Does anyone else think the 1L schedule is f*cking stupid? 

A three hour break on Tuesdays, Wednesdays off, and we don't get to leave until 3:30? Why not let us decide our own schedules like multiple other universities so we don't have to sit with our collective thumbs up our asses for two-three hours a day? 

And no, I don't need a lunch break, I'm a grown up.

Which Universities let their 1L class decide their schedule?

I think the expectation is that you'll probably use the gaps to do something called "reading". 

Of course, you're fully entitled to sit there with your thumb up your ass like the "grown up" you are.

I know for certain Dalhousie, Robson Hall, and the U of A do.

At Dal we do not pick our own schedules in 1L. We're randomly assigned one of three first year sections (A, B, or C) and the schedule is completely determined for us.

On the bright side, having your thumb up your ass might prevent you from speaking out of it.

Okay, listen here, ass hat. I like to do my reading at home, the way I've been doing it for the past four years during my undergrad. Obviously it worked for me since I got into law school. I'm not interested in lugging my books all over Hell's half acre trying to find a quiet corner of the library or student lounge to read in when I can do it from the comfort of my couch with an old fashioned. Furthermore, I don't need someone to block out time in the middle of my day for me to do my readings since I'm a night owl as is. It would be much more productive for me, and undoubtedly others, if we could set our own schedules. By the way, the period goes inside of the quotation mark. Idiot.

I think I once passed through Saskatchewan by train, and I've flown over it a number of times. But seeing comment excerpts in the sidebar attracted me to this thread.

I was just wondering why OP is so against a lunch break. If she doesn't want to eat lunch okay, but why should other people be denied the opportunity?! Eating in class is problematic for multiple reasons (sound, smell, sight, spring to mind). And what's wrong with having a day off in the middle of the week, in which she could study all day at home, sipping old fashioneds?

1. Bold of you to assume I'm a "she."

2. If other people want to eat lunch, fine, schedule yourself a lunch break. That's my point, there's so much more utility when we set our own schedules. People eat in class all the time. And "in the middle of the week" is precisely the problem. Why have it Wednesday and not Friday? Three day weekends? See where I'm going here?

Law schools always set the schedule for 1L. 

@MaryCherry  If, indeed, you are a grown up, please act like one and refrain from calling people names here. Our rules are few but one of the few is don't be a jerk. Dial it back if you plan to continue participating here. Thanks.

This is one of the strangest complaints I've ever read on these forums.

    • In firms are offered to all students (OCI school or not) at the same time on call day and take place during the proscribed interview week. And because I’m sure someone is wondering, those who did OCIs don’t have any kind of leg up over those that are interviewed for the first time in firm - once you’re in the door for the in firm you’re on the same footing. You just got there by different routes.
    • Hey all, Was hoping for some input on this as I've seen contradictory things and could use some advice. I've lived in Ontario my whole life and for various reasons am going almost certainly going to want to practice in Ontario after I finish schooling. I am however sick and tired of this place, and would love to spend the three years of law school in the glorious place that is British Columbia. I'm 99% sure I have the grades/lsat to get into UBC, but is it advisable to go to school across the country from where I plan to practice? I luckily have some sort of network here in Ontario already (Friend's family has a close relationship with a firm that operates in the exact field of law I'll likely be practicing in) but I'd rather not rely on that and would like some input. Thanks in advance, sorry if this topic has been beaten to death but I'm either a moron or searching things is kinda hard here.  .
    • Hey guys! so unfortunately I was rejected to the schools I applied to for sept 2019 and will be re-applying. I am wondering if in my personal statement I should mention that I applied last year and what I have been doing since my last application that makes me different. Is it worth mentioning or would it be a red flag for admissions to read a personal statement that says I’ve already been rejected prior. Any info on this will help! Thanks guys!
    • Hi everyone, Today I have been opening up/ getting ready to open applications in 6 Canadian Law Schools, UVIC being one of them. I don't know why I expected there to be a place where they would ask for a resume/CV from me. But so far I haven't really seen such places on the applications I have opened. Is this normal? If so, do schools typically just want me to include all extra curricular/ achievements in my personal statement?  Don't know anyone else applying for Law school so any input is appreciated.  If needed for reference I am applying to UVIC, UBC, U of A, U of C, TRU, U of Sask. 
    • Thanks so much for the reply! That's good to know.
