When do admissions start?

Recommended Posts

For those currently in school right now, do we only have to send in our transcripts for the first time once this term is over?

 Yes, i'm pretty sure that is supposed to be the case. They did send an email to some students in their final year of undergrad to send in their unofficial transcript (which definitely caught me off guard), but to the best of my knowledge, nothing has generally changed in this regard. I would still wait until the grades from this semester are finalized before sending in your official transcript for the first time.

Head's up, my Apply Alberta webpage shows that my LSAT has been officially received, y'all's(?) might be as well.

Yup! As of today! Relieved it finally got through.

Another heads-up for uAlberta students still in school (and possibly those within the Apply Alberta circle of schools which share transcripts). My partial transcript of updated Fall marks has been automatically uploaded, y'all's might be as well.

Got an email this morning saying that the next round(s) of admissions will be delayed. Imagine my elation when I saw who the email was from, and the the deflating disappointment when I actually read it. Understandable though, what with the pandemic as well as the administrative restructuring.

I think I've found the reason why the prairie schools are taking longer: none of them are real.

(In all seriousness, yes it's probably a mix of pandemic jimjam and administrative changes.)

That email near gave me a heart attack

Same here. I was excited for three glorious seconds before the letdown.

Waiting patiently for UOttawa to begin the acceptance for 2021.

Multiple people have been accepted to UOttawa for 2021 already. You're in the UofA forum. (You also seem to have posted in the 2018 accepted thread asking about this.)

Oh my bad. I was referring to next year admission. Didn't know this is for Alberta too.

There are different sections on the forums to categorize different conversations/threads. Under the name of the conversation topic you can see which section it was posted in. 

I'm confused by your question. The application cycle to begin law school in 2021 started at the end of 2020 and runs until this summer. Do you mean the next cycle/to apply to start law in 2022? That's almost a year from now so you'll be waiting patiently for quite awhile.

Update - my English proficiency has been verified in the checklist which is "fulfilled upon review of test score/official transcripts" - I suppose this means they've begun to review my application. 😭 I need to stop refreshing the page.

    • If your aim is to be in government, it's a different calculus than private. Private firms seem to be more skeptical of policy roles, even in relevant subject matter. They prefer someone with an "interest" in the subject matter but who's picked up hard legal skills - even in a different subject.
    • Do you have an idea of why it doesn't draw a lot of interest? 
    • If the policy position is in the same field, it would seem to be relevant experience and not just a "filler" position. I have no relative experience for this question, but would imagine the transfer from policy back to law would become more problematic the longer you held the policy position, but shouldn't be too problematic early on (and "I took an available position in my area, but am interested in moving back into law" is a decent sales pitch if you take a later job interview). For example, if you did the policy job for 1 year, then went to move back to a firm, your "lost time" is less as you've hopefully gotten the relevant exposure to the law, but aren't senior enough that there's an issue in learning to be an associate (ie. handling grunt work). It may even be beneficial experience as it adds a different prospective to the problems. However, 5 years of policy before moving back? Might be a different story, as you are more closely aligned with a 2-3yr associate in realm of associate tasks you are familiar with, but probably don't want to be treated like an intro associate task-wise (all speculating, depends entirely on both policy experience and the tasks your transfer back into). In short, you're not forever excluded from looking for openings while holding the policy job, so if it's of potential interest this may be a "FT is better than contract" conclusion. And who knows, maybe you love the policy job?
