Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say best of luck to all of you next week! It's been a pleasure airing out our anxieties together and I hope some (or all) of us will end up being 1L classmates next year! :)

The post says "those with completed files by Nov 15." If my first LSAT was in Nov, and my scores reached around the 26th, would my file be considered incomplete then?

I think so... I feel u...

I did LSAT back in July but my procrastination caused me to finish the writing in early Nov, and just checked LSAC, they sent the report to OLSAS on 16 Nov. I'm so hating myself right now.

I am kinda relieved these next 4/5 days won't be torture for me, but also more anxious because now I have to wait at least another whole month 😣

Let’s petition @erinl2 to bring it back!

Please don't. Once the threads are merged, the other title disappears. 

Seriously, guys, some of us actually have busy lives dealing with work and children. Oh, for the days when our biggest concern was getting the title of a thread on ls.ca changed!  ;)

Not sure if this warrants a new thread or not, so I'm just putting this here -- did anyone else just get an email about a new blog post, but then the tumblr doesn't have any new posts?

I got this as well, super confused. Maybe they double posted by accident? The tumblr isn’t updated yet it still says last post was on dec 9th but I got another email rn saying that they updated on the 11th

yes, the email I got said they updated it today, December 11th, which is why I'm confused, since it isn't just an accidental re-send of Wednesday's email.

Yeah its possible that the email had the date as a variable... I don't have anything in my inbox. Is everything else the same as the December 9th email?

I still think it’s gonna start on the 14th (even though I hope it starts today), just not sure why the email was sent today bc the blog hasn’t updated to match it.

    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
