The actual statistics: 96% of TRU Law students have a job lined up before graduation.
The % of students securing big law position in Vancouver/Calgary/Edmonton has increased year-over-year, I think it's around 30% right now.
If your goal is to work in BC or Alberta, you won't have any trouble finding work with a TRU law degree.
TRU is lacking in alumni out east, which makes it harder to rely on the alumni network if you're trying to work in Toronto, but that's slowly changing. Most TRU students are from BC/Alberta, so not many TRU alumni even try to work in Ontario.
ME TOO! My heart damn near launched out of my throat 😆
I keep trying to read tea-leaves on this too. Cognitively I understand that we are living in (largely) unprecedented times, and I am beyond empathetic to everyone trying to administrate universities right now, but all those thinky-bits don't alleviate all the BIG NERVES in my feels
I received my first LSAT score for Nov and I am not satisfied with it. (Most likely won't get me an acceptance)
However, I think I want to keep it.
I registered to do the LSAT in Jan. I indicated in OLSAS that I am doing it in Jan
How do I inform Law schools that I am redoing it and that they should consider my Jan score? What is the best communication method - Email or phone?
great perspective. But yes I am very aware of the opportunity cost-- thats my whole hang up.
Why are you deciding to switch? what kind of salary are you giving up?
you can DM me if that is more comfortable.
