  1. So I know that first day of enrolling is the 22nd of June, but I just wanted to familiarise myself with the system. If I'm understanding this correctly, the following is the procedure by which first-years sign up for courses: First, select the relevant small group course that they'd want to register for. For example, I might want to sleep in a bit on Thursdays, so I might choose CML 1203 D (Small group bloc 8). The class number for this course is 25228. Then, select a "thematic course" that they'd like to take. To do this, you'd head over to the course search engine and filter the class level to show only "First Year Thematic {English Program Only)". So let's say I chose Public International Law- the class number would be "13769". After I'd decided on those two courses, I'd head over to the Student Centre and open the enrollment module. There I'd enter in the two class numbers (25228 and 13769) and the two courses should be added to my shopping cart. I'd check out and the University of Ottawa's system would basically generate a timetable for me based on the selection of Small Group Bloc and Thematic Course. Assuming that this is correct, I had a few questions. Is the enrollment module not ready for use yet (I don't mean actually enrolling, but just adding courses)? I tried to enter in the Public International Law class's number and it added an anthropology undergrad course. I tried searching for it (within the enrollment module) using the specific criteria (law/lecture/exact class number) and nothing came up. After I actually enrol, I can't make any further modifications, right? I'll probably call UOttawa tomorrow, but thanks in advance. And any tips on enrolling/course selection would be much appreciated (e.g. are there any courses that are useful to take because they satisfy multiple upper-year course requirements)!
  2. Waitlisted at Western 2017

    Waitlisted too LSAT 166 cGPA 3.55 (I mistakenly wrote 3.4 on my other two posts)
  3. cGPA 3.4/LSAT 166 Chances?

    I was wondering about this since I remember seeing someone in the acceptance thread with a LSAT score of 170 (I think mid 3.x cGPA) who only seemed to have been accepted in April.
  4. I wrote the LSAT in February and have non-existent EC's but have decent LOR's. Should I be optimistic about my chances?
  5. Accepted to Ottawa 2017

    Accepted a while back, just discovered this forum. LSAT - 166 cGPA - 3.4 Non-existent EC's and strong/decent LoR's.
  6. Questions about Deadlines and Waitlists

    @Tree17 I guess I'll call OLSAS and UOttawa during lunch tomorrow. EDIT: According to OUAC's site, it seems automatic? https://www.ouac.on.ca/faq/difference-between-provisional-and-firm-acceptance-olsas/
  7. Questions about Deadlines and Waitlists

    Oh my god I feel so stupid... Ok so I fixed that. Thanks so much! I'm not sure that's necessary, after what you've said what, but I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much! Just curious, if I were to get additional offers after the 21st, how would they be sent to me? Would I find them on the OLSAS module, or maybe on the respective university's sites, or maybe via email?
  8. Hey sorry in advance if this has been covered somewhere else on the forum. If it has, please feel free to redirect me to that thread/post. My stats are: LSAT - 166 cGPA - 3.4/4.3 Non-existent EC (had medical issues) and decent LORs I got accepted into UOttawa sometime back and am under review for every other Ontario school (except Windsor, which strangely just rejected me back in January, no idea why). On the OLSAS module, I had selected "provisional acceptance" at the time that I received the offer. I am now eyeing the April 21st deadline. Anyways, I got a notice from OLSAS pointing out that my acceptance wasn't submitted. My understanding, from the OLSAS site, was that if I selected provisional acceptance and I hadn't selected any other school I would automatically roll over into committed acceptance in June. The advantage being that I could still be considered for other law schools. If I don't receive any other school offers by the 20th of April should I change my status from provisional acceptance to committed acceptance- so as to keep my offer from UOttawa? If I were to change my status to committed acceptance would I be removed from consideration to any other law school? From what I've read on the forums/reddit some wait list applicants are still offered admission well into May. Should I be optimistic about my position on waitlists and possible offers? According to the Admission's Predictor, I have as good of a chance of getting into Western as Ottawa, with a slightly lower chance of getting into Queen's. Considering my non-existent EC and weak GPA, do I have a shot of getting into those other two schools via waitlisting? Thanks so much!
