  1. Accepted to Osgoode 2017

    I wrote the LSAT September 2016. The wait was killing me, I'm just glad the acceptance came eventually.
  2. Thank you all for the help. I should have been a little more clear in my original post, but I was referring more to the copyright/tm side. That being said, this was all very informative and I'll probably explore a bunch of different areas once I start off. Once again, thanks for all the help!
  3. Hello everyone, I'm a 0L and starting at Osgoode in the fall. This is kind of pre-emptive but going into school, IP Law is one of my standout interests. However, when I look at job postings for positions in the field, it seems like firms overwhelmingly look for an applicant with a science or engineering background (I did polisci). Would taking the appropriate courses at Osgoode or perhaps doing their specialized intensive offset this requirement? If anyone who works in the field knows, that would be great. I'd like to avoid taking a bunch of IP courses if I can't actually work in the field post-graduation. Also, I acknowledge that it's too early for me to decide what area I want to practice in 100%, I'm just kind of curious. Thanks!

  6. Waitlisted at Osgoode 2017

    Hey, I decided to accept.
  7. Waitlisted at Osgoode 2017

    I got the call at like 1:30pm. I already accepted a spot in the MGA at UofT Munk. I'm really conflicted now BC I thought I'd written off law school but I'd basically assumed Osgoode wasn't gonna accept me.
  8. Waitlisted at Osgoode 2017

    Waitlisted yesterday. Received a call today with an acceptance, have until 3pm to decide.
  9. Waitlisted at Osgoode 2017

    Waitlisted today. In queue since Jan 17th. CGPA: 3.61 LSAT: 163, first write Filled out part b. Not too bummed. Decided to go with an MGA at UofT over offers at Queen's and uOttawa. Hopefully this helps with an idea of what the waitpool looks like
  10. That means that Carleton has accepted you into their end of the program, but your acceptance to the joint program still relies on getting Ottawa's acceptance.
  11. I applied for both the MA and joint program. During the first round of NPSIA acceptances in February, I received an e-mail from Tabbatha telling me I had been accepted to NPSIA but to wait for an official e-mail. I emailed her back and asked if this was for both the joint program or just the MA, to which she replied it was just for the MA and asked me which one I would prefer. I told her I prefer the joint program, and she told me then I'd have to wait til they get around to the acceptances. Today, I received an e-mail from Carleton's graduate studies department welcoming me to the joint program. My status has also changed on Carleton Central and now shows my acceptance.
  12. I just got an e-mail accepting me into the joint program. It also updated on Carleton Central.
  13. Getting a JD and Not Pursuing Law

    Fair enough. I live in Toronto, so I have more than my fair share of access to law schools.
  14. Getting a JD and Not Pursuing Law

    Probably not, I can't imagine doing a PhD which is why I only applied to "professional" MA programs. I'm probably more interested in work in policy analysis, research positions with non-profit organizations, or Consulate work (which is where I am interning right now).
  15. Getting a JD and Not Pursuing Law

    Thank you! I guess the main issue is I do genuinely like to study the law, but I cannot see myself being a lawyer (of any kind). It put me in kind of a bind, because I've been prepping for so long. As silly as this sounds, I'm a K-JD (if I decided to go to law school) and this has kinda always been the plan. I didn't really consider the idea that I would start doubting/questioning myself this late in the game. Prior to this year (my final year of undergrad), I had no intention of even applying to MA programs until I discovered how much I like the study of IR. I genuinely love researching and am very interested in learning more about the field in general. I also honestly did not expect to get into all these programs, so I wasn't anticipating having to make such a big decision.
