  1. Looking for a place to live

    Check out Kijiji, they are constantly updating daily and have lots of last-minute options because of this. Also, Point2homes.com is good: https://www.point2homes.com/CA/1-Bedroom-Apartments-For-Rent/ON/Windsor.html Also, Marda Management may have some decent listings: http://www.mardamanagement.com/rentals.html Good luck!
  2. JD 1 academic ref/ and 1 professional

    100% go with the women's shelter reference. That would look great on any app, but especially one for Windsor because of the social justice angle. I would without a doubt go with that reference in your position. Best of luck!
  3. Hey Mods you can delete this if you want, I got through to the admissions office and all is good.
  4. Hey everyone, As I alluded to in the title, I made the COLOSSAL mistake of not paying my non-refundable deposit by the June 1st deadline. I accepted my offer firmly via OLSAS in March, but in the e-mailed acceptance package I received from Windsor it explicitly states that my admission to the program could be revoked if I do not pay by the June 1st deadline - which, technically I did not (though it has been paid now - 2 days late on Sunday). I've e-mailed Windsor and tried calling them, got through to the Associate Dean's office, but then bounced back to the main University and disconnected. Associate Dean's office said they don't handle this type of issue, that some other department makes these decisions. Will be calling them back and trying to get through to the right people. In the meantime, I'm wondering has anyone had any experience with this - do you think there's a legitimate chance my admission will be revoked because of this late payment, despite my firm acceptance back in March? I'd like to hope that they would at least reach out to me before revoking my admission, but I really have no idea how it works. I will have a nuclear meltdown if I get booted from the program, considering I also rejected offers from 3 other schools for Windsor. I wonder if I DO get booted from Windsor and I explain my case to any of those other law departments at other schools if they would consider re-offering admission? I am grasping at absolute straws here... Thank you in advance for any advice or guidance.

  10. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Hey sorry for the super late response! Yes that was a 3.43 cGPA and 3.65 L3. Just came to say I will be declining in favour of Windsor. Good luck to everyone!!
  11. Mature Applicants Accepted/Rejected 2018

    I was accepted into TRU about a week ago. 3.65 L2/L3, 158 LSAT. Obviously they don't have a "mature" category, but my application outlined my life story/experiences as a mature student, so who knows if that had an impact! I will be declining for Windsor. Hope the rest of you guys get some replies soon, it really seems like a lot of schools are backed up this year! (especially Ottawa wtf man!). Good luck everybody!
  12. Currently a 1L Single JD - Ask me anything!

    Hey BabyLawyer! Thanks for doing this. I have a question for you: what does your class schedule look like this year? Is there class everyday? did you have any say in the determination of your class times (like undergrad choices), or were you just assigned a class schedule that was ready-made? Thanks!
  13. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Hey, yes I did! In their e-mail from mid-January to me, they said to expect an answer around late February/early March when my LSAT score comes back, so clearly they were waiting for it before making the decision. Also, for what it's worth, I will likely be declining this offer for an Ontario school, so good luck to the rest of you!
  14. Accepted to TRU 2018

    Accepted at 2:16PM EDT 158 LSAT 3.43/3.65 GPA, mature student
  15. Chances 141 LSAT 3.74 cGPA?

    Yasmine, your cGPA is very impressive, but unfortunately your LSAT is far too low at the moment to be accepted anywhere. On the bright side, changing your cGPA is HARD, while improving your LSAT is (still hard) but much easier, relatively speaking. That's good news for you, very good news. Check out www.reddit.com/r/LSAT - it's a good community to join and good resource for tips and strategies. The LSAT is a very learnable test. It is not an indication whatsoever of how good of a lawyer you will ultimately be. But you have to face it head on and get serious about where you need to improve. Most people have to study for at least 4-6 months in order to get a half decent score, and many many people study 8-12 months in order to reach into the 160+ range. Take this as a challenge along the way that you need to embrace and overcome in your overall journey to law school. Buckle down and get some prep books - PowerScore LSAT Bibles are a good place to start. 7sage on YouTube is also a great resource.
