Unclear, but it appears as if it might be according to the website.

Cycle endear today for me Hand written note from the Dean of UVIC tell me how happy they are to welcome me to the community, this along with speaking to a number of member of the Aboriginal bar(consenus if I want to do Aboringal law I would be make a HUGE mistake not to take UVIC) and the Co-op porgam has made me decide on UVIC over UBC. Very happy

Well law school and this commitment (which will cause me to incur serious debt) is life changing and I have to do what makes sense for me. I LOVE it here, the cost of living sucks but the people are great.

No way, he'd be happy. Thomas abhors Yale.
TL,DR: He blamed affirmative action for preventing him from getting a job after Yale?? k..

Maybe this is just me but I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to be SCOTUS. I know it's prestigious and all, but...meh.

Most people probably would think I'm crazy.

Well, it only makes me admire you even more.

I don't think healthy-minded people go for SCOTUS.

Although I still wanna clerk for them

Congrats to Chrissy and Miracle for your amazing acceptances and scholarship gains! Oh and congrats to Fresh for Yale. I can't believe I got that last one in so late...
