A non resident needs tips

Recommended Posts


I got accepted into the Sept 2020 intake and I am from Alberta. I was hoping to get some insight about what a first year student should do to prepare for the move to Victoria. In terms of housing, packing etc. Any input is appreciated.

It's not much different than moving to any other city. I would suggest you start looking in late May/early June. Transit is not great, so if don't have a car look for a place close to the university. Try to avoid places East of campus, such as Cadboro Bay, because you'll have to walk across campus to get to the Fraser building and it'll be harder to get downtown for events and stuff. I don't have much advice for packing (obviously depends on whether you look for a furnished place or not), but one thing you might want to consider is moving in mid to late August. A lot of stuff happens during the first two orientation weeks, it's an extremely fun but also busy time and you want to be settled in at that point.

    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.  
    • Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.
