As we did last cycle, please keep the Admitted 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 someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not the place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. OT posts will be deleted. Thank you!

Congratulations. Your LSAT scores are amazing !! Is your L2 verified or a self-calculation?

I guess that the OP is either from STEM background or something special.

Otherwise he / she won't get in with 3.1 L2.

It's self calculated. How would I go about getting it verified?

I don’t think that’s necessarily true because at this point, U of A isn’t even reading personal statements. People are strictly being accepted based on numbers. They won’t look at any any other factor until they get to the holistic round.

    • Hmmm. I wonder is that means that Edmonton is less competitive in a way? I know a few people from Bond who are working as they normally would. Similar road as any other person with an international degree. Although all three are working at private firms, no big firms.  I have also heard that local people get precedent. Chatting on this thread again just makes me happy I wrote the lsat and am going the normal route. Although everyone's path is different.   
    • I don't really know about the variance in culture, but it's possible that more rural locations might be getting more local applicants, whereas the bigger cities are getting applicants from all across Canada. If your firm is getting applicants from all of the "top" Canadian law schools, someone who went to Bond probably starts off lower down the rankings during recruitment. Whereas a smaller town might have had the vast majority of its applicants go to local law school X.  I love the Gold Coast and wish I had gone to school there, but I've had about a half dozen friends go to law school at Bond and they all went because they couldn't get into a Canadian law school, so the assumption that employers make isn't without merit. All of my friends have had a tough time finding employment after they've returned to Vancouver, and their job outcomes have ranged from articling at small firms in the suburbs to doing an LLM at UBC to make themselves more competitive for bigger firms to being hired as a contract lawyer by a large firm.
    • Thanks for the comment! I asked a friend in Calgary and she said the same thing as you! So potentially they feel the same in Calgary. Do you think there is a variance in culture maybe? It would be interesting to see what the response is in Saskatoon for example. Or even more rural where it might be less competitive.  I've definitely heard it described as a "backdoor" way of going to law school. Although, it's more work so not really sure it it is worth it. But I know some people just go because they want to live in Australia and don't mind tacking on the extra time. Expensive though.   
    • Hello, everyone in BC please email Law Society (Member Services) if you have been affected due to COVID-19, I have sent them 3 emails till now, and haven't received a reply. Please email them so they take some kind of action. 
    • it might be difficult in general for you to switch to in house though, covid or not. Boutique litigation doesn’t really lend well to that
