  1. Hey all, I have a few questions in regards to the courses offered at uOttawa. 1. What courses teach you how to draft legal documents? 2. What courses teach you oral advocacy skills? 3. Are there any personal injury courses? 4. What courses teach you about how jurors make decisions and how to prepare and present evidence at trial? I couldn't find the answers on the uOttawa website, would be great if someone could help me out
  2. Thanks guys for the feedback!
  3. Thanks! I wrote the lsat twice, and got 157 both times lol
  4. This is a double post in error! Hoping one of the mods can correct/merge this!
  5. Hey all, Does anyone know if paying the $500 deposit will make a provisional acceptance firm? I have to pay by June 1st, but I am on the waitlist at Osgoode and want to remain there until the ultimate deadline of July 4th (hoping to get in there as it's my 1st choice). Will I be removed from the waitlist if I pay the deposit? Thanks!

  8. Hey all, I was accepted at Ottawa back in March, and had basically made up my mind that I would go there as I did not expect to get in anywhere else with my stats. For reference, my cGPA is 3.5, my L2 is 3.88 and my lsat score is 157. Much to my surprise, I was accepted today at Queen's! I'm very happy to have options, but I'm conflicted. Was wondering if anyone could share some advice on which school they believe would be the better option and why? This is what I'm currently conflicted about: Queen's seems to have a better reputation, but Ottawa seems like a much better city to live in. Also, Ottawa seems to be thought of as a lesser school than Queen's in terms of ranking, employment prospects, and possibly even the administration. Not sure how accurate these statements are, but that's what I've read on this site .... Also, I'm from Toronto and plan to work here when I graduate. Not necessarily sure if I want Bay Street/Big Law, but I do want to work in the GTA.
  9. Accepted today. 3.5 cGPA, 3.88 L2 157 LSAT
  10. LOOOOL
  11. Rejected last night. 3.5 CGPA (without drops) 157 lsat
  12. I am on the waitlist, and this is what my OASIS account says: Your file has been added to the wait pool from where new offers of admission will be drawn. Offers will depend on the availability of space in the class and a further review of your file in comparison to others in the pool. While decisions are made as expeditiously as possible, notification of an offer may occur at any time up to the start of classes. So I suppose that means you could be on the waitlist up until September?
  13. I have two questions in regards to scholarships offered by uOttawa, hoping someone can clarify for me! 1) if you've been awarded a scholarship, is that something that they notify you in your offer of admission? Or do they do it separately/after you accept/etc? 2) my understanding is that to be considered for a scholarship all you had to do was to fill out the financial questionnaire on uOzone ... is that correct? Thanks!
  14. I'm in the same boat! Been "awaiting evaluation" since Dec. 12th, 2016. Not expecting an acceptance at this point, just feeling kinda ripped off that I paid the application fee to not have my file looked at & probably just straight out rejected. I understand that they might not be able to review every applicant (and that it might not make sense to do so once they've accepted enough ppl to fill their class) ... but I would have hoped that I didn't spend time applying and writing a personal statement for nothing. Oh well, that's life!
  15. Rejected May 1st. Not sure what uVic calculated my CGPA as but according to OLSAS it's 3.5 LSAT 157 Not upset about it tho! uVic was my back up to my back up plan. I'm an Ontario resident and I'm in at uOttawa, so no sour grapes here! Hope my stats can help others and future applicants with gauging their likelihood of getting in.
