Daylight saving time caught me by surprise. I'm not a happy camper

You certainly aren't the only one...

So I ran into an old friend who's now a lawyer and graduated from the law school here.  I said to her "it's great to see you, how long are you in town" and gave her a hug.   She turned out to be a girl from my class.  With make up on, she's a dead ringer for my friend.  She's very reserved and proper.  I have never felt so awkward in my whole life.  I explained that I thought she was someone else.  That probably just added to the awkwardness.

I don't see anything unethical about keeping the fact that he's applied to law school under his hat. There are good reasons why he wouldn't want current employers to know this until he knows where and what he's going to be doing. And as far as adcoms go with regard to content posted here, I totally agree with his decision to limit as much as possible their ability to zero in on his app. How many people have ddubbed even a single post for that very reason?

+1. The voice of reason in this madhouse.

Guys. Just a reminder. On FB, do NOT mention that I've applied to law school.

You can use cryptic or vague messages to ask about my cycle, or just PM me.

My applications are getting held for further review left and right.

Held for further review >>>>>>>>> A rejection notice.

The short answer:
You would have an easier time finding work in the US with a Canadian JD than vice versa.

The NCA sets notoriously difficult standards for foreign lawyers to practice in Canada. This obviously includes American lawyers. However, due to mutual agreements between Canada and certain American states (e.g. NY and CA), you can literally sit for the state bar without having to pass equivalency exams.

As for working in Canada without citizenship. That may be difficult. If you're a landed immigrant (resident alien), you may not have difficulty (otoh, employers may care).

I've lived in Saskatchewan, B.C., and Newfoundland. All beautiful places, friendly people, and a lot of things to do.
Have family in Alberta and Manitoba.
But, regardless if I loved or hated any of these places . . .

Just saying. . . . .


Nunavut is a territory..

I think we can all agree that the territories are absolutely terrible. This discussion concerns provinces only.

Law apps are annoying. NYU still hasn't responded. I was getting slightly excited by the prospect of a joint JD/JD through Osgoode/NYU. Still pending at Berkeley as well (not very impressive ECs).

Also, nothing from Canadian schools...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How much time did you spend studying?

I studied for 2-3 months - only 1 of which was intensive.

Your mileage will vary though.

Since when did you two become "bestest high fiving" buddies?

Ah viruses. Both virtual and physical. They bring people together.

That's a big stretch of interpretation.  A tech question was asked and I put in my $.02 since I know a lot about such matters.  I don't think it makes us "bestest high fiving" buddies.

When people ask legitimate questions that I know something about, time permitted, I answer them.  Simple as that.

I think if I disliked someone I would let them stew in their malcontented state.

But then again, that's me.
