, but I think LRW has just the one.

I wouldn't expect to hear back before September about application-based awards. I think I received my award letter in early Nov last year...

No problem! :)

They split the money in half between the winter and fall semesters. Since I had already paid my fall tuition, that money was refunded to me sometime in November. You can add your bank account info on Beartracks to get a direct deposit; otherwise, it will be sent out by cheque. 

For the winter semester, the refund went through sometime in February. So, basically, you should be prepared to pay the tuition yourself and get refunded for the award later (after the term refund deadline passes).

Assuming @Alterion isn't mistaken, which seems like an awfully safe assumption, there are at least 2 for LRW.

Perhaps they have discretion where if multiple students at the top of the class have work that is essentially indistinguishable in quality that they can hand out multiple awards.

It would make sense especially in the context of LRW where work is graded by different people based on learning groups which creates a bit of a luck element when comparing students who are apart by 1% or less in their grade for the course

They could also just give a medal to the top three or one for morning and one for afternoon. *shrugs*

Yes there should be 2 LRW awards. There is a list somewhere on the website showing a total of $2500 and I received $1250.

    • Hey all, I was looking at the Applicant Info Bulletin 2020-2021, and I noticed I qualify under the individual consideration category as a "mature applicant". While I definitely don't feel mature, I turned 25 in March so technically I qualify. I haven't really had any sizeable hardships at this point, so would it be worth it for me to apply under this category? I've got a self-calculated index of 74.51 (which is on track to go up to a 75+ when I get my fall grades, and I realize fall grades won't be counted if I apply IC), so I think I could get in regularly off the waitlist.  Thanks in advance!
    • I'm not OP but I want to weigh in: Is law school super hard? Depends on who you are and how you study. Some people find it considerably more difficult than others. There's no singular study method that works best. Personally, it hasn't been much harder than my bachelor of arts. Is their cliques? Yes. High school never ends. There are always cliques. There will be cliques in law school and there will be cliques at your future law firm. Do professors actually care? In general, yes. TRU law professors seem to care quite a bit about their students in my experience.
    • That's very subjective and I can't really answer that. It could be any number of things that deviates from the norm. Imagine the norm being applying to law school in your last year of undergrad with nothing but summer retail jobs (there's nothing wrong with retail, it's just not unique) and a few club memberships on your resume. If you're that type of person with an average GPA (70%) and an average LSAT (150), you don't really have a good shot at law school.
    • Got an in-firm from Sangra Moller a week ago in a non-OCI school, Btw would anyone be as so kind to PM about their Vancouver In-firm experience?
