  1. I did the calgary recruit with just B's and was called back for interviews... Not sure if it's purely about grades
  2. my dear friend you did so well on your other classes. Don't worry, you have the whole term next time to bring your grade up it's only 1 CREDIT remember this!!
  3. Guys, this zoom thing is torture. What’s your predictions for fall 2021? I really want to say 30% in class and winter 2022, 100% thoughts?
  4. Please spare yourself from the administrative nightmare LOL enjoy your freedom while it lasts
  5. Uottawa, dec 22 till Jan 04 (common law section only) while the rest of the school gets until Jan 11th....... ugh
  6. 1L at UOttawa. My experience is good and bad. Good: - I sleep right until the alarm and crawl to my computer - super close bathroom and constant access to the kitchen for coffee or food - living at home, saving lots of money, being close to my family/ significant other - I write exams in my comfort zone. I have exam anxiety and writing it at home is really nice - imposter syndrome is less. Why? Because you don’t see people’s smug face after an assignment or exam. You don’t feel the anxiety in the “exam room.” You avoid a lot of those negative toxicity from people because you can simply *mute* Bad: - time zone difference. I live in the west, so I have to be up 2 hours earlier for my classes. My fall semester consisted of 8am classes... which is 6am here. - friends are hard to come by unless you try extremely hard. It is hard to gage who you’d get along with unless you try messaging them on fb or something - the constant policing of social media: this may be controversial. We share a group chat with our small group. The expectations are to say the right things at the right time. Social media is weird, some words are typed weird and people get upset. I feel forced to share my social media (Instagram/ Twitter / Facebook etc) in order to connect with my peers. Normally, if I were in person, I’d become friends with these people first prior to adding them on socials. - the learning curve is very steep. It’s hard to learn anything online especially with law school. - lecture videos are pre recorded sometimes... and they’re long and boring - zoom lectures are awkward and too much screen time. I haven’t moved from my computer for the whole semester. I am a big sloppy potato by Christmas - feeling like you suck at everything and sucking at it alone
  7. Depends on which gpa is higher, either overall or l2. Upward trends are favourably looked on.
  8. Not attending U of C, but just reading off their website, they’re intending to “welcome students back on site” for winter. But did mention things might change.... the optimist in me hopes for a blended format at UOttawa
  9. Have you applied out West? I’m sure U of C would love you. They tend to take high lsat scorers and median for GPA
  10. Short answer: - it’s a community and you can learn a lot from this place on where to begin your law school journey and onwards (I.e., articling and work). — I was 16 when I wanted to go to law school. This form helped me navigate through everything, especially with the Lsat and all the info on different schools I’ve would have never had a clue about. It’s been a long time, since I’ve officially joined in 2014. I intend to keep posting because this is my community. I’ve also made some great friends on here too that are in my class. Also, I type 100 wpm and have a great social life. I promise I’m not a loser..
  11. I was #75 on the waitlist out of province. I had the same email telling me that since I’m out of province, they’re refusing me lol. SO close, the last waitlist acceptance was #69 a few weeks ago.
  12. I emailed them and asked them for my rank. I guess they forgot to send it out? Any who for reference, World Rank #8
  13. Congrats! When did you receive your acceptance?
  14. Are you a general applicant or access?
  15. No. Uottawa is so unpredictable, you might get an acceptance any time or you might not
  16. Are you currently an international applicant? Or are you in province / in Canada
  17. Did they give you this information? I was told I placed on waitlist and they will provide me a rank. But nothing so far
  18. You could always bring this up to the fb page. Torts Group E right? I’m in that group. There’s also a fb group chat for this group.
  19. Starting this off. Waitlisted this morning. 3.56 cgpa 3.78 l2 154 lsat no interview
  20. I’ve removed myself off the waitlist
  21. I had the same problem, and so did another friend of mine. No emails.
  22. For students who are deciding to move to Ottawa this fall, I've created a peer support group/chat for the upcoming semster. I hope that this chat will provide support for students in the city during these tough times! Please PM me for the link Thank you
