Accepted Calgary 2020

erinl2

As we did last cycle, please keep the Accepted threads clear of extraneous discussion.  They will remain more valuable and easier to navigate.

A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats that someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not a place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. Off-topic posts will be deleted. Thank you!

Sometime in the first week after the holidays (so after Jan 5th) because I wrote the Nov. LSAT n they weren’t going to upload those scores to files until after the holidays.

Congrats everyone! I got my offer yesterday.

cGPA 4.09/4.3 LSAT 158

Lot's of ECs and work experience, but no ties to the area.

I'm not sure if I'll accept, as I've got a few other offers on the table.

    • I did it and thought it was fine too -- make friends who live close to the law school who don't mind letting you crash at their place. A lot of events at the law school take place during the day. I wasn't someone who went to every CTTB (and would not have even if I lived closer) but I found it totally doable to be involved and make friends.   This was the timetable from this year (first year courses are highlighted) -- of course, you wouldn't be in every first year section (in each semester, you will have your small group + LRW or LP + 2 large section classes): https://www.law.utoronto.ca/academic-programs/academic-handbook/timetables-and-exam-schedules/timetable-first-term
    • I’ve been lurking this forum for a while and there is a wide consensus that if you want to make money you will pursue Bay St.    As someone who knows nothing about the law or about compensation in different areas of law, I would like to ask those more experienced than me for insight.    is Bay st the only way to make good money? How difficult is it secure well paying employment out of law school? ive been reading on this forum that some articling students make only $2000 net in areas like criminal law. That scares me because I currently net $5000-7000 a month which will go down to about $3000 net during law school.    I’m obviously choosing to go to law school to be in a better position in the future than I am in now. What areas of law do you guys recommend for the highest return on investment?
    • Is this true? I always thought that if you had a big PSLOC they would expect you to use it and not give you a bursary.    I will be going to Osgoode, can someone who’s been through the process shed some light? 
    • An important note I'd like to add is that if you are not interested in business, sports, or technology, a business law career may not be for you. Do not feel forced to apply to positions you have little interest in as it will only further breed unhappiness.  While I agree that many people working in Biglaw have an interest in business, sports and technology, and this makes it easier to converse with them during interviews, keep in mind that most of the clients you represent in this field are also from these industries. If you have no interest in any of these things, are you really the best lawyer to represent their interests? How are you going to find the motivation to put in the hours and get the work done? It makes little sense to pursue a business career if you do not have an interest in business. I think employers nailing down on this during the student recruitment process are absolutely right to do so. The attrition rates in Biglaw are high as they are because people realize this fundamental fact a little too late.  Female representation is growing in many fields outside of Biglaw (still growing here, just slower). After all, there are more women than men going to law school now. Almost everyone I work with is female and there are many women in senior management positions within the government and public interest fields. There is a lot more diversity and inclusion in these sectors. I would strongly encourage you to rediscover why you went to law school in the first place - which you stated was to be a part of change and to help vulnerable people. You can still do that. Do not chase something that was never meant for you to begin with. If you are going into 3L or graduating, there are many government, legal aid, public interest, and personal services positions that will come up throughout the year. Apply to them. Figure out what your passion is. Do what you were meant to do.  Law students can be cruel. At the same time, you do not have to engage with these people after you do your time in law school. The legal profession is a lot more inclusive and friendly and people really do try to help each other out. Lawyers do not sit around gossiping about their colleagues, comparing marks and talking about job prospects. You can find your place in this profession.  On a final note - do not be afraid to put people in their place. This is a skill all lawyers should have, as you will deal with difficult people everyday. Confront and educate people on their ignorance and negativity. You will be surprised at the results. People are often unaware that they may be hurting someone with their actions and viewpoints. But once awareness is raised, it is up to them to decide how they want to deal with it moving forward. And most people do not want to ruin their own reputations by rubbing their peers and colleagues the wrong way. Sometimes people just lack an understanding and all it takes is a simple conversation to get things steered back on track. 
    • From what I’ve seen, new licensees get two certificates (those often seen framed in lawyers’ offices). Is anyone aware as to how we can obtain ours? Will the LSO be mailing them to our address on file?
