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?
Is it a good idea to try and get rejected for a PSLOC?
little bit of background, I’ve been working for the past year and have saved up a good amount to finance my law degree. From my understanding, law schools require you to apply for PSLOCs and ask for how much you have used for bursary applications. Now, if I were to get rejected for a PSLOC would that mean I have a higher chance of getting a more favourable bursary?
Does anyone also know if it’s mandatory to go to the schools reps if you’ve been rejected?
I'm just creating this post as a PSA. For those who are accepting their offers, you will need to send in your tuition deposit before you can full accept your offer. Because I'm an anxious person, I was tracking my order daily. My deposit sat at the university for almost a week, and this was driving me nuts! Just to make sure there was not a mistake, I emailed Doreen, and here was her response to me:
Access to mail is weekly, and Student Accounts attend on campus once a week to process mail and deposits, so it is taking a bit longer to complete some processes. This will not affect your acceptance. As soon as we receive confirmation from Student Accounts that they have received your deposit, your Supplemental Item list will be updated, and your acceptance will be finalized.
I hope this can help ease any anxiety you might have if you are in the same boat.
I'd read them once and maybe more if you have time. Realistically, you won't benefit much by reading them twice but it might help a bit.
Some questions are quite simple. Stuff like which courts hear which types of cases, how long you have to file various things, and so on. Not much thinking involved.
Others are quite stupid. You might have a PR question where you have a problem and the question consists of choosing which of the four things you should probably do should be done first.
