Uqam Winter 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone was planning on applying and/or has applied for the 2018 winter semester at Uqam?

If so, have you done anything to prepare yourself for the possible interview?

For the people who have previously applied in the winter period : does everyone get an interview? Or might we get rejected right away if our grades are too low?

Also, it seems like the questions are quite similar every year, so should I still prepare for the ones I saw in previous treads?

Thanks for your replies :)

Hi! I've applied for winter 2018. I'm going to prepare for the interview (if i get it) by reading as much as I can on political/legal issues and prepare some answers from previous questions asked. 

What are ur stats?

Good luck! :)

Hey! Same situation here. I applied with a 3.38 GPA. Pretty sure I will get refused but still, cost nothing to try.

Hey yall :)

My GPA is around 3.2-3.3 I believe (not too sure because mine was on 10 at uOttawa, so not sure what it is on 4.0 or 4.3).

I'm also pretty sure I will not get in but like you said JC0001, what do we have to lose lol.

What are your stats Choco23?

Let's keep eachother updated :) hopefully we'll hear about them soon!

Application for UQAM have been decreasing since a couple of years, so if we are lucky the winter GPA minimum will be less than last year (hoping!).

Usually the admission results are send at the end of november!

The average GPA of the last person who got an interview for fall 2016 was 3.5, it went up to 3.6 for fall 2017 ( the semester I applied ). Also, it was 3.5 for winter 2016 and went up to 3.55 in winter 2017. Just thought it would be useful information for you guys ! This is what you can find on UQAM's website : 

Automne 2017

Moyenne universitaire du dernier candidat préselectionné (base universitaire) : 3.6 / 4.3

Hiver 2017

Moyenne universitaire du dernier candidat préselectionné (base universitaire) : 3.55 / 4.3

Statistiques en date du 2017-07-17

 

I also did the interview for fall 2017 so don't hesitate if you have any questions ( PM me ) ☺

Hey guys!

Best of luck to all ^_^ !!!

For those of you who will get an interview, here are most of the possible questions:

1)      Pourquoi  voulez-vous étudier en droit et pourquoi à l’UQAM?

2)      Parlez de vos implications politiques, sociales ou communautaires.

3)      Parlez-nous de votre parcours-cheminement. Qu'est ce qui vous a mené jusqu'ici?

4)      Que pensez-vous des médias ?

5)      Parlez-nous d’un événement important qui se passe au Québec ou dans le monde. Expliquez-nous pourquoi vous croyez qu’il est important OU Parlez-nous d'un événement marquant dans les nouvelles.

6)      Parlez-nous de quelque chose qui a rapport avec la culture : un livre que vous avez, une pièce que vous avez vu, un concert…

7)      Si vous étiez ministre, couperiez-vous dans l’éducation ou la santé ? Sur quels critères ou principes, baseriez-vous votre décision ?

8)      Parlez-nous d’une personnalité que vous admirez et pourquoi ?

9)      Decrivez votre idole dans le monde juridique?

10)   Il y a une usine qui fait beaucoup e pollution, mais crée beaucoup d’emplois, est-ce que tu décides de fermer l’usine ou de la laisser ouverte ?

11)   Quel événement marquant a eu lieu à l'extérieur de Québec ? Et pourquoi est-il important ?

12)   Définissez démocratie ou totalitarisme. Donnez des examples.

13)   Expliquez la situation des Autochtones.

Unfortunatly I didn't. It was too far from my home (living in St-Jerome). UQAM and UDEM are my only two choices right now.
