I'll be applying to both Calgary and Alberta and would be happy to attend either. L20 schools are definitely favourable to my GPA trend. I was just curious what separates them. I've heard lots of good things about the city of Calgary. I just haven't heard a lot about either school.
Hi there! Do you have any insights into the French JD? I'm bilingual (English first language), and a former French colleague of mine really urged me to go for it after she heard my French. Only thing is, would it be hard to get a job after since the LSAT isn't required? If you survived three years of law school could employers still care about a nest you did or didn't write years ago?
Also, I've taken graduate seminars in French at UO before and I was allowed to submit everything in English as long as I participated in the seminar in French and did the assigned readings - which were obviously in French too. Would the French JD work the same way? I ask because I don't know how good my French writing would be under the exam conditions.
I am sure you see these posts enough but of course as a nervous applicant I need my own thread. My stats above based on what I have seen are average or even below (like my cGPA) and I’m wondering how I’d do, especially at queens? (Closest to current residence). My personal statement is just average, but my LOR’s are strong, both from professors. I don’t know if it even makes a difference, but I discussed how in first year I competed on an international level for ball hockey, which also happened to be my worst year for grades.
Thanks for the feedback!
