I feel this year they are being generous as i checked last year thread, wait-listed people seems being more competitive than me. All of them have LSAT higher than 165, and acceptable CGPA. Maybe because of the COVID-19.
In BC 1L students do literally anything/everything.
A lot of 1Ls volunteer for LSLAP (Law Students' Legal Advice Program) which is a clinic run by UBC but open to volunteers from any Canadian law school. It gives students practical experience from drafting memos to attending small claims hearings with the supervising lawyers.
I worked for my city's tourism board. A lot of people worked as servers in restaurants. My SO went back to her retail job for the summer. Some people with connections did office work at law firms. Some people took the summer to travel.
You can do literally whatever you want during your 1L summer.
The one thing you shouldn't do in your 1L summer is nothing. Don't sit around at home playing video games all summer. Do something that you can talk about in an interview. Whether it's traveling, working retail, volunteering, etc. just occupy that time somehow.
Hi! I was accepted May 12th on condition that I pass my French exam which I did, and got the score I needed! Those who were accepted have until July 13th to submit their results, and I am sure from now until July 13th there will be a mini wave of acceptances of those who did not meet the conditions of the French exam! I hope you get in good luck!!
